    Default kre alkalyn, will it store water in my muscles?

    ive been taking creatine mono for awhile and just changed to kre alkalyn. will this stuff also store water in my muscles? if not does that mean i will lose the water weight and loose some mass?

    Not like your typical creatine. I've read reports ranging from 10%-25% normal creatine. Either way, it's not enough to worry about.

    You will lose some water weight but I don't see how you would lose actual muscle tissue.

    ya i wouldnt worry about it but you may gain a little bit less then the little bit that creatine makes you gain... the intracellular bloat actually help increase the muscle gained or so ive read..
    (notes these numbers are hypothetical)
    Example creatine mono you gain 10% more muscle mass and size
    kre alkalyn you might gain 8%
    it is still effective but the bloat caused by mono is part of why it is so effective.

    You will loose water weight from the water held just under the skin. YES it pushes water into your muscles and holds it.
    You will not loose water retention in the muscles.

    It works like creatine with the exception of NO water retention right below the shin. I used mono for 8+ years and went to Kre-Alkalyn and K-A I can take all the way threw and day of my shows.

    This doesn't answer the question, but I've taken CEE, Mono, and KA. I personally prefer KA.

    KA IS creatine monohydrate and will still store water in your muscles. What it will NOT do is cause stomach upset/bloat.
