We're celebrating the 12th anniversary of Creatine Hydrochloride(Creatine-HCl), the unique form of creatine that we developed in 2003. Creatine-HCl revolutionized the creatine market. Supported by four patents, Creatine-HCl continues today as the reigning champion among all other creatines. SOLUBILITY ADVANTAGE OVER CREATINE MONOHYDRATE: Studies show a 68-fold increase in aqueous solubility for creatine hydrochloride salt compared to standard creatine monohydrate. Solubility is of great significance because a creatine needs to be soluble to enter the bloodstream and the muscles. PLASMA UPTAKE ADVANTAGE OVER CREATINE MONOHYDRATE: Studies show that Creatine HCL has a FDA bio-equivalence of up to 70% greater plasma uptake than creatine monohydrate. You typically get what you pay for. Some companies with products containing Creatine HCl get cheap, off-spec, or illegal product from overseas .Besides being unethical, many of the shipments come in contaminated and way below quality standards. Off-spec material can put your health at risk. Other creatine formulations can cause gastrointestinal distress, diarrhea, cramping, muscle tears, bloating and worse. With Creatine-HCl you can say goodbye to all that and hello to uninterrupted high-intensity workouts. Creatine-HCl will boost your strength and endurance and improve recovery time.* Vireo Systems holds 4 patents for Creatine HCl, and manufactures it and other health-related products under strict guidelines. All products go through Vireo's FDA-compliant, GMP, HACCP, and SQF certified facility to insure product quality and safety.
