Creatine increase strength

Does creatine increase strength?

Effectiveness Rating for Creatine's Ability to Increase Strength

The effectiveness rating is a measure of how well creatine is able to increase strength. The overall rating for this claim is 2.4 out of 3. There is some research showing the supplement's ability to deliever on this particular claim is warranted. Using Creatine to increase strength may lead to positive results.

Confidence Rating for Creatine's Ability to Increase Strength

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 21 studies in the database on creatine; the confidence rating is 420. 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.
