Bioenergetics of Creatine:

The amino acid Creatine has been a staple in the bodybuilding community for a long time. Its benefits on improving athletic performance and building lean muscle mass are well established and observed by many in real time.

The goal behind LifeBlud's Create product and education is to expand the reputation of Creatine beyond the gym. The reality is that creatine is a very intrinsic part of the energetic process of every cell

Similar to Taurine, the areas in the body with the most abundant creatine pools are in the most energetically demanding tissues such as the muscle, heart, and brain. Creatine is actually the second most abundant low-molecular weight compound in the body, next to water. 

Creatine is used very essentially in the production of ATP within the cell, which is one of the end products of energy creation. Almost like a battery, stored creatine (phosphocreatine) transfers a phosphate to ADP (adenosine diphosphate) which becomes ATP (adenosine triphosphate), creating an on-demand rapid energy recycling effect. ADP/ATP are not stored and, therefore, would not be able to do this without creatine. 

Another very important aspect of creatine's action, is that it is itself a methyl donor. A large majority of methyl groups in the body are used to synthesize creatine and phosphatidylcholine. Taking supplemental creatine can cut your methylation needs down significantly, so you have more methyl group to methylate other things, especially as

Creatine in Action:

A growing body of evidence has shown that creatine has benefits that go far beyond improving muscle mass and athleticism. When we view the body from a bioenergetic perspective, where energy production and metabolism are at the center, we can understand why creatine has so many benefits.

Fascinating studies have shown creatine to improve some of life's most crucial areas: brain health, mood and cognition, fertility and reproductive health from both female and male sides, and added resilience against stressors including sleep deprivation. 

Even though the brain is about 2% of our body weight on average, it uses up about 20% of our total energy metabolism. Knowing this, we can see why creatine, as a metabolic enhancer, has shown great effects in study's on improving brain health, cognitive performance, and anti-depressive action as well as dopamine activation. Researchers are beginning to entertain the idea that creatine is like a low-level neurotransmitter, due to its presence and action in the brain and central nervous system.
