Muscletech is attempting to take recovery to the next level with Amino Build Next Gen. This product is a clinically dosed performance enhancing BCAA formula with betaine*
Betaine is naturally occurring in our bodies, and is most well known for its potential to reduce the risk of heart disease. Most recently it has been realized to have extensive benefits in boosting muscle strength, power, and mass. Studies have proven that subjects using betaine have shown larger increases in muscle, while also experiencing decreases in body fat. But how?
Betaine functions as a “methyl donor” in the body. When methyl is transferred to the amino acid homocysteine, methionine is produced - methionine plays an important role in protein synthesis. As a result, betaine promotes more muscle growth and more effective training.
Amino Build Next Gen also features the 2:1:1 BCAA matrix, including clinical doses of micronized L-Leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-Valine, all of which help to aid in the recovery process. The BCAA matrix, paired with a clinical dose of betaine and Muscletech’s electrolyte blend (80mg sodium chloride, 50mg coconut water, 50mg watermelon juice, and 40mg of dipotassium phosphate) have been tested in subjects of a six week time span and the results speak for themselves:
- More muscle built than regular BCAA formulas
- Boost in strength by 40%
- First does boost in endurance
- 3.75lbs of lean muscle growth (6 week time frame)
