6 PROVEN Benefits of Creatine (Depression, Autoimmune Disease, Weight Loss & More)

Creatine is an incredibly cheap and effective supplement that doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Sure, it’s well known in the field of bodybuilding but there are a lot of reasons that just about everyone should consider taking this over-the-counter supplement.

Here are 6 studied reasons why you may want to use it:

1. Creatine helps build muscle mass and improves body composition (weight loss). By virtue of its impact on lean muscle mass, creatine can help you lose weight when combined with diet and exercise.

2. Creatine makes your bones stronger. Studies have shown that regular use of creatine improves bone density in post-menopausal women.

3. Creatine provides neuroprotective benefits. Daily use of creatine can help treat mild depression and protect the brian from inflammation.

4. Creatine acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. Creatine may be as strong as NSAIDs at reducing inflammation.

5. Creatine positively impacts the innate immune system. Creatine can be used to alter the innate immune system which means it may be effective at treating autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto’s and rheumatoid arthritis.

6. Creatine improves skin health and may act to slow down the aging of the skin. Topical creatine can help reduce wrinkles and oral creatine can help protect the skin from UV damage!

The ideal dose of creatine is 5 grams taken each day with a glass of water. The best formulation to use is creatine monohydrate.

There’s no need to load up with a higher dose as your muscles will reach saturation of creatine within a few weeks of daily use at the 5-gram dose.

If you want to get it into your system faster you can load up with 10-15 grams per day.
