The natural sources of creatine are foods of animal origin, but only in their raw form. It is popular among sportsmen to complement their diet with creatine as it may improve performance and promote muscle growth. It might have many other positive features that are beneficial to consumers in a broader sense (mental capabilities, reaction time, cardiovascular system, insulin sensitivity).
Recently it has also been discovered that it may decrease the level of a substance called lipofuscin in the body, which is associated with ageing and with the accumulation of age spots appearing on the skin.
Many people still regard creatine as some kind of steroid as it is used mainly by bodybuilders for its effects that may improve muscle force, endurance and sports performance. According to general belief, creatine might be a harmful substance. However, the truth is completely different! Creatine is an essential part of our body, primarily found in our muscles, brain and kidneys. Its major nutritional sources are meat, fish, eggs and dairy products, but it is sensitive to heat, thus we can only provide an appropriate intake if these products are consumed raw. Consequently, our dietary intake of creatine is generally insufficient. Vegetarians are the ones who might be particularly at risk. (In a clinical study, the IQ score of vegetarians increased within a short time with creatine supplementation! This is not surprising if we consider that our brain contains significant amounts of creatine and vegetarians lack proper intake.)
Beside vegetarians, creatine is particularly recommended for the elderly, athletes, and people often struggling with the lack of sleep. Not only it may have positive effects on sports performance and muscles, but it also may improve cognitive abilities and glucose tolerance, counterbalances several signs of ageing other than muscle loss, and, moreover, it seems might have rejuvenating effects as well. The research study on creatine was performed using primarily creatine monohydrate, but other forms are also likely to be effective. We play it safe, thus our product contains creatine monohydrate.
