Do vegans need more creatin?

I think average normal vegans do not. But, vegan bodybuilders do because they body produces only a small amount of creatin for normal body functions.

Anyone disagree?

Well, I do not either but I assume if I did it will increase my growth.

meat eaters barely get any more creatine than vegans...one serving of creatine powder can only be equalled by eating something like 50 servings of steak. So creatine isn't found much more in a meat eater than a vegan...if meat eaters want extra they need to supplement not eat more meat...same goes for vegans. Anyway I got a lot of gains on creatine when I was younger and stopped taking it when I went vegan and my maxes ballooned...I'm gonna try taking it again in a few months to see how I react but I don't think I need it
