WHAT IS CREATINE?
Creatine is an interesting molecule that is synthesized in the liver from three amino acids - arginine, methionine and glycine. 95-98% of creatine is stored in the major skeletal muscles of the body while lesser amounts are found in the heart, brain and testes.
SPARK YOUR MUSCLE’S ATP RESERVES
During exercise, creatine is used by the body to maintain adequate levels of energy-rich ATP. ATP (adenine triphosphate) is your body’s premier source of energy for many metabolic processes. Athletes who seek to achieve optimal performance during high intensity exercise will often load creatine as a nutritional supplement to spark their ATP levels. Many types of exercise, such as weight lifting and sprinting, can challenge ATP stores. Thus, taking additional creatine as a supplement can help promote physical performance and also delay exercise fatigue by boosting the skeletal muscle’s ATP reserves. When muscles use ATP for energy, a chemical process takes place where the ATP is broken down into two simple chemicals, ADP (adenosine diphosphate) and phosphate. As ATP is converted into ADP, energy is released that gives muscles their ability to contract and perform well. The majority of creatine released in muscles binds with phosphorus which is then converted into creatine phosphate. Next, creatine phosphate reacts with ADP in your body and then converts ADP back to ATP again. This process continually supports your body’s ATP energy supplies for muscle energy.
