Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine is one of the most researched supplements to date. It has been shown to improve athletic performance, as it helps the body to regenerate ATP (the body's "energy currency") more efficiently. 

Some newer studies show that creatine may also provide benefit for conditions with cognitive performance deficits, such as demanding mental tasks, sleep deprivation, traumatic brain injuries, and major depression. This effect on depression appears to be most profound when creatine is used as an adjunct to typical antidepressant therapy.
