Lets talk about Creatine...
What is creatine?
"Phosphocreatine" is associated with power output and prolonged muscle use. When you train, it depletes and muscle fatigue is triggered. Increasing creatine with supplementation has been proven to help increase "phosphocreatine"
In short, creatine increases muscle endurance, strength, and power.
How should I take creatine?
You should take 5-10 grams per day for optimal results. In most cases, the suggested use is around 5 grams.

Who should use creatine?

To conclude, creatine is a great supplement to help you get your training to the next level.
