SHORT-TERM CREATINE SUPPLEMENTATION DOES NOT AFFECT THERMOREGULATION
Rosene, J. M., Whitman, S. A., & Fogarty, T. D. (2003). A comparison of thermoregulation with short-term creatine supplementation between genders in a thermoneutral environment. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 35(5), Supplement abstract 1199.
Males (N = 10) and females (N = 10) were supplemented with creatine monohydrate (20 gm/day) for seven days. Pre- and post supplementation 30-min cycle ergometer tasks were completed at 75% VO2max.
Short-term creatine supplementation did not affect thermoregulatory capabilities of males or females.
Implication. Male and female thermoregulatory responses are similar under a short-term creatine supplementation condition.
