The reason that it gets destroyed is that studies show that 60% of the creatine that you take in whatever form gets destroyed by the stomach acid before it gets into your bloodstream. Further study on this problem created a solution in the form of Kre-AlkalynŽ.
Keeping creatine monohydrate stable and completely free of toxic conversion was the objective and a product called Kre-AlkalynŽ Creatine has solved the problem. Most people are still taking creatine monohydrate which calls for loading and usually a higher daily dose.
The questions on what is the best time to take creatine have ranged from when you first get up to when you go to bed at night. However study shows that you can certainly get more energy in your workouts to enable a more intense training session by taking creatine about half hour before you train.
Because of the now well proven effect that creatine has on muscle repair it is highly recommended that you take creatine after your workout as well. There have been countless studies showing that adding some sugar like grape-juice to your creatine mixture will increase the rate of absorption.
With the ever increasing amount of creatine products coming onto the market it is little wonder that there is so much misinformation around. The bottom line is that your specific choice on which type of creatine you use can make or break the results that you get from using it.
