Is there a minimum age for the use of creatine? We have a 12 year old athlete we train

Answer:

Quick answer is that there is no known health reason not to use creatine at age 12yrs in healthy persons, but there is the CYA reason (cover your ass) and therefore we stick with the after puberty recommendation that The International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) supports, which is included in our position statement on page 13-14 in the PDSRG on CreatineMonohydrate CreatineMonohydrate. I also attached (and below) the perfect supplement program for a competitive 12yr old athlete. Have a great day and stay in touch!
