Improved Creatine Stability and pH Profile for Kre-Alkalyn

This article has been retracted.

Is referred to by “Retraction: J. Golini, Improved Creatine Stability and pH Profile for Kre-Alkalyn, International Journal of Pharmacology, Phytochemistry and Ethnomedicine. Vol. 1, pp. 20-22, 2015”, International Journal of Pharmacology, Phytochemistry and Ethnomedicine. Vol. 6, pp. 87-87, 2017.

The article was proved to be a duplicate of another publication. The manuscript was submitted to the Journal of Biosensors & Bioelectronics (JBB) three months earlier than to the International Journal of Pharmacology, Phytochemistry and Ethnomedicine (IJJPE). It was published online in JBB nearly two weeks later than the same manuscript had been submitted to IJPPE. The author stated that he was not aware of the circumstances which led to the redundant publication. Thus the article was subject to retraction for the purpose of eliminating the redundant publication and discouraging the efforts on duplicate publication malpractice. The author was acknowledged about the decision to retract the article and agreed to the retraction. Thus, the paper has been declared retracted and marked accordingly.

Creatine modification for commercialization has included many variations to increase its stability. The current report assesses the stability of a sodium bicarbonate buffered creatine sold under the brand name Kre-Alkalyn under various conditions. Kre-Alkalyn is shown to have a 6 year stability profile under accelerated testing. It maintains a high pH over time compared to normal creatine and can be augmented with additional stabilizing buffers. This stability and buffering profile may serve useful in providing continued creatine availability.
