The last few months saw a flood of creatine formulas launched into the market – RedCon1 Tango, Ghost Size and several others. Each of these products is trying to take a different twist on the creatine story, and bpi’s best creatine defined is joining this party. Bpi Best Creatine Defined promises the power of its original BPI formula but with new features for muscle hardening, defining, and volumizing.
The product will be available in a 40 serving tub. With a recommended serving of 1 scoop (7.5g) per day. To their original best creatine, BPI introduced a new blend of three ingredients 1.1g mixture of r-lipoic acid, potassium glycerol gluconate and berberine HCl. Let’s break down the BEST CREATINE DEFINED!
BEST CREATINE BLEND (4g) Creatine works primarily by increasing ATP availability within the body’s muscle cells. Creatine is also osmolytic, meaning it can draw more water into the cell. This is the cause of the relatively sudden increase in muscle size. Bpi is not the first (nor the last) to introduce a bunch of different creatine types with the promise of getting more ‘power’ than plain creatine monohydrate.
DEFINING & HARDENING AGENT PROPRIETARY BLEND (1.1g)
This is really where the ‘defined’ comes in, Yet again this is a proprietary blend, so we can only help you figure out what are these ingredients can potentially do for you.
Potassium is an electrolyte or a mineral in your blood as well as other body fluids that can carry an electric charge.
R-lipoic acid contributes to mitochondrial energy creation in cells. As part of the cellular energy process, studies have found that lipoic acid may make the post-exercise recovery period easier by helping the body’s responses that produce the sore feeling.
Berberine is a yellow-colored alkaloid compound that is found in several different plants. Because of it’s ability to inhibit fat storage and also improve the function of hormones, separate research has concluded that berberine has potential clinical application in reducing visceral fat and controlling central obesity.
Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid. Unlike most amino acids, it is not used by the body to synthesize proteins. It works together with histidine to produce carnosine. Which is stored in your skeletal muscles to reduces lactic acid accumulation in your muscles during exercise. This helps to improved performance. 3.2g of Beta Alanine is the recommended dosage for full effect.
The Label’s Bottom Line
The introduction of a defining and hardening blend should help move nutrients directly to your muscle cells. And the creatine blend also has 2 great key feature NO BLOATING & NO LOADING PHASE which is always a good feature for a creatine supplement. But, looking at the actual dosages, we can’t say if there’s enough of these ingredients to make a difference!
BPI – Best creatine defined is available in 3 flavors. Blue Crush, Cherry Lime and Sour Candy.
we tried Blue Crush flavor which has a nice taste! And also mixes well. Actually, it tastes much better than most of the BCAA products out there.
Best creatine defined is available at $36.99 for a 40 serving tub. Which is A LOT of money for a creatine. Compare that with a creatine MONO that you can get 100 servings for sub $12, it is hard to justify at this price. The best way to get a great deal on BPI – Best Creatine Defined or any other supplement, is to keep on checking our site, as we continue to hunt down the best deals for everything fitness.
Is it THE BEST CREATINE? That’s yet to be defined (get it ? :)). Anyway the bottom line is this, Based on our experience it that feel that it is working better than just mono creatine, did we see dramatic differences? No. But better. But at the listed price or anything above $20 we don’t think it is worth the differences…so if you get it on a deal, give it a shot otherwise stick with monohydrate.
