Creatine is a substance that is found naturally in muscle cells. It helps your muscles produce energy during heavy lifting or high-intensity exercise. Taking creatine as a supplement is very popular among athletes and bodybuilders in order to gain muscle, enhance strength and improve exercise performance. Chemically speaking, it shares many similarities with amino acids. Your body can produce it from the amino acids glycine and arginine. Several factors affect your body's creatine stores, including meat intake, exercise, amount of muscle mass and levels of hormones like testosterone and IGF-1. About 95% of your body's creatine is stored in muscles in the form of phosphocreatine. The other 5% is found in your brain, kidneys and liver.

What Is Creatine?

Creatine is a substance that is found naturally in muscle cells. It helps your muscles produce energy during heavy lifting or high-intensity exercise. Taking creatine as a supplement is very popular among athletes and bodybuilders in order to gain muscle, enhance strength and improve exercise performance. Chemically speaking, it shares many similarities with amino acids. Your body can produce it from the amino acids glycine and arginine. Several factors affect your body's creatine stores, including meat intake, exercise, amount of muscle mass and levels of hormones like testosterone and IGF-1. About 95% of your body's creatine is stored in muscles in the form of phosphocreatine. The other 5% is found in your brain, kidneys and liver. When you supplement, you increase your stores of phosphocreatine. This is a form of stored energy in the cells, as it helps your body produce more of a high-energy molecule called ATP. ATP is often called the body's energy currency. When you have more ATP, your body can perform better during exercise. Creatine also alters several cellular processes that lead to increased muscle mass, strength and recovery. SUMMARY: Creatine is a substance found naturally in your body — particularly in muscle cells. It is commonly taken as a supplement.



How Does It Work?

Creatine can improve health and athletic performance in several ways. In high-intensity exercise, its primary role is to increase the phosphocreatine stores in your muscles. The additional stores can then be used to produce more ATP, which is the key energy source for heavy lifting and high-intensity exercise (10Trusted Source. Creatine also helps you gain muscle in the following ways:

  • Boosted workload: Enables more total work or volume in a single training session, which is a key factor in long-term muscle growth
  • Improved cell signaling: Can increase satellite cell signaling, which aids muscle repair and new muscle growth
  • Raised anabolic hormones: Studies note a rise in hormones, such as IGF-1, after taking creatine
  • Increased cell hydration: Lifts water content within your muscle cells, which causes a cell volumization effect that may play a role in muscle growth
  • Reduced protein breakdown: May increase total muscle mass by reducing muscle breakdown
  • Lower myostatin levels: Elevated levels of the protein myostatin can slow or totally inhibit new muscle growth. Supplementing with creatine can reduce these levels, increasing growth potential
  • Creatine supplements also increase phosphocreatine stores in your brain, which may improve brain health and prevent neurological disease

SUMMARY: Creatine gives your muscles more energy and leads to changes in cell function that increase muscle growth. Effects on Muscle Gain, Creatine is effective for both short- and long-term muscle growth.It assists many different people, including sedentary individuals, older adults and elite athletes. One 14-week study in older adults determined that adding creatine to a weight-training program significantly increased leg strength and muscle mass. In a 12-week study in weightlifters, creatine increased muscle fiber growth 2–3 times more than training alone. The increase in total body mass also doubled alongside one-rep max for bench press, a common strength exercise. A large review of the most popular supplements selected creatine as the single most beneficial supplement for adding muscle mass.



RECOMMENDATION

Many people who supplement start with a loading phase, which leads to a rapid increase in muscle stores of creatine. To load with creatine, take 20 grams per day for 5–7 days. This should be split into four 5-gram servings throughout the day. Absorption may be slightly improved with a carb- or protein-based meal due to the related release of insulin. Following the loading period, take 3–5 grams per day to maintain high levels within your muscles. As there is no benefit to cycling creatine, you can stick with this dosage for a long time. If you choose not to do the loading phase, you can simply consume 3–5 grams per day. However, it may take 3–4 weeks to maximize your stores. Since creatine pulls water into your muscle cells, it is advisable to take it with a glass of water and stay well hydrated throughout the day.

SUMMARY: To load with creatine, take 5 grams four times per day for 5–7 days. Then take 3–5 grams per day to maintain levels. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet. A varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are recommended.

BOOGIEMAN SHOT 100ml

Boogieman Shot stimulates more training - Pre-workouts are a group of supplements that are probably the most popular among customers. Producers wanting to offer something new and surprising, enrich their formula with various ingredients with a psychostimulating effect. For many, this stimulation is the determinant of the actual impact of the pre-workout. Unfortunately, the effects of a high-class supplement from this group should not be limited to this. Yes, the pre-workout should stimulate the body, but to meet the progressive training assumptions. The stimulation caused by pre-training sessions is sometimes so great that it leads to symptoms of breakdown, causes food discomfort, and inability to concentrate on the assumed tasks. You will not experience such effects with Boogieman Shot. This pre-workout contains a complex of ingredients stimulating the body, such as anhydrous caffeine and taurine.
