Creatine may improve performance during short bursts of activity

CREATINE MAY IMPROVE PERFORMANCE DURING SHORT BURSTS OF ACTIVITY COLUMBUS, Ohio -- New research suggests that the dietary supplement creatine may enhance the performance of elite male swimmers during short-distance swims. Researchers at Ohio State University found that male swimmers who took creatine for two weeks improved their time by an average of 0.73 seconds during a 50-meter swim. However, female swimmers in the same study did not appear to benefit from creatine supplementation. This is one of the few studies that really looks at the effects of creatine in males and in females, said Nicole Leenders, co-author of the study and a postdoctoral researcher in Ohio States School of Physical Activity and Educational Services. But the improvement in the male swimmers speed became apparent only after almost two weeks of taking creatine. The body uses phosphocreatine during high-intensity exercise, when the muscles need a quick burst of energy. Phosphocreatine restores ATP, a compound that serves as fuel for muscles. Creatine and its derivative, phosphocreatine, occur naturally in the human body. Phosphocreatine is a high-energy compound necessary for muscle contraction. Some people take synthetic forms of creatine in hopes of
