Recent work shows that creatine supplementation has the ability to function in a manner similar to antidepressant drugs and can offset negative consequences of stress. Supplemental creatine has been promoted for its positive health effects and is best known for its use by athletes to increase muscle mass. In addition to its role in physical … Continue reading Creatine/similar to antidepressant drugs
Creatine is an inexpensive and safe dietary supplement that has both peripheral and central effects. The benefits afforded to older adults through creatine ingestion are substantial, can improve quality of life, and ultimately may reduce the disease burden associated with sarcopenia and cognitive dysfunction.Amplify’d from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.govAmino Acids. 2011 May;40(5):1349-62.

effects of Creatine for ** muscle and bone growth ** and maintenance, and especially in ** neuroprotection,** are now recognized and the first clinical studies are underway. Novel socio-economically relevant applications of Cr supplementation are emerging, e.g. for senior people, intensive care units and dialysis patients, who are notoriously Cr-depleted. Also, Cr will likely be … Continue reading Creatine Widely Valuable!
