Bio-Hormone Release THE WHOLE STORY The muscle cell is broken down and is tired. It needs glucose and amino acids to recover and build. Insulin is the main muscle building hormone in the body. It opens the ”cells door” to let in all of the nutrients the cell needs Every door needs a door knob (insulin receptor). The knob is chromium. There Are Three Phases Once the door is opened, a quality mix of to Building Muscle glucose, branched chain amino acids, and the rest of the essential amino acids must be available for maximum muscle building, bulk, and recovery. Catabolic: Muscle tissue is broken down every day Recovery: Glucose and amino acids The clinical research now proves pump into the muscle. chromium nicotinate combined Anabolic: Using glucose and amino with a long chain branched acids, the muscle rebuild stronger and larger delivery system, rebuilds muscle tissue faster and better andThis product is 45% of the converts body fat back to muscle 3 muscle building power tone. of WHY LET MUSCLE Valine – Leucine - ACHES SIDELINE YOU?
