Can Creatine Make You Smarter?

No doubt you’ve heard of the muscle building benefits of taking creatine. But it may help make you smarter as well. There was a research study published in the British Journal Proceedings of the Royal Society: Bio-Logical Sciences. Where test subjects were given either 5 grams of creatine, or a placebo. They were then quizzed on their on their ability to remember and repeat long sequences of random numbers in reverse order and they were also tested on their IQ.

The results showed that the group taking creatine had a significant measurable boost to brainpower. Creatine plays a role in maintaining energy levels in the brain. Supplementing with creatine may help assist with brain function.
