Creatine is a natural substance produced by the body that acts as an energy source for cells. Its main function is to help in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the molecule that provides energy for the cells in our body. Creatine can be found in red meat, fish, and seafood, but it is commonly consumed through dietary supplements for their optimal benefits. Creatine is synthesized in the liver, kidneys and pancreas and then stored in the muscle cells.
