Creatine / Creatine
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has approved the following health claims for creatine:
- With a daily intake of 3 g, creatine increases physical performance during high-speed strength training as part of short-term intensive physical activity
- Daily intake of 3 g creatine can increase the effect of strength training on muscle strength in adults over 55 years of age
A positive effect occurs when:
a) if strength training is practiced regularly
b) the load can be increased over time and the strength training is performed at least three times a week for several weeks at an intensity of at least 65% to 75% of the 1-repetition maximum (**********)
