What is creatine?

Creatine is a molecule found in the body that helps with energy production. It is most commonly found in meat and fish, but can also be found in some dairy products. Creatine is not a vitamin and does not contain any minerals.

Can creatine cause hair loss?

Creatine is a popular sports supplement that is often promoted as a way to increase strength and performance. However, some people believe that creatine can also cause hair loss.

There is limited research on the topic of creatine and hair loss, but it appears that the supplement may be able to lead to hair loss in people who are genetically predisposed to it. Additionally, there is some evidence that suggests taking high doses of creatine may be harmful for hair growth.

So, while there is no clear answer as to whether or not creatine can cause hair loss, it seems prudent for people who are concerned about the potential side effect to speak with their doctor before taking the supplement.

To my knowledge, creatine doesn't cause any hair loss. Creatine does a great job of providing energy during workout and helps in gaining mass and muscles. Hair loss depends upon the genetics of the individual, if his genetics is programmed for hair loss then it would happen no matter what, with or without creatine.
