List of Ingredients
Kre-Alkalyn (1,500 mg of buffered creatine monohydrate).
Jeff Golini is the creator of Kre-Alkalyn. All American EFX is not the only supplement company that carries this type of creatine. What makes Kre-Alkalyn EFX 160 unique is the delivery system. Unlike many other bodybuilding creatine supplements in powder form, All American EFX offers a pill form.
Kre-Alkalyn EFX 160 is buffered to a pH level between 12 and 14. According to the product description, creatine starts to degrade in the body at a pH of 6.9. The higher pH allows the creatine level to stay elevated in the blood until it reaches muscles where it kicks in and gives the bodybuilder the creatine effect they are looking for.
There are a lot of chemical reactions and complicated processes described on the All American EFX website, but the point is this; creatine breaks down to creatinine in liquids. This process happens very fast. Once broken down, fewer creatine molecules reach muscle fibers and more side effects are reported. Common side effects of taking creatine include bloating and cramping. With Kre-Alkalyn EFX 160, the creatine does not break down as fast so more creatine makes it to the muscles and fewer side effects are felt because the buffered creatine does not break down in the stomach.
For the dieter, none of this matters much, but for the bodybuilder, creatine is an important part of building muscle mass. Creatine brings energy to muscles cells and more energy means more power, more repetitions and more muscle gain.
It is important to remember to suspend your current creatine shake usage if trying Kre-Alkalyn EFX 160. Doubling up on creatine or continuing to use powdered creatine in conjunction with this supplement will not improve bodybuilding results and could lead to additional side effects.
The price of Kre-Alkalyn EFX 160 is $32.99 per bottle. This may be more than some creatine shakes, but it is cheap enough for most bodybuilders to give it a shot especially if they are having side effects of powdered, unbuffered creatine.
- May prevent bloating.
- Buffering may increase the bioavailability of the creatine.
- Not too expensive.
- Not for the dieter trying to lose weight.
The information we found on Kre-Alkalyn EFX 160 is pretty convincing. Creatine is a crucial for the bodybuilder to supply energy to muscle cells. If powders are causing side effects like bloating and cramping, the Kre-Alkalyn EFX 160 may be a creatine supplement on the “must try” list.
