Is creatine bad for your body?



  1. 0 Votes

    Potentially, creatine may be bad for your heart, and has a chance of creating kidney stones. It also causes slightly more water to be stored in your muscles, and may cause gas and bloating. However, these effects are considered to be relatively minor, and not much testing has really been done on whether creatine has serious negative side effects.

    I hope this helped!
