There are 1000s of them out there. Preworkouts are coming out left and right, each guaranteed to be the strongest and effective when getting results in the gym.
KRE-EX by Titan Nutrition is a preworkout created in February 2017 with a new formula they says makes it BEST preworkout of the year.
KRE-EX a mix of Creatine, BCAAs, and over 7 grams of Nitrix Oxide. There's also a series of nootropics and stimulants contained in the KRE-EX ingredients, which will help give you a combination of increased focus and energy.
Brian King say it's the best thing you'll ever try. Naturally, when it comes to hype around a product, Suppreviewers gets interested in figuring out the truth.
Let's see what's really going on with KRE-EX. We've looked at customer reviews, side effects, testimonials, and got nerdy with some of the science behind it.
The Low Down on the KRE-EX Formula: The Ingredients
The most obvious thing to me when deciding on a pre workout it’s of course WHAT’S IN IT. Most people have no clue what they’re looking at when they see a “formula” or a “matrix” and to be honest most look like a bunch of hyped up names.
Let’s take a look at what they’re actually putting in the KRE-EX.
Below is the nutrition label itself, which by the way at first glance doesn’t look that impressive to me:
Let’s get into each ingredient in KRE-EX and determine whether or not this formula lives up to the claim of being the BEST in all of 2017…
Buffered Creatine Fusion
The buffered creation fusion seems to look like a heavy dose of standard creatine monohydrate, followed by two other key ingredients called Betaine Anhydrous and Creatinol O-Phosphate.
Betaine Anhydrous is a natural substance found in beets that seem to have a lot of energy and endurance benefits. Creatinol O-Phosphate  not be be confused with actual creatine, is a mild strength booster, but nothing really special.
Other ingredients include Magnesium Phosphate, and Sodium Bicarbonate, a compound shown to neutralize lactic acid buildup and help muscles work more efficiently.
Volumizing Endurance Fusion
- Citruline Malate: a natural endurance booster shown to improve repetition count by as much as 50% in one study.
- Glycerol Monosterate:
- Pine Bark Extract:
BCAA Construction Fusion
This is basically a mixture of BCAAs. They’re great to take before and during a workout, so unless you mind taking them separately, this is important.
It contains Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, three of the most essential amino acids you can take. At 4 grams of BCAAs per serving, this is a good amount to take right before you workout.
Maximum Focus Fusion
Most of the nootropic, cognitive enhancing ingredients like L-Tyrosine can be found here. The increased focus that the co-founder mentions is probably also talking about DMAE, which I happen to be familiar with.
It’s a decent nootropic, and at 100 mg seems to be a standard dose to improve your focus and attention span. The third ingredient here is caffeine, which we all know helps wake the mind and body and improve alertness and reaction timing .
I think in this area, calling KRE-EX the “best” would be an overstatement especially without the superstars in the nootropic world like Noopept or any of the Piracetams.
Glycolytic Catalyst Fusion
When I first noticed this particular “fusion” of ingredients, I saw that KRE-EX contained 3,725 mg of dextrose aka glucose. This is a simple sugar and is clearly responsible for the carbohydrate content.
It appears this small amount is meant to help keep the muscles full of glycogen and remain anabolic while training in the gym. It’s a monosaccharide which means no digestion is necessary and your muscles get fed. 
If I wanted to summarize the ingredients in KRE-EX, I would probably say it’s a mixture of creatine, BCAAs, and a fair amount of mild nootropics. I wouldn’t expect full on beast mode with a product like this, but you’ll definitely get a nice edge.
Side Effects of KRE-EX
Like any preworkout, KRE-EX has many of the same side effects of most common pre workouts.
Anyone sensitive to caffeine should watch their tolerance levels and start off slowly. It also helps to eat a small meal before drinking.
“Personally, I wouldn’t worry too much about feeling many side effects with KRE-EX. It’s a mild preworkout that isn’t too extreme for most people. KRE-EX still a stimulant, so keep that in mind, but you shouldn’t experience anything too extreme,” our lead reviewer points out.
DMAE has been known to cause headaches in uncommon cases, so if you notice this as a side effect, drinking more water seems to help.
And with any preworkout, just watch your tolerance to see how your body responds. Start small and work your way up.
KRE-EX User Reviews
The KRE-EX formula is literally so new, that hardly any feedback or user testimonials were out there for this at all.
We some some reviews for the OLD KRE-EX product, but more time is needed to really get a solid opinion on it.
One guy on facebook commented on the companys product video saying:
You guys should not have added more caffeine. If people don't have the focus and mental energy to destroy the gym they should take up a more relaxing hobby. The only thing inside a preworkout should be nutrients. Not stimulants. Very disappointed
But aside from that, we think complaining about a bit of caffeine is ridiculous. It’s just that right now, that’s all we have.
We can tell you our own review based on what we know about the formula, but as far as real world results only time will tell.
As of now, I wouldn’t call it the best pre workout of the year, and I think preworkouts like Megawatt HD are years ahead of it.
It’s not a BAD product. It’s just not EXCEPTIONAL.
Formula of the Year? More Like Runner Up!
The claims on KRE-EX are huge, but in the end turns out to be nothing but mostly hype. It’s mild, and a good option for light weights, but calling it formula of the year is just exaggerating it’s claims, like all companies.
KRE-EX is a low stim preworkout with ⅓ of the caffeine found in most other pre workouts. It’s perfect for those wanting a nice edge on their workouts, but nothing too extreme or intense.
If you want something a little more intense, you can really take your pre workouts to the next level with Megawatt HD V2 by 1st Phorm.
The focus and intensity you will feel is mindblowing, and the energy will literally have you shaking.
