KING of CREATINE has been CROWNED!
Creapure of Germany, the world's best creatine material supplier,
has licensed ASN Advanced Sports Nutrition to display the
Creapure Logo on the NANO Creatine Products. This is proof
of the high standards ASN Advanced Sports Nutrition set in
the sports nutrition industry. ASN Advanced Sports Nutrition
was the first company in the world to make a scientific break-through
with NANO-Creatine. A technology which makes all other
creatines a thing of the past. A technology which has revolutionized
the sports industry as we know it! With so many different
creatine products on the market, one creatine still shines
above the rest in regards to absorbability, stability, dissolvability
and performance.... NANO Creatine, pure nanorised Creapure
Creatine. Measured at an unheard of 3000 mesh.
does NANO Creatine Work?
Creatine is present in the muscular tissue of many vertebrates,
including man. It is a precursor of creatine phosphate, which
in turn, acts as an energy store in the muscles: creatine
phosphate is a compound with high energy bonds and serves
to maintain the supply of ATP necessary for muscle contractions.
Muscle energy is enhanced and muscle endurance is greater,
creating muscle growth. Creatine is a natural substance
that is also found in many food sources as well as stored
within muscle tissue. During an aerobic exercise or
high intensity sports such as; weight lifting, sprinting,
football, etc....The contraction of muscle takes place without
the use of oxygen. Muscle metabolize or release energy
by the means of a chemical reaction of a substance called
ATP (Adenosine Tri-phosphate). Stored ATP within muscle is
limited to approximately 10 second supply and must be constantly
re-synthesized for continuous maximum muscle contractions.
Creatine is an integral part of the chemical reaction
to re-synthesizing ATP. The more creatine your muscle can
hold, the more fuel you have for re-synthesizing ATP and the
result will be explosive muscular power, increased stamina,
enhanced and greater intensity with less muscular fatigue.
Scientists found that our bodies can actually store more
creatine in our muscle cells than we produce. Approximately
120g of creatine is found in a 70 kg male, 95% in the skeletal
muscle. Total creatine exists in muscle as both free creatine
(40%) and phosphocreatine (60%). It appears that supplemental
creatine monohydrate increases muscle total creatine, including
both free and phosphocreatine. The average human body can
store in excess around 40g of total creatine ( free + Phosphocreatine
). Phosphocreatine is the direct precursor for your energy
system while free creatine is the direct precursor for phosphocreatine.
This not only has the effect of increasing the availability
of creatine to be used in your energy cycle but also it increases
the fluid within the muscle cell associated with the osmotic
effect of increased intramuscular free creatine. This increases
the muscle cell size in which more nutrients can be transported
and stored within the muscle to be used for energy and protein
synthesis, increasing exercise performance, recovery and muscle
Creatine is not only beneficial for increasing performance
during exercise and recovering properly after exercise, it
also has a lot of other health benefits as well. There are
numerous scientific studies which confirm this. It is of great
benefit to Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) patients as CHF
patients exhibit endogenous intracellular Creatine levels
approximately 20% lower than normal and supplementary Creatine
helps to restore normal Creatine levels. This is because some
of the body’s Creatine pool is stored in the Heart.
Creatine halts the further progression of Gyrate Atrophy of
the Choroid and Retina. It counteracts the Cachexia associated
with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) – because
it helps increases Muscle mass and Muscle Strength in AIDS
patients. Fibromyalgia patients have significantly lower levels
of Creatine than healthy people and supplemental Creatine
helps to restore endogenous Creatine levels to normal. Creatine
also helps to protect the Brain from Concussion and accelerates
the healing of the Brain after Concussion. It has also been
associated with increased brain function. Maintaining optimum
levels of creatine within the body seems to be a major health
benefit for general health and wellbeing. This not only makes
it a necessity for sports people, but all people alike.
NANO-Creatine is made using a process ASN have developed
called ‘NANO Technology - a revolutionary technology that
takes nutritional and sports supplements to the next level.
is NANO Technology?
