Creatine is the most researched and proven effective supplement on the market. Creatine works, there’s no doubt about it. In fact, it works so well that it’s typically among the first supplements bodybuilders will try and it’s a foundation product in the supplement program of many advanced bodybuilders.
So exactly what does Creatine do? For starters, Creatine enhances ATP production by increasing phosphocreatine stores in the muscles. ATP fuels muscular contractions but depletes very quickly, which means it must be replenished quickly to allow continued contractions. By increasing phosphocreatine levels in the muscles, Creatine supports ATP regeneration – this means you can keep your ultra-intense reps and sets going.
There’s more - Creatine is the original cell volumizer, it supports muscle cell volume and hydration by pulling water into the muscle cells which creates the huge pumps craved by many bodybuilders. Additionally, Creatine improves strength and promotes muscle growth. That’s quite a list of benefits!
The most common version of Creatine is the original Creatine Monohydrate, however as good as this version is, it does have absorption problems.
Of course, Rich Piana 5% Nutrition understands that Creatine Monohydrate falls short when it comes to absorption. That’s why we’ve gone all out and created the most effective Creatine formula on the market - Crea-TEN! Leave it to Rich Piana to solve the absorption problems of creatine for the last time with a Creatine formula that combines the ten most effective forms of Creatine available on the market today. We wanted an even more advanced formula so we included our exclusive Creatine Accelerate Blend. This advanced Blend guarantees that your muscles soak in every drop of our 10-Creatine Blend for max results. After all, it doesn’t matter how effective a supplement is if you can’t absorb it.
Creatine Blend – 5 grams
Creatine MagnaPower® (Magnesium Creatine Chelate) – This trademarked version consists of Creatine bonded to a chelated form of magnesium for enhanced absorption.
Tri-Creatine Malate – This is a combination of Creatine and Malic Acid, which like Creatine, also plays a role in the ATP energy system.
Creatine Anhydrous – This is Creatine Monohydrate with all the moisture removed, this creates a highly concentrated type of Creatine.
Creapure® Creatine Monohydrate – This is a branded version of the original Creatine Monohydrate. This is the most tested and proven form of Creatine you can buy. Creapure uses micronized Creatine particles to enhance absorption and utilization.
Creatine Citrate – This version combines Creatine and Citric Acid, which is another component of the ATP energy system, all these ATP related forms of Creatine mean dramatically improved endurance.
Creatine Pyruvate – Like several of the other versions of Creatine in Crea-TEN, Creatine Pyruvate supports the ATP energy system for improved endurance.
Creatine Ethyl Ester – An early version of Creatine that targeted the absorption problems associated with the original Creatine Monohydrate. This version continues to be one of the most popular forms of Creatine on the market.
Creatine AKG – This is a combination of Creatine and Alpha-Ketoglutarate and, like many of the versions in Crea-TEN, targets improved endurance.
Creatine Ethyl Ester Malate – This is Creatine Ethyl Ester attached to Malic Acid. This type of Creatine continues the trend of promoting endurance.
Creatine Gluconate – Back when Creatine was just introduced, it was recommended to be taken with a simple sugar such as fruit juice to improve absorption. This version is similar in that that it’s Creatine attached to a fast-acting glucose molecule.
Creatine Accelerate Blend – 1590 mg – This advanced Blend consists of Taurine, Betaine, Gymnema Sylvestre, Black Pepper, Vanadium, Banaba, and Fenugreek and is designed to optimize absorption and utilization.
Taurine – When you think of cell volume, Creatine is usually the first nutrient you think of, or at least it should be. Cell volume means that water is pulled into the muscles which promote muscle fullness, or water-based pumps. One of the ingredients that are often paired with Creatine to enhance this process is Taurine and is included in our Accelerate Blend for that reason.
Betaine Anhydrous – This is a newer ingredient that’s become increasingly common in many Creatine formulas and pre-workouts due to Betaine’s potential to enhance muscle cell volume by pulling water into the muscles. Considered to have effects that are similar to Creatine, this compound also increases strength.
Gymnema Sylvestre Extract - This herb is usually found in Glucose Disposal Agents and helps keep blood sugar levels stable. It also helps drive carbs into your muscle cells – and carbs pull in water for greater pumps and improved hydration.
Vanadium Nicotinate Glycinate Chelate – This is a chelated mineral bond that affects blood sugar in much the same way as Chromium.
Banaba Powder – This herb enhances glucose delivery to your muscles. Recall that Creatine was originally recommended to be taken with a simple sugar to improve absorption, you can see why it’s included here.
Fenugreek Seed Extract - Fenugreek is usually thought of as a natural test boosting ingredient. It’s part of our Creatine Accelerant Blend because can reduce levels of glucose in the blood, thereby avoiding unwanted insulin spikes.
BioPerine® Black Pepper – This is a patented form of Black Pepper used in many supplements to enhance overall nutrient absorption.
