I'm learning a lot as I share information from America's Compounding Center's handout. I think it is wonderful that they send this with the part of the boys' Mito Cocktail they compound for us.
"Creatine Monohydrate is a naturally occurring substance that is stored in the muscles and serves as a source of energy. It is produced in the liver, kidneys and pancreas, but can also be found in meats and fish. Creatine supplements are often taken by body builders and weight lifters to improve athletic performance. The UMDF recommends taking 5g of creatine twice daily. Side effects of creatine supplementation include stomach upset, nausea and muscle cramping."
