Creatine is naturally produced in the body from amino acids L-arginine, glycine and L-methionine; it is then converted into Creatine phosphate. When converted, it aids in the process of making a substance called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This substance provides energy for muscle contractions. Creatine is also found in protein-rich foods, more specifically, meat or fish. Half of the body’s stored Creatine originates from this, approximately one gram per day. In the case of Creatine supplementation, the number of myonuclei that satellite cells will “donate” to damaged muscle fibers (from training) will increase, thus increasing the growth of said fibers.
When taken in larger doses, Creatine can cause weight gain, anxiety, breathing difficulty, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, headache, kidney problems, nausea, vomiting, rash, stomach upset. There have been some reports of muscle cramping from using Creatine. Acetaminophen, diabetes medications and diuretics can have dangerous interactions with Creatine. Caffeine and ephedra can increase unpleasant side effects. It is recommended that if you have kidney or liver problems or diabetes you should refrain from taking Creatine. It may affect blood sugar levels and should not be taken with medications used for blood sugar. It is important to stay hydrated while using this supplement.
