Common Uses: Improving the athletic performance of young, healthy people during brief, high-intensity exercise such as sprinting. Parkinson's disease. Creatine might slow the worsening of some symptoms in people with early Parkinson's disease, Increasing strength and endurance in people with heart failure, Increasing strength in people with muscle diseases such as muscular dystrophy, Slowing loss of sight in an eye disease called gyrate atrophy, Improving symptoms of a muscle disease called McArdle's disease. There is some evidence that taking high-dose creatine daily can increase exercise capacity and decrease exercise-induced muscle pain in some patients with McArdle's disease.
Warnings: Creatine is LIKELY SAFE for most people when used at recommended doses. Creatine can cause stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and muscle cramping.When taken by mouth in high doses, creatine is POSSIBLY UNSAFE. There is some concern that it could harm the kidney, liver, or heart function. However, a connection between high doses and these negative effects has not been proven.
