Reviews for Creatine
For Not Listed / Other: "Creatine was recommended to increase muscle tone. I am a female, 5'1" 118 lbs. I took 100mg daily. I quickly developed a horrible body odor. It was described as smelling like I just cleaned an aquarium. Unfortunately I could not smell the odor on myself and not everybody was able to smell it, but after anonymous complaints at the gym and finally from a good friend I determined the cause was the creatiine."

For Herbal Supplementation: "Creatine is an effective supplement but one of the serious side effects caused by overdosing it is diarrhea. Usually during the loading phase you might experience bad diarrhea and remmeber DO NOT drink it with beer or milk, that would cause very painful diarrhea and stomach-ache."
