Creatine is a nitrogenous acid that recycles Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) by converting Adenosine Diphosphate back into ATP when a bond has been broken to provide energy for cells. This energy could be used for muscular contraction, so creatine can help you train harder and for longer. Creatine also causes water to be drawn into muscle cells to promote a positive nitrogen balance (net storage of nitrogenous compounds - e.g. proteins.) A positive nitrogen balance is required for growth. In addition, creatine is a myostatin inhibitor. Myostatin is a protein released by muscle cells when muscles contract and cell fibres break. The protein then binds to the receptors on the same muscle cell and inhibits muscle growth. Taking a creatine supplement therefore increases muscle growth.
