Creatine monohydrate is the ideal creatine supplement as it contains the most creatine per mass. It is a chemical made in the body and is usually found in the liver, it can also be found in foods such as fish and meat. Creatine monohydrate is transferred to the muscles where it is converted to phosphocreatine, which replenishes the energy source of muscle cells by converting ADP (adenosine diphosphate) to ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is the immediate source of energy for muscle contractions
Supports athletic performance- When creatine monohydrate is converted to ATP (adenosine triphosphate) it provides the muscles with fast converting energy that allows the muscles to lift heavier weight and for more reps

What is Creatine Monohydrate used for?
Creatine is primarily used to enhance athletic performance for those that are young and healthy and needing additional energy during highly intensive muscle activities. Numerous variables may affect the overall results that creatine has, such as the age, activities performed, dosing amounts, and overall fitness level of the user.
The scientific evidence that verifies the effects of creatine for short periods of high intensity exercise is abundant. However, the effects of creatine supplementation for endurance exercise have not been noticed to the same extent.
Creatine use is accepted by the rules set in the NCAA, the International Olympic Committee, and practically every professional sports association and league. The only real prohibition is in the NCAA, where school funds for colleges and universities cannot be applied towards the purchase of creatine supplements for students. NCAA does not intend of banning creatine use, but it may be possible if new evidence of its’ harmful risks is found and confirmed. Based on the current standards for drug testing in professional sports leagues, it would be impossible to determine the difference in creatine levels from those that use supplements and those that do not.
How does Creatine Monohydrate work?
Creatine is an organic amino acid that is naturally produced in the human body and is found in excessive quantities within skeletal tissues. Seafood and meat are both rich sources of creatine. If you do not eat meat or fish, then you can increase creatine synthesis within the body through other amino acids, which includes glycine, methionine, and arginine.
Basically, the purpose of creatine is to assist with providing energy to cells within muscles in the human body. The belief is that creatine operates as a sort of phosphate storage for the purpose of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) regeneration. As a reminder, ATP is the primary source of energy for muscles that the body immediately relies on when performing any type of overly intensive activities involving the muscles. During muscular contraction, phosphate is decreased within the ATP as energy is produced. By supplementing with creatine, you are able to replenish the energy through replacing the phosphate that is no longer available, which ultimately leads to a higher production of ATP.
It is believed that the increase in creatine availability will result in a larger storage of fuel that can be resourced when performing any intensive exercise. This may be for a professional sprinting event or it could even just be to maximize your performance and possibly add a repetition onto one of your sets when lifting weights. There are also volume increasing benefits involved with creatine supplementation, in which additional nutrient and water intake to the cells of muscles occurs. This is the reason for a slight weight gain or bloated look occurring when first starting creatine supplementation, and especially during the creatine loading phase.
