Cr

Abbreviation for creatine, which is an amino acid derivative that has been known to enhance strength and build muscle. Often used by athletes for its effects on muscular endurance and strength. Cr is capable of becoming transformed into PCr and used as a source of energy. Because people with HD often suffer from energy deficits, supplementation with Cr can possibly benefit PHD’s by increasing energy availability.
