The supplement improves the capacity of the body during workout, thanks to which it can withstand harder and longer trainings. It promotes muscle growth, allows to reduce breaks between sets, and guarantees a higher-quality pump during strength workout. Moreover, it exhibits numerous health-improving properties within the digestive, nervous and cardiovascular systems, as well as supports the course of metabolic transformations in the muscles.
Creatine is a tripeptide with a simple structure produced in the liver. It consists of two exogenous amino acids: arginine and methionine, and one endogenous amino acid: glycine. It is a protein found in many common food products but in negligible amounts. In order to benefit from high creatine levels in the body, it would be necessary to take at least 5 g of the substance daily. Because food contains only its very little amounts, even the best diet is not capable of satisfying the needs of a physically active body. The only reasonable method seems to be supplementation with preparations containing the substance.
Along with a phosphoric acid rest, creatine is essential to the formation of phosphocreatine. The compound is an energy substrate that allows the transformation of adenosine-5’-monophosphate (AMP) and adenosine-5’-diphosphate (ADP) with fewer high-energy bonds to the form with three bonds, that is adenosine-5’-triphosphate (ATP).
Why is it so relevant? ATP is an energy carrier in the human body. Every anabolic reaction requires energy, which is mostly delivered by none other but ATP. During heavy workout, ATP molecules are broken down to ADP and then AMP. The breakdown process releases energy from high-energy phosphates. In order to prevent a disastrous sudden drop in the level of available ATP, the body constantly replenishes its reserves by transforming ADP and AMP, provided it has enough phosphocreatine.
Muscle mass and strength growth
Many scientific studies have proven the effect of creatine on the growth of muscle mass and strength as well as overall body mass. Creatine supplementation results in a higher ability of the body to keep working under maximum strain, which improves workout quality. Thanks to that, the musculoskeletal system is stimulated even more, which generates greater muscle mass growth. Damaged tissues are topped by new ones, which leads to muscle hypertrophy.
In many studies, creatine has shown its surprising health-promoting properties and beneficial effects in the therapy of a number of ailments. The substance has a proven ability to slow down the process of neurodegeneration. Research also shows that creatine minimises the difficulty to focus caused by a lack of sleep. The substance has also been shown to combat depression by optimising energy management and improving motivation.
What is more, creatine has proven useful in alleviating the symptoms of some digestive diseases, such as Crohn’s disease.
Magnesium is a chemical element with a crucial role in the body. It is an activator of numerous catalytic enzymes connected with nutrient metabolism and more. It is an essential component of bones, cell membranes, and ribosomes.
Magnesium helps to maintain proper electrolyte balance in the organism, that way contributing to proper nerve impulse transmission, and reduces the risk of swelling. It is also a crucial factor in the process of secretion and release of such hormones as insulin or catecholamines. Additionally, it displays cardioprotective properties and promotes haematopoietic processes. It is also a structural element of proteins participating in the process of energy transmission during the electron transport chain, contributing to the production of energy.
The combination of creatine and magnesium in the form of magnesium creatine chelate Magna Power® is justified by the synergy of both substances. Magnesium is nearly as important in the reaction of ATP phosphorylation as creatine, as it activates catalytic enzymes that take part in the process. Delivered in the form of creatine chelate, it reaches muscle cells, where the processes of ATP breakdown and regeneration occur during physical activity.
What is more, creatine in that form keeps its extraordinary stability and bioavailability. Thanks to magnesium, which has a basic pH, the breakdown of creatine to its inactive form, creatinine, is minimised, as the process takes place in an acidic environment.
In summary, Olimp Creatine Magna Power® is a dietary supplement of supreme quality intended for athletes who want to take their training to a new level and enable their muscles to work even more efficiently, at the same time supporting many aspects of their health.
When using the supplement, make sure you drink a lot of water, that is about 3 litres daily. Otherwise, you might experience symptoms of migraine, especially during highly intensive workout.
In order to amplify the benefits of supplementing creatine, try combining it with preparations containing L-citrulline or L-arginine, which further improve blood flow in muscles, or beta-alanine and caffeine, which increase endurance during workout.

The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents energy., determining the value of metabolic energy contained in 1 g of the component. Most commonly used is the equivalent of Atwater: protein 4 kcal/g for carbohydrates 4kcal/g, and for fat 9kcal/g.
Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.
Saturated fatty acids are a group of fatty acid having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is linked by a single bond. Saturated fatty acids are commonly known as bad fat, which might adversely affect the cholesterol level, in particular by the action of acids: lauric, myristic, palmitic, and therefore their consumption should be reduced. Research carried out in this matter do not confirm entirely the prevailing beliefs.
