Notes for this study:
When lesser intensity chemotherapies were controlled for, creatine supplementation improved Phase Angle measurements (an indicator of Body Cell Mass and vitality). Statistically insignificant results when chemotherapy intensity was not controlled for.

Loading phase of 20g daily (four doses) for 5 days, reduced to 5g daily (two doses) for the remainder of the trial.

No effects on quality of life and subjective well-being of colorectal cancer patients. No beneficial effects noted on muscle function or mass in this population either.
