Study Finds Creatine May Benefit Osteoarthritis
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.
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.
