Gen-Tec Nutrition provides the highest quality pharmaceutical grade Micronised Crerapure Creatine Monohydrate (CM). Micronised creatine is the most bio-available form due to faster absorption and greater total uptake of the fine creatine molecules. Creatine is responsible for improving performance in high-intensity exercise, increasing energy, strength, increasing lean muscle mass and speeding up recovery rates.
When consumed in supplement form CM stores in muscle cells as creatine phosphate (CP). CP is then instant energy store for conversion of Adenosine DI Phosphate (ADP) to Adenosine Tri Phosphate (ATP). This is called the phosphate energy system. Any high intensity exercise which last for 10 seconds or less uses this energy system.
For example: Creatine is the only fuel source for a 100 yard sprint, jump, leap, tackle, throw, run kick, single or double lift etc.
Carbohydrate and fat doesn’t supply energy for muscle contraction fast enough in these situations. In addition to creatine’s positive role as an energy source stored creatine draws extra water “into” muscle cells thereby increasing muscle size and fullness.
Larger, fuller cells also have greater leverage directly increasing strength. The water cell volumising effect of creatine supplementation helps increase proten synthesis while minimizing muscle breakdown. All of this adds up to greater energy, strength and muscle growth. Gen-Tec source their creatine from Japan. The Japanese are producing a micronised creatine monohydrate that is very pure and is produced at a very fine 40 micron particle size. The new manufacturing procedure is so effective that a US patent has been taken out (US Patent #US 6,326,513 B1) and this patent number is on every Gen-Tec creatine container to reassert its purity and potency for obtaining results.
Gen-Tec’s is also tested for the three major contaminants: creatinine, dicyandiamide and dihydrotriazine.
Creatinine (CRN): Is a by-product of creatine synthesis. It is a waste product which is excreted in the urine. Creatinine has no ergogenic properties whatsoever. It’s also the stuff that you get when you leave creatine suspended in solution for a long period of time.
Dicyandiamide (DCD): Is a derivative of cyanamide. During creatine testing, large amounts of residual dicyandiamide indicate that the manufacturing process was either inefficient or incomplete. Like creatinine, DCD is excreted in the urine as a waste product. A good creatine monohydrate should contain no more than 50 parts per million (ppm) of dicyandiamide. A great creatine monohydrate should contain far less than this. Gen-Tec Nutritions Creapure contains a guarantee of less than 2 ppm.
Dihydrotriazine (DHT): Is another contaminant that results from improper creatine manufacturing. It belongs to a class of chemicals known as triazines and is a virtually unknown substance, pharmacologically and toxicologically.
Until longterm studies are performed, we simply have no idea what dihydrotriazine will do to the human body. Gen-Tec Nutrition’s Creapure contains Nil DHT. With Gen-Tec Creapure you know you are getting the purest, fine grade Creatine Monohydrate on the market today! This inevitably leads to better results and value for money.
