Ive heard it can increase energy and protien synthesis but ive also heard you just pee it out and nothing happens. Which one is correct
The common mechanism for creatine supplementation is known to be the increase of intramuscular creatine stores. It is known that CP is used toATP, and that the amount of CP naturally present is well below the maximum amount of CP that the body can store. Increasing dietary creatine allows the maximum amount of CP storage to be reached, which in turn provides more capacity to regenerate ATP.

I can definetly do more reps when using creatine. I do take a week or two off regularly because I've heard that one can become insensitive to it when used a lot. Has anyone any opinions/knowledge on that?
