Burn Fat Not Muscle: Protect your gains, recover faster, and diet without fear2,5

In the never-ending battle to stay lean, strong, and increase athletic performance, your body can be your own worst enemy. Through a completely natural process called catabolism, our bodies actually start breaking down the muscle that you’ve worked – especially during the times when you need it most.

All Pain, No Gain: Are Your Workouts Backfiring?

You see, since our bodies can only get Branch Chain Amino Acids (the building blocks of protein which make up 1/3 of our muscles and lean mass) from diet or supplementation, when our bodies don’t have enough of them in our bloodstream, we enter what’s called a catabolic state. This means that our bodies actually start stripping amino acids and protein from our lean muscle mass to free up adequate amounts of amino acids in our bloodstream for fuel.

Most often, this is the result of dieting, intense workouts, or inadequate nutrition – times when we either have lower dietary levels of BCAAs or have used much of our BCAA reserves through exercise.

So even if you’re working hard at the gym and staying disciplined in the kitchen, your hard earned gains may simply be wasting away.

Ensure that your body has the building blocks it needs for quick growth and recovery

While this is obviously a “lose-lose” scenario, by supplementing with BCAAs before and after your workouts, you may prevent much of this muscle breakdown and even increase the amount of fat that’s burned while exercising. Furthermore, with more BCAAs available in your bloodstream, you’ll have more of the raw materials you need for muscle repair and recovery even after you’re finished exercising for the day.4*

As an added bonus, some studies show that BCAA supplementation may even activate the primary muscle growth pathway in your muscle tissue and while increasing protein synthesis.3

A High Potency Formula

NutraKey BCAA is a high potency formula with a specific ratio of branched chain amino acids designed to help enhance absorption and muscle tissue recovery. Each serving of NutraKey ultra-micronized BCAA provides the three free form branched chain amino acids; L-Luecine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine in the proper 2:1:1 ratio and is available in either pure powder or capsules.

In short, adding BCAAs to your supplement and nutrition regime may help ensure that you the muscle and lean body mass that you’ve worked so hard for stays that way.5

More of what your muscles need, less of what they don't: Prevent muscle breakdown, enhance growth and speed up recovery1

As the most abundant non-essential amino acids in your body, Glutamine (glutamic acid) is a crucial component of cell growth, protein synthesis, and muscle/tissue repair.1

Studies have shown that even moderate amounts of exercise can quickly deplete the free glutamine levels throughout your body and muscle tissue to critical levels. When this happens, your body has no choice but to enter a catabolic state - breaking down muscle tissue in order to free the glutamine and BCAAs it needs to function and operate at increased levels of exertion.2

Low Glutamine levels are especially harmful when dieting or training hard, and it may result in significant muscle breakdown and increased recovery time and soreness.1

Got Glutamine?

As one of the most used and studied anti-catabolic agents on the market (15+ years of research and clinical studies), Glutamine is thought to prevent muscle breakdown by assisting BCAAs in fueling muscle contractions and repair.

In addition to reducing catabolism during workouts, Glutamine is directly involved in DNA synthesis and general healing and growth throughout the body. In fact, Glutamine is often used by the medical community as an effective supplement to help heal wounds and illnesses – including cuts, trauma, burns, and the treatment-related side effects of cancer and AIDS.1

Select studies have even shown that Glutamine may result in positive boosts to growth hormone levels – further enhancing growth and reducing the catabolism of muscle tissue.3

If it isn't absorbed, there's no reason to take it

Glutamine powder by NutraKey has been specially formulated for maximum absorption and bioavailability throughout your body. This means that scoop-for-scoop, more of the glutamine you consume will actually be processed and used by your body to help protect muscle and increase growth.

So, if you’re looking to boost your gains, improve recovery time, and use your energy more efficiently, there may not be a better place to start than with glutamine supplementation by NutraKey.

Glutamine 300g powder supplement facts for the Athletic Fit Stack

Main Benefits Include:

  • Promotes lean muscle mass
  • Minimizes muscle breakdown
  • Assists in muscle repair and recovery
  • Supports immune system health

Stay anabolic. Build Muscle.

HMB works with Strength & Recovery. Promotes lean muscle mass. Minimize muscle breakdown. Enhance protein synthesis. Metabolite of essential L-Leucine. Enhances muscle recovery. Promotes lean muscle mass. Helps prevent muscle breakdown. Assists muscle repair & recovery. Supports immune system health. Effective for muscle bulking & cutting. Increase lean muscle & strength. Research published in the journal of applied physiology and other peer reviewed publications has suggested that HMB may have an effect on increasing muscle weight and strength. Assists in protein synthesis.

Why do this? Because studies show that BCAA’s enhances recovery & help prevent muscle breakdown during intensity/overload training.
HMB (beta-hydroxy beta-methlbutyrate) is a metabolite of the branched chain amino acid, Leucine and plays a role in protein synthesis (muscle building). Due to it’s properties, HMB would be an effective supplement to use while bulking, but even more powerful when one is cutting with decreased calories and needs to preserve lean mass.

Why not just take leucine? HMB is produced by the liver enzyme -ketoisocaproate (KIC) oxygenase and this enzyme only accounts for 5% of leucine oxidation. Therefore one would not get enough HMB to obtain the positive effects seen in studies. An increase in leucine consumption would no doubt increase the amount of HMB produced, though it does not guarantee targeted amount will be created due to limited enzyme activity. Combine HMB with BCAA’s. Why do this? Because studies show that BCAA’s enhances recovery & helps prevent muscle breakdown during intensity/overload training.

Anabolic Amino

Of all the amino acids that you take in on a daily basis, L-Leucine may just be the most beneficial. Leucine is an essential branched chain amino acid, which means your body cannot make it and you have to get Leucine from your daily diet. Leucine can be found in foods like nuts, wheat pasta/bread, and brown rice and whey protein powder.

L-Leucine is important for both general health as well as athletic performance. If you are trying to transform your body by burning fat and building strong, lean muscle, Leucine will make a great addition to your supplement stack. Leucine stimulates muscle protein synthesis and may be the major fuel involved in anabolic (tissue building) reactions. This makes Leucine especially important for body builders and other athletes in sports that demand explosive strength.

In order to see the best intended benefits from L-Leucine, you want to take L-Leucine with other amino acids. Getting a full amino acid profile is going to be key for building lean muscle mass and getting toned. L-Leucine stacks well with L-Valine and L-Isoleucine, the other BCAAs - branched chain amino acids. A good ratio to go for is 2:2:1 - Leucine, Valine, Isoleucine. Many products already blend the BCAAs in this ratio.

L-Leucine also stacks well with whey protein or other protein powders, other muscle building products or other fat loss products. L-Leucine is a great product to stack with just about anything!
