CON-CRET is the world's first and only concentrated creatine. This specially conjugated creatine contains no calories, no fillers, no sugar and gains its competitive advantage from its delivery mechanism. Known as micro-dosing- defined as, 1/4 teaspoon per 100 pounds of bodyweight.
CON-CRET uses bonding molecules that have been effectively and safely used in the pharmaceutical industry for years. This patent-pending conjugation is at the heart of this revolutionary approach to the creatine market. For the first time, users gain all of the benefits associated with creatine while eliminating the negative side-effects that have historically plagued other products. CON-CRET is not creatine monohydrate nor is it an ester creatine.The box states that CON-CRET is a, "Specially Conjugated Creatine," üh what does that mean? Conjugated means "bound"- it is simply a scientific term for molecules being bonded together. As stated above, CON-CRET uses bonding molecules that have been effectively used for years.
When did creatine become a popularized form of supplementation?
Creatine supplements are athletic aids used to increase high-intensity athletic performance. Though 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.
What is creatinine?
Creatinine is a breakdown product of creatine phosphate in muscle, and is usually produced at a fairly constant rate by the body.
What is the difference between creatine and creatinine?
In an effort to simplify, creatine is the bio-active nutrient that aides in the ATP process of the body. Creatinine is the bio-inactive result of creatine breaking down and cyclizing. It is the form in which creatine is processed out of the body (filtered by the kidneys and excreted out through the bladder / urine).
Frequently Asked Questions
Do creatine ester products have less potency than creatine monohydrates?
No. In fact, esters usually have more potency because they are more readily bio-available. Esterfication increases potency by about 10x when compared to creatine monohydrate. CON-CRET, however, is a molecular development beyond esters and is significantly 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:
- 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 own
- 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 therefore needed
CON-CRET does not require loading, nor does it need to be cycled. As a result of its overall potency and the efficiency of the carrier molecule, CON-CRET eliminates the need for ingesting massive quantities of powders and pills.
How many grams of creatine are in a serving of CON-CRET (on an equivalent basis)?
As described above, CON-CRET is delivered via a micro-dosing approach. This dosing approach calls for a 1/4 teaspoon of CON-CRET for every 100 pounds of body weight.A single dose, or 1/4 teaspoon of CON-CRET (0.8 grams per serving) is the equivalent in muscle cell potency to 5 -10 grams of creatine monohydrate. In keeping with our 200-pound example, a 1/2 teaspoon dose of CON-CRET (1.6 grams per serving) is the equivalent in muscle cell potency of 10 - 20 grams of creatine monohydrate. There is no more simplistic way to illustrate the potency of CON-CRET versus creatine monohydrate than to consider the dosage ratio described here.
Do you recommend stacking CON-CRET with other supplements?
Generally speaking, CON-CRET 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-CRET with another creatine-based product, or with a product that does not fully disclose their ingredients list.
In developing CON-CRET, was the goal to eliminate the typical negative side-effects associated with other creatines on the market?
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 the dosage.
Do you load or cycle with CON-CRET?
No. There is no need to load CON-CRET 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-CRET safely delivers creatine on a consistent and efficient manner, which eliminates the need for cycling.
When can you expect to see results from CON-CRET?
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-CRET is safe and will continue to positively impact endurance, recovery, strength and mass when taken as directed.
Remember, by facilitating strength and recovery, CON-CRET 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 be bigger.
