Bodybuilding Myths



Creatine has been used for decades as a way to increase muscle size and strength at a faster rate than one could do naturally. Creatine is a natural substance found in many meat products, and is not a steroid like some mis-informed people believe. In one sentence, creatine helps build muscle by allowing more energy to get to the muscle, and thus gives the user a better workout, helping that person to build muscle.

Today, there are tons of different forms of creatine available. The most basic kind is pure creatine monohydrate. You only need about 5-10 grams per day, and can get a 1000g container for under 10 bucks if you shop around. You can get creatine monohydrate in other products that have additional substances in them to help with absorption and other aspects of bodybuilding.

Kre-alkalyn creatine is another form of creatine that is newer and is said to be "ph" balanced, so it doesn't cause bloating. Some bodybuilders swear by it, and others don't see the difference between Kre-alkalyn and regular creatine monohydrate. Kre-alkalyn can be picked up for pretty cheap too.

Creatine ethyl ester is also a relatively new form of creatine that is supposed to be better than monohydrate. CEE is said to absorb into the muscles better and thus be more effective.

Today, many pre-workout and post-workout products have some form of creatine in them. These proprietary formulas are getting to be more popular as a way to super-charge the age-old supplement known as creatine.
