Summary A number of beneficial health effects have been ascribed to oral creatine supplementation. Creatine may even improve memory and intelligence. This book emphasizes on the intricate interplay between creatine and creatine kinase function and proper brain function, neurodegenerative disease and/or neuroprotection.
