Strength training promotes muscle growth and strength,
but not without first driving the body into a catabolic
state that breaks down specific muscle tissue
components, such as glycogen and protein, to
supply the energy required for muscular function
during exercise. Naturally, the diminished protein
replenished to prevent the potential loss of lean
body mass and diminished exercise performance.
The post-workout consumption of lean protein
and complex carbohydrates is an important part
of the replenishing process augmenting muscle
growth and performance. In addition, post-
workout consumption of leucine, creatine and
betaine have also been shown to potently
replenish the muscle cell, enhancing muscle
growth and function.
This is why leucine, creatine and BetaPower™
Betaine are found in Advanced Molecular Labs’
(AML) Postworkout. The essential replenishment
of muscle protein and glycogen levels from the
post-workout consumption of leucine, combined
with the synergistic muscle-building compounds
creatine and betaine, will provide a robust
biochemical milieu within the muscle cell-
driving exceptional growth and strength.
Here's How it works
LEUCINE STIMULATES POST-
The consumption of leucine is one of the more effective ways
to reverse exercise-induced protein degradation in muscle.
Leucine intake has been shown to directly stimulate muscle
protein synthesis and inhibit muscle protein breakdown,
ultimately promoting muscle growth by activating the
nutrient-sensing molecule mTOR. In fact, the muscle-building
effect of leucine consumption has been shown in several
studies to be most potent after resistance training.*
Creatine Monohydrate Boosts Muscle Energy, Size and Strength.
Creatine monohydrate is one of the most well characterized muscle-building supplements on the market. Numerous studies over the years have shown the positive influence of creatine monohydrate supplementation on high-intensity exercise performance. This body of evidence indicates that creatine supplementation may increase power output during intense exercise, while also stimulating muscle hypertrophy. Creatine also drives muscle growth by triggering many different cellular mechanisms, including the stimulation of muscle cell formation and increased muscle protein synthesis.*
Combining Leucine With Creatine Monohydrate
Limits Myostatin Function.
The muscle-depleting molecule myostatin vigorously thwarts muscle growth by blocking several key
anabolic processes, resulting in notable gains in muscle growth.*
Pump Up With Betaine.
Betaine, also known as trimethylglycine, is a natural osmolyte found in the cell that protects the cell against dehydration by increasing cellular water retention through osmosis. The ability of betaine to maintain hydration reduces the negative impact that dehydration can have on exercise performance, such as increased heart rate, increased rate of glycogen degradation and increased lactate levels. Betaine also enhances muscle hypertrophy by causing the muscle fiber to swell. In fact, research has shown that muscle cell swelling stimulates protein synthesis and decreases protein breakdown, resulting in muscle growth.*
Betaine Synergistically Enhances
Creatine Function for Greater Strength.
The ability of betaine to increase creatine production and muscle cell uptake is likely the primary reason why betaine has been shown to significantly increase anaerobic power in key lifts like the bench press and squat.*
Potassium Citrate for Buffering
Lactic Acid and Electrolyte Replacement.
Numerous studies have shown higher potassium citrate intake reduces the risk of stroke and many other cardiovascular diseases, likely due to their capacity to increase vasodilation, which reduces blood pressure. Potassium citrate has also been shown to improve exercise performance by buffering lactic acid buildup in the muscle, further upgrading performance.*
