Description
The World's First and Only Pure CONCENTRATED CREATINE
59 times more potent than standard creatines
Micro-Dosing based on body weight
  • STRENGTH
  • ENDURANCE
  • RECOVERY

No Loading - No Side Effects



WHY CREATINE? It's an essential molecule for the body's process of making functional energy. It catalyzes "fuel" for every cell in the body. However, many people's diets often lack natural creatine and therefore supplementation is advised to increase or maintain overall health, and is critical for muscle strength, endurance and recovery when exercising.


WHY CON-CRéT®? Six years of research has produced the most potent and soluble creatine on the market. The result is CREATINE MICRO-DOSING® which maximizes bio-availability and does away with the negative side effects (cramping, water retention, bloating and diarrhea) of other inefficient creatine supplements that require massive doses.


WHY IS CREATINE SOLUBILITY IMPORTANT? Because if it doesn't dissolve, it doesn't get into your bloodstream and into your cells (solubility = potency).


SUPERIOR PLASMA UPTAKE WITHOUT SIDE EFFECTS

For the first time in over twenty years of formal academic creatine research, convincing evidence has shown a significant improvement in creatine plasma uptake.


In this peer-reviewed, Division I university-based, double-blind, placebo-controlled, balanced crossover, in-vitro study, Con-Crét® demonstrated superior uptake when compared to creatine monohydrate and other leading creating products

Health Notes

Food as Medicine: The Pros & Cons

Food as Medicine: The Pros & Cons
Food as Medicine: The Pros & Cons 
: Main Image
People should consider what they eat and drink while taking medication
Everyone knows it: Eating well is almost universally the first-line defense for both managing and treating many diseases. But not everyone realizes that food's "medicinal" properties can also influence medicines in the body-enough that people should consider what they eat and drink while taking medication.

Delicious, nutritious...and therapeutic

Some foods are packed with disease-fighting nutrients that have been shown to help with particular conditions. For example:

  • Grapefruit is a rich source of vitamin C and flavonoids, and may even help lower high cholesterol levels.
  • Pomegranate has been shown to slow atherosclerosis progression.
  • Dark-green leafy vegetables are loaded with lutein (for healthy eyes), magnesium (for a strong heart and reducing negative effects of stress), and fiber (for healthy digestion).

While these tasty, wholesome foods have these proven benefits and more, each is also known to interact with certain prescription medications-some with potentially serious consequences.

What we eat affects body chemistry

Eating to support health makes food a kind of medicine-and viewing it as that is a helpful reminder that what we eat creates chemical reactions in the body. So adding more chemical reactions-such as supplements and drugs-to the mix should be done with some consideration. The types of interactions that food may have with medicines include:

  • Beneficial: Replenishes depleted nutrients: Eating more of a nutrient-rich food may help replenish nutrients when a medication obstructs or depletes it from the body.
  • Beneficial: Side effect prevention: Eating more of a nutrient-rich food may help prevent or reduce the likelihood or severity of a potential side effect caused by a medication. Taking certain medications on an empty stomach can sometimes cause side effects such as nausea, solved by taking the medication with a meal.
  • Beneficial: Positive interaction: Some medications are more easily absorbed when taken with food, improving their action in the body. Some, for example, are fat-soluble, and could be affected by the amount of fat in the diet.
  • Adverse: Reduces drug effectiveness: When taking a medication, a food, nutrient, or other substance should be avoided as it may increase or decrease the medication's absorption and/or activity in the body. Sometimes just having too much food in the stomach can block a medicine's action, which can be avoided by taking it on an empty stomach.
  • Adverse: Negative interaction: When taking certain medications, a food, nutrient, or other substance should be avoided, as the combination may cause undesirable or dangerous interactions. It is generally recommended to avoid foods that have been shown to interact with a medicine.

