    crimagesWhen it comes to the best muscle building or natural bodybuilding supplements, creatine is basically the gold standard. Creatine is supplemented in the diets of many bodybuilders for numerous reasons such as speeding up recovery rates, improving performance and increasing energy.

    What is Creatine?

    Creatine is a naturally occurring compound produced by our bodies, used to supply energy to our muscles. It is produced in the liver, kidneys and pancreas, then transported to the muscles through the bloodstream. Once creatine reaches the muscles it is converted into creatine phosphate which is used to regenerate the supply of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) . Simply put, creatine increases the amount of energy that is available to our muscles, potentially allowing us to work harder and/or longer. By increasing the intensity, effort and volume of our workouts, over time we can generate more muscle mass.
