Creatine is the one legal supplement to rule them all. At least if you’re looking to become stronger and build more muscle mass.

The supplement has been studied for decades by now, in thousands of trials. And the positive effects are very well documented, along with its safety for human consumption. Creatine improves strength, strength endurance, muscle growth and aids in recovery.

It’s also dirt cheap, compared to most other supplements.

But will it also make you smarter?

That’s the subject for today’s episode of the Strength Log, where we’ll look at a new study on creatine’s effect on intelligence and working memory.

Listen to the episode to hear us break down this study and to get our practical takeaways.
