Utah-based Albion Human Nutrition has received GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status for its Creatine MagnaPower product, following a review by a third‐party expert panel.
The proprietary product contains creatine chelated with magnesium, both well-known muscle nutrients.
The successful acquisition of a CAS number for this product and others manufactured by Albion can aid in further registration in individual counties, thus supporting an expanding sales effort and world‐wide demand of their products.
Creatine is one of, if not the most popular sports supplements in the world. Over 40% of athletes in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) are reported to use creatine, according to survey data.
In addition, regular creatine supplements use in aging adults can greatly reduce muscle loss due to sarcopenia.
