Bodybuilding Supplements and Creatine Fact Guide

By: Alien

Bodybuilding supplements are the substances that help in the growth of the muscle and especially used by athletes and weight trainers. Creatine is also used as body building supplements. Creatine is the organic acid which occurs naturally in the body and supplies energy to the muscles. In case of short burst of energy like lifting weights creatine is very effective in providing energy. Researches have proved that creatine helps in proper functioning of brain and reduces mental tiredness. Creatine helps in drawing water into the muscle cells and thus makes them larger, which is also called cell volumization. It is thought that creatine causes bloating or water retention inside the cell. Thus creatine is the key factor in intracellular water retention.

The natural sources for creatine are kidney meat, red meat, offal etc. Creatine are commercially sold in various forms like creatine ethyl ester, creatine monohydrate, creatine malate etc. each forms varies from other in prices as well as in required doses. Over use of creatine can have stressful effects on kidneys and can have really harmful consequences.

Various types of Creatine Facts

Fact 1 is the most popular body building supplement to maintain fitness and for building the body muscles. This supplement enhances anaerobic performances.

Fact 2 is the monohydrate form of creatine, which acts as a precursor to phosphocreatine. This is an organic compound present in muscle tissue. The creatine monohydrate aids in storing energy and providing the energy whenever muscular contraction is needed. This supplement enhances phosphocreatine levels in muscles, which helps the muscle to work more as they act as energy reservoir.

Fact 3 is also creatine monohydrate , which acts as a energy reservoir of the muscle cells. This is an odorless white-colored crystalline powder, which appears colorless and clear in solution.

Fact 4 supplies energy to the skeletal muscles. Approximately ninety five percent energy of body is supplied from skeletal muscles. The remaining five percent of body energy is scattered to the muscles of other part. The greater part of this energy is concentrated in the brain, heart and testes. A skeletal muscle can not produce creatine but can utilize the creatine generated in kidneys and liver.

Whenever dietary consumption of creatine is less in that of your body, a limited supply of creatine is possible by the intake of body building supplements.
