Kre-A-Fem uses a blend of kre-alkalyn creatine, calcium, black cohosh root, soy isoflavones, iron, and coenzyme Q10. They use quite a few ingredients meant to supplement a woman’s diet. Black cohosh root has been used to reduce symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, and iron is often deficient due to menstrual cycles. But the fact is, the only side effects of creatine are bloating and water retention, which you cannot avoid with creatine. You drink a lot of water so that with creatine, water can be delivered at an increased rate to the muscles. It surrounds the muscles, resulting in a bulkier appearance and increased oxygen delivery and increased energy to the muscles resulting in longer exercise regimens. Reducing this water retention would negate the basic results provided by creatine.
Kre-A-Fem is not safe to take if:
- You are breastfeeding
- You are pregnant
Possible Side Effects
- Abdominal pain
- Water retention
Overall Impression of Kre-A-Fem:
Kre-A-Fem claims to use an ingredient mainly sold to men. But then, in the same sentence, they claim to fight the way in which creatine works to get rid of side effects. But interestingly enough, they don’t use any diuretics or other ingredients that would relieve water retention and bloating. In short, they contradict themselves at every turn. They don’t use the right ingredients for weight loss or lean muscle building really. There are quite a few red flags with Kre-A-Fem. Don’t buy their product in short.
