Creatine monohydrate is a compound containing one water molecule in one creatine molecule. In the chemical industry, creatine is known as creatine monohydrate. In fitness, creatine includes creatine monohydrate, creatine hydrochloride and creatine complex. When creatine includes creatine monohydrate, creatine hydrochloride, and creatine complex, creatine monohydrate is called pure creatine. Therefor, if you want to know what creatine monohydrate is, you can start with what creatine is.
Creatine is a nitrogenous organic acid that provides energy to muscles and nerve cells.

Creatine is a nitrogenous compound stored in the muscles of mammals and fish. It is synthesized from three amino acids: Arginine, Glycine and methionine. Creatine can be synthesized by the body or taken from food. 95% of creatine in an animal is stored in skeletal muscle, making animal meat an excellent source of creatine.
Creatine's main purpose is to provide energy for the body. The body's activities are powered by adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is found in very small amounts. During strenuous exercise, the body enters a state of anaerobic exercise, which depletes ATP. The human body has about 50.7 grams of ATP, which can only sustain vigorous exercise for 0.3 seconds. After intense consumption of ATP, creatine can resynthesize ATP quickly enough to provide energy. Creatine also increases strength, builds muscles and speeds recovery from fatigue.
Creatine is found in foods such as fish and meat, but in small amounts (half a kilogram of meat provides only 1 gram). To reach a helpful daily allowance of 5 grams, you would have to eat 2.5 kilograms of meat a day, which is almost impossible, so extra supplements are needed. The recommended daily consumption of creatine powder is 5 grams, which can be brewed with warm water and the temperature of the water is better than 40 degrees. Another recommended way to eat it is to add creatine powder to whey protein powder or muscle building powder.
