fermented BCAA+ creatine
Make each rep as strong as the first.
The most complete performance product on the market that works to fuel your anaerobic system with 10 grams of fermented BCAAs.
The most complete performance product.
45 seconds may not seem that long, but until you have gone full-out, you have no idea how long a second can be.
fermented BCAA+ creatine fuels your anaerobic system, so each rep or sprint is as strong as the first. Plus a monster 10g of vegan BCAAs keeps the tank topped up, improving muscle synthesis, decreasing lactate levels, and stabilizing blood sugar right through to the end.
Use fermented BCAA+ creatine for CrossFit, weight lifting, team sports, or any workout longer than one hour.
- Product Q&A
See below for the sources of all the ingredients in fermented BCAA+ creatine. Our product is unique in that it is vegan and does not contain any artificial colours, sweeteners or flavours.
fermented L-Glutamine – beet sugar, molasses or corn
fermented L-isoleucine – corn
fermented L-Leucine – corn
fermented L-L-valine – corn
Creatine – synthetic (from glycolonitrile and monomethylamine).
Creatine monohydrate, like most amino acids used in food and natural health product industries, is manufactured by a series of chemical reactions involving the additions of salts, amide (nitrogen and carbon compounds) and catalysts. The reactions cause creatine crystals to form, after which they are isolated and purified to provide only creatine monohydrate. The creatine monohydrate is structurally identical to creatine found in meat, and the absorption of creatine monohydrate, as well as its efficacy, have been reported – including a human study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (2009, Spillane, et al.)
This product, as with all of our products, is made with non-GMO ingredients.
The potency of all of our products is tested and guaranteed until the expiry date.
Our fermented BCAA+ creatine contains 85.9 calories and around 21 grams of protein per 22g scoop. However, BCAAs do not make up a complete protein as they contain 3 amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, valine) and the creatine contains glycine and arginine for a total of 5. If you are looking for a complete protein supplement, we recommend that you check out our proteins+, which contains 25grams of whey protein.
Lo Han is a perennial fruit from a climbing vine, as it is intensely sweet, naturally we use it to sweeten the fermented BCAA+ creatine. It is low-calorie, low glycemic and has antihyperglycemic effects. It does not contain caffeine or other stimulating factors.
The caution is as per Health Canada and is in regards to taking creatine with caffeine. The suggestion that caffeine and creatine be taken away from one another stems from a decade old research report indicating that high-dose synthetic caffeine (approx. 400mg) can diminish some of the immediate benefits of creatine on muscle torque. It should also be pointed out that there is also research (also from a decade ago) showing that caffeine at 400mg enhances the benefits of creatine, as reported by Doherty, et al. “Caffeine is ergogenic after supplementation of oral creatine monohydrate Med Sci Sports Exerc 2002”. So we have two studies with the exact opposite findings!
There are 20 1 scoop servings in each container of fermented BCAA+ creatine.
BCAAs are well absorbed when administered without dextrose. Researchers showed that 5g of BCAA (with a non-caloric sweetener only) increased blood BCAA by 350% within 30 minutes. Still, when it comes to post-workout, we recognize the importance of glucose relatively soon after exertion. A small rise in insulin may help with repair and growth of muscle tissue. However, Genuine Health’s fermented BCAA + creatine is made without added glucose (and certainly it can be taken with a glucose-rich beverage such as grape juice).
There has been some debate over the years concerning the co-administration of BCAAs and glutamine. Early on experts suggested they should be taken separately, while some of the leaders in sports nutrition now state that it makes no difference. To our knowledge there has been no research published on BCAA vs. glutamine related to intestinal absorption and pharmacokinetics. And we have looked high and low. In the absence of such research, we go to the default question which is “does the combo of BCAAs and glutamine work? Here the answer is affirmative. BCAAs and glutamine (taken together) can improve performance and power in strength training reps (e.g. Gonzalez AM, et al. J Sports Sci Med 2011; 10:261-66)
No, all Genuine Health products are free from artificial additives. Genuine Health even goes one step further by ensuring all products are GMO-free!
Although there are a few different theories in regards to this, the most popular belief among sports nutrition enthusiasts is that a ratio of 2:1:1 is the optimal ratio for BCAAs as this resembles the same ratio of BCAAs naturally present in muscle tissue. As we workout we deplete these amino acids (catabolism), and therefore a ratio of 2:1:1 is ideal for replenishing these stores (anabolism). Genuine Health’s fermented BCAA+ creatine is formulated specifically to provide balanced, absorbable, plant-based branch chain amino acids in the most beneficial form and ratio.
