Creatine hydrochloride is an advanced form of creatine formed by combining a creatine molecule with hydrochloric acid. Experts estimate that it is 41 times more soluble in water than creatine monohydrate. It also seems to be much more bioavailable for tissues. Increased absorption means that you need smaller doses to obtain the desired results. In addition, excess water retention and gastrointestinal complaints, which often occur while supplementing with other forms of creatine, are no longer a problem. Creatine hydrochloride also does not require a so-called loading phase.
Creatine hydrochloride produces the same effects as other forms of creatine, including the most thoroughly tested creatine mononhydrate. It effectively stimulates ATP resynthesis, may inhibit myostatin activity and supports a healthy nervous system. It has anabolic and anticatabolic properties and helps improve athletic endurance and performance.
In supplementation creatine hydrochloride is available in the form of powder, which is mixed with water, and capsules. It can be often found in complex pre-workout supplements
