    Creatine is a molecule produced in the body and is a dietary precursor of Phosphocreatine which releases energy. Creatine can help to support energy production, enhance muscle strength and increase lean body mass during high intensity exercise and resistance training. Creatine may also help reduce muscle damage and inflammation following intense exercise. This can lead to a faster recovery period between workouts. It is found naturally in red meats and fish. Historically, the understanding of creatine and its potential benefits was first realized in the 1800s when it was discovered in skeletal muscle.
