Creatine is perhaps the most well-studied ergogenic supplement available, with decades or research and hundreds of scientific studies in favour of its use. Creatine is a tripeptide composed of three amino acids joined by peptide bonds, which are methionine, arginine and glycine. Creatine is generally used to increase strength and power, reduce recovery time between sets and support lean muscle mass increases. These effects are likely more pronounced in vegans and vegetarians.
Recent research indicates that the most beneficial time to supplement with creatine is after exercise. This may be due to the fact that muscle creatine levels are depleted during activity, making them able to uptake more from serum. In addition, exercise-induced GLUT-4 translocation to the muscle cell membrane would also assist this process.
Creatine is a relatively tasteless powder, making it suitable to add to a range of products, such as protein shakes and flavoured amino acids, like pre-workouts. This makes supplementation simple and easy to stick to a daily dosage of around 5 grams, or perhaps a little more for those adhering to a vegan and vegetarian diet (6 grams). This dosage is based on the fact that dietary intake is typically around 1 gram daily for omnivores.
Many choose to creatine load when they have not used the supplement for a long time or for the first time. This is not essential, however it will increase muscle store more rapidly. One study indicated that 20 grams taken daily for 6 days, followed by a maintenance dosage worked well. Each dosage during the 20 gram "loading phase" would ideally be taken with a carbohydrate source, such as a piece of fruit to promote insulin release and muscular creatine uptake.
How to Use Musashi Creatine
Mix 5 grams into water, protein shake or other beverage and consume once daily, preferably after exercise.
