The Trigger For Optimum Muscle Growth – mTORC

The Trigger For Optimum Muscle Growth – mTORC

Leucine is key in your supplement stack

From a basic fundamental standpoint, when you force a muscle to contract against a heavy load, the fibers that make up the skeletal muscle undergo stress and tear— and the primary response is to, in turn, signal protein synthesis. On a slightly deeper level, this activation is controlled by a series of phosphorylation (turning on) of a protein called mechanistic target of rapamycin complex … better known as mTORC.

How Much Protein To Build Maximum Muscle?

How Much Protein To Build Maximum Muscle?

More isn’t always better. Take protein shakes, for example. Research has show that maximal muscle protein synthesis occurs after consuming 20 to 30 grams of a protein supplement. Higher intakes do not have additional anabolic effects. Consequently, many nutritional experts advise consuming 20 to 30 grams of protein periodically during the day.

Can Leucine Consumption Before Exercise Hinder Performance?

Can Leucine Consumption Before Exercise Hinder Performance?

One of the more well-characterized muscle-building supplements is the branched-chain amino acid leucine, which has clearly been shown to inhibit muscle protein breakdown while simultaneously increasing the rate of muscle protein synthesis, ultimately promoting substantial muscle growth.

Arginine Stimulates Protein Synthesis

Arginine Stimulates Protein Synthesis

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, but they also act as stimulators of biochemical pathways that synthesize proteins. Likewise, optimal muscle blood flow is considered important for maximizing muscle protein synthesis in weight-trained athletes.

Sodium Tetra Borate (STB) Boosts Testosterone

Sodium Tetra Borate (STB) Boosts Testosterone

Iranian scientists found that supplementing 10 mgs of boron from Sodium Tetra Borate (STB) per day in healthy young males for a week decreased levels of sex-hormone binding globulin, and significantly increased levels of free testosterone which makes the hormone more biologically active.
