Creatine. The most researched fitness supplement on the market.
Creatine is made up of three different amino acids: glycine, arginine, and methionine. The body produces some creatine on its own from the liver, pancreas, and kidneys, but it's also important to get creatine from food sources as well from foods like red meat and seafood. Foods with the highest creatine content include beef, shellfish, pork, tuna, and salmon. Creatine is naturally produced in your body and is also consumed when eating red meat, poultry, and fish.
Creatine works by increasing your body's stores of phosphocreatine, which is used to produce new ATP during high-intensity exercise. What in the world is ATP? ATP is the energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things. (In other words, Creatine produces energy!)
Creatine provides energy to muscle cells, helps muscles contract during high intensity exercise, and helps to build muscle, which is why it's a popular supplement among the fitness community. Creatine helps athletes have energy and overall improve athletic performance.
Can Creatine benefit the brain?
“There is a robust and compelling body of evidence supporting the ergogenic and therapeutic role of creatine supplementation in muscle. Beyond these well-described effects and mechanisms, there is literature to suggest that creatine may also be beneficial to brain health (e.g., cognitive processing, brain function, and recovery from trauma).” Quote from a journal abstract in the National Institute of Health.

So while Creatine is more widely known for it’s use and benefits to athletes, it may also be helpful for brain and cognitive health.
Did you also know that the FDA issued a “GRAS” rating on Creatine Monohydrate in 2020? This means creatine monohydrate is “Generally Recognized as Safe.” An important designation from the FDA.
