MYTH BUSTING: Creatine is bad for kidney

========================== There is a popular misconception that taking creatine is bad for your kidneys and their argument is that it increases creatinine levels whereas the truth is no study till the date of creatine use in healthy individuals has provided evidence of harm and even slightly increased creatinine levels because of creatine intake does not mean it can be harmful to your liver or kidney If you are taking creatine, only thing is to increase your water intake a bit as its hygroscopic in nature. Creatine supplement within clinical dosage is absolutely safe!!
