  • A nitrogenous organic acid that occurs naturally in vertebrates. Can be acquired through dietary consumption or formed from L-arginine, glycine and L-methionine in a multi-step reaction that occurs in the kidney and liver.
  • High-energy reservoir for the rapid regeneration of ATP. Its main role is to facilitate recycling of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) primarily in muscle and brain tissue via the action of creatine kinase(s).
  • Supplementation is investigated for the use in myopathies and enhancement of sports performance, primarily by increasing muscle mass. It is also investigated as a treatment of neuromuscular diseases, where it may aid in neuroprotection and by improving the cellular bioenergetic state.
  • Antioxidant compound.
  • Thermogenesis enhancer in beige adipocytes. Creatine cycling is important for thermogenesis and an altered creatine cycle could lead to obesity.
  • Enhancer of energy expenditure through stimulation of mitochondrial ATP turnover.
