Is Creatine Vegan?


Is Creatine Vegan?

For those vegans looking to gain an edge in sport and fitness, you may have come across the popular legal supplement, Creatine. Creatine is only obtained from meat. This leads a vegan, naturally, to question whether or not this supplement is in fact vegan.

The answer to this question is simple, most if not all types of Creatine (monohydrate, HCL, etc) is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, as the raw materials used for the production of the supplement have no animal origin. It is synthetically produced in labs. I have seen some creatine supplements, on the market, extracted from Fish, however, this is not common practice since it is more expensive. There is no harm looking at the nutritional information on the back on the supplement for a label confirming that it is suitable for vegetarians or vegans.

Therefore, most, if not all, nutritional creatine supplements are vegan and the benefits of supplementation of creatine in vegans will be discussed in a separate article.
