Forget that artificial **** you don't need it. My cousin is medically trained and he looked into it. ANy benefit that you recieve from that manufactured rubbish you can get just as easily and cheaper through healthier natural foods. And your body extracts the goodness better from natural foods than proceesed stuff like cretene anyway. Just do martial arts, weights and eat well.

Yeah that seems to be the best idea, i used to do a lot of weights so i thought i'd try it out but i dont see what the hype is about. Its done nothing for me. I've used a fair few products over my time in martial arts and weight training and i cant say any of the main brands are worth buying

pro: you will be able to lift a bit more weight than usual
you store more water and you will look 'fuller'
contra: expensive (for what it is) and a lot of people I know and myself get unwell of it.
But what hannibal says...... I don't think that is true. Creatine is not like proteins or such....it's true you can for instance find enough proteins in natural food but that doesn't go for creatine....

Now, against such strong and well spoken argumentation I cannot possibly win
You get creatine from your food (meat and fish) and it's also produced by the body itself. Study proved that creatine in combination with training and carbs increases endurance and power....
I myself am very sceptic against it and I don't think it will make you gain a lot more. But you cannot get the same effect from eating more meat or fish

i have taken creatine twice, each time for a period of about a month. I did find that my lifting increased a lot, but taking it is a pain in the ass and it makes you piss like a racehorse. The second time i forgot to take it for a couple of days and couldn't be bothered re-loading. I you have the stuff lying around you may as well take it

I had some positive results with creatine. I admit it's really expensive, but I saw my lifts increase. It could have been a placebo effect or something but even so, it was worth it.
