Create has become the staple sport supplement for any athlete or person who wants to maximize their strength for workouts or performance. With increase in creatine demand come lots of products. So what is the best creatine product? The best creatine product may have just hit the market with Cold Fusion EX (Explosion). Cold Fusion EX by LG Sciences has been demonstrated to be 6x times better in strength and performance gains. For the review on this product I want to talk about the science of Cold Fusion Explosion so you understand for yourself why it is the best creatine product.
Cold Fusion EX uses the new form of creatine called creatine ethyl ester. Creatine ethyl ester allows for better absorption as it doesn’t get broken down in the stomach and lasts longer in the blood stream to be absorbed by your muscle cells. Cold Fusion EX works fast so you will be ready for your next workout.
Cold Fusion EX uses a proprietary blend of creatine ethyl ester with creatine monohydrate. There is lots of research on the amazing benefits for increases in strength, stamina, and muscle growth with creatine monohydrate. With both forms of creatine, Cold Fusion creates a one two punch for your muscle cells. LG Sciences uses 200 mesh pharmaceutical grade creatine monohydrate in every tub of Cold Fusion EX.
A key ingredient added to Cold Fusion is creatine malate. Creatine malate or l-malate transport NADH into your mitochondria which are the powerhouse of your cells. Creatine malate supports greater stamina with less muscle damage after exercise.
Taurine: Taurine is part of the native defense mechanism against oxidative damage in skeletal muscle (2). Taurine is also a modulator of contractile function in mammalian skeletal muscle and increases the force responses by augmenting calcium accumulation and release (3). – Taurine gives you extra strength to squeeze the muscle increasing the intensity of each lift along with increased energy and stamina.
L-Leucine: Leucine has been shown to not only reduce the rate of protein degradation in skeletal muscle as a result of resistance training but to also increase protein accumulation and strength (4). – Leucine is the first amino acid used up when you work out. It is proven to be anabolic also in muscle tissue, which makes it a great addition!
Beta Alanine: Beta Alanine is an amino acid that is a component of carnosine. Stuides have shown that beta alanine supercharges the effects of creatine, resulting in greater lean mass gains and strength increases (5). – Beta Alanine buffers lactic acid and gives you longer workout times and reduces failure by buffering lactic acid. Genetic lactic acid reduction is what is speculated to give Lance Armstrong such incredible stamina and power. Beta Alanine causes a slight tingle but it is very potent at increasing strength and muscle density.
Aspartic Acid: Aspartic acid plays a major role in the malate-aspartate shuttle and acts to recharge L-Malate. Supplementation with aspartic acid has resulted in increased endurance and decreased lactic acid buildup. Furthermore, studies show decreased rate of glycogen depletion during exercise due to increased utilization of free fatty acids over glycogen (6,7) – Aspartic Acid increases endurance and performance by providing more energy to the cells and increasing endurance as shown in studies.
Yohimbine: Yohimbine is an alpha-adrenergic antagonist. Supplementation with yohimbine results in augmentation of nitric oxide synthesis and increased vasodilation – which means more blood, water and nutrients delivered to your muscles. – Yohimbine gives you the mental lift in the gym, without the crash of caffeine. It also increases blood flow, making NO work better. Unlike caffeine, Yohimbine doesn’t constrict blood flow.
L-Arginine: L-Arginine is the precursor to nitric oxide (NO) production. Nitric oxide is the major vasodilator in blood vessels. Vasodilation causes blood vessels to open up, allowing more blood to flow. This gives you the massive pumps that you experience when supplementing with arginine. This pump not only looks great but it also helps to build muscle by delivering more nutrients where you need it most. – Arginine is the base for a good NO pump, we prefer a mix of many types to get the maximum benefit and straight Arginine has a faster acting effect.
Arginine AKG: Arginine bound to the tricarboxylic acid intermediate, alpha-ketoglutate. Alpha-ketoglutarate is important for driving the malate-aspartate shuttle and is one of the most important nitrogen transporters. In addition, alpha-ketoglutarate is a precursor to the neurotransmitters glutamate and GABA. – Arginine AKG is a good form of Arginine proven to help build strength and give pumps. It is bound to glutamine and gives a medium release time.
Arginine Orotate: Arginine bound to orotic acid results in a longer duration of action and improved absorption of arginine. – We cover all the bases, so this is another form of Arginine that lasts longer in the body so you get a three phased NO release.
Mormordica: Momordica is an herbal ingredient that has been used in China for over a thousand years. Momordica upregulates the expression of GLUT-4, the primary glucose transporter in skeletal muscle. This results in increased glucose and protein transport into muscle. This increased flow of nutrients also loads creatine and water into the muscle (8,9). – This stuff is really cool, it shuttles all the other stuff into the muscle cell. Unlike inferior products (like ALA) that push only sugar into the muscle. mormordica pushes both amino acids and sugar into the muscle (all the above ingredients are amino acids, even creatine, which is why Cold Fusion works better than anything else).
Pomegranate Powder: Pomegranate juice contains potent antioxidants that protect nitric oxide (NO) from oxidative destruction. This results in an increase in the activity of NO as well as the duration of action (10). – Pomegranate is good for you in many ways, but it is shown to increase your pumps by extending the life of NO in the blood.
Spirulina: Spirulina has been shown to decrease oxidative damage in skeletal muscle but it also has another interesting effect. Spirulina augments the vasodilating effect of nitric oxide while at the same time, decreasing vasoconstriction by reducing the synthesis and release of vasoconstricting eicosanoids (11). – Spirulina is known as an energy food that increases pumps and reduces muscular fatigue. It increases stamina and reduces fatigue.
This unique combination of ingredients will give you the biggest pumps during your workouts while at the same time producing the optimal anabolic state. Hopefully, our dual explanations give you science guys and normal people a chance to see why Cold Fusion EX is so great. You have to taste it! It is amazing!
