Better absorbtion, less gastrointestinal problemsCreatine-AKG is regarded as being the most effective form of Creatine, which allows optimum absorption and application of creatine. For all athletes who have problems or unsatisfactory results with creatine monohydrate, alkalyn creatine, tri creatine malate and or with Creatine Ethyl, Creatine-AKG is a satisfactory alternative.
Creatine-AKG is based on the diverse characteristics of muscle and strength building, improvement of endurance performance, sprints and recovery of athletes in all disciplines and works towards the assimilation and utilization of Vitamin B complex.
What can I expect from Creatine AKG?
Creatine-AKG is not a muscle builder like all-in-one Createston, but a highly functional single substrate. It is particularly well tolerated and consumed, even though Creatine-AKG provides no significant amount of nutrients. Thus you can fully benefit from creatine without worrying about the calories.
If you had never taken creatine supplements before or you have taken a long break from creatine and your creatine levels in your body are low, by supplementing with creatine AKG you can gain in 4 - 8 weeks just over 3 kg muscle mass, grow 20 to 25% in power and lose 1kg of fat.
If you have already taken creatine, therefore, your creatine levels are full, with further supplementing of creatine you can no longer expect further leaps in performance, but you can expect a constant average gain in muscle mass of 1 to 2 per year over several years.
Muscle tissue can only exist with a sufficient and constant intake of amino acids. Therefore stock-up with fast and slow proteins (especially in the morning, before and after training) and with creatine AKG for further development of substrates and to avoid degradation process.
Function and Impact
Creatine-AKG is a molecular combination of creatine with alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG). This special form of creatine is currently the most effective of its kind on the market and outperforms the other forms of creatine by far.
To make it more stable and easier to assimilate, Alpha-Ketoglutarate is molecularly coupled in minerals, amino acids and vitamins. This principle also works for creatine and creatine and with Creatine-AKG.
Creatine-AKG is as stable in acid (stomach acid, juice, etc.) as alkaline creatine. This means that the conversion of creatine to the useless and even harmful creatinine is avoided. Creatine AKG is easier to dissolve than Creatine Malate or Creatine Pyruvate.
Creatine-AKG is easily absorbed and extremely bio-available, since it is released directly into the blood stream, excluding stomach and intestinal problems that 10-20% of athletes have with creatine monohydrate.
Creatine-AKG is easily assimilated, since creatine is taken at the cellular level with AKG even without the usual penetration of carbohydrate transfer matrix into the cells.
This means that best results possible for strength and muscle endurance can be achieved without gastrointestinal problems or osmotic pressures, with small levels of intake (1-3 grams of creatine) into the subcutaneous tissue. In addition, no carbohydrate transport matrix is required for the optimal effect of creatine, which is an advantage for those on a diet and for soft gainers.
The combination of creatine with AKG also means: AKG enhances the body´s production of glutamine and glutamic acid which are important for the muscles and the immune system. AKG is combined in the muscle, the kidneys and the brain with toxic ammonia to create glutamic acid, which on the one hand improves the glutamine status of the organism and on the other, removes toxic ammonia from the body.
AKG improves both the maximum oxygen uptake, as the important intermediary in the Krebs cycle (citric acid cycles) as well as the energy in muscle cells and is regarded as ergogenic.
