Why do a lot of women tend to avoid using one of the most researched and clinically validated supplements available?
Some think of creatine as a supplement just for men who want to pack on slabs of muscle, whilst others are concerned with water retention and some even believe it to be a type of steroid.
The first point that needs to be addressed is that creatine is not a type of steroid, it has no relation to hormones or their effects and is actually produced naturally in the body, it can also be found in certain food sources (beef, lamb, pork and fish).
Second point that needs addressing is that creatine may cause water retention, but this will just be a small amount which is retained in the muscle and is nothing like the bloating experienced during ‘that time of the month’ and thirdly if creatine really did allow you to pack on serious amounts of muscle don’t you think every guy who takes it would be massive? Muscle takes a hell of a long time to build (even longer for women) and anyone who gets muscular definitely doesn’t do it by accident.
So what does creatine do?
The simple answer is that creatine replenishes Adenosine Triphosphate (the fuel in your muscle) to allow your muscles to work harder and longer.
Your muscles only contain a limited supply of Adenosine Triphosphate and once that supply has been used your muscles will fatigue very quickly, which is why supplementing with creatine is so beneficial for both men and women.
Conclusion: If you want to train harder and longer, try supplementing with creatine, which is one of the key ingredients in our Protein Fusion product.
