How does creatine work?

For creatine to work and for creatine to be effective it must be saturated within your muscle cells so the only way to saturate your muscle cells is to take creatine for at least one month, taking creatine for one month will fully saturate your muscle cells or you could saturate your muscle cells within 7 to 10 days if you take 20 grams of creatine per day which is common, and a lot of people do it’s called a loading phase that just basically saturates the muscles quicker and then after that they go to a maintenance dose which is 5 grams of creatine per day now the key thing for creatine is you have to be consistent so if you are supplementing with creatine and if you want that strength, you want that explosive power, you want that muscle growth and you want that help with your fatigue then you must take it every day so your muscles are saturated with creatine.

WHEN WE SHOULD TAKE CREATINE?

   So you take 5 grams creatine at a specific time each day?

You know what you don’t need to, I take it every morning just to get easy and convenient for myself but do you have to take it every morning or do you have to take it pre-workout or post-workout or the same time every day, no you don’t.

A lot of people think that  creatine is a pre-workout because creatine helps with strength, power, and fatigue so many people take it as pre-workout and think they will get strength and power in workout that’s not how it works, obviously caffeine is different if you take caffeine you will get strength and power right after taking caffeine.

You can take it any time of the day with reversing the morning, pre-workout, post-workout or before you go to sleep it doesn’t matter, the only thing that matters is taking it daily and then consistent with it.
