I have tried Creatine and cannot say I noticed any effect, surely if it does enhance your performance it would be banned?
But the supplement that definitely helps me is Iron, I would recommend it to anyone, just the cheap stuff nothing fancy! Any sort of hard training is hard on your red blood cells apparently!
I use creatine in my protein shakes and find it very useful. I workout in the gym quite a bit so I guess I'm not your typical runner in build, but I find that using these supps help maintain muscle mass which can be jeopardised when undertaking long steady cardio work. I guess for out and out runners it'll have little benefit, but for some of us it's very useful.
Creatin is more aimed at body builders than distance runners.
If you want a recovery product, then you would be better off selecting one specific to runners such as REGO.
