How does Creatine work?

17975 ratings | 7202162 views
http://www.axislabs.net/pure-micronized-creatine-monohydrate.html Creatine is a natural compound made in the body and is derived from the diet through meat products. In the body, Creatine is changed into a molecule called phosphocreatine which serves as a storage reservoir for regenerating ATP. ATP is the chemical source of energy for muscle contraction and quick energy. Phosphocreatine is an important source of ATP energy in muscle tissue and studies have shown that Creatine can increase the performance of athletes in activities that require quick bursts of energy, such as sprinting and weight lifting. Creatine supplementation combined with strength training has been shown to cause dramatic improvements in muscle hypertrophy (size) and strength through cell volumization and increased protein synthesis. Now that you know how essential Creatine is to your workout, turn to the brand that guarantees quality and results.

ok so what if I'm a track athlete...will creatine improve my performance overall?
Jack TheLad (4 years ago)
PLEASE HELP! Would just like to know if my protein shake contains creatine in it can I take separate creatine also. The reason I'm asking is because the separate creatine I'm taking at the moment is working very well and I'm looking to buy weight gainer protein, but seems they all have creatine in them aswell. So would it be ok to be taking additional creatine. Thanks people!
Victor Kuchmaner (4 years ago)
Depends on what kind of creatine you're taking. Most likely the creatine in that weight gainer is gonna be creatine monohydrate. If the creatine you're taking now is already mono, than there is no need to be taking additional mono in from the protein. However, if your current creatine is HCL or another type of creatine, then it's ok to take a different creatine source. But just like everything else in life, keep it in moderation. To much of anything is never a good thing, so just make sure you're not over doing it on the stuff.

Actually, working out w/ weights can help you lose weight faster. Don't worry about bulking up, you have to train and eat a specific way for that to happen. If you train w/ weights and keep it in the 12-15 rep range you'll be fine. Do your weight training first (after a 5-10 min warmup on the treadmill combined w/ a little stretching), then do your cardio after your weight training. If you add 10 lbs of muscle (about the size of 2 fists) you will burn about 500 extra calories every day.
MrM4X0N3 (4 years ago)
If you want to lose weight , you have o do more cardio and less muscle building.When you loose weight start some muscle building program.More running , more sleep and less junk food.

The " GOLD STANDARD of Creatines is the Monohydrate Version!!! rhe Micromized creatine is said to be more soluble and all that crap but personally I take Creatine Monohydrate!!!
Cheryl Cladas (4 years ago)
Hmm... good video, just unsure of the side effects of consuming too much of the creatine supplement... remember... everything is bad for you if you over-do it. Moderation is key!
Kemp Kennedy (4 years ago)
Your body (and you coincidentally) simply flush the extra. That's why over 5g a day is really just making you expensive pee.
Kemp Kennedy (4 years ago)
You need to look at the official studies out there that have been done. All of them have the same conclusion... No need to cycle creatine. The people who found this out aren't 'broscientists', they are real 'scientists'.
volkan9196 (4 years ago)
How many months of training do you need before you can use creatine? I've been working out for 3 months can I start taking it?

Ur skinny fat. You need 2 just focus on lifting!
jjenson2006 (4 years ago)
Micronized only means that it is ground to a very fine powder. Creatine Monohydrate can also be micronized. By making the particles smaller, it allows it to dissolve more easily in water.

so would it be good to take with protein power?

Is creating good for some who doesn't need to loose or gain weight?
Becoming Alpha (5 years ago)
Just start weight training at the start you can easily build muscle while burning fat, its not until later that you have to worry about bulking etc. You can use creatine to boost your strength/performance a bit but don't expect miracles without the hard work
itsNimsy (5 years ago)
100 pounds -.- That's the weight of my dumbells, That isn't a healthy weight bro
Nate Tietz (5 years ago)
For one don't listen too these last 4 posts. If u don't over use it you'll be fine and it will show great results, just do your research on your workouts and the way your supposed to use it. I've used it for the past 3 years and never had a problem. But u wanna spend the money on it. Its best for a pre workout but can also be used for a post workout. Up to your preference.
R. K. M. (5 years ago)
it's not a big deal.
R. K. M. (5 years ago)
if you are working out for at least one year and not a teenager, yes you can.
R. K. M. (5 years ago)
you will lose water weight not muscle. because creatine helps muscle to hold more water so it looks big. it's clear what happens when you stop using it.
R. K. M. (5 years ago)
if normally used, it won't cause any harm to body. consult with doctor and make sure you don't have any kidney problem-sometimes symptoms are hidden and when you start using creatine, it could come out. also, if you're taking any medicines, check with your doctor. drinking plenty of water is important if you're using creatine.
R. K. M. (5 years ago)
in simple words, use it for 1 month then stop it for next 1 month. repeat this procedure. it's called cycling.
William Wright (5 years ago)
Yeah but creatine is not found in high pharmaceutical doses in food. And they wouldn't recommend you to cycle it unless there are potential side effects. They would want to sell as much of it as possible.
Robert La Trobe (5 years ago)
so long as you're training heavy and hard (HIT) you wont lose your strength gains. It will be harder since ATP isnt being replenished as quickly with phosphates ( reason why you get boost in energy) but your strength and mass should remain. Water retention helps with protein synthesis and decreases if you stop taking the supplement. The "water weight" everyone talks about isn't even noticeable unless you A: don't train hard enough B: dont train hard enough C: dont train hard enough

