Everyone that has experienced the “bloat” from creatine knows that creatine monohydrate is poorly absorbed by the
body. Creatine’s effectiveness is dependant upon the cells ability to absorb it. The poor absorption rate of regular
creatine monohydrate requires the creatine user to ingest large dosages of creatine to achieve desired effect. This in
turn can create unwanted side effects such as stomach bloating, water retention, and diarrhea.
Creatine works by drawing water into the cell. Since most supplemental creatine monohydrate is not absorbed, the
unabsorbed creatine can hang outside the target cell with the water it was initially trying to draw in. The end result is the
notorious "creatine bloat."
With the sports nutrition industry constantly evolving, scientific researchers are always on the quest for the “next big
thing”. Well folks, the next generation of creatine is here. It’s called creatine ethyl-ester, the most innovative creatine
known to man.
Before we bombarded you with technical information, let’s take a moment for a refresher course in Biochemistry. All
living cells have a lipid bilayer. This is a membrane composed only of lipid molecules. The lipid bilayer is the
foundation of all biological membranes, and is a prerequisite of cell-based life. Passive permeation is a process that
describes the diffusion of a substance across a cell membrane through the use of lipids as transport mechanisms.
Esters are organic compounds that are formed by esterification - the reaction of carboxylic acid and alcohols. The most
common esters found in nature are in the fat tissue in animals. That sounds familiar right? Now let’s get on to the
Regular creatine monohydrate is semi-lipophilic. This means that it inefficiently uses fat as