Spotlight on some highly interactive foods

Drug interactions are not often studied, and animal and test tube studies, which don't always translate to clinical effects, are often the primary sources of information. But following research over time has revealed some foods that should be avoided or taken with care when under medical treatment:

  • Grapefruit and grapefruit juice: By inhibiting an intestinal enzyme that helps metabolize many different drugs, grapefruit allows more of certain drugs to be absorbed, potentially increasing the medication's effectiveness and the toxicity, even if the grapefruit is consumed at a different time than the drug. A few of the long list of interacting drugs include amlodipine, atorvastatin (Lipitor), cyclosporine, diltiazem, felodipine, lovastatin, methylprednisolone, nifedipine, sildenafil, simvastatin (Zocor), and verapamil.
  • Pomegranate and pomegranate juice: This fruit inhibits the same enzyme blocked by grapefruit. While there is much less research on drug-pomegranate interactions than on drug-grapefruit interactions, it would be reasonable to assume that the same interactions that occur with grapefruit would also occur with pomegranate.
  • Dark-green vegetables: These are rich sources of vitamin K, which interferes with the blood-thinner, warfarin. A person taking warfarin does not have to avoid vitamin K-containing foods. However, with the aid of a doctor or a dietitian the average vitamin K intake should be kept relatively constant from week to week.

The key to health is conscientious consumption

While the strength of research varies, there is enough data to suggest a number of other interactions between foods and drugs, such as:

  • Alcohol, which should not be mixed with certain medications
  • High-calcium foods which can block the absorption of some drugs
  • Black tea, some spices, beer, and nutrients such as resveratrol (found in red wine, nuts, and dark chocolate) have been found to have various interactions with medications.

To get the benefits of both a healthful diet and prescription medications, without exposing yourself to potentially harmful interactions, look for credible science-based information and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

    Comments about CONCRET 1008695 ProMera Health™ CON-CRET®:

    My review might not be fair since this is the first creatine I've ever taken. I've been lifting for almost two years now. I started using this only two weeks ago and I went from shoulder pressing 80 - 85lb dumbbells for 3x8 reps to doing 95lb dumbbells for 3x8 reps. Incline bench(I don't flat bench) went from 95lb to 110lb dumbbells.

    I've had gains like this in the past but not quite this fast and I don't think this was just coincidence that it was right as I started taking this. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for. I buy unflavored (super sour if you lick it) and mix it with preworkout. (platinum pre) makes it a bit tangier which I like.

    Tastes nasty alone but great when mixed in with gatorade or some type of sports drink. Take an hour before workout and you'll have one of the best workouts you've had.

          Utilized this product in conjunction with ON whey protein prior to workout. My recovery during the workout improved but no more than when I've taken other creatines. On very intense workouts days or multiple sessions I added it to my Metrx meal replacement prior to bed and again noted more improvement than other brands.

          I take 1 1/2 - 2 scoops 30-60 minutes before every workout.. I am 6' 1" and weigh about 180lbs. In just 3 weeks, I went from benching 165 10x to 180 10x.. It worked great.. But I decided to not take it when I went to workout once, and I couldn't bench 145 10x.. I couldn't do anything without it.. Yes, this is a great product, but if you're not going to be serious about taking it and take it every day that you workout, then don't do it!! Cause once you start it, it gets addictive!!

            I use this product as a pre workout supplement. It aids in faster recovery and helps with strength. You have to be careful about not over doing it, because your muscles will take longer to get to muscle failure.

              I use this as a pre workout supplement. It works great for busting muscle recovery and helps prevent muscle fatigue. Not much of an energy boost but you do feel stronger so be careful not to over push you still can hurt yourself.

                I usually run 3 miles right when i wake up. I weight 180 lbs and take only 1 serving before i run. my times are getting increasingly better. then ill work out later in the day and do either weights and/or swimming. u get steroid like effects without the side effects. i hate the maintence required with creatine monohydrate and it doesnt even work as well as hcl. If u can afford it, this is the best creatine out there

                  I was trying different things to give me that extra pump without giving me all those jitters. Tried bout everything on the market, finally I got it. This product is unbelievable, i just kept looking for more things to do in gym. take a scoop of muscle milk, c4 extreme, concrete, run about a mile or two to warmup and the rest is history. but do give it bout 45 min. to kick in.
