New study at University of Tampa finds Phosphatidic Acid to increase muscle protein synthesis! [1,2]
Phospha Muscle by Muscletech is the leading product providing Phosphatidic Acid, a signaling lipid which increases naturally in the body during resistance training. This acid has been shown to bind to mTOR, increasing muscle protein synthesis. In a study conducted by at the University of Tampa, 28 male athletes consumed 750mg of Phosphatidic Acid (half the dose of Phospha Muscle) and participated in an 8 week resistance training program. The group taking Phosphtidic Acid realized superior results than the placebo controlled group.
Gained 5.3 lbs more lean body mass.
Increased leg press strength 114.4 lbs more than placebo.
The results of this study indicate that Phosphatidic Acid is highly anabolic and may help increase strength and lean body mass given proper diet and training habits.
