Ten Types Of Creatine…Piana Is Crazy!

Rich and his team came up with the most creative creatine supplement to date, Crea-Ten , which included 10 effective forms of creatine and a creatine acceleration blend to get it where you need it to go, into muscle tissue to generate more ATP. Creatine is the most researched sports supplement to date and has been shown to improve muscle power, weight gain, lean mass gains, reduce fatigue, improved hydration, improved overall well-being, and increased brain function. Creatine is regularly missing in vegetarian and vegan diets, causing diminished performance, virility, mood, and cognitive function.

The amount of creatine you require depends on two things: your size and your diet. The average male generally releases about 2g of creatine per day, and women lose a bit less each day. Just taking 2g of creatine per day may not get you to saturation or into athletic performance potential, which is why 3 to 5g of creatine per day has become the dosage that covers nearly any diameter in athlete size.

Let’s dive deeper into the ingredients:

  • Creatine Anhydrous: This is the most dense creatine on the market due to the fact that it does not have any water in it, whereas creatine monohydrate is 88% creatine by weight and the rest is water. This Is important to understand because if you are needing 3 – 5g of creatine monohydrate, it really means that you’re getting 2.5 – 4. 5g of actual creatine, whereas creatine anhydrous gives you 5g of pure creatine.

  • Tri-Creatine Malate: This is three creatine molecules bonded to malic acid. Malic acid is part of the Krebs cycle, assisting in basic energy metabolism and ATP production and may have endurance benefits on its own.

  • Creatine Monohydrate: This is the gold standard of creatine supplements, and has been the most studied of all of the types of creatine on the market today. As mentioned before, creatine monohydrate is simply creatine with a water molecule attached, meaning it’s 88% creatine by weight. It has been claimed that the water molecule attached to the creatine helps to osmotically pull the creatine into the bloodstream more effectively, but this has not been proven 100%. Putting creatine monohydrate into this blend allows it to reduce the bloating and water gain that is normally found with creatine monohydrate by itself as a supplement.

  • Tri-Creatine Citrate: This form has citric acid bonded to creatine, which is another key component in the Krebs cycle. So it does improve ATP production in this supplement.

  • Creatine pyruvate: This is creatine bonded to pyruvic acid, a key part of the TCA cycle and is very important in ATP production process. But more importantly, this type of creatine has been shown to have a greater bioavailability than creatine citrate and creatine monohydrate.

Other creatine ingredients are creatine ethyl ester, creatine alpha ketoglutaric acid, creatine gluconate, and creatine phosphate to round out the list of the 10 creatine products that are included in this supplement.

Creatine Accelerated Blend features the previously mentioned products, and also includes the following:

  • Taurine: Used primarily for cell volume, as it increases cellular hydration. This can lead to all kinds of endurance gains which may be experienced on the first use.

  • Beta Anhydrous: This product has been found to be more commonly used in creatine in the newer supplements coming out. The benefits of this product are numerous and are primarily health and athletic in origin.

  • Gymnema Sylvestre Extract: This product has been used to lower blood sugar levels by raising the pancreas insulin response, raising the response allows for increased nutrient uptake which allows creatine to get into the muscle tissue.

  • Fenugreek Seed Extract: This ingredient has a reputation as a natural tester on boosters, and is rich with a number of micronutrients.

  • BioPerine: This is a black pepper extract used to increase the absorption of ingredients and delay their breakdown. This may actually work better with the rest of the creatine blend than the creatine itself.

  • Chromium: Chromium is a critical essential nutrient to help with proper insulin signaling, which is necessary for our goals here.

So in the Rich Piana classic way, Crea-Ten, with its 10 forms of creatine, proves that it is once again a great product.
