Activlab Crea Shot is a pre-workout creatine complex containing as many as four forms of this compound. The supplement has been enriched with a formula stimulating nitric oxide production and accelerating the process of post-workout regeneration.
The supplement contains the following blends:
CreaShot – a source of creatine, yielding: buffered creatine monohydrate, ethyl creatine ester, creatine alpha-ketoglutarate, and creatine malate. Creatine, by providing a phosphate group used for ATP resynthesis, increases energy levels at the cellular level. Creatine supplementation increases strength, exercise and anabolic capabilities, which is why it is willingly used by both amateur and professional athletes. Enriching the product with the ingredients acting in synergy with creatine will translate into the improvement of strength results and body endurance, as well as will facilitate muscle building.
PumpShot – a mixture focused on increasing the production of nitric oxide (NO), which as a gaseous hormone affects the relaxation of blood vessel walls and the improvement of blood supply to the body. This, in turn, significantly improves the body's efficiency and reduction of fatigue during a workout, because oxygen and nutrients are more easily transported to the muscles along with the blood. Besides, the ingredients used, such as arginine alpha-ketoglutarate, L-arginine, citrulline malate, allow the achievement of a spectacular training pump. The caffeine contained in the mixture may increase blood pressure, thus facilitating to achieve the training pump fast. It also stimulates the body, increasing energy levels and reducing symptoms of fatigue.
RecoShot – a mixture supporting post-workout regeneration and protecting skeletal muscles against catabolism. L-glutamine and its improved version - N-acetyl-L-glutamine are responsible for the transport of nitrogen in the body, as well as promote muscle regeneration and anabolic processes. Taurine, on the other hand, regulates water and electrolyte balance, supports the functioning of the muscular system and optimizes insulin management, which may support muscle anabolism.
In summary, Activlab Crea Shot improves physical efficiency, endurance, muscle strength and promotes muscle anabolism.
It is recommended to use cyclically for about 10 weeks, and then take a break for another 3-4 weeks.
Due to the caffeine content, the supplement is not recommended to be consumed in the evening.

The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents energy., determining the value of metabolic energy contained in 1 g of the component. Most commonly used is the equivalent of Atwater: protein 4 kcal/g for carbohydrates 4kcal/g, and for fat 9kcal/g.
Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.
Buffered creatine monohydrate is a special formula combines creatine monohydrate with the so-called "Buffer", which is a chemical compound that allows to obtain the proper pH of the solution, the aim of its development was to eliminate the conversion of creatine to form creatinine. The formula is modelled on the patented Kre-ALKALYN formula. Buffered creatine monohydrate improves the exercise capacity (strength and endurance), accelerates the growth of lean body mass, and provides extensive wellness after exercise. It is available as both a mono-preparation supplement in a form of capsules (rarely as powder), as a basis or supplementation of creatine stacks.
Dosage: in professional sport recommended 2.5-7.5 grams per day, depending on the intensity of the workout.
Creatine ethyl ester (CEE) - Creatine with strong anabolic, catabolic and erogenic potential obtained through esterification, to obtain a higher bioavailability of creatine, and thus reducing the value of its individual doses. This results in lower weight gain than during use of special forms of creatine but better quality. Creatine ethyl ester is used in sports supplementation to obtain improvement in exercise capacity (strength and endurance) as mono-preparation supplement (in tablet form) or as a nutritional supplement (creatine stacks) and pre-workout supplements.
Alpha-ketoglutarate creatine is an intermediary product of the Krebs cycle, the salt of glutaric acid and creatine. It has a high ergogenic (glutaric acid) and anabolic (creatine) potential. Used in a combination - enhance the effect (synergism). The use of regular Creatine alpha-ketoglutarate increases remarkably exercise capacity (strength and endurance), accelerates the growth of lean body mass and enhances recovering after a hard workout. On the Polish market is available only as a component of creatine stacks.
Dosage: usually 4-8 grams per day, mainly before- and after of training.
