 Controlled Labs' Green Magnitude

Description

Controlled Labs' Green Magnitude features an advanced creatine matrix combining Magnesium Creatine Chelate (a patented form of creatine) with Dicreatine Malate (creatine bound with Malic Acid). Magnesium creatine chelate is a potent form of creatine that maximizes creatine concentrations in muscles. This unique, high performance formula also includes Betaine Anhydrous, a vitamin derived from choline. Green Magnitude's synergistic combination of nutrients can improve strength, stamina and performance.

Independent studies suggest that Magnesium Creatine Chelate can increase strength and enhance athletic performance. One placebo-controlled study published in Metabolism found that magnesium creatine supplementation increased quadriceps torque (strength). "The peak torque changes were significant only in the Magnesium Creatine group, which had increases in ICW (intracellular water) that may infer more muscular creatine due to its osmotic effect, and with increased cellular hydration, perhaps increased protein synthesis," the study authors conclude.

Green Magnitude also includes Betaine Anhydrous, a versatile vitamin used in the body for essential body functions. Betaine has been shown to be lipotropic (fat loss causing) by promoting fat burning as fuel for energy. This potent nutrient also lowers homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is a metabolite that can damage blood vessels and is a cardiac risk marker.


Pros

Green Magnitude is one of the first creatine products on the market to combine magnesium creatine chelate with dicreatine malate. This creatine matrix delivers synergistic benefits - improving strength, stamina and performance. Additionally, when combined with Betaine Anhydrous, energy, performance and immunity are enhanced.

The nutrients in Green Magnitude have the following benefits:

  • An advanced synergistic creatine matrix
  • Improves muscle size and strength
  • Increases and sustains energy and stamina
  • Burns fat as energy
  • Enhances athletic performance

Cons

Creatine is generally considered safe. There are few side affects although stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea, bloating and muscle cramping have been reported.

Betaine anhydrous can cause diarrhea, stomach upset and nausea.

Pregnant or lactating women and people with kidney disease, high blood pressure or diabetes should not supplement with Green Magnitude.
