Now i know this has been done to death, and its generally safe to say that creatine is fine to take.
But what about dosage in excess of 10g/day? every day? your kidneys and liver have to flush all that out.
I’m 22 years old and still have arguments with my dad about creatine, he works with a guy who used it and now have liver and kidney problems. i told him he was probably eating spoonfuls of it every day.
currently ill take about 5g only on training days, i don’t see how this could hurt my liver of kidneys, but it’s hard to sound credible without journals or papers of studies, i looked on pubmed but didn’t really find anything.
me: 5g, 3-4 times a week
other guy:5g x 4 x every day
difference? im betting yes
Berardi advocates up to 20g a day, (morning, peri workout, night) when bulking.
other people say to cycle it
are we using too much creatine? perhaps all you need is 3-5g a day every day.
Yes its been done to death but there hasn’t really been a consensus on it
