Creatine is one of the most popular and well researched supplements in the world, and over the last few decades it’s found its way near the top of many people’s ‘essential supplements’ lists. However, many are unaware of creatine basics, such as the science behind it and its studied benefits.

The book went on to become a blockbuster hit, selling more than 30 million copies, and that’s when the misconception started.
