Nothing Beats Creatine for Boosting Athletic Performance. But It Isn’t Just for Bodybuilders.
Creatine is the most well-studied performance supplements, with thousands of studies backing up its benefits for muscle growth, athletic performance, and recovery*.
Creatine works by supplying muscles with a quick source of energy, especially during short-burst, high-intensity exercise.
When combined with resistance training, creatine supplementation has been shown to increase muscle strength and weightlifting performance .
Creatine is commonly used by performance athletes for these benefits, but don’t be fooled; Its benefits far surpass gym gains.
Because creatine is an essential nutrient, vegans, vegetarians and older adults can benefit from it, too.
Plant-based eaters often miss out on creatine since most sources are found in animal products. Adding creatine to a plant-based diet has been shown to improve working memory and intelligence in vegans and vegetarians .
Additionally, fatigue and muscle loss are unfortunate realities of aging that many older adults struggle with. Creatine has been shown to increase muscle mass and support fatigue resistance in older adults .
Creatine is found in dietary animal sources, but often not at the levels needed to provide performance, muscular, and mental benefits (except perhaps you full-on Carnivores).

Is creatine safe for your kidneys?
This is a common concern with creatine supplementation. If taken in high doses, creatinine levels may be above normal which can be a sign that kidney health is compromised. However, long- and short-term studies have found that creatine doses ≤10g/day don’t impair kidney health in people with healthy kidneys. More long-term research is needed for those with compromised kidney health. If you have a history of kidney issues you should speak with your doctor before supplementing with creatine [https://examine.com/nutrition/does-creatine-cause-kidney-problems/].
Can creatine cause hair loss?
It’s possible, but not likely. One study linked creatine supplementation to an increase in DHT, a hormone linked to hair loss. But this study has not been replicated [https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19741313]. Many other studies have shown that creatine does not affect testosterone levels, a precursor to DHT. To this day, no studies have directly examined creatine’s effects on hair loss.

Will Kion Creatine break my fast?
Creatine stimulates mTor production, which can impact a fast. It may be best to avoid fasting for anti-aging purposes. However, Kion Creatine does not contain any calories or added sugars and has not been shown to spike blood glucose levels [https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12624482]. Therefore, it’s safe to take during fasting for other purposes such as improved cognition or body composition. When combined with Kion Aminos, it’s an incredible source of energy for fasted workouts!
