Getting into the creatine market we didnít want to just pump out your same generic blends with the same generic ingredients. Most blends rarely seem to deliver much more than regular old creatine but we wanted to deliver a blend to our Fanatyx that would restore their faith in this particular category. Creatine blends have a lot of potential and if you give us a shot weíre going to show you just how far they can take your performance.
Regardless of your particular sport youíve likely already heard of creatine at some point. Itís the one supplement everyone seems to know but unfortunately few seem to have a solid of understanding of what it is and what it does. Its benefits to exercise performance has been so deeply researched and so greatly supported by the athletic community that to not use it would be crazy.
A quick summary for those less experienced with creatine: Creatine monohydrate functions by increasing intracellular creatine stores. Creatine phosphate is a key member in the production of ATP, which is one of the main forms of energy utilized in the body. During intense exercise as ATP becomes used and converted to ADP creatine phosphate can donate its phosphate group returning it to ATP to be reutilized. The effect is most strongly pronounced during short bouts of power such as sprinting, weight lifting, or various other high impact sports.
The impact of creatine on cell volume is more important than most tend to understand. A larger cell has more surface area and optimizes cellular life, and greatly improves cellular functions like glycogen uptake. Increased glycogen uptake to skeletal muscle is preferential for any athlete as it will undoubtedly lead to enhanced performance. In addition, the increased cell volume and creatine stores promote greater performance and training adaptations, effectively enhancing every workout.
Magnesium Creatine Chelate:
Why two different sources of creatine, wouldnít they all have the same effect? The answer is a confusing yes and no. Creatine Monohydrate is a nice cheap source of creatine that delivers the results as promised of creatine. However many people can find GI distress with higher doses of creatine monohydrate and to get creatines effects you need to make sure youíre dosing enough to saturate creatine phosphate stores. The effect takes time and results will be subtle to non-existent in non responders or people dosing too little.
This is where Magnesium Creatine Chelate, more commonly referenced as MCC, comes in to play. Anecdotal reports suggest MCC doesnít produce the same GI distress more commonly noticed with creatine monohydrate. MCC also appears to be a superior creatine form in regards to overall effects.
A study was done comparing magnesium creatine chelate supplementation to magnesium oxide and creatine supplementation. Both protocols produced similar significant increases in power compared to placebo with significant increases in peak torque and great increases in work capacity from the MCC group. The magnesium creatine chelate group had some surprisingly significant effects compared to magnesium oxide and creatine supplementation group.
The researchers also measured the effects both groups had on water composition of the body including intracellular, extracellular and total body water retention. It was found that only the magnesium creatine chelate group had a significant increase in intracellular water retention and significant decrease in extracellular water retention and researchers attributed this to a better uptake of creatine.
This is the volumizing effect of the cell we are looking for with creatine that will also produce significant improves in how your physique looks as muscle bellies expand with water. Beyond the effects of the creatine, MCC also supplies a significant amount of magnesium. Magnesium is important for a host of biological functions including energy production and exercise has the potential to reduce magnesium status in athlete. ATP production from myokinase and creatine kinase reactions require magnesium. However few studies have produced the favorable direct results on exercise performance that are sought with solely magnesium supplementation. Regardless it is an important mineral and from an overall health perspective itís nice to know MCC is helping to maintain optimal magnesium status.
This lesser known compound has a variety of benefits to enhancing exercise performance but most commonly referenced are its various impacts on ATP pools. ATP (adenosine- triphosphate ) is an important substrate in energy utilization in humans and other animals and is rapidly depleted by intense exercise.
Orotic acid enhances ATP pools through varying mechanisms, but more commonly noted are its ability to increase levels of the nucleosides uridine and cytidine. Uridine is capable of increasing myocardial ATP through anaerobic glycolysis. Through abilities to increase hepatic release pyrimidine nucleosides, orotic acid can be cardio-protective by preventing the depletion of adenine nucleotides in infarcted hearts. Increases in uridine should also correlate to increases in muscular uptake of glucose, glycolysis, and myocardial performance under normal and hypoxic conditions.
More simply put, orotic acid has the potential to increase ATP pools under stressful conditions such as exercise and can enhance performance.
Another plausible mechanism for orotic acidís benefits to exercise is its ability to increase the formation of beta-alanine. Beta-alanine is well known for its benefits to increase muscular carnosine stores and boost athletic performance during endurance exercise.
From here on out weíll just refer to this herb as Astra. Itís one of the 50 fundamental herbs of traditional Chinese medicine and has many promising effects on the body for athletes its absurd.
It is studied widely for its immune system strengthening qualities which is an area where athletes can suppress their own abilities to fight of illness. Astra has been studied in many rodent models to show it can help promote immune function but itís also proved its worth in bigger trials. In an open clinical trial 115 patients with leukopenia received either a high dose or low dose Astra preparation. Leukopenia is a disease in which an individual has a low white blood cell count leaving them more vulnerable to infection. In both dosing groups Astra significantly elevated white blood cell count substantially boosting their immune function.
Healthy in more ways than one Astra is also excellent for cellular and mitochondrial health. Mitochondrial health specifically is a key factor for health and longevity and athletes who train strenuously may overwhelm their own bodies mechanisms for protecting them. Lipid peroxidation being a key damaging factor to the mitochondrial membrane fluidity can be greatly inhibited by Astra. The heart is especially vulnerable to this damaging process making Astra an excellent add to any individual looking to not only build a better physique but a healthier one as well.
It makes us healthier, cool but how much is that really going to do for me? Fret not Fanatyx because Astraís been field tested as well for actual performance enhancing qualities and looking at the science itís going to do a lot for you. Animal models have shown Astra to significantly reduce symptoms of lethargy and weakness in chronically fatiguing trials where the animals were over worked and underfed. This is a situation not that unfamiliar with athletes who can be overzealous with their training and often go too far to recover. For this reason competitive body builders and physique athletes will greatly appreciate what Astra does for them as they train for many weeks on hypocaloric diets to get into peak condition for competitions.
Will I notice that in the gym, what if Iím eating plenty and go to bed on time, will it really do much? Actually yes, Astra has been shown in animal models using rodents and forced swimming trials that it can significantly extend swimming time and enhance endurance capacity. It also slows blood lactate accumulation and reduces serum BUN levels post exercise. Elevated BUN(blood urea nitrogen) levels can cause symptoms of lethargy so using Astra can reduce that post workout fatigue you might be accustomed to. Itís shown to be cardio protective in vivo in rodent models through its antioxidative and nitric oxide inducing properties.
Now you can see how this isnít your generic run of the mill creatine blend, itís going to impact multiple areas of your training abilities. With creignite youíll see PRís not only on your one rep max but also great increases in athletic performance and endurance capacity over all. Itís a creatine blend taken to the next level so we can give any athlete that edge their looking for.
