I’m new to the board…so please excuse any goofy questions. I’m wondering if anyone has feedback/knowledge on Cellucor’s creatine. It sounds like a great product to me. Here is some info:
…by combining the following components: 1) A cellular hydration response modifier, 2) An endogeneous creatine co-factor, and 3) A novel blend of transport mechanisms.
Key Element #1.
The first mechanism found in M5 to help maximize your anabolic state involves a cellular hydration response modifier known as Kre-Alkalyn, which is the only 100% bio-available form of creatine ever developed. Your body naturally produces about 2 grams of creatine on a daily basis. If you supplement with 5 grams of regular creatine, you’ll likely only get the benefit of 200-400 mg of actual creatine (and 4,600 mg of toxic creatinine). Most of the creatine is lost when added to liquid, and even more is converted as it passes through your acidic stomach. Over the years, many new forms of creatine have been developed including, effervescent, titrate, di-creatine and, most recently, ester creatine technology. However, these technologies cannot deliver an effective, concentrated dose of creatine without converting to creatinine since they are not above a pH level of 7 and 100% stable?like Kre-Alkalyn.
Key Element #2.
…Glycocyamine, a novel endogenous creatine co-factor. Glycocyamine is the primary building block, or pre-cursor, to the body’s natural production of creatine. When you supplement your diet with creatine, there is a possibility you may be suppressing your natural production and therefore limiting your body’s anabolic potential. By adding Glycocyamine to our formula we were able to maximize both the anabolic effect of the Kre-Alkalyn as well as the body’s natural production and storage of cellular hydrating compounds.
Key Element #3.
…advanced blend of transport mechanisms. In order to maximize the absorption rate of the anabolic components found in M5 , we focused on the following: 1) Decreasing the surface tension surrounding the cell membrane and 2) Increasing the release of insulin secretion. …M5, contains the following components: Silica Hydride, Dargenol?, Guanipro?, Cinnerol?, and 4-Hydroxy Isoleucine.

Ok, you fell for the latest scam of creatines. Buffering or liquid suspension do not add any positive effect on bio-availability. There are studies showing that creatine does not convert to creatinine as rapidly as these companies want you to believe. All that surface tension lessening is just mumbo-jumbo. Monohydrate is still the best and least expensive way of supplementing creatine. Don’t buy into the hype.
