How does it work?
The mineral magnesium is important for every organ in the body, particularly the heart, muscles, and kidneys. It also contributes to the composition of teeth and bones. Most importantly, it activates enzymes, contributes to energy production, and helps regulate calcium levels.

Who is it used for?
A creatine-magnesium chelate helps to enhance absorption of creatine and decrease stomach discomfort. Some initial research shows it is better absorbed and tolerated than traditional creatine monohydrate. It also mixes well in water.

How does it work?
Magnesium is found in whole unprocessed foods in the diet. However, too much coffee, soda, salt, or alcohol intake as well as heavy menstrual periods, excessive sweating, and prolonged stress can also lower magnesium levels. Fatigue, muscle weakness and cramps, depression, loss of appetite, listlessness, and potassium depletion can all result from a magnesium deficiency.

Some experts believe that creatine combined with magnesium is a highly effective way to enhance and extend the effects of creatine on muscle size and strength. Magnesium has been shown to enhance strength and energy levels taken on its own. Creatine monohydrate has also been shown to be very effective. However some users experience stomach discomfort when they use creatine on its own.

By creating a creatine-magnesium chelate, creatine can be protected from the harsh environment of the stomach acid. When minerals such as magnesium become surrounded by and bonded to amino acids, in a stable form, this is referred to as chelation. Chelation is a natural means for the body to transport minerals across the intestinal wall as part of digestion.

How do I use it?
The chelated magnesium should be taken at the same time as creatine.
What results can I expect?
If someone is deficient in magnesium, supplemental magnesium will help to eliminate symptoms of the deficiency, such as muscle weakness and cramps, depression, loss of appetite, and listlessness. A creatine-magnesium chelate can also enhance the absorption of creatine and decrease stomach discomfort.

What can it be combined with?
Look for products containing a creatine-magnesium chelate. You will see both 'Creatine' and 'Albion Chelated Magnesium' on the product label. Taking a magnesium supplement with creatine monohydrate is not the same as using a creatine-magnesium chelate, and will not provide the same benefits as the chelated compound.
