Is creatine just for bodybuilding/men? What's it good for?
Believe it or not, EVERYONE can benefit from having creatine before their workout!
Cyclist's ♀️ it's been shown to improve glycogen synthesis when combined with a moderate carbohydrate diet. Those extra carbs stored in muscle also gave those cyclists a significant edge when it came to powering late-stage sprints in a 120-kilometer time trial race.
Sprinters ♀️ An increase in muscle creatine stores has been shown to increase sprint or repetitive sprint performance by up to 20 percent. Also valid for stop-go sports like hockey, and soccer
Improves quality of workouts ♀️ creatine pairs well with carbohydrate and water intake for supporting your hydration and thermoregulatory status. For athletes and gym-goers, it means an easier time exercising, especially when it’s hot outside.
Enhanced Recover Creatine is making its mark for after workout recovery due to the recent discovery that supplementation leads to faster glycogen re-synthesis after workouts, less muscle cramping, and fewer incidences of muscle tightness or strain
Better Brain, Bones and Body 🤯 In older individuals, the use of creatine has been found to offer a number of benefits, namely to skeletal muscle, bone, and brain health. It may be that creatine levels support a greater anabolic stimulus to muscles and work to either directly or indirectly support the process of bone remodeling.
The effects on brain health are also quite interesting. They are not exclusive to older individuals, as creatine taken by young female vegetarians has also resulted in better memory. The research suggests that low creatine levels in the brain could be a factor in mental fatigue
