Creatine is one of the most popular and widely researched natural supplements. The majority of studies havefocused on the effects of creatine monohydrate on performance and health; however, many other forms ofcreatine exist and are commercially available in the sports nutrition/supplement market. Regardless of the form,supplementation with creatine has regularly shown to increase strength, fat free mass, and muscle morphologywith concurrent heavy resistance training more than resistance training alone. Creatine may be of benefit in othermodes of exercise such as high-intensity sprints or endurance training. However, it appears that the effects ofcreatine diminish as the length of time spent exercising increases. Even though not all individuals respond similarlyto creatine supplementation, it is generally accepted that its supplementation increases creatine storage andpromotes a faster regeneration of adenosine triphosphate between high intensity exercises. These improvedoutcomes will increase performance and promote greater training adaptations. More recent research suggests thatcreatine supplementation in amounts of 0.1 g/kg of body weight combined with resistance training improvestraining adaptations at a cellular and sub-cellular level. Finally, although presently ingesting creatine as an oralsupplement is considered safe and ethical, the perception of safety cannot be guaranteed, especially whenadministered for long period of time to different populati
ons (athletes, sedentary, patient, active, young or elderly).
