supplement, muscle growth
If taken in excessive amounts this product may cause you to test positive for banned substances.
Creatine is not banned as such BUT its safety profile has been questioned in past, and many products containing Creatine MAY contain other contaminants which are banned, or are toxic, EG NANDROLONE
REMEMBER! Creatine supplements MAY contain other banned or unsafe ingredients, and if in doubt, it should not be taken. The only way to prove if Creatine is safe is to get it tested..this is VERY expensive.
