Did You Know? Creatine

Did You Know? Creatine

Share This Post

You may have heard of creatine before, probably for its ability to enhance athletic performance. But, did you know that creatine can also help improve mental performance, fertility, digestion, hearing, and your skin?

We speak a lot about how MTHFR mutations reduce your ability to effectively methylate things within your body, and naturally occurring creatine synthesis depends on methylation.

Supplementing with creatine can significantly reduce the demand for methylation in the body (by almost up to %50), freeing up methyls for use in other biochemical systems in the body.

Creatine supplementation is a highly effective strategy to combat methylation related health problems.
