Although I could write thousands of words on a subject matter like this, I am going to keep this short and sweet. Creatine is a unique energy source to your muscle, the rest of the body is free to use glucose, free fatty acids and the likes of for energy, and although your muscles can too, ONLY your muscles have exclusive rights to creatine!
This is why creatine is of such benefit to muscle growth and strength, so whether I suggest to opt for creatine monohydrate or Creatine Ethyl Esther (CEE), chances are that they both do the trick to some degree….I would just say that monohydrate does it slightly better.
So, there it is…if you’re going to go for a creatine then keep it simple and follow the most recent scientific evidence. The research says that creatine monohydrate is readily absorbed by the body and muscle, making it readily available for energy.
CEE is thought to be beneficial due to its reported ability to bypass the creatine transport molecules in the muscle, which theoretically means CEE doesn’t need direct active transport into the muscle, and is therefore absorbed better than monohydrate.
The theory is promising, but right now the only creatine form that has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt is… Creatine Monohydrate.
