Creatine and Muscle


Creatine is a natural substance that is present in almost all vertabrates. It’s a key component in skeletal muscle metabolism. Creatine is by far the most researched supplement in regards to the muscle and sports industry.

I am not a big supplement pusher or user, they scream SCAM most of the time. However, creatine is one supplement that has been shown to be effective that I do use and recommend.

How Does Creatine Work?

Without getting all scientific, Creatine works by increasing the amount of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) molecules inside our cells. It creates energy for our muscles. This energy is called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) and it is important to understand that ATP is essentially the fuel that the human body recognizes. ATP is important in anaerobic exercise (lifting heavy weights). Thus we want to make sure our Creatine stores are at their max level.

Best Type of Creatine

Creatine Mono Pic 144x250

There are so many types of Creatine out there it can get confusing. As I mentioned most supplements aren’t worth the money by any means, but Creatine actually is. But you have to understand it is still a supplement and therefore it is part of a multi-billion dollar industry.  Every couple months there is going to be some new sexy Creatine that is claimed to be leaps and bounds better than the original Creatine Monohydrate. But don’t be fooled by the marketing, it is just another way to sell you something proven and true at a higher price.

Creatine Monohydrate is the best and only form worth using. Read that 10 times!

Creatine Monohydrate has been tested in hundreds of published trials/studies and regularly proves its effectiveness and safety over all the other types.

The cheapest and most pure form reigns king

There is no secret to taking Creatine as there are no secrets in most things. Just simple effective steps you need to take consistently to see results. Hate to burst your bubble, I could give some complicated and fancy way to take Creatine but that is all smoke and mirrors. Buy some Creatine Monohydrate and follow the dosing instructions on the back of the bottle. BOOM!


Creatine is a cheap effective supplement that provides more energy to our muscles so we can lift more, potentially recover faster, and build more lean muscle tissue. It is a worthy supplement in your journey to build a lean, dense muscular physique that looks great both in and out of dapper clothes.
