Should Women Take Creatine?

What is creatine?

In layman’s terms, it’s an ‘amino acid stored in your muscles, brain and gut, and is required for all of the body’s fast, high-energy and demanding activity. ‘It’s a naturally-occurring compound and your body produces under 1g per day in your liver, after you eat protein.

Creatine for women can help to build muscle and also reduce fat mass, leading to a long-term change in body composition.

This can result in weight loss in two ways — the short-term loss of fat from better workouts, and the addition of lean muscle — which burns more calories overall.

Regular supplementation is key to sustaining beneficial levels of creatine in the muscle, so regular creatine supplementation is recommended.

Females have naturally lower creatine stores than men, meaning that we respond better to creatine supplementation and could experience double the performance improvement than males. Besides performance and muscle growth, creatine can also work wonders for PMS symptoms, and feeling your fittest and healthiest self during pregnancy, postpartum and menopause
