    You can get it from Holland and Barret. It’s pretty safe to take, but be warned you must work out whilst taking it or you will appear heavily pregnant.

    Try Soya Protein instead, Creatine is quite expensive and tastes like the devils pi*s. Holland and Barret do loadsa different flavours, and they dont taste too bad, it really helped me gain muscle on my upper body.

    You want whey protein not that horrible casein or soya stuff!!!

    As far as creatine goes... some studies have raised health issues surrounding it... whilst others say that it is completely safe...

    Creatine will give you an amazing pump, an increase in strength and better recovery, however, if you want to make any gains you must be consuming about 100grams of protein a day... at least.

    Its not a magic pill, the gains you make will be down 95% down to your diet and your programme.

    I remember somebody posting a similar question recently. Try and search for that thread as you may find it useful.

    Search on google for some bodybuilding forums, the men's health one is especially good. The people on there know what they are talking about and you will be able to find out all you need to know just by searching that forum.

    Much of the advice (not all) given here on such matters is uninformed crap (sorry, but it's true).

    Try getting a proper routine and diet, and theres no need for creatine.

    Post up your current diet/training regime?

    One of my mates takes creatine are aspiring to be pro-footballers, I don't really see the point unless your going to be a professional sportsperson. A healthy diet and getting down the gym will be sufficient if your only doing it for well-being etc.

    The funny thing is, 90% of the people who take creatine will have an awful diet/training programme. And as a footballer there is absolutely no need for taking it really..
