If you’re looking for more energy, strength and focus at the gym, then the company ProMera Health would certainly like you to try their product called Beta-Cret.
ProMera Health markets Beta-Cret as a pre-workout supplement that allows you to up the intensity and frequency of your workouts as you strive to reach your fitness and performance goals.
Does Beta-Cret contain a formula that can back up its manufacturer’s assertions?
Speaking of Beta-Cret’s formula, we were impressed that this product is 100% all-natural and void of any synthetic ingredients.
As for the ingredients that it does contain, most of them are found in a proprietary blend that consists of a dosage level of 4,050 mg per serving. A few of the ingredients found in this proprietary blend include:
Taurine – This organic acid can often be found in bile and, consequently, your large intestine. Studies have shown that Taurine promotes cardiovascular, skeletal muscle and central nervous system function.
Creatine Hydrochloride (HCL) – Creatine HCL is very stable, absorbent and bio-available by nature. As such, it is not nearly as susceptible to creatinine conversion and premature breakdown as Creatine Monohydrate, making it one of the more effective and safer forms of creatine used in supplements today.
Caffeine Anhydrous – This dry- and powdered-form of caffeine is a very capable focus and energy promoter because of its ability to stimulate central nervous system function. This in fact, is why so many people take caffeinated substances to stay awake and alert in the mornings and while at work.
Beta-Alanine – This substance has the unique ability to activate enzymes in the body which stimulate muscle contractions. In turn, the more frequently muscles contract, the bigger and stronger they get with time.
All in all, there are 12 anabolic agents found in Beta-Cret, which costs $45.99 at retail price for a 36-serving tub, and $25.98 for an 8-serving tub.
Beta-Cret’s powder also comes in three different flavors including Blue Raspberry, Lemon Lime and Pineapple.
What We Like About This Product
Moving on then, you can obviously tell that there are a number of capable ingredients found in Beta-Cret, none of which is more important that Creatine HCL.
Because Creatine HCL is not susceptible to creatinine conversion or premature breakdown, its use shouldn’t lead to those common side effects that are often associated with creatine use, including bloating, cramps and nausea.
We also find Beta-Cret to be quite affordable for consumers who decide to purchase a 36-serving tub of this product. That said, avoid purchasing the 8-serving tub if you can, since you’ll be spending over $3 a serving if you do so.
What We Dislike About This Product
On the flip side, Beta-Cret’s formula is not as comprehensive as some of its competitors. Sure, it contains creatine, amino acids, vitamins and even minerals, but it seems to lack an absorption and uptake enhancer.
As such, we can’t promise that Beta-Cret will be as fast-acting and absorbent as you’d like it to be.
Also, Caffeine Anhydrous is a stimulant that may cause you problems if your body is susceptible to stimulant use. Side effects of stimulant use include restlessness, insomnia, a rapid heart beat and more.
In conclusion, while we do find Beta-Cret to be an affordable option that does contain a number of proven ingredients, it doesn’t seem to be as safe or fast-acting as some of its counterparts.
With this in mind, we wouldn’t consider this product as being more than an average option at best.
