Ask The Trainer #92 – Taking Kre-Alkalyn On “Off” Days


Hi, I just wanted to know that on my day off from the gym, do I need to still take Kre-Alkalyn, or do I not take it on my days off from the gym?

Thank you,



Hi, Hasnain,

I get this question frequently. My simple answer for you is YES, you should still take Kre-Alkalyn on your “off” days from the gym. Of course, everyone who knows me understands that for every simple answer I give, there’s always going to be a more comprehensive explanation along with a simple yes, or no.

So, here is my comprehensive answer…

Creatine is one of the few supplements on the market that has withstood the test of time. In fact, it’s the most researched bodybuilding supplement in the world. Furthermore, throughout the years it has consistently proved to be extremely effective among the plethora of clinical trials that it has been subject to.

On training days, Kre-Alkalyn is extremely advantageous because of its role in boosting cellular levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which enhances energy, and message sending throughout the body.

This is why creatine is well known for benefiting the nervous system, the endocrine system, as well as the muscular system.

With that being said, creatine is extremely beneficial to take on your “off” days, which is actually when you recover and grow!

Creatine is critical to the efficiency of these processes because of how it is a critical component involved in a cascade of chemical reactions in the body that contribute to protein synthesis.

Anything like Kre-Alkalyn that contributes to protein synthesis will enhance muscle recovery, and growth on your days off from the gym.

I hope this helps make sense of your question. I wish you all the best of success in your training!
