Creatine improve cycling sprint performance

Does creatine improve cycling sprint performance?

Effectiveness Rating for Creatine's Ability to Improve Cycling Sprint Performance

The effectiveness rating is a measure of how well creatine is able to improve cycling sprint performance. The overall rating for this claim is 2.2 out of 3. There is some research showing the supplement's ability to deliever on this particular claim is warranted. Using Creatine to improve cycling sprint performance may lead to positive results.

Confidence Rating for Creatine's Ability to Improve Cycling Sprint Performance

The confidence rating is a mesure of how valid the effectiveness rating is. This rating is based on how many studies are included in the database on this topic.

There are 12 studies in the database on creatine; the confidence rating is 240. A score above 80 means the effectiveness rating for this supplement is reliable. A score under 80 means there is insufficient evidence to ensure a reliable effectiveness rating.
