The Purity of KREA-GENIC vs. Creatine

The following table shows the product demands according to the specifications of KREA-GENIC® and another buffered creatine available on the market.

Content in product

KREA-GENIC® Double Buffered

Creatine Single Buffered


< 100 ppm

< 300 ppm


not detectable

< 10 ppm


A natural decomposition product of creatine. It is produced from creatine by spontaneous non-enzymatic cyclization under the escape of water and is excreted by the kidneys. In cases of pre-existing problems, higher concentrations can possibly result in impairment of renal function. The amount of creatinine in the original product should therefore be as low as possible.

A raw material for the production of colors and pesticides. It is a compound with unspecified pharmaceutical and toxicological properties. The compound is unknown to the human body and may have harmful effects there.

The specification of the single buffered creatine implies that no high-quality pure creatine monohydrate is used for manufacturing. This is indicated by the 3 times higher value of CREATININE (Crn) already in the raw material. Thus, possible impurity is at 200% compared to KREA-GENIC®. Spoken in plain language, the user receives less effective creatine and mostly to immensely high prices.

While DIHYDROTRIAZINE (DHT) is not detectable in KREA-GENIC®, the single buffered creatine acknowledges a possible DHT impurity of up to 10 pptm.

We assume that the creatine monohydrate used for the single buffered creatine is a mixture from different manufacturers. Thus it is not possible for them to offer a constant high quality.

KREA-GENIC® is manufactured with the same strict regulations as for the pharmaceutical industry. 

Therefore, KREA-GENIC® guarantees continual and consistently high quality according to its specifications. Moreover, KREA-GENIC® is the more stable product as it shows a 3 times lower CREATININE value than the single buffered creatine.
