First of all, you could explain to her that creatine is produced naturally by the body and can be obtained through foods such as red meat. Another thing is that creatine hasn't been proven to be harmful scientifically, and the most typical side effect is muscle cramping due to dehydration. Creatine is also a supplement that is promoted by many coaches at different levels to be a safe compliment to weight lifting and protein. Just do a search on creatine and you will get a plethora of sites regarding the scientific research behind it.

Basically, you need to sell her on the fact that you are trying to improve your body and overall health. It is not definitely not illegal, nor a steroid. Tell her that things to stay away from are prohormones that alter the chemical balances in your body. Creatine, however, is similiar to protein in that it helps muscle growth without changing the levels of hormones in your body.

All it does is hydrates the muscle. Tell her that her montly period is more detrimental to her health than your creatine.

Creatine is safe its it found in naturally in the the body. Hell if ur mom freeks out about creatine then she should freak out in eating fish too. Do what you want in life cause Life is too short

Creatine is not a steroid. Creatine is found all almost all red meats and some white meats. If creatine is so bad, then we would have to stop eating meat.
you could argue that point with her.
You could also argue the point that if she doesnt like Creatine, you would have to become Vegetarians.
Taking a powered or tablet form of creatine is easier then eating a 10 pound steak. Creatine is a dietary supplement and not a drug.
thats all it is.
