Creatine is a nitrogenous organic acid that naturally occurs in vertebrates and helps to supply energy to muscle cells. In solution, creatine is in equilibrium with creatinine.

Creatine is naturally produced in the human body from amino acids primarily in the kidney and liver. It is transported in the blood for use by muscles. Approximately 95% of the human body's total creatine is located in skeletal muscle. Genetic deficiencies in the creatine biosynthetic pathway lead to various severe neurological defects.
