I've never taken taken creatine because of the water retention and bloating effects, but I think I'll take it up after reading this article, which says that a regime of six half-gram doses per day will give similar strength and endurance gains to 20g a day, but without the associated weight gain. What do you guys think of that?

Creatine is probably one of the most widely studied supplements out there. While there's concern with kidney damage (that study was done on patients with renal failure, go figure) and muscle strains (more than likely secondary to dehydration), it's by far one of the safest supplements to take, and most effective.

If your are going to take it, make sure your taking in a LOT of water a day. Think 4 litres.

Excellent link.

May be especially beneficial to athletes involved in high-intensity activities particularly where interval training and strength training are involved i.e. anaerobic activities

For this reason alone I'm surprised more martial artists aren't taking it. I think because most of the early research involved maximal strength output (re: lifting weights), people still think of it as a "bodybuilding" supplemnt, versus an "athletic" supplement.
