Following an article about how the various benefits of creatine outweigh a possible study that claims creatine may lower oxidative stress levels, Muscular Development Store releases a statement.

On February 13, 2013, Muscular Development Store releases a statement following a Nutra Ingredients-USA article by Stephen Daniells regarding the news of how the many benefits of Creatine outweigh possible oxidative stress effects.

According to the Nutra Ingredients article, even though a recent study claims that creatine may lower levels of oxidative stress in athletes, the overall positive benefits of creatine still make it one of the top sports supplements available

The article states that, “Creatine is one of, if not the, most popular sports supplements in the world. Over 40% of athletes in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) are reported to use creatine, according to survey data. In addition, regular creatine supplements use in aging adults can greatly reduce muscle loss due to sarcopenia.”

The article mentions that researchers studied 26 male handball players by using a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. The men were split into three groups and studied over the course of 27 days. The group who was given creatine did have a decrease in their antioxidant status, but also had an increase in muscle strength.
However, according to the article, “no changes between before and after values were observed for TBARS (a measure of oxidative stress), urea, creatinine, body weight and height, body fat percentage, or upper muscular area.”

Brian Turner, representative of the Muscular Development Store, knows just how great the benefits of creatine can be. “Creatine is a big component for anyone looking to improve muscle strength. It’s one of the most popular types of sports supplements and not only does it promote muscle growth, it helps in preventing muscle loss as well.”
