What is Scitec Crea Star?
Crea Star is a supplement of the well-known brand Scitec Nutrition, and it is above all a Creatine product, but not only that.
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 glue or watermelon flavor and in two different sizes, 270g and 540g.
Each serving weighs 9g and we are going to separate the ingredients by their respective matrices and talk a little about each one.
Meetings on 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 is really about, we have also divided the analysis by matrices.
Scitec Crea Star actually uses six types of Creatine in this matrix, but there is a slight 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 serving.
This means that 5 of the 6 Creatines in this supplement are present in a dose equal to or less than 100 mg.
In other words, Scitec Crea Star is a Creatine Monohydrate supplement, not 6 different types of Creatines, because the dose presented for the remaining 5 is practically nil.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, Creatine Monohydrate is a good form of Creatine, but obviously it eludes.
CRE / Absorp Matrix
- Taurine (500mg)
- Glucoronolactone (300mg)
- CreaPep (100mg)
- GlutaZorb (100mg)
Scitec Nutrition places great emphasis on the use of CreaPep and GlutaZorb, and so, that's where we'll start.
What are CreaPep and GlutaZorb?
O CreaPep é o nome dado pela marca a uma mistura de Whey Hidrolizada e Caseína Micelar, numa quantidade de 100 mg por dose.
Both Hydrolyzed Whey and Micellar Casein are milk proteins, and CreaPep at the bottom is no more than 100mg of Protein.
Yes, CreaPep is 100 mg of Protein, only.
GlutaZorb is Glutamine, and unfortunately, also at an extremely low dose.
To put it in perspective, Scitec Nutrition has its own L-Glutamine supplement, and each serving of this supplement is made up of 6g of Glutamine.
The GlutaZorb present in Crea Star, provides only 100 mg of L-Glutamine per dose.
In short, both CreaPep and GlutaZorb are just marketing, and will not have any impact on the results of this supplement.
Taurine, on the other hand, is an amino acid that may have slight benefits in terms of performance, and is present in a reasonable dose.
Para terminar, a Glucoronolactona não parece ter qualquer vantagem quando se fala de muscle mass or performance.
- oxide of Magnesium (109.5mg)
- Malic Acid (10mg)
- Nicotinamide (2.52mg)
Finally, Scitec Crea Star has a so-called 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 an oxide, a form of Magnesium with low bioavailability.
Vitamin B3 is one of several B-complex vitamins, and for each serving you get 15% of the recommended daily allowance 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 9g dose 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 on here, and using the code GVIRTUAL you still get a discount on your entire order.
Scitec Crea Star presents itself as a blend of 6 creatines and 13 active ingredients, but actually, 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 for marketing only.
Of the remaining ingredients, only Taurine can play an active role, although minimal.
To get 5g of Creatine you need to use 9g of this supplement, which costs approximately €0.27 per serving.
Bearing in mind that it is basically just a simple Creatine Monohydrate, the price is high, and you can get a pure Creatine Monohydrate for less than half the price.
Marketing at its best.
