What Is Kre-Alkalyn® & Why Do I Care If It Is In My Workout Drink?
Kre-Alkalyn® is a very special, buffered form of creatine. This means that it is processed at a higher pH level than regular creatine. The higher the pH level, the less acidic the conditions. Buffering prevents creatine from breaking down to the byproduct creatinine. Creatine converts to creatinine at a higher rate when it’s exposed to acidic conditions. This process is halted by pH level manipulation during the manufacturing process. Slowing or stopping the conversion of creatine to creatinine helps the body absorb more creatine.
When you take Kre-Alkalyn® its buffered design allows more of the creatine to be absorbed into your system and for this absorption to take place much quicker and to last longer. But before we get even more into the superiority of Kre-Alkalyn® buffered creatine over regular creatine, let’s revist what creatine is and why it is an essential part of any sports supplement stack.
Creatine — The Most Popular Sports Supplement Of All Time!
Creatine is the most popular sports nutrition supplement of all time. This title is well deserved. When creatine was first introduced in 1995, it changed the sports nutrition industry forever. For the first time bodybuilders, strength athletes and fitness-minded people had access to a nutritional supplement that produced immediate and dramatic effects.
When you take creatine monohydrate it causes your muscle cells to retain more water. It is important to note that this water retention is inner cellular. It is NOT water between the muscle and the skin, like when you are bloated. This is water retention inside the actual muscle cell, so when you take creatine it stretches out the skin and makes you appear tighter and harder – not water logged.
In addition to making you look harder and leaner, the volumized muscle cell also is stronger and creates more ATP energy. Bottom line – the volumized muscle cells, attained from taking creatine, have more strength, endurance and energy!
The results are dramatic. Most people gain 5-10 lbs of inner cellular muscle weight in the first week! Strength levels will dramatically increase as will muscle stamina and endurance when you take creatine.
The Superiority Of Kre-Alkalyn® Buffered Creatine Over Regular Creatine
One indication of the superiority of Kre-Alkalyn® Buffered Creatine over regular creatine is the reduced required dosage need. You only need to mix 1.5 grams of Kre-Alkalyn® Creatine with your workout drink, where regular creatine users need at least 5-10 grams daily. (I have taken as much as 30 grams of regular creatine daily.)
The absorption rate of Kre-Alkalyn® Creatine is so high you just don’t need to take very much to see amazing results!
Make The Switch To Kre-Alkalyn® Creatine!
Everything regular creatine is Kre-Alkalyn® Buffered Creatine is so much more! You take less and you get more results! A lot more! More strength, more muscular size, more pumps, more muscular definition, more energy, better workouts and an overall increase in athletic performance.
Most of these supplements simply used the principle that taking creatine with glucose was better than taking creatine alone. Some companies stressed things such as different dosages based on your weight, or they came up with strategies for taking the product with “loading” and “maintenance” phases.
Other “creatine delivery systems” utilized other nutrients, like the amino acid L-taurine to increase creatine uptake. I even remember one that lowered stomach acidity by including the herb ginger. (Man did that stuff taste like crap! But there is a good reason to lower acidity… more on that later in the newsletter.) Many of these supplements were and still are good products and they did help push the appeal of creatine to a more massive audience, but you could still get basically the same results with the creatine raw material and grape juice.
There was really no major advancement in creatine as a sports supplement until the last few years. Two concepts have come to the forefront – 1) ester delivery of creatine, and 2) a change in the manufacturing of creatine, which makes it less receptive to the damages of acidity. This is called buffered creatine. Both are major advancements in creatine supplementation and when you take creatine in either of these structures you will be amazed at the difference. It’s like night and day. Remember, I love creatine. I think it is a great supplement. But, it really was truly amazing the first time I switched from regular creatine to buffered creatine. I have tried both ester-creatine and buffered creatine. (Buffered creatine is registered and trademarked under the name Kre-Alkalyn®.) I liked buffered creatine better. It just seemed to work better for me, but they are both good.
The first thing that amazed my about buffered creatine was the limited dosage required to get great results. I couldn’t believe I only had to take 1.5 grams. It just didn’t seem like it would be enough. But only after a few days of gettting it into my system, I was absolutely amazed! The pumps I am getting are awesome! My strength has shot up, my muscles are fuller, easier to pump up and I just feel big and strong.
With buffered creatine you only need to take a small amount (1.5 grams per day is ideal, as opposed to the 10-20 grams per day that we used to have to take!) to see massive results. You don’t have to “load” anymore and you don’t have to take a certain amount based on your body weight because these compounds are shuttling the maximum amount of creatine that the muscle cell can possibly hold. You don’t have to do anything to buffered creatine to make it better. It is already the best it can be! You don’t even have to take it with a high glucose drink.
