Why don’t Drs suggest older adults to take creatine supplements? Both my parents are over 75 and have had health problems. Would supplementing with creatine improve their overall health?
Creatine is an inexpensive and safe dietary supplement that has both peripheral and central effects. The benefits afforded to older adults through creatine ingestion are substantial, can improve quality of life, and ultimately may reduce the disease burden associated with sarcopenia and cognitive dysfunction.
