While we typically don’t think about creatine as a supplement to take as part of a healthy aging routine, its benefits may surprise you. In order to maintain muscle and strength as we age, it is important that we continue to challenge our muscles with a weightlifting routine or similar resistance activity.
One recent study looked at the effects of creatine in combination with resistance training in subjects with an average age in the late 50s.1 The creatine dose was set at 0.1 grams per kilogram of body weight – which would translate into about 6.8 grams in a 150 pound individual.
After 8 weeks of training and supplementation, it was found that the creatine group had greater increases in leg strength compared to the placebo group. The authors concluded that creatine can be a beneficial addition to support healthy aging.
