June 2, 2006, Newsletter Issue #227: Creatine Side Effects

Tip of the Week

Creatine has been well studied and is generally safe, when used as directed. Creatine side effects include weight gain, and for some people, gastrointestinal distress. Some sports teams have reported muscle cramping and possibly dehydration when players use creatine. It's important to drink lots of water if you are taking creatine and never take more than the recommended dosage. Always check with your doctor before taking this supplement.
