No Code, NOT your average Amino drink. HR LABS utilise a Leucine enhanced, clinically substantiated blend of the 9 essential Amino Acids in addition to 750mg of Phosphatidic Acid & 1500mg of hydroxy-isocaproic acid (HICA) to provide the ultimate muscle protein synthesis ignition switch.
BCAA’s were long considering the elite when it came to Amino supplementation, but recent research has concluded that this is not actually the case. In fact, all 9 Essential Amino Acids are necessary to effectively elevate MPS for a significant period of time. BCAA’s and crucially Leucine, the ‘trigger’ Amino, are an important part of the bigger picture.
Phosphatidic Acid (PA) plays a vital role in mTOR signalling, which in turn increases Muscle Protein Synthesis. MPS is largely responsible for increasing skeletal muscle hypertrophy and lean body mass. In Layman’s terms, it brings da gains.
750mg of PA was shown in a number of double-blind placebo studies to significantly improvement both strength and lean muscle mass in resistance trained men. Not your Granny, not your 15 year old Cousin from Newbie Gainsville but normal dude’s in the gym aka you or someone you know.
HICA is a Leucine metabolite, not dissimilar to, but in no way as contentious as, HMB, which has also been shown in studies to positively influence MPS and potentially inhibit Muscle Protein Breakdown. Supplementation at 500mg, taken 3 times daily was concluded to significantly reduce DOMS (muscle soreness) post exercise and increase lean muscle mass.
Finally, No Code contains natural sources of key electrolytes to aid with hydration, which is essential for optimal performance. Aquamin® derived from both Marine Minerals and Marine Algae is a highly bioavailable source of both Magnesium and Calcium. Cocomineral™ Coconut Water is rich in both Potassium and Sodium. The combination of these 3 sources ensure you have all bases covered.
