The NEW! 5150 Legendary Series delivers a supercharged punch with over 400mg of Caffeine per serving, plus the revolutionary energy and nootropic Cocoabuterol®
WELCOME TO 5150 LEGENDARY SERIES HIGH-STIM PRE-WORKOUT
If you’re a true master of the craft and lifting is your life then you already know 5% Nutrition is the only LIFESTYLE to GROW by. The very name of this product should be warning enough that you’re heading into deeper waters.
What is the meaning of 5150?
Rich Piana originally went with the name “5150” for this ultra-high stimulant pre-workout because he wanted to convey that this pre-workout was not for the ordinary, but for only the serious stim junkies among us. And while Rich wasn’t insinuating that taking a few scoops of 5150 pre-workout would result in a 72-hour “involuntary psychiatric hold”, he wanted to convey that this product meant business!
Have you grown bored of other pre-workouts, having ‘tried them all’ before getting this point? Do the results you seek lay beyond the normal conditions of training? Do you need to focus and energize your workout while hydrating your muscles and keeping your body anabolic?
If yes, then you may have met the qualifications to start training like a true 5%ER; to enter the territory where only a few thrive: mass monster territory. If you routinely seek the pain of a long training session and routinely need to be spotted by at least two smaller freaks of the gym, then we’d like to welcome you to 5150 Legendary Series High-Stim Pre-Workout.
STIM-CRAZY CAFFEINE COMPLEX - 513 mg
Consisting of Caffeine Anhydrous, Dicaffeine Malate, Theobromine, Green Tea, Yerba Mate Extract, Guarana Extract, Green Coffee Bean Extract, and Gotu Kola Extract. This is a precise combination of eight types of caffeine and sourced specifically to create a smooth, extended energy curve while effectively eliminating the jitters of caffeine and the “caffeine crash” that accompanies most highly caffeinated products.
The new and improved 5150 Legendary Series, High-Stim Pre-Workout has arrived. This supercharged formula will have the stim-junkies lined up, again! With just a single scoop of 5150 over 400mg of total caffeine will begin to take hold and course through your veins. Prepare yourself for what’s next, blasting yourself into a gym session fueled by a blend of caffeine frp, 8 sources:
COCOABUTEROL® Cocoa Alkaloid Extract (Theobroma caco L.) Cocoabuterol® is a new dietary weight loss supplement to activate thermogenic fat burning within the body while boosting your energy and mood. The natural alkaloids in Cocoabuterol® can significantly increase cAMP via beta-adrenoceptor which activate thermogenic fat burning and muscle building functions. This translates to fat burning PLUS support for the building of lean muscle tissue without the side effects.
Compared with caffeine, Cocoabuterol® doesn’t have the edginess often associated with caffeine while it lasts longer and while similarly balancing the onramp and offramp of caffeine into your body, enhancing caffeine’s most desirable qualities. Because Cocoabuterol® acts to smooth out the caffeine curve, you’re unlikely to experience the shakes and jitteriness associated with excessive caffeine consumption.
CAFFEINE ANHYDROUS Commonly used as a fast-acting energy source, Caffeine Anhydrous has been used in many of the best pre-workouts and energy-based products alike. This ingredient will assist with mental alertness as it stimulates the central nervous system, making your energy output much more enhanced in a short amount of time.
DI-CAFFEINE MALATE What makes Di-Caffeine Malate so interesting is the time-released energy production that is so heavily influenced and reflected by this ingredient. Just like caffeine, this specific ingredient helps improve energy levels and mental focus. Best of all, Di-CM helps to improve endurance and stamina, giving you the energy to combat fatigue accrued during your workout.
THEOBROMINE Theobromine is similar in structure to caffeine and falls into the same class of methylxanthine compounds. Although theobromine is similar in structure to caffeine, it’s only about 1/10th the strength of caffeine.
Theobromine is somewhat unique in that compared to most stimulants, it's actually been shown to decrease blood pressure. It has mild vasodilating properties, similar to the amino acid Arginine, and is believed to increase blood flow.
YOHIMBINE HCL Yohimbine hydrochloride (HCl) is a synthetic form of Yohimbine, the active chemical found in Yohimbe Tree bark, and widely studied for its fat-loss and aphrodisiac properties. Research shows that it can increase blood flow, nerve impulse transmission, and excitability in the genital area.
OTHER SOURCES OF CAFFEINE Caffeine sourced from Green Tea leaves, Yerba Mate Extract, Guarana Seed Extract (Paullinia cupana), Rauvolfia Canescens (Alpha-Yohimbine), Green Coffee Bean Extract (Seed), and Gotu Kola Extract (Centella asiatica).
Joint Defender is a comprehensive joint support formula featuring over a dozen well-dosed ingredients designed to promote optimal joint health and function. Hardcore training needs a hardcore support supplement.
You hit the weights brutally hard every work out and you pride yourself on never missing a workout. That’s dedication! Over time, that kind of dedication can take a toll on your joints. If you want to keep making progress, you have to take care of your joints but you don’t want to depend on just any joint formula, you want one as hardcore as you are – Joint Defender by Rich Piana 5% Nutrition!
With ingredients like Cat’s Claw, Joint Defender can ease pain andpromote joint health. There’s also Type II Collagen, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM, to support joint repair. Improved joint health is a key part of your recovery. After all, your joints need to be ready to go, just like your mind and muscles.
Joint Repair Complex
D-Glucosamine,Chondroitin Sulfate, andMSMare three common joint supportingredients that work together to help overall joint health.
KollaGen II-xs™ Collagen Type II- This ingredient is effectively dosed at 2 grams, one of the biggest doses you will find. Collagen is a component of joint cartilage that, when used as a supplement, can improve jointhealth.(1)
L-Proline– This is a non-essential amino acid that’s a component of collagen and therefore plays an important role in joint health and function.(2)
Hyaluronic Acid– Joint Defender utilizes an effective dose of this ingredient which is a component of the synovial fluid that surrounds and lubricates the joints. This is common in skincare products when it should be more common in joint health products.(3)
Cats Claw Powder– This is a popular herb with an extended history of traditional use for various ailments such as joint health, digestive problems, and whole-bodyvascular health.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa)– Curcumin is being recognized and used worldwide in many different forms for multiple potential health benefits including joint health.
Bioperine® Black Pepper Extractis a popular absorption enhancing ingredient which supports improved absorption of the nutrients in Joint Defender.
KollaGen II-xs™ Collagen Type II – This is a patented, advanced Collagen that is the result of continuous, innovative research and is designed to help reduce pain as well as increase joint mobility.
Bioperine® Black Pepper Extract – This popular compound improves the absorption and utilization of the nutrients it is paired with.
Kill It Reloaded
The NEW Ultimate Pre-Workout! – Energy, Pumps, Focus, Endurance & Performance with GlycerSize™, Caffeine, L-Citrulline, & Creatine!†
This is the newest, most potent version of a classic and it’s designed to completely dominate the stim-based pre-workout category!
When you walk into the gym, you want a pre-workout that gives you everything you need to drive you through your most intense training sessions. Extreme energy, ultra-sharp focus, huge pumps, improved endurance, increased strength, and the fabled mind-muscle connection.†We designed Kill It Reloaded Legendary Series to be your go-to pre-workout every time you train.
Optimized Nitric Oxide Blend Kill It Reloaded Legendary Series maximizes muscle pump in two ways: we use ingredients that optimize muscle cell volume and by pulling water into the muscles for insane pumps.
