<< I recently begun taking Creatine and, according to the instructions, I
started with a "loading" phase. Four tablespoons per day vs. 1
tablespoon per day with the latter being the maintanence dosage. I am
trying the substance to see if it increases my performance in the
martial arts.

A friend of mine, who is a body builder and who ingests Creatine, told
me to skip the loading phase and take only the maintenance dosage
because after a month the Creatine level would be the same with either

Can someone comment on this? I haven't read the book talked about in
a few months past, I have only read some online literature which didn't
skipping the loading phase.

For us less informed individuals, please tell us what creatine is, what it
does, and how to get some (and cost too). I know it must be a nootropic, but
what kind? Thanks. Shawn M. Johnson
