Shows it is a waste. According to this study creatine monohydrate is statistically over 900% more efficient than creatine-ethyl-ester. 900%! Theoretically you would have to consume 9 times as much creatine-ethyl-ester to get the same amount of creatine delivered to your muscles as you get with creatine monohydrate.

These two studies co-authored by Dr Mark J. Tallon and Dr Robert Child and presented at the 4th International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) annual meeting in Las Vegas revealed the ugly truth about these two creatine supplements.
Kre-Alkalyn, marketed by All American Pharmaceutical and Natural Foods Corp. and sold by many obviously ignorant supplement companies, is promoted as being more stable and free from conversion into creatinine (a potentially dangerous creatine waste product). The truth – when compared to creatine monohydrate Kre-Alkalyn converted at a rate 35% greater than creatine monohydrate. In fact, creatine monohydrate had a conversion rate of less than 1%.
This study revealed that the very advantage that Kre-Alkalyn is marketed as having doesn’t exist at all. It’s nowhere near as stable as creatine monohydrate, degrades rapidly at a rate 35 times higher than creatine monohydrate and has no scientific evidence supporting it’s ability to help increase muscle, strength, or athletic performance.

I always say stick to the basics. Plus they cost a lot less. Micro maybe crea pure which is german micro mono clean supply and maybe nano creatine mono but other than that you really don't need to get to fancy with creatine. Heck look at my log for crea 02. I did not feel any different than on mono which is what I am using now with jacked.

Ok, no. You are always looking for the cutting edge in supps/peptides and im sure AAS if i were in that section.I always say stick to the basics.
I did not feel any different than on mono which is what I am using now with jacked.
I always wonder how legit some studies are or details, etc etc.
I would recomend trying it to see. Everyones body is different and may react a bit different to stuff.
I used Kre-Alkalyn about a year ago and i loved it. I used Sci-Fit caps. I wish i had bout 3 more bottles because for $20 and 120 caps and 2 a day(60 days) thats a hell of a deal.
I actually have it in my NP cart right now. I use Storm and thats the only other creatine i have sworn by at this point.
Ill log my next run of KreAlk, of course it means nothing but since it is my own, there can be no claims of false support.

I've been using CEE in both pill and powder form for the last 6 months and have had good results on it. the only side effect I've experienced is that it makes me really thirsty, but that's sorta a good thing! So while I wouldn't say its head and shoulders above mono, definitely don't knock it till you try it.
o yeah, and you think CEE tastes bad alone, try a mixture of CEE and arginine EE pre-workout...that'll put hair on your chest.
