Body Fortress Advanced Creatine: Any Thoughts??
My question is regarding “Body Fortress Advanced Creatine” I picked up a 3 lb tub for $12.00 the other day at Target. By the looks of the ingredients it seems to have a similar profile as muscle tech’s Cell Tech. Just want your guys thoughts and opinions on this supplement and if it seems like a decent and cheaper alternative to cell tech. Below is a link to a PDF with the ingredient profile.

It's probably going to work a lot like cell-tech and other craptastic creatines full of sugar. You could get a much more beneficial insulin spike from carbs other than sugar.
I personally hate Cell Tech. I wouldn't use this creatine either... but that is just me.
Try Neovar by AppNut....GMG760 Version 2.0 ... Back from the dead.

Did you happen to look at the sugar content in it?. Diabetes sucks.

I don't think it's a terrible product - I use it.
I mean, it's cheap, and it's good.
I think it's actually from the same parent company as MuscleTech, this is just another offshoot brand.

muscletech might as well be a bunch of crooks who overhype their products and make exagerated claims illistrated on fancy packaging in bar graphs and illistrations with 7 syllable words that mean absolutely nothing,
I'll never pay for their products, but at least they arent lying on the ingredient label.
the bodyfortress creatine is about the same as cell tech.
at about 12 bucks, ill buy it.
nothing is going to give you an insulin spike that large, and that fast as dextrose will. if you dont mind taking in that much sugar then it is fine.
in one scoop of that stuff, you are getting a lot of dextrose and only 5.5g creatine.
I take a half scoop of the body fortress, then mix it with 5g of pure creatine monohydrate, 3g. of citrulline malate and 5g bulk bcaa.
out of this i get two things: first is a decent dose of dextrose to aid in creatine absorbtion. the other is simply that it is a good thing to mix bcaa and CM powder with.
Malic acid is the same as what gives warheads or sour skittles the "sour taste." mix citrulline malate with vanilla whey and it is disgusting. BUT... mix it with something that tastes like kool aid and it is great.
The stuff isnt bad. i would just add some pure creatine to it.

Man you guys were not lying about that stuff having way too much sugar. So I took two scoops as recomended, afterwards I felt a horrible sugar rush, man was I up I figured it would keep me awake studying for the LSAT, but unfortunetly about an hour later I crashed an fell asleep. I think im gonna do what one of you sugested and mix pure creatine with only one scoop of this stuff

i would never want to take two full scoops of the stuff, i only do a half scooper. and mix with creatine mono.
you can also find body fortess glutamine and pure creatine mono there, ive gotten the glutamine there before. they are as good as any other, though i usually buy the bodytech generic vitamin shoppe brand or order online.
ive tried the whey that is there, tases good to me. it also has a small amount of creatine and things added.
i buy some of my stuff at walmart, flaxseed and fish oil, B complex, melatonin. nothing wrong with that, it's cheap.

No there creatine isnt the best... the body fortress protein isnt all that bad if ur in between shipments of your regular stuff....Its got a little bit of extra fat, a few carbs, but also a decent amount of Tuarine and creatine for the price....doesnt taste very good and u have to use a lot of water/milk to dilute it but it does the job in a pinch
12-17-2008, 05:36 PM
^ I guess i should state that im trying to bulk up, not cut down, thats why the few carbs and fat dont bother me...

you get all your carbs from sugar. if you aren't a fat ass, it wont matter. youre gonna get a insulin spike then crash from any simple sugar carb. I personally have grown up with sugar in my tea and kool aid, so the little amount of sugar thats in b.f. new advanced creatine doesn't bother me.
you also get three types of creatine, amino acids, minerals. It's a good deal, the old stuff from b.f. sucked. but this is good enough to get the job done. I take it pre workout, and protien shake with non fat milk post workout.
the only other carb sup I would spend more money on is "mhp dark matter" or "universal nutrition's Torrent". when im strapped for cash, this gets the job done.

Idk u could argue the sugar helps increase the intake of Creatine mono...but i like not having diabetes and all my teeth....switch to bulk creatine powders. NP has good prices i like CEE, it works for me...but its effectiveness has been debated...

I don't believe that bf is owned by MT, but I am sure ss is.
