Magnesium-Creatine Chelate Impacts PerformanceNutrition

BELLINGHAM, Wash.--L.R. Brilla, Ph.D., FACSM, FACN,and K.M. Knutzen, Ph.D., FACSM, of Western Washington University, have presentedseveral findings from their study of magnesium-creatine chelate (as CreatineMagnaPower, manufactured by Albion Advanced Nutrition, www.albion-an.com,Clearfield, Utah) in regard to performance nutrition. Brilla and Knutzenpresented various aspects of their research at Experimental Biology 2002 and ameeting of the American Physiological Society April 20 to 24. Currently, paperson this research are under consideration with several peer-reviewed journals.

Brilla and Knutzen compared the anaerobic effects of magnesium-creatinechelate, creatine monohydrate plus magnesium oxide, and placebo in 35 activesubjects. According to the researchers, magnesium-creatine chelatesupplementation had the greatest impact on early sets of maximal effortisokinetic knee extensions, and it may ameliorate negative changes in power infive consecutive sets of 30 repetitions. The subjects taking the chelate alsodemonstrated an increase in peak power and a prolonged anaerobic threshold inexercise. Brilla and Knutzen noted that magnesium-creatine chelate is morebioavailable than creatine monohydrate plus magnesium oxide.
