Creatine FAQS

Creatine is one of the most popular and most-researched supplements in the world. It’s a nitrogenous organic acid produced in the liver that helps supply energy to cells all over the body, muscle cells in particular. Plus, it’s made out of three amino acids: L-arginine, glycine, and L-methionine. Depending on your intake preferences, creatine supplements are available in powder just like your favourite whey protein. Creatine tablets are also a great option if you’re fully on the go and don’t want to be mixing formulas in a shaker.
To increase muscle creatine levels, you should take it consistently. There are typically two phases to creatine supplementation: loading and maintenance. The creatine loading phase usually involves taking 20 grams of creatine every day (4 servings x 5g) for 5–7 days to rapidly saturate your muscles. After that, you should scale back to 3–5 grams daily to maintain your levels.
As mentioned in the previous FAQ, you can go as high as 20 grams or as low as 3, depending on what phase of your creatine intake you’re in.
Because of creatine’s ability to supply energy where it’s needed, it’s mainly used by athletes to increase their ability to produce energy rapidly, improving athletic performance and allowing them to train harder. That’s why it’s especially popular in explosive sports and activities like rugby and weight lifting.
Above all formulas, creatine monohydrate in particular is super easy to mix with other protein or carbohydrate drinks but also standard drinks. Is apple juice your favourite? Well, you can add creatine to it - no problem.
The most optimal time to ingest creatine is post-workout, as this is when your body will be most receptive to fuel. Mixing creatine with a carb source like dextrose, and/or a carb/protein combination can also help with muscle creatine saturation, as the insulin spike created will transport nutrients to the muscles faster.
This is a very popular misconception. It often gets confused with anabolic steroids even though it’s a totally natural (and legal) substance. Creatine is naturally produced in our body and we can also get it from our diets, especially with animal products such as meat and fish.
Athletically, it can be used by anyone involved in intense physical effort - think bodybuilders and powerlifters but also endurance and team sports athletes. In terms of dietary requirements, creatine truly is for anyone. Omnivores, pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans; you’re all welcome!