GlycerSize™ We start the process with a complex including a huge 3 grams of the revolutionary GlycerSize™, the new King of Glycerol supplements. This compound solves the stability problem that’s dogged every other form of Glycerol. GlycerSize™ is hands-down the most stable form of Glycerol available on the market today. This cutting-edge ingredient will not clump, absorbs better, and mixes easier than any other type of Glycerol on the market.
Next, we’ve added Taurine to help pull water into the muscles and push the pump even further. There’s also 1 gram betaine, which combines with GlycerSize™, taurine, and 3 types of creatine for insane water-based pumps.3
We don’t stop there though! We take the pump to the extreme by increasing nitric oxide production thanks to 4 grams of pure L-Citrulline2...not the diluted Citrulline/Malic Acid combination used by most companies to save money. We’re talking pure L-Citrulline, the most effective nitric oxide booster on the market. Then, we add Nitrosigine™, a patented complex consisting ofbonded arginine silicate. This ingredient stimulates N. O. production and increases vasodilation, which means bigger pumps than ever before.
Every pre-workout gives you something for muscle pumps but no other pre-workout on the market gives you the powerful 1-2 combination that Kill It Reloaded Legendary Series does! Dare to compare and you will see that the competition doesn’t even come close.
3 Forms of Caffeine for a jitter-free workout! Caffeine Anhydrous + Caffeine Citrate + InFinergy™ Di-Caffeine Malate
Now with 328mg of caffeine from three different sources, our innovative Stim Blend consists of Caffeine Anhydrous, Caffeine Citrate, and InFinergy™ Di-Caffeine Malate. Don’t worry, unlike other pre-workouts, our stimulant blend avoids the jitters and mid-workout crash. You’ll experience an immediate rush of energy while keeping that energy flowing throughout your workout.1
Creatine Blend A powerful 2.5-gram Creatine Blend was long overdue to be back in a pre-workout again. The Kill It Reloaded Creatine Blend combines Creatine Anhydrous, Creatine Monohydrate, and Creatine Pyruvate to provide maximum endurance and improved strength, as well as increased cell volume and it does so without gastric discomfort or bloating. That’s Creatine done right. To block fatigue and give you maximum endurance, there’s 2 grams of Beta-Alanine so you can push through the pain zone and hit those growth reps; exactly what a pre-workout should do.
Nootropic Blend Our advanced Nootropic Blend now has 500 mg of Choline Bitartrate, plus 100 mg L-Theanine and 100 mcg Huperzine A to ramp up focus, increase motivation and give you the must have mind-muscle connection. Now you can Kill It in the gym even more every time you walk in.
Raw Coconut Water Concentrate Finally, we’ve added 100mg of Raw Coconut water Concentrate for hydration. Who wants to be dehydrated during your workout, right?
All Day You May
Are you serious about gains? ADYM has become the industry standard for maximum recovery and muscle growth supplement drink. Perfect for intra-workout and post-workout recovery.
If you’re serious about gains, you need to begin, live, and end your day in an anabolic state. And to do that, you need to begin with ALL DAY YOU MAY. It is your best choice to have maximum muscle recovery and growth and can be enjoyed throughout the day, between meals, and following a workout.
Unlike lesser quality BCAAs available, ALL DAY YOU MAY or simply ADYM, features a number of powerful ingredients to maximize performance including HICA which improves Leucine utilization. What's the point of a clinical dose if you can't get the benefit from it!?
There are also several exclusive blends to provide you with digestive enzymes, joint support, electrolytes, liver support (NAC), and strong intracellular buffer led by beta-alanine to help you push past muscle fatigue. Did we mention that ADYM also tastes insanely good!? Only the best and only from Rich Piana's 5% Nutrition.
BCAA Blend – Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine–6 Grams
Of the three BCAAs, Leucine is the one that has the most research supporting its ability to stimulate protein synthesis. We use an innovative 10:1:1 ratio which means you’re getting aHUGE 5-gram dose of this powerful anabolic activatorin every serving of ADYM for maximum effect. The additional two BCAAs work synergistically with Leucine to promote greater results than Leucine can by itself.(1)
What are CEAAs or Conditionally EAAs? They are amino acids that cannot be made by the body under certain conditions, such as stress. We can’t think of anything more stressful than the brutally tough workouts you put yourself through several times a week so to us it makes perfect sense to include them in ADYM.
Glutamine- A big part of dealing with the stress of an intense workout is recovery and that’s where Glutamine comes in. This is an amino acid that can help keep you in an anabolic state and it’s no coincidence that it works synergistically with the BCAAs to stimulate protein synthesis, act as an anti-catabolic during training, and promote post-workout recovery.(3)
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate– We’ve included this version of Carnitine because it supports testosterone production. It doesn’t get any more anabolic than that!
NAC– One of the drawbacks of bodybuilding is the stress we put on our livers. It just comes with the territory. So we included NAC, a powerful ingredient that supports liver health and function. If you consider all the food and supplements most hardcore bodybuilders take in it should become apparent why you want to think long-term as far as keeping your liver healthy and functioning at peak levels.
Amino Acid Support Blend – L-Taurine, Raw Coconut Water Concentrate, HICA, Bromelain, Blueberry Fruit Powder – 960 mg
Taurine– This is a popular amino acid that’s often included in energy drinks and pre-workouts. We’re using it here for its powerful cell volume effects. Taurine pulls water into the muscles, hyper-hydrating them and blowing them up big time!
Coconut Water Concentrate – If you’re sweating, it means you’re working hard. It also means you’re losing electrolytes. If you don’t replace the electrolytes you’ve lost, you risk muscle cramps as well as dehydration. Coconut Water is a complete fluid replacement ingredient: it has vitamins, the key electrolyte minerals, anti-oxidants, amino acids, and enzymes for advanced hydration.
HICA (Alpha-Hydroxyisocaproic Acid) – This is a metabolite of Leucine that works synergistically with the BCAAs & EAAs to stimulate protein synthesis. Additionally, it binds ammonia in the muscles during hard training thereby blocking fatigue.(4)
Blueberry Fruit– This is amongst the most effective antioxidants on the market and helps your immune system combat workout-induced free radicals.
Bromelain– This is the digestive enzyme that’s found in pineapple and has been added to ADYM to help you digest the high-levels of protein most bodybuilders consume. You want the full benefits of the protein you take in, right?
Because the act of training is catabolic it tears down muscle tissue and drains glycogen stores. Your muscles react and a spike in lactic acid levels occurs, downing pH levels to prevent your muscles from enduring more damage. You know this as "muscle failure". We want to interrupt this process so you can push past the point of failure and keep going deep into the growth zone.
The intra-cellular buffer helps to form a barrier between your muscles and this dramatic increase in lactic acid as your pH levels decrease in an attempt to halt the muscle breakdown.
You hit it hard every time you walk in the gym and strap on your belt. You can bet your muscles aren’t the only thing taking a beating. Your joints are too – your knees, elbows, and shoulders the most. That’s why ADYM includes a joint support complex and we’ve used two of the most powerful joint ingredients available. Trust us, you’ll thank us later!
Liver & Organ Defender
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Liver & Organ Defender is a complete vital organ support formula that is effectively dosed to promote optimal health of the liver, heart, prostate, kidneys, and skin.
The aggressive supplement and nutrition choices that bodybuilders follow can put immense strain on their liver and other internal organs. Liver & Organ Defender is designed to support your vital organs despite the extreme lifestyle habits of bodybuilders and other athletes. Taking care of your health makes a lot of sense, especially now, and with Liver and Organ Defender you can rest assured that you cover your needs whether you are on a cycle, post cycle or simply looking for daily overall health support.
