Lets Talk: Should Women Take Creatine
The misinformed media and lousy reporting still leave many women believing that creatine is a "guys only" supplement. Creatine is one of the most researched supplements out there. Studies have shown time and time again that creatine can enhance strength, increase lean body mass, and improve exercise performance—regardless of sex.
Women Taking Creatine
Studies have shown that both untrained and resistance-trained women can significantly increase both upper-body and lower-body strength when supplementing with creatine. Additionally, a 2003 review study found that women have greater relative improvements in strength compared with men: 14.8 percent versus 5.5 percent.
Creatine has also been shown to benefit athletes outside of the weight room. It improved sprint and agility performance in elite soccer athletes preparing for the Olympics and decreased recovery time for cyclists. [6-8] That's why creatine is a top choice supplement for endurance athletes.
