Creatine Supplementation Improves Cognitive Functioning in Vegetarians

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving 128 young adult females, supplementation with creatine (20 g/d) for a period of 5 days was found to improve memory in the vegetarian subjects, and decrease the variability in the responses to a choice reaction-time task in both vegetarian and omnivorous subjects. These results suggest that vegetarian young women may benefit from supplementation with creatine.