The liver is about the same size as a football yet it’s actually the largest vital organ in the human body. Weighing in at just over 3lbs. it’s responsible for literally hundreds of chemical actions. Bodybuilders tend to put a lot of stress on their liver; much more than the average person. With a higher than normal protein intake and all the aggressive supplements bodybuilders typically use, the liver winds up working overtime to filter everything. If you want to live the bodybuilding lifestyle maintaining a healthy liver is critical to your success.
N-Acetyl Cysteine – 1,000 mg NAC is the amino acid Cysteine with an acetyl group attached, which makes it more stable as well as more absorbable. So what does it do? NAC metabolizes into glutathione once it’s been digested by the body. Glutathione is a potent antioxidant, effectively scavenging free radicals and acting as a liver detoxifier that is very effective in promoting liver health by weakening the harmful effects of toxins and helping to remove heavy metals such as lead and mercury.(1)
Milk Thistle Powder – 600 mg Milk Thistle is one of the most effective liver support ingredients on the market and has an extended history of use in traditional medicine. The active ingredient in Milk Thistle is known as Silymarin which has several health benefits.(2,3)
Twin Tiger– L-Glutathione – 30 mg Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that consists of the amino acids glutamine, glycine, and cysteine that binds and detoxifies toxins both in the liver and the body as a whole.(4) The combination of Milk Thistle and Glutathione is one of the things that sets Liver & Organ Defender apart from the competition because most products do not contain both.
The importance of a healthy heart goes without saying. After all, your heart is vitally responsible for pretty much everything that keeps your body alive -- ranging from oxygen transport to the proper function of your immune system. High cholesterol levels can be a side effect of the bodybuilding lifestyle while high blood pressure can be the result of rapid weight gain from the use of aggressive supplements. Taking steps to lower cholesterol as well as blood pressure in order to improve heart health leads to longevity in the sport and healthier, longer life.
Hawthorn Berry Powder1,100 mg Hawthorn Berry has a long history of use in traditional medicine as a natural heart remedy. The medicinal benefits of Hawthorn Berries are due to phytonutrients such as tannins, flavonoids, proanthocyanidins, and phenolic acids.(5,6)
Alpha-Lipoic Acid – 400 mg ALA is an organic compound that’s made by the body mainly in the mitochondria. ALA is a potent antioxidant that can reduce oxidative stress.
Garlic Extract – 300 mg While very popular in recipes of all types, garlic has a long medicinal history as well. Many people think garlic may help in vascular health.(7,8)
Dimagnesium Malate – 250 mg Magnesium is an essential mineral that’s involved in literally hundreds of functions, some of which tie in directly to bodybuilders and athletes. Beyond being involved in calcium absorption and bone health, Magnesium is also involved in nerve transmission and muscular health (which includes the heart) as well as contraction. That should be enough to make any bodybuilder want to go grab a bottle or two! This version combines Magnesium with Malic Acid, which is involved in the ATP system of energy.
CoQ10 – 25 mg Like Alpha Lipoic Acid, Coenzyme Q10 is found in the mitochondria and is involved in energy metabolism. It also helps improve cardiac function, enhance blood flow, and increase levels of HDL (good) cholesterol.(9) Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance that’s found naturally in the body, mainly in the mitochondria where it’s a component of the ATP energy process. As much as 95% of the energy required by the body is generated by the ATP system and the heart is no exception. In fact, the heart, liver, and kidneys all have high energy needs and naturally contain high concentrations of Co-Q 10. Co-Q 10 acts as an anti-oxidant and promotes a healthy heart.
The prostate gland is male-specific and is part of the male reproductive system. It is primarily responsible for helping to make semen. The primary health risk associated with the prostate is that it can enlarge which can indicate prostate cancer.
Saw Palmetto – 1,000 mg Saw Palmetto is a plant that originates in the southeastern United States and been used since the early 1900s. Today, Saw Palmetto is commonly used to support the health and function of the prostate gland.(10)
The kidneys are one of the most important organs in the body and are primarily involved in filtering as well as the elimination of waste products from the blood. Additionally, the kidneys are involved in blood pressure regulation. The bodybuilding lifestyle tends to put extra stress on the kidneys so it makes sense to provide extra support.
Cordyceps Sinensis – 500 mg Cordyceps is a mushroom with a long use in traditional Chinese medicine as a general tonic. Mushrooms are in fact a fungus; as such Cordyceps is a fungus that lives on caterpillars in the high mountain regions of China. In recent years it has been used to help delay fatigue, fight stress and support kidney health.(11)
Everyone wants clear, healthy skin. Often viewed as evidence of good health, a good complexion sets a good visual example and helps enhance the image of bodybuilding as a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, hormones have a large part in problems with acne which is certainly an unpleasant skin condition at best. Liver and Organ Defender helps promote healthy skin and reduce the problems associated with acne.
Zinc Bisglycinate Chelate – 300 mg Zinc is an essential mineral that supports immune system health, plays a role in testosterone production and is involved in protein metabolism. Zinc performs many more functions including improving skin conditions.(12)
Selenium Glycinate Chelate – 70 mcg Selenium is an essential trace mineral that can help decrease scars caused by acne, increase skin elasticity and help protect the skin from the effects of oxidative stress.(13)
Full As F*ck
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Full As F*ck is an advanced pump pre-workout formula that uses active ingredients designed to increase nitric oxide levels and muscle cell volume, so your working muscles look Full As F*ck!
When you're attacking the weights with everything, you've got there's no feeling more satisfying than an extreme pump in the working muscles. An excellent muscle pump can transform your physique right before your eyes, forcing your muscles to look FULL AS F*CK. There's more than just a visual benefit to a great pump because the extreme increase in blood flow carries needed nutrients and oxygen to your working muscles so you can perform at your best all workout long.
Of course, many bodybuilders and athletes search the market for the most extreme pump enhancing product they can find. Full As F*ck is the product you want if you want the ultimate pump enhancer. Full As F*ck gives you fully disclosed, mega doses of nitric oxide and cell volume enhancing ingredients all designed to ramp up N.O. production and fill your muscles with water for the ultimate pump experience.
L-Citrulline- 4 Grams We're not talking about Citrulline Malate here; we're talking about pure L-Citrulline. Many of those other pump products combine Citrulline with Malic Acid. If you take a closer look, you'll see that Malic Acid tends to make up most of the total Citrulline content of this product. Citrulline is an essential part of this active ingredient lineup because it converts to Arginine in the liver and promotes longer-lasting, more intense pumps than Arginine itself.(1)Full As F*ck contains 100% pure L-Citrulline in a very generous 4-gram dose.
L-Taurine- 2 Grams Taurine seems to be in quite a few supplements lately, almost always pre-workouts and energy drinks. Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid found predominantly in the brain, heart, and skeletal muscles of the body. Taurine reduces the nerve impulses in the brain that increase blood pressure, thereby reducing resistance to blood flow. Additionally, Taurine acts to increase muscle cell volume by helping to draw water into the muscles.(2)
AgmaMax Agmatine Sulfate- 1 Gram If you want to talk about getting a great pump, one of the first ingredients you'll take a look at is Agmatine Sulfate. This powerful ingredient is generally considered to be one of the more effective pump producers on the market. Agmatine is derived from Arginine and can promote powerful, long-lasting pumps by extending the effects of Arginine.(3)
Glycerol Monostearate - 1 Gram Glycerol Monostearate increases muscle cell volume by binding with and pulling water into the muscles for dramatically increased muscle cell volume. Also, Glycerol improves hydration and increases levels of endurance.(4)
Dan-Shen Extract- 650 mg Also known as Red Sage, this powerful herbal extract has been used in Chinese medicine for literally thousands of years.
