Creatine is a natural substance produced by the body. It plays a central role in storing and transporting energy in all cells. Its energy capabilities make it highly effective in sports nutrition, where it has been used for many years. Its positive effect on sports performance has been well documented in hundreds of scientific publications. Athletes taking creatine can achieve higher outputs and improve the quality of their workouts. It enables athletes to train with higher intensity and for longer, with shorter recovery times.
It is well known that regular physical activity can help to ensure healthy ageing. However, as muscle mass and strength decrease with age, resistance training should play a superior role in individuals' workouts. Maintaining muscle mass and strength can increase well-being and vitality in those of advanced years. The changes that occur as muscles age can also be attributed to a decreased concentration of creatine in the muscles, so this supplement supports regular training perfectly.
The benefit of using a creatine supplement during advanced years was recently acknowledged by a secondary European health claim: daily creatine consumption can enhance the effect of resistance training on muscle strength in adults over 55. This is achieved when combining regular resistance training with an intake of 3g of creatine a day.
