    Exclamation Creatine Weakens Bones!?!?

    Alright so Im working out with a group of people this morning (late 20s and 30s). We were talking about creatine and one of them said the it makes your bones weaker.

    "Creatine takes calcium from your bones and adds it to your muscles"

    That is exactly what one of them said. He said he used to take creatine and shortly after broke his wrist and researched it and found that fact. Then another guy said he took creatine when he was playing college football and up to then, he had never broken a bone in his body. Few months after he took creatine (cycled), he broke his leg playing football.

    Is this true? They said creatine for bodybuilders is fine but dont take creatine if your power train and do heavy sprints, etc. And thats the kind of training I do do.

    So can somebody clear this up for me? (I take Green MAG)

    Creatine isn't anything too exotic. If you're a carnivore, you're eating creatine all the time. These people are just regurgitating something they heard because it amused and intrigued them. They have absolutely no idea what they're talking about.

    Creatine caused my wife to be deployed to the Middle East with the Army. She started taking it for several weeks at a time starting nearly 2 years ago. ALmost immediately after she started taking it the Army said they would deploy her, though they backed out twice, but then after her last contest last year she started a long process of trying to put on 10+ lbs of muscle, and as a part of that she too creatine for several months, during that time the Army let her know she was going to be deployed. Nothing else changed it was just the addition of creatine and suddenly they want to send her to Afghanistan for a year. Its obvious that this is a little known side effect of creatine and I would recommend anyone in the reserves, guard or active duty avoid creatine unless they want to see some action.

    I took creatine and had sex out of wedlock. Creatine is the anti-christ.

    It increases collagen 1(alpha 1) mRNA so it may reduce fracture risk

    I read that it makes your muscles disporportionately stronger than your connective tissue, so people who do power sprints(hockey, football) might be generating enough force to seriously strain the connective tissue.

    My only solution is to take it lightly, 1-2 grams before a workout. Forget the loading concept. And on sports day, keep it under 1.5 grams. These low amount will just increase muscle energy without making them "too" strong.

    So can somebody clear this up for me? (I take Green MAG)
    you can't prove cause and effect.


    if X % of people that got into car accidents had eaten peppers the day they got in the accident does that somehow mean that peppers increase the risk of car accidents?

    i hate people that do **** like this.... try to connect the dots to things that have nothing to do with ANYTHING to sound smart.... maybe you broke your freaking leg because you got side lined by a 250 lb foot ball player...

    Here's the claim for those interested:

    "Where to start? Creatine and muscle cramps, muscle tears, torn biceps and hamstring pulls. So many questions, so little answers. But it seems that we have many opinions. I'm a nutritional adviser here in the San Diego, CA area. I have studied the nutritional habits of athletes for a real long time. This is what I have observed from them. This is a short version, and it is my own.

    Athletes that use creatine, especially Creatine Monohydrate, seem to all have some common problems. These problems are related to their bodies lack of calcium absorption or the depletion there of. Most of the minor problems of taking creatine have to do with things like muscle cramps. Anyone who knows anything about nutrition will tell you that muscle cramping is caused by a mineral deficiency, calcium.

    So, how does this happen? In order for the body to use creatine it has to be phosphated. Creatine monohydrate gets converted to creatine phosphate by utilizing the bodies stores of phosphorus. Now, when you use up all the phosphorus in the body you can't hold on to the bone structure, (weak bones). It also contributes to calcium deficiencies. Calcium is needed for muscle contractions! IF YOU DON'T HAVE CALCIUM BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE PHOSPHORUS IN THE MUSCLE, YOU CAN'T HAVE MUSCLE MOVEMENTS. YOU WILL HAVE CRAMPING, YOU WILL TARE, YOU WILL RIP AND YOU COULD DO SERIOUS DAMAGE TO TENDONS AND LIGAMENTS.

    If you are a BODY Builder, and you don't make any fast movements, you might be OK for awhile. It's the long term effect it has on your bone structure that you should be aware of. If you are an athlete, and you do any kind of sport where you may have to make any sudden movements, YOU SHOULD TAKE A LONG!.....HARD!....LOOK! at this stuff.

    Creatine in its many forms....will build muscle! But at what price. Can you say that after one year, two years, five years or ten years down the line that your body will be better for it."

    thats funny because my friend said dat dere createeens causes car accidents


    Alright so Im working out with a group of people this morning (late 20s and 30s). We were talking about creatine and one of them said the it makes you get in car accidents

    "Creatine takes dat dere iron frum ur cars sub frame and axles and puts it in it's engine ohs noes"

    That is exactly what one of them said. He said he used to take creatine and shortly after got in a car accident, he researched it and found that fact, that exact fact! he told me man, he was like yea i found that on dat dere internets, I asked him if he could show me the site where he found dat dere fact but he said the yahoo geocities site got canceled. Then another guy said he took creatine when he was playing college football and up to then, he had never been in a car accident! Few months after he took creatine (cycled), he got t boned by a semi!!!

    Is this true? They said creatine for bodybuilders is fine but dont take creatine if your power train and do heavy sprints, etc. And thats the kind of training I do do.
