Why do I need to take creatine?

Creatine is a combination of three amino acids. These amino acids are arginine, glycine, and methionine. In your muscles, it combines with phosphate to help you recycle ATP (the energy currency in the muscles). It helps you recover the energy. 

Benefits of creatine:

• It can help you tolerate heavy weight training

• It can help with the recovery of the muscle

• It can help the strength of the muscle 

• It can help the size of the muscle  

There are different types of creatine. Some people can actually be allergic to creatine as well. You may want to have a small amount first, to make sure you’re not allergic to it. 

There are two versions of creatine that I think are better than others:

• Creatine ethyl ester 

• Micronized creatine
