It may be safe to say that Creatine is the most studied product in the bodybuilding world. This series of articles will help explain everything you need to know about creatine. Let’s go!

Creatine is not an amino acid, however. Creatine in the human body comes from the amino acids alanine, glycine, and methionine.

We found an article called: Can Creatine Really Improve Exercise Performance from BodyBuilding.com. This article explains how creatine benefits performance, among other things, pretty damn well.

Creatine is found in skeletal muscle in the form of creatine phosphate, and its main mode of action is to provide an inorganic phosphate to resynthesize ATP during high intensity activities, typically lasting 10 seconds or less (i.e. sprinting, high intensity weight lifting). However, as more research has been done, it appears that creatine may have benefits for other types of exercise as well. For completeness, I’d mention that creatine has even shown benefit in the treatment of certain disease states, but that topic is beyond the scope of this article.

Supplements are great, but don’t make the mistake of thinking they will replace real, nutritious foods!

There are tons of supplements on the market; some great, some complete shit. It can get kind of tedious deciding which supplements to take and which ones are a waste of money, so I am going to run down briefly some of the best supplements men should be taking. There will surely be differing schools of thought on this, but this list will incorporate what I think are the best supplements athlete men should be consuming:

  • Multivitamin – Vitamins and minerals you don’t always get from food.
  • Ginseng – Good for your heart and good for your manhood.
  • Fish Oil – Essential fatty acids. Good for your heart, good for your brain, good for cholesterol.
  • Glucosamine / Chondroitin / MSM – Good for joints and connective issue.
  • Creatine – Replenishment of ATP, delays muscle fatigue, increases pump.
  • Protein Supplements – Muscle recovery, reduced soreness. The essential building blocks for lean tissue.
  • BCAAs – Essential amino acids, improve muscle growth, improve recovery and healing.
  • Antioxidants – Keeps you healthy and may induce fat loss.
  • Test Boosters (natural) – Increases natural test levels, keeps body fat low, great state of mind.
  • Ginkgo Biloba – Cognitive function, blood flow and vascularity.
  • Horny Goat Weed – Too awesome and too much to write a short description – Click the link!

Keep in mind: Supplements are just that – supplemental. Nothing will replace a good nutritious diet and a hard workout program. In a perfect world, supplements are technically not necessary. But a perfect world is hard to attain for most of us, which is why the supplement industry is so successful. I say, get some of these supplements and incorporate them into a healthy diet and workout program, and you will reap the benefits!
