Kre-Alkalyn or Creatine Monohydrate.


Creatine first came into the mainstream commercial marketplace place in 1993, and has since then been the most successful supplement to be launched to this day!

It was originally discovered as a by product of meat, by a French scientist, named Chevreul back in 1832. In 1912, various researchers at Harvard University found ingesting Creatine can dramatically boost intramuscular stores of creatine, and be a major precursor to the metabolism of skeletal muscle. Creatine is naturally occurring in all vertebrates.


The main reason for taking creatine is to boost muscle mass. All athletes are looking for that X factor, an edge that will give them added performance and stamina during workouts, and playing sports. Indeed even recreational athletes want to look better in the gym, or by the pool.

Creatine has been shown to aid in increasing strength and performance in the engagement of anaerobic workouts, increasing continuous rest and stimulus performance by as much s 5%. Add intermittent cardio and that can be up to 15%. However, there is little evidence to suggest that creatine boosts single session aerobic activity, mainly as a result of modals at a sustained effort of intensity not inducing intra-exercise synthesis of supplemental creatine. It only increases aerobic capacity for short bursts, and shows no substantial benefit in longer periods of endurance cardio.


The main benefit of Kre =Alkalyn is that the manufacturing process uses are higher PH level, which reduces it’s acidity.

Kre- Alkalyn is a buffered form of creatine, which unlike regular creatine will not convert to the byproduct creatinine, helping the body to assimilate more of the creatine you take, more quickly with longer lasting effects. This means you get better results with a much lesser dosage than regular creatine, without the unwanted side effects.

It is possible to get the same effects as taking a ‘super’ dosage of regular creatine by taking (2) capsules (1500mg) pre-workout , (2) capsules (1500mg) mid-workout and (2) capsules (1500mg) post-workout.


What has put a lot of people off using creatine monohydrate, the most widely available form of creatine, is water retention experienced when taking the high doses necessary for results to be attained. This is due to an overspill from the creatine that is not absorbed by the body in the muscle cells. It is a common problem as creatine monohydrate is only beneficial at a high dosage, usually 10g/20g daily, due to poor absorption that results in the bloated ‘watery’ look experienced by most users.

The main precursor for this is that the conventional non=buffered type of creatine has a high conversion rate to creatinine, a byproduct that can lead to various side-effects such as upset stomach, general gastric discomfort, water retention, and cramping.


There is no doubt that taking buffered creatine will give you enhanced stamina and performance during your workouts. It will also result in an improved appearance due to intra-muscular water absorption giving you are fuller, harder looking body.

In addition to these benefits, you will also realize a number of non-performance related benefits such as, metal focus and alertness, increased energy levels, neuro-protective enhancement and anti-oxidative effects.
