The Original Patented Creatine HCl is Back

If you have followed our socials, attended Kris Gethin seminars, gone through his published articles, purchased his transformation books or watched his video trainers on Bodybuilding.com, you will know that Kris has recommended patented creatine HCl over creatine monohydrate for several years. To us it’s a no-brainer.

Patented Creatine HCl Pros

  • No loading phase
  • Concentrated, super soluble, and mixes easily

Vireo Systems originally synthesized creatine HCl in 2003, and after years of extensive testing, it was made commercially available in 2007. The buzz around creatine HCl quickly spread throughout the bodybuilding and athletic communities.

Fast forward to 2015 – eight years after creatine HCl was introduced to sports nutrition. It is now the preferred creatine choice for elite athletes and bodybuilders.

With Success Comes Copycats

As creatine HCl quickly and rightfully gained market share, many copycat versions hit the market. Several companies started selling cheap, low-grade, generic creatine HCl. These companies use borrowed science to support a product that is generic and not backed by studies or patents.

The top brand, the original distributor of patented creatine HCl, was Kris’ preferred choice until recently. He noticed something was different and ultimately discovered they had switched from the patented form of creatine HCl to a generic material. Within days the KM R&D team was in contact with the patent holder for creatine HCl. We met to discuss selling the real deal patented material with a brand built on ethics, not profits—Kaged Muscle®.

Breaking News

This popular and effective creatine HCl molecule is now sold under a new name: Patented C-HCl.

On September 5, 2015, Vireo Systems, inventor and patent holder of creatine HCl, granted Kaged Muscle® exclusive rights to sell C-HCl worldwide as a single ingredient (unflavored & flavored powder or capsules).

Not All Creatine HCl Is Created Equal

The patented form of creatine HCl costs three times more than the generic material, and is why all the top brands use generic versus patented to increase their profits.

Not Kaged Muscle® – we will never sell out due to profit. Quality and results are our top priorities!

If you’re obsessed with quality like we are, then there is no need to take chances when you can take patented C-HCl. Kaged Muscle® refuses to compromise quality for profit and won’t have anything to do with the generic creatine HCl used by several top brands. Instead, we purchase the genuine and patented C-HCl.

How To Make Sure You Are Getting Real Patented Creatine HCl

It’s important to make sure the creatine HCl you buy is the real deal. If you are buying creatine HCl as a single ingredient (unflavored and flavored powder or capsules), on the label it will say patented C-HCl, Vireo Systems Inc. and include PATENT #8, 962, 685/#8, 354, 450/#8, 026, 385/#7, 608, 641.

Only a select few brands were granted rights to use patented C-HCl in their pre- and post-workout formulas.

If Vireo Systems Inc. and the patent numbers listed above are not on your label… you likely have generic creatine HCl and not the real deal!

We were able to bring the real deal back and at a better value!

The taste is absolutely horrible tastes very salty and sour do not put it in you're protein/water. I mix it with evolution nutrition bcaa. You can still taste the sourness/saltyness but it's not so bad anymore. It doesn't really bother me as long as the product works I oniy been taking it for couple of days.

GET THE CAPSULES. The "unflavored" powder has a sour/bitter taste that cuts through anything. It was okay in preworkout, but tasted horrid with protein.

I switched to the Kaged Muscle HCL as the other formulations made me feel bloated and tired. I'm taking in 2x day and I definitely feel better. On it's own it mixes totally fine with water and tastes pretty good. Thanks!

I have been using this product for about 6 months and it’s hands down my favorite creatine thus far.

Honestly... I was looking forward to this and I normally don't leave reviews on anything, but this was nasty. It tasted moldy and sour. Weird because I bought the unflavored C-HCl. It would even change the taste of my preworkout. I could not tolerate it whatsoever

Feb 11, 2019

It works and I noticed an increase in strength and size. I've used different creatine supplements but this one made me break out really bad.

Jan 14, 2019

I use the Kaged Muscle Creatine HCl capsules and they work great for me. Monohydrate used to give me horrible GI problems and profuse diarrhea. HCL is so much easier on my stomach. I have a very sensitive GI to the point that I have to even take HCL with food. When I do I don't have any problems. I have been using this product for a few months. I can see and feel a huge difference. Other people have noticed the physical changes too. I recommend this product because it works!

Taking pills is way better than drinking it as it does not go bad (turn into creatinine) within minutes of mixing.

This is lovely! It does not bloat me, which I could physically feel the monohydrate do. It does not give me other types of GI issues (again, unlike monohydrate). Does it give me more power? I like to think so; my workouts are definitely more intense. Does it produce visible results? On its own definitely not - only hard training combined with a suitable nutritional approach can do that, but c-hcl sure seems to help me with it. I find the lemon lime flavor so delicious that a glass of this goes down almost as quickly as the stuff dissolves, which takes only seconds. I'll stick with this.

What’s best about this creatine is it is easily added and dissolved into other supplements. No need to load this product and I’ve had no belly bloating. The results will also speak for themselves.

Maybe this is a hasty review, but I haven't seen the results I expected- I used to use a different product, a proprietary monohydrate blend with bcaas thrown in (six star X3 which normally gets bad press for being cheap), and I was on that for a month and saw real gains, and then ran out, so I figured I'd try something new to see what happened, and the monohydrate left me a little bloated, so Ive tried this out for three weeks now- and if anything I feel more sore and less recovered and am seeing minimal if any strength or visible gains while on this- sure it's only three weeks, and maybe I need to have more patience, but as of the past three weeks I'm not sure this has helped much.... Hopefully it will come.
