Saw this in Runners World. I assume the name is supposed to inspire
thoughts of the results given by EPO. The study is **** since it's
significant of magnesium and not this stuff. Claimed bumps in VO2 were
significant. Dr's - your thoughts?

**A study was conducted using 23 competitive tri-athletes; all subject
to 4 weeks of supplementation with 17mmol/d (4.5 Grams) Magnesium
Orotate or a placebo during a double blind randomized controlled study.
They then each competed in an event including a 500-meter swim a 5-km
run and a 20-km bicycle race after supplementation. Blood was collected
before, between and after the events for assaying energy stress and
membrane metabolism. Compared with the controls, running, swimming and
cycling time decreased in the Magnesium Orotate group. Serum insulin
decreased 65% in the MO group and increased 39% in the controls
(significant). Serum glucose concentrations increased 118% in the MO
group and 87% in the control group (significant). Venous O2 partial
pressure increased 208% in the MO group as opposed to 126% in the
controls (significant). Venous CO2 partial pressure after the bicycle
race decreased 74% in controls as compared to 66% in the MO group
(significant). Blood leukocyte count increased from 5.81/nL to 9.10/nL
in the MO group as opposed to 5.92/nL to 11.0/nl in the controls
(significant). Blood proton concentration decreased 98% in controls
compared to 90% in the MO group (significant). Serum cortisol was
reduced in the MO group before between and after the event when
compared with the controls. CK catalytic concentration after the test
was elevated 122% in the MO group compared to 140% in the controls.
This study points to a substantially reduced stress response to
training, altered glucose utilization and positive stress-induced
modifications of energy and hormone metabolism, which did not affect
competitive potential.
