I used creatine 8 or so years ago, had great gains, ( it was the exact same product then & dont tell me its gotten better becasue its effervescent or some .) But I also had a frequent & uncomfortable need to urinate that was NOT just from consuming extra liquid, but from my kidneys being put on overload & doing damage to them with this stuff. I drank plenty of water, took a little less than the recommended dose & was having the urination problem for years after the use of creatine… I also was very short tempered with my family & young kids at the time I took it as it altered my mood.
I also have a friend who underwent a kidney transplant, that if he didnt get, he would have died . the reason for his kidney failure was creatine & he would tell you to stay far away from it as it almost costed him his life. This stuff is absolutely no good-
I tried the cup of raisins before bed and woke up before dawn with an erection reminiscent of days gone by, that lasted for over an hour. Pretty awesome! Though peeing was a long and drawn out affair.
I just had my T checked as I was not getting them any more, neither was I much interested in sex. The test came back with a paltry 305 @ 46yrs old. Just a year ago my erections used to have a bitter sweet ache to them. After going close to zero carb I lost my power, my head hair, got rosacea, limp erections, and my nitric oxide plummeted. I stopped training as it was painful and although I was eager to exercise my body just didn’t seem up to it. ( come to think of it now after reading all these articles, it would seem that lower elasticity of my arteries(low NO) was the reason.)
