Creatine in health and disease

Creatine and phosphagens play a critical role in cellular metabolism, especially during metabolically stressed states, by providing energy through the creatine kinase. Some scientific studies report that creatine supplementation increases muscle creatine, which results in exercise capacity and training adaptation improvement. Therefore, it can be reasonably suggested that based on current evidence such supplementation can provide better cellular energy and support general health and well-being. Article published in Nutrients journal looked into role of creatine in aging populations, effect on cognitive function and heart disease. Although additional research is needed, authors concluded that creatinine supplementation may support cognitive function, heart metabolism and health, may reduce immobilization-related muscle atrophy and have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating effects.
