Best Creatine without Stomach Problems?


#1

Hey, I was looking for a creatine that was easy on the stomach for someone. So I am looking for a creatine that would yield the best results with less chance of stomach discomfort, ex. rhea, etc, etc.

However, when I talk to people about this, I got several different views. So I thought I would come here. I was told that monohydrate would be the worst creatine for stomach discomfort because it is not broken down. I was told micronized would be the better. Then I was told/read the ester creatine( or creatine with an ester( I think one is made by SNI labs ) would be better on the stomach. However, not many ppl took this. Then comes Kre alkalyn. By several I was told that Krealkalyn would be easy on stomach, but results take much longer. Then again, I talked to someone who said they had great results on Kre. I took KreAlkalyn awhile back, didn't see great results from it( maybe wasn't on it long enough ). Then again, I was also on other supps, so maybe Idk it's true effect. Also, on the ester, I see it has crystallized monohydrate creatine in it. So basically, anyone know which one would be best? When I mean best, best builder with no stomach issues? I also read about hydrolyzed creatine( it's new ). I am not sure....

Man, if only someone would write an article about Best Creatine, or Creatine facts. Just to cover the different types, which type works best, etc.

Wait, I wonder if someone already did?
