Anybody ever tried it?
I listened to the interview of this scientist at the kre-alkalyn homepage and it sounded not bad. Maybe this stuff really works. I'll give it a try and let you know.
By the way...
the bottle does not contain a best before date. I looked everywhere.
Is this normal? Does this stuff not expire?

kre-alkalyn, does it work?
08-06-2005, 11:36 AM #2
dont do it
dont buy into the bull like i did, i read all the articles on this and it sounded really good untill i bout it at max muscle, what i can tell you is that my strength went up better then any other creatine ive used but on the down side i got really bloated and gain bad water wieght which was the whole point of kre, but get this, a week an half ago i started using eas's creatine hp elite and ive had no bloat, i still have all my cuts and my muscles look fuller my strenght has not shot up but ive add 5 extra reps to all my exercises, so too me that the better trade off, and the funny part is that elite is not a cee or kre, basically off this talk is b.s.

sci fit's kre alk worked well for me...
but i prefer CEE as my creatine product"Why do I have to be a functional training guy? Or an Olympic lifting guy or a Westside guy? Am I a HIT guy? No. Does that mean I'm a low intensity guy then? Absolutely not. I'm all of those and I'm none of those. I'm a results guy. I guess my philosophy is 'Results by Design, Not by Coincidence.' Get the best results in the least amount of time. The faster I can get results, the more I get paid."

I'm using kre-alkalyn from scifit right now. I have noticable results from it, when that is the only supplement I change (and try to keep nutrition the same, although that doesn't always happen).
The big advantage I find for kre-alk over CM is that it takes a smaller dose, and the size of each particle is smaller (compared to the HP CM). I haven't tried ethyl ester, and I have no intention to do so, leaving me unable to comment on the differences of CEE to the other two.
Between kre-alk and CEE, I doubt you would see significant differences. In the end all they deliver is creatine, nothing more. The difference is in how the creatine is delivered into the system.

sci-fit makes the best kre...the weight you put on stays on once you're off it cause it's muscle you put on, not water weight.
You can take it anytime during the day you want even with food since it's buffered and your liver knows exactly what to do with it. It's the first creatine to act like a food instead of a supp...and yes, take it on your off days.

If you're going to take kre-alkalyn, I would just take it regularly, as the whole point is to have raised creatine levels in the muscle.

I am using Sci-Fit's Kre-Alkalyn right now. I've been on it for about 2-3 weeks. The differences that I'm noticing is that I'm not gaining weight (water weight) like a mofo like I do on CM. I strength is going up very comparitable to CM. I don't have to take it with ALA and Dextrose like I did with CM. I've also tried all other sorts of CM products and all are the same to me. I tried Thermolife CrE2 capsules and hated it. Made me feel like sh*t for some odd reason. I quit taking it after 3 weeks of use. I would say that Kre-Alkalyn is by far worth it. I have no regrets, and I will not be changing my creatine supp anytime soon. I am sold on Sci-Fit's Kre, but I've yet to try any other Kre. I'd say go for it! Also, I take a heaping half teaspoon about an hour before workout and another one right after workout. Go for it, you won't regret it.

This sounds very good!
But I have 2 questions.
What about coffee? Also not good with kre-alkalyn?
And why i Sci-Fit Kre better than the Kre which is sold at the kre-alkalyn site?
I mean the "original" Kre should actually be the best, shouldn't it? I have the Kre-Alkalyn EFX cause the Sci-Fit Kre is much more expensive.

1. Isn't Kre patented (like Bioprene) to just one company even if there are various competing distributing vendors?
2. Someone posted that he looked up Kre's patent, and that it showed only Kre as being a small ammount of creatine monohydrate with soda ash to neutralize pH.
This makes me think that CEE, CM2, and those other modified creatines are a better route.
I first tried regular mono, with so-so results. Then tried Kre, with no noticeable pumps of mass improvement though I could say a slight strength gain during workouts. Then I tried SAN V-12, which seems like a regular creatine mix with some other junk, which so far works the best for me.
