Creatine is muscle fuel... Creatine can significantly increase lean muscle mass in just a few weeks of usage. It is also helps support performance in high-intensity exercise, increasing energy levels, and supporting recovery rates. Aging athletes can use creatine to combat soreness. Creatine has the awesome effect of super-hydrating muscle cells with water. This effect leads to greater energy production and recovery of muscles. More energy = More muscle.
I encourage my athletes to use 2-3 capsules after strenous workouts with at least 8 ounces of water or electrolyte drink.
