    • What about the negative effects of creatine that I’ve found in stories on the internet?

      It may come as a surprise to you, but not everything you read on the internet is true. That is why we, the makers of Your Encour!™, strive to provide the most up-to-date, fact-based answers to your questions. 


      We can assure you that the active ingredient in Your Encour! is one of the most studied supplements on the planet. The National Institutes of Health, part of the US Government, published a 2017 study that addresses many misconceptions about creatine. 


      Specifically, the article addresses some of the myths around certain anecdotal claims regarding creatine supplementation. The report says: 


      “Unsubstantiated anecdotal claims described in the popular media as well as rare case reports described in the literature without rigorous, systematic causality assessments have been refuted in numerous well-controlled clinical studies showing that creatine supplementation does not increase the incidence of: 


      musculoskeletal injuries [22, 111, 112, 241], 

      dehydration [111, 112, 117, 122, 127, 128, 129, 242], 

      muscle cramping [76, 106, 111, 112, 117], 

      or gastrointestinal upset [22, 111, 112, 241]. 

      Nor has the literature provided any support that creatine promotes 

      renal dysfunction [22, 51, 85, 114, 156, 172, 243, 244, 245, 246, 247, 248] or 

      has long-term detrimental effects [22, 23, 53, 155, 172]


      Rather, as noted above, creatine monohydrate supplementation has been found to reduce the incidence of many of these anecdotally reported side effects. 


      We have several topics we address throughout the FAQs and other sections of our website. You’ll find that the science behind creatine is overwhelmingly positive, but don’t take our word for it. Review the studies and learn for yourself.
