Useful Tip For Never Forgetting Your Creatine Again!


Sometimes the best tips are those that are most obvious. It has to be said that this is kinda obvious, but it’s amazing how many people overlook this and consequently forget to take their creatine supplement on a daily basis.

If you didn’t already know, creatine is most effective when the muscle is saturated with the stuff. In order to achieve muscle creatine saturation you have to ensure you have a steady, consistent flow of creatine into the body. Failing to maintain your creatine intake could mean that your levels drop below that needed to cause a meaningful ergogenic effect i.e. enhance performance. Therefore my tip for reducing the risk of missing your daily creatine intake is simple… put the creatine powder into your shaker with your whey protein powder and take it to the gym with you. Then you have both supplements in one place, plus you can get them down you in one hit of nutritional goodness!

Fear not, you do not need to ensure that you get your creatine in before the gym, creatine is stored in the muscle and used when the body needs it, so taking creatine with your morning protein shake or immediately after exercise is fine either way.
