In recent years, the subject of depression has drawn considerable attention from researchers and policymakers alike. Researchers have been utilizing creatine and exercise models to develop prediction proposals for possible solutions to depression. The following research paper provides insight into the synthesis of creatine and creatine’s influence on the brain as a chemical balance means to treat depression. Further, creatine adds a layer to diets low on creatine such as a vegetarian diet, providing creatine supplementation as a means to prevent depression. The limitation to effective use of creatine as a possible deterrent to depressive symptoms and a potential course of treatment for depression is the lack of arithmetic confidence in the future of creatine therapy as a viable solution to depression. Future research into the implication of creatine as a potential treatment is necessary in order to be approved as a viable solution. Further, this paper discusses the effects of exercise on the brain and its positive reflection on the solution to depression. Future research must determine whether the brain regions identified in this review are neurobiological markers of depression that might be used as targets for exercise-based depression treatments.
