This product is considered a dietary supplement. Creatine is an amino acid, a constituent of proteins. It is mainly stored in muscles as creatine phosphate.
Some believe that an increase in muscle concentrations of creatine phosphate improves the level of energy during brief, high-intensity activities.
Creatine is found in red meat, milk and fish. Each day, we ingest about 1 to 2 grams. It can be synthesized in the body from arginine, glycine and methionine.
Used doses: Loading dose of 20 to 30 grams daily (in divided doses) over a period of 3 to 7 days, and a maintenance dose of 2 to 3 grams is taken each day. If the loading dose is omitted, the beneficial effects will appear less rapidly.
Used doses: 10 grams per day.
