Is Creatine Safe To Use?

By Jared Silver

More than ten years have passed, but I still have the memories of the actual first time I tried it.

Lots of magazines and advertisements said that you would get large muscle gains by using it and that was something I had been hoping for. Several of my friends also thought the idea of using it was a good one too.

Creatine is a natural protein that is produced by the body and it just didn’t seem as dangerous as taking a substance that was artificial and might promise to build mass.

Let’s go into a few of the pros and cons of creatine, as there are definitely arguments to be made on both ends. Ultimately, the decision as to whether it’s right for you or not will be in your hands. On the positive side of things, it’s been scientifically proven to speed up the recovery time of your muscles. What does this mean?

You’ll essentially be able to lift weights for longer without getting tired like you normally would. This leads to both gains in strength, as well as increases in lean muscle mass since the extra effort you’re putting into your workouts will help to build mass.

To the point, creatine absolutely works. In order to get the most from this supplement, you have to work out on a regular basis or your time will just be wasted. Speaking negatively, it has been known to make you dehydrated. Thus, when you are in the middle of a creatine cycle, always drink a lot more water than you usually would.

Some people also believe that many of the gains you end up making have to do with the water weight that the supplement adds. They also believe that this gives them a bloated look. While it’s true that your body will retain more water while on it, this doesn’t tell the whole story. You’ll be putting on a combination of both muscle and water weight, so you’ll still have results to show for it no matter what.

When all is said and done, the decision as to which way to go ultimately rests in your hands.

A good approach may be to try it in moderation before committing to larger servings.

Aside from muscle building, the writer also regularly articles on static cling window decals andAmerican flag decals.
