A Dr. Shares the Negative Side Effects of taking Creatine

In the most recent issue of Sports Nutrition INSIDER, Dr. Ralf Jäger is co-founding partner of Increnovo LLC, shared the straight, no-marketing hype, BS-FREE truth about creatine. Everything you ever needed to know but were never going to find out from the magazines! Ha…

I loved this Q&A:

Q: Does creatine supplementation have ANY negative side effects?

A: Dr. Jäger: Common side effects include gains in strength and improved brain function, which sometimes can lead to feeling overconfident. Besides that, creatine is one of the most researched supplements out there. If there were any major adverse side effects, after more than 20 years of research and widespread use, we should have seen them by now. One thing is almost certain, if you take creatine, you will gain weight. The initial weight gain of about 1 to 2 kilogram during the first week…

This one on the less well known benefits of Creatine is also great.

Q: We know that regular creatine supplementation enhances body composition and exercise performance. What are some of the other benefits of creatine supplementation?

A: Dr. Jäger: Creatine makes you stronger, faster and smarter. Yes, it does more than help build muscles and improve exercise performance. New science shows that it also boosts brainpower. It helps you stay physically strong and mentally sharp at all stages of your life. Creatine crosses the blood-brain barrier and creatine supplementation has been shown to increase brain creatine concentrations by approx. 9%. Consequently, creatine has been shown to improve cognitive performance that is temporarily impaired due to sleep deprivation or permanently impaired due to aging. Even short-term creatine supplementation benefits brain function, as 8g of creatine monohydrate for 5 days prevented mental fatigue in a serial calculation task.

So, in quick summary… Creatine is the most researched, safest supplement out there that can make you stronger, faster, smarter…and help you be more alert when you’re sleep deprived, more energized all day long. It’s good for endurance athletes and power athletes. It’s not implicated in cramping or muscle tears.

It’s not expensive, you need no fancy formulas. It’s not necessary to ingest with carbs. I still say it’s best NOT to add to your protein though. There is no need to cycle it.

So, what blame fool would not be taking it. What you need, simple, pure, Creatine Monohydrate CREAPURE brand for best results. That’s it… that’s all. Take a scoop every day. I do it in warm water to make sure it’s dissolved and fuel up and I’m done. That’s all.

And when you’re ready for the pure, clean, simple CREAPURE welcome back to an old freind in PhoPhaGen2… It’s just what the doctor would order if he knew well enough to.
