Understanding how creatine enters and interacts with your body is important when taking supplements that include this ingredient. Although Creatine Monohydrate is one of the most widely studied and backed dietary supplement ingredient on the market. Countless studies support the benefits of this supplementation and its effectiveness in muscle function for athletes, strength and endurance trainers. According to a study made by "Medline Plus" Creatine Monohydrate "There is a lot of mixed research on creatine's ability to improve muscle strength. However, analyses of this research show that creatine seems to modestly improve upper body strength and lower body strength in both younger and older adults."
It has been shown that when taken daily that Creatine Monohydrate aids in the production of Muscle Glycogen (ATP) to help aid in your muscles energy production to boost endurance in turn supporting more muscle growth. There are also studies to show that Creatine Monohydrate can aid in your cognitive awareness and regulate memory, alertness and mood swings.
Studies support this ingredient to be a necessary component in majority of supplements. That is why Alpha Theory K9 Pre-workout includes this in the formulation.
