Greater concentrations of creatine in muscle improves performance The effect of creatine supplementation has been studied in people with different levels of fitness and athletic ability, ranging from elite athletes to relatively unfit beginners.
Creatine supplementation had a performance-enhancing effect for a wide range of sports.
For sports that require speed, such as sprinting, long jump, swimming, kayaking/rowing, and for intensive strength training by bodybuilders and cyclists, creatine supplementation can greatly improve performance in the areas of maximum strength and endurance (5-15%), with interval training in the maximum range (5-20%), with power production in short sprints (approx. 30%,) and in training with repetitive sprints (5-15%).
Different mechanisms are involved in the ergogenic effects of creatine supplementation:
Higher phosphocreatine concentrations serve as immediate reserves for ATP during exertion.
Increased phosphocreatine resynthesis rate during and after exertion due to increased levels of creatine.
Smaller decrease in muscle pH during exertion.
Increase in muscle mass (absolute power output).
Phosphocreatine resynthesis is critical for restoring muscle power at the beginning of the next set of intensive exercises. An increased resynthesis rate makes it possible to more intensive training sets, which is an advantage for explosive sports disciplines in particular.
During very intensive, repetitive forms of exercise there is enough ATP or 1-2 seconds, and phosphocreatine is available for the immediate regeneration of ATP. However, phosphocreatine stores last approximately 10 seconds. Increasing Phosphocreatine levels in muscle results in the delayed breakdown of phosphocreatine, which has a beneficial effect on muscle performance. More than 20 clinical trials have shown that creatine supplementation significantly improves muscle strength and/or performance during short bouts of high-intensity exercise.
The greatest improvements in performance can be found during series of repetitive high-intensity types of exertion that are interrupted by a fairly brief period of rest (e.g., 20-60 seconds). The rest breaks are sufficient to achieve greater recovery of phosphocreatine concentrations.
Creatine supplementation is common in these sports: bodybuilding, weightlifting, wrestling, rowing, cycling, mountain biking, tennis, skiing, American football, soccer, rugby, basketball, ice hockey, volleyball, handball, and track and field (sprinting, shot put, javelin and discus).
Insulin-mediated stimulation improves the storage of creatineCreatine storage can be improved by taking creatine together with simple carbohydrates, such as dextrose, instead of just taking it in its pure form. Ingesting carbohydrates raises blood sugar levels and therefore the secretion of insulin, an endogenous hormone.The improved uptake of creatine into the muscles is attributed to stimulation of creatine transporters mediated by insulin.Taking 4 x 5g creatine for 6 days resulted in an increase of the total creatine of 17%. In contrast, it has been shown that total creatine can be increased 27% by taking 4 x 5g creatine plus 90g dextrose for 6 days (right).CHP LABS has developed a complete creatine transport system in ATP PLUS which utilizes Promilin? (fenugreek extract, 4-hydroxyisoleucine). Promilin? functions to potentiate the action of insulin resulting in complete uptake of creatine and carbohydrates into the muscles without raising blood sugar.Exercise also stimulates the uptake of creatine. The administration of 5g creatine monohydrate 4 times a day for 3-5 days with subsequent training on an ergometer with only one leg resulted in an increase of total creatine in muscle of 37% in the leg that did the exercise compared to an increase of only 25% in the other leg, which served as the control.The increase in creatine uptake can probably mostly be attributed to the increase perfusion of the muscle or to greater movement of the creatine transporters to the muscle cell membrane.Taking carbohydrates at the same time does not increase creatine storage rates when the training sets are done before supplementation.
Orally administered creatine is absorbed by the intestines and then goes into the bloodstream. Small doses of creatine result in maximum blood plasma concentrations after fewer than two hours.For concentrations of creatine in muscles there appears to be an upper limit that can not be extended (~160 mmol per kg muscle dry matter). Ongoing supplementation with large amounts of creatine oes not raise the levels of creatine in muscle any more, so is not recommended.
A daily dosage of 3 g is recommended. Creatine should always be taken with caffeine-free drinks, such as water, fruit juice, or warm (improves solubility) tea. Make sure that you take sufficient fluid with the creatine (rule of thumb: 1 g creatine/100 ml fluid).The creatine drink should always be prepared fresh and consumed that same day, as creatine does not remain stable in fluids for long periods.
Creatine and Caffeine
Taking large doses of caffeine (5 mg per kg body weight per day) cancels the ergogenic (performance enhancing) effect of creatine. Smaller amounts of caffeine (for example, 1?2 cups of coffee), on the other hand, do not seem to have an adverse impact on the effects of creatine.
