Dietary intake of creatine and risk of medical conditions in U.S. older men and women: Data from the 2017–2018 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey

The considerable shortage of dietary creatine is associated with an increased risk of heart and liver conditions, which calls for public measures that foster diets rich in creatine‐containing foods, and additional research to investigate the role of creatine in age‐related diseases.

The large-scale rate of suboptimal dietary creatine intake found in this cross-sectional study warrants additional research, and calls for immediate public health measures fostering creatine-rich foods in human nutrition are called for.

Relationship between Dietary Creatine and Growth Indicators in Children and Adolescents Aged 2–19 Years: A Cross-Sectional Study

The daily intake of creatine from a regular diet in taller children and adolescents was higher than in shorter peers aged 2–19 years, and the relationship between creatine intake and growth indicators was investigated using data from the 2001–2002 NHANES.



Beyond sports: Efficacy and safety of creatine supplementation in pathological or paraphysiological conditions of brain and muscle

Creatine supplementation has proved effective in increasing muscular and neuropsychological performance in vegetarians or vegans and should, therefore, be recommended especially in those of them who are athletes, heavy‐duty laborers or who undergo intense mental effort.

Changing to a vegetarian diet reduces the body creatine pool in omnivorous women, but appears not to affect carnitine and carnosine homeostasis: a randomised trial.

The body creatine pool declined over a 3-month vegetarian diet in omnivorous women, which was ameliorated when accompanied by low-dose dietary creatine supplementation and none of the carnitine-related compounds in plasma or muscle showed a significant time×group interaction effect.