I take 1 tea spoon everyday to provide energy to my muscles after each workout :)! This stuff is awesome.
Oh how I love the human anatomy and workouts.
J Hansen (5 years ago)
Correct. Considering creatine is a natural substance you can get from your diet, saying you need to cycle creatine is like saying you need to cycle protein. It's complete bullshit, anyone who knows anything about Creatine would laugh at the notion of cycling.
Jörg Heinrich (5 years ago)
great product
T. Ga (5 years ago)
The part that you need to cylce creatine is pure broscience, there is zero evidence that it matters.
Akash Bhattacharjee (5 years ago)
you have to take the combo of whey and creatine together..and have to do workouts... then u can gain some mass.. but dont expect to get hulk like body very quickly :P
avarmauk (5 years ago)
Just make sure you drink lots of water. Its a great supplement.
As with many suppliments you should cycle it on and off for optimal results. With creatine though, you'd only want to cycle it off maybe for one month after 11 months. Basically a way to refresh it and gives your body confusion.
Maros Kozej (5 years ago)
just one slight thing :P it is not long term gain ... well actually you will gain mass and be able to work out harder and more efficient after you stop using creaatine you will loose some weight (mass) mainly water but some will stay due to badass workouts you were able to do during you used creatine so it is worth it if you are bodybuilder or short term if you need a performance enhancement, good vid
ArminHammer (5 years ago)
no, just like the video says your body makes it naturally, and hundreds of results of research has proven that it does nothing but good things for you, but of course, too much of anything is never good for you, so don't "overdose"
dalaranman (5 years ago)
you only loose the mass of your muscles, but this mass is mainly water that is stored because of the creatine, the size will go down, but your strength and gains from the time you used the creatine will still be there and working. therefore you should not use creatine for more than 3 months at a time with 1-2 months of break time ini between, so your muscles can restituate.
Joseph Melville (5 years ago)
yes i was taking it for 4 months and put on 8lbs then i stop for 2 months and drop 6lbs. i started back taking it this time i am going to stay on it
danny4ization (5 years ago)
I've heard a couple times by some friends that if you take creatine, and stop taking it, whatever gains you made during the creatine phase will be lost? is that true? thank you
Trekopedia.com (5 years ago)
A top end professional bodybuilder would consider themselves lucky to even put on close to 20 lbs of lean muscle mass over a 12 month period. Matter of fact that would be simply amazing, stop lying to yourself.

Take it with som fast carbs.

Are you saying that after the 26 pounds [60] days you gained 11 pounds in 30 days? or After those 26 pounds [60 days] you dropped 15 pounds in 30 days leaving you with 11 pounds of lean muscle?

I'm 5"5 and 110lbs, should i use creatine?
frosti0408 (5 years ago)
2nd part is false. creatine does not need an insulin spike to drive into the body. insulin spikes are not as simple as a postworkout "high glycemic food" because glycemic spikes result from a prolonger fast that most people do not do. ingesting fats and proteins combined with carbs slows down digestion rates and glycemic levels to where it could take the minimum of 3 hours for a food to completely digest.
frosti0408 (5 years ago)
juices would not make you fat in relation to your daily caloric intake. if your intake was 2500 calories and drinking juice made you total intake for the day 2585 then theoretically you will gain weight. No single food causes weight gain unless that certain food is eaten in large quantities to where you exceed your caloric intake. taking creatine in water will be just as effective as juice or a protein shake.
Rodrigo Alvarez S (5 years ago)
you say Creatine Monohydrate with water, my absorption wont be as good right? what if I combined it with a Powerade is that a good combination to help it absorb?
RiseOfThePickles (5 years ago)
All you need is about 4oz of sugary juice and you're set (assuming you use creatine monohydrate). If you choose to take it with just water, then your absorption wouldn't be as good as with said sugary juice. But if you got a few extra bucks to spend, then I recommend you use Creatine HCI. Creatine HCL does not require sugary juices, loading phases and cycling. Also, Creatine HCL does not turn into creatinine(breakdown product of creatine mono, which is useless). So you'll get maximum absorption
Freed0m (5 years ago)
these are to different things, the protein will build your muscles up, the creatine deliver it with more energy. more energy -> better workout -> your body gets the signal to make the muscle stronger and needs protein :) correct me if im wrong :)
Joshua Verduzco (5 years ago)
No it is not necessary to take creatine with certain juices. Just a protein shake or water will do just fine
Homero (5 years ago)
Is it necessary to take creatine with juice or dextrose? when i take it with grape juice i gain too much weight.

at least these guys are not claiming some sort of superior creatine like kre akalyn or some shit
Hampus T-W (5 years ago)
It doesn't matter. The body will not be able to use the creatine in such a short amount of time anyways.
It is related to age.Not skinny or Plumpy....
some people retain water I find that it makes me piss ten time more then normal But it still works

Awesome. :)
i8dapuszy (5 years ago)
okay well i imagine your questions have already been answered, but what you are supposed to do is a creatine load. regardless of what the bottle says, it is best to take it 4 times a day for 4 days, and then after that, in the mornings and after your workout. btw, i would switch to powdered creatine because its wayyy cheaper, and you will get better results.
vivitaraos (5 years ago)
never take creatine before ur workout allways after
omgitsmattsutube (5 years ago)
I am really keen to start using this (I have been training for around 3 years) but at the risk of sounding ignorant i have heard people say that creatine use can lead to baldness ? not sure if that is with general use or when higher consumption's are made, or if it has anything to do with the individuals genetics such as baldness in the family. Could someone with actual knowledge on this subject please reply back to me with some information about my concerns,Chur
Anthony Di Censo (5 years ago)
Lol, wrong. It's to be taken post workout, as it will fuel the workout of the next day, and so on and so on.
