Taking creatine doses with a carbohydrate-rich meal or snack may help you to excellently respond to creatine supplementation and reach the muscle creatine storage threshold.
Warning: Consult your dietician for optimum uses, do not exceed recommended dose. All claims are based on various studies and data available on internet, books & journals and not verified by any authority, or FSSAI.Type your paragraph here.
Creatine- Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine is found naturally in the body. It is an essential component of one of the body’s three energy systems called the ATP-PC system. The ATP-PC system provides ATP at the beginning of all activity to initiate movement including muscle contraction during exercise. This system is able to provide a large quantity of ATP very quickly, but can only be maintained for a very short time. It is the main energy source for high intensity short duration activities like sprinting and weight lifting.
Creatine supplementation could benefit those with lower than average Total Cr stores who engage in activities of high intensity and short duration especially if it involves repeated bouts. Some sports in which Creatine supplementation can be beneficial are: body building, power lifting, football, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey and some track and field events. However, the associated increase in body mass with Cr supplementation maybe counterproductive in some sporting events.
Through this energy system creatine allows ATP to be re-synthesized after it has been chemically split apart and converted to ADP to produce energy. The re-synthesized ATP is then available for continued energy production for muscle contraction.
Creatine is found in two forms in skeletal muscle, free creatine and phosphocreatine. Phosphocreatine is creatine that, as its name implies, has a phosphate molecule attached to it. At rest about 60% is bound to phosphate producing phosphocreatine(PCr). ATP (Adenosine tri phosphate) losses its phosphate and becomes ADP to produce energy. Phosphocreatine will donate its phosphate to ADP to re-synthesize ATP for continued energy production. The PCr that donated the phosphate is now free creatine. This process will continue as long as PCr is available.
About 95% of the total body stores of creatine are found in skeletal muscle
Creatine supplementation can increase performance by following way.
Many sports consist of repeated bouts of high intensity exercise with varying amounts of recovery time. In these type of activities most of the energy is derived from anaerobic pathways which makes quick recovery very important. The rate of PCr resynthesis will influence energy availability for the next bout of exercise. Phosphocreatine degradation is the major source of ATP utilization during repeated bouts of high intensity exercise. Therefore increased re-synthesis of PCr back to, or near resting levels could greatly increase performance in repeated exercise bouts.
Possible Health Benefits
Power is result of force of muscle contraction which is energy dependent. Creatine plays vital role in energy release thus helps to increase force of contraction so more power.
How creatine helps in exercise and recovery
Exercise results in high demand of ATP which rapidly depleted and gives ADP and give required energy to muscle contraction
Exercise: ATP ---(ATPase)---> ADP + Pi
High energy demand leads to depletion of ATP in muscle cell and creatine comes in metabolism to give energy for muscle contraction thus creatine depletes from cells
Exercise: PCr + ADP + H + ---(CK)--->Cr + ATP
Creatine, in the form of PCr, is essential for replenishing ATP stores that are used immediately during high-intensity exercise & PCr is depleted very quickly. During recovery period if creatine is available in diet, faster creatine replenishment ensure faster recovery.
Recovery: PCr + ADP + H + <---(CK)---Cr + ATP
Studies have shown that prior creatine loading enhances glycogen storage and carbohydrate loading in a trained muscle, new research has shown that creatine can help buffer lactic acid that builds-up in the muscles during exercise and helps in faster recovery
As per study report of Clinical Science (2004) 106, 99–106 (Printed in Great Britain) L. J. C. van Loon and others concluded that Creatine Supplementation significantly improves energy level by enhancing Free Creatine, Total Creatine, Creatine Phosphate and Glycogen
