Creatine for Your Brain

Creatine is primarily known as a sports supplement that helps to increase muscle strength, power, and size, but it has been studied for its potential cognitive benefits as well.

Creatine is a nootropic and can help to improve cognitive function by increasing the availability of phosphocreatine in the brain. Phosphocreatine is a molecule that helps to supply the brain with energy by providing a source of phosphate for the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the primary energy currency of the body.

Some studies have found that creatine supplementation can improve memory, intelligence, and reaction time. Additionally, creatine may have a positive effect on brain function in individuals with neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, depression, and traumatic brain injury.

It is important to note that the majority of the research on creatine as a nootropic has been done in animals and more research is needed in humans to confirm these findings. It is always best to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any supplement regimen.
