What is Creatine?

Creatine (Cr) is a natural compound, which is synthesised by the liver, kidney and pancreas from three amino acids: arginine, glycine and methionine.1 It can also be consumed with foods, such as red meat, fish, seafood and dairy products. Around 95% of the total creatine in the body is stored in the skeletal muscles as phosphocreatine, readily available to be used during muscular contractions.3 The rest of it is found in the heart, brain and testes.3

Creatine is used in energy metabolism as it provides a rapid source of energy that can be used to boost mental and physical performance. Due to such effects, it is widely used by athletes and fitness enthusiasts as it may result in improved performance, including increased fat-free mass, force output, power output and high-intensity exercise. Creatine is also important in maintaining the brain energy metabolism, which is beneficial for all cognitive tasks.3

Creatine is a well-researched nutritional supplement with proven efficacy and safety.

Key benefits:

  • Improved physical performance
  • Higher energy levels
  • Better cognitive functioning

Mechanisms of action:

Creatine is converted to a high-energy compound called phosphocreatine by creatine kinase and is subsequently used in the rapid resynthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Once in circulation it is used by the cardiac and skeletal muscle and brain.2

Recommended dosage of Creatine:

For maximum results, creatine supplementation should be split into a ‘loading’ phase followed by a ‘maintenance’ phase. The loading phase should be 20 g/day or 0.3g/kg/day for 5-7 days followed by the maintenance phase of 3-5 g/day to maintain the increased creatine levels in the body.2

Side effects:

Creatine supplementation is very safe, with no scientific evidence to suggest that creatine use within the recommended dosage has any negative effects on healthy individuals.1
