Can Creatine Monohydrate Be Really Absorbed?
- Dec 17, 2021 -

Is the absorption of creatine monohydrate really poor? Actually, most studies have found that the absorption rate of creatine monohydrate is not low. It is something that cannot be absorbed by muscles in a short time.


The excretion rate of creatine gradually increases with the amount and time of use. In fact, it gradually increases as muscle reserves increase. I want to report the results that after three days of oral creatine, the renal excretion of creatine accounted for 40%, 60%, and 68% of the dosage. This shows that it is not that creatine monohydrate is not absorbed. He can be excreted from the kidneys, indicating that creatine monohydrate has been absorbed into the blood. It's just that a large amount of creatine cannot be taken in by the muscles and is directly excreted with urine. The reason for using the method to achieve the saturation of creatine in the muscle during the shock period is based on the study of the excretion of creatine, not because of the low absorption rate.

Creatine Monohydrate

Because creatine enters the muscles through a specific process. Therefore, the rate of transport into the muscle is limited. Even if the new type of creatine is well absorbed, it can enter the blood in a large amount, but the form of entering the muscle is no different from creatine monohydrate.
