If you have followed our socials, attended Kris Gethin seminars, gone through his published articles, purchased his transformation books or watched his video trainers on KagedMuscle.com or Bodybuilding.com, you will know that Kris has recommended patented Creatine HCl over other forms of creatine for several years. To us, it’s a no-brainer.
Vireo Systems originally synthesized Creatine HCl in 2003, and after years of extensive testing, it was made commercially available in 2007. The buzz around Creatine HCl quickly spread throughout the bodybuilding and athletic communities.
Fast forward to 2015 – eight years after Creatine HCl was introduced to sports nutrition. It is now the preferred creatine choice for elite athletes and bodybuilders.
As Creatine HCl quickly and rightfully gained market share, many copycat versions hit the market. Several companies started selling cheap, low-grade, generic Creatine HCl. These companies use borrowed science to support a product that is generic and not backed by studies or patents.
The top brand, the original distributor of patented Creatine HCl, was Kris’s preferred choice until recently. He noticed something was different and ultimately discovered they had switched from the patented form of Creatine HCl to a generic material. Within days the Kaged® R&D team was in contact with the patent holder for Creatine HCl. We met to discuss selling the real deal patented material with a brand built on ethics, not profits—Kaged®.
This popular and effective Creatine HCl molecule is now sold under a new name: Patented C-HCl™.
On September 5, 2015, Vireo Systems, inventor and patent holder of Creatine HCl, granted Kaged® exclusive rights to sell C-HCl™ worldwide as a single ingredient (unflavored & flavored powder or capsules).
The patented form of Creatine HCl costs three times more than the generic material, and is why all the top brands use generic versus patented to increase their profits.
Not Kaged® – we will never sell out due to profit. Quality and results are our top priorities!
If you’re obsessed with quality like we are, then there is no need to take chances when you can take Patented C-HCl™. Kaged® refuses to compromise quality for profit and won’t have anything to do with the generic Creatine HCl used by several top brands. Instead, we purchase the genuine and Patented C-HCl™.
It’s important to make sure the Creatine HCl you buy is the real deal. If you are buying Creatine HCl as a single ingredient (unflavored and flavored powder or capsules), on the label it will say Patented C-HCl™, Vireo Systems Inc. and include PATENT #8, 962, 685/#8, 354, 450/#8, 026, 385/#7, 608, 641.
Only a select few brands were granted rights to use Patented C-HCl™ in their pre- and post-workout formulas.
If Vireo Systems Inc. and the patent numbers listed above are not on your label… you have generic Creatine HCl and not the real deal!
We were able to bring the real deal back and at a better value!
They've nailed this! No breakouts like other creatine and there is a difference in the gym as well.
It definitely works like regular creatine and i tend to get some muscular water retention and even facial retention with monohydrate. I well say from a performance standpoint monohydrate is better however i do like the hcl version as its easier on my stomach. I take 1500-2000mg hcl pre and postworkout with carbs i havent felt as strong as mono but i dont get the side effects so more likely to buy.
Great product. Most creatine supplements give me stomach issues. I can happily say I been using this without any problems. I’ve had some of my best days in the gym using this product. Another home run from KAGED.
Been using for about 6 months and will be continuing to use!
