Creatine Monohydrate occurs naturally in the body and is found in food sources such as meat and fish. Creatine has been a popular supplement with bodybuilders and athletes due to it's energy properties during intense exercise or athletic events. During intense, brief bursts of activity, the body converts adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and phosphate to be used as energy. Creatine aids in the process of converting ADP back to ATP, resulting in larger amounts of ATP for energy use which helps promote a short-term increase in endurance and strength. Additionally, Creatine can be stored by cells, allowing a "energy reservoir" for bodybuilders and athletes.
