Creatine occurs naturally within the body to supply energy. It is mainly produced in the liver from the amino acids glycine, arginine and methionine. Creatine can also be obtained in the diet by eating fish and red meat. Unfortunately, vegetarians have no significant dietary sources. VPI provides a range of products to ensure you get all of the creatine you require.
Creatine powderTM is often used by athletes and weight lifters to support weight gain and muscle mass.
What is Creatine?
As a naturally occurring amino acid, creatine is stored to some degree in all cells of the human body, with 95% being found in skeletal muscle. It is also found in notable quantities in the brain, heart and testes – tissues which all have high energy expenditure.
In intense exercise your body uses creatine to provide you with energy. Natural stores only last for around 10 seconds, so many athletes supplement their diet with Creatine powderTM to raise their natural levels and enhance performance.
Creatine’s Rise to Popularity
Creatine is perhaps the most researched sports nutrition supplement, and has been studied since the beginning of the 19thCentury for its role in the production of energy in muscle. However, it wasn’t until after the 1992 Barcelona Olympics that creatine supplementation became well-known, as it was revealed that many British medal winners had used it in their preparations for the competition.
Today many athletes, body builders and exercise fans continue to use creatine as part of their sports nutrition programme. The body has been shown to adapt more quickly to more intense exercise due to the added training stimulus, bringing quicker results when combined with the correct exercise regimes.
There are a number of sports nutrition products available including creatine capsules and powder.
