What You Should Know
CarnoCre is a combination creatine / beta alanine supplement. Beta alanine is effective in reducing lactic acid build-up so muscles are less sore after a workout. Creatine is the mother of all bodybuilding supplements. It hydrates the muscle and helps the bodybuilder achieve increased muscle mass and decreased recovery time. We love the fact that multiple forms of creatine are used in this supplement, but there is one word missing from the ingredient list – micronized. If creatine is not micronized, it will not mix well in liquids, making it hard to take. Bodybuilders have many options for creatine shakes. It they are searching for the best tasting, best mixing formula, CarnoCre will not make the final cut.
Creatine causes water retention and weight gain. The dieter does not need to take creatine to lose weight. Even if this product contained all the proven ingredients for weight loss available today, we would still suggest dieters stay away from the product. Creatine causes some nasty side effects and it does not support a healthy metabolism.

Creatine is the heart of most bulking workouts. It forces water into the muscle for hyper-hydration. This is excellent for muscle growth and recovery, but the benefit of creatine does come with a side effect. More water in the muscle leads to cramping and that cramping can be quite painful. Add creatine cramping to lactic acid burn and the bodybuilder may be out of commission longer than necessary between workouts – insert beta alanine.
Beta alanine supports carnosine storage. Carnosine reduces the effect of lactic acid on muscles. Lactic acid rushes to the muscle to start recovery during weight training workouts. It it is allowed to stay in the muscle, it causes pain and burning. The bodybuilder does not need to be laid up with sore muscles for multiple days between workouts.

CarnoCre contains two of the more important ingredients for bodybuilders, but it does not offer any support for dieters. The creatine really needs to be micronized so it mixes well in juice, milk or water. There are other companies offering the same ingredients in micronized form and those are the supplement most bodybuilders will choose because they simply don’t want to drink a clumpy shake.
