Creatine June QA with Pharmacist Christine Cheng

Creatine ®

Q: I’ve always thought creatine was beneficial for those who wanted to bulk up like bodybuilders.  Are there other benefits to supplementing with creatine?

A: Creatine can boost ATP, strengthen muscle, improve muscle tone, and buffer lactic acid build up; these are the reasons why athletes and bodybuilders alike have historically bene ted from this supplement. However, it can also prevent age-related muscle loss, promote fat-free mass (i.e., lean muscle), and even improve cognitive function. Creatine has also been shown to have neuroprotective effects, which makes a supplement like Zipfuel from Prairie Naturals ® benefial for people of all ages.
