I've heard a lot of things about creatine and most of it isn't good.

Can anybody give me the lowdown on this supplement?

Put it this way, it wont hurt to try it!! From my experience then isnt any bad side effects and it not the type of drug you should worry about testing.

Nobody knows the long term effects, so you should try it, see if you like the effect it has, research the problems you may get(i havent had any) and decide if its good enough to keep taking.

I've only gone through a whole canister of creatine once, and I would say the results were obvious and almost overnight. I added 5-10lbs to my lifts after about 3 days to a week during the loading phase and your muscle stamina improves as well. The only thing that I didn't like, well at that time I wanted to gain weight , which it gave me an added 5-7lbs. but it gives you a bloated look you sorta lose your "chiseledness"

I've used it, I gained a good bit of more weight on my lifts only when I was using the creatine, but as soon as I went off the my lifting weight went down....I dont think I benefited much from it muscle gain wise but I did lift heavier and harder....

The only side effect, I experienced with it was acne all over my body and the face....


The best way to take a creatine, 1st make sure it is flavorless and NO SUGAR!.....Put it on a teaspoon/tablespoon/scoop whichever is the serving size for the person taking and put it in your mouth and swish it down with water and drink about 15-20oz of water right after using it.....

If you want to gain muscle mass, creatine gives you that push. DRINK A LOT OF WATER if you're planning to take it. You will piss like a camel (do they piss alot?). But since it generates water retention, you might find yourself dehydrated if you don't drink enough. You will look bigger, but it's not "real" muscle. It's your muscles pumped with water. Although the extra mass DOES help youpush and pull more leading to the formation of "real" muscles.

It's good if you know how to take it. There are two phases, the loading phase and the maintenance phase. I don't do the loading phase because my body reacts so well with it but when I stop, I shrink like a baloon. I use take it for 2 months, then stop for two months, then on agin for 2 months. Like that my body doesn't get dependant, but it gives my system that extra push. I was lucky enough not to have side effects like acne (like spinksjinx) but everyone is different.

When I used Creatine I gained like 5 kg in a period of 6 weeks :eek: . After I stopped using creatine my weight dropped i little but I was still about 4 kg heavier than before. The good thing about the Creatine was it made me much stronger. For example I went from benching 72,5 kg to 95kg :cool: (in 6 weeks)

By the way 1 lbs = 0.543 kg

it can be important to mix some creatine varieties into warm-ish water, or else they can be hazardous to the stomack.

creatine is a natural chemical in your body..red meat is full of creatine also. I've been taking it for about 2 years and haven't had any bad effects.

Have any of you guys tried the product called N02? I hear it works like creatine, but instead of water it pumps your muscles full of blood and it also helps you retain that "pump" effect after working out.
