Benefits of Creatine

Posted on June 11, 2014 at 2:44 PM
Creatine is a naturally occurring organic acid, athletes use it to improve performance and build muscle strength. However, new research shows that it has important anti-aging effects on the body. As we age the mitochondria which converts food into energy, becomes less efficient or dysfunctional. This causes lipofuscins an aging pigment to build up on the internal organs. This then leads to oxidative stress, decreased energy, and cell death. They are now finding that creatine has slowed the progression of lipofuscins (recognized marker of aging) in the brains of aging mice. Creatine has been shown to protect against the following conditions:
  • Cognitive decline
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Insulin sensitivity
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Huntington's disease (neurodegeneration disorder that involves damage to motor control centers in the brain)
  • ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)
  • Sarcopenia (muscle wasting)
The recommended dose for older individuals is 5 to 20 grams a day. 
The key information here is that creatine helps the body transfer energy and provide energy to tissues that have high energy demands such as the brain, heart, and muscles.
