THE CLASSIC AMONG THE SPORTS SUPPLEMENTS: WHAT IS CREATINE GOOD FOR?
Creatine has been shown to increase physical performance. It's a substance that's largely involved in energy metabolism. The substance is partly produced by the body itself but also ingested through the diet. Meat or fish, for example, contains a relatively large amount of creatine. That's where the name comes from; the Greek word "kreas" means nothing other than "flesh." Vegetables and fruit, on the other hand, hardly have any. Those who work out intensively or have a vegetarian or vegan diet need additional creatine – best in the form of creatine capsules or creatine powder. You'll find both at our Women's Best online shop – in proven high quality, of course!
WHAT IS CREATINE GOOD FOR IN DETAIL? WE'LL TELL YOU!
In the body, creatine is stored in the muscles in the form of creatine phosphate. When the muscles are moved, they consume energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). During this process, ATP is converted to lower-energy adenosine diphosphate (ADP). This is where the creatine phosphate comes into play: It ensures that ADP is converted back into ATP.
In short, creatine helps you provide new energy. This allows you to use your muscles more intensively, to work out longer and more enduringly. It also ensures that your muscle cells are provided with water. You get more efficient, build up muscle mass faster, and get an energy kick. And through the water retention, your muscles also look pretty bulging. 4 grammes daily already cover your needs. When taking creatine, always make sure you drink at least 2 to 3 litres of water a day. In rare cases, there are side effects when taking creatine that can manifest themselves in the form of flatulence, nausea, or diarrhoea. However, this usually only occurs in charging phases, in which large amounts of creatine are consumed in a short time, or if the creatine is dosed too high.
CREATINE AND MUSCLE GAIN: WHAT IS CREATINE GOOD FOR DURING STRENGTH TRAINING?
Creatine largely supports muscle gain and development. That's why, for example, bodybuilders have been counting on this super substance for a long time. And since it has become common knowledge how important creatine is, it's also used by sportspeople and athletes and can be used by anyone. But taking creatine alone doesn't ensure the perfect physique. The substance only yields something if you actually work out as well. It's best to take the creatine in the morning or just before the workout. At our Women's Best online shop, you'll find two variants of high-quality creatine supplements:
- Creatine powder
- Creatine capsules
While the Women's Best creatine powder contains concentrated creatine power that is gradually released by the body, you should take the creatine capsules four times daily to ensure an even power supply.
