Learn how creatine supplementation affects performance with this authoritative source drawn from the latest research findings. Creatine: The Power Supplement is the first book to provide scientific analysis of creatine supplementation on exercise performance and athlete health and safety.
The subject of numerous studies during the 1990s, creatine is a naturally occurring substance necessary for synthesizing phosphocreatine that is used by the muscles during high-intensity exercise. Supplementation programs significantly increase the body's supply of creatine and phosphocreatine, resulting in the muscles' capacity to quickly re-energize after exertion.
Creatine: The Power Supplement presents a detailed analysis of:
- Scientific literature discussing the effects of creatine supplementation on various forms of exercise, sport performance, and on body mass
- Creatine requirements and metabolic functions
- Supplementation protocols and the effects on muscle creatine stores
- Possible adverse effects of creatine supplementation
- Legal and ethical considerations regarding creatine use by competitive athletes
- The historical evolution of creatine use
Creatine: The Power Supplement is the most comprehensive book available on one of the most popular supplements in sports.
