Abstract:

Creatine, a popular supplement, improves muscle-building capability by increasing phosphocreatine in the muscles, which leads to increased ATP production and energy output during exercise and helps build more muscle mass. (Nissen, 2003) There is not a lot of research on the cognitive effects of creatine in college-age students (18 - 25 years old). Which is why it is important to find how creatine supplementation can potentially help students in college because it can help boost cognitive performance in the classroom. To gather articles for this review, article databases Esbco, Jstor, and search engine google scholar were searched with keywords "creatine", "young adults", and "cognitive benefits". Articles were selected based on the following criteria: published since 1995 and peer reviewed. Previous research has shown that taking creatine may improve brain function. Although there is conflicting evidence of any effect on brain function. It is possible that creatine may provide more benefits but more research needs to be done.
