Yeah, I know about that HC. But the fact remains that I've found that my legs don't tire out as quickly on my bike rides than when I don't do the creatine. But I'm not recreational riding either. I'm pushing it at high cadence, big gears. I've gone from days without to days with, back and forth enough times to prove to myself that it's helped me personally. Maybe it doesn't work for everybody, or the research states otherwise, but I think it's more than placebo for me.
Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
