The Benefits of Creatine Monohydrate

We have a favorite post-workout shake right now that we whip up ourselves:

  • 1 cup of milk of your choice (whole, almond, …)
  • 1 tablespoon of Beekeeper’s Naturals Superfood Honey
  • 1 scoop of John’s Killer Protein
  • 1 tsp of Creatine Monohydrate
  • Sprinkle of Cinnamon

A short list of some of the benefits of Creatine Monohydrate:

  • Creatine is an amino acid that is found naturally in muscle cells.
  • Creatine is a popular and effective supplement for sports performance and adding muscle mass
  • Creatine supplements increase your phosphocreatine stores, allowing you to produce more ATP energy to fuel your muscles during high-intensity exercise
  • Creatine monohydrate is one of the most extensively studied form of creatine
  • Vegetarians/vegans are likely to have significantly lower levels of creatine, so they will likely have a better than average response to creatine supplementation
  • Creatine supplementation can improve some properties of aging bone
  • For people over 50, creatine can have fat burning properties in addition to muscle and strength building
