Target Response KreAlkalyn & Cordyceps Matrix
KREACEPS-XS™ now combines the 100% stable and absorbable, pH correct™ creatine, Kre-Alkalyn® with CORDYGEN5™, a solid state fermented, super potency blend of cordyceps extracts with Rhodiola Rosea, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid and Vanadyl Sulfate to create the most potent, safe, effective, non hormonal, ATP promoting, strength and endurance enhancing supplement to date.
Kre-Alkalyn® is a patented and pH correct™ creatine product with 100% stability and absorption. Creatine monohydrate has been proven through more than a decade of research to enhance strength, endurance, and subsequent athletic performance*. The disadvantages of other forms of creatine are their extremely short term stability, rapid conversion into the toxic bi-product creatinine when exposed to liquid and subsequent poor absorption into the bloodstream. Conventional creatine monohydrate has been shown convert to toxic creatinine byproduct by 100% in as little as 43 seconds, WOW! Kre-Alkalyn® cannot convert to the toxic by-product creatinine which is responsible for all of creatine’s documented side effects, including nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea and bloating (subcutaneous water retention). Kre-Alkalyn® provides all of the strength, endurance and performance enhancing benefits of creatine without the unwanted and risky side effects; In fact Kre-Alkalyn® is absorbed so efficiently into the bloodstream that 1 gram of Kre-Alkalyn® is equivalent to ingesting 10 grams of conventional creatine powder.
CORDYGEN5™ is a blend of pure, organic, solid state fermented (BioMass method), super potent concentrated extracts of Cordyceps Sinensis Alohaensis Hybrid, CS-4 Cordyceps Sinensis, Cordyceps Militaris, Cordyceps Sobolifera and Cordyceps Ophioglossoides and is exclusive to Millennium Sport Technologies. CORDYGEN5™ has the ability to enhance oxygen utilization and ATP like no other cordyceps blend available. You are probably thinking “I’ve tried cordyceps before and it really wasn’t anything to write home about”. Well you haven’t tried the CORDYGEN5™ blend. The problem with nearly all of the cordyceps on the market is that it is imported from overseas manufacturers who have rapid cultured inferior products. We’ve tested the vast majority of cordyceps on the market and they simply don’t stack up. For example, most CS-4 on the market is cultured incorrectly yielding an ineffective product. CS-4 can be labeled as CS-4 whether cultured for 6 days or 6 months. The potency of the CORDYGEN5™ cordyceps blend comes from the proprietary combination of cordyceps strains and the way these strains are cultured. The competition simply doesn’t come close.
Almost all cordyceps strains are cultured in a process called liquid cultivation or fermentation. This process uses a liquid substrate to grow the cordyceps mycelium in a very speedy 5-18 days, yielding low levels of active constituents. The cordyceps mycelium is then harvested by filtering out the liquid medium, drying it and grinding it into a powder. By filtering out the liquid medium many of the quality compounds secreted by the cordyceps are lost. It is usually further processed using hot water or solvents resulting in the loss of nearly 90% of the active constituents of which it had few of to begin with due to the fast liquid culturing process.
CORDYGEN5™ is grown using a solid state (solid substrate) or biomass method. This is a much slower culturing method where the cordyceps is grown on a sterilized solid medium such as organic grain. The cordyceps is allowed to consume the solid substrate while being subjected to temperature and gas changes (O2 and CO2) to simulate its native high altitude conditions. This process typically takes between 22 and 24 weeks (nearly 6 months) before the cordyceps is ready for harvest. When the cordyceps mycelium is ready to harvest it has consumed more than 98% of the solid medium in which it was cultured on and produced active constituents from every facet of its life cycle. The remaining 2% substrate is then removed yielding 100% pure cordyceps. The cordyceps strains are then super concentrated, extracted and blended into CORDYGEN5™. This process allows CORDYGEN5™ to exceed the potency of wild cordyceps exponentially. CORDYGEN5™ can exceed the potency of other cordyceps products on the market by a whopping 95 times (95X).
For Thousands of years Traditional Chinese Medicine has used cordyceps to support healthy kidney, lung (respiration) and heart function, low male and female libido, fatigue, immune disorders, for general health and appetite and for promoting longevity. Tibetan Sherpas use cordyceps and rhodiola to enhance energy production and oxygen utilization when climbing Mt. Everest. In 1993 the Chinese Women’s National Track Team used cordyceps to set 3 world records by staggering margins. In this country its use has been researched for it’s enhancement of energy production with applications in athletic performance and fatigue. Cordyceps has been clinically proven to enhance ATP production, increase oxygen utilization, improve VO2 Max, increase SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase) activity, support immune function, support healthy kidney function and improve glucose metabolism.
