Creatine Ethyl Ester:
Is Creatine monohydrate with an ester attached. Esters are organic compounds that are formed by esterification - the reaction of carboxylic acid and alcohols. One of the drawbacks of regular Creatine monohydrate is its poor absorption - and its effectiveness is dependent upon the cells ability to absorb it. The poor absorption rate of regular Creatine monohydrate requires the Creatine user to ingest large dosages of Creatine to achieve desired effect.
Because Creatine draws water to the cell, and because a large portion of ingested Creatine monohydrate is not absorbed, unabsorbed Creatine will sit outside of the target cell and attract water to it, this will result in the "Creatine bloat." Creatine monohydrate utilizes lipids to permeate the cell wall and enter the cell but unfortunately it is semi-lipophilic. This means that it inefficiently uses fat as a transport mechanism. Creatine ethyl ester is Creatine monohydrate with an ester attached. The esterification of substances will increase their lipophilic abilities, and thus esterified Creatine will use fat more efficiently to permeate the cell wall and exert its effects upon cellular function than its un-esterified Creatine monohydrate counterpart.
This means, simply, that not only will dosage requirements be lower, but also the absorption of esterified Creatine will be increased and the infamous "Creatine bloat" will be eliminated!
There is a specific reason why Creatine has been bound to the AKG molecule. Since AKG is a Krebs cycle intermediate it can easily enter muscle cells, bringing with it more Creatine directly into targeted cells (i.e., your muscles). The Krebs cycle is a series of chemical reactions that take place in living cells and is involved in oxidative metabolism (energy production). The Krebs cycle occurs in the mitochondria of cells. And guess what? More mitochondria are found in cells that expend a significant amount of energy, like muscle cells. Therefore, AKG acts as a transporter of Creatine to bring more Creatine into the targeted muscle cells. As already explained, Creatine-AKG transports more Creatine directly into muscle cells and this results in a higher muscular Creatine concentration. With a higher Creatine concentration in the muscle, strength and power performance is significantly enhanced.
This means more reps and heavier weights in the gym, which can quickly translate into greater muscle growth. Also, with more Creatine being shuttled directly into muscle cells, more water is pulled inside cells eliminating the Creatine bloat. This is a benefit because it can trigger an immediate anabolic response, whereby muscle cells quickly expand due to the influx of water (cell volumization), and protein synthesis is stimulated (new muscle fiber growth) to fill up the intracellular space. This is a fascinating process and the key to Creatine-AKG's powerful muscle building effects. Another benefit of Creatine-AKG is that it doesn't cause transporter downgrade. Regular Creatine requires a Creatine transporter protein (CreaT) for its uptake into muscle cells. Some research has shown that chronic supplementation with regular Creatine can cause Creatine transporter downgrade. This means Creatine cannot efficiently be taken up by the muscle cell. However, since Creatine-AKG uses AKG as a transporter, Creatine transporter downgrade is a non-issue.
Is the fastest absorbed form of Creatine. Creatine pyruvate is not a blend but a molecule that combines both Creatine monohydrate and pyruvic acid. Creatine regenerates the primary energy immediately available to muscles involved in short, intense contractions. Creatine also serves as a buffer, delaying the point at which lactic acid causes muscle fatigue and discomfort. Increasing Creatine energizes muscle for prolonged endurance and optimal work output in activities such as weight lifting and sprinting. Pyruvate stimulates glucose extraction from blood into muscle during exercise and at rest, priming muscle with a carbohydrate content essential for greater endurance. Creatine Pyruvate is much more soluble than Creatine alone and it is also more bioavailable so that it takes less to do the job. Since it is also more bioavailable, which means that large amounts of minerals (Calcium, Sodium, Potassium, etc.) are not ingested with the pyruvate, lessening the possibility of adverse reactions associated with large amounts of minerals, such as fluid retention.
Tri-Creatine malate is a compound made from Creatine monohydrate and malic acid. The substance is so named because the compound is made from three Creatine molecules attached to one molecule of malic acid. Creatine monohydrate, one of the substances that form the compound Tri-Creatine malate, is derived from glycine, arginine and methionine and helps to produce and circulate ATP - adenosine tri-phosphate - that is responsible for muscular contraction. Malic acid is involved in the Krebs energy cycle as an intermediate substance, and helps to provide energy to the body. When malic acid and Creatine monohydrate form the compound Tri-Creatine malate, the resulting product is more water-soluble than regular Creatine monohydrate, eliminates the possibility of gastric disruption, and is more efficient at efficaciously impacting the ATP cycle. Furthermore, Tri-Creatine malate is believed to offer greater bioavailability over regular Creatine monohydrate. Users of Tri-Creatine malate report substantial increases in endurance and recovery from intense exercise of appropriate duration. Water retention is one of the biggest complaints among many Creatine supplement consumers. Typically, this is because the cells outside of the muscles retain water. The hydration that Tri-Creatine Malate provides takes place within the muscle itself giving a hard muscle as opposed to the bloated look and feel. Tri-Creatine malate does not create the stomach to become bloated which is a common complaint of many Creatine consumers.
A recent study, combining Creatine with Russian Tarragon extract (Artemisia dracunculus L) was presented at last year’s ISSN conference. This controlled study looked at plasma concentrations of Creatine when combined with a specific Russian tarragon extract (Artemisia dracunculus L). Eleven healthy male subjects ingested either a combination of Creatine and Russian Tarragon extract or straight Creatine. Creatine concentrations in the plasma were then measured at 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes. The groups that ingested the Creatine with the added Russian tarragon extract showed significant reductions in plasma Creatine concentrations. The reductions were substantial and comparable to the area under curve (AUC) of the carbohydrate and Creatine study using 75g of glucose.
This is a major breakthrough study on Creatine supplementation. This means that combining Russian Tarragon, in the specific amounts in Big C, with Creatine, creates the same environment as combining Creatine with 75 grams of dextrose. This is an exciting time for dieting or carb conscious athletes, as Big C now allows their muscles to absorb the same amount of Creatine, but without the insulin spike that dextrose causes.
