Kre–Alkalyn is a form of creatine that is PH-corrected and therefore does not break down into creatinine on digestion.
Creatinine is a toxic by product of digesting other forms of Creatine. Kre-Alkalyn is digested as the pure form of creatine without the creatinine.
Due to the pure digestion of Kre-Alkalyn meaning 1.5g of Kre-Alkalyn contributes the same amount of creatine as 10-15g of creatine monohydrate.
Kre-Alkalyn Creatine – The king of creatines?
In our opinion here if you can stomach creatine monohydrate then stick to it but we are not scientists and also a few members of the team cannot stomach mono. Mono can really sit on the stomach and cause all sorts of issues, I have had this with Mono and never ever had an issue with Kre-Alkalyn Creatine. If you can afford it I would always take Kre-Alkalyn its purer and digests the easiest I have ever had of all the creatines on the market.
Kre-Alkalyn Side Effects
Up to 10g of Kre-Alkalyn there seems to be no side effects of taking Kre-Alkalyn.
Standard creatine monohydrate can cause , and muscle cramping, stomach pain, nausea, and diarrhea. but Kre-Alkalyn does not have any of these types of side effects.
You can search through the reviews for Kre-Alkalyn and you will find all sorts of reviews that talk about the taste, the effect but non say that Kre-Alkalyn had any nasty side effects.
We have used Kre-Alkalyn for a number of years and take it to pretty high doses, even up to 10g a day when really pushing it and we have never had a bad stomach or any side effects.
Kre-Alkalyn Creatine Benefits:
Not only do you need to take less Kre-Alkalyn per day to get and effective dose, easier to stomach with little to no side effects but the lack of the need to pre-load Kre-Alkalyn compare to other forms of Creatine. Kre-Alkalyn needs no loading phase and works within a few days of starting. So like other forms of Creatine Kre-Alkalyn helps increase the ATP levels in the muscles and brain improving strength and concentration; ideal for anyone looking to spend time in the gym.
The pump you get from Kre-Alkalyn creatine if unreal its like someone has pumped pure NO2 into our veigns and we love the mental clarity you get from all creatine supplements but non more so than with Kre-Alkalyn. For us Kre-Alkalyn Creatine is one of the finese creatine supplements we have ever had.
Creatine – Kre-Alkalyn
A little history
In the late 1990’s, a ground breaking development in the dietary and sports supplements industry became available to premium formulators. The use of NIR technology for purity, potency and stability testing provides a state-of-the-art procedure with unsurpassed accuracy in the evaluation of ingredient quality.
NIR technology and creatine supplements testing
With this new technology in hand, major brands of various creatine supplements were put to the test. As might be expected, in a dry powder state the product assays ranged from excellent, to average, to atrocious when viewing actual creatine content verses label claim.
However, when these same creatine supplements were then tested after activation with fluid, a disturbing discovery was made. It was found that almost immediately after adding water to creatine monohydrate that the majority of it rapidly converted to the toxic by-product creatinine. This held true no matter how “unique” the formulation was claimed to be, or the purity of the assayed dry creatine content.
Conventional creatine side-effects vs. Patented Kre-Alkalyn
Note: In the past, some companies pointed to the virtual lack of creatinine in their powders, calling them “creatinine free”. What was not considered is that the tests were conducted with dry creatine monohydrate. Once fluid is introduced, creatinine conversion occurs.
A number of negative side-effects can arise from increased creatinine levels, among them; stomach cramps and bloating, diarrhea, indemia, water retention, dehydration, headaches, liver and kidney problems and creatinine poisoning. These side-effects are caused by the body’s internal self-defense mechanism reacting to save itself from the ingested toxins by diluting it with water.
Kre-Alkalyn® Creatine – Awarded U.S. Patent #6,399,661
Armed with the creatine facts above, Bioceutical Research went to work to address the toxic conversion of creatine monohydrate. Eighteen months later, the finishing touches were made and a U.S. Patent application filed for the successful and novel method of keeping creatine monohydrate stable and completely free of toxic conversion.
With this new patent process the main problem with all existing creatine supplements, the inability to deliver concentrated amounts of creatine without toxic conversion, was solved.
Why buffered is better, in more ways than one
Since Kre-Alkalyn Buffered Creatine is free of unwanted creatinine conversion following liquid activation, it puts an end to the days of having to saturate your body with huge ten to twenty gram amounts of creatine monohydrate to get the desired strength, endurance and muscle building effects. More concisely, Kre-Alkalyn allows you to safely consume creatine, to full and most potent effect, with only a fraction of previous dosages.
Kre-Alkalyn creatine facts – Q&A transcript
“If I understand this correctly, the new data says that most of the creatine monohydrate I
have been taking converts to the toxin creatinine within minutes when added to any liquid, be it juice or water, etc. So I am in effect taking a lot of creatinine (a toxin) and very
little actual creatine monohydrate. How is this so? I have been using creatine for years and got a good effect from it. Please explain.”
The best way to explain it is, when you supplement with 5 grams of ordinary creatine monohydrate you probably get the benefit of 2-400mg of actual creatine.
Typically, the human body itself will produce around 2 grams of creatine daily. So, the additional 2-400 mgs on top of what your body naturally produces gives you a 10-20% increase in the pool of available creatine. The problem is with the 4.6 grams of toxic creatinine you’d also be ingesting. You just have to start looking at it differently. Most of the creatine is lost when added to liquid, and even more is converted to creatinine when passing through the acidic stomach. In contrast, Kre-Alkalyn gives you a full, stable uptake of pure creatine with zero toxic conversion. All the good, none of the bad.
“How does this new form of creatine, Kre-Alkalyn, never convert to creatinine?”
Through extensive trials, the research team found that the speed of the toxic conversion was directly proportional to the pH of the liquid it was mixed with. However, merely adding creatine monohydrate to a strong alkaline drink did not solve the problem because of the highly acidic stomach environment following ingestion.
The breakthrough came when they discovered that if the creatine could somehow be buffered during the manufacturing process to pH12 or greater then it would remain completely stable when mixed with water and in the stomach following ingestion. The patent process that results in Kre-Alkalyn gives you the only form of creatine that passes intact and at full dosage levels into the blood stream.
“What is the creatine buffered with?”
The buffering takes place in the synthesis process of Kre-Alkalyn creatine itself, allowing retention of a safe, high pH within the structure of the actual compound.
“Won’t a strong alkaline substance burn human tissue in the same way as a strong acid?”
Kre-Alkalyn is food grade technology. A good analogy is how a 3.0 pH acid will burn the skin, yet you can drink all the orange soda (also pH3) you want because it is citric acid.
“Once it hits the stomach will it no longer be stable because of the strong acids present?”
Kre-Alkalyn creatine remains 100% stable and exhibits complete uptake because the patented buffering action is specifically designed to work within the stomach, raising pH long enough for full absorption.
“So, what does this all mean?”
Simply a more effective, safer and better value form of creatine. You will only need to use a fraction of what was previously needed. You’ll get better results with none of the negative side effects or toxic conversion seen with conventional creatine monohydrate.
“How is your Kre-Alkalyn a better value than plain creatine monohydrate powder?”
The advantages obviously go beyond just price. Plus, Kre-Alkalyn comes in easy-to-use capsules. But, to illustrate the value, consider that if you were previously using 15 grams a day of creatine monohydrate that you’ll only need a mere 2 capsules daily of patented Kre-Alkalyn. Yes, you did read correctly, 2 capsules TOTAL per day. Even for the most heavily muscled athletes, a 100 count bottle of Kre-Alkalyn caps lasts a minimum of 4 weeks, and for the vast majority of users a full 7 weeks or more.
