This book is of interest to anyone who wants to learn about creatine. It gives test results, facts and a very accurate description of the way creatine works in the human body. Plus all the references to back it up. This book must be priority no. 1.

Even though the book is printed back in 1997 the science information inside it looks like being up to date for persons wanting to know the working of the creatine. Which we now a day, especially in Google, can se enormous much advertising for, and most concerning body building. And as all the other writings by Passwater, we get it from a person having much knowledge concerning what he writes about.

Creatine, which is a compound in our body for supplying energy to our muscles, was discovered back in 1832, and by 1923 it was known that we have around 100 grams of creatine stored in the muscle tissues. The possibility by creatine to increase the muscles seizes was first discovered in 1988 and first in 1992 came to more knowledge between researchers.

Among other things Passwater goes looking at the results found in the science studies concerning muscles. We learn that the muscles can be increased up to 50 % by getting 5 grams of creatine 4 to 6 times a day, in most cases up less than 28 day, when at the same time doing very hard training. The bodies each day under hard training mostly are using up to 2 grams of creatine and the lever over 24 hours are producing up the max possibility of the same 2 grams of creatine.

And among other we read about a research example with only one leg being trained by pedaling the bicycle ergo meter, and this resulting in the increase of 37 % for this leg and 25 % for the not exercised leg!

And besides we also learn that the muscles have a half life on 4 to 6 weeks! Here is something important to remember if hit by at sickness or accident resulting in long time without the possibility for using muscles for example by walking around.
