THE MOST EXCLUSIVE CREATINE IN THE WORLD
creatine has never been so strong, anabolic and healthy
The Problem: You know that creatine increases your strength, your muscle mass and has numerous pro-salubrious applications; however, you have never been fully satisfied with the forms of creatine used so far. Well - there has never been a product before that contains Creatine Magna Power, magnesium creatine chelate, PATENTED by Albion Laboratories and proven by scientific research.
The Answer: Choose CREATINE MAGNA POWER, the product from the only Polish partner of Albion Laboratories: OLIMP Laboratories!
Here you will learn why Creatine Magna Power performs better than any other creatine compound you have ever used!
Creatine Magna Power is the most advanced creatine ever created in science labs. Creatine, as well as arginine, is the most effective of all the legalized anabolic agents. This fact has been confirmed by numerous scientific studies and long-standing use in sport. However, the full potential of creatine as a supplement stimulating strength and muscle mass is limited by the lactamation reaction, which transforms a major part of the creatine consumed into inert creatinine. This reaction binds the amino group of creatine with its acid group. This locks up the creatine molecule, turning it into creatinine (see Fig. 1) and makes it anabolically inert. The reaction is accelerated by the high acidity of ready-to-consume creatine solutions, as well as the acidity of the upper gastrointestinal tract.

Research labs have tried to eliminate this disadvantage by either securing the reactive chemical groups with alcohol or acid molecules, which can result in creatine malate or creatine ethyl ester, or by mixing creatine with alkali metal compounds.
This is where magnesium creatine chelate comes in: Creatine Magna Power, which combines both creatine protection methods:

Long term scientific research proves that magnesium and creatine have beneficial effect on various aspects of physiological activity. The roles of both substances are closely correlated and alternate together in many specific reactions. This fact led Albion Advanced Nutrition researchers to consider the combination of magnesium and creatine in one compound, an idea that is both logical and innovative. Creating magnesium creatine chelate (see Fig. 2) with a patented technology protects the creatine molecule from transcending into inert creatinine, thus increasing the amount of the physiologically active creatine which is truly available for muscle cell metabolism – resulting in much higher muscle energy. Magnesium has strong alkali properties, decreasing the environment acidity of creatine and maintaining it as fully active in both ready-to-use solutions and the digestive tract.
Nevertheless, protecting creatine from losing its activity is just half of the way to complete success. The other half is to maximally utilise its anabolic potential…
Creatine enhances muscle strength and mass by the mediation of the true anabolic compound called ATP – adenosintriphosphate. Creatine supplementation leads to increase of ATP levels in the muscle cells. The complete energy required for muscle contraction and force stimuli generation is created by ATP hydrolysis
. ATP also stimulates anabolic enzymes, known as kinases, which stimulate our genes to produce muscle proteins. ATP also takes part in every stage of protein molecule synthesis.
Magnesium is crucial for ATP synthesis and hydrolysis.
ATP is synthesised when the phosphate radical (P) is carried from active creatine to adenosinediphosphate (ADP). But in order to transfer this radical from creatine to ADP to create ATP, it is essential that one magnesium atom participates in the process (see Fig. 3).
As we can see, ATP synthesis requires both creatine molecules and magnesium atoms. Magnesium availability in the process regulates the ratio of synthesising ATP from creatine. That is why, when we use a creatine supplement and muscle cells lack magnesium, the anabolic activity of creatine is not utilised well.
This problem is solved with Creatine Magna Power, the magnesium creatine chelate, which provides both creatine and magnesium for ATP synthesis:
Magnesium creatine chelate increases the ability of our body to synthesise and regenerate the ATP required for supplying the energy needed for muscle effort.

We can see that magnesium creatine chelate supplies the required magnesium atoms directly to the reaction environment (see Fig. 4), which allows creatine to maintain a high ATP ratio and output level, maximising the anabolic activity at the same time. Supplementing with Magna Power increases the speed of muscle mass growth as well as strength, since larger amounts of ATP make muscle fibre contraction more effective and generate their force stimuli.
You could, of course, compensate for magnesium deficiency with an additional supplement, yet you cannot guarantee that the right amount of atoms will permeate into the muscle cells and intracellular compartments where all anabolic processes occur. Controlled clinical research compared the effect of administering magnesium creatine chelate with administering creatine and magnesium from separate sources from unlimited magnesium oxide and amino acid chelate.
It attempted to measure endurance during physical effort by measuring time from the beginning of the effort to physical exhaustion, with a 30 minute break between two effort periods after supplementing with various sources of creatine and magnesium. The research indicates that the performance gained with magnesium creatine chelate was significantly better than those gained from creatine / magnesium oxide mixture and the placebo [see Chart 1 and Fig. 5].

Magna Power Magnesium Creatine Chelate is an effective source of bioavailable magnesium, which – apart from its widely-known properties – assists creatine closely in the energy transformation of working muscles, increasing their ability to generate and utilize ATP energy.
Why does Creatine Magna Power™ perform better than simple combination of creatine and magnesium?
The magnesium creatine chelate produced protects the creatine molecule from cyclization and transformation into inert creatinine in the acid pH of the stomach.
EFFECT » more creatine available
The chelate supplies the cardiovascular system with more active creatine, which is then transported directly to the muscle cells.
EFFECT » more active creatine
Chelated creatine contains a magnesium atom which contributes to its energetic and anabolic activity.
EFFECT » creatine always works
A charging phase is unnecessary: a small dose is enough since the chelate is resistant to acid cyclization and transformation into inert creatinine. The recommended chelate dose is 5 times less than that of creatine monohydrate.
EFFECT » no more large and uneconomical doses
No sugar carriers are necessary for high assimilability of the creatine chelates, since insulin does not carry it into the muscle cells.
EFFECT » highly usable with low-carb diets
Lipogenesis (fat production) does not occur since insulin levels do not rise. The fat tissue is controlled more by glucagons and noradrenalin. The fat is then released more easily to serve as an energy source for working body.
EFFECT » more fat-free muscle mass
Creatine chelate does not accumulate water as its monohydrate does.
EFFECT » no hypodermic hydration
Only Creatine Magna Power can provide 100% satisfaction from creatine-supported muscle strength and mass!
