Document Abstract:
Creatine monohydrate is a nitrogen containing compound abundant in meat and fish but also synthesized by liver, kidney and pancreas. It is mostly stored in skeletal muscle as phosphocreatine and is involved in production of energy for high intensity activity. This article discusses the scientific rational for creatine supplementation to increase body stores in order to prevent muscle fatigue and enhance exercise performance.
