High-Strength Anabolic Complex
Muscle Mass addresses multiple body systems to achieve successful workouts
and long-term muscle development. Muscle Mass supports muscle development, energy
generation, adrenal function, lipid metabolism, and hormone regulation.
Athletes and bodybuilders are often tempted by fads and quick fixes. In reality,
it is necessary to address multiple, interrelated body systems to achieve successful
workouts and long-term muscle development. Muscle Mass supports:
- Hormone Regulation
Growth hormone, produced by the pituitary gland, stimulates the production
of protein in muscle cells and the release of energy from the breakdown of
fats. The amino acid combination of L-lysine and L-arginine pyroglutamate
was used in a landmark study to promote the release of human growth hormone
(HGH). Certain nutrients and herbs have traditionally been used by body builders.
- Lipid Metabolism
Certain nutrients assist in the body's utilization of lipids (fats) for energy.
Choline and inositol metabolize and remove fats from the liver. Also, the
amino acid L-carnitine assists in the transport of fats into the mitochondria
(the energy factories) of muscle cells for fuel during activity.
- Adrenal Support
A strenuous aerobic or anaerobic workout puts great demands on the body. To
respond to this stress, the adrenal glands produce hormones such as cortisol.
Nourishing the adrenals is an important factor in exercise recovery.
- Muscle Development
Exercise and nutrition are critical for muscle development. The branched chain
amino acids, L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine, are important components
of muscle tissue and are taken into muscle cells preferentially. These aminos
help muscle growth and protein synthesis by enhancing the uptake of other
amino acids into muscle cells. The body also uses the branchchain aminos as
alternate fuel sources, sparing muscle breakdown.
- Energy Generation
Skeletal muscles must have energy reserves to cope with bursts of activity.
Fatty acids are the main energy source in skeletal muscle of "endurance"
athletes, such as long distance runners. During short-term "sprint"
or "power" exercises, muscles rapidly metabolize ATP, phosphocreatine
and glucose from glycogen stores. To support immediate and sustained energy,
branched chain amino acids may be utilized as an energy source for the muscles.
