Swole® KREATE™: The key to this hardgainer stack. Throw in Optimum Nutrition HMB and Six Star Creatine X3

Why is Swole Kreate key? Because it combines the best muscle builder creatine with a testosterone booster (d-aspartic acid) and two protein synthesis powerhouses (ecdysterone and methoxyisoflavone).

Add a HMB to tap the mTor pathway to even greater protein synthesis and a post-workout creatine spike from Six Star and you will be saying, "mo gains, mo gains, mo gains!"

Here it is. Take each as directed.

Kre-Alkalyn - a "buffered creatine" manufactured by All American Pharmaceutical Corp. that doesn't convert into creatinine (the byproduct of creatine) before reaching muscle cells. "Buffered" means it's processed at a higher pH level than regular creatine, which prevents its conversion to creatinine and enhances its uptake.

D-Aspartic Acid - This amino acid is produced in the pituitary gland, where it stimulates the release of LH. Then, LH travels via the bloodstream to the testicles where it causes a boost in testosterone production. D-aspartate is also produced inside the testicles and acts on Leydig cells (special cells in the testicles that produce testosterone) to increase T production as well as the production of sperm. One study reported that men taking D-aspartate for just 12 days increased their testosterone levels by more than 40%.

Ecdysterone - This phytochemical, found in plants such as spinach, stimulates protein synthesis and drives muscle growth with no impact on hormone levels.

Methoxyisoflavone - is an anti-estrogen supplement. By lowering estrogen it promotes higher testosterone levels. It also has been found to enhance protein synthesis and lower Cortisol levels
