Creatine is among the most well-researched and effective supplements. It can help with exercise performance by rapidly producing energy during intense activity. Limited research suggests that Creatine may also provide cognitive benefits.
Creatine is a molecule that is produced in the body from amino acids. It’s primarily made in the liver and to a lesser extent in the kidneys and pancreas. It stores high-energy phosphate groups in the form of phosphocreatine which are donated to ADP, regenerating it to ATP, the primary energy carrier in the body. This role in energy production is particularly relevant under conditions of high energy demand such as intense physical or mental activity.
The primary benefit of creatine is an improvement in strength and power output during resistance exercise. For this purpose, creatine is well-researched, and the effects are quite notable for a supplement. When used in conjunction with resistance exercise, creatine may modestly increase lean muscle mass. It has also been tested for anaerobic running capacity in many studies, the results of which are mixed but generally suggest a small improvement in performance.
While creatine has been researched far less for cognitive performance than physical performance, it may have benefits in some contexts. A reduction in mental fatigue has been observed in various scenarios such as demanding mental activity, sleep deprivation, and traumatic brain injury. Creatine may improve working memory, though likely only for those with below-average creatinine levels such as vegetarians and the elderly.
Recommended use or purpose:
Increases lean muscle mass when used in conjunction with a resistance training regimen. Improves strength and performance in repetitive bouts of brief, highly-intense physical activity.
