Creatine has a bad reputation, but fundamentally it's a nitrogenous organic acid that occurs naturally in your body. It leads to greater ATP creation in the body, which translates into greater amounts of energy available under strain. For example, an athlete who could squeeze out 5 reps on a given weight without creatine could feasibly expect to get 6 or 7 reps out of the same weight. As long as other things are optimised, it would lead to extra size and strength gains.
Who Should Take it?
Anyone looking to perform better at a sport in which high levels of exertion are required, or anyone aiming to gain muscle mass and strength. The drawback to creatine is that it makes your cells retain water, which means you can gain in size without functionally gaining in strength. Personally, I've found the marginal gains I’ve experienced from creatine haven't been worth the effort (and money), but that's just a personal preference.
