N---------- I can't delete the entire answer. Okay. So cretin. It works best for high intensity repetitive -short duration work outs like jumping, lift, etc. Some studies show two things: using a loading does (20g/day divided 4 times per day for 5-7 day_ followed by 5-10 g/ day prior to the short duration/high intensity exercise for maintenance may help you own body use it more efficiently and fill your bodies creatine storage's. And secondly, some people are non responders and only their body naturally makes and it doesn't help at all to take extra cretin. Weight gain is a side effect and cold be possible alongside or instead of muscle building, every person is different. its the best/healthiest muscle building option. However it does have risks of kidney injuries if you take too much too long. so if you aren't seeing the results you want after a month or so I'd stop!

Does six star professional strength creatine work?

Creatine powder does, but not creatine pills. Creatine powder works really well because you mix it with water and that water goes into your bloodstream, forcing the creatine into your muscles, opening up your musles and all that water weight going in to it. On the other hand, creatine pills doesen't work that well at all because it's harder and much longer to digest, and it's more dense.The reason it's a little more expensive than creatine powder because it's harder to make.

No. Creatine is used to gain more energy for exercise. The creatine is activated just when muscular work is performed. If not used, creatine is just excreted out of body with urine as creatinine. If not used out of the range Creatine should not harm but about use of it still an exercise physiologist should be consulted. There are many other ways to gain more energy through totally harmless substances. If you do take Creatine, make sure you double your intake of water.
