Why is it impossible to find Creatine Pyruvate?
I tryed it from a Swedish Webshop, and its the best creatine i've ever tryed. Its supposed to be absorbed 28% more effectivly in musclecells, than regular creatine mono,
Why aren't NP selling it on bulk????
Heres a study:
effects of creatine pyruvate and creatine citrate on performance during high intensity exercise
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: A double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study was performed to evaluate the effect of oral creatine pyruvate (Cr-Pyr) and creatine citrate (Cr-Cit) supplementation on exercise performance in healthy young athletes. METHODS: Performance during intermittent handgrip exercise of maximal intensity was evaluated before (pretest) and after (posttest) 28 days of Cr-Pyr (5 g/d, n = 16), Cr-Cit (5 g/d, n = 16) or placebo (pla, 5 g/d, n = 17) intake. Subjects performed ten 15-sec exercise intervals, each followed by 45 sec rest periods. RESULTS: Cr-Pyr (p<0.001) and Cr-Cit (p<0.01) significantly increased mean power over all intervals. Cr-Cit increased force during the first and second interval (p<0.01) compared to placebo. The effect of Cr-Cit on force decreased over time and the improvement was not significant at the sixth and ninth interval, whereas Cr-Pyr significantly increased force during all intervals (p<0.001). Cr-Pyr (p<0.001) and Cr-Cit (p<0.01) resulted in an increase in contraction velocity, whereas only Cr-Pyr intake significantly (p<0.01) increased relaxation velocity. Oxygen consumption measured during rest periods significantly increased with Cr-Pyr (p<0.05), whereas Cr-Cit and placebo intake did not result in significant improvements. CONCLUSION: It is concluded that four weeks of Cr-Pyr and Cr-Cit intake significantly improves performance during intermittent handgrip exercise of maximal intensity and that Cr-Pyr might benefit , due to activity of the aerobic metabolism.PMID: 18269769 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
