Creatine is stored as phospho-creatine in muscle cells and it supplies an extra phosphate group to regenerate ATP during high-intensity muscle contractions.* Creatine can increase your capacity to do high-intensity anaerobic repetitive work by about 15%. That means on any given set, you should be able to do one to two more reps with extra weight. In addition to increasing work capacity, creatine builds up muscles by lowering myostatin levels (elevated levels inhibit muscle growth), improves cell signaling of satellite cells (that help with repair and new muscle growth), and reduces protein breakdown. Creatine can augment the effects of exercise on lowering blood sugar.* Recent research shows that creatine may also lower blood trigylcerides and increase exercise capacity in heart patients. Creatine has been shown to have neuroprotective effects, and may possibly improve memory formation and retention. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
