From what I read indifferent websites, Creatine is a nitrogenous organic acid that naturally occurs in vertebrates and helps to supply energy to muscle cells.

Most athletes use it to strengthen their muscle and improve their performance. Isn't it bad for overall health?

What does creatine normally do in the body?

In the body, creatine is changed into a molecule called "phosphocreatine" which serves as a storage reservoir for quick energy. Phosphocreatine is especially important in tissues such as the voluntary muscles and the nervous system which periodically require large amounts of energy.

It's bad to take too much creatine, as well as any health or muscle growth supplements. You should consult med. specialist before taking any supplements.

Many experts believe that short-term creatine supplementation in healthy individuals is safe. You should remember that creatine should not be used by individuals under the age of 18.
