It goes without saying that creatine supplementation is an absolute must for those seeking increases in strength and muscularity. There is an abundance of well-documented scientific data to back up creatine's direct muscle-building potential and impact on strength and power when taken before a workout. Creatine increases phosphocreatine in muscle that's utilized to make more ATP (energy), enabling more intense training sessions. Creatine increases skeletal muscle hypertrophy and protein synthesis by creating an osmotic gradient in muscle, whereby water is shunted into muscle cells to make them swell (which is a signal for anabolism). As well, recent scientific evidence has shown that creatine ingestion inhibits catabolic myostatin levels after training and elevates insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), thus providing two other potent modes for muscle growth. For best results, look for products that contain at least 5 g of CreaPure brand creatine monohydrate per serving, as found in ProSource's gold standard Creatine Monohydrate product.
