Are protein drinks that contain creatine okay to use for cycling? ie. Mega MRP, (you can buy it at GNC)

This is a reposting of my prior response on this topic:

Sports suppliments cannot be endorsed or recommended by me. Up to 30% are tainted with illicit substances (especially androgenic steroids and ephedrine). These substances can be potentially harmful and can get an athlete who is taking them unawares of their contamination banned from competition if found in a drug screen. Yes, it has happened several times. Ingnorance of the contamination is not an acceptable defence. The athlete is fully responsible for the contents of the suppliments consumed.

Now, specifically, about your question regarding creatine. In university studies, creatinine supplimentations have show to improve short bursts of power such as weight lifting or extremely brief sprints, but there is no benefit for endurance in aerobic activities when tested under double blinded placebo controlled trials. Double blinding, placebo controlled trials removes the bias of user and investigator from the study often referred to as the placebo effect: if the user or investigator believes the substance will work, the substance will have a preceived benefit just from the belief that it will. There have been case reports from deaths from creatine supplimentation in amature athletes.

My advise, steer clear, train well and eat smart. If you want to take a suppliment, take a reputable multivitamin such as Centrum.

Sorry to have to disappoint you, but as a physician I cannot condone athlete performance supplimentation.


Thanks,
