The findings of the studies by Dr. Brilla, et al, have shown the benefits of creatine supplementation , and has further pointed out that Albion’s Creatine MagnaPower® (magnesium creatine chelate) has some important effects on the body that are beyond that of other creatine forms, as stated in Dr. Brilla’s conclusions. The advantages of the Creatine MagnaPower® have held true over the course of three different clinical studies by Dr. Brilla and company.
Published reports from the studies are listed below. There are no publications yet from the 2009 study. However, manuscripts will be prepared, with the first paper in progress reporting the DOMS results.
