Glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the human body and plays an important role in many biological functions. During exercise, especially intense exercise, the body’s glutamine stores are depleted which can negatively impact performance and also suppress immune function. This makes glutamine supplementation a priority for athletes.
- GLUTAMINE PROMOTES OPTIMAL RECOVERY FROM INTENSE WORKOUTS*
- GLUTAMINE HELPS SUPPORT OPTIMAL IMMUNE FUNCTION*
- GLUTAMINE PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN KEY BIOLOGICAL FUNCTIONS*
Beta-Alanine is a naturally occuring amino acid that limits the amount of carnosine stored in muscle tissue. As Beta-Alanine levels rise, carnosine levels also rise, leading to numerous performance benefits. Research indicates that carnosine increases strengh and power, enhances endurance levels, improves recovery, and even stimulates fat loss and muscle growth.*
- Increases Strength & Power*
- Enhances Endurance Levels*
- Improves Recovery*
- Stimulates Fat Loss & Muscle Growth*
POWERBUILD contains a full effective dosage of 2 grams of Beta-Alanine (Stack with ALTIUS for 5.2g total daily intake). Beta-Alanine may cause a temporary itching or tingling of the skin, but this is extremely common and completely harmless.
One study on Boxers using Beta-Alanine suggested that four weeks of supplementation increased their average punching power in the last 10 seconds of a round by 2000% more compared to the placebo group. In the gym this translates to more power towards the end of your workout, being able to lift heavier for longer, and getting in more heavy reps.*
Creatine is a proven effective ingredient with hundreds of studies to back it up. Creatine supplementation supports significant gains in muscle strength, power, as well as muscle growth.
The Benefits of Creatine are Substantial:
- Up to 15% Increased Maximum Power & Endurance*
- Up to 20% Increased Power During Interval Training*
- Up to 30% Gain in Power and Energy Release in Short-Sprint Range*
- Up to 15% Gain in Power for sprint repetitions*
Betaine is a key powerhouse ingredient with the clinical studies to back it up: Increases in lean mass, strength, power, endurance, protein synthesis, and more*
The Performance-Enhancing Benefits of Betaine are Substantial:
Increases in lean muscle mass: One study resulted in a 4lb lean muscle gain, 7lb fat loss, and a 10% increase in arm size in just 6 weeks. The dose used was 2.5 grams daily, the same dose found in ALTIUS & POWERBUILD*
Increases in Power and Muscle Force: A daily 2.5 gram dose of Betaine has been shown in clinical studies to increase bench press power by 20% and muscle force on the bench press by 25%.*
Increases in Growth Hormone (+10%), IGF-1 (+10%), and Decreases in Cortisol (-15%)*
The amazing benefits of Betaine have been shown in real human clinical studies, and we have dosed this ingredient to match these studies at 2.5 grams per serving so you can reap the rewards of Betaine.
Leucine is a key ingredient in POWERBUILD because it stimulates muscle protein synthesis post-workout by activating mTOR. By stimulating protein synthesis immediately following your workout it jump starts muscle growth!
Research suggests that L-Carnitine L-Tartrate has significant recovery benefits.
HELPS ENHANCE RECOVERY AFTER WORKOUTS. IT HELPS REDUCE MUSCLE DAMAGE AND SORENESS FOLLOWING EXERCISE.*
INCREASES BLOOD FLOW TO RECOVERING MUSCLES BY BOOSTING NITRIC OXIDE PRODUCTION.*
INCREASES ANDROGEN RECEPTORS FOUND IN MUSCLE CELLS. TESTOSTERONE BINDS TO ANDROGEN RECEPTORS INSIDE OF THE MUSCLE FIBER WHICH HELPS STIMULATE MUSCLE GROWTH. HAVING A HIGHER ANDROGEN RECEPTOR CONCENTRATION POST-WORKOUT WILL HELP ENSURE THAT MORE TESTOSTERONE IS BEING PUT TO USE TO BUILD MUSCLE.
HELPS IMPROVE INSULIN SENSITIVITY
BioPerine® was added to the formula to help ramp-up absorption. What’s the point of amazing ingredients if they don’t absorb fully?
BioPerine® is a patented black pepper extract. It contains standardized amounts of the active ingredient piperine. Clinical studies suggest that a 5mg dose of BioPerine® taken with other supplements increases the absorption of the other supplements by 30 to 2000 percent.
POWERBUILD contains 5mg of BioPerine.
