Creatine Supplementation and Cognition

2014-07-23 21:08:06 | BioPortfolio


Resistance training as well as creatine supplementation may be beneficial for cognitive function, such as memory and attention. Therefore, the investigators speculate that resistance training combined with creatine supplementation would promote additive benefits on cognitive function in elderly women.

Creatine Timing and Resistance Training Adaptations.

Emerging evidence suggests that the timing of creatine supplementation may be an important regulator of muscle growth and strength. It is unclear whether creatine ingested before or after ...

Creatine Supplementation During Resistance Training for People Recovering From Stroke

Creatine monohydrate is important for sustaining phosphocreatine stores in tissues such as muscle and brain. Phosphocreatine is an important source of energy in these tissues. Supplementat...

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of creatine monohydrate or vitamin D supplementation on strength gains following a traditional resistance training program for adults ...

Effects of Creatine Supplementation on Renal Function

Creatine (CR) supplementation is commonly used by athletes. However, its effects on renal function remain controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of creatine supp...

Effects of High-velocity Resistance Training and Creatine Supplementation in Healthy Aging Males

The age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass (i.e. sarcopenia)and muscle performance (i.e. strength and power), decreases functionality and the ability to perform activities of daily livin...

Creatine supplementation has consistently been demonstrated to augment adaptations in body composition, muscle strength and physical function in a variety of apparently healthy older adults and clinic...

Does creatine supplementation affect renal function in patients with peripheral artery disease? A randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled, clinical trial.

Case studies and reviews have shown that creatine supplementation can affect kidney function.

Short-term creatine supplementation changes protein metabolism signaling in hindlimb suspension.

The effect of a short-term creatine supplementation on hindlimb suspension (HS)-induced muscle atrophy was investigated. Creatine monohydrate (5 g/kg b.w. per day) or placebo, divided in 2 daily doses...

Detecting creatine excreted in the urine of swimming athletes by means of Raman spectroscopy.

High-level sport requires analysis of athletes' metabolic conditions in order to improve the training. Raman spectroscopy can be used to assess urinary composition advantageously when compared to conv...

Efficacy of L-leucine Supplementation Coupled With Resistance Training in Untrained Midlife Women.

This study investigated the effects of leucine supplementation with resistance training (RT) in untrained peri- and postmenopausal women on fat free mass, strength, and select anabolic-related hormone...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An amino acid that occurs in vertebrate tissues and in urine. In muscle tissue, creatine generally occurs as phosphocreatine. Creatine is excreted as CREATININE in the urine.

A transferase that catalyzes formation of PHOSPHOCREATINE from ATP + CREATINE. The reaction stores ATP energy as phosphocreatine. Three cytoplasmic ISOENZYMES have been identified in human tissues: the MM type from SKELETAL MUSCLE, the MB type from myocardial tissue and the BB type from nervous tissue as well as a mitochondrial isoenzyme. Macro-creatine kinase refers to creatine kinase complexed with other serum proteins.

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.

This enzyme catalyzes the last step of CREATINE biosynthesis by catalyzing the METHYLATION of guanidinoacetate to CREATINE.

An isoenzyme of creatine kinase found in the CARDIAC MUSCLE.
