What is it?

Creatine is the world′s most popular and research proven sports supplement, used to increase muscle size, strength and sports performance. Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL is a unique version of Creatine designed to maximise muscle Creatine uptake and go beyond the beneficial effects of traditional Creatine. Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL reportedly offers a potential new generation of Creatine supplementation which is already developing a strong following among elite athletes and bodybuilders. Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL can be found in the market leading Creatine product, CEE-MAX™, which also contains Alpha lipoic acid to drive more Creatine into muscle cells.

Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL′s unique delivery system means you may be able to avoid the need to load Creatine (20g dosing for several days). Furthermore, you no longer need to consume Creatine with a high-glycaemic carbohydrate drink, to cause an insulin spike necessary for Creatine uptake (Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL maximises uptake without a huge insulin burst). The results achieved with Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL are very fast and noticeable ∼ potential the perfect support for power, strength and performance.

Who should use it?

Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL contains Creatine, which is great for virtually all athletes and many gym users. Fundamentally, as a strength and muscle booster, it provides fantastic support for bodybuilders, weightlifters, anyone wanting to build muscle mass and power athletes such as sprinters. Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL is growing in popularity because it doesn′t need to be taken with lots of carbohydrates, and offers fast effects with a low dose (no loading). Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL is being used by mostly bodybuilders, as it gains credibility in the market place, as this form of Creatine lacks the extensive research that comes with Creatine monohydrate.

How does it work?

When you squat heavy weights, perform sprints during football or race for the line at the end of a race, you rely on the power of muscle Creatine to get you there. However, as all athletes have experienced, muscle Creatine levels are very limited, and your muscles are soon depleted of the ultimate high energy phosphate. Until these stores are replenished, your performance is impaired. By increasing the availability of Creatine, supplementation has been proven to increase strength, muscle mass and performance.

However, to ensure sufficient Creatine uptake, traditional Creatine supplementation requires a ′loading phase′. Essentially, this involves consuming 20g of Creatine per day with an insulin spiking carbohydrate such as dextrose. This dosing was found to be optimum for Creatine uptake. Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL is thought to make Creatine loading unnecessary (note that for some athletes consuming Creatine with dextrose is very beneficial, for example following exercise or when bulking up). Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL works by binding Creatine with a fat soluble ethanol ester. Creatine is transported into muscle cells via lipid pathways, however because it is only semi-lipopholic, it does not display efficient cell permeability. This problem is thought to be removed by Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL, eliciting faster and more complete cell transport and muscle Creatine saturation.

Muscle strength and size
Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL is thought to be an effective method of boosting muscle size and strength levels. Normal Creatine monohydrate has been shown to dramatically increase muscle mass and strength, when compared to the effects of a dummy supplement over a 12-week period of weight training [3]. This study found that strength development increased by 32% more in the squat and 24% more in the bench press. Creatine also led to twice as much muscle gain, compared to the dummy supplement. The effects of Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL could be even more positive, making it extremely beneficial for bodybuilders and strength athletes.

Further research suggests that these kind of results are very common among average trainers. In fact, the power of Creatine has been demonstrated by the very well respected Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise. After just five days of supplementing with 20g of Creatine daily, subjects displayed an average weight increase of over 3lbs of muscle [4]. Note: due to the power of CEE-MAX™, less Creatine may be required to achieve results, roughly 3-5g daily.

Sports performance & endurance
Some people feel that Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL may be equally useful for endurance based athletes. An excellent Belgium study found that Creatine boosted performance by almost 10% in events lasting longer than 2 hours [7].
Furthermore, Creatine is gaining a big following among field game teams, such as hockey, soccer, rugby and basketball. Probably the best study has emerged from one of Spain′s top football clubs, Athletico Bilbao. The effects of Creatine were gauged by assessing the sprint performance of 19 players (either taking Creatine or a placebo), following a simulated metabolic stress protocol. The results conclusively demonstrated that Creatine supplementation boosted 5- and 15-metre sprint times ∼ which is why the club′s players are advised to take the supplement.

Health support
Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL is an advanced form of Creatine, more suited to the bodybuilders than regular users of Creatine monohydrate. Many studies have agreed that Creatine supplementation reduces the loss of muscle tissue and boosts strength in elderly subjects. However long term studies of Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL are lacking and those taking it need to take this into consideration.

How do I use it?

Most experts recommend you will gain maximum benefits by consuming 3g of Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL per day, split in to three 1g doses. Effects may be enhanced if you also consume 25mg of Alpha lipoic acid with each serving. The market leading CEE-MAX™ product provides the perfect synergy of these nutrients, in three easy to take capsules.

What results can I expect?

Supplementing with Creatine Ethyl-Ester HCL should exhibit the results of Creatine users, those being a weight gain of several pounds within 5 days, followed by increased performance in the gym, greater strength and more muscle mass when used for several weeks and months. When used as a performance enhancer, expect more sprinting energy, faster times and great recovery.
