Creatine is naturally formed in the liver through a chemical process that combines several amino acids together. On average our bodies produce and use approximately two grams of Creatine each day and under normal conditions, Creatine is also found naturally occurring in animal proteins such as chicken, beef and fish. For example, a pound of raw beef contains around 1.8g – 2.2g of Creatine.
