Dr Paul Saladino’s email letter this week argues for Creatine – and for getting it naturally. Because, what else is in natural food that we don’t know about yet? BTW, the links in the letter do work…

—————————————————————–

What is up truthseeker,

What if I told you that there is a very special nutrient that is only found in meat and organs…

And that this nutrient makes vegetarians smarter and it makes the elderly smarter…

Pretty cool, no?

In case you hadn’t guessed, I’m talking about creatine, and despite what many of you might think, it is not just for gym bros.

In this randomized double blind placebo controlled trial, vegetarian females were given creatine and their memory improved… 

And there have been trials with the elderly, showing that giving them creatine improves cognition.

Creatine is perhaps one of the most studied nutrients of all time for performance enhancement in humans and there is incredible data that suggests it improves muscle power, strength and cognitive abilities.

Your body can make creatine, but it only makes a small amount. Around 1g per day…

This is FAR below the optimal amount for humans, CLEARLY indicating a NECESSITY for meat in the human diet.

The optimal amount of creatine to fully saturate your muscles is about 5 grams per day for a 170 pound male, which is a little more than two pounds of meat per day…

Or 3 grams of creatine for an average 115 pound female, which is a little more than a pound of meat per day.

I think this is a really clear indication of the optimal amount of meat for humans.

What happens if you don’t get enough meat and your creatine levels drop?

Your body won’t be able to function properly due to an absence of energy movement…

Your thinking won’t be as clear, your strength will be worse, your mood, energy, and overall happiness will probably be lower…

So it’s pretty safe to say that CREATINE is INCREDIBLY important!

Should you supplement? Why do such a thing when you can get your creatine and MANY other critical nutrients for humans from meat and organs?

Supplementing with any nutrient (or protein powder) in place of REAL FOOD is a dangerous game and will inevitably leave important nutrients out of your diet.

Furthermore, there must be many nutrients that we don’t even know about in real food that are left out with this approach…

Eat real food, and be sure to eat ENOUGH meat and organs if you want to thrive. A good rule of thumb to follow is for every 100lbs you weigh, aim for at least 1lb to a little over 1lb of meat per day…

Welcome to the remembering 🏹
