why use creatine

Many of our readers have already discovered the power of creatine supplementation.  It’s likely that if you’re looking to enhance your peak production in the gym or on the track, you’ve at least considered creatine as a supplementation before.  When stacking creatine with other supplements, you’re able to make powerhouse combinations to take your performance and physique you’ve never seen before.

We’ve traveled a long and weary road together when it comes to the importance of creatine supplementation.  We’ve given you the information you need to make a decision on what the best creatine for you is, how much creatine you need, even where to purchase your creatine!  Despite writing an in-depth guide to supplementation leading to bigger and stronger muscles, we’ve never really taken the time to tell you WHY you should take creatine.  Sometimes we can overlook the important stuff that we feel is obvious to get to the other stuff that we think most people don’t know about.  That’s our bad and we’re going to remedy that today by telling you why you need to take creatine!

Muscle Gains

The main reason that you need to add creatine in to your supplementation is to have larger and fuller muscles.  Creatine will bring more water into your muscle tissue, making them fuller and more dense.  You will almost immediately gain a few pounds of muscle mass, but most of that is water weight.  After the first few pounds of quick gains, you’ll start to gradually gain true muscle mass.  This weight gain is from the increased workload that your muscles are able to handle do to the creatine  supplementation.  When combined with protein to have more energy for the powerful reps and better recovery time, you can see why the stack is one of the most desirable combinations among body builders around the world.

No Calories, Good Additives

You can be sure that the weight gains that you see after creatine supplementation aren’t fat.  Creatine has no calories and doesn’t really effect your metabolism.  Any weight you’re gaining due to creatine supplementation isn’t going to be visceral fat.  The gains are going to be one hundred percent certifiable, all-natural muscle mass.

Occasionally, some companies might choose to add some preferable additives to their creatine.  You can shop around for the best ones for you, but some powders might come with different vitamins that tend to work well toward the muscle gain goals.  Some creatine powders might be rich in electrolytes to help you power through intense workouts.  Again, some creatine powders might just be 100% pure.  Pick the best solution for you and your situation, then roll with it!

Affordable

It’s no secret that some of the supplements we talk about in this blog are kind of pricey.  Thankfully, creatine isn’t one of those.  Both creatine and protein are relatively inexpensive and can wildly improve your performance and results.  Buying in bulk will save you even more money, as well as keep you motivated to utilize your whole investment so try to buy the largest tubs of supplements that you can safely afford!
