SHORT-TERM CREATINE USE DOES NOT AFFECT THERMOREGULATION
Rosene, J. M., & Whitman, S. A. (2002). Effects of short-term, high-dosage creatine supplementation on thermoregulation in females in a thermoneutral environment. Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, 34(5), Supplement abstract 813.
Females (N = 10) were supplemented with creatine (20 g/d) for seven days. Pre- and post-treatment cycle ergometry (30 min at 70-75% of VO2peak).
Thermoregulatory responses were similar before and after treatment.
Implication. Short-term creatine supplementation did not affect thermoregulatory responses in females.
