Kre Alkalyn vs Creatine

Creatine is one of the most popular, widely-used bodybuilding supplements around.  It was first identified in back in 1832 when a French scientist (Michele Eugène Chevreul) discovered it as a component of skeletal muscle. Looking at its chemical make-up we see that creatine is a naturally-occurring a nitrogenous organic acid. It occurs naturally in vertebrates and helps to supply energy to the body’s cells—primarily muscle cells. It impacts muscle cells by increasing the formation of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

Bodybuilders love it because it increases the amount of energy that is delivered to muscle fibers, helping make them bigger and stronger. Creatine is derived from three non-essential amino acids: arginine, glycine, and methionine. It is manufactured in the liver and kidneys—at a rate of about two grams a day. Because it can be stored for use later on, consuming extra amounts of creatine in the form of supplements may create a deeper energy reserve for muscles and other tissues.

Although creatine is available in a number of forms, creatine monohydrate is the most popular and the form most frequently taken as a supplement. It is generally sold as a powder or capsule. Creatine monohydrate is about 88% creatine. Other forms only contain as little as 40% actual creatine so it’s clear why creatine monohydrate is the most popular form. Because it’s just not feasible to commercially obtain ‘naturally-produced’ creatine, virtually 100% of the creatine monohydrate sold today is synthetic—but that’s not a drawback so there’s no need to be concerned.

Unlike most of the supplements being promoted by the fitness industry today, there are actual scientific studies backing up claims that creatine monohydrate helps build lean muscle mass. However, before running out and buying the most expensive bottle of creatine you can find, there are a few things you should know. First, not all creatine is created equal.  There are four things you should look for in creatine products:

1) It should be made from pure creatine monohydrate.

2)  It should be completely stable in liquids—you don’t want it breaking down and losing its potency before it even gets to your muscles;.

3) It should avoid reactive problems inherent to re-synthesized “finished” creatine monohydrate that result in its conversion to mostly useless by-product.

4) It should be able to withstand comprehensive peer-reviewed scientific study.

Okay, so you’re looking at that and thinking, “What the hell? How am I supposed to know this?” That’s where I’m going to help you. The biggest problem with ordinary creatine monohydrate is that it’s highly unstable. The moment it gets into your body it starts to break down with most of it being flushed through your system without ever getting close to a single muscle fiber. That literally means that most of your investment is being pissed away without helping you get the least bit bigger or stronger.

Fortunately, science has an answer in Kre-Alkalyn creatine monohydrate, which is manufactured using a patented process.  When you invest in Kre-Alkalyn creatine you don’t have to be concerned with the four points mentioned earlier because it passes each of these with flying colors. The most important advantage it has over ordinary creatine monohydrate is its stability—most of what you consume makes its way into your muscle fibers, helping them to get bigger and stronger.  Therefore, you’re able to actually consume less while achieving more.

This has the distinct advantage of avoiding the side effects that can arise from consuming too much creatine monohydrate, including bloating, gas, water retention and even diarrhea. The side effects are largely caused when creatine monohydrate is broken down. During this process, much of it is converted to creatinine, which is actually a toxic substance and the one that causes the nasty side effects. Through the patented manufacturing process, Kre-Alkalyn creatine is PH-balanced, meaning that it isn’t susceptible to the PH in your stomach—meaning better delivery to the muscles without the side effects.

And because the majority of what you consume is actually transported to the muscle cells, rather than being flushed out of your system, you don’t need to consume as much as you would with ordinary creatine monohydrate.

Overall, Kre-Alkalyn delivers the results you want—pure creatine monohydrate transported to the muscle cells—without any of the unwanted side effects. And because the nutrient-rich creatine monohydrate reaches the muscles intact, there’s no loading phase required and even better, you’ll be able realize those much-wanted gains a lot faster. There are number of brand names available so you can choose whichever one you want.
