NO CODE FORMULA BREAKDOWN
Leucine is considered the anabolic amino acid, and thus why for a truly advanced amino acid formula you need a leucine-enhanced, clinically-substantiated blend of all nine essential amino acids, providing you the right ratios for increased MPS, enhanced recovery and growth.
Taking things up a notch, NO CODE contains added leucine, bringing the content up to a beyond clinical dosage over 5.3g. Leucine is the branched chain amino acid that occupies a position of prominence, in that it alone can act as a stimulatory signal for muscle protein synthesis by actively switching on anabolic processes in the muscle cells via mTOR signalling.
Also known as Leucic acid, HICA is a leucine metabolite that is an anti-catabolic and anabolic agent similar to HMB. In a 4 week study on football athletes, those that supplemented with HICA found a 0.4kg increase in muscle mass in the legs, whereas the placebo group experienced a decrease. HICA also helps with endurance by absorbing some of the acid your muscles build up during exercise, allowing for longer periods of high-intensity activity before muscle fatigue.
Phosphatidic Acid (PA) is a phospholipid present in muscle cells that plays a vital role in mTOR signalling, which in turn increases Muscle Protein Synthesis. During muscular contractions it gets released and stimulates the mTOR pathway, leading to increased protein synthesis, strength and hypertrophy. Phosphatidic Acid has clinically shown to significantly increase lean body mass and decrease fat mass. Phosphatidic Acid has also shown to increase 1RM strength.
Magnesium is a vital mineral necessary for the functioning of over 300 enzymes in the human. If the body does not obtain enough magnesium, your muscles may contract too much leading to cramps or spasms.
AstraGin® is a proprietary gut health promoting ingredient that has shown in over a dozen in-vitro studies to improve the absorption of amino acids, peptides, folate, glucosamine and other nutrients in Caco-2 cell, the gold standard used by pharmaceutical companies to study the absorption of new drugs.
