Kre Alkalyn is the new trend in nutritional supplement for gym goers to get energy and increase muscle mass. It is a developed form of creatine and popular as buffered creatine. This weightlifting supplement is found to be more productive and effective as compared to Creatine Monohydrate. It is a patented form of creatine with no load and no cycle.
How it is better than Creatine Monohydrate?
- Creatine Monohydrate was found to be the cause of stomach cramps in case of some users as it lowers the pH on consumption while Kre Alkalyn is develop to assure that it doesn’t affect the pH balance of the body to avoid any stomach issues.

Benefits of Kre Alkalyn
This supplement works best with a comprehensive weightlifting program. You can take it in form of powder, liquid, capsule or caplet and it is easily available on retail stores. It has many advantages over its counterparts which are:
It helps the body in the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), the main source of energy in the body. The enhanced ATP production within the muscles elevates the energy level and results into better performance. One can be able to do harder energy intensive workouts for longer duration. For best results, it is recommended to take this for a four week cycle post workout and before retiring for the bed.
When the user will do hard workouts for longer duration then the protein production will also increase to repair the wear and tears of the body means muscle repairing process will be enhanced after workout. The effects of Kre Alkalyn improve the glycogen storage by the muscles. This stored glycogen works along with rehydration and resting phase to help the muscles repair and grow. Enough glycogen storage also helps in preventing the overtraining injuries during the next workout session.
It is found that this buffered creatine can also help in increasing bone density, relieving depression, improving heart strength and memory function. According to a research paper published in International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism, creatine supplementation can improve thermoregulatory response during cardio exercise but further testing is still required to confirm all these possible benefits.
Side effects of Kre Alkalyn
Although, this product is considered to be well tolerated and safe alternative over the other performance enhancing drugs but some users have experienced some side effects which are:
This is the most common side effect of creatine as this molecule reduces the retention of water in the body by making your muscles draw water from other areas of the body. To avoid such situation, you have to drink plenty of water if you are using this product. Our body can handle 60 cups of water a day efficiently so drinking too much water is not a problem.
If you are taking other supplements as well then Kre Alkalyn can interact with the other chemicals and produce negative effects. According to University of Maryland Medical Center, you should avoid high dosage of caffeine while using this buffered creatine. They also suggested that you should avoid NSAID pain killers like Advil, Motrin, Aleve and Tylenol while using creatine. Interaction of NSAID pain relievers and creatine may increase kidney stress.
Acute kidney failure
Although, it is a rare side effect but if you have a history of kidney dysfunction, liver dysfunction and high blood pressure then consumption of high dosage of creatine for longer period can result into kidney problems.
So if you are using this supplement then you should follow the manufactureres recommendations for use and discontinue its consumption if you experience any discomfort or allergic reaction.
