Crea-TEN 10-in-1 Creatine Formula
Crea-TEN includes ten of the most effective forms of Creatine available on the market today in order to maximize your performance through increased absorption. Top benefits include muscular growth, extended power, endurance, and all without loading.
Creatine is usually one of the first supplements an athlete will try. In fact, itís so popular itís a cornerstone product in the supplement arsenal of many advanced athletes. The reason? It works! No other supplement has been as tested and proven effective the way creatine has. What does Creatine do? Creatine helps increase the muscleís stores of phosphocreatine which is a component of the ATP system of energy. This is what the body uses for short bursts of muscular energy such as high-intensity exercise. However, It depletes very quickly and must be replenished rapidly to allow continued bursts of muscular energy. Creatine supports ATP regeneration thereby allowing the athlete to work out longer. Creatine also supports muscular hydration by pulling water into the muscle cells which creates the huge pumps craved by many bodybuilders and other athletes. Additionally, Creatine improves strength and supports muscle growth.(1,2,3,4,5)
The most common version is the original Creatine Monohydrate but this version does have absorption problems and may cause gastric discomfort in some users.
Realizing that Creatine Monohydrate falls short when it comes to absorption, Rich Piana 5% Nutrition wanted to find a better way. Crea-TEN solves the absorption problems that plague many creatine formulas by combining the ten most effective forms of Creatine on the market thereby creating an advanced blend that promotes exceptional absorption. We wanted to go farther so we included our exclusive Creatine Accelerate Blend to ensure your muscles are getting every last drop of our Creatine Blend for maximum results. After all, it doesnít matter how effective a supplement is if the body canít absorb it.

Creatine MagnaPower - This is a form of Creatine bonded to a chelated Magnesium for improved absorption and has become one of the most popular types of Creatine.
Creapure Creatine Monohydrate - This is a micronized version of the original Creatine Monohydrate that first hit the market in the early 1990's. By improving the absorption potential of Monohydrate, Creapure magnifies the benefits of the most proven-effective form of Creatine available.
BioPerine Black Pepper - This has become a supplement standard due to its ability to improve the absorption potential of most of the nutrients it's paired with.
