Can someone explain the Creatine Phenomena to me? I mean, sure I've taken creatine, and I'll probably take it again. It's a good supplement.
It seems like, though, that several people have misconceptions about creatine. There are an incredible number of posts about creatine. Stuff like, "if I take enough creatine along with my hour long biceps workout, will I get Hyuuuge?".
As far as I know, there are zero contraindications with creatine. It's entirely possible that I'm wrong, but I've been using creatine off and on for a long time now. Yet every other day someone asks if creatine can be "stacked" with some other supplement.
There are people who equate creatine with unsafe steroid use. "If I use creatine, will my balls shrink into raisins?" or "will I go into random rages if I take creatine?".
People. Listen. Creatine is a good, but rather mild supplement. It is not dangerous, and it's not magical. You won't go into random rages or shrink your willy. You will not sprout wings or grow horns. You will NOT just grow Hyuuuge if you take creatine.
