Carbohydrates, also known as saccharides, are organic compounds built up from aldehydes (-CHO) or ketones (RC(=O)R') and hydroxyl groups (-OH). They are the most common biomolecule of the four major classes.
Carbohydrates are mostly known for being an energy source, but they are actually more functional than that. They play numerous roles, such as the storage and transportation of energy and structural components. In simple terms, a carbohydrate is basically the energy component of one’s diet: a biological source of food and energy.
Pure Karbolyn was invented for the sole purpose of carbohydrate loading. It was designed for elite athletes looking for a fast, safe and high performance way to easily load the muscle with accessible muscle energy (glycogen). Pure Karbolyn has been instantized, so it mixes instantly!
In the late 1990’s, NIR technology provided a brand new procedure with unsurpassed accuracy to evaluate the quality of ingredients. This new, state-of-the-art technology was then used to put major brands of various creatine products to the test. In dry powder state, results varied from excellent, to below average, to atrocious when it came to actual creatine content versus label claim.
However, after activating these same products with fluid and testing them again, the results were completely different. No matter the purity, formulation and dry creatine content, most of the creatine monohydrates rapidly converted to the toxic by-product creatinine.
Increased creatinine levels can cause stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhea, indemia, dehydration, headaches, liver and kidney problems and creatinine poisoning. These side-effects are caused by our body’s self-defense mechanism, reacting to save itself from the ingested toxins by diluting it with water.
Armed with the creatine facts above, Jeff Golini and the Bioceutical Research team went to work to address the toxic conversion of creatine monohydrate. Eighteen months later, the finishing touches were made and a U.S. Patent application filed for the successful and novel method of keeping creatine monohydrate stable and completely free of toxic conversion. With this new patent process the main problem with all existing creatine supplements, the inability to deliver concentrated amounts of creatine without toxic conversion, was solved.Learn More
