Effect Increase
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 20
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Average
Notes for this study:
In healthy omnivorous men, creatine supplementation (20 g/day for 5 days followed by 2 g/day for 6 weeks) increased muscle creatine (31% after loading, 14% after maintenance) and glycogen (13.5% after loading, normalized after maintenance), without any change in ATP concentration or plasma insulin, and only a trend to increase GLUT4 (30%).
