Creatine General Information
Creatine is an amino acid produced by the liver and kidneys, and can be derived from a diet that consists of meat and animal products. Unfortunately you would need to eat about ten pounds of meat to have the same amount of creatine, as you would get by taking twenty grams of Creatine monohydrate. In the body, Creatine is changed into a molecule called "phosphocreatine", which is an organic compound found in muscle tissue and capable of storing and providing energy for muscular contraction. Also called Creatine phosphate. Phosphocreatine is especially important in tissues such as the voluntary muscles and the nervous system, which periodically require large amounts of energy. Creatine plays an essential role in the energy metabolism of a muscle by helping replace the energy burned during exercise so you can train harder.

Creatine Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Studies have shown that Creatine can increase the performance of athletes in activities that require quick bursts of energy, such as sprinting, rowing, and weightlifting, and can help them recover faster after expending short bursts of energy. Two scientific studies have indicated that Creatine may be beneficial for neuromuscular disorders. According to one study, it is suggested that the neuroprotective effects of Creatine in the mouse model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gerhig’s disease, are due either to an increased availability of energy to injured nerve cells or to a blocking of the chemical pathway that leads to cell death. This amino acid has also been found to help with congestive heart failure.

By Greg Arnold, DC, CSCS, March 8, 2007, abstracted from “Creatine for treating muscle disorders” in the 2007 issue of Cochrane Database Systematic Reviews. Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a group of more than 30 genetic diseases characterized by progressive weakness and degeneration of the skeletal muscles that control movement. MD can occur in infancy or childhood, while some cases may not appear until middle age or later. There is no known cure for any form of MD, but existing treatments are numerous and include physical therapy, respiratory therapy, speech therapy and drug therapies such as corticosteroids, anticonvulsants, immunosuppressants and antibiotics. From the researchers, “evidence from randomized controlled trials shows that…creatine treatment improves muscle strength in people with muscular dystrophies and is well-tolerated.”

Creatine Dosage Information
Amino acid supplements prefaced by the letter L, such as L-Creatine, are more similar to the amino acids in the body than those that start with the letter D, with the exception of D-L phenylalanine, which treats chronic pain. The standard dosage is 20 grams a day for one week, followed by 2-5 grams as a daily maintenance dose. Creatine can also be obtained from eating a mixed diet that includes animal products such as herring, pork, salmon, beef, cod, and milk.

Creatine Safety & Interaction Information
Creatine has not been shown to have adverse side effects; however, people who exceed this dosage could be at a higher risk of developing renal disease. Those with renal disease should not take Creatine. Consuming Creatine right before or during exercise is not recommended. Caffeine may reduce or eliminate any benefits of Creatine by inhibiting phosphocreatine resynthesis, which takes place in the recovery phase of exercise.
