Default Creatine supplement

Is Creatine a useful supplement for ALS? it helps muscle weakness and neurological function

I take it and feel like there's benefit but I think it is more helping with maintaining what I have left as opposed to recovering what I've lost.

I take 5 grams 1X daily and an extra 5 grams on the days I work out.

People say to drink lots of water to avoid stomach discomfort but it's never a bad idea to properly hydrate...

Here's a link as to what it actually does...