Beet Root Powder- 500 mg Research has indicated that Beet Root increases blood flow because of the high levels of nitrates it contains. Additionally, Beet Root improves exercise performance and lowers levels of fatigue.(6)
L-Norvaline- 250 mg Arginase is an enzyme that can limit the production of nitric oxide which means your pump is not as extreme as it could be – no one wants that! The good news is you can block this enzyme with L-Norvaline thereby extending the effects of nitric oxide.(7)
Hesperidin - 100 mg This ingredient is a heart-healthy flavonoid that's associated with Vitamin C and known to enhance blood circulation.(8)
BioPerine® Black Pepper Extract - 5 mg BioPerine® Black Pepper Extract significantly improves the absorption of the other nutrients paired with it and has been utilized in this manner for over 20 years. Increased absorption translates to enhanced activation of ingredients, allowing you to achieve the most extreme muscle pump possible when usingFullAs F*ck.
AgmaMax Agmatine Sulfate This version of Agmatine Sulfate uses a unique manufacturing process to create the purest Agmatine available.
Drink Sleep Grow
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Drink Sleep Grow® is a combination of EAAs, CEAAs, and BCAAs featuring the revolutionary Active TR™ L-Leucine along with GH Releasers and a special Joint Support Blend that creates a powerful nighttime recovery formula unlike anything else on the market.
You know what it takes to make gains – eat plenty of protein, lots of quality carbs, train brutally hard, recover and do it all over again. If you’re doing it right, you’re getting in your protein all day long. What about at night when you’re asleep? What can you do to keep the hours you spend sleeping anabolic? You can take Drink Sleep Grow Nighttime Aminos by Rich Piana 5% Nutrition!
Drink Sleep Grow is a powerful combination of BCAAs featuring Active TR L-Leucine, an advanced time-released form of Leucine, along with EAAs and CEAAs. Plus you’re getting a hardcore Growth Hormone Recovery Blend and a Joint Support Complex that creates a formula designed with serious lifters in mind!
If you want to keep growing, you need to recover as hard as you train. Drink Sleep Grow was designed to stimulate muscle growth no matter what time it is!
BCAA Blend Active TR™ L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine – 6 grams
Drink Sleep Grow contains an advanced BCAA Blend that stands out from the crowd with a timed-release form of L-Leucine known as Active-TR™ L-Leucine. This is a next-generation form of Leucine that is timed to begin release 2 hours after you ingest it. This means extended protein synthesis stimulation for the ultimate in muscle growth and recovery.(1)
Glutamine - A big part of dealing with the stress of an intense workout is recovery and that’s where Glutamine comes in. This is an amino acid that can help keep you in an anabolic state and it’s no coincidence that it works synergistically with the BCAAs to stimulate protein synthesis, act as an anti-catabolic during training, and promote post-workout recovery.
GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid)– This is a non-protein amino acid that acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter. This means that it helps to promote relaxation, which is critical to being able to fall asleep every night. Often used as a sleep aid, research indicates it also stimulates GH release.(2,3)
Mucuna Pruriens - This Ayurvedic herb is a natural source of L-Dopa which is a precursor to dopamine, a neurotransmitter that is involved in the release of GH.(4,5)
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate – When you think of Carnitine you usually think of fat transport. We ’ve included this version of Carnitine because it supports testosterone production and has anti-catabolic properties.
NAC – One of the drawbacks of bodybuilding is the stress we put on our livers. It just comes with the territory. For this reason, we’ve included NAC, a powerful ingredient that supports liver health and function. If you consider all the food and supplements most hardcore bodybuilders take in it should become apparent why you want to think long-term as far as keeping your liver healthy and functioning at peak levels.
It goes without saying that healthy joints are essential to your success in the gym. While you can take a Joint Support formula during the day, why not experience the benefits while you sleep? It’s for that reason we’ve added a Joint Support Blend to Drink Sleep Grow. After all, your joints need to recover too.
The latest clinical studies indicate that protein synthesis is stimulated to a greater degree if additional EAAs are included, which is why we have added them to the formula. You can count on Rich Piana 5% Nutrition when it comes to staying on top of the most recent research.
Active TR™ L-Leucine – This advanced ingredient is a special time-release form of L-Leucine that begins to digest slowly 2 hours after ingestion, making it ideal for nighttime use.
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, it’s so popular it’s a key product in the supplement arsenal of almost all 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 muscle’s stores of phosphocreatine which is a component of the ATP system of energy. The body utilizes this for short bursts of muscular energy like high-intensity exercise. However, It depletes rapidly and must be replenished quickly to allow continued bursts of muscular energy. Creatine supports ATP regeneration by allowing the athlete to work out longer. Creatine also supports muscular hydration by pulling water into the muscle cells which creates those huge pumps craved by many bodybuilders and 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 further so we included our exclusive Creatine Accelerate Blend to ensure the muscles are getting every last drop of our Creatine Blend for maximum results. After all, it doesn’t matter how effective a supplement is if the body can’t absorb it.
Creatine Blend 5 grams - Crea-TEN consists of the 10 most effective and best-absorbed versions of Creatine:
Creatine MagnaPower® (Magnesium Creatine Chelate)– This is a trademarked version of Creatine that’s bonded to a chelated form of magnesium for improved absorption. Chelated minerals are considered one of the best forms of minerals when it comes to absorption.
Tri-Creatine Malate– This form is a combination of Creatine and Malic Acid, which also plays a role in energy metabolism. This means that this version of Creatine should result in increased muscular endurance over other versions.
Creatine Anhydrous– This is Creatine Monohydrate with all the moisture removed thereby creating a more concentrated Creatine.
Creatine Monohydrate– This is a trademarked version of the original Creatine that started it all way back in the early 90’s, Creatine Monohydrate. This version is the most tested and proven form of Creatine on the market. To improve absorption, our creatine uses micronized Creatine particles.
Creatine Citrate– This version bonds Creatine with Citric Acid, another component of the body’s energy system that should help increase muscular endurance.
Creatine Pyruvate– One thing Crea-TEN does and does very well is take the idea of supporting the energy systems of the body and including several types of Creatine that enhance muscular energy, such as Creatine Pyruvate. This makes sense since one of the main benefits of Creatine is increased endurance.
Creatine Ethyl Ester– This is one of the first versions of Creatine that targeted the absorption problems associated with the original Monohydrate version and has since become one of the most popular forms of Creatine on the market.
Creatine AKG– This version attaches Creatine to an Alpha-Ketoglutarate molecule which targets improved endurance.
Creatine Ethyl Ester Malate– This is the Ethyl Ester version that is further attached to Malic Acid. The trend here is pretty straightforward: emphasize the endurance aspects of Creatine. If you can optimize the energy systems of the body you can optimize your workouts.
Creatine Gluconate– Back in the day when Creatine was a new supplement, it was suggested to take it with a simple sugar such as fruit juice to enhance absorption. This version targets that idea by attaching Creatine to a fast-acting glucose.
Creatine Accelerate Blend 1590 mg - Consisting of Taurine, Betaine, Gymnema Sylvestre, Black Pepper, Vanadium, Banaba, and Fenugreek. This complex improves absorption and utilization.
Taurine– When the talk turns to cell volume, Creatine is usually the first nutrient you think of. Cell volume simply means that water is pulled into the muscles thereby increasing muscle fullness. This is also known as water-based pumps. One of the ingredients that are often paired with Creatine to enhance this process is Taurine and is included in Crea-TEN for that reason.
Betaine Anhydrous– This is a newer ingredient on the supplement marketplace that’s become increasingly common in many Creatine formulas due to Betaine’s potential to enhance muscle cell volume by pulling water into the muscles.
