ModernCREATINE: USPLabs Creatine Analyzed

Just announced on Facebook![1] USPLabs will be coming out with Modern CREATINE, a new creatine powder supplement that combines two (or more) of our favorite ingredients:

Modern Creatine

Glancing at the label, you can see that this will contain both creatine and betaine, two incredibly effective ingredients.

Peaking at the label, we can definitely see 3g creatine and 2.5g betaine and that’s it.

Betaine is confirmed at the USPLabs Inner Circle page[2], we can also see the following image, touting the power of betaine anhydrous:

ModernCREATINE

This year we learned of the first study on TRAINED athletes using betaine – and it worked with flying colors. Get ready!

Update: Stack3d has confirmed that it will be a serious 2.5g of betaine anhydrous[4], which is the same dosage as the one used in the excellent study discussed below.

Update 2: USPLabs has posted a new image (shown below), which explains what this new BioCre is.

  • Betaine Research

    For a long time, betaine (also known as trimethylglycine or TMG) was believed to be a beneficial supplement for strength and power. It had good theory behind it, and it worked for elderly subjects.

    However, before this year, there was never any research where it counted: on trained athletes.

    That all changed in 2013, when Jason M Cholewa of the Exercise Science at Coastal Carolina University, published a successful study on legitimate athletes.[3]

    Betaine in Modern Creatine

    The Betaine in Modern Creatine isn’t just for power – it also helps burn fat.

    Once published, betaine was finally “proven” to provide the following benefits on healthy bodybuilders, powerlifters, and athletes:

    • Increases in muscle mass (measurements done on arm size)
    • Decreased bodyfat
    • Improved power (measurements done on bench press)

    The subjects included 23 males aged 18-35 (right in our cross-section), who were all already with “excellent experience in resistance training”. Meaning, no more “beginner gains” to worry about!

    The study was six weeks long, and was placebo-controlled. Users took 2.5g betaine per day (1.25g 2x/day). As a note, we’re not sure how much betaine is in Modern CREATINE.

    The results?

    • -3% body fat
    • +5.3lbs lean mass
    • -6.4lb fat mass

    How’s that for an amino acid?? Betaine is broscience no more!

    As a sidenote, Cholewa is a member of the AnabolicMinds forums, and is an active user in our community, so it’s great to see success come from a fellow mate.

    You can also watch him discuss the trial (before it was published) on YouTube:

  • Creatine

    The interesting thing here is that USPLabs is promoting some new BioCRE creatine, which we’re not sure what that is. Typically, the science has stuck with plain old creatine monohydrate, with some being bigger believers in creatine hydrochloride (Creatine HCl).

    We’re excited to see what USPLabs will bring, but don’t think there’s much out there that can outcompete the value and research behind standard monohydrate.

    What is BioCre?

    USP posted the image below to their Facebook feed[5]:

    BioCre Creatine by USPLabs

    It looks like BioCre is an instantized form of creatine anhydrous which provides at least 96% creatine by weight.

    Judging by the footnote at the bottom of the picture, it seems that BioCre is an instantized form of creatine anhydrous (not monohydrate), which still has a very high percentage of creatine by weight – 96% to be exact.

    This allows them to pack a bit more into less, but we’re not sure if it will have any noticeable effects (the betaine sure will, though).

    Get your creatine research on PricePlow

    If you aren’t aware of the benefits of creatine, we have tons of research on our creatine and creatine monohydrate category pages on PricePlow.

We’ll update this post when we know what BioCRE is. Until then, sign up for ModernCREATINE release notifications below:
