Olimp Kre-Alkalyn 2500 is a patented formula of the buffered creatine monohydrate Kre-Alkalyn®, encapsulated in unique Mega Caps® capsules. The used form of creatine is characterized by high bioavailability, thanks to which it effectively complements the creatine stores in skeletal muscles. Creatine is an ideal supplement for all physically active people that will help increase the body's exercise capacity and facilitate the process of building the muscle mass.
Mega Caps® is a specially developed technology by Olimp, allowing to place more active ingredients in one capsule. This technology allows reducing the recommended portion, which positively affects the condition of the digestive tract.
Creatine monohydrate is the most popular form of creatine, which shows strong ergogenic properties. It is a combination of creatine and water molecules, thanks to which it influences the hydration of cells and affects providing nutrients to them. Unfortunately, it is sensitive to changes in the pH level and is inactivated by the acidic environment in the stomach, which makes it unable to perform its function.
Kre-Alkalyn® is an advanced formula of buffered creatine monohydrate combined with magnesium salts. It shows alkalizing properties and prevents the inactivation of creatine in the stomach. Thanks to this, creatine gains chemical stability, which allows the use of creatine for the production of high-energy compounds. Buffered creatine monohydrate, in contrary to other forms, does not require the additional intake of substances facilitating the transport of creatine or the use of a loading strategy, involving the intake of higher doses of creatine.
After an intake creatine is transformed to phosphocreatine (PCr), which plays an important role in the energy production at the cellular level. By providing the phosphate group, PCr contributes to the reconstitution of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) - the basic energy carrier in the body. During the course of an oxidative phosphorylation, the phosphate group is attached to the adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to re-create ATP and allow the course of many biochemical processes in the body.
Increase in muscle strength
As much as 95% of creatine stores are found in skeletal muscle, where it is used by the creatine kinase to recreate ATP from ADP. During short and intensive exertion, such as weight lifting, biathlon or Olympic triathlon, the body relies on an energy path that uses phosphocreatine as the main source of energy. The phosphate pathway allows only for a few seconds of work, because its stores are quickly depleted, however, taking creatine helps to regenerate ATP fast and maintain the ability to produce the strength and muscle power.
Improving the endurance of the body
Not only people who conduct the strength trainings will benefit from the creatine properties because it also increases the exercise capacity during a long-term physical activity. It has been shown that creatine raises the level of oxygen (VO2max), duration of exercise until exhaustion and muscular endurance. It also delays the feeling of tiredness and fatigue during training, helping to maintain high intensity or training volume.
Assistance in building muscle mass
Creatine is associated with an increase in the activity of anabolic hormones such as insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), growth hormone (GH), and testosterone. These hormones contribute to the increase in the rate of synthesis of new muscle proteins, the construction of qualitative muscle mass and maintenance of the lean body.
Support for regeneration
Creatine reduces the degree of damage to muscle fibers during the physical exertion, which then appears as a delayed onset muscle soreness. It also promotes the resynthesis of muscle glycogen, which shortens the time of muscle recovery and allows to perform the next training unit. In addition, it reduces muscle catabolism and the level of myostatin which increases with age and inhibits the maintenance and development of muscle mass.
In summary, Olimp Kre-Alkalyn 2500 is an advanced form of a buffered creatine monohydrate, characterized by high bioavailability. Its biochemical properties allow it to pass intactly through the digestive system and positively affect the exercise capacity. Creatine has strong ergogenic properties, conducive to maintaining strength and endurance of the body. It promotes the building of qualitative muscle mass and accelerates the post-training regeneration while preventing the muscle catabolism.
Most benefits from using creatine are visible when we combine it with a balanced diet and properly adjusted physical activity. It may be used in various sports disciplines, however, the largest effects are visible in case of repetitive efforts, characterized by high intensity and short duration. The most beneficial effects, in the form of increased stamina and ability to strength effort are derived in connection with high-protein diet.
Olimp is a Polish company offering dietary supplements and supplements for athletes that are made of carefully selected and safe for health ingredients. Among the products of this brand are protein supplements, amino acid supplements, pre-workout supplements and creatine. The company also allows the purchase of supplements inducing a strong muscle pump by raising significantly the level of nitric oxide in the blood and supplements restoring acid-alkine balance. Also noteworthy are supplements helping to reduce body fat, regulating metabolism and improving of the hair, skin and nails.

Creatine monohydrate is a popular and cheapest form of creatine used in sports supplementation in Poland. This is a molecule, in which are bound: creatine molecule with a molecule of water. It has a high bioavailability and tissue velocity saturation. Supports the exercise capacity (strength and endurance), accelerates muscle growth and regeneration after training exercise. Transport of creatine into the muscle cells is supported by the insulin hormone. For better effect of saturation of the tissues, a diet increasing the content of insulin in the body is indicated (carbohydrate and high protein diet) and supporting nutrients and supplements (Dietary carbohydrate and carbohydrate-protein, insulin ALA, d-pinitol or taurine). Creatine monohydrate is present in the form of mono-preparation supplements (capsules, powders, tablets) and multicomponent supplements (i.e. as a component of creatine stacks).
Dosage: depending on the form of supplement, the type of exercise and weight, normally are used one of the following models of creatine supplementation:
- cyclic supplementation : 5-10g per day in 1-3 portions during the day, 3-5g per dose. The length of the cycle for 4-8 weeks.
- cyclic supplementation with saturated phase: the first 5-7 days after 20-30g daily in 4-6 doses of 4-6g per serving, then the maintenance phase 2-10g per day in divided doses. The length of the cycle 4-8 weeks
- constant supplementation: 0,03-0,05g per kg of body weight for an extended period of time.
Kre-Alkalyn (buffered creatine monohydrate) is a patented formula of creatine, operating with better effect in smaller doses than other forms of creatine (creatine monohydrate). Use of kre-alkyn does not store water in the intercellular spaces, and muscle cells, its use provides full transportation (without support) into muscle cells. With its application, there are no digestive disorders.
Kre-alkalyn regularly used enhances the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and accelerates the growth of lean body mass. Used after exercise affects the rapid renewal of cells and reduces the feeling of fatigue. It is often used by athletes, despite the higher price then other complexes of creatine. It is available as mono-preparation supplements (capsules, and powders) as well as the complementing of creatine stacks.
Dosage: as recommended by the manufacturer 2.5 - 5g / 24h.
