    Creatine Boosts Brainpower

    Saw this article on slashdot today. It talks about how Creatine has been shown to effect your brain power. I thought some people would find it interesting.

    yeah, another benefit... but it didn't say how much the capsules contained did it?

    Nope, but since it was a controlled experiment I would assume they used the usual dosage that you'd find on a creatine label.

    True. They might have been deficient to start with, while meat eaters may have a healthy amount. Cant say if a meat-eater would benefit from extra creatine...
