Creatine is a nitrogenous (nitrogen-containing) organic acid that occurs naturally in the body. It is produced in the body from amino acids, mainly in the liver, kidneys, and pancreas. This process utilizes the amino acids arginine, glycine, and methionine. Rich food sources of creatine include meat and fish. Creatine can also be made scientifically in a laboratory.
Creatine is converted into creatine phosphate, also known as phosphocreatine and stored in the muscles and brain where it is used for energy. Approximately 95% of the total creatine in the human body is located in skeletal muscle. Creatine plays an important role in making the energy that muscles need to function.
Creatine has been shown to increase athletic performance and also increase muscle mass when used in conjunction with a resistance training regimen. Strength and power increases with the aforementioned increase in muscle mass, therefore improved gains can be made with high intensity resistance training or other activities. Creatine supplies energy to the cells and helps to maintain optimum performance. This process occurs because creatine phosphate is converted into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a major source of energy within the human body.
