Description
Double-Strength Concentrated Creatine

Muscle – Strength – Power

OVER 2X MORE POTENT
Delivers 3.5g Creatine HCl Plus Fenugreek Extract

World's First Double-Strength Concentrated Creatine
CreaCore™ represents the evolution of the concentrated creatine powder. Dosed with over 2x more creatine HCl per scoop, CreaCore™ is also the first and only creatine formula to utilize a scientifically studied dose of fenugreek extract for improved effects. Don't just take any creatine, choose one with superior ingredients. Choose CreaCore™.

More Creatine per Serving
Unlike the other concentrated creatine powder that recommends a "micro-dosing" protocol that can have you taking up to 4 scoops a day, CreaCore™ delivers more creatine HCl in just 2 concentrated scoops. Not only does every bottle of CreaCore™ deliver more value, it also delivers results supported by scientific research.

Increased Muscle Growth and Strength
CreaCore™ is formulated with a precise ratio of creatine and fenugreek extract (3500mg:900mg). In a 2011 published clinical study, subjects supplementing with this combination significantly increased their bench press one-rep max, leg press one-rep max and lean mass – all without having to add extra carbohydrates.

Improved Creatine Uptake
Researchers believe that ingesting fenugreek in combination with creatine may be an effective way for improving creatine uptake similarly to dextrose, without having to ingest large amounts of simple carbohydrates.

Super Concentrated Formula – No Cycling, No Loading and No Bloating

Health Notes

Lemon Balm

Lemon Balm
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Colic
Dose: 1/2 cup (118 ml) of tea up to three times daily

Carminatives are a class of herbs commonly used for infants with colic. These herbs tend to relax intestinal spasms.

Chamomile is a carminative with long history of use as a calming herb and may be used to ease intestinal cramping in colicky infants. A soothing tea made from chamomile, vervain, licorice, fennel, and lemon balm has been shown to relieve colic more effectively than placebo.1 In this study, approximately 1/2 cup (150 ml) of tea was given during each colic episode up to a maximum of three times per day.

Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

A combination of valerian and lemon balm has been tested for improving sleep. A small preliminary trial compared the effect of valerian root extract (320 mg at bedtime) and an extract of lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) with that of the sleeping drug triazolam (Halcion).1 The effectiveness of the herbal combination was similar to that of Halcion, but only the Halcion group felt hung over and had trouble concentrating the next day. A double-blind trial found that a combination of valerian and lemon balm, taken over a two-week period, was effective in improving quality of sleep.2

Another double-blind trial found a combination of 360 mg valerian and 240 mg lemon balm taken before bed improved reported sleep quality in one-third of the participants.3

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Carminatives (also called aromatic digestive tonics or aromatic bitters) may be used to relieve symptoms of indigestion, particularly when there is excessive gas. It is believed that carminative agents work, at least in part, by relieving spasms in the intestinal tract.1

Lemon balm is a carminative herb used traditionally for indigestion.2 Lemon balm, usually taken as tea, is prepared by steeping 2-3 teaspoons of leaves in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes in a covered container. Three or more cups per day are consumed immediately after meals. Three to five milliliters of tincture can also be used three times per day.

Hyperthyroidism
Dose: Refer to label instructionsFlavonoids, phenolic acids, and other compounds appear to be responsible for lemon balm's anti-herpes and thyroid-regulating actions. Test tube studies have found that lemon balm blocks attachment of antibodies to the thyroid cells that cause Grave's disease (hyperthyroidism).1 The brain's signal to the thyroid (thyroid-stimulating hormone or TSH) is also blocked from further stimulating the excessively active thyroid gland in this disease. However, clinical trials proving lemon balm's effectiveness in treating Grave's disease are lacking.

Parts Used & Where Grown

The lemon balm plant originated in southern Europe and is now found throughout the world. The lemony smell and pretty white flowers of the plant have led to its widespread cultivation in gardens. The leaves, stems, and flowers of lemon balm are used medicinally.

    Comments about MuscleTech® CreaCore™ - Lemon Lime:

    I received a sample pack of CeaCore to test out. I really liked how the dose was so small put stil packed the same punch as regular creatine. I found it to work on par with normal high quality creatine but like i said, the smaller dose was really nice.

For the price you can't go wrong getting one the best products on the market. The new flavors are simply amazing! Some of the BEST tasting products out on the market! Great job MuscleTech!

But when it comes to results and fitness, it is overall results over taste EVERY time.

                Comments about MuscleTech® CreaCore™ - Lemon Lime:

                I have been trying to gain weight for the longest time now, i've tried multiple creatine products to see some gains in the gym as well as in size. muscle tech sent me a free trial tub of CreaCore and so far i've seen better gains then any other ive tried. The taste isn't the best though but it's worth the results.

                Ill have to add that the taste gets a lot better after the first few times.
