a compound formed in protein metabolism and present in much living tissue. It is involved in the supply of energy for muscular contraction.
I do not take many supplements. I find that the lack of testing on most sports supplements makes it difficult to determine there worth. I am fortunate enough to be involved with a sport that occassionally hands out samples of different products to try and some I continue with and others I either shelve or give away. Personally I am a huge fan of Perfect Nutrition Whey Protein in Gluten Free, Active Womens multi-vitamins, Ripped Freak Fat burners. Other than those I have tried many but take very few.
After my photoshoot with the fabulous Rick Oliver a couple of weeks ago I was given a sample of Con-Cret Creatine Micro-Dosing in Fruit Punch flavor. It may be suprising but even after 3 years of heavy lifting in the gym I had not tried creatine. I had the misconception that it was for men.
My sample was 25.2 grams and said to have 24 doses in the container. Instructions say to have 1 or 2 servings per 100 lbs of body weight. I then did my research and found that at that rate it would take about 3 weeks to start feeling the effects. I am impatient so I found articles on saturation on line. For the first 5 days I took 4 scoops of this stuff a day. While it is supposed to take weeks to start feeling the effects… I am sold that this product is Amazing.
I have beat every single one of my personal bests at the gym in the last 5 days. I have more energy while there and I am experiencing less DOMS than normal. I do feel that I am retaining water slightly however I am attributing that to the saturation phase I experimented with last week. I am definitely going to continue with this product!
I found the product on Supplement source and at $39.97 for 48 servings it will definitely be added in indefinitely. They also have great information on the product itself so be sure to check it out.
I highly recomend this product.
