I am bewildered by the amount of questions in this list that had the answers in the above article about Creatine. All you had to do was read "all of it", and pretty much every question in this list was answered. As I find with numerous topics on any internet post, people are just too lazy to read the whole article and just ask a question for a "spoon fed answer", instead of reading the whole article, which was extremely in depth. If you are too lazy to read this article yourself, I'm guessing you don't have the necessary dedication to stick to a well thought out training routine, and have a diet specifically for your own personal goals. So "Creatine" isn't going to help those lazy types. "Read the whole article". Get some dedication, and get some goals and do the necessary things to achieve those goals. "On your own". No one is going to hold your hand at the gym.
As with all supplementation, consult your physician first (especially if you have a medical condition). Do not use if you are pregnant/lactating or under the age of 18. Remember that an adequate state of hydration must be maintained when using this product. Have at least 8-12 large glasses of water per day. Taking more than the recommended dose will not improve results and may cause adverse reactions. For best results an appropriate muscle gain eating plan and training programme should be followed. High intakes of free-form amino acids may cause gastric discomfort in sensitive individuals - if this prolongs, reduce dosage or discontinue. Do not exceed recommended daily intake. Nutritional supplements should not replace a varied diet. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
