NEW YORK, NY – (IBWire.com November 21, 2011) - More and more young men are using Creatine to supplement their weight lifting in order to build muscles according to industry experts.
Creatine is a natural chemical produced in the body by amino acids and stored mainly in the skeletal muscles with little amounts found in the brain and heart. Creatine is found also in proteins such as red meats and fish, and is also becoming popular among athletes and bodybuilders by consuming creatine supplements in either capsule or powder form for quick digestion.
Most athletes and bodybuilders prefer the chemical to anabolic steroids because of its ability to build muscle mass and enhance performance during intense, brief sports activities and workouts such as sprints and weightlifting. Studies are also showing that athletes performing endurance activities such as running and aerobics can advance from creatine as well although these studies are yet to have any conclusive evidence. Athletes taking creatine supplementation is a controversial subject even though it doesn't seem to have similar side effects of illegal performance enhancing drugs, it still is known as a performance enhancer and many feel it should be restricted from use in professional sports.Creatine has been noted to decrease muscle fatigue, and has also been noted to strengthen the muscles and is used by some patients who have experienced muscle weakness due to injury, surgery, or certain conditions such as Parkinson's, arthritis, muscular dystrophy, Huntington's disease, congestive heart failure, myasthenia gravis, Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), and McArdle's disease. Please consult your local doctor before consuming any new supplementation, medication, exercise, or change of diet.
