There is no experimental/scientific evidence that there are performance or training advantages to using either protein shakes or creatine supplements. There is increasing concern that nutritional supplements, in the absence of some deficiency, have the potential to produce negative outcomes in various organ systems with chronic use. My interpretation is that its not okay to use such supplements.
