Creatine Monohydrate Facts for Rookies by Zach Bashore
Creatine is a favorite supplement among bodybuilders to enhance
their physiques. Many people question whether creatine is safe to use and
wonder if it is as dangerous as steroids. You are going to learn the basics
of creatine use, what it does for your body, and some of the false
interpretations of creatine. After reading this you should then possess the
knowledge to determine whether or not you should use creatine.
Creatine is naturally made in the body and comes in many of the
foods you eat, which is why they cannot ban it. Foods such as salmon, tuna,
and beef contain trace amounts of creatine, but your best sources are from
Creatine Ethyl Ester or Creatine Monohydrate because they carry more
creatine per weight of product than any other available source.
Creatine can increase lean muscle mass after only a weeks use. It
also speeds up your recovery rate, increases energy, improves endurance
levels, and even accelerates fat loss. Creatine also increases muscles`
growth, making your muscle muscle fibers bigger and stronger. This happens
because creatine super hydrates muscle cells with water.
To many people confuse creatine with anabolic steroids, which is
not the case. The media is mostly to blame for this because they do not have
proper knowledge on the matter and use it as an excuse to why they are out
of shape. "Creatine causes heart problems," "Creatine makes your testicles
shrink," I`ve even heard a guy say that he hates people who use creatine,
but why? It is completely safe.
Creatine is relatively a cheap supplement and one you shouldn`t
be spending an arm and leg on anyways. My personal experience with creatine
made me gain a solid three pounds after two weeks use but I lost that weight
after I quit supplementing with it. Other people easily gain more weight
than that but I try keeping fat gain to the absolute minimum. So if you want
to experiment with creatine, don`t be afraid to give it a try. Just be smart
and know what you`re doing beforehand. Until next time, later.
