I got a news alert from Google news earlier today so i thought i’d write and see what people think! I would go on and on about what creatine is, but the whole site is full of creatine information and articles so i’ll get straight to the point!
“The evidence from the studies “shows that short- and medium-term creatine treatment improves muscle strength in people with muscular dystrophies and is well-tolerated,” said lead reviwer Dr. Rudolf Kley of Ruhr University Cochum in Germany.
The review appears in the latest issue of The Cochrane Library, a publication of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international organization that evaluates medical research. Systematic reviews draw evidence-based conclusions about medical practice after considering both the content and quality of existing medical trials on a topic.
Although creatine has been widely studied as a performance enhancer, itâ€™s still not clear if the supplement makes a difference, according to Roger Fielding, Ph.D., of Tufts University, who has also recently written a review of creatine treatments for neuromuscular diseases.”
Musclular disyrophies is genetic group of more than 30 genetic and hereditary muscle diseases. It’s characterized by skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins, and death of muscle cells and tissue. Althought i know creatine does help build muscle tissues, i don’t know too much about muscular dystrophies, so i cannot really say my true thoughts.
If you have any comments, please feel free to post.
