Creatine monohydrate has been proven to enhance strength, endurance, and athletic performance. Some athletes, however, have noted side effects including nausea, stomach cramps, bloating, and a host of other unwanted reactions. What wasn't realized until recently is that these side effects are actually caused by creatinine and not creatine.
Kre-Alkalyn® is creatine which is 100% stable and will not break down into creatinine. This stability allows the creatine to be absorbed more efficiently into the bloodstream. Kre-Alkalyn® allows athletes to use smaller serving sizes while experiencing even more explosive results.
Kre-Alkalyn® has been referred to as a new form of creatine; however, it is actually the best form of creatine (creatine monohydrate) that has been fully stabilized. It is a new technology altogether: 100% stable creatine. Kre-Alkalyn® is processed at a higher pH level than regular creatine monohydrate.
On June 4, 2002, Kre-Alkalyn® was awarded official U.S. Patent #6,399,661. The patent discusses an oral creatine supplement and the method of manufacturing this supplement, which includes mixing an alkaline powder with a powdered creatine until the pH of the mixture is in the range between 7-14. The research behind Kre-Alkalyn®'s patent shows that creatine's speed of conversion to creatinine is directly related to the pH of the liquid used for mixing. The lower the pH, the faster it converts. Conversion of ceatine into the waste product creatinine can be halted by pH level alteration during the manufacturing process.
Preliminary feedback for Kre-Alkalyn® has been positive. Many athletes report a decrease in water retention and the elimination of bloating. Many athletes also report immediate results even with the elimination of the ''loading'' phase normally occurring with regular creatine monohydrate.
What will pH-correct creatine actually mean to you? No more nasty side effects. No more loading. No more cycling. No more sugar or dextrose transport systems. Best of all, a small serving is all that's needed to reach your muscle cells intact with full impact and no bloating.
