Creatine Chews For Muscle Gain
What if I told you there’s a supplement that has been studied hundreds of times? One that has been proven effective for building muscle, improving performance, speeding muscle growth, and even helping your brain? Sounds too good to be true, I know. But yet, it does exist!
Creatine for female muscle gain
Muscle gain has a slew of benefits for women including improved bone and cardiac health, increased strength and injury prevention, and let’s not forget, improving body composition. Over the years I’ve seen more and more women pursuing muscle gain for some or all of these reasons. Which I think is great, because muscle is awesome.
Whether you’re new to this muscle-gaining pursuit or you’ve been at it for years, there’s one supplement we can all benefit from, no matter where you are in your journey. Introducing Creatine! This supplement has been proven effective for building muscle and increasing strength by:
- Helping muscle cells produce more energy
- Boosting the formation of proteins that create new muscle fibers
- Improving High-Intensity exercise performance
- Speeding muscle growth
You might be thinking “Sounds good, but what’s the catch?”. The honest answer is there is no catch. Creatine is the safest and most researched supplement on the market. Creatine was first discovered in 1832 and has since been studied hundreds of times. In fact, your own body actually produces it and you probably already consume it in your diet without knowing it (E.g chicken, beef, and fish). If I haven’t convinced you of creatine's effectiveness and safety the good news is, that there are hundreds of studies available to do your own research!
Creatine for the brain
We all have busy demanding lives, we have jobs, families, and all kinds of responsibilities! With such hectic schedules, it can leave our brains swirling. By now we know that creatine is a safe and effective supplement when chasing our muscle-building goals. But as we further understand our brain function and cognitive performance, research is also looking at creatine as a possible way to support our brains. Yes, the same brain that forgot to pick up the groceries or forgot an important work deadline, oops. I won’t bore you with the scientific research but studies show that supplemental creatine monohydrate over 2-4 weeks increases the concentration of creatine in the brain by 5-15%.
So why does this matter?
Adequate creatine stores in the brain allow for optimal energy production to support brain health and cognitive performance. Creatine can also reduce symptoms of fatigue and tiredness by providing our brains with additional energy and increasing dopamine levels. Maybe creatine can’t pick up the groceries for you or remind you of that upcoming deadline, but it may help you remember them!
Creatine, no more getting powder everywhere!
I sit in my car getting ready to head to the gym. Thankfully I remembered to throw a container of creatine powder in my gym bag. I tear open the new bottle and *poof* I’m in a cloud of creatine. It’s fine, nothing I can’t dust off. But now I’m digging around the container for the scoop that has settled to the bottom. As I’m wiping powder off of myself, an idea hits me, wouldn’t it be cool if creatine came in these little convenient chews that tasted like a sweet tart? Oh, wait!! They do! No more powder everywhere, no more digging for the scoop! With our New ANIMAL Creatine Chews, we deliver all the great benefits of creatine in a convenient chewable tablet.
