Can nitric oxide help build your muscles or should I use creatine. Will they both support muscle growth if so witch one helps more and if I can take t?

Can nitric oxide help build your muscles or should I use creatine. Will they both support muscle growth if so witch one helps more and if I can take t?

Wow, this is wrong: Ok, let us start with creatine. There is creatine supplements which give a temporary boost and yet, Maria Sharapova was taking a pill to get rid of creatine as a performance enhancer. This tells you how ridiculous the nonscientific supplement field is. Nitric oxide is broken down. You cant get a supplment for it, except viagra (sildenafil) stops its breakdown. That opens up lungs and is useful in sprints. ...Read more

Is drinking creatine-powdered drinks very helpful in promoting muscle growth? A med school friend said it wasn't worth possible damage to kidneys.

I agree c ur friend.: Even though muscle is made up of creatine, drinking this chemical will not lead to increase muscle growth. I would recommend a diet relatively high in protein, and relatively less carbohydrates and fats. It is the exercise that will build muscle, not the drink. ...Read more

I going to gym from one year or so. I'm 5'9 and weight is 68 now I want to take it further and thinking to take creatine can u tell me do's n don't?

Can work: creatine seems to work by allowing more water storage in the muscles. So if your goals is looking bigger, this is a temporary fix (it goes away when you stop taking the creatine). but if you are looking for long term fitness, there is no "magic" supplement. Before starting any supplement, please see your primary care provider. ...Read more

If you lose a lot of muscle mass your creatinine will drop and you may drink a lot of water but these do not fix the kidney. ...Read more
