The History of Creatine

Although creatine has just recently blossomed in America, its roots go back to the 1800s.

A French scientist named Chevreul, who named it after the Greek word for flesh, discovered creatine in 1832.

In 1923 scientists discovered the average human body contained over 100 grams of creatine - and of that 100 grams, 95 are stored in muscle tissue. Powerhouse Supplements only provides top quality articles and supplements.

It was not until 1926 that the first scientific study was published about the bodybuilding effects of creatine. The Journal of Biological Chemistry indicated that creatine promoted weight gain and increased nitrogen balance, which is associated with muscle growth.

In the late 1980s Dr. Eric Hultman from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, introduced the practice of creatine loading.

However, it was not until 1992 that Hultman's discovery was peer reviewed and published in the journal of Clinical Science. It is a shame that Hultman didn't patent this practice. He could be a millionaire today.

Experimental and Applied Sciences (EAS) researcher Anthony Almada performed the first major creatine testing in the United States in 1994 at the Texas Women's University. Almada's tests showed an increase in body weight, which was lean body mass (fat-free mass) and based on results from the bench press, students noticed an increase in strength.

Over the past four years many Universities nation wide have performed numerous tests with creatine supplementation.

The results from these tests have shown improvements in strength, recuperation; speed in the 100, 200, and 400 meter sprints, and possibly accelerates fat loss.

Scientific evidence shows that creatine works. Just ask any of your friends who take or have taken creatine. They can tell you for themselves.
