Why Is Creatine the Number One Supplement for Improving Performance?
If protein is the king supplement of gains, creatine is the queen and is uncontestedly just as important. Stacking the two together is one of the most researched methods with high rates of continued success.
It’s overall health benefits of creatine reach far past the world of muscle growth, but has been proven to be the most effective supplement in improving overall performance in high resistance training. This includes its high propensity for assisting speedy recovery even of potentially drastic injuries.
Robert Cooper, Fernando Naclerio, Judith Allgrove and Alfonso Jimenez wrote in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition:
“Creatine is used and researched in a clinical setting to investigate various pathologies or disorders such as myopathies and is also used as an ergogenic aid for improving health and sports performance in athletes. As an oral supplement, the most widely used and researched form is creatine monohydrate (CM). When orally ingested, CM has shown to improve exercise performance and increase fat free mass.”
