Creatine as a supplement to athletic training has been available for a number of years. Although there are proven benefits in short-term exercise, recent questions have arisen regarding side effects and safety. Many scientific studies have addressed it efficacy in certain athletic events but no deleterious effects have been proven as of yet. Still, many physicians who work closely with athletes are suggesting caution before recommending its use.
