Can anyone give me some advice about whether or not I should be taking Creatine?

I have not longer started working out at the gym but I am going 4-5 times a week, mainly strength training with weights but a little cardio to start.

I am 6'4 and weigh 71kg. Slowly gaining a bit of weight since starting. I have upped my carbs and protein daily.

I take Clean Lean Protein everyday as well as b12 and flaxseed and vitamin c every other day but that's all for supplements.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Use the search button in the upper right hand corner to see what people have discussed previously about the use of creatine.

Jack Norris R.D. is a vegan registered dietitian and a cofounder of Vegan Outreach.

If you Google around a lot of people say that a loading phase isn't necessary. A loading phase can give some people mildly upset stomachs, temporarily, so that is good to consider.

Anyway, the best article you are likely to find:

Creatine's pretty safe as far as i know, i think some sources are extracted from fish or some such animal, anything labeled as CreaPure is fine

Creatine is one of the most well-known and research supplements that is known to work for bodybuilding. I would like to mention do it just take 5 g a day and don't think about it too much. You'll see an increase in strength definitely if it is your first time
