Considering Creatine Supplementation? Get The Insider Scoop Today: with Dr. Scott Forbes
Creatine is one of the most studied sports supplements of all time, yet there's still a lot of confusion about this powerful white powder. (The legal one!)
I want to change that.
It's a simple white powder, proven to have some powerful health benefits.
There's a lot of new and established research around creatine, and I wanted to make sure you were up to date and "in the know", so I invited expert Dr. Scott Forbes onto the podcast to answer some important questions and simplify creatine biology making it accessible to all listeners.
