I have always wondered if all athletes use creatine to ‘bulk up like Incredible Hulk. I have always wondered if use of power-enhancing supplements could really make one stronger and faster. I will not mention bigger because it is obvious that these athletes grow big and look big.
Creatine had become popular because of its effects on the muscles where they gain mass, and because they can increase power and performance as claimed.
I still believe that before one decides on taking any med or supplement, the pros and cons should be considered. Creatine, for example is popular among athletes but as to long term effects, no established conclusions are gathered yet. An ounce of prevention is always worth a pound of cure.
