dispute your definition of creatine

Aug 8, 2011

you said creatine increases body cell mass, but I would like to respectfully challenge that assertion. body cell mass refers to the number of cells, not the mass of each cell. and creatine doesn't increase the number of cells in the body. creatine doesn't even directly enhance nitrogen retention (although the strength increase it provides could lead to increased nitrogen retention). creatine only directly enhances water retention in the cells, in addition to increasing atp (energy) levels. rhgh is the only compound we know of that MIGHT increase body cell mass.

Response from Mr. Vergel

You are wrong about your definition of body cell mass

BCM includes intracellular water; even if there is no increase of cells or muscle fibers, BCM goes up with increased intracellular water.
