Titans, we hope you are CRUSHING July! 

Let's talk about Creatine.

What is it?

Creatine is a naturally occurring compound found in small amounts in certain foods, such as meat and fish, and it is also produced by the body. It plays a crucial role in energy production, particularly during high-intensity, short-duration activities like weightlifting or sprinting.

When taken as a dietary supplement, creatine monohydrate is the most common and well-researched form.

Why should you be taking it?

Creatine supplementation can help increase the body's creatine stores, leading to improved power output, enhanced exercise capacity, and reduced fatigue. It works by replenishing ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the body's primary energy source, allowing for greater energy availability during intense physical exertion.

In addition to its performance benefits, creatine has also shown potential therapeutic effects in various health conditions, such as neurodegenerative diseases and muscle-wasting conditions. However, further research is needed in these areas.

Who should be cautious with this supplement?

Creatine is generally safe for healthy individuals when used as directed. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those with pre-existing kidney or liver conditions. As with any supplement, it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before starting creatine supplementation.

Creatine, as all other supplements, are there to help you during your journey, not to do all the work for you.
