Creatine is actually a combination of three amino acids - glycine, arginine and methionine. However, this simple combination also involves a large number of complex biochemical reactions in vivo. These amino acids are the basic components of your body that produce energy forms in muscle cells, complex adenosine triphosphate, and ATP. Creatine (creatine phosphate combined with phosphoric acid) is an essential substance for muscle to generate energy when the muscle performs explosive contraction or when it performs intense contraction for no more than 8-12 seconds.
Most creatine in the body is produced by the liver; Most creatine is used in muscle tissue. Creatine is not one of the essential nutrients for human body, because healthy human body can produce creatine by itself, and can also obtain creatine by eating meat food.
However, almost all dietary creatine comes from meat or meat products. Therefore, vegetarians are recommended to use creatine to better help themselves improve their performance.
Creatine monohydrate, the most popular creatine supplement in the market at present, is named after the combination of each creatine molecule and one water molecule, with a creatine content of 88-90%.

✓ it plays a neuroprotective role
The two main functions of creatine monohydrate are to maintain intracellular water and promote the production of ATP in muscle cells, that is, to increase muscle energy. Of course, the maintenance of water does not directly represent muscle enhancement. Creatine monohydrate only provides the promotion of muscle synthesis. In fact, muscle enlargement mainly depends on protein synthesis, that is, the increase of muscle cells.
1. Improve the performance level of sports during sports: for high-intensity training such as explosive strength, it is often necessary to supplement creatine monohydrate. Therefore, only when the exercise is intense and muscle endurance and explosive strength are required, can the supplement of creatine monohydrate produce effect. Because the large amount of muscle movement requires more explosive energy, and the explosive energy comes from the ATP CP function, so creatine monohydrate will largely supplement this energy form. This way of supplementing energy during exercise also provides intermittent endurance support, reduces fatigue caused by lactic acid and increases the chance of explosive force
2. Increase the muscle circumference during the rehabilitation period, so as to increase the muscle strength, including explosive force: this effect is especially reflected in competitive sports and bodybuilding sports with high muscle circumference. Bodybuilding does have high-intensity training, but it also requires increasing muscle circumference. In fact, muscle enlargement mainly depends on protein synthesis, that is, the increase of muscle cells
