Be careful!: Be careful! dietary supplements are not well regulated. Unlike prescription and over the counter drugs, which are regulated by the fda, supplements are not. The ingredient list is not always accurate, and may contain harmful ingredients. Drugs have to have scientific evidence of safety and effectiveness, but even they can have side effects. Supplements do not have such safeguards. ...Read more

Gain muscle mass: A single 5 g (5000 mg) oral dose in healthy adults results in a peak plasma creatine level of approximately 120 mg/l at 1–2 hours post-ingestion.
