No loading phase require works from the day you start using it!
CON-CRĒT is a pure, concentrated, creatine hydrochloride designed for
serious athletes (both professional and amateur) and any fitness-oriented
person who is looking to increase their conditioning level or gain a
competitive advantage. CON-CRĒT is also ideal for anyone whose livelihood
may benefit from an increase in the production of Adenosine Triphosphate
(ATP), a major source of energy or fuel for cellular and muscular function,
such as those on restrictive diets and who are not getting enough creatine
in the foods they eat.
Unlike other creatines on the market, CON-CRĒT does
not require a loading phase or the need to cycle-off. Due to its
bioavailability and recommended creatine Micro-Dosing, only a ¼ tsp (or 1
capsule) is needed per 100 lbs of body weight. A true scientific
breakthrough, CON-CRĒT is the only creatine on the market that you dose by
body weight, with one serving being equivalent to 5-10 grams of creatine
monohydrate. Unlike other creatines, CON-CRĒT does not cause any negative
side effects, such as bloating, water retention and GI issues that most have
experienced from taking other creatine blends. In a recent creatine uptake
study conducted by two major Universities, CON-CRĒT proved to be extremely
soluble creatine on the market—59x more soluble than creatine monohydrate.
The most readily absorbed creatine form available, CON-CRĒT offers
steroid-like results in strength, endurance and muscle recovery in a legal
and safe natural product. Athletes can take CON-CRĒT and get superior
results in performance without any worries of failing any form of drug
testing – you will never be tested positive for any illegal or banned
substances when taking CON-CRĒT.
What is CON-CRĒT?
CON-CRĒT is the world’s first and only pure creatine hydrochloride that
delivers safe and effective results with no negative side effects typical of
other creatines (such as bloating, cramping, GI issues, water retention,
etc). Due to its unique Micro-Dosing , it's the only creatine
that is dosed per body weight — ¼ teaspoon per (1 scoop or 1 capsule) per
100 lbs of body weight.
CON-CRĒT is a concentrated creatine hydrochloride molecule that has been
proven to be the most potent and soluble creatine on the market. Creatines
vary in performance largely based on solubility. The reason solubility is
crucial – if creatine isn’t in a solution form, it will not be absorbed into
the bloodstream. In a recent study conducted by researchers from two major
Universities, results showed convincing evidence of a significant
improvement in plasma uptake concentrations of this creatine hydrochloride,
CON-CRĒT — up to 70% greater —as compared to creatine monohydrate (CM) and
other creatine blends.
CON-CRĒT is the most readily absorbed creatine form available and therefore
does not require loading of large amounts or cycling off. CON-CRĒT’s
Micro-Dosing provides dramatic performance improvements in
strength, endurance and muscle recovery, and is safe to take every day.
Available in powder and capsule forms, each serving of CON-CRĒT is
equivalent to the potency of 5-10 grams of creatine monohydrate.
What is Creatine?
Creatine is nitrogenous organic acid which naturally occurs in vertebrates
and helps to supply energy to
muscle and nerve cells. Creatine was identified in 1832 when Michel Eugène
Chevreul discovered it as a
component of skeletal muscle which he later named creatine after the Greek
word for flesh, Kreas.
Creatine, by way of conversion to and from phosphocreatine, is present and
functions in all vertebrates,
as well as some invertebrates, in conjunction with the enzyme creatine
kinase. A similar system based on
arginine/phosphoarginine operates in many invertebrates via the action of
Arginine Kinase. The presence
of this energy buffer system keeps the ATP/ADP ratio high at subcellular
places where ATP is needed,
which ensures that the free energy of ATP remains high and minimizes the
loss of adenosine nucleotides,
which would cause cellular dysfunction.
In the human body, approximately half of the daily creatine is
biosynthesized by the use of parts from
three different amino acids - arginine, glycine, and methionine. The rest is
taken in by alimentary sources
mainly from fresh fish and meat. 95% of it is later stored in the skeletal
muscles, with the rest in the brain,
heart, testes, inner ear hair cells and other organs and cells.
When did creatine become a popularized form of supplementation?
Creatine supplements are amino aids used to increase high-intensity athletic
researchers have known of the use of creatine as an energy source by
skeletal muscles since the
beginning of the 20th century, they were popularized as a
performance-enhancing supplement in 1992.
Do creatine ester products have less potency than creatine monohydrates?
No. In fact, esters usually have more potency because they are more readily
increases potency by about 10x when compared to creatine monohydrate.
CON-CRĒT, however, is a
molecular development beyond esters and is significantly more potent than
What is the best manner to evaluate potency when comparing CON-CRĒT
(Micro-Dosing ) to all other forms of creatine (powder, pills,
tablets and liquids)?
