Study Finds Creatine May Benefit Osteoarthritis

WomanWithWater Research soon to be published in the journal, Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, has shown creatine supplementation to improve physical function, muscle mass and quality of life in post-menopausal women with osteoarthritis.

Study Link - Beneficial Effect of Creatine Supplementation in Knee Osteoarthritis.

Quote from the above study:

[Creatine] supplementation improves physical function, lower limb lean mass and quality of life in postmenopausal women with knee OA undergoing strengthening exercises.

Physical function was assessed by the timed-chair test – a test which measures an individual’s ability to repeatedly rise from a seated position without assistance. Women taking creatine noticed significant improvement in the timed-chair test – both compared to the placebo group and compared to their baseline values at the beginning of the study.

As our population grows older, age-related disability and muscle loss are among the most pressing issues confronted by modern medical science.  Losing the ability to perform simple day-to-day tasks can have devastating physical, psychological, and even financial consequences for the growing elderly population.

As a fundamental nutrient involved in cellular energy production, creatine continues to establish itself as a valuable, low-cost anti-aging strategy for men and women alike.  For this reason, Integrated Supplements is proud to bring you Creapure® – the  highest-quality, highest-purity creatine product available.
