Kre-Alkalyn is a buffered compound of creatine taken as a weightlifting supplement. Creatine is taken as a nutritional supplement to produce energy and increase muscle mass. This works alongside a comprehensive weightlifting program. Kre-Alkalyn creatine supplements come in powder, liquid, or capsule form and are available at major nutritional supplement retail stores.
Boosts Energy Levels
Kre-Alkalyn works by helping the body produce adenosine triphosphate, which is essential for energy transfer among cells. This increase of ATP production within the muscles creates increased energy for the athlete, which allows for longer, harder workouts. Bodybuilding.com recommends you take creatine for a four-week cycle, both post-workout and before bed for best results.
Stimulates Muscle Growth
The energy boost provided by Kre-Alkalyn creatine allows you to work out longer and harder, so protein synthesis is increased. This causes muscle growth. Creatine also causes the muscles to become super-hydrated, so your muscle volume increases. This super-hydrated environment increases glycogen synthesis, which stimulates muscle growth.
Improves Muscle Repair
Because muscle glycogen stores are improved through use of Kre-Alkalyn, muscle repair post-workout is enhanced. Restoring the glycogen stores works with rehydration and rest to help muscles repair and grow. Furthermore, getting those glycogen stores back up to optimum levels prevents overtraining injuries during the next workout.
According to MayoClinic.com, creatine might also increase bone density, help relieve depression, improve heart strength, and improve memory function. Further testing is required to confirm these possible benefits. A 2004 study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism suggests that creatine supplementation can improve thermoregulatory response during cardio exercise.
The waste by-product of creatine is creatinine, which gets flushed by the kidneys. People with kidney damage or kidney disease should not use any creatine supplements, including Kre-Akalyn. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for use, and discontinue use if you experience any allergic symptoms.
