Creatine has been around for the athlete and bodybuilder since the early 1990's
In the body, creatine is synthesized from the amino acids glycine, arginine and methionine. Taking supplemental doses of creatine monohydrate can increase muscle creatine and phosphocreatine (PC) concentrations by up to 40%. These increases can lead to improvements in muscle energy production and recuperation. Muscle PC is used as a high-energy substrate (fuel) required for immediate bursts of energy during high intensity and anaerobic exercise. Body builders and athletes often notice remarkable increases in muscle cell size and strength, with decreases in the onset of fatigue and faster recovery.

How to take Creatine Monohydrate
In order to get the optimal benefit of creatine, it is suggested that you first “load up”. The loading phase requires that you “stuff” creatine into your muscles - Which means you want to saturate your muscles with creatine. Taking one teaspoon of creatine 4 to 5 times daily for five days should do the trick.
Week 1: Loading phase: one teaspoon of creatine 4 to 5 times daily
Afterwards, one five to ten gram dose per day should keep the gains coming and maintaining the optimal amount of creatine in the muscles. However, you don’t have to go overboard on the maintenance phase. The body has a cap on the amount of creatine that it will store in the muscle. Keep it to about 5 to 10 grams a day and you should be fine.
Week 2: Maintenance phase: 5 to 10 grams (1 to 2 teaspoons)
