    Creatine supplements can actually improve your anaerobic performance (esp. if supplement is taken with a hefty doze of sugar right after the workout). All body builders know this.

    However, I'm not sure how it affects endurance (i.e. aerobic) performance if at all.

    Do you know why your creatine is low? Is there a medical reason for it?

    I don't mean to be rude but it owuld really help if you slowed down and typed out your post a little more clearly. I'm going to assume that you mean you are a vegitarian. That makes it hard to get creatine in your diet. Fish has a lot of creatine so if your eating tuna that will help but i would say you might want to buy a suppliment.

    I bought a $20 tub of micronized creatine. Higher power brand is bodybuilding.com's in house brand and is good cheap creatine. Generally you want to buy creatine from a german supply not an asian supplier.

    I would normally recommend to everyone not to ever do the "loading" and "maintence" phases of creatine usage. It does no good to someone who is not deficient in creatine but i supose that might actually help you out. I personally find creatine helps me a lot and i only ever take it directly before and after working out.
