Creatine Ethyl Ester (CEE) is a new form of creatine monohydrate with an ethyl ester attached to the chemical chain that helps reduce "creatine bloat" and improves absorption rates. As with other creatine supplements, CEE helps with increases in strength and lean muscle mass and improves atheletic performance and quicker recovery rates.

What is Creatine Ethyl Ester?
Creatine is a compound that is found naturally within the human body, as well as in a number of dietary sources, including red meat such as beef. It has been found to provide a number of benefits for the human body, particularly in terms of athletic performance and muscle function. Creatine ethyl ester is basically a form of creatine monohydrate, that has had an extra ester salt attached to it. Esters are basically compounds that are fully organic, that are created via the reaction of alcohols and carboxylic acid, which is a process known as esterfication. Creatine is absorbed by the cells where it then helps to produce additional ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phopsphate) energy which allows the cells to function. However, with creatine monohydrate a lot of the creatine will not be adequately absorbed by the cell, so it will sit outside of the cells, going to waste, and basically causing what is known as “creatine bloat” as it draws extra water into the cells instead.
How does it work?
As mentioned, creatine EE is basically creatine with an additional ester molecule attached, which is important due to the fact that it increases and improves creatine absorption. Creatine monohydrate is known as being semi-lipopholic, which means that it can only utilize some fats to be able to permeate and enter cell walls. Esters are located in the fat tissues of animals, and as a result, the ester allows the creatine molecules to use lipids (fats) in order to penetrate cell walls and fully enter the cells. Basically, creatine ethyl ester can utilize lipids (fats) much more efficiently, allowing more of the creatine molecules to be absorbed by the cells. Once absorbed, the creatine helps the cells to generate more ATP, which in turn means that the muscle cells can function more efficiently before they begin to fatigue and tire. This is why creatine EE is considered such as important supplement in terms of athletic performance and muscle growth. It doesn’t build muscle per se, but what it does do is make the muscles work more effectively so that they work harder, making workouts and exercise more beneficial. The harder you work in the gym, the more stress you will place on the muscles and the bigger and stronger they will be re-built.
What are the main benefits of Creatine Ethyl Ester supplements?
Some of the main benefits associated with creatine ethyl ester, include:
As mentioned, due to the fact that more of the creatine can be absorbed by the muscles, the more energy they will have and the harder they will work. This allows them to generate more power, and to work harder before they begin to fatigue. This equates to increased loads and volumes in the gym, which makes workouts more efficient and therefore results in increased muscle growth.
Another great benefit is the fact that the creatine EE also helps increase natural strength levels, which again, is because the muscles are able to generate more power. This is ideal for strength athletes and individuals looking to increase their lifts in the gym, making creatine EE a very effective supplement.
Due to the fact that an additional ester molecule has been attached to the creatine, by using lipids to penetrate the cell walls, more of the creatine is absorbed by the cells, meaning that less goes to waste, and that you enjoy much more of the benefits as a result.
- Reduced "creatine bloat"
- Increases in strength
- Increases in lean muscle mass
- Improved athletic performance
- Increases recovery rates
- Reduced levels of ammonia and lactic acid
- Improved absorption rates
- And more...
How and when should it be consumed?
Health Canada Recommended Dose: Adults: 1 Scoop(s) 1 time(s) per day. Mix product well in 1-2 cups of liquid (water, juice, etc.) immediately before consumption. Store in a cool, dry place.
What can it be stacked with?
Creatine EE VS Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine ethyl ester is basically a superior version of creatine monohydrate, due to the fact that the added ester molecule allows more of the creatine to be absorbed by the cells. With creatine monohydrate, as the molecules are only semi-lipolic, they can only semi-penetrate the cell walls, so obviously not as much creatine can be absorbed. Whilst still beneficial, creatine monohydrate is not as effective as creatine EE.
