Betancourt Nutrition Creatine Chewies Review By Matt Canning
Creatine Chewies by Betancourt Nutrition claims to offer creatine with a faster delivery system increasing its overall effectiveness. The creatine is "creatine malate" which is creatine that is bioactively bound to malic acid which enhances absorption and utilization in the body. Seems complicated enough, but basically my understanding is that this is a faster acting creatine and best of all, available in a convenient chewable pill format.
I have a lot of good things to say about Jorge Betancourt's company - I like that he puts a lot of time and effort into the entire operation and his stylish advertising campaigns leads me to believe that he is meticulous in the design of his products. While they say not to judge a book by its cover, I think a nice cover says a lot about a product most of the time, and the opposite is true too at times - not always, but I think that judging a book by its cover when it comes to supplements is a good guide.
Jorge had previously given me a free sample of his "Glutamine High C" powder for review. To read the full review, click on the URL below:
I was eager to help promote Jorge's newly founded company because I felt that his product line had a lot of potential. A lot of products on the market today offer similar quality but one thing is for certain - the flavours which Betancourt Nutrition offered were the best in the biz! I honestly think that there is no company out there which has better flavours than Betancourt Nutrition - perhaps equally good flavorus, but not better. With that, I was happy to obtain samples of Jorge's new products, his creatine and glutamine chewies, and I personally used his creatine chewies first and will later try his glutamine chewies.
Jorge gave me the samples at the 2007 Mr. Olympia personally and we talked a little about the online promotion of his company through BodybuildingPro.com - look forward to an interview of Jorge in the time to come. The chewable pills tasted great and as Jorge said, they would make an excellent supplement for bodybuilders on a diet in that they are sugar and calorie free. I am not sure how the use of creatine would effect water retention in dieting bodybuilders and that may open up a whole other Pandora's box of questions, but the calorie free aspect is something to think about, as Jorge had pointed out when talking about his new product.
As far as effectiveness is concerned, I can say that my diet has been horrid over the past month. While I have been eating the correct types of foods, I have not been eating ENOUGH foods and that has been a problem. However, I have maintained by body weight and overall muscularity while using the chewable pills and I think they can be attributed directly to this. Under any other circumstance I would lose weight and the fact that I have not done so yet leads me to believe that the creatine pills are working and would work even better if my diet was on point! I still have about a week's supply left so I plan to get my diet on track and see what the result will be. I think that I can progress fairly well if I do everything right.
Taking into consideration all variables (diet, other supplements, rest, and so on) I can tell you that I feel that the creatine chewies are an effective supplement. I only wish that I was using the supplement under a different circumstance, say with a better diet for example. As I said, I still have about a week's worth of the supplement left and I will give my final analysis of the supplement in the forum link provided below in this article. I think that the creatine chewies taste great and are a great treat for bodybuilders on strict diets. In my opinion, creatine is creatine, and despite all these new scientific claims stating greater absorption, the basics are the basics, and it comes down to flavour and taste in my opinion. Creatine Chewies by Betancourt Nutrition pass the test in both of these areas and I recommend them. I would also like to give my personal thanks to Jorge Betancourt for giving me the supplement free of charge at the 2007 Mr. Olympia expo!
