Outmuscling Major Depression With Creatine

October 2012
Today's Dietitian;Oct2012, Vol. 14 Issue 10, p82
The article discusses a study by Renshaw and colleagues, which showed that women with major depressive disorder on antidepressants with 5 g of creatine, responded to the illness at twice the rate of women who took the antidepressants alone. The authors suggest that the proenergetic effect of creatine supplementation, including synthesis of phosphocreatine, may have contributed to the response to antidepressants.
