What is Creatine? #QoW

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

What is Creatine?

Creatine Monohydrate is a naturally occurring acid that helps supply energy to cells. Some foods contain creatine monohydrate but it's often reduced or destroyed by cooking. Creatine supplements can be used for a pre and post workout boost.

Creatine increases your body's ability to quickly produce energy so the idea is that with more energy, you can train a little harder, faster or heavier. You only need to be thinking about a creatine supplement if you're weight training in a big way.
