 MMUSA's Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum

Description

MMUSA's Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum features an innovative matrix that combines a stabilized liquid creatine and the amino acids glutamine, carnitine and taurine. This innovative combination of nutrients promotes muscle, glucose (sugar) and energy metabolism. Athletes and bodybuilders can develop low muscle stores of creatine and glutamine and diminished energy and blood sugar levels after high intensity exercise. Creatine, glutamine, carnitine and taurine have been used by elite athletes and bodybuilders to promote energy, athletic training and performance.

Creatine is a naturally occurring metabolite found in red muscle tissue that helps provide energy to muscles. Independent studies suggest that creatine can increase strength and enhance athletic training and performance. Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum features creatine in a stabilized liquid form that is faster acting and more easily administered than powdered creatine. This liquid form of creatine enhances the absorption and utilization of creatine, without the need for loading or maintenance phases.

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (protein building block) found in the body. Glutamine is converted to glucose (sugar) when the body needs more glucose as an energy source. Studies suggest that glutamine supplementation can prevent muscle tissue breakdown (catabolism) and enhance protein metabolism.

Carnitine enhances cellular energy production by using fat as energy. Research suggests that L-carnitine supplementation can enhance athletic performance, especially intense exercise activities. Taurine is a natural nitrous oxide (NO) promoter. NO is a free form gas produced by the body that promotes muscle energy and growth.


Pros

Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum is a stable liquid plant extract with a shelf-life up to two years. Unlike powdered creatine, Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum doesn't require mega loading or maintenance doses. Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum is quickly and efficiently absorbed in the body and begins to work immediately.

High doses of creatine monohydrate are known to cause side effects such as water retention, bloating, dehydration and cramping. Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum's small dosages have no short-or long-term side effects.

The nutrients in Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum have the following benefits:

  • Promotes muscle growth
  • Enhances muscle energy metabolism
  • Prevents muscle breakdown due to intense weight training
  • Promotes athletic training and performance
  • Immediate acting, taken only on training days
  • No loading or maintenance phases
  • Stable shelf-life for up to 2 years

Cons

Unstable liquid creatine products can rapidly degrade into the waste product creatinine, so obtain stable liquid creatine from a reputable company such as MMUSA.

No toxicity has been reported in studies with creatine. However, stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea and muscle cramping have been reported with high doses of creatine.

Pregnant or lactating women, diabetics and people with high blood pressure should not supplement with Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum. MMUSA warns that people with any health conditions or using additional medications should consult a physician prior to using Xtra Advantage Creatine Serum.

The fact that it's a serum is supposed in increase absorption rate but I don't seem to notice any significant improvement compared to traditional tablets. I guess it is effective, but so are all the other glucosamine products with similar concentrations.
