Generally, main benefits to take creatine are as follows:

1)To increase muscle recovery
2)To increase endurance
3)Muscle growth


With the increasing of scientific finding in the sports supplement, the more products available in different type of fitness-related needs. Creatine is one of them. Creatine has become one of the most popular sports supplements among ‘power endurance-related’ athletes such sprinters, weightlifters, boxers, swimmers, wrestler etc. This writing may helps athletes to understand how the creatine works for the body during the high-intensity workouts.

When an athlete take part in exercise, a compound in the cells called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is used to create energy. It releases one of its phosphate molecules to form ADP (Adenosine Diphospate). And in every releases of phosphate, energy is released for use.

To re-produce the energy, ADP has to be converted back to ATP. Its means that it needs phosphate. But the problem is that the phosphate that is stored in our body is limited. So, you need the "phosphate"  to re-form ATP, it's mean you need creatine.

How's it work? Creatine is converted to creatine phosphate in the body. Creatine speeds up the process of producing energy by giving its phosphate to ADP to reform ATP. Now the ATP is ready to create the energy again.

Indeed, creatine supplementation make difference. However you'll need to understand how and when to consume them in order to maximise the benefit from it.
