    Is Creatine Bad?

    I was told by a nutritionist a few years ago that creatine is bad to take. she said that it is naturally produced in the body, so when taking creatine supplements the body recognizes it has enough creatine in it's system and stops making it. so when you stop taking it your body won't start making it again. is this true or not.

    also could somebody give me a quick rundown about what creatine does and how much it will help me bulk

    thanks

    Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.

    I always herd that every three months or so you should go off creatine to give your kidney a break?


    Drink lots of water.;

    It doesn't mutate your DNA so even if it temporarily halths natural creatine production, when you cease supplementing, your DNA is bound to produce it again. Plus, it's found in foods. If you want you can take between 1-5 g per workout to avoid any "risk" of losing the natural production. You can take a week off every 6 weeks even.

    thats bs...ur nutritionist got creatine mixed up w/ roids. im still in HS and my health teacher told me that creatine is bad and that my tendons are gonna turn to dust in a couple of years...i laughed in his face and walked away.

    in conclusion, dont take creatine...you might explode (and you dont want that happening, do you? lol)

    This stuff is amazing with me, but I can't help but reading some websites. They get me a bit worried.

    "Individuals using creatine, including athletes, should be monitored by a healthcare professional. Users are advised to inform their physician or other qualified healthcare professional. "
