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

The High Intensity Supplement You Can’t Go Without: Workout longer, go further, sleep better*

Widely known for the “tingling” feeling you get after taking it, beta-alanine is a non-essential beta-amino acid taken to enhance endurance and stamina by increasing muscle carnosine levels.4

Highly concentrated in muscle and brain tissues, the carnosine peptide prevents the buildup of hydrogen ions (H+) – the precursor to lactic acid – during high-intensity exercise. When high levels of H+ are present in your cells, your pH levels are lowered and your body becomes overly acidic. To compensate, your muscles begin to increase lactic acid production to remove H+ and return to natural pH levels(lactic acid uses H+ when forming).1,4

When H+ and/or lactic acid levels increase, exhaustion and fatigue set in quickly – no matter if you’re lifting weights or running a marathon.1,4

Beta-Alanine increases your ability to train longer and harder by preventing the build up of H+ and the lactic acid byproduct – increasing the amount of strenuous exercise you can perform and helping to extend the amount of time you can workout before you feel the “burn”.1

Less Waste, Better Recovery

The “burn” from low pH levels and lactic acid don’t just result in reduced performance and time in the gym, but are also thought to be responsible for slower recovery times as both need to be removed from muscle tissue before growth can resume at normal levels.4

Some studies even go as far to suggest that B-alanine could also directly increase strength, power, and muscle mass maintenance through this very same process.

Even the Playing Field: Fast-Twitch Muscle Fibers and B-Alanine

Finally, Beta-alanine is most naturally found in the muscles of sprinters and people who can naturally back on pounds of muscle with little effort.2 While supplementation probably won’t make you a world-class sprinter or bodybuilder, it may certainly level the playing field between you and the world’s best.*

Make Each Workout Go Further

With this in mind, NutraKey has developed one of the most powerful B-alanine supplements yet – ultra micronized for maximum bioavailability and absorption without the waste of other B-alanine formulas. This means that, taken before workouts, NutraKey Beta-alanine could provide an immediate boost to both your workout and recovery – resulting in increased lean muscle, strength, and more efficient workouts.*3

Turn Fat into Fuel: Optimize your body’s ability to convert fat into energy while enhancing performance and recovery*

Closely related to B vitamins and naturally found alongside healthy fats in avocadoes, dairy products, and red meat, L-Carnitine has been used extensively since the 1980s to promote fat-loss, increase energy levels, and protect the brain from free radical damage.1

Primarily found in our muscle and brain tissues, L-Carnitine is essential in the process of transporting long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of our cells. Mitochondria (the energy creators of our bodies), is then able to oxidize this fat into adenosine triphosphate (ATP) or the essential fuel that our bodies need to contract muscles and do just about anything else.1

Without L-Carnitine, it’s difficult for fats to be burned as fuel, so our body resorts to other sources of energy like muscle protein and sugar (glycogen). The result is diminished muscle strength, slow growth, and most notably, stubborn fat reserves that may be extremely difficult to remove.1,5,6

By assisting your body to transform long-chain fatty acids into energy, L-Carnitine is used both as a dieting tool and as a pre-workout supplement.8 Since L-Carnitine promotes fat as the primary source of energy, often greater amounts of glycogen are available in your muscles – allowing you to workout harder while ensuring that greater amounts of energy come from fat instead of muscle.4

L-Carnitine also assists the body by preventing lactic acid from accumulating in your muscles (lactic acid creates the burning feeling when you’re near exhaustion), which means you’ll be able to workout longer and recover more quickly.5,6

For Bulking, Dieting, and More

In short, since L-Carnitine can help limit the amount of new fat storage, it’s perfect for bulking or when trying to gain new, lean muscle. Since L-Carnitine also helps mobilize your body’s fat stores and turn them into energy for your workouts, it’s an essential supplement for anyone dieting or trying to lose weight while preserving lean muscle.1

UK researchers found that subjects taking L-Carnitine burned 55% less muscle glycogen, while increasing fat burning by 55%. They also found that subjects taking L-Carnitine could consume an extra 640 calories of fast-digesting carbs a day without gaining any additional body fat.7

Protect Your Brain and Body

In addition to these proposed fat and lactic acid fighting capabilities, L-Carnitine is also thought to be a potent antioxidant – supporting and protecting both brain and muscle functioning at the highest levels.2 By reducing free radical damage in the brain, it’s thought that L-Carnitine may even enhance cognition, reduce depressive symptoms, and improve sleep.*2

L-Carnitine only works if it’s absorbed

NutraKey’s Carnitine provides maximum absorption and bioavailability in a delicious tasting liquid formula. Unlike some other forms of L-Carnitine, NutraKey has specially developed their L-Carnitine formula for maximum absorption and bioavailability – meaning that your body will get more out of each and every bottle.

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.

Main Benefits Include:

  • Preserve lean muscle tissue
  • Supplies energy under extreme stress (such as during your workout sessions)
  • Helps maintain muscle glycogen levels
  • Maintains nitrogen balance
  • Helps initialize protein synthesis and muscle recovery

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!