In order to evaluate potency, you need to consider solubility, because
creatine needs to dissolve to get into your bloodstream and into your cells
for maximum performance. ProMera health commissioned Vireo Systems (a
nutriceutical manufacturer) to examine the solubility of CON-CRĒT compared
to creatine monohydrate (the most common form of creatine). The study
conducted between Vireo Systems and a major university showed results
demonstrating CON-CRĒT's far superior solubility, bio - availability and
potency. In this trial, a series of tests were run to compare the solubility
of creatine monohydrate to CON-CRĒT in pure water. Before performing the
procedure, it was insured that as many variables as possible were held at a
fixed point during the experiment, including water temperature, volume,
scale calibration, dissolving time and filter weight. To perform these
tests, amounts of each compound were recorded and were given a set time to
dissolve in water, and then were immediately filtered. Any precipitate left
in the 100 ml of water was secured in the filter and dried. Once dry, the
solid was weighed, and by assessing the difference of solid amounts, an
estimate of solubility was calculated.
The results showed that the creatine monohydrate solution revealed 3.5
grams of the original 5.0 grams which was recovered un-dissolved, resulting
in a solubility of 0.015 g/ml of creatine monohydrate, In comparison, 1.2
grams of CON-CRĒT was recovered out of a full 90.0 grams of the creatine,
which resulted in a solubility of 0.888 g/ml of CON-CRĒT. This proves that
CON-CRĒT is 59X more soluble than creatine monohydrate.
Since the human body is largely an aqueous based organism, these results
predict a dramatic difference in the bio-availability between various
conjugated dosage forms of oral creatine. Professionals in the health and
medical community concur that solubility is one of the keys for mechanisms
of actions to allow the uptake of molecules into the body.
The following graph depicts the results of this study showing CON-CRĒT at
nearly 59 times more potent than creatine monohydrate.
What amount of creatine is considered normal in a 200-pound person?
In light of the plethora of information put in the market by various vendors
to support their products in terms of what should be “loaded” and then
“maintained,” from a creatine in-take perspective, what
follows is a breakdown of what a typical 200 pound person should consider:
Given the inefficiency, or put another way, the lack of potency associated
with the various creatine products on the market today, it forces these
vendors to hype heavy in-take during loading periods. In essence, it is
their admission to their own products’ lack of potency and a marketing ploy
to increase usage/dosage, thereby increasing overall demand. CON-CRĒT does
not require loading, nor does it need to be cycled-off, but instead with its
unique Creatine Micro-Dosing (¼ tsp or 1 capsule per 100
lbs of body weight) there are no negative side effects typical of other
creatine products that require massive in-take.
- This person has approximately 160 grams of “free” creatine in their
body at any point in time, and is burning about 2.5 grams of free
creatine per day.
- The body produces approximately 1 gram of creatine per day on its
- The body then needs the balance of 1.5 grams of creatine per day via
diet or Supplementation.
- More activity/exercise can cause more creatine to be used and
As a result of its overall potency and the efficiency of a
unique creatine hydrochloride molecule, CON-CRĒT eliminates the
need for ingesting massive quantities of powders and pills. One
serving of CON-CRĒT is equivalent to the potency of 5-10 grams
of creatine monohydrate, and once again there are no side
effects (cramping, bloating, GI stress, and diarrhea).
How many grams of creatine are in a serving of CON-CRĒT (on an
CON-CRĒT is the only creatine on the market that is dosed based on body
weight (Micro-Dosing ). You receive superior results from smaller
doses with no negative side effects. This Micro-Dosing approach
calls for ¼ teaspoon (1 scoop or 1 capsule) of CON-CRĒT for every 100-pounds
As mentioned above, a single dose, or ¼ teaspoon of CON-CRĒT
(0.8gramsperserving) is the equivalent in muscle cell potency to 5–10 grams
of creatine monohydrate.
Do you recommend stacking CON-CRĒT with other
Generally speaking, CON-CRĒT can be stacked with complementary supplements.
For example, stacking
with whey or protein-based supplements is fairly typical and allows the user
to benefit from the unique
qualities each of these supplements offers.
We would, however, discourage anyone from stacking CON-CRĒT with another
or with a product that does not fully disclose their ingredients list.
In developing CON-CRĒT, was the goal to eliminate
the typical negative side-effects associated with other creatines on the
No. It was not the initial goal. In fact, our development team was focused
on increased absorption. In
achieving this goal and in-turn developing the Micro-Dosing approach,
our team soon discovered that the
overall efficiency of our solution eliminated these negative side effects
when taken as directed
We do realize, however, that not everyone shares the same metabolic
process. As such, it is important to
see how you respond to the recommended dosage. If, for some reason, you do
begin to experience
negative side-effects, that is simply your body telling you to pull back on
What is the main reason why CON-CRĒT does not
produce negative side-effects?
As described above, it is the combination of small dosage amounts coupled
with the overall efficiency in
the absorption of CON-CRĒT by the body. To put it simply, users do not
typically see negative side-effects
when taking CON-CRĒT because there isn’t all the “waste” that remains from
other creatines – waste that
the body uncomfortably struggles to process (gas, bloating).
