I love it :thumbup:

Nobody can honestly say there are no long term effects as it hasn't been tested in the long term. But, none have been shown, so why worry right?

Drink tons of water, enjoy the benefits. If you're worried there might be side effects don't mess with it ya know. None of us have the right to tell you whether to take something or not :)

here is a pretty good link for info > http://www.absolute-creatine.com/

A ucla med study (sorry i can't cite it directly) basically said 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off is ideal for creatine use... and no loading is necessary... as with many issues like this, there is considerable debate about "Loading" but the general consensus says no need to load.

Loading is a good way to waste money and pee alot :)
