Side effects? Yes getting bigger. lol
Just make sure you drink your gallon of water a day. It is as safe as eating a jar of Herring a day.
1 jar of pickled Herring has 5g's of creatine in it. Thats part of why people gain weight around X-Mass that eat it.
The powder is cheeper and more user friendly than buying Herring.
