The “Bodybuilder’s Secret” to a BIGGER Brain!
Certain supplements have stereotypes.
Omega-3s are good for brain health.
CoQ10 is great for heart health.
Calcium builds strong bones.
You get the picture.
Well, there’s another popular supplement that’s known for its ability to boost your muscles. But if you’re leaving this one to the bodybuilders, you’re missing out on some impressive brain-boosting powers.
You may think of creatine as a bodybuilder’s supplement — and for good reason.
It can help give you bigger, stronger muscles.
But studies show it can boost your physical performance AND mental health as well.
Creatine is formed in your liver, and contains the amino acids arginine, glycine, and methionine.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, so it makes sense that creatine would boost your muscles. But they play a role in the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters, and they help your cells produce ATP (which is your body’s source of energy).
See, your brain uses the majority of your body’s energy, and it uses even more when you’re doing a difficult task.
By using creatine to help boost ATP, you can help give your brain a boost in mental endurance!
On the flip side, a deficiency can lead to lethargy and brain fog.
By boosting levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, creatine can help boost your mood and reduce stress.
Creatine can also help boost your physical performance.
One study showed that athletes who took creatine for nine weeks were able to exercise at a greater intensity, boosted their strength, and delayed exercise fatigue.
And of course, it can help boost muscle mass, too.
One review found that supplementing with creatine increased lean mass and decreased body fat.
You don’t need to megadose on creatine.
You can get it from food sources like red meat, and if you want to supplement with it, 3 grams per day should do the trick.
