Six Star’s Advanced Creatine

Description

Today, there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of creatine products to choose from. It seems that making a decision on a given creatine product requires that you be a biochemist or rocket engineer! It can be a confusing and uncertain process, especially when your spending your hard-earned cash. Why can’t there be a simple and effective creatine product that works, but doesn’t break the ‘ol’ bank account?

There can, and there is. Six Star’s advanced creatine formula ensures that you’ll receive the most “bang for your buck.” This unique formula utilizes three different forms of creatine (creatine monohydrate, creatine citrate, and creatine pyruvate) and has a highly effective delivery/transportation system; ensuring that the ingested creatine will be utilized in the body and not wasted like the creatine powders of old.

We all learned from our junior high science classes that when the body is able to use the majority of the substance your taking (in this case, Six Star’s Advanced Creatine), you’re able to reap the maximum number of health benefits the substance has to offer. With Advanced Creatine, better ingredient utilization means that your muscles will be able to perform at their best. So, here’s to training harder and longer, building more muscle and increasing strength, and spending less time recovering!


Pros

As with all creatine products, Advanced Creatine works by increasing the body’s levels of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). ATP can be thought of as our muscles primary energy source. Normally, our body supplies all the ATP we need to live a normal and healthy life. However, when put into stressful situation, like high-intensity/vigorous exercise, we cannot replace ATP fast enough. With its unique ingredient list, Star’s formula seems to do this effectively…perhaps more effectively than its powder-based competitors at a more affordable price.

Advanced Creatine contains 6, 8-Thioctic Acid, or as it more commonly referenced, Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA). ALA is not only an extremely potent and beneficial antioxidant, it also works in the body to increase the Glut-4 transporters outside of muscle cells. What does this mean for you? Theorectically, carbs and creatine will be able to be shuttled right where you want it – away from fat cells and into your muscle cells. In fact studies show that the amount of carbohydrates that are shuttled into your cells can increase by some 50-60% when ALA is simultaneously ingested.

Finally, Six Star also includes 2 grams of muscle supporting nutrients into their formula under the heading, “Rush.” In addition to 6,8-Thioctic Acid, Rush also includes L-Glutamine, L-Glycine, L-Isoleucine, L-Leucine, and L-Valine. Advanced Creatine also affords users potassium, magnesium, sodium, and phosphorus.


Cons

A few cons to consider before purchasing Six Star’s Advanced Creatine Formula:

  • Number of servings: At 20 servings per container, this product won’t last you more than 20 days if taken as directed. For those who believe in creatine loading, this could prove costly.

  • Limited Flavors: You better like Fruit Punch…a lot. Only available in powder: If you are an advocate of pills and not powders, this creatine supplement may not be for you.

  • Water retention: As with all products containing non-esterified forms of creatine, water or fluid retention is always a concern.

Is it for you?

Six Star’s Advanced Creatine should be reserved for the fitness enthusiast or individuals battling certain chronic conditions, as a given disease can also dramatically deplete cellular ATP. Bodybuilders, Power Lifters, and Athletes whom engage in sports that do not require endurance have also shown marked improvements in exercise performance and body composition.


Dosage and Directions

Take 1 serving immediately after you exercise. If you are not exercising that day, have your serving in the morning when you wake up. Preparation: Mix 1 serving (1 rounded scoop) of six star Advanced Creatine with 6 oz of cold water and consume immediately. For best results, use for 8 weeks. To maintain product freshness, store in a cool, dry place. Shake container before use.