Gymnema Sylvestre Extract- This is a potent insulin-enhancing herb often found in Glucose Disposal Agents. Gymnema helps keep blood sugar levels stable and helps drive carbs into your muscle cells - which also means it pulls in water for more muscle cell volume.(6)
BioPerine® Black Pepper– This is a patented form of Black Pepper used in many supplements to enhance overall nutrient absorption.
Banaba Powder– This herb is used because it enhances the delivery of glucose to your muscles. If you recall that Creatine was originally combined with a simple sugar to improve absorption you can understand why Banaba is included here.(8)
Fenugreek Seed Extract- Fenugreek is typically thought of as a natural testosterone booster. We’re using it in our Creatine Accelerant Blend because it has also been shown to help lower levels of blood glucose thereby avoiding unwanted insulin spikes.(9)

Knocked the F*ck Out
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Knocked The F*ck Out is a hardcore sleep-aid/recovery formula that includes herbs, amino acids and natural ingredients like GABA, Melatonin, Chamomile, 5-HTP and Tyrosine that will help you fall asleep and stay asleep all night.
There’s no way around it. No matter how hard you train or how well you eat, you won’t grow if you don’t recover. Recovery is one of the keys to muscle growth and one of the keys to recovery is deep, restful sleep. If you consistently fail to get a good night’s sleep, you’ll experience the destructive effects of catabolic hormones such as cortisol. What are these negative effects? Two examples are muscle loss and potential fat gain.
Knocked The F*ck Out by Rich Piana 5% Nutrition is the ultimate natural sleep aid! This product combines herbs, amino acids, and natural ingredients to create a formula that will help you relax and fall into a deep, restful sleep. We’re talking about ingredients like GABA, Melatonin, Chamomile, 5-HTP, and Tryptophan, just to name a few. So get some serious sleep and keep those gains coming!
GABA- 750 mg
This is a non-protein amino acid that acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter. This means that it helps to promote relaxation, which is critical to being able to fall asleep every night. Often used as a sleep aid, research indicates it also stimulates GH release.(1,2)
L-Tyrosine- 750 mg
Tyrosine is a very popular cognitive enhancer that increases levels of the neurotransmitters noradrenaline and dopamine. Increased levels of these neurotransmitters improve mood and focus while relieving feelings of anxiety as well as stress.(3)
Chamomile- 650 mg
Chamomile has an extended history of use in traditional medicine in helping to stimulate sleep. The relaxing effects of Chamomile may be due to naturally high levels of an antioxidant known as apigenin that attaches to specific receptors in the brain that help promote relaxation and stimulate sleep.(4)
Inositol- 500 mg
Also known as Vitamin B8, this ingredient promotes increases levels of serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter that can help you relax and fall asleep.(5)
Lemon Balm- 500 mg
This herb has a long medicinal history as a relaxant that helps the body cope with stress.(6)
L-Tryptophan- 500 mg
This essential amino acid has a long history of use as a sleep aid due to its ability to stimulate serotonin release in the brain. As stated above, serotonin is a brain neurotransmitter that helps the body relax and fall asleep.(7)
Passion Flower- 200 mg
This is a flowering plant with an extended history in traditional medicine to promote relaxation. It’s thought to work with GABA to help calm the mind.
Hibiscus Flower- 200 mg
This herbal extract provides numerous immune and digestive benefits as well as helping the body cope with anxiety.
L-Phenylalanine- 75 mg
Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that’s a precursor of the amino acid Tyrosine, which as we have seen above is an amino acid that combats anxiety and stress while supporting focus.
L-Theanine- 75 mg
This is an amino acid that’s thought to help combat stress and may support your ability to fall asleep. Additionally, it can support a state of non-drowsy relaxation making it popular to help tone down the effects of Caffeine.(8)
5-HTP- 30 mg
5-HTP is made in the body from Tryptophan and is converted in the body into serotonin, which in turn can be converted into the hormone melatonin. Melatonin plays an important role in regulating sleep. Its levels begin to rise in the evening to promote sleep and fall in the morning to help wake you up.(9)
Melatonin- 8 mg
Melatonin is a hormone that works with your body’s circadian rhythm, which is your body’s internal wake/sleep clock. It lets you know when it’s time to sleep and when it’s time to wake up. Levels of Melatonin begin to increase when it gets dark outside, telling your body it’s time to sleep.(10)
Freak Show Insulin Mimicker
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition's Freak Show® is the Most Powerful Insulin Mimicker Available! What if you could use a product that could utilize those excess carbs for muscle growth and glycogen replenishment instead of fat storage? Now you can, thanks to 5% Nutrition!
The Most Powerful Insulin Mimicker Available!
Isn't it amazing how quickly carbs became the "enemy"? The truth is, if you're hunting gains, you need quality carbs to help you build maximum muscle. After all, carbs are the preferred fuel source of the body. That's the energy your muscles use to power you through your workouts. The thing is, too many carbs and you risk the excess being stored as fat. The question is, how can you eat the carbs you need without fear of creating excess fat storage?
What if you could use a product that could utilize those excess carbs for muscle growth and glycogen replenishment instead of fat storage? Now you can, thanks to Rich Piana 5% Nutrition and the newFreak Show®. Leave it to 5% Nutrition to create an innovative formula that mimics the power of insulin without the downside. You know 5% Nutrition, so you can expect an epic, overdosed product using only the most effective ingredients and designed to make use of and control those extra carbs!
The key to what happens in the body when you eat a lot of carbs lies in the body's own hormones. Insulin is one of the body's primary anabolic hormones and some will say it's the most powerful – yes, even more, powerful than testosterone. That may be, but insulin is like a double-edged sword – it can cut both ways. Despite its anabolic power, eat too many carbs throughout the day, especially simple carbs, and the result will be insulin spikes - which means fat gain. That's not the scenario we want!
Ah, but what about anabolic power! Insulin controls how the cells in your body absorb and utilize nutrients, such as carbs and protein. It also has a strong role in the process of protein synthesis. When you eat carbs, they not only help the process of muscle growth, they also pull water into your muscles which helps create that full as f*ck look every bodybuilder wants to see! So, carbs themselves are not the problem it's how insulin is produced and consumed in your body when you eat too many carbs which is the core of the issue.
Ingredients That Work
Thiamine (B1) 100 mg–A member of the B Complex family of vitamins, Thiamine is essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates as well as BCAAs.(1)One of the functions of Thiamine is to bind with ATP to form thiamine diphosphate, which is a coenzyme involved in carbohydrate metabolism. Additionally, this coenzyme plays a role in the utilization of pentose in the hexose monophosphate shunt, which is an alternative glucose oxidation pathway.
Gymnema Sylvestre 1,000 mg –This powerful insulin-enhancing herb originates in India and helps keep levels of blood sugar stable as well as drive carbs into your muscle cells which also pulls in lots of water for insane muscle fullness and it has the research to back it up.(2)
We’ve given you a huge 1g dose – we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Banaba Powder 500 mg –This is one of the most potent herbs available when it comes to insulin mimickers because it can enhance the delivery of glucose to your muscles, which means more energy to power you through your most brutal training sessions.(3)It will also enhance your body’s sensitivity to insulin.
When it came to the dose, we didn’t mess around – we wanted dosages that will get the job done!
Berberine 350 mg –This powerful herb has earned quite a reputation for being extremely effective at reducing blood glucose and enhancing glucose absorption in your muscle cells.(4)This is a serious glucose regulator meant for carb-heavy meals, so you can eat those pre-workout carbs and get them where they need to be – your muscles!