Carbohydrates are an essential nutrient. They are divided into: simple sugars (monosaccharides), disaccharides and polysaccharides. In terms of the human bioavailability of carbohydrates is divided into: digestabe, those which are digested in the gastrointestinal tract by transferring energy to the tissues or cells (such as starch, fructose) and indigestable, resistant to digestive enzymes (e.g. cellulose) . Affects blood glucose levels (glycemic index) and the metabolism of insulin (insulin index). The greatest demand for carbohydrates occurs before physical activity or in the middle of it, because they increase the exercise capacity, consumed after exercise provide regeneration. In the sports diet the absorption rate it is important of carbohydrates and reactions of the organism. Available in mono-preparation supplements and part of the energetic supplements, creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: according to the statistics of the Institute of Food and Nutrition, carbohydrates should comprise about 50% of daily energy intake. In some diets, used residual carbohydrate consumption, not exceeding 30g / 24h.
Sugars - is the term used to refer to the crystal structure of the carbohydrate (sugar), characterized by a sweet taste. This group includes: sucrose (obtained from sugar cane and sugar beets and natural foods), fruit sugars (fructose) and glucose. Carbohydrate intake should not exceed 10% of the energy consumed during the day meals. Excess intake of sugars leading to diseases, including diabetes, atherosclerosis and obesity. Particular caution should be performed carbohydrate intake by athletes of sculpting disciplines and people on a diet. A greater need for carbohydrates, due being easily accessible sources of energy, may be in the periods before and after workouts and before and after the fight.

Proteins (proteins, polypeptides) is a polymer, of which the basic units (monomers) are amino acids. Protein is composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and sulfur, and is an elementary nutrient necessary for the proper functioning of the body, an ingredient and a component of tissues, part of the hormones and enzymes and other bioactive substances. Protein determines the proper metabolism and energy processes, as well as all other life processes. The sources of natural proteins are foods of animal origin (including meat, fish, eggs, dairy products) and plant origin (legumes, soy). Deficiency of protein leads to protein malnutrition and a significant weakening of the body. It can lead to anaemia, reduced immunity, muscle relaxation, disorders of the digestive system. Also, overdose protein is undesirable because it can lead to acidification of the body, and interfere with the digestive system and an increase in the concentration of homocysteine in the blood. It is a component of many supplements and nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body, both showing a low physical activity, or training the strength and endurance competitions.
Dosage: strength athletes: approx. 1.7 - 2.5 g / 1 kg of body weight; endurance athletes and strength -endurance athletes approx. 1.3 - 2 g / 1 kg of body weight, people with low activity approx. 0.8 - 1.1 g / 1 kg of body weight / 24h. In estimating the amount of protein, you should take into account the intake of other nutrients (carbohydrates and fats)
Salt (sodium chloride, or table salt), natural source of electrolytes (chlorine and potassium), regulating water and electrolyte and acid-base balance of the body, affecting the nervous system and blood pressure. Sodium is an essential element for the proper growth. The proper dose of salt prevents overheating of the body and solar stroke. It provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves the body. Chlorine in combination with sodium, is involved in the digestive process and maintains acid-base balance in the body, as antitoxin removes toxic products of metabolism in the liver. Salt is a flavour component and preservative of many foods, nutritional supplements and mixtures of electrolytes, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: no specific standards of consumption, used so as to provide sufficient amount of electrolytes to the body (sodium and chloride).
Creatine (β-methylguanidoacetic acid) is an endogenous substance, synthesized from the acids present in liver and kidney (L-arginine, L-glycine and L-methionine) and consumption of meat. Its action ensures an adenosine triphosphate (ATP) level, which is an energy carrier, increases the hydration of cells and muscle glycogen stores. In the sports supplementation creatine is stored in the muscles, which improves energy management, exercise capacity and quick recovery and muscle growth. It has the ergogenic, anabolic and anti-catabolic potential.
Creatine is one of the high-performance substances used in competitive sports, with a reputation confirmed by scientific research. In the form of mono-preparation supplements such as creatine ester, creatine malate, creatine monohydrate, and the multi-component supplements (both various forms of creatine, as well as other substances, precursors of nitric oxide, the BCAA type amino acids). Supplements containing creatine available for purchase at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: depending on the form of preparation, the type of exercise and weight, normally one of the following models of creatine dosage is used:
- cyclic supplementation: 5 - 10g per day in 1 - 3 portions a day, 2 - 5 g per dose. Cycle time approx. 4 - 12 weeks
- cyclic supplementation with saturated phase: first 5 - 7 days 20 - 30g per day on Day 4 - 6 doses 4 - 6g per serving, then the maintenance phase 2 - 10g per day in divided doses. Cycle time approx. 4 - 8 weeks
- constant supplementation: 0.03 - 0.05 g per kg body weight for an extended period of time.
