So 8 months a year? Why you drop it for 4 months? Is there any specific reason for this type of approach?

Is there any specific reason for this type of approach?

Personally, I cut creatine during summer because it causes dehydration (I live in a hot country) and makes me appear leaner but that's just me.

Yeah , I get it. It's known for adding some water weight ,even though very small.

is your dad or either granddad bald?
do not use
otherwsie
use it if you have money to blow. it works but the effect isn't significant.

Lucas Perez
Lucas Perez

Yes, but only if you stick to the brands which synthesize their creatine instead of sourcing it from animal carcasses. I worked in the industry for a while and lets just say eating a lot of prion-tainted hamburgers isn't the only way to contract creutzfeldt-jacob disease...

which brands you suggest?

Joshua Russell

well creatine will accelerate your balding if you are genetically predisposed to it.

Kayden Rodriguez

I've heard that but still not that much of evidence supporting it. Also my previous creatine usages didn't really effect me (at least I didn't notice anything)

arbitrary cutoff at 100 participants
would 101 participants in a study be satisactory or would you just go "lol less than 150 people in a study"?
uncontrolled environment
name literally any study on supplements done with a "controlled environment" for months. literally never happens because its completely impractical.

Luke Davis

it helps your muscles retain water not your fat
creatine won't make you look bloated theres no scientific reasoning as to why it could

OP here. I had a quick trip to my friend's supplement shop and bought this one instead( experimenting with different brands). Another one of my friends has bought Olimp and he is pretty happy with that.

It was one short study where DHT levels spiked during loading phase and then went to near-regular levels after subjects started taking 5g/day

Dominic Nguyen
Dominic Nguyen

Once i'm done with my initial month of 5g per day and creatine reaches a limit in muscles, should i still take 5g every day? Or something like 3g is enough to maintain?

Lincoln James
Lincoln James

Mine says 1 serving(5 g) a day. Honestly 5 grams is very little amount itself , I don't think you need to lower it to 3 g.

Carson Johnson
Carson Johnson

Yeah, it spiked while they took 25g/day like retards. The study also left out age/height/race/average DHT of both groups/average test of both groups/etc. So much shit that can skew the results with such a small sample

Christian Diaz
Christian Diaz

Also, if I'm right, test subjects were rugby players. And we just gonna ignore their possible drug use while under test?

Jeremiah Stewart
Jeremiah Stewart

In defense of the study, they said test pre/post stayed the same for both groups but they don't even give numbers on that so it's kinda meaningless too

Ryder Nguyen
Ryder Nguyen

yes

Jeremiah Flores
Jeremiah Flores

I take 4-6 grams per day.
Im not bald (long blonde hair).
I feel like i get stronger and i recover after training quicker.
I tried that Olimp creatine (tabs), and it is one of my favorites, but i tried 3 times cheaper ones and works simillar or even exacly the same.

Joshua Brooks
Joshua Brooks

how long have you been taking creatine?

Jeremiah Diaz
Jeremiah Diaz

Not too long, 1 year i think, monohydrate mostly.

William Foster

tfw 22 yo and balding

Kevin Morgan
Kevin Morgan

I took creatine for 2 years. I've been balding slowly since 16 and so has my brother who is 2 yrs older than me. I'm now 23 and have a much better hairline than he did at my age despite the creatine.

I just came off creatine and lost 3kg in weight so i'm deffo going to take it again.

Jackson Peterson
Jackson Peterson

Should it dissolve fully in water or not? Mine doesn't dissolve at all, but I drink it immediately.

Connor Bell
Connor Bell

doesn't make a difference.

Xavier Price
Xavier Price

just get it in orally , doesn't matter how...

Andrew Wood
Andrew Wood

Try warm water. Even sugar won't be fast to dissolve in cold water.

Camden Reed
Camden Reed

Because there isn't anything wrong with it. It's the most studied and the safest supplement out there. The only 'con' people come up with is creatine makes you retain more water

user you must do your duty to stop perpetuating this LITERAL meme. I've been taking creatine monohydrate every single day for almost a year now and I still have a full head of hair. anyone that says otherwise has literal shit genetics.

Chase Rivera
Chase Rivera

Put a spoon in your mouth and wash it down with water. Literally takes 2 sips and you're fine, no need to dissolve it.

Matthew Watson

Also the dose was insane in that study iirc. They had people taking like 25mg. Most people take 5mg

anyone else here using redcon1 creatine?

Wyatt Rogers
Wyatt Rogers

no. redcon1 is expensive af here. 3x the price of other popular brands.

Brayden Young
Brayden Young

Pros
boosts endurance by sending water to feed glycogen in the muscles

cons
Has had minor links to hair thinning and premature balding (not 100% proven but their is a link)
You have to drink a lot of water to receive benefits
You won’t receive benefits till a estimated 3 weeks, you can load on for a week but let me warn you, you’ll be shitting pure liquids for that week

I prefer beta alenin/10

Anthony Jenkins
Anthony Jenkins

I didn’t experience any bowel or stomach issues when I was loading. I was urinating more often but I was also drinking a ton more water than usual, too

Being such a brainlet you fall for meme symptoms existing that have never been documented even after multi-year long studies

Jason Cox
Jason Cox

No they aren't. The study everyone quotes for the "seven day peak" LASTED SEVEN DAYS. THERE WAS NO TESTING AFTER A WEEK.

Fuck, Google ejaculation and testosterone. It's literally retard tier reading comprehension that invented it. A larger three week study saw sustained higher test three weeks out. The difference is really not enough to do shit to gains btw.

creatine makes you retain more water
That's not even really a bad thing. Intermuscle water is what causes them to heal faster.

Connor Butler

Source?

Mason Barnes
Mason Barnes

Yes, there is literally no reason not to take it unless you're cutting because it is proven to cause water retention and retaining water=weighing more but even then you could argue it doesn't matter since water weight doesn't mean much unless you're a competing bodybuilder.

B-but it causes hair to fall out!
One single study, which has never ever been replicated, has found this. Compared to the countless studies showing it is one of the few supplements that actually make a difference. If you're that concerned about losing your hair, I hate to break it to you but you're probably already pre-disposed to losing it anyway. If you're going to lose your hair, you're going to lose your hair. There isn't jack you can do about that.

I know it is a meme, but the hair thing really does piss me off. I've been taking creatine for years, my hairline hasn't moved at all. The people who force this shit are robbing impressionable noobies of some sick ass gains.