Cinnamon Extract 300 mg –This popular spice is not only a great addition to countless recipes and foods, it also has been clinically shown to lower levels of blood glucose.(5)
Bitter Melon (4:1) 300 mg –This is an age-old remedy used for respiratory problems. Clinical studies have shown that Bitter Melon can lower levels of blood glucose in the body, as well as increased serum levels of protein.(6)
Na-R[+]-Alpha Lipoic Acid 200 mg –Alpha Lipoic Acid is a fatty acid that occurs in the mitochondria of every cell in your body. It plays a primary part in energy metabolism and is also well-known as a potent antioxidant.(7)This form attaches ALA to a sodium salt which makes it extremely soluble and much more bioavailable than regular ALA.
Chromium 400 mcg –Chromium is an essential trace mineral that plays a key role in insulin metabolism, in fact, it is absolutely required for insulin to function properly.
Fenugreek 100 mg – Wait isn't that usually an ingredient found in test boosters? Yes, however, Fenugreek has also been shown to help lower levels of blood glucose so it's a natural fit for Freak Show®.(8)
There's No Comparison on the Market
It couldn't be more clear: there's no other insulin mimicker to compare with what Freak Show® provides. Effective dosing of ingredients clinically researched to perform. Freak Show® is a powerful formula that can take your gains to new heights!

Ingredients That Work
D-Aspartic Acid - 3,120 mg
This is a proven natural testosterone booster that will quickly get your test levels back on track! We use the full clinical dose for optimal results. DAA is one of the most effective natural test boosters available with clinical research backing its effectiveness, with one study showing an increase in natural test levels by 40% in just 12 days, that's exactly what you need when you're getting your hormones back to normal.(1)
Brassaiopsis Glomerulata 500 mg - This innovative ingredient is actually a tree that originates in Vietnam with extended medicinal use. It contains several aromatase inhibitors that show good estrogen inhibition potential.(2)
DIM 300 mg - Also known as Diindolylmethane, this ingredient is one of the components that make up Indole-3-Carbinol and originates in such vegetables as broccoli, kale, and cauliflower.
It is a regulator of estrogen metabolism in the way it helps keep estrogen levels in balance. It does this by preventing the conversion of testosterone into estrogen.(3)DIM works synergistically with Brassaiopsis to keep the estrogen under control.
Stinging Nettle 300 mg - Also known as Urtica Dioica, this plant has a long history of traditional medicinal use. Stinging Nettle contains the active ingredient 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran, which is a lignan that has been suggested to increase levels of free, or usable, testosterone, which is the amount of testosterone the body allows to be used for muscle growth.(4)
Longjack 300 mg - Research shows that Longjack is mainly an adaptogen, which means it helps the body deal with stress. Longjack helps to balance the cortisol/testosterone ratio, which is very important to maintaining an anabolic environment post-cycle.(5)Longjack works synergistically with many of the other ingredients in Post Gear, such as DAA, Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin D to get your test levels back to full speed.
Milk Thistle 200 mg- One of the most popular herbs on the market, this herb supports liver health. In fact, Milk Thistle has been used for centuries as a general tonic for overall liver function.

Not to mention, what could be more helpful coming off a cycle? Of course, 5% Nutrition uses only the highest-quality version.(6)
Acacetin 50 mg - This ingredient originates from Damiana and is thought to inhibit aromatase, which is an essential part of estrogen synthesis. Acacetin works synergistically with Brassaiopsis and DIM to keep estrogen levels under control.
Artichoke 50 mg - Artichoke has a wide range of benefits, we've included it in Post Gear to work synergistically with Milk Thistle to support normal liver health and function.
Vitamin D 125 mcg- Vitamin D has been shown in recent years to have quite a few important benefits, one of which is an ability to support increased testosterone production.(7)
Zinc 30 mg,Magnesium 70 mg,Vitamin B6 10.5 mg- More commonly known as ZMA, this combination of Zinc, Magnesium, and B6 has been shown to promote increases in testosterone. The primary study that backs this up was conducted in 2000 using NCAA football players as test subjects. In this 7 week study, researchers gave ZMA supplements to test subjects who were working out twice a day. At the end of the study, researchers found a significant increase in the test subjects' levels of testosterone.
Keto aSALT with goBHB Salts
Keto aSALT is an exogenous ketone formula that contains goBHB® salts that help your body use ketones for energy and help you achieve a state of ketosis quickly.
The process of putting your body into a ketogenic state can be a taxing experience. The body has to transition from its preferred energy source, glucose, to ketones such as BHB (Beta-Hydroxybutyrate) and the process is a little unenjoyable. The process can be much easier on your body with the use of exogenous ketones which increases levels of ketones in the blood thereby replacing glucose as the body’s main energy source. This allows you to experience all the benefits of the Ketogenic Diet including fat loss, improved focus, more energy, and improved performance.
Additionally, exogenous ketones work great if you’re already following the Keto Diet and need to get back into a state of ketosis. As your body shifts into ketosis glucose becomes unavailable so it will be forced to use ketone bodies like BHB for energy instead. The thing is, this process can take several unenjoyable days. BHB Salts can get you there faster. if you’re already in ketosis, BHB Salts can support workout energy and focus. Of course, the best BHB product you should be using is Keto-ASalt by Rich Piana 5% Nutrition! Keto-ASalt provides a huge 11 grams of BHB Salts in the form of patented goBHB® for maximum effect.
goBHB™ is a ready-to-use ketone body that provides bodybuilders and anyone leading a demanding lifestyle while following the Keto diet more energy and focus. When you’re working out, you’ll experience improved workout performance because goBHB is a ketone body that provides energy to the muscles and brain. Another huge benefit of goBHB salts is that they are considered electrolytes which is important because many Keto dieters tend to consistently experience dehydration.(1)
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate– 200 mg
Carnitine has become a supplement with a wide range of uses, including the ability to improve post-workout recovery and stimulate fat metabolism.(2)
Coenzyme Q10– 25 mg
CoQ10 is an effective antioxidant that occurs naturally in the body and has a major role in the process of creating cellular energy. Without enough CoQ10, the mitochondria cannot function correctly which means reduced cellular energy production.(3)
Potassium Citrate– 89 mg
Potassium is an important mineral that’s included here for its electrolyte benefits, which include regulating fluid balance, nerve signals, and muscle contractions.(4)
goBHB® Salts – This is a groundbreaking ready to use ketone body that once ingested will help you achieve a state of ketosis quickly.
Liquid L-Carnitine 3150
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Liquid L-Carnitine 3150 is a mega-dose formula and combines the four most effective forms of Carnitine with the powerful “Super Carnitine” ingredient Gamma-Butyrobetaine Ethyl Ester HCl (“GBB”) to create one of highest-performing liquid L-Carnitine products on the market today.
Liquid L-Carnitine 3150 is an advanced Carnitine formula that contains a massive dose of the four most effective forms of Carnitine available. In true 5% fashion, this formula goes further than the rest by featuring the innovative “Super Carnitine” or Gamma-Butyrobetaine Ethyl Ester HCl. Just as you’ve come to expect from 5% Nutrition, our liquid L-Carnitine 3150 contains an over-dosed amount per serving with 3,150 mg of this powerful Carnitine formula products on the market. Added together with the “Super Carnitine” GBB, creates an elite Liquid Carnitine formula. When it comes to promoting fat loss by converting stored fat into energy, stimulating thermogenesis, supporting recovery and muscle growth, it’s hard to beat Liquid L-Carnitine 3150!
Thiamin– 25 mg Part of the water-soluble B-Complex family of vitamins and known as Vitamin B1, Thiamin helps the body utilize carbohydrates for energy.
