“The most effective sports supplement on the market without question is creatine. Creatine was actually discovered in 1835, but its ergogenic effects weren’t discovered until the 1930s. It was put to use by the Russians and East Germans. In the 1960s, they used to give their athletes vials of creatine phosphate; they were actually the first to use supplemental creatine from an athletic perspective.” ~Jerry Brainum
