I want to start taking Creatine Monohydrate, because I hear it allows for you to gain mass quicker. Now I know some guy who says "all it does is increase insulin levels". So im not sure if creatine will help me any or not. So I come here with advice on if creatine will help me grow faster and how it would actually do that.

Creatine does exactly what it claims to do and that is to retain water in your muscles. This is the point of creatine and it really is effective at keeping water in the muscles. Now, what happens is when your muscles are retaining water they are in an optimal state for building new muscle. As a result when you take creatine and water is retained in your muscles then when you train you will get more of an effect because your muscles are better capable of building muscle. After this period you may develop more strength and increased endurance as well.
but if you take creatine and don't put in the hard yards and train hard thinking your muscles are just gonna get bigger nothing will happen...
when i had a cycle of pure creatine monohydrate i got a bit angry and had some mood swings so watch out for that.. but overall i think its good
