      There is no point cycling it. 3g a day is enough to eventually reach muscle saturation and maintain it. If you take creatine and do a blood test your creatinine levels will be high which docs might confuse for failing kidneys when they're actually working just fine.
      You get slightly increased strength, endurance and will look "fuller" as your muscles retain water better. Is it necessary? No. Will it make a huge difference? No. Will it help? Definitely

      It doesn't stress the kidneys, but can mess up kidney related blood work. So don't take it for a few days before having creatine kinase tested

      It is a meme.
      Creatine has no impact on hormone production nor their synthetisation into other byproducts, and hormones are what causes androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) in the first place. The transformation of testosterone into a byproduct called dehidrotestosterone binding to the hair follicles is what makes you lose hair eventually. Creatine and balding affect/are affected by completely separate and independent mechanisms.

          No it doesn't. Only one study has looked at whether creatine raises DHT, the group that saw a raise was well within normal levels and they started the study with lower than average levels. They were also doing resistance training which can raise testosterone. The "evidence" creatine raises DHT is shit, there's no biologically plausible mechanisms for how creatine would even raise DHT in the first place.

Specifically, DHT increased by 56% after the seven-day loading period, and remained 40% above baseline values after the 14-day maintenance period

Furthermore, baseline (prior to supplementation), DHT was 23% lower in the creatine group (0.98 nmol/L) compared to the placebo group (1.26 nmol/L). Thus the small increase in DHT in the creatine group (+ 0.55 nmol/L after 7 days of supplementation and + 0.40 nmol/L after 21 days of supplementation), in combination with a small decrease in the placebo DHT response (-0.17 nmol/L after 7 days of supplementation and -0.20 nmol/L after 21 days of supplementation) explains the “statistically significant” increase in DHT noted by van der Merwe et al.

While it is possible that creatine supplementation upregulated 5-alpha-reductase activity in these males (potentially leading to increased formation of DHT), no study has reported hair loss/baldness in humans.

        According to study it was 56% during loading and then 40% at maintenance.
        It is fucking awesome and all the benefits are well studied and confirmed.

        Unfortunately it fucks your hair so if you're already prone to hair loss, you're better off forgetting it even exists or I guess pairing it up with fin to compensate DHT effects.

    I use creatine everyday, I've noticed I can lift more for longer. Its not like a magical elixir of strength or anything but it will give you noticeable power and endurance. Doesn't really do much to the physique, it might make your chest and shoulders feel tighter or plump but its not like a steroid or anything. It does its job though. After a year of taking 2-5 grams every day I'll keep taking it for the rest of my life. I'd choose it over pre-workout if I had to make the choice.

    creatine just objectively helps with muscle development, it's been heavily researched and has no negative side effects, and the only reason not to take it as a lifter is if you're trying to hit a weigh-in for wrestling or something since creatine causes you to retain water (it doesn't make you lose fat slower though). Not using it is retarded.

    I tried it a couple of times. Both times it made my hair start falling out like crazy, so I stopped.

      I wouldn't trust that, whatever he's selling. He probably came in it.

        Well it's actually the owner of my gym and an ex pro BB so I'd be inclined to think he's legit. Then again when I asked him if you had to load it and what not he told me it doesn't require loading and that I should take it as a pre-workout (lolwoot). I just nodded and didn't push the topic further.

        26. I figure, I still have a full head of hair. I don't think it's the creatine but it was the only relevant thread and I just noticed yesterday after a haircut

    not anymore.
    one bag of creatine has become more expensive than one vial of testosterone.

    It didn't affect my training sessions and I didn't notice any significant gains after using it for 3 months daily. I know people who it worked well for though

      This. Sucks especially in my case as I'm already a naturally thirsty person, then got the bonus creatine thirst, now got prescribed lithium which also makes you thirsty. I spend half my day just filling my water glass.

          On days when I run it's terrible. I never feel satisfied. People get weirded out by how much water I drink. I think part of that is that a lot of normies will drink soda/juice and actively avoid water though.

          Liquid IV packets. They sell them all wallshart. They taste good, aren't packed with garbage, and I feel like they improve my overall hydration. Might be a meme but on days when I play soccer in 98 degree humid fuck weather I bounce back faster with one of these.

    Does the expiration date for creatine matter? I've only got a tub of 2 year expired creatine left and I'm too poor to restock.

    It makes my face puff up and as face is the most important muscle I stopped. It's a similar effect I get when I eat too much bread.

        I did read I'm less likely to have gluten intolerance on one of the meme dna reports lately but that doesn't preclude it I guess. A baguette a day makes me swell up like the michelin man. A good reason to get off the grain goblin I guess

    I drink a scoop of pic related before lifts, should I keep buying it or switch to a regular non-pre-workout creatine supplement? The regular stuff is cheaper, and I drink coffee so the caffeine "boost" doesn't do much for me.

    I don't. It doesn't do anything for me personally. I ran 5g daily for a year, saw no benefit.

    It works for some, doesn't for others. The benefit is very very mild.
