Creatine Powder

Question: How does creatine powder work inside your body? people use creatine powder to help them work out harder and longer for muscle building. but how does it help you do so? is it related to the creatine-phosphate in your cells that replenish ATP or is the name just a coincidence?

Answer: You've got it!!!... creatine is the body's short term/immediate supply of energy. So when you take your creatine drink, your essentially providing your muscle cells with a larger store of phospho-creatine. In theory this should help your muscles "work harder" and not fatigue as quickly, because they are now less dependent on cellular respiration (takes time to get the energy).
