Will creatine help improve my running endurance and stamina?

What effect would creatine have on improving the recovery time when I try to push for longer distances; I am not talking about injury but rather muscle fatigue and overall lethargy.

I lost 4 inches in my waist and 24 pounds in 8 weeks. Ascential Bioscience Rocks!

    No. Sorry.

    “Creatine is often taken by athletes as a supplement for those wishing to gain muscle mass (bodybuilding). There are a number of forms but the most common are creatine monohydrate – creatine bonded with a molecule of water, and Creatine ethyl ester (CEE) – which is creatine monohydrate with an ester attached. A number of methods for ingestion exist – as a powder mixed into a drink, or as a pill.

    There is scientific evidence that taking creatine supplements can marginally increase athletic performance in high-intensity anaerobic repetitive cycling sprints, but studies in swimmers and runners have been less than promising, possibly due to the weight gain. Ingesting creatine can increase the level of phosphocreatine in the muscles up to 20%. It must be noted creatine has no significant effect on aerobic exercise (Engelhardt et al, 1998).”

    ^_^ good luck
