Creatine for a 16 year old
 
Is it safe for a 16 year old to take creatine?

Don't get hung up on supplements just yet. At 16 you have enough testosterone flowing through your veins to take you a long way. Eat big, lift big, get big.

Listen to IW!


Some say it's okay but the majority of sources suggest not using supplements of that nature until after the body has had time to fully develop 18y/o (??). Even though creatine and most other supplements are found to a degree in foods they're not as concentrated as they are in powder/pill form, so although some put that argument/reasoning forward, it's not the best way to think about it.

Perfectly safe, but a waste of money.

Yes it is safe. Do you really need it though? Most likely not.

It is safe at the proper recommended dose. If you are going to get some, I personally recommend a Creapure Micornized Creatine Monohydrate to start with. Optimum nutrition and Dymatize are both good brands, but not the only choices out there.

Eat, sleep, grow. No need for anything fancy at all yet. :biglifter:
