Crea-TEN® Legendary Series features a variety of flavors! If you thought it tasted good before, wait until you try it now. This is the classic Creatine formula created by the man himself, Rich Piana. Due to global shortages and the fact that 5% will not use inferior forms of creatine, we have chosen to use the 9 best forms of Creatine currently available. You can be sure that 5% Nutrition will stop at nothing to continue to bring you premium quality products, shortages be damned. Unlike other companies, we do whatever it takes to get the job done
Plus, this powerful supplement has one thing no one else has: our Creatine Accelerate Blend. This is what optimally absorbed Creatine is all about! If you want to talk about results, this is the formula for you. Creatine increases cell volume for huge pumps. It also stimulates muscle growth, extends endurance, and enhances strength. Plus, there’s no loading required! You only have to take it once a day!
It’s no wonder Creatine is usually one of the first supplements a bodybuilder or athlete tries. In fact, it’s a cornerstone product. You will no doubt find it in the supplement arsenal of most advanced bodybuilders and athletes.
There’s A Reason For That - It Works!
One of the things it does is help increase the muscle’s stores of phosphocreatine, a component of the ATP energy system. That means more training energy. You can get more reps with Creatine.
What else does it do? We thought you’d never ask. Creatine supports hydration and water-based pumps by pulling water into the muscle cells. This causes them to swell in size. And to think, you probably thought the only way to get a great pump was to use nitric oxide boosters. You can and you should, but don’t forget Crea-TEN®! This combo redefines how pumped you can get. Additionally, Creatine improves strength and supports muscle growth.(1,2,3,4,5)
There’s Creatine, Then There’s 5% Nutrition Creatine!
Creatine Monohydrate falls a little short when it comes to absorption. We knew we found a better way - Crea-TEN®. This outstanding product solves the problem of poor absorption once and for all. The primary way we did this is by combining the 9 most effective forms of Creatine available. This creates an advanced blend that uses the most absorbable forms of Creatine. This alone makes Crea-TEN® an exceptional product.
We wanted to take it one step further, so we included our innovative Creatine Accelerate Blend. This ensures your muscles get the most out of our Creatine Blend. After all, it doesn’t matter how effective a supplement is if your body can’t absorb it.
One serving provides the following:
CREATINE BLEND – 5,000MG
Crea-TEN® Legendary Series is loaded with 9 of the most effective and well-absorbed versions of Creatine available. Here’s what’s in this powerful formula:
Creatine Monohydrate – This is the Creatine that started it all! Back in the early ’90s, it caused quite a revolution in the industry. Creatine Monohydrate is the most tested and proven form of Creatine available, bar none. That means it had to be in Crea-TEN®: Legendary Series! To improve the absorption of this classic, this patented version uses micronized particles. These smaller particles are much easier for the body to absorb.
Dicreatine Malate – Here’s a combination of Creatine and Malic Acid. This plays a role in the metabolism of ATP for energy. Dicreatine malate has all the benefits of monohydrate, plus it significantly increases endurance.
Tricreatine Citrate - Like Creatine Citrate, this is Creatine attached to citric acid. In this case, there are three creatine molecules. This combination improves absorption, and as noted below, is involved in the Krebs, or Citric Acid, Cycle of energy.
Creatine Citrate – This version combines Creatine and Citric Acid. As noted, this is a component of the Krebs Cycle. Also called the Citric Acid Cycle, this is an energy system that converts food into usable energy for the body. It’s tied into the ATP system of energy.(6)
Creatine Pyruvate – We’ve already seen that Crea-TEN® uses forms of Creatine that are directly involved in endurance. While Creatine is a cell volumizer, it’s also important for endurance. The more reps you can get, the better, right? Also, absorption is King in Crea-TEN®. That’s why this is such an effective product.
Creatine Ethyl Ester Hydrochloride – Here’s an early competitor of monohydrate. This form of Creatine was the first to target the absorption problems of the original Creatine. Since then, it’s still a popular alternative to Creatine Monohydrate. It helps transport Creatine directly into the bloodstream.
Creatine AKG – This is a version that attaches Creatine to an Alpha-Ketoglutarate molecule. This is another form that enhances training endurance.
Creatine Gluconate – Let’s travel back in time to when Creatine was a new supplement. Back then, it was recommended you take it with a simple sugar such as fruit juice. This enhanced absorption. With that in mind, here’s a version that targets fast absorption by attaching Creatine to glucose.
Creatine Phosphate - This is another version that deals directly with the ATP energy system. This also acts as an acid buffer. That means Crea-TEN® increases endurance in two ways.
CREATINE ACCELERATE BLEND – 1,580 MG
There’s no doubt that this Blend sets Crea-TEN® apart from the crowd. It consists of Taurine, Betaine, Gymnema Sylvestre, Banaba, and Fenugreek. To top it all off, there’s also Bioperine® Black Pepper. The entire Blend improves absorption and utilization of the ingredients.
Taurine – If you’re looking at the idea of cell volume, Creatine should be the first nutrient you think of. That’s because it created the term. What does cell volume mean? Simply, it means that water is pulled into the muscles. This causes them to swell in size. It’s also known as water-based pumps, and yes, there are cell volumizers in your favorite pump product. One ingredient often paired with Creatine to enhance this is taurine. Of course, we included it in Crea-TEN®: Legendary Series. There’s nothing like a great pump, right?
Betaine Anhydrous – This is an ingredient that’s become common in many pre-workouts and Creatine formulas. It appears to work well with Creatine. One reason is, like taurine and Creatine, betaine also pulls water into the muscles. In addition, it’s believed to increase strength and power.
Gymnema Sylvestre Extract – This is a herb that’s often in Glucose Disposal Agents. One thing it does is maintain even levels of blood sugar. Also, gymnema helps drive carbs into your muscle cells. Carbs pull in water for more muscle cell volume. As you can see, Crea-TEN®: Legendary Series supercharges cell volume and endurance, two of the primary effects of Creatine.(7)
Banaba Powder – Here’s another herb that enhances glucose delivery to your muscles. We mentioned two primary effects above. One of the keys to these benefits is absorption, and that’s what the Accelerate Blend is all about.
Fenugreek Seed Extract – You will usually find fenugreek in testosterone boosters. We’re using it here because it can reduce blood glucose levels. This means you’ll avoid unwanted insulin spikes.
BioPerine® Black Pepper – This is a popular and patented form of Black Pepper. It’s used in quite a few supplements to improve nutrient absorption.
