Anyone interested in performance. Those that eat a lot of meat don't need it.
According to http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplemen ... e=CREATINE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; :
"There is some science supporting the use of creatine in improving the athletic performance of young, healthy people during brief high-intensity activity such as sprinting. But older adults don’t seem to benefit."

Good find Josh. We have discussed this before and noticed that there were responders and non-responders. I just assumed that meat intake was the variable. Once you have enough in your system, there is no benefit in getting more. It would be interesting if an older vegetarian tried it. I wonder if there would be a benefit.

It's a confusing subject. There are quite a few sources that say the opposite. i.e. that Creatine is recommended especially for older age. See, for exmaple, http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/20 ... 213425.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; . Go figure.

I think the answer is in the first link where it said:"Studies to date have included small numbers of people (all have involved fewer than 40 participants), and it is not possible to draw firm conclusions from such small numbers." You just have to try it and if you like the results, keep with it.
