Creatine Improves Muscle Strength in Patients With Fibromyalgia

A new article published by Reuters reports the findings of a study that “Creatine, a supplement favored by bodybuilders, modestly boosted muscle strength in patients with fibromyalgia.” Although creatine improved muscle weakness, it did not improve other general symptoms of the disorder, “such as chronic pain, fatigue, memory loss, depression, anxiety and sleeplessness.” Past studies have shown that brain and muscle tissues in fibromyalgia patients have reduced levels of creatine, and this study identifies a potential new approach to treatment.