Creatine malate (tri-creatine malate, TCM, di-creatine malate) is a combination of one molecule of creatine and three (or two) of molecules of malic acid in the ionized form (malate) in one molecule. It has better solubility in liquids of creatine monohydrate. Malate is involved in energy conversion enhancing effect of creatine in this regard. With proper use of creatine malate, there is an increase in exercise capacity of the body (strength and endurance), acceleration - although slower than provide other compounds creatine for better quality - of increase in lean body mass, provides faster and better biological regeneration after exercise. To have a fast saturation of the muscles with creatine, products containing insulin should be used (carbohydrates and proteins) or insulin-mimetic (and the substances of similar ALA, D-pinitol, taurine). Creatine malate is available in the form of powders and capsules (mono-preparation supplements and creatine stacks), for purchase at muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: Usual recommendation in sports, depends on the form of supplement, the type of exercises and weight, uses one of the following creatine dosage models:
- cyclic supplementation: 5-10g per day in 1-3 portions during the day, 2-5g per dose. Cycle length approx. 4-12 weeks
- Constant supplementation: 0,03-0,05g per kg of body weight for an extended period of time.
PumpShot includes a set of components intensifying the effect of the muscle pump, containing alpha-ketoglutarate arginine (a precursor of nitric oxide), citrulline malate and caffeine. Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) is a salt of glutaric acid and arginine. The presence of these compounds results in intensification of the operation of each of them. AAKG improves the bioavailability of the arginine, stimulates the decomposition to CO2 and H2O, which means that it becomes a precursor in the synthesis of nitric oxide. It shows anti-catabolic and enhancing anabolism properties t. Enhances the effect of the hormone insulin, insulin-mimetics (IGF-1) and growth hormone - somatotropin. AAKG is part of the pre-workout supplements (improving muscle blood flow and increasing the exercise capacity [strength and endurance]), and also improves the process of recovery after training. Most often used to improve the synthesis of nitric oxide (pre- and post-workout supplements), resulting in improved of muscle blood flow and their regeneration. Citrulline malate (citrulline malate) is formed by combining molecules of the amino acid citrulline and molecules of malic acid in one molecule, which has the chemical stability and well soluble in liquids. Ionized malic acid has the ergogenic potential, providing a complement to the potential of citrulline with new properties. It improves the exercise capacity and reduces the feeling of fatigue, and in supplementation it is beneficial at any level of training. It affects the acid-alkaline balance. It should be used by people who do sports: strength, endurance and mixed strength-endurance. To achieve the best results, indicated is a dose of Citrulline Malate 6 g / 24h. Caffeine in the body inhibits the adenosine receptors in the brain, fighting fatigue and allowing for mobilizing of action. It has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of oxygen, which increases the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and post-workout fast recovery. In the sports supplementation caffeine is used as a stimulant of nervous system. It has the thermogenic potential and in combination with other substances (e.g. polyphenols, occurring in coffee beans, cocoa beans, tea leaves and mate) can effectively participate in the reduction of body fat. PumpShot co-creates the formula
Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) is a salt glutaric acid and arginine. The presence of these compounds results in intensification of the operation of each of them. Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate improves the bioavailability by stimulating the decomposition to CO2 and H2O, which means that it becomes a precursor in the synthesis of nitric oxide. It has anti-catabolic properties enhancing anabolism. Enhances the functioning of the insulin hormone, insulin-mimetics IGF-1) and somatotropin growth hormone.
AAKG is part of the pre-workout supplements (improving muscle blood flow and increasing the exercise capacity (strength and endurance)), as well as improves the recovery process after training. Most often used to increase the synthesis of nitric oxide (supplements pre- and post-workout), increasing muscle blood flow and regeneration. Particularly valued by the representatives of power sports, power and strength sports and strength athletics. Used very often in the rehabilitation of sports injuries.
Arginine is an exogenous amino acid, it is a component of dietary proteins, not always synthesized in the human body in necessary quantity, so it is necessary to deliver it in the form of synthetics. It takes part in the biosynthesis agmatine, creatine and nitrogen oxides. The use of supplements containing arginine before workout increases the exercise capacity (strength, endurance). Used after considerable effort intensifies the transfer of energy and building compounds and intensifies the process of recovery. Used at bedtime in combination with lysine and ornithine enhances the synthesis of growth hormone. takes part in the intrasystemic synthesis of creatine. Arginine (as a precursor of ornithine) is involved in the urea cycle, increases the flow of blood in the circulatory system, increases sexual potency (in a short time after application). It affects the body's immunity preventing infections, and lowers blood pressure. In supplements – usually as alpha-ketoglutarate.
Citrulline Malate is formed by combining molecules of the citrulline amino acid and molecules of malic acid in one molecule, which has the chemical stability and is well soluble in liquids. Ionized malic acid has the ergogenic potential, providing a complementation to the citrulline potential of with new properties. It improves the exercise capacity and reduces the feeling of fatigue, and its supplementation is beneficial at any level of fitness. It affects the acid-base balance. It should be used by people who practice sports: strength, endurance and mixed strength-endurance. To achieve the best results, a dose of Citrulline Malate 6 g / 24h is recommended.
