1. What Is It?
Creatine MagnaPower® is nothing more than pure Creatine bonded to pure Magnesium. But there is a lot more to Creatine MagnaPower® than just Creatine and Magnesium. Creatine is a compound that is naturally found in the body, if fact, the body can create Creatine out of the aminos Glycine and Arginine. Creatine is used as a fuel source for our explosive & short duration movements. Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. It is utilised and essential for a huge variety of body processes and supporting general health.
2. What Does It Do?
What Does Creatine Do?
Creatine has been shown to increase the amount of creatine and creatine phosphate in the body. The more creatine we have within the body, the more we have to utilise for energy. Creatine is used in our ‘explosive’ energy system, typically used when performing short duration, high-intensity movements such as weight lifting and sprinting. Creatine is one of the most well-known sports supplements for improving physical performance.
What Does Magnesium Do?
Magnesium is critical to over 300 processes in the human body ranging from supporting nerve and muscular function, regulating blood glucose levels and it is even involved in the creation of proteins, bone and DNA in the body. Magnesium aids the bodies absorption of other vital minerals and compounds which can help improve muscle recovery as well as performance. It is used in so many bodily functions there are too many to be able to list them all, because of this, supplementation with Magnesium is often considered essential for those who train and want to improve recovery and performance.
Creatine MagnaPower® Difference:
One of Creatine MagnaPower’s main benefits is its enhanced bioavailability of both Magnesium and Creatine. This results in a higher level of absorption and utilization of Creatine far superior to that of Creatine Monohydrate. Being able to utilize an ingredient more effectively is a huge benefit as it not only requires a smaller serving size compared to less bioavailable forms but it puts less stress on the body to process and utilize the ingredient when consumed.
Increased intracellular hydration is another key benefit of Creatine MagnaPower®. Enhanced intracellular hydration alone provides a wide variety of performance-enhancing benefits. When we refer to intracellular, we are talking about the hydration of our cells, the fluids we hold inside our cells in the body. This is also the fluid we lose through exercise, sweating and also through urine. Being able to maintain a higher level of intracellular hydration not only supports our physical performance but also has been shown to help represent a higher level of protein synthesis occurring in the body which is vital for proper recovery.
When we are talking about Creatine supplementation, we generally talk about improved explosive performance. And this is correct, Creatine forms the fuel we use for most anaerobic physical activities. Anaerobic meaning exercises performed without oxygen such as sprinting, weight lifting and anything explosive in nature and performed with a very short duration. Supplementation with Creatine MagnaPower® has been shown to have a performance-enhancing effect on anaerobic performance.
The unique combination of Magnesium and Creatine makes Creatine MagnaPower® a 1-2 double action ingredient that not only provides two separate ingredients together. But their combination enhances the performance-enhancing effects the ingredients have individually to make them more effective than being used separately.
3. How Much Do I Need To Take?
The benefit of Creatine MagnaPower® being a registered product, other than the assured quality of the ingredient itself, is the industry backing behind the ingredients use, benefit and also dosing.
1,500 mg of Creatine MagnaPower® seems to be the magic serving you want to include in your daily supplement routine. While you can certainly argue smaller people might ‘need’ less and larger people might ‘need’ more. There are no adverse effects to having ‘more’ than is needed of Creatine MagnaPower® and the 1,500 mg serving has been shown to have impressive performance-enhancing benefits regardless of weight and size.
4. When Do I Take It?
As with all Creatine products, we suggest that consistent supplementation daily will always yield the best results. Creatine MagnaPower® does NOT need to be loaded like other forms of Creatine might suggest implementing. Consistent daily consumption of Creatine MagnaPower® will be the best for short and long term benefits.
The benefit of Creatine MagnaPower® being a combination of Creatine and Magnesium does mean as a stand-alone ingredient it does have superior bioavailability meaning you don’t have to time the consumption of it like you would for other Creatine forms.
Pre-workout, Post-workout, morning or night; you can’t go wrong with the timing on consuming Creatine MagnaPower®.
5. How Long Does It Take To Work?
You will notice the effects of Creatine MagnaPower® after your first serving. Studies have shown even after a single serving of Creatine MagnaPower® either pre-workout or post-workout showed a significant decrease in perceived DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) within 24 hours after intense training.
Long term consumption will always yield the best results with Creatine MagnaPower®. With increases in muscular power and strength showed after 2 – 4 weeks of consistent supplementation. These results showed a significant increase in those measures over-supplementation with another form of creatine and against a placebo group as well.
