πŸ‘‰ Creatine & Hair Loss – Real Scientific TRUTH!


I remember the first time I found out about
creatine. It was super expensive, like 4 oz was $100
or $120 and you know what, I HAD to have it. It was the early 90’s, I didn’t have much
money, I gave it a try and well, it never worked like it claimed it would – at least,
not for me. However, there are numerous studies1 linking
creating to increased strength, muscle and athletic performance, as well as improved
recovery post-workout. And the good news is that creatine is one
of the most studied sports supplements in history and has a safe track record – IF you
use the correct dose and the right type. Which, I’ll tell you about in a minute. Creatine & Hair Loss
However, today’s topic is about creatine and hair loss, which is what a few of my viewers
have asked about. Is there any proof either scientifically,
with clinical studies – or empirically, with real life feedback. Scientific Evidence
There’s only ONE study in 2009, connecting creatine to hair loss.2 It consisted of only
20 rugby players who took 25 grams of creatine daily for 3 weeks. The researchers found that creatine may increase
the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is believed to be ONE of the hormones
behind male pattern baldness in men genetically predisposed to hair loss. And I’ll give you a link to another very
important video about the REAL cause of hair loss, at the end of this one because DHT is
NOT the primary hormone. However, the study did NOT prove that creatine
can actually cause hair loss. Not only did the research not mention hair
loss, it was extremely small with only 20 people and limited to a very narrow time frame,
only 3 weeks. Lastly, the increase in DHT was not large
and was still within the normal range. BOTTOM LINE: No, taking creatine will not
cause hair loss! Genetics aside, hair loss is a hormonal and
inflammatory cause. As stated earlier, I’ll give you the link
to an important video about hair loss and everything you need to know about it. Anecdotal Evidence
If you do a search online, you will see a few guys saying that they noticed hair loss
when they started taking creatine. However, this is all anecdotal and what someone
thinks or feels. It’s not scientific in any way, shape or
form. And these same guys have stated that when
the stopped taking creatine, their hair loss stopped and the hair grew back. BOTTOM LINE: IF you are concerned about hair
loss, then my suggestion is don’t do anything that could potentially turn ON or accelerate
the process and thus, just do NOT take creatine or take a lower dose – 3-5 grams daily. No loading and make sure you cycle it. Then, see how you respond. With that said, I have an entire series of
hair loss videos – causes and solutions. You can watch the first one, which is “How
Baldness & Hormones are connected”. Just scroll down below this video to the description
