In brief: Do not take creatine

Creatine as a supplement has been purported to increase speed and strength in the young athlete.
It has been shown to have only a very modest benefit for short bursts of activity but there is great concern about the potential for kidney damage as a result of its use. There are no long-term studies to show that its use is safe. Student athletes should not use it.
