No supplement in the world can take the place of basic hard work and consistency, but the right ones can certainly help.

Unfortunately, most so-called “muscle building supplements” out there fall far short of the mark.

More often than not they contain unproven ingredients that aren’t backed by real research and that are included at minimal dosages far too low to produce any significant effects.

Not only is it a waste of your hard-earned money, but you also miss out on the valuable performance and recovery benefits you could be getting with a proper supplementation approach.

With Cre-Elite, you’re getting a truly evidence-based formula you can trust using scientifically backed ingredients in their full clinical doses.




Creatine is the single most studied fitness supplement available with endless mounds of research supporting its training performance and body composition benefits.

By increasing intramuscular phosphocreatine stores, creatine supplementation allows your body to produce more ATP which is the key energy molecule during high intensity/short duration exercise. [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]

Creatine also requires additional water in order to be stored in the muscles, leading to an overall increase in fullness and definition.

Contrary to popular belief, this does not cause you to appear “soft” or “bloated”, since the water is stored inside of the muscle cell itself and not directly beneath the skin. [8, 9, 10, 11]

Additional proposed mechanisms of creatine supplementation include…

– Improved satellite cell signalling which may aid muscle repair and growth. [12]
– Increased levels of IGF-1 which may also play a role in optimizing muscle hypertrophy. [13, 14, 15]
– Reduced muscle protein breakdown. [16]
– Lowered levels of myostatin which is a hormone that directly inhibits muscle gain. [17]
– Enhanced cognitive function and prevention of certain neurological diseases. [18, 19, 20, 21, 22]


Monohydrate is by far the most thoroughly studied form of creatine available and has a near perfect bio-availability in humans without any adverse effects. [23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28]

Many supplement companies actively promote various types of “new and improved” creatine (such as creatine ethyl ester, buffered creatine, creatine hydrochloride and more), when in reality not a single one of these has ever been shown to be superior to monohydrate. [29, 30, 31]


L-carnitine is an amino acid, while l-tartrate is a salt compound that can increase nutrient absorption.

When combined, l-carnitine l-tartrate (LCLT) has been shown to increase workout performance by enhancing blood flow and oxygen delivery to working muscles. [32, 33, 34]

In addition, LCLT also improves recovery after training by reducing muscle damage and soreness, allowing you to train harder and recuperate more efficiently in between sessions. [35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40]

Another unique benefit of LCLT is its ability to optimize the hormonal status of muscle cells by increasing their androgen receptor content. This allows your existing levels of anabolic hormones (such as testosterone) to interact more effectively with the tissue. [41, 42]

Lastly, LCLT may improve insulin sensitivity. [43]

The research studied dose for LCLT is between 1-2 grams daily. [44]



Betaine (otherwise known as trimethylglycine) is an amino acid isolated from beets which acts as an osmolyte, meaning it helps cells maintain optimal fluid balance.

Similar to creatine, higher intracellular levels of betaine increase muscle cell hydration and the ability to deal with external stressors.

Betaine supplementation has been shown in several studies to increase muscular strength and power output for better overall workout performance. [45, 46, 47]

In addition, it can improve muscular endurance and allow you to train more effectively during prolonged bouts of exercise due to its effects on mitigating levels of lactate. [48, 49, 50, 51]

The research supported dose for betaine is between 1.25 to 2.5 grams.


Consume one scoop daily mixed with 8-10 ounces of water or beverage of choice. Vary liquid amount for desired taste.


Not intended for persons under the age of 18. Consult a physician prior to consumption if you have any existing medical conditions and/or are taking any prescription medications. Do not use if pregnant or nursing. Do not exceed recommended serving. Do not use if safety seal is broken or missing. Store in a cool, dry place.

    This product does the trick and has a pleasant, not overly sweet flavor. I don't always use creatine supplements, but this one is my go-to.

    Almost tastes like juice. A bit sweet maybe.

    Tastes a million times better than the pre workout.

    I have purchased many products like Cre Elite over the years and I can honestly say Cre Elite is one on the best on the market. I noticed an increase in my muscle strength and stamina within a week of use, may I add it also has a nice flavor to pair.

    The best mixture is this creatine mixed with the Pure form pre.

Your results are our #1 priority. That’s why you’ll only pay for our products if you’re 100% satisfied with them. If you purchase a RealScience supplement and are unhappy with it for any reason, just let us know and we’ll promptly refund your entire purchase. You don’t even need to go through the hassle of returning the item to us. You can simply keep the product, and we part as friends. Very few companies will offer a guarantee like this, but we truly value our customers and know that the quality and effectiveness of our supplements stands on its own.(To protect ourselves from people abusing the refund policy, this guarantee applies to first-time purchases made within 3 months and is valid on a single bottle of each product. If you purchased more than one bottle and would like a complete refund then it’s required that the additional units be sent back to us so we can re-add them to our inventory.)



Cre-Elite is a “saturation supplement”, meaning the benefits are derived from consistent daily use.

It has no immediate effects on recovery or performance, so the specific time of day that you take it simply comes down to personal preference.


There is no specific advantage in terms of safety or effectiveness when it comes to cycling on and off of Cre-Elite.

Just consume one serving per day continuously for as long as you want to experience the benefits.


Yes, Cre-Elite can be used whether your goal is to cut, bulk or recomposition. The ingredients in Cre-Elite will help you recover more effectively and maintain muscle mass/strength during a calorie deficit.


No, this is nothing more than a myth created by other supplement companies in order to charge a premium for their so-called “new and improved” versions of creatine.

Creatine monohydrate (just like all forms of creatine) does increase intramuscular hydration, but the additional water is stored inside of the muscle cell and not subcutaneously (directly beneath the skin).

If anything, creatine monohydrate will actually increase muscle definition and hardness.


Yes, both men and women can benefit equally from Cre-Elite.


While Cre-Elite is technically not “0 calorie” since it contains 4 grams of carbohydrates, the amount per serving is small enough to where your fasting period will not be negatively affected.


Everyone has different taste preferences, and we did everything possible to optimize the flavor profile while maintaining Cre-Elite’s 100% naturally sweetened/flavored status.

That said, if you do happen to find the formula a bit too sweet, you can simply add more water to dilute it.


The ingredients in Cre-Elite have been shown to be both safe and effective when used within the recommended dosage, so there should not be any side effects in otherwise healthy individuals.

In the highly unlikely event that you experience an adverse reaction, discontinue use.


Yes, yes and yes!
