Creatine + endurance training = a lot more mitochondria in your muscle cells
The researchers got two groups of rats to swim for one hour a day, 5 days a week, while two other groups of test animals did not have to swim.
One group of inactive rats received extra creatine through the feed, as did one group of active rats. If the rats were adult humans, they would have received 4-7 grams of creatine daily.
Training increased the amount of mitochondria in the muscle cells of the rats. The combination of training and supplementation increased this amount even further.
We, the prosaic compilers of this free web magazine, think that creatine supplementation can also be interesting for ambitious endurance athletes. After all, more mitochondria mean that muscle cells are able to generate more energy, which means that stamina increases considerably.
Creatine supplementation may become even more effective in combination with curcumin, L-citrulline or pre- or probiotics.
