Creatine has been a popular substance in strength and endurance sports for many years, as creatine increases physical performance during high-speed training during short-term intensive physical activity and has many positive effects on the human body.
What is creatine?
Creatine is a substance that contributes to the energy supply of the muscles in the human body and is synthesized from the amino acids glycine, arginine and methionine. About half of the required creatine can be produced by the organism itself, the kidneys, liver and pancreas. The rest can be supplied through food.
What functions does creatine fulfil?
Creatine can the daily intake of creatine can increase the effect of strength training on the muscle strength of adults over 55 years of age and increase the physical performance of rapid strength training during short-term intensive physical activity. It promotes the regeneration of used muscles after training. Taking creatine leads to water retention in the muscle tissue, giving the body a more voluminous appearance.
How can I absorb creatine through food?
Creatine is mainly found in meat and fish, cow's milk contains moderate amounts of creatine, while fruit and vegetables contain little creatine.
Creatine is found especially in red beef and fish. One kilogram of beef contains about 5g of creatine, one kilogram of herring 6-10g. However, since creatine is sensitive to heat, a large proportion is lost during the cooking process. In many cases it is therefore worthwhile to take a creatine supplement.
