Creatine is converted to ATP witch without it you wouldn't have the energy to walk across the room, it's basically energy for the muscles, not glucose, don't confuse the 2
Steroids however help your body convert more creatine into ATP,
that's why you can train longer and harder.
But most people don't take there creatine properly anyways, so
I say save your money for the GOODS!

Creatine is NOT a steroid !! Tell your friend to take his head out of his butt and do some research.
Look throught this forum and you will find a detailed post about Creatine which explains how it works and what it is.

Creatine is proteinaceous. Its a strand of amino acids, shorter than a protein. A peptide if you will. Its not an active hormone at all, its more of a catalyst. In the body creatine picks up a phosphate ion creating Phosphocreatine. This is a natural product made in the body and found in some foods, such as red meat. As was said. After the creation of energy and ATP molecule will split into ADP+phosphorous+energy. ADP is mostly useless, its then converted to AMP and cAMP in a cell, where it can be used as a secondary messenger. Phosphocreatine can chemically donate its phosphorous ion to ADP in a certain rate to regenerate lost ATP.
