Creatine Powder: Side Effects

Weight lifting and muscle toning is a very tough task to engage in and for some of us, we want to maximize our results.

Supplements such as creatine powder are frowned upon and regarded with no small measure of scrutiny and even hostility from the novice body builder because there is a tendency to succumb to the fallacy that supplements are the same as physique enhancement drugs such as steroids which are harmful as well as illegal.

Whereas steroids artificially manipulate the body in order to achieve results, creatine powder works in perfect harmony with your body in order to produce results that you can be proud of.

Is taking this supplement cheating, or a form of shortcut, used by lazy trainers who do not wish to put in the requisite amount of hard work necessary to achieve in the body building industry?

No. Why?

Because for creatine to work (whether it is liquid creatine or just powder form) you need to actually exercise and push your body to the limit. Otherwise, drinking galleons of the stuff will not make the blindest bit of difference to your physique.

A common question that people who have never taken this supplement before is:

"Are there any side effects or dangers associated with the ingestion of this supplement and if so, what are they, what are the risk factors involved, and how serious could these side effects be to my overall health?"

First off, any substance that is ingested will affect the body in some way and creatine (irrespective of the form in which it is ingested in) is no exception to this rule.

A common complaint cited in relation to ingesting it is that it can cause intesential cramping, which itself is due to water depletion from the digestive tract of the person who has ingested the creatine monohydrate powder.

Uncomfortable and unpleasant, this particular side effect is thankfully very mild and short lived as well and therefore by itself, should not be any cause for alarm.

Some users have also reported an increase in urination, meaning that they have to empty their bladders on a more regular basis although this seems to be purely anecdotal and there is little in the way of scientific fact to validate, support or otherwise refute such claims.

This means you can buy creatine monohydrate with impunity.

The best way to avoid the potential side effects commonly associated with creatine powder is to ensure that you follow the directions for consumption to the absolute letter, without any deviation.
