Creatine has been available to us for long now. Its been one of the staple supplements that has been used in every supplement plan now. The newest entrant to the creatine family is the creatine HCL. Creatine HCl (hydrochloride) is simply a creatine molecule bound with hydrochloric acid. Creatine HCl has been shown to have superior properties to other forms of creatine, specifically Creatine Monohydrate, due to its superior solubility and pH alignment with the human digestive tract.
One of the biggest benefits of the creatine HCL is the solubility and mixability. As compared to monohydrate the HCL has better solubility which is why much lower dosage is required. Another advantage that the HCl creatine has over its other versions is the ability to the cross the intestinal barrier. Creatine HCL has better absorption as compared to other forms of creatine.
Even the amount of water required for creatine absorption. We have always heard trainers advising us on the extra consumption of water while taking creatine monohydrate supplementation, that is due to the amount of water needed to maximize absorption. While a monohydrate requires a larger amount of water for absorption, an HCL can be absorbed with as minimum as 10-15ml of water.
