Creatine: Myths, Benefits and Why You Need It

Creatine is a supplement that every single person out there can benefit from. No matter your age, size, health status, or activity level. 

Let’s address every common concern and question that most people have about creatine. I’m going to give you all of the information to ease your mind and hopefully, you’ll become a lifelong fan of this beneficial supplement. I’m not even selling it. So don’t worry there’s no sales pitch at the end. I truly just want you to do whatever you can to optimize your health for overall strength and longevity. 

In this episode: 
• Creatine monohydrate vs. creatine HCL
• Does creatine cause bloating or weight gain?
• Does creatine cause hair loss?
• Does creatine cause muscle cramps?
• Creatine and bipolar disorder
• Creatine and non-athletic lifestyle benefits

To sum it all up, creatine is safe, effective, and everyone should strongly consider using it throughout any stage of life. It aids in brain health, athletic performance, muscle health, bone health, sleep quality, and mood. And these are facts that have been proven over and over by legitimate scientific studies. 

Don’t get hung up on the brand. Just look for a label that says creatine monohydrate. I highly recommend this product not just for performance but also for longevity, optimizing aging, and protecting health through the lifecycle.
