Healthy Creatine Slushy | Reflex SupplementsCreatine has been recognized by the scientific community, as well as the Health and Fitness Industry as a product that delivers improved muscle size as well as strength. Creatine is not only used for body builders, but for elderly to help with muscle deterioration, as well as people suffering from neurological problems. Creatine is a fuel source for ATP (provides energy for your body), which is an energy system used for short bursts of power and strength.

Main Benefits of Creatine:

  • High-intensity work
  • Enhances recovery
  • Improves anaerobic capacity
  • Muscle volume
  • Methylation (regulation of gene expression, protein synthesis, and RNA metabolism)
  • Brain Function (increases survival of nerve cells from environmental strains)
  • Improves glucose intolerance (studies suggest can help prevent diabetes)
  • Bone healing and repair
  • Sarcopenia (muscle loss due to the aging process)

Here is one of my favourite recipes using creatine. Paired with other healthy ingredients like glutamine (great for gut health, immune function, and muscle building), and electrolytes (to keep you hydrated) it’s a great way to stay cool on a hot summer’s day.