Carnitine Blend– 3150 mg This is a huge dose; no other Liquid Carnitine formula can touch it! Leave it to 5% Nutrition to create an innovative complex of four highly effective forms of Carnitine, each with their own benefits, and then tie it all together with the advanced ingredient GBB.
What is Carnitine?It’s a molecule derived from the amino acids lysine and methionine that’s naturally produced in the liver and kidneys. Typically but incorrectly classified as an amino acid, Carnitine enables the transport of fatty acids to the mitochondria to be used as energy by the body.(1)
As fatty acids are transported by Carnitine, they are converted into ATP through the process of beta-oxidation. This is an ongoing process that increases during intense exercise as fatty acids are burned for fuel. Carnitine is conditionally essential which equates to not everyone being able to reach adequate levels of the Carnitine by diet alone, thus supplementation is a good idea to support overall health.
Beyond supporting fat loss, Liquid L-Carnitine 3150 is a blend of several different Carnitines with each one providing unique benefits. Some of these benefits include increased endurance because fat is being converted into ATP energy which powers your muscles through your workouts, as well as nitric oxide stimulation, improved recovery and muscle growth support.(3)
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate– Also known as LCLT, this form of Carnitine is absorbed faster than other forms and supports recovery as well as muscle growth.(4)The primary way LCLT affects muscle growth is by increasing the androgen receptor that allows testosterone to work more effectively in the body which leads to improved recovery and the stimulation of lean muscle growth.(5)
Acetyl-L-Carnitine– Also known as ALCAR, this form of Carnitine has a wide range of benefits, such as supporting the metabolism of stored fat to be used in the production of ATP energy by the body. ATP is the energy your muscles use to power you through your workouts. ALCAR is also involved in the synthesis of acetylcholine which means it has cognitive benefits such as promoting a positive mood as well as supporting learning ability.(6)
Glycine Propionyl L-Carnitine– Also known as GPLC, this is a combination of Propionyl-L-Carnitine (PLC) and the amino acid Glycine. This version not only supports the production of ATP energy by enabling the transport of fatty acids to the mitochondria, it also promotes nitric oxide production for improved nutrient and oxygen delivery to your working muscles. Of course, you can expect a good pump.(7)
Gamma-Butyrobetaine Ethyl Ester HCl– Also known as GBB, this is a relatively new ingredient that’s earned the nickname “Super Carnitine” and is the molecule that your body converts into L-Carnitine when it’s producing its own Carnitine. Some studies are showing that plasma concentrations double after taking GBB which is one reason it’s earned the title “Super Carnitine”.(8)
GBB also has potent thermogenic properties, which is effective for stimulating fat loss because the core temperature of the body is increased and you end up burning more calories. Additionally, like GPLC, it also stimulates nitric oxide production.(9)
The benefits are clear. Liquid L-Carnitine 3150 not only stimulates the transport of fatty acids to be used as fuel by the body, but it also stimulates nitric oxide production which pushes the pump but also increases nutrient and oxygen delivery to your working muscles while removing waste products, thereby increasing performance and improving endurance. While this would be enough for most Carnitine products, we take it to the extreme by including LCLT to support testosterone production, and therefore recovery as well as muscle growth. Finally, the innovative GBB activates thermogenesis, which means Liquid L-Carnitine 3150 fights fat in multiple ways. This innovative formula comes in two delicious flavors: Watermelon Candy and Outrageous Orange.
Bigger By The Day
Bigger By The Day is an all-natural muscle builder that is without a doubt the strongest formula of it’s kind on the market. This is a formula that’s so hardcore, only 5% Nutrition could have created it!
When it comes to natural muscle builders, there’s a number of products currently available that like to brag about how hardcore they are. You’ve seen the ads and heard the hype. Enough of the garbage out there, we’ve all listened to it long enough and decided it was time to step in and show them how the big boys do it. 5% Nutrition has defined the word 'hardcore' of the supplements world for years and has designed the most potent legal muscle builder on the market – Bigger By The Day!
We took the strongest legal, all-natural muscle building ingredients available and combined them into one incredible product, and we dared to make it stronger than any other product of its kind. Take a look at these ingredients:
Laxogenin – 300 mg – Also known as 5 Alpha Hydroxy Laxogenin, this ingredient is classified as a plant steroid (brassinosteroid) that has two primary benefits: the ability to increase protein synthesis and the ability to increase strength. It also has anti-catabolic benefits, making Laxogenin a potent all-natural ingredient. (2) The effective dosing range is 75 to 150 mg so of course, we dosed it right at the top of the effective range, then doubled it!
Epicatechin (90% sourced from Green Tea extract) – 200 mg – This ingredient is a flavonol that’s commonly found in dark chocolate and green tea. This compound has both muscle growth properties and the ability to stimulate nitric oxide production for increased pumps as well as enhanced nutrient delivery to your working muscles. One of the primary ways it stimulates growth is by inhibiting myostatin. What is myostatin? It’s a type of protein known as a growth factor that regulates how big your muscles can get, in effect it puts a ceiling on muscle growth. By inhibiting myostatin you can effectively raise the ceiling of your potential for gains.(4,5)
HICA – 500 mg – Also known as A-Hydroxyisocaproic Acid or Leucic Acid, HICA is a metabolite of leucine, which means that when we metabolize leucine our body it breaks down into HICA and other metabolites such as HMB. Here’s how it works, the leucine that is broken down into HICA is first metabolized into KIC and then broken down further into HICA, at this point, it becomes available for use. Clinical studies have indicated that HICA can stimulate gains as well as reduce muscle soreness. (1)
Leucine – 200 mg - Leucine is one of the BCAAs and without a doubt the most powerful of any amino acid. It is directly involved in the stimulation of the mTOR pathway which in turn activates protein synthesis. If gains are your goal, leucine should be very high on your list of supplements. (3) By combining leucine, HICA, and laxogenin, we have created a powerful trio that will effectively stimulate protein synthesis.
Bioperine® Black Pepper Extract – 10 mg – Ultimately, the effectiveness of any product comes down to how well it’s absorbed, and we wanted to be sure this powerful muscle builder is fully absorbed for maximum benefits. This ingredient is well-known as an effective absorption enhancer, improving absorption of ingredients such as nutrients and ingredients found in supplements (6)
When it comes to the most potent all-natural hardcore muscle builder that was designed for serious results, Bigger By The Day delivers!

SHAKE TIME IS WHAT PROTEIN POWDER SHOULD BE - NO WHEY, 25G OF REAL FOOD SOURCES ONLY!
Shake Time is a protein powder designed to live up to the high standards of the Man himself, Rich Piana. Use it post-workout, first thing in the morning, or anytime you need protein. Make no mistake, this isn’t just another protein powder. This is a unique, real-food based, Rich Piana-style protein powder. Rich Piana was not the type of guy that bought into the whole protein powder thing. He believed that your protein sources should come from real food first and foremost. Having said that, we understand that you can’t always sit down to a real food high protein meal. Sometimes, the only thing that works is a protein shake, especially if you lead a busy lifestyle. Not to mention you want a fast-digesting protein source when you wake up in the morning and after you’ve workout out. Let's face it, there’s no better way to get in some protein quickly than a shake. Leave it to Rich Piana 5% Nutrition to come up with the type of real food based protein powder Rich would be proud of!
One serving of Shake Time contains:
2g fat from MCTs and whole eggs.
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Immune Defender is a powerful formula that supports immune health and function. This is a serious formula designed to dramatically boost your immune system.
