Why I think Con-Cret is some BS
Okay, this is second creatine that I'm targeting in my rant on monohydrate mockeries. Trust me, this **** is WAYYY more bull**** than Kre-Alkalyn. Go to Con-Cret's website, it's not hard to find. Click on studies. First off, there is only one study, and it's the BIGGEST LOAD OF HORSE **** I've ever read.
It was conducted by Vireo Systems, which isn't even a real company. If you look at their website (vireosystems.com), it is only one page, and the page is basically just pictures of test tubes and people exercising. There is contact info at the bottom, but no one answers the phone, and the address listed belongs to a company called Besway Systems, which makes paint remover.
So what exactly was done in this "study"? Pretty much nothing. The "scientists" simply dissolved creatine monohydrate and Con-Cret in water, then filtered the water and measured how much creatine was sorted out by the filter. Apparently 59 times more Con-Cret was left in the water. So Promera Health (the company that makes Con-Cret) claims that because of this experiment, Con-Cret must be 59 times more potent than creatine monohydrate. Not only is this a completely distorted conclusion based on the experiment, it was conducted by a fake company, so how do we know that any of it is true?
If you buy Con-Cret after reading this, you must be one dumb mofo. Sorry in advance if my article offends anyone :P.

Its true that the study leaves out ALOT of valuable information in order to base an opinion, but there may, and I say that hesitantly, may be some merit to the smaller particle, as evidenced by the filter test, as being a more readily absorbed creatine.
Whether or not this translates into a superior absorbing creatine is yet to be seen, unless anyone can come forth with some proper research.

And like I said, the "research" was conducted by a clearly fake company, so the claim of a smaller, more soluble particle may not even be true.

have you spoken to anyone who has tried the product?
I have, and I know many others who have as well. Reviews are mixed....kinda like any other supplement on the market

I understand what you are saying. However, based on my experience then CM is totally ineffective, since all it does is mess with my stomach.
Again, to say something is totally worthless disregards those who have had success.

Just asking here, it does seem odd and out of left field.

I absolutely see your point. How many products do we know that are like that, confusing companies with incredibly vague research. He isn't saying that this product IS bad, just that the research and company history are too vague in order to conclusively prove it, and as such, people should be cautious and at least experiment. We see the same phenomenon with krealkalyn. So much research says just stick with creatine monohydrate. But once a company comes out with a flashy scientifical sounding research project, people convince themselves it works.
So basically, research, experiment, share.

I personally like con -cret I have had awesome results with it. Mike Bridges uses it and hes a beast. The Rock ueses it too.

Endorsements differ from actual usage. While they may use it, just be hesitant when they say they do.
04-19-2010, 02:25 PM
Not a endoursement it was in a muscle and fitness article when they asked what the Rock uses he mentioned con cret

For the love of god people, just get creapure.
Think of it this way:
Creatine Monohydrate is one of the/if not the most studied performance enhancer on the legal supplement market. It is proven effective and a good part of any supplement regimine. Now where all these enhanced creatines come from is marketing. Any company and every company can put out a creatine product, so how does one sell it over the competition? By making it seem better and backing it by a study, which in most cases are very bias. Think CEE...complete and utter bull****. Stick with creatine monohydrate, and go for a pure version of it. Creapure is a very pure version of Creatine Monohydrate, and that is marketing I can get behind. It is cheap, it works, and you KNOW it isnt some new pseudo science.
