7 Reasons to Use Creatine

Creatine is a powerhouse supplement that should be in nearly everyone’s kitchen cabinet. These 7 reasons to use creatine make it almost magical as it helps:

  • to boost performance
  • improve body composition
  • increase strength levels in both trained athletes and bodybuilding novices
  • help build muscle and strength
  • increase bone mineral density
  • reduce oxidative stress, and
  • improve brain performance

and there’s more!

Recent studies have shown that creatine is not only beneficial when lifting weights but also with interval training like HIIT-R.

Bonus Possible Health Benefits

Creatine  can also help treat diabetes, as evidenced in research published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. They found that creatine can improve glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes.

It was also found to improve carbohydrate absorption, or in other words it helps deliver the carbs we consume into muscles to be used for fuel and tissue recovery instead of storing them.

Note that for you to receive the benefits listed above you must be following a calorically-appropriate diet and performing regular, structured training sessions.

Most recently, two new studies have been published, touting creatine’s benefits with arthritic disease. One, a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study of women with knee osteoarthritis found that creatine supplementation (20 grams a day for 7 days followed by 5 grams a day for 11 weeks) led to improved physical function and lower-limb lean mass.

Another study of rheumatoid arthritis patients found that creatine supplementation improved muscle strength despite the absence of any training program.
