Creatine is another amino acid. This is the one that the body will use to make protein.
Many people take creatine because it is a very popular bodybuilding supplement, promoting muscle growth and at the same time enhancing your brain.
When you consume creatine, it will enter your brain.
There it binds with phosphate and creates a molecule which your brain will use to feed or fuel its cells.
A lot more energy is available for your brain cells which means your reasoning skills and short-term memory are going to get a real boost, which is particularly beneficial for vegetarians and people who are highly stressed.
From studies, it is found that it is quite safe for people to take in around 5 grams of creatine each day without experiencing any negative effects.
However, if you do take in larger doses which can be effective as well, there is no research yet on the long-term safety.
