    isn't the loading phase unnecessary?

    a) loading is a marketing scheme to make you have to buy more creatine. You don't need to.

    b) you need to be drinking more water while on creatine, chances are its just the increased water intake

    c) creatinine is a biproduct of creatine and is flushed out with more urination. pissing more is a good thing for keeping creatinine out of your kidneys
