Creatine is also a myth and in your head. It simply causes you to retain water. The body can not process the massive amounts of creatine in a supplement.
In a double blind study, creatine had no more effect than a placebo in regards to improving endurance. Studies also found that combining with caffeine, common in supplements, completely obliterates all effects of creatine.
^^ You have obviously never lifted weights before if you don't think protein supplements and creatine help. Either that or you eat about 180 grams of protein from red meat every day.