As stated above, however, we recognize that not everyone is the same. If
for some reason you begin to
experience side-effects, it simply means you can further reduce the dosage
Is creatinine the primary cause of
No. The primary cause is related to the difficulty the body has with
excreting large dosage forms of other
creatine products and the edema (fluid redistribution) of creatine outside
the muscle tissue.
Would you suggest that glucose / dextrose be
combined with CON-CRĒT?
No, it is not necessary. Most individuals get plenty of sugar in their daily
dietary intake. We only suggest
taking CON-CRĒT with 4-6 ounces of grape or apple juice because, when mixed
with these juices, it will
create a pleasant tart taste.
Does taking CON-CRĒT with grape or apple juice
create a glucose carrier to assist product delivery into the body’s system
as compared to simply taking it with water?
As a continuation of the question above, we suggest taking CON-CRĒT with
grape or apple juice simply to
help moderate the tartness of the product.
We do not promote, nor do we make any claims regarding the concept of a
glucose carrier approach. In
fact, our test results show CON-CRĒT performing equally well regardless of
the liquid in which it is
What is the pH of CON-CRĒT? What is the pH of
your stomach? What does pH have to do with bio-availability and absorption?
pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. Aqueous
solutions at 25°C with a pH less than
seven are considered acidic, while those with a pH greater than seven are
considered basic (alkaline).
When a pH level is 7.0, it is defined as 'neutral' at 25°C because at this
pH the concentration of H3O+
equals the concentration of OH− in pure water. pH is formally dependent upon
the activity of hydronium
ions (H3O+), but for very dilute solutions, the molarity of H3O+ may be used
as a substitute with little loss
of accuracy. (H+ is often used as a synonym for H3O+). Because pH is
dependent on ionic activity, a
property which cannot be measured easily or fully predicted theoretically,
it is difficult to determine an
accurate value for the pH of a solution. The pH reading of a solution is
usually obtained by comparing
unknown solutions to those of known pH.
With that said, a dose of CON-CRĒT in 4-6 ounces of a liquid (grape
juice, apple juice or water) yields a pH
of approximately 2.0, but it does vary with the volume of liquid in which it
is dissolved. As shown in the
graphic below, the stomach has a pH that can vary between 1.0 and 2.0.
Bio-availability and absorption are effected by pH in that the gastro
intestinal (GI) tract is accustomed to
dealing with low pH materials and therefore requires no change or
differentiated chemistry to process.
Put another way, CON-CRĒT’s low pH is symbiotic to the stomach and the
cleaved molecules are a
completely natural component of the GI tract. This alignment produces the
and absorption rates that have been proven by the superior results
experienced by CON-CRĒT users.
How stable is CON-CRĒT in water / juice?
Results from tests sponsored by ProMera Health, LLC, the manufacturer and
marketer of CON-CRĒT, have
shown CON-CRĒT to be perfectly stable after 60-days in water. We are in the
process of further testing
these attributes and will update upon receipt of new data.
How important is it that CON-CRĒT dissolves
completely in water?
While there are significant studies that examine the percentage of water in
the human body, it is widely
agreed that the typical male has approximately 69% of their body mass
comprised of water. For females,
this number is approximately 55% (due to the higher proportion of body fat).
Obviously, water is a critical
component of life, and instrumental in maintaining health and wellness.
This data points directly to the significance of CON-CRĒT being soluble
and stable in water. In a recent
double-blind experiment, our independent researchers completely dissolved 90
grams of CON-CRĒT in
100mL of water (3.4 fluid ounces). The nearest competitor could only achieve
25 grams being dissolved,
and even then there was slight sediment visual. From there, most other
creatines on the market could
only dissolve 1 gram of product – clearly indicative of their lack of
effectiveness and thus the need for
Do you load or cycle with CON-CRĒT?
No. There is no need to load CON-CRĒT as it is highly soluble and highly
potent. As such, it delivers creatine directly to the muscles in a manner
that does not require the inefficient process known as loading. There is no
need to cycle as CON-CRĒT safely delivers creatine on a consistent and
manner, which eliminates the need for cycling.
When can you expect to see results from
Users often report an immediate impact on endurance and recovery. From a
strength building and
muscle size perspective, our user assessments (volunteers who dosed from 4
to 104 weeks) reflected that
95% of users saw results in the first four weeks of usage with the balance
noting results by week five.
It is important to note that continued use of CON-CRĒT is safe and will
continue to positively impact
endurance, recovery, strength and mass when taken as directed.
Remember, by facilitating strength and recovery, CON-CRĒT allows you to
work-out longer and more
effectively so that you can build more muscle. It also can help increase
muscle volume by pulling water
into the cells for protein synthesis, which, in turn, causes the muscles to
Finally, there have been several companies that
tout that their creatine products are “micronized” – what are they referring
Unfortunately, this term tends to be marketing hype. In most cases, the term
micronized refers to the
difference between using 80 mesh creatine monohydrate and 200 mesh creatine
monohydrate. Or, put
another way, it is simply ground-down and screened to a finer powder
consistency which usually brings
along a higher price tag with no significant increase in performance.
