Creatine is present naturally in red meat. The biggest problem with red meat is you would need to eat at least five raw pounds in order to receive the creatine you need.

Your body also makes creatine.

Creatine aids in restoring the supply of your body's most important energy-producing chemical, ATP, or adenosine triphosphate.

As soon as you ingest creatine monohydrate you provide your muscles with what they need to make ATP. ATP helps your muscles to do extensive work in an effective manner.

Your body makes use of it during any temporary and demanding physical exertion. This includes body building or other exercise that involves weights, sprints, etc.

Creatine and more specifically, creatine monohydrate, has become one of the most popular and best selling supplements ever, without causing any bad side effects.

This supplement can be used by anyone involved in any type of physical activity especially if you’re interested in anti aging.

As with any supplement there will be someone who there are dangerous side effects.

However, this is simply not the case, there are only a couple of very minor side effects and no dangers of creatine for anyone in good health.

Any harmful side effects of creatine are for the most part a myth.

You need to remember that any side effects of supplements you may encounter will vary from person to person.

Here are the good effects of creatine:

  • You will improve your physical strength

  • You will have additional energy available during any physical activity or strength workouts

  • You will notice an increase in muscle tissue size when weight training

  • It helps to reduce muscle soreness or aches while working out that you would normally notice due to a lactic acid build-up (a side effect of exercise)

  • Some people notice lower fat levels while using creatine

  • Drastically improved athletic performance

  • It may help with various diseases including: Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, fibromyalgia.

  • It may also help reduce cholesterol levels and improve heart function

Some negative creatine side effects include:

  • Some people do experience some water retention
  • Cramps
  • Muscle spasms
  • Dehydration
  • Kidney damage (only if you already have a kidney problem)
  • Pulled muscles.

Over the past few decades there have been countless scientific investigations that have proven that there are no dangers for people who are in good health.

This supplement has been studied and examined more than any other in history and the conclusion is always the same: It's safe, effective and there are no negative creatine side effects – none.
