Supplements 101 | Creapure® Creatine

 Supplements 101: Creapure® Creatine

Image

Creatine is one of the most beneficial supplements for athletes and health enthusiasts to add to their regimen. In the article Creatine: Exposing the Myths, we discussed the many benefits of creatine as well as debunked the many myths surrounding creatine. Today, we will discuss one of the most pure creatine monohydrates developed, Creapure® Creatine.

Brief Overview

Creatine is a substance found naturally in the human body and all other vertebrate animals. Creatine is essential to the transportation of energy within cells, most specifically muscle. Creatine serves as a reserve fuel for intensive anaerobic exercises (ATP). Athletes consume creatine to raise creatine content in their muscles and improve performance. More research over the past two decades also suggests that creatine is equally as important in aiding many other tissues in the human body, including the brain.

Most people synthesize roughly half of their daily creatine requirement in their own bodies, where the rest of our creatine has to come from food sources. Meat and fish are primarily the only dietary sources of creatine. Thus, vegetarians and those with unbalanced diets tend to have lower levels of creatine.

How Creapure is Made

Creapure® is developed by Alzchem AG in Germany and is one of the only creatine sources in the world developed outside of China. The facility follows strict pharmaceutical and food industry standards including Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP). These two quality standards ensure both the quality of the manufacturing process and the process of identifying and eliminating sources of contamination or process upsets in the production chain. AlzChem follows both GMP and HACCP procedures to make Creapure® creatine monohydrate via a patented process from sarcosine and cyanamide. AlzChem has written protocols for every process step and has a full analysis of every product batch using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) before it is released for shipping, resulting in a product of consistently high purity.

Independent testing has revealed that many Chinese source of creatine may have less purity and/or contain higher amounts of contaminants such as dicyandiamide, dihydrotriazine, or creatinine, a converted form of creatine. Thus the best sources seem to come from the US or Germany.

Image

Safety of Creapure®

AlzChem sponsored a wide range of clinical trials with animals and human subjects to prove the safety of supplementation with Creapure®. In addition to the classic toxicological tests, Creapure® has been investigated in more than 50 clinical trials. As part of this research, people of all ages tested Creapure® in sports and non-sports applications over a period of more than 21 months without experiencing any side-effects.

Not All Creatines are Created Equal

Nearly all studies on creatine supplementation have evaluated pharmacologic grade creatine monohydrate in powder form. Due to the popularity of creatine as a supplement, many companies have created and now market different forms of creatine. These include creatine candy, liquid creatine, creatine ethyl ester (CEE), creatine citrate, effervescent creatine, kre-alkalin® creatine (alkaline creatine), creatinol-O-phosphate, creatine malate, and many other simple creatine salts. The companies that market these forms of creatine claim their superiority to creatine monohydrate, but the truth is that none of these forms of creatine have proven to increase muscle cell uptake of creatine better than creatine monohydrate.

There have been a few published studies that compare the ergogenic value of select types of creatine to that of creatine monohydrate, with all results indicating that yes these creatine forms can improve athletic performance and exercises capacity, but they are at best equal to those effects from the use of creatine.

The Bottom Line

When you are looking to purchase creatine products there are a few things to keep in mind:

1.  First and foremost, with any supplement or food you ingest, quality control standards should be at the top of your list of priorities. This goes from the production of the final product all the way back to the production and handling of the raw materials. The manufacturer of creatine you choose should be tested and audited by 3rd parties to verify safety and purity.

2.  Not all creatines are the same and do not result in the same effects. There are many companies that will market that they have the latest and newest creatine or have creatine from over 5 different sources in their product, but when you breakdown the science and studies, creatine monohydrate always comes on top.  Many of these newer forms of creatine also tend to be much more expensive than creatine monohydrate. 

GI Nutrition has partnered with AlzChem AG to feature Creapure® creatine monohydrate in all products that contain creatine. Ideal Pump began featuring Creapure in January 2012 and a new and improved Ideal Recovery set to launch in Winter 2012 will also feature Creapure® creatine monohydrate.

TAKE THE RIGHT WHEY: ALL-NATURAL, rBGH-FREE IDEAL WHEY

GI Nutrition launches its all-new, safe, and improved whey protein

Image 

Allendale, NJ (February 2012) – Whey protein is proven to be an essential workout supplement because it contains glutamine and Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) that fuel working muscles and stimulate protein synthesis in the body.1 But which whey protein is best to take? Because whey is a milk derivative, it is important to find out the source: the cow itself. Like any mass-produced product, milk is usually processed in large facilities where cows are often given daily injections of various, harmful compounds such as synthetic recombinant bovine growth hormone, or rBGH, used to increase milk production. This compound is not only harmful to cows but also can link to negative affects in humans.2 Before the milk is even curdled and strained to become whey, it is already inorganic and adulterated.
 
The all-new Ideal Whey™ from GI Nutrition is a welcome exception. It is 100% all-natural, rBGH-free, and NSF Certified for Sport.
 
“We are proud of how Ideal Whey has all the good stuff in and the bad out,” says Alex Karsos, co-founder and CEO of GI Nutrition. While many companies compromise the health and safety of their products to profit, GI Nutrition adheres to a strict moral code of integrity and accountability. “We make sure we do things right for our customers – without shortcuts,” Karsos attests.
 
Clinical studies have shown that milk products from rBGH-treated cows increase the risk of breast and colon cancers.3 According to Karsos, most of the whey protein market uses whey protein that is sourced from rBGH-treated cows. “This is practiced because it is the cheapest and most widely available source,” he explains. Ideal Whey, on the other hand, is made from all-American cows that are raised organically and rBGH-free. “Sourcing rBGH-free whey protein may be more logistically-difficult and expensive, but the quality is far superior, better for the cows and therefore, better for consumers.”
 
Whey protein is a valued supplement among serious athletes as it is considered the highest quality protein available and helps to increase strength and reduce recovery time1. With 24g of solid and fast-absorbing protein, Ideal Whey is packed with both essential and non-essential amino acids, including glutamine and BCAAs. Its low-fat and high quality whey protein content allows for easy absorption that is perfect for post workout consumption.
 
Naturally-sweetened with stevia, Ideal Whey contains no artificial colors, flavors, or other harmful chemicals.As an alternative, Stevia is 10-15 times sweeter but without the unhealthy drawbacks of regular table sugar, giving Ideal Whey’s “Crazy Chocolate” flavor a delicious and healthier edge over other protein supplements.
 
And, because GI Nutrition understands whey protein is a key nutrition factor for individuals involved in sports or athletic training, Ideal Whey is NSF Certified for Sport. “Earning this certification goes beyond prestige,” Karsos explains. Being NSF-certified means that Ideal Whey goes through a series of testing to make sure that it conforms to competition regulations— free of adulteration, contaminants and banned substances. “If you are an athlete, coach, parent, or a health conscious individual, rest assured that when you take Ideal Whey, what is on the label is in the product,” he adds. Ideal Whey is a stand out example of safe, trusted, and effective products GI Nutrition is known for.
