Pro GF Review
In order to train at an intense and high level, your muscle cells are going to need enough energy and fuel to sustain themselves between sets and the duration of a workout without getting burnt out.
To this effect, its important that your body has high amounts of ATP in store via the consistent process of ATP re-synthesis.
Further, the best way to enhance your body’s rate of ATP re-synthesis is through the use of creatine.
That said, there are plenty of different creatine-based products to consider. One in particular, called Pro GF, will be the focus of this review as we determine the good and bad associated with this product made by CNP Professional.
For the most part, a consumer should always highly consider supplements which contain well-rounded and thorough blends.
Such is the case with Pro GF. Not only does it contain 3 grams of creatine ethyl ester (CEE) in each serving, but it also boasts of a strong amino acid profile and enlists the help of protein and carbs. In addition, this product contains no trans fats or cholesterol and is stimulant-free
Now then, you may be wondering what in the world CEE is. To make things simple, CEE is a more “advanced” form of creatine that differs from regular creatine on several accounts – including its lipophilic nature.
That said, lipophilic is just a fancy way of saying that a substance is fat penetrable. Speaking of fat, every substance that a body digests must first pass through a layer of fatty membrane before reaching the blood stream. And putting it plainly, some substances travel through this fatty membrane at a faster rate than others.
As for CEE, because its lipophilic, it travels much faster through this layer of fatty membrane in comparison to regular creatine. Thus, CEE is faster-acting and more effective as well.
And what about the type of amino acids found in Pro GF? While it contains several, the two that stood out most to us include L-Arginine and L-Leucine.
While Leucine is perhaps the most capable of its class when it comes to muscle protein synthesis, Arginine is just as unique in terms of its abilities as a Nitric Oxide (NO) precursor.
Okay, so we’ve already made Pro GF sound like a must-have product. But we should note that in an effort to enhance its powder-form taste, CNP Professional has decided to include 19 grams of sugar in each serving of this supplement.
We bring this up because a high sugar content is never optimal for one’s health. Still, unless you’re diabetic, downing a glass of Pro GF is not going to kill you.
Also, if you find yourself working with a tight budget, you may want to save a little room for this product because it costs about $50 at retail price for one, 30-serving bottle.
While we’ve definitely reviewed more expensive products, we can see how Pro GF’s price tag may be a little hefty for some individuals.
In closing, as long as Pro GF’s sugar count and price don’t turn you off, you have every reason to try this effective, stimulant-free and tasty product.