It is available as single-ingredient supplements and multi-component supplements (creatine stacks, no-boosters, amino acid supplements). It is used in the periodic, cyclic and constant supplementation.
Dosage: 3-8 g daily (in divided doses). The optimal dose to achieve beneficial results, proven experimentally, is 6 g / 24h.
Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine, 1-methylotheobromine) is a purine alkaloid occurring in the natural state in plants (Coffea arabica, Camelia sinensis, Paulinia cupana, Ilex paraguariensis), which acts as a natural pesticide, acting toxic to insects. Peculiar smell and taste also deters herbivores. Caffeine in the body inhibits the adenosine receptors in the brain, fighting fatigue and allowing for action activation. It has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of oxygen, which increases the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and rapid post-workout recovery. In the sports supplementation, caffeine is used as a stimulant nervous system. It has the thermogenic potential and in combination with other substances (e.g. Polyphenols, both occurring in coffee beans, such as cocoa beans, tea leaves and mate) can effectively participate in the reduction of body fat. It is included in many dietary stimulants (creatine stacks, no-boosters, beverages). It is a component of fat burners. It is also in the form of mono-preparation supplements.
Dosage: 100-600 mg per day. Due to the long release of activity should not be used in the evening, before sleep.
RecoShot is a complex of active ingredients of anti-catabolic potential, support renewal of muscle tissue after exercise, including: glutamine, acetylated glutamine and taurine. Glutamine (L-glutamine) amide glutamic acid, responsible for the synthesis of proteins, the acid-base balance and removal of ammonia, the anti-catabolic potential and participates in glutathione synthesis. Improves biological renewal. Taurine (an amino acid not building proteins), affects the normal digestive processes and the level of neurotransmitters. Some sources note its impact on the insulin metabolism. RecoShot is a component CreaShot preparation of ActivLab, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Taurine – non-protein amino acid containing sulphur, which is synthesized in the body from methionine and cysteine, present in sufficient amount in human or animal body (in the brain, heart and skeletal), although in some cases must be supplemented. Significantly affects the calcium content in the cells and stabilizes the water and electrolyte balance and maintains acid-base balance. Takes part in the synthesis of bile acids. In the body acts as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. It is an insulin-mimetic improving insulin metabolism, responsible for transport of nutrients (such as amino acids, glucose, creatine) to the cells and muscle tissue. These properties determine that it is a valued mono-preparation supplement and valuable addition to creatine and amino acid supplements, recommended for psycho-pchysically active people and athletes and other competitive sportsmen in pre- and post-workout periods.
Dosage: 3 grams per day.
L-glutamine - amino acid building endogenous proteins, glutamic acid amide. In the human body it is responsible for the synthesis of proteins, acid-base balance and removing ammonia outside of the organism. With the shortage of energy taken from the muscle tissue, glutamine with alanine participate in the process of gluconeogenesis, and participate in the production of glucose substrate. L-glutamine has a direct impact on the proper functioning of the digestive system and immunity of the organism. Participates in the synthesis of one of the most powerful antioxidant - glutathione. It has anti-catabolic potential. It is found naturally in foods of animal and vegetable origin and high protein supplements. Used as mono-preparation or multi-component amino-acid supplements and supplements enhancing biological recovery after exercises, often in combination with BCAA.
Dosage: 5-20 g per day (portioned during the day, and after training and waking up). The minimum dose used in supplementation is 2-15g per 1 serving.
N-acetyl-L-glutamine, modern acetylated form of the amino acid glutamine combined with acetic acid, allowing for higher bioavailability of the compound characterized by the ability to use lower doses than those used for the free form of glutamine. Acetylated form of glutamine (NAG) is taken up by muscle cells. It has anti-catabolic potential, supporting biological renewal of the organism. It is often combined with other forms of glutamine increasing capacities in the different parts of the amino acid. NAG has also anti-catabolic potential as mono-preparation supplement. In the sports supplementation it is a component of pre- and post-workout supplements, supporting the bioavailability of the muscle tissue. NAG and other preparations containing glutamine are available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Dosage: the divided portions 2 - 5g to 4 times a day (pre- and post-workout, after waking up and at bedtime).
