Obviously not a priority for me.. Im not up on creatine doses but would guess the body building doses are generally larger than what is required for cognitive benefits?

Im thinking 5g per day ...

This guy is not vegan to my knowledge but says in combo with Nback brain exercises he has raised his IQ test scores by 30.

I have vested interest here.. suffering long term fatigue ,brain fog,short term memory loss , just back from an MRI - now I know what it would sound like if you were a cockroach trapped in the guts of an inkjet printer :shock:

I don't use creatine but I do drink a lot of coffee :)

According to this study (press release below from the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease), it turns out "moderate" amount of coffee is 4-5 cups a day -- so I'm right in the sweet spot to ward off Alzheimer's!

I've take creatine daily (5g) for about 3 years and am just as ditzy as I used to be. So I'm not sold on that benefit.

Perhaps I'm a non-responder? :cry:

It seems there are studies to "prove" about anything. Unfortunately, it's hard to be objective, with so many flawed studies around. Sometimes you have to simply observe what works best in your own life.
