my brother took creatine to bulk up and his doctor told him to stop cause his liver. he also asked 3 trainers and all they all said creatine is bad for your liver. they said its worse for it then alcohol. protien is the same. its an unnatural amount of it in your body and needs to be filtered
Unnatural amounts? It isn't unnatural amounts, the reason to take protein shakes is to get enough protein for you diet. If you take a multi-vitamin, is that bad for you cause you are takin unnatural amounts? That makes no sense to me, there is nothing wrong with protein powders except some protein powders have a lot of suger, but that is about it. If you don't take a protein powder, you are gonna have a hard time getting the amount of protein to pack on serouis muscle, without it, you will have to be eating every second of the day. There are different views on creatine, I know some people who don't take it cause they heard it is bad for you liver. But my view on it, is we already have creatine in our body, and we get it in our meats, so why doesn't it affect your liver if it is in meats, it is still passing through the liver. Honestly I think there is nothing wrong with creatine, but to be safe I would def. cycle off of it every 2 months, then stop for 2 months.
