CREAPURE ® aka Creatine. Creatine is required for physical and mental exertion. Bodybuilders, rugby players and athletes from nearly all forms of sport have used supplemental creatine to amazing effect. In fact its safe to say that just about every Olympic athlete will use Creatine at some point or another in their career because the results are measureable, safe and proven – and they will nearly all rely on one type and one type only – CREAPURE®.
A glass of fresh water can contain harmful bacteria and germs. But to the naked eye it looks just as good as 100% pure water. This is true for creatine, too. Even though creatine can look like pure white powder, it can be of inferior quality, containing toxicologically harmful impurities. It’s therefore vital that you choose a proven Creatine that is both extremely pure, proven to be highly effective and above all proven to be safe; it’s for this very reason that Reflex® only supply and manufacture products with Creapure® Creatine and its the same reason that top athletes also choose Creapure.
Creapure® has been studied extensively for its safety. All of the studies were carried out on Creapure® in accordance with internationally accepted guidelines and standards (FDA and EU) under GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) conditions. Furthermore, numerous animal and human trials were commissioned to test the safety of Creapure® as a supplement. In addition to the classic toxicological tests, Creapure® was investigated in more than 50 clinical trials. People of all ages tested Creapure® in sports and non-sports applications over a period of more than 21 months without experiencing any side-effects.
Because other creatine manufacturers use different manufacturing processes, and therefore have different purity profiles, only Creapure® has this proven safety profile, again one of the main reasons that top athletes choose Creapure.
CREAPURE Creatine is proven to be very effective. The effect of Creapure® creatine supplementation has been studied in people with different levels of fitness and athletic ability, ranging from elite athletes to relatively unfit beginners. Creatine supplementation has a performance-enhancing effect for a wide range of sports;
For sports that require speed, such as sprinting, long jump, swimming, kayaking/rowing, and for intensive strength training by bodybuilders and cyclists, short-term creatine supplementation can greatly improve performance in the areas of maximum strength and endurance (5-15%), with interval training in the maximum range (5-20%), with power production in short sprints (approx. 30%,) and in training with repetitive sprints (5-15%).
CREAPURE Creatine is made in Germany to the strictest standards. Creapure® has been produced in a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) facility since 2004. This means that Creapure® is manufactured according to the same stringent requirements as those used in pharmaceutical manufacturing. Even the planning and construction of a GMP facility is subject to certain requirements and later, when the product is being produced and analyzed, special measures need to be implemented then, as well. The manufacturing process is monitored continuously, and each production step is documented in great detail. For consumers, production in a GMP facility equates to greater safety, a purer and more effective product.
Other forms of Creatine like CEE. The last 10 years has seen new forms of creatine come to the market such as Creatine Ethyl Ester (CEE) and Tri Creatine Malate. All of the research on creatine has been undertaken using creatine monohydrate. In fact most other forms of creatine do not have a single research study to show that they are effective or safe. Additionally a majority of the research on creatine monohydrate has actually been conducted using Creapure creatine which is manufactured in Germany and is considered to be the highest quality creatine available. Independent testing in the 1990’s highlighted that much of the creatine monohydrate available contained impurities, however Creapure creatine did not contain any detectable amounts.
