What is Scitec Crea Star?
Crea Star is a supplement of the well-known brand Scitec Nutrition, and is above all a product of Creatine, but not only.
According to the brand, it is a supplement with a matrix of 6 types of Creatine, among other ingredients, totaling 13 active ingredients.
It is available in cola or watermelon flavor and in two different sizes, 270g and 540g.
Each serving weighs 9g and we will separate the ingredients by their respective matrices and talk a little about each one.
Meetings here the nutritional table and the ingredients used according to the official website of Scitec Nutrition.
This supplement, like a large part of the Scitec Nutrition line, is subdivided into several matrices.
To make the evaluation of this supplement simpler, and to understand what it really is, we also divided the analysis by matrices.
Scitec Crea Star actually uses six types of Creatine in this matrix, but there is a small problem.
If we look at the list of ingredients, all Creatines, except normal monohydrate, appear after GlutaZorb.
GlutaZorb is present in an amount of 100 mg per dose.
This means that 5 of the 6 Creatines in this supplement are present at a dose of 100 mg or less.
In other words, Scitec Crea Star is a supplement of Creatine Monohydrate, and not of 6 different types of Creatines, because the dose presented for the remaining 5 is practically zero.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, Creatine Monohydrate is a good form of Creatine, but obviously, it is deceiving.
CRE / Absorp Matrix
- Taurine (500mg)
- Glucoronolactone (300mg)
- CreaPep (100mg)
- GlutaZorb (100mg)
Scitec Nutrition places great emphasis on the use of CreaPep and GlutaZorb, and that is why we are going to start.
What is CreaPep and GlutaZorb?
CreaPep is the name given by the brand to a mixture of Hydrolyzed Whey and Micellar Casein, in an amount of 100 mg per dose.
Both Hydrolyzed Whey and Micellar Casein are milk proteins, and CreaPep at the bottom is just 100 mg of Protein.
Yes, CreaPep is 100 mg of Protein, just.
GlutaZorb is Glutamine, and unfortunately, also in an extremely low dose.
To put it in perspective, Scitec Nutrition has its own L-Glutamine supplement, and each dose of this supplement consists of 6g of Glutamine.
The GlutaZorb present in Crea Star, provides only 100 mg of L-Glutamine per dose.
In summary, both CreaPep and GlutaZorb are nothing more than marketing, and will not have any impact on results of this supplement.
Taurine, on the other hand, is an amino acid that can have slight performance benefits, and is present in a reasonable dose.
Finally, Glucoronolactone does not appear to have any advantage when it comes to muscle mass or performance.
- Oxide Magnesium (109.5mg)
- Malic Acid (10mg)
- Nicotinamide (2.52mg)
Finally, Scitec Crea Star has a support matrix, which contains Magnesium, Malic Acid and Vitamin B3 (Nicotinamide).
Magnesium is a mineral and is present in Crea Star in the form of oxide, a form of low bioavailability Magnesium.
Vitamin B3 is one of several B vitamins, and for each dose you get 15% of the recommended daily dose of this vitamin.
Malic Acid is in such a low dose that it is not even mentioned by the brand in its advertising.
How to take?
After the 5 days of the loading phase, in which you use 20 grams per day, the dose changes to 3-6g, once a day.
If you do not intend to do the loading phase, start with this dose.
The most common number is usually 5g, however, if you are very thin, just 3g to 4g will give you good results, while if you are heavier, you can use 6g.
In the case of this supplement, each dose of 9g corresponds to 5g of Creatine and therefore, the ideal is to use one dose per day.
It is important to highlight, supplementation is done every day, that is, nothing to take only on training days.
Where to buy?
You find this supplement available here, and using the code GVIRTUAL you still get a discount on your entire order.
Scitec Crea Star presents itself as a mixture of 6 creatines and 13 active ingredients, but in reality, the story is a little different.
As you saw in the analysis, of the 6 creatines, only one is in a really active dose, while the other 5 are used as marketing, only.
Of the remaining ingredients, only Taurine can play an active role, albeit minimal.
To get 5g of Creatine you need to use 9g of this supplement, which costs approximately € 0.27 per dose.
Bearing in mind that in the end it is just a simple Creatine Monohydrate, the price is high, and you get for less than half the price a pure Creatine Monohydrate.
Marketing at its best.
