What Is Creatine And How Does It Work

Posted by: Chris

Creatine is a compound that is naturally made in our bodies to supply energy to our muscles. Creatine is formed from amino acids arginine, methionine, and glycine through a chemical process. The chemical name for creatine is called "methylguanido-acetic acid." Creatine is manufactured in the liver and may also be produced in the pancreas and kidneys.

Creatine may promote muscle growth by stimulating protein synthesis. There are two possible actions involved, the first is increased amount of creatine and water absorbed in muscle cells. As more creatine is stored, more water may be brought into the muscle cell potentially increasing the size of the muscle cell. Studies show that when the muscle cell is volumized, it may trigger protein synthesis and minimize protein breakdown. The second possible action involved is simply due to the increased work that your muscles can produce due to their increased energy content and delays in muscle fatigue.
