Ask The Trainer #135 - How Much Kre Alkalyn?


Hi. I currently weigh 215 pounds. What is the optimum dosage of kre alkalyn I should take to build size? I have been taking 5 grams/day of creatine monohydrate, but I’m switching to kre alkalyn due to the stomach issues I’m experiencing from creatine monohydrate.




Hi Clayton. Considering you’ve been experiencing stomach issues, switching to Kre Alkalyn is definitely a wise move!

It seems like just about every manufacturer is trying to establish their creatine product as unique. That’s why they offer some “cutting edge” trait that sets their product apart from all the others.

Unfortunately, many of these additives manufacturers infuse into their creatine products can do more harm than good.

You see, when they begin adding new, less studied extraneous ingredients to creatine products, many times consumers are sensitive to these foreign ingredients and experience negative side effects. As you already now know, the most well-known are gastrointestinal complications.

It’s All About Quality and Purity

Quality and purity are the other two major traits to consider with creatine supplements. People who take consume creatine products of lesser quality, commonly complain about experiencing symptoms like bloating, cramping, gas, or diarrhea. This is a direct result of creatine partials failing to properly assimilate and absorb into the bloodstream.

Instead, these creatine partials have a propensity to putrefy in the large intestine. This draws in abnormally large quantities of water, thus causing a laxative effect.

On the other hand, Kre Alkalyn is a 99.99% pure, buffered creatine monohydrate product. It’s pH adjusted so it goes where it’s supposed to: into your muscle cells!

That said, you won’t need to take nearly as much of Kre Alkalyn as you would most other creatine products for this reason. For example, a guy weighing 215 pounds should take 2 Kre Alkalyn capsules prior to your workout, then 2 more capsules immediately after.

More Isn’t Better

Many people think the “more is better” approach to taking creatine will produce better results. In fact, studies have proven this to be false. Taking exorbitant amounts of creatine is a waste of money and will only place undue stress on the subsystems of your body.

Here’s one last point. Since creatine draws more water into the muscles, less is available for other tissues of the body to use.

Keep Well Hydrated

Try drinking at least 1-2 ounces of water per kilogram (2.2 pounds) of body weight. You may need to increase this amount by 3-4 ounces per kilogram of body weight on days where you’re sweating excessively. For example, when you’re working outdoors on a hot, muggy day.

I hope this information helps answer your question. I wish you all the best of success in your health and fitness endeavors!
