I am thinking about trying some out. How many of you here have used it? Is it safe? Did you have good results?

Some basic info about creatine. Also goto the forums at the site, tons of great info!

I didnt notice anything when I took Creatine Monohydrate. Might need to try something stronger with a good delivery system cuz I assume my body just doesnt respond to mono creatine.

Creatine Monohydrate (the synthetic version of creatine phosphate which your body produces), does definately work. There are several peer reviewed journal articles that demonstrate it. A couple of keys: 1) Forget the loading phase, 2) take the creatine after the workout not before (you have to deplete the creatine levels in the muscle or you have no reason to uptake more), 3) drink lots of water, 4) cycle it for a month on and a month off or you will cause a down regulation of creatine kinase (the enzyme that breaks down creatine phosphate).

Thanks!