5% Nutrition has met the challenge to create an advanced immune defense formula that will promote maximum immune health and function. We combined vitamins, minerals, herbs, and powerful nutrients to create the most comprehensive immune health product on the market. Now more than ever, your health should not be taken lightly. Whether you’re a bodybuilder, powerlifter, or just want to be the healthiest you can be, get the ultimate in protection with Immune Defender.
Take a look at these ingredients:
Vitamin C – 1000mg– Vitamin C is the vitamin people turn to when it comes to immune support, and for good reason; it’s a potent antioxidant that’s important for a healthy immune system. Many companies use 500 mg or even 250 mg, but not 5% Nutrition. We gave it a potent 1g dose.(1)
Vitamin D3 – 125 mcg– You might not think about Vitamin D when it comes to immune health. However, you can trust that we put it in Immune Defender for a specific purpose. White blood cells are one of the most important components of your immune system.(2)Vitamin D supports the immune defense properties of white blood cells.(3)Additionally, Vitamin D deficiency may result in respiratory tract infections. Deficiency can be a problem during certain times of the year, such as in the winter. Also, many people aren’t spending a lot of time in the sun anymore, which can also cause significant deficiency.(4)This means that in an advanced immune product, Vitamin D should be a primary ingredient.
Zinc Citrate – 30mg– Zinc is an important trace mineral that has a wide range of benefits. Research suggests that it can help shorten the duration of a cold as well as protect against respiratory tract infections. A zinc deficiency weakens the entire immune system.(5,6,7)Typically, zinc is not absorbed well by the body, therefore it needs to be combined with another compound. While there are several forms, Zinc Citrate is one of the best forms of immune support.
Elderberry Fruit Extract – 500mg– This ingredient is a common and effective cold and flu ingredient. It’s a medicinal herb that is typically used to fight infections, such as bronchitis, sinusitis, the flu, and the common cold. The berries are high in antioxidants, flavonoids, polyphenols, and vitamins. No wonder it's such a popular immune enhancer.(8)
Reishi Mushroom–400 mg- This is a medicinal mushroom that has a long history of use in enhancing the immune system, stress reduction, and helps lower fatigue.
Echinacea – 250mg– This herb is a common cold and flu ingredient that effectively supports immune health and helps the body fight respiratory infections. No effective immune formula should be without it.(9)
Turmeric Powder–105 mg- Turmeric has a positive impact on immune system health and function. One way it does this is by supporting white blood cell health. That means Turmeric works synergistically with vitamin D.
Olive Leaf Extract–50 mg- Olive leaf contains an active ingredient called oleuropein. This active ingredient has strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.(10)It’s in Immune Defender because of its antimicrobial and antiviral benefits which can help fight respiratory tract infections.
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine–50 mg- N-Acetyl L-Cysteine promotes antioxidant production by increasing the amount of glutathione in the body, one of the most effective known antioxidants. Glutathione supports immune health and also combats oxidative stress. Additionally, it can help decrease cellular damage.(11)
Ginger Root Extract–50 mg- Many people think of Ginger as a relief for stomach discomfort, or even a spice for food. However, Ginger supports normal immune health and function as well.
Odorless Garlic Extract 4:1–25 mg- Garlic is one of the most popular immune system boosters around. Many people take garlic whenever they experience the slightest cold or flu symptoms. It supports immune health by binding to cold and flu invaders, destroying them. It also works well with zinc to promote overall immune health. Of course, we use only the best odorless garlic.

Kill It is the original Rich Piana 5% Nutrition pre-workout that uses lower Caffeine with more pump and performance ingredients thereby creating a complete all in one pre-workout. This is the reboot of one of Rich's favorite products known for its great flavor and great pump!
When it comes to your pre-workout, you don’t want another product that is overloaded with stimulants yet offers little else. Kill It was created to give you enough energy and focus to push through your toughest workouts and at the same time power the pump as well as increase strength and improve performance. This makes Kill It a great first-time pre-workout as well as the right choice for bodybuilders that want less caffeine and more performance.
Creatine Blend– 1,500 mg
Leave it to Rich Piana 5% Nutrition to get this proven ingredient back in a pre-workout! The Kill It Creatine Blend combines Creatine MagnaPower®, Creatine Monohydrate, and Creatine Pyruvate to promote maximum endurance and improved strength as well as increased cell-volume and it does it without gastric discomfort or bloating.
Creatine MagnaPower –This is a trademarked form of Creatine that is bonded to Magnesium, an essential mineral required for nerve transmission and muscular contraction. This version improves Creatine’s absorption and utilization.
Creatine Monohydrate – This is a version of the original Creatine that started it all way back in the early 90’s, Creatine Monohydrate. This version is the most tested and proven form of Creatine on the market. To improve absorption, this uses micronized Creatine particles.(1)
Creatine Pyruvate -This version binds Creatine with Pyruvate, another compound that’s involved in the Kreb’s Cycle.(2)
NO/Endurance Blend– 7450 mg
This potent Blend is a combination of pump and performance enhancers using proven, branded ingredients.
Beta-Alanine –This well-known ingredient works indirectly to buffer acid and reduce fatigue by increasing levels of carnosine in the working muscles thereby allowing you to push your reps and sets deep into the growth zone. Carnosine consists of the amino acids beta-alanine and histidine, occurs naturally in the body, and is one of the primary compounds that buffers acid buildup in the working muscles.(3)
Taurine -Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid found predominantly in the brain, heart, and skeletal muscles of the body. Taurine reduces the nerve impulses in the brain that increase blood pressure, thereby reducing resistance to blood flow. Additionally, Taurine acts to increase muscle cell volume by helping to draw water into the muscles.(4)
AgmaMax™ Agmatine Sulfate -Agmatine is a metabolite of L-Arginine, an amino acid that’s the original nitric oxide booster. Agmatine increases nitric oxide levels indirectly because it inhibits arginase, the enzyme responsible for the breakdown of Arginine. This means longer and more “dense” pumps due to the extended nitric oxide effects.(5)
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine -This is the most bioavailable form of Tyrosine available which means a smaller amount is all that’s required to get the job done. Tyrosine is a very popular cognitive enhancer that increases levels of the neurotransmitters noradrenaline and dopamine. Increased levels of these neurotransmitters improve mood and focus while relieving feelings of anxiety as well as stress.(6)
COPMax™ Creatinol-O-Phosphate –Similar to Beta Alanine, COPMax buffers lactic acid thereby increasing workout performance and endurance. Additionally, it’s thought to increase anaerobic glycolysis which is another aspect of the ATP muscular energy system.
Caffeine– 250 mg
There’s just enough Caffeine in Kill It to provide energy and focus without the jitters. We’ve combined it with Tyrosine and Rhodiola to create an effective but not overwhelming energy, focus, and alertness effect.
L-Norvaline –This is a version of the BCAA L-Valine. L-Norvaline works by inhibiting the enzyme arginase, the “shut off valve” for NO production in the body. If you inhibit this “valve” you can dramatically increase nitric oxide production.
Rhodiola Rosea Extract– This herbal extract is considered to be an adaptogen as well as a cognitive enhancer. Specifically, Rhodiola has been shown to relieve mental fatigue and increase motivation.(7)
MagnaPower® Creatine – This patented ingredient consists of Creatine bound to chelated Magnesium to enhance Creatine absorption and improve ATP synthesis for increased muscular energy. (http://www.creatinemagnapower.com/)
AgmaMax™ Agmatine Sulfate – AgmaMax™ is the purest, highest quality version of Agmatine available. (http://www.vitajoyusa.com/product/agmatine-sulfate/)
COPMax™ Creatinol-O-Phosphate – A form of COP that utilizes a unique manufacturing process for maximum absorption and benefit.
