Cognitine improves performance by increasing muscle creatine levels. Creatine is used by tissues with high metabolic demands, such as brain and muscle, to create energy. Traditional creatine mononhydrate is very unstable in the acidic environment of the stomach, quickly cycling to creatinine, a waste product of muscle metabolism.
The creatine monohydrate in Cognitine has been stabilized in a patented process to withstand acid and minimize conversion to creatinine. This allows for lower dosing and maximizes effectiveness. Creatine monohydrate is traditionally used by athletes and weight lifters to build muscle but the importance of creatine is highlighted by the fact that people who can't transport creatine in the body end up with serious mental and physical delays.
Research is evolving to show other benefits of creatine: (1) supplemental creatine has been shown to increase levels of creatine in the brain; (2) children and adolescents suffering from traumatic brain injuries, such as concussions, have less headaches, dizziness and fatigue with creatine supplementation; (3) vegetarians, who have lower tissue stores of creatine, experience improved memory with supplemental creatine; (4) patients with neuromuscular disorders may have improved function with creatine; (5) creatine, in combination with CoQ10, may help with conditions associated with mitochondrial dysfunction.
