Post-workout supplements with creatine are a group of supplements with various forms of creatine that accelerate post-workout regeneration. These supplements are often enriched with ingredients that increase the absorption of creatine or interact with it in synergy such as carbohydrates, taurine, beta-alanine or alpha-lipoic acid.
Creatine has strong ergogenic properties, and the post-workout supplementation with creatine increases its content in skeletal muscles. As a buffering agent, it helps to get rid of unnecessary metabolic products created during a physical activity. Saturation of muscle with creatine allows improving the process of creating ATP and increasing the possibility of generating muscle strength. It may also increase the water content in muscle cells, helping to deliver nutrients and speed up muscle reconstruction as well as to intensify anabolic processes.
Supplements in this category are recommended for people who want to shorten the time necessary for regeneration of the body after a physical exercise and increase strength and muscle mass. These supplements are ideal for strength training and martial arts sportsmen who, due to the short and intense activities, derive from the phosphagen system. Advanced ingredients of post-workout preparations enriched with creatine allow for an effective increase of exercise capacity during subsequent trainings.
