Episode 019: Creatine: Is it Safe for Women, Teens, and Older Adults?


Protein powders, supplements, pre-workouts, and the like are becoming very mainstream. I have teenage boys coming into my office trying to reach their goals and optimize their performance in the gym by using these products. On the other end of the spectrum, I see men and women in the older generation experiencing muscle atrophy and considering supplementation for it. 



Many of these seem to be relevant cases for prescribing creatine. However, I always want to make sure I’m providing the best and safest recommendations to my clients.
