The Best Way to Boost Your Brain Power!
Your body produces creatine naturally, but it can only generate about two to three grams each day. While this may be sufficient for some people, studies show that you need at least five grams a day to see the greatest benefit.
You can get more creatine in your body by eating grass-fed beef. But a pound of raw steak has less than one gram. And if you’re a vegetarian, you’re likely not getting any added creatine from your diet. You can easily order a creatine supplement online. Just be sure to look for a brand with no artificial sweeteners or additives. The best choice is 100 percent creatine monohydrate powder.
It’s a little gritty, but completely flavorless and odorless so you can easily add it to plain water. It’s also perfectly safe.
A study out of Baylor University, published in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, looked at creatine use in athletes for 21 months. The researchers say taking 5-10 grams of creatine long-term had no negative health effects. The Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition also conducted a safety review of creatine. Their doctors concluded: "There is no scientific evidence that the short- or long-term use of creatine monohydrate has any detrimental effects." If you plan on taking creatine, the key is to cycle it.
This is important to remember. You don’t want to take it every day continuously, or your body will stop producing it naturally. Most nutritionists and sports physicians suggest taking a "loading" dose of about 10 grams daily for about 10 days.
Then take a "maintenance" dose of about 5 grams daily for up to two months. Take a few weeks or a month off and then repeat the cycle. Not only has creatine been shown to dramatically improve memory and intelligence, it can also help you increase strength, energy and muscle mass - even without working out. It’s no surprise that athletes swear by it, but they may be surprised that it’s making them smarter.
