  1. Wish I could take the stuff. I suffer from mild PVCs, and when I take creatine they get much worse. People with arrythmia should use caution and contact your doctor before taking it, and to stop if they notice their condition worsening.

    But used to take it in my 20's, works great.

  2. Neruology is slowly knowing that a lot of brain diseases, mild or severe, from braing fog, mild depression, to anxiey and ementia, are caused by a metabolic problem of neurons, they are shown to produce little energy, so, creatine should help to that, and this is why it does'nt help to memory, because memory is confused a lot with attention,and when you are not focused, you tend to forget things, and that's why maybe creatine doesn't help to long term memory but to shor term memory, and this is because you can focus more.

  3. is that book available on amazon with free shipping i am in… as long as i get to be #3. seriously, all joking aside i love your work. i have to watch your videos more than once because it is a lot to absorb but maybe the creatine will help. keep up the great work.

  4. A, i don’t have a car
    B, i was in the military reciting my ssn for years
    C, i just took my creatine
    D, proof i watch your entire videos, sometimes twice because i just started taking creatine

  5. Something important to note is that in longer clinical trials it has been shown that creatine only helps with short-term and not long-term memory. It's affect is because of its increase in ATP as specified in the video. On top of that creatine has been shown to unfortunately decrease NREM sleep which is a crucial time for cleaning out toxins during your sleep from your brain. So it's fine to take if you just want better reaction time and short-term cognitive gains but not long-term gains – especially in such excessive doses as 20g/day.

  6. Question. In muscle building I always understood you shouldn't take creatine if you drank coffee/ caffeine. Does this rule still apply for the brain functions you talk about here? Good video and information delivery.

  7. I truly appreciate your approach and the time you put into these videos so, thank you Nicholas. I always have so many questions for you. Here's one(this is my first post to you): Are you currently working on your own research that could 'fill in' the holes of information/data showing more benefits of creatine? My apologies if this question has been previously answered and I missed it.

  8. I like your approach and analysis much better than Dr. Brad Stanfield's. He is very quick to throw out a supplement if the overall bottom line in one single study shows no effect. He is not tuned into nuance. To use an old saying, he seems to throw the baby out with the bath water. It seems to me he uses negative studies as clickbait, stating something to the effect of, "Stop taking this now!!!", in so many of his video thumbnails. Maybe he means well, but I have my concerns about him and his approach.

  9. At about age 65 I supplemented creatine for over a year as a supposed workout (weight lifting) benefit. Noticed absolutely nothing. I suspect that for most people the effects are psychogenic. I have seen comments by lots of individuals that it caused hair loss. I did not notice anything on that either but since I determined no benefit, I stopped taking the stuff. All of these studies can be manipulated to get what ever result they want. Or that who ever is playing for them want.

  10. Can taking glycine alone be as beneficial? I remember reading somewhere that glycine plays a role as a precursor to creatine, so can someone taking glycine alone get the creatine benefits WITHOUT supplementing creatine in your opinion?

    I chuckled with joy at the no BS intro btw, and I’m hitting the subscribe button because your presentations are so good and highly entertaining even, as long as you’re into science and nutrition

  11. 0:09: 🧠 Creatine supplementation may have benefits for brain performance, including memory.

    2:53: 🔎 A massive error in the data of a meta-analysis on creatine and memory was discovered, which increased the power of the study without any new data points.

    6:37: 🧠 Creatine may help improve brain and nervous system function in older individuals.

    9:49: ✨ Creatine helps in ATP production, acts as an antioxidant, and improves brain cell function.

    12:22: 🧠 The speaker suggests that the effects of creatine on the brain may vary depending on the specific test used, but overall, studies show improvements in brain performance beyond just memory.

    Recap by Tammy AI

  12. Hiii Nicholas could you maybe make a video about different types of scietific studies like meta analysis and others? What they are and how they are created? Or maybe give us some materials where we could learn about them? I dont relly know where i could learn this stuff, and i think i will need it in the future(studying molecular biology)
    Kind regards
