    yea creatine is known to boost DHT by a small amount, and DHT is known as a bit of a mood booster. So it may well be affecting your moods slightly....

    Interesting thread.

    On a sort of related note I always felt like I was in a better mood a while back when I was taking testosterone boosters. That being said, if you are doing heaving lifts it is my understanding that your testosterone levels increase. I wonder if it could be attributed to you lifting heavier weight in the gym, and subsequently producing more testosterone.

    Thoughts from anyone smarter than me?

    I really don't think the amount that it has in it will change your mood much. Such a small % it probably is just a placebo.
