    So when is the best time to take it? I have been adding it to my BCAA’s during my workout but was wondering if it should be taken before a workout?

      If you prefer to take it during your workout and you feel like you’re seeing the benefit then that’s the perfect time for you to use it! If you are looking to switch things up though, I suggest taking it right after your workout 🙂

    I really want to try Creatine but I have heard over and over that if there is a history of baldness in your family that Creatine can rapidly speed this process in both men and women. 😔. Unfortunately my mom and sister both have very thin hair so this scares me. Thoughts!

      That’s an excellent question Becky. I’m not aware of any cases of IdealLean creatine causing or contributing to hair loss. However, for an answer more specific to you and your situation we suggest speaking to your doctor 🙂

    I’m so glad that you wrote about this. The internet goes back and forth on the topic. In the past I’ve noticed that Creatine has given me a head ache, but I feel better that our body should have 5g of creatine per day like you said.

    I always worried about looking too bulky, and it’s true like the article notes- creatine has a “bro” aura. I stuck to cardio for years because I was worried that weight training would make me look too masculine- but this is also a myth. I learned that building learn muscle actually made me look smaller because it’s replacing all my fat with muscle. Creatine is definitely something I would try after reading this! Thanks!

    Super excited that I can take creatine an L-creatine simultaneously! I am happy you explained about the liver issue. My own doctor told me not to take it, but if there isn’t evidence that it harms your liver I am suprised she said that. Thanks for the clarification!!

      I’m glad we could clarify Summer! Since everyone is different however, we always recommend following any advice or directions given by your doctor 🙂

    Im excited to try this Creatine. I’ve tried other brands in the past, the taste was horrible and it was something I usually only seen the men drinking. I heard that it causes bloating so that made me nervouse but I’m glad to learn that its minor amount of water retention leading to an additional pound or two. This extra water is intracellular so I shouldn’t look bloated, soft or chubby!

    Is creatine safe for breastfeeding mothers? I’m hoping to build muscle and I am just not seeing results as fast as I used to before breastfeeding. Thank you in advance!
