We often get asked what supplements people should take to help with their sports/gym performance. While you don't need to take supplements, and you certainly shouldn't prioritise them above sleep, good nutrition and adequate training, there are a few supplements that are worth considering.
Creatine is a supplement that plays a role in our anaerobic energy production. It helps to cycle ATP back into usable ATP so that we can keep going for a little bit longer or push out a few more reps in the gym.
Having increased creatine levels does the following:
Improves high-intensity exercise performance
Increases power and strength output
Enhances your recovery
Increases lean muscle mass
Supports cognitive function
How to Take Creatine?
Dose 3-5g creatine monohydrate per day
Consuming post-workout is most effective
Pair creatine with a carb source to increase the uptake by your muscles
