“Creatine is a substance that is naturally occurring in muscles. So, when you’re doing intense exercise for example, you’re lifting weights or doing sprints, it’s Creatine that is providing energy to your muscles.” (02:46) (Dr. Brian)
“What a lot of people don’t realize is Creatine is also in your brain. So, Creatine is good for brain health.” (03:43) (Dr. Brian)
“Creatine also – and this may be of real interest to you – can increase hormones, specifically growth hormone.” (05:39) (Dr. Brian)
“So it’s pretty clear, I think we can establish, that Creatine does amazing things for muscles, not only in strength but also in their growth and bulking too.” (09:18) (Dr. Brian)
“Let’s talk about side effects. There is no evidence that Creatine harms the liver or harms the kidneys in healthy people who take normal healthy doses.” (15:01) (Dr. Brian)
“If you are losing your hair and you’re taking Creatine, it may not be a bad idea to talk to your doctor and ask to get a simple blood test to see what your DHT level is. DHT stands for Dihydrotestosterone.” (17:41) (Dr. Brian)
