The effect of creatine supplementation appears not always and not at all. More than 100 scientific papers suggest that creatine monohydrate increases strength, helps to build muscle mass and improves athletic performance in different people, from athletes to patients with neuromuscular diseases. Most of these works is based on a study of men. And what about women? Canadian researchers have found that creatine monohydrate is not had no effect on the strength of women to train with weights on a 10-week program (four sessions per week). Women have increased in strength and mass, but this was the result of strength training. However, in the other studies have shown that the effect of creatine supplementation appears not everyone. This experiment was conducted in Canada, only 26 participants (13 persons in the experimental group), so that even a small number did not respond to supplementation of women may have an impact on the overall result.
And how to be popular today with the beta-alanine? Does he have a joint effect with creatine? Maximum power – the ability for rapid development of efforts – depends on the ability of the central nervous system to activate motor units (muscle fibers and their motor nerves) and keep them active. Neuromuscular fatigue occurs when a very large load, for example such as cycling sprint. With increasing duration of exercise central nervous system loses its ability to activate motor units. Scientists at the University of Oklahoma on the test results and the maximum operating capacity on a stationary bike come to the conclusion that beta-alanine and creatine monohydrate, and their combination inhibit neuromotor fatigue. The subjects took supplements in 28 days before the test exercise. Creatine and alanine showed its effect on long-term physical exercise, but use the two supplements at the same time proved no more effective reception of each separately.
