As everyone can tell, I'm not a big fan of heath/diet fads. The idea of creatine magically causing you to build extra muscle makes no sense, and there's still no evidence for it (nor do I think there ever will be), but it turns out that it may have other promising attributes. A Temple University study recently linked creatine supplements to increased metabolic energy.

The study was looking for a molecular basis for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, a condition which may or may not exist (what I've seen seems to indicate that it does, and that it is debilitating), and hopefully sheds more light on that than the release does. And a better understanding of metabolic regulation is a Good Thing too, regardless of immediate commercial applications.
