Sleep deprived? Study finds creatine supplements may improve cognitive performance

  • Creatine is a common sports supplement that is believed to increase the amount of energy muscle cells generate during exercise.
  • Some research suggests it may have positive effects on aspects of brain health.
  • A new study concludes that a high dose of creatine increases cognitive ability in sleep-deprived participants.

A recent paper published in the journal Scientific ReportsTrusted Source finds that just one large dose of creatine supplements may improve cognitive performance in people who are acutely sleep-deprived.

Experts hope that, in the future, creatine-based interventions could help people who need to perform at a high level despite insufficient sleep, like healthcare professionals, firefighters, and night-shift workers.

However, much more research is needed before we rush out and bulk-buy creatine.

  1. I thought you did a great job here. The language is excellent and the picture is tasteful, but you come across as nervous about what you might say next. If you preserve this walk, I have no doubt that I will return more often.
