Is Creatine a Brain Booster?

Discussing the nootropic potential of creatine

I began lifting weights about 10 years ago now. When I first started lifting weights, I was told that creatine was essentially a steroid. That, if I took creatine, I’d look bloated because I would retain water, and that I would start to lose my hair. These are very uncommon potential side-effects of creatine, I later learned.