NANO Technology is a patented advanced process which miniaturizers
any powdered materials, such as creatine, glutamine, amino
acids, foods, herbs, vitamins & minerals etc. into molecule
sized particles, over 1250 times smaller than a micronizing
process. It is aptly named "NANO", which is one
step down from the measurement micro. As with all manufactured
raw nutritional materials, a single particle may be made up
of thousands of molecules of that ingredient. In regards to
creatine, one particle of Micronized Creatine may be made
up of one thousand molecules of creatine. To make NANO Creatine
we take the highest grade Creapure Micronized Creatine from
Germany, the purest in the world and put it through our revolutionary
NANO Technology process which enables us to separate the individual
molecules of the creatine from the particles of the Micronized
material. This process not only makes the material smaller
in size but also eliminates any other impurities within the
original material that were part of the Micronized particle.
The end product is a material that is not only smaller in
size but also of higher purity. Normal micronised creatine
is produced from between 100-300 mesh. NANO Creatine is around
3000 mesh! Mesh is a unit of measurement used in determining
particle sizes. The higher the Mesh rating, the smaller the
particles. Click for Mesh Standards
With the particles being so tiny, over 1250
times greater than a micronized process, the efficiency of
absorption is increased. Because of their NANO size,
they start to behave more like ions, becoming very electro-static
in nature and therefore easily pass through cell membranes,
allowing assimilation straight into the bloodstream.
Compare NANO Creatine against
Micronized Creatine under an electron microscope.
See the huge difference in the particle size.
The smaller the particles of any substance, the easier it
is to be absorbed. Your skin, digestive tract and under your
tongue contain membranes that are selective in what they let
through. Acting like tiny filters, only the smallest of particles
will be absorbed straight away. NANO Technology allows
this to happen. Quicker digestion and faster utilization is
a certainty with ASN’s revolutionizing NANO-Creatine.
Once you have processed the creatine using NANO Technology,
you create an even purer creatine. The more pure the creatine,
the less solvents and impurities it will contain.
Stomach Cramps and Upsets
You have probably noticed that when you mix creatine monohydrate
most of the particles will sink straight to the bottom of
the glass. These undissolved particles cause you to
have stomach discomfort. With micronized Creatine being of
smaller particles, some creatine dissolves but most stays
suspended and then after the particles settle to the bottom.
The bio-availability of creatine has always been a
concern. Even though it has a lot of health and performance
enhancing benefits, the raw manufactured material is fairly
large on a pharmacokinetic scale and it is not very soluble
in liquid. Its solubility in room temperature water is around
1.4% and the raw material particle sizes vary from 100-500
microns in size. Because of this, oral consumption of creatine
has caused adverse side effects. Scientific studies have been
done on the pharmacokinetics (the study of the absorption,
uptake, distribution, metabolism and excretion of substances
introduced into the body) of micronised creatine powder and
it was found that only 0.2-3% of the creatine ingested was
absorbed over a 90 minute period. That is to say if you consume
5 grams of creatine, only a maximum of 150mg of creatine is
going to be absorbed over a 90 minute period. That means there
is still going to be 4.85 grams of creatine sitting in your
gut. Because of this inefficiency of absorption, fluid is
then drawn into your digestive system, giving you a bloated
look. Because fluid has been robbed from your body and into
your digestive system, certain effects may take place. Loss
of fluid from muscles causes dehydration and cramps during
exercise. Excess fluid in the digestive system causes stress
on the intestinal tract leading to increased bowel movements
and diarrhea. Because water balance has been interrupted within
the body, overcompensation occurs within the rest of the body
after the non-absorbed creatine has been excreted to try and
rebalance fluid levels, causing excess 'puffiness' of the
tissues, leading to a bloated look.
Because of the inefficiency of absorption of creatine it
was devised to take it in divided doses during the day and
to do this for 5 days, so at the end of the five days your
body will be ‘loaded up’ with the creatine. Then
thereafter a ‘maintenance’ dose was suggested
to maintain saturation within your body. The unfortunate effect
of this however, is that because of poor bio-availability
of the creatine, most of it will end up going down the toilet,
along with your hard earned cash. That is to say if you spend
around $80 for 2kg of creatine, only around 200g at most will
be absorbed and utilised by your body. This means in regards
to usable product you’re paying around $80 for 200g
1/2 as much as Micronized Creatine
With NANO Creatine because of its small particle size you
get 100% bio-availability with no side effects! 100% of the
NANO Creatine you take will be absorbed into your body. That’s
to say if you spend $80 for 500g of NANO Creatine, 500g will
be absorbed and utilised by your body. More than double the
amount when compared to 2kg of the standard variety. NANO
Creatine is more efficient, of higher purity and more cost
effective when it comes to comparing it with Micronized Creatine.