General Nutritional Components of Cordyceps
Cordyceps contains a wide range of compounds considered nutritional. It contains all of the essential amino acids, vitamins B1, B2, B12, E, and K, a wide range of sugars including mono, di- and oligiosaccharides and many different polysaccharides (some of amazing and unique complexity), proteins, sterols, nucleosides, and a wide range of trace elements (K, Na, Ca, Mg, Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, Pi, Se, Al, Si, Ni, Sr, Ti, Cr, Ga, V, and Zr.).
Major Bioactive Constituents of Cordyceps
Cordycepin [3'-deoxyadenosine] and cordycepic acid [d-mannitol] were the initial bioactive compounds first isolated from the Cordyceps militaris species (Cunningham et al., 1951). A study by Chen and Chu (1996), announced the characterization of cordycepin [3’ deoxyadenosine] and 2'-deoxyadenosine, using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and infrared spectroscopy (IR) in an extract of Cordyceps sinensis. Other components found included various saccharides, and polysaccharides of varied and amazing complexities (including cyclofurans - cyclic rings of five-carbon sugars of unknown function), beta-glucans, beta-mannans, cross-linked beta-mannan polymers, and complex polysaccharides consisting of both 5 and 6 carbon sugars joined together in branching chains comprising both alpha- and beta- bonds. Many nucleosides have been found in cordyceps, including uridine, several distinct structures of deoxyuridines, adenosine, 2’,3’dideoxyadenosine (which is marketed worldwide as a primary antiretroviral drug for the treatment of HIV infections under the names Didanosine™, Videx™ and others) hydroxyethyladenosine, cordycepin [3’deoxyadenosine], cordycepin triphosphate, guanidine, deoxyguanidine, and a variety of other very unique altered and deoxygenated nucleosides that are found no where else in nature. The high “glyconutrient” content of the CORDYGEN5™ blend doubles as a second delivery system for the Kreaceps-XS™.
Rhodiola Rosea is categorized as an adaptogen due to its ability to increase resistance to stressors, rhodiola is used traditionally in Eastern Europe and in Asia to stimulate the nervous system, enhance performance (ATP Production), reduce fatigue, improve sleep, reduce depression and prevent altitude sickness (through enhanced oxygen utilization). It is suggested that the plant is useful in treating asthenic (having a slender, weak, lightly muscled physique) conditions subsequent to intense physical or intellectual strain, influenza or other viral illness. It is believed to have cardiopulmonary protective effects as well.
Rhodiola's stimulating and adaptogenic effects are attributed to p-tyrosol, one of several antioxidants, along with organic acids and flavonoids, and to compounds such as salidroside (syn: rhodioloside and rhodosin), rhodioniside, rhodiolin, rosin, rosavin, rosarin, and rosiridin. Rhodiola is believed to influence levels of biogenic monoamines such as serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine in the cerebral cortex, brain stem, and hypothalamus. It has been reported to prevent both catecholamine release and subsequent cyclic AMP elevation in the myocardium (heart) and the stress-induced depletion of adrenal catecholamines. Rhodiola's adaptogenic activity may also rely on induction of opioid peptide biosynthesis and activation of central and peripheral opioid receptors. These are all reasons why rhodiola makes a welcome addition to Kreaceps-XS™.
R-Alpha Lipoic Acid is not only one of the very best and most universal antioxidants but it also is the perfect dietary supplement for improving insulin response/sensitivity and blood sugar control. Research studies have shown that the cheaper synthetic RS form of alpha-lipoic acid does not deliver the full beneficial effects of the R form. Millennium Sport Technologies uses only R-isomer alpha lipoic acid in Kreaceps-XS™. R-ALA provides control for the destructive effects of glycation so you can obtain the anabolic and ergogenic effects of improved insulin response/sensitivity. R-ALA works with the glyconutrients in CORDYGEN5™ and Vanadyl Sulfate to drive the KreAlkalyn® into the muscle cell at an accelerated rate, providing amazing, strength, endurance, performance and muscle pumps.
Vanadyl Sulfate is believed to play a role in helping to regulate the body's healthy blood sugar levels, similar to insulin. Studies show that vanadyl sulfate mainly helps the muscle cells uptake glucose (instead of fat cells (adipocytes) uptaking glucose). Specifically by mimicking the actions of insulin, vanadyl sulfate forces more proteins, aminos and carbohydrates directly into muscles creating a more anabolic state with phenomenal vascularity and pumps.
