ProMera Sports are best known for their concentrated creatine supplement Con-Cret, which was the first supplement to utilise creatine HCL (hydrochloride); a much more soluble form of creatine than creatine monohydrate. More recently, ProMera have decided to expand their range with a slew of products including Gluta-Blast, Pump Extrem and the specially designed and formulated women’s pre-workout; Women’s Elite. Let’s examine in more detail the formula for Women’s Elite and see how it compares with other pre-workouts.
ProMera Con-Cret Women’s Elite Highlights
- Specially designed women's pre-workout to support energy and fat loss
- Creatine HCL - world's most soluble creatine for strength and performance
- Capsicum and Black Pepper Extract for fat loss and supplement absorption
ProMera Con-Cret Women’s Elite Ingredients & Dosage
ProMera Women’s Elite is another concentrated supplement with a tiny serving size and only a few ingredients including:
- Creatine HCL (Con-Cret®)
- Capsicum Extract (Capsicum Annuum) Capsimax™
- Black Pepper Fruit Extract (BioPerine®)
The rest of the ingredients include a range of B vitamins including B3, B6, B12, folate and biotin as well as the mineral chromium. Each tub provides 36 serves of 1.1g with each serving providing 802mg of active ingredients.
ProMera Con-Cret Women’s Elite Pros & Effectiveness
Women’s Elite is a fairly simple product and one that was designed to support strength, power and overall exercise performance whilst also supporting fat and weight loss. Both capsicum extract and black pepper fruit extract have studies demonstrating their abilities to support fat and weight loss and also to enhance absorption of several ingredients respectively.
ProMera Con-Cret Women’s Elite Cons
ProMera Sports products are known for their tiny serving sizes; ones which you would not think provides enough of the ingredients they utilise. While creatine HCL is indeed more soluble than the more researched creatine monohydrate, its ability to increase the body’s stores of creatine is yet to be confirmed, especially at doses under 1,000mg. Similarly, at such a small dose, you have to wonder if there are therapeutic amounts of both the capsicum and black pepper extracts to perform the functions they’ve been researched to do.
ProMera Con-Cret Women’s Elite Taste & Mixability
ProMera Con-Cret Women’s Elite is available in two flavours; Mango and Strawberry Kiwi. Both are great flavours and have less of a bite than what you would get from Con-Cret. As with all ProMera products, the Women’s Elite mixes extremely well without any residue, grittiness or frothing.
ProMera Con-Cret Women’s Elite Verdict
ProMera have built a strong brand name around Con-Cret as being one of the more revolutionary creatine supplements around. With the Con-Cret Women’s Elite, ProMera have designed a pre-workout supplement specifically for women, promising energy boosts and fat burning. However, as with many of their products, you have to question their micro doses and whether it contains enough of each ingredient to make an impact. But one has to admit that they’re a popular brand and that has to count for something. If you’re a lady who’s after a bit of a boost in their workouts and for weight loss but without the heavy stims, then ProMera Con-Cret Women’s Elite is for you.
