Creatine monohydrate is a commonly used supplement amongst athletes in the hopes to improve upon their athletic performance. The theory behind supplementing creatine monohydrate is to add to the body’s own creatine stores so that more is available to be used during high intensity exercise. Creatine is stored as creatine phosphate in skeletal muscles and is used during the initial onset of exercise for about 30 seconds while other fuel systems are increasing their contribution to energy production. Some studies have shown the creatine supplementation can be beneficial to anaerobic performance while other studies have shown no differences between supplement groups and control groups.
