most athletes are fully aware of the numerous potential benefits of creatine
supplementation, -increased ATP levels, contractile ability and muscle cell
volume, to name just a few. However, because of all the hype, most consumers
have now become confused about the best way to boost creatine levels. Quality
creatine is actually very easy to absorb, there are no gimmicks required, only a
neutral pH for stability.
In the race to offer the "next generation" supplement, some have not
surprisingly attempted to conceal this little known fact by throwing up a smoke
screen. But creatine citrate, pyruvate, ribose and liquid creatine have come and
gone and those pushing them have been left with nothing but egg on their faces.
These supplements have failed the tests on literally every count, -quality,
efficacy and, as is the case with liquid creatines, safety (they contain no
creatine at all, -only harmful creatinine!!!).
This brings us nicely to the real deciding factor with creatine selection.
Unfortunately, because production prices have recently dropped, most companies
have now got caught up in a price war, totally overlooking the single most
important issue, -purity! In fact, a recent survey that analysed the material
from 28 producers/distributors in the U.S., UK, Germany and the rest of Europe
revealed that most supplements fell between 88 and 92% purity, despite their label
claims! Dicyandiamide: Cyanamide derivative used in the production of
fertilizers, explosives, fire proofing, etc. Breaks down into cyanide gas when
exposed to strong acid. Like stomach acid perhaps? Creatinine: A byproduct of
creatine metabolism with no ergogenic value and found in very large amounts in
some samples. Linked with kidney disorders and colon cancer. Dihydrotriazine:
Toxicity unknown, -no research! Sodium: Once again, found in very high levels in
some samples. Aside from the health implications, do you really want to be
paying for this? Just think about those whopping 8-12% nasties next time you
load on a supplement that seemed too cheap to be true! Without a doubt, purity is
the only issue with creatine worth considering.
