Creatine is perfectly safe to take as a supplement. It is the most researched supplement on the market by far. It helps with recovery as well as explosive strength gains.    This isn’t a supplement only for Football players.  All athletes looking for performance improvements can benefit.

The benefits of creatine are:

  • Improved Strength
  • Improved Ballistic power
  • Improved Sprint ability
  • Improved Muscle endurance
  • Improved Resistance to fatigue
  • Improved Muscle mass
  • Improved Recovery
  • Improved Brain performance

 

I would suggest starting the athlete on a post workout scoop of creatine monohydrate. The dosage should be somewhere between 3-6 g. The only Issues we see with creatine, is that sometimes it upsets in athletes stomach, so better you figure that out after the workout than before.  If the individual tolerates the 3-6 g well, I would then split the 6 g in 2 to 3 g doses one pre-workout and one post workout for optimal usage.
