HICA-Max Muscle Growth Support Overview
Labrada HICA-Max Muscle Growth Stimulator contains a potent natural metabolite of the branched-chain amino acid l-leucine, known as leucic acid. Leucic acid, also called alpha-hydroxy-isocaproic acid (HICA), promotes muscle anabolism by increasing protein synthesis and reducing catabolic breakdown of muscle protein. It is thought that leucic acid is one of the key anabolic triggers that make l-leucine such a powerful amino acid. In addition to promoting lean muscle growth through increased protein synthesis, HICA-Max is also thought to be responsible for increasing localized levels of IGF-1 and other growth factors that are found in higher concentrations in those supplementing with leucic acid. Many studies suggest that supplementing with leucic acid can trigger up to twice the lean muscle gains solely from improving protein synthesis and increasing nitrogen retention.
HICA-Max is most effective when taken evenly throughout the day and especially when taken immediately post-workout when muscle anabolism is most desired. Many find it convenient to take one tablet of HICA-Max in the morning, one in the afternoon or evening and one tablet post-workout. Labrada HICA-Max is a highly effective non-hormonal lean muscle catalyst that can help you build dense, quality muscle in a completely all-natural manner. HICA-Max does not need to be cycled and can be used continually so you can always enjoy its natural muscle building effects.
HICA-Max Muscle Growth Support Description from Labrada
HICA-MAX chewables deliver leucic acid, also known as alpha-hydroxy-isocaproic acid (HICA), a natural metabolite of the branched chain amino acid, leucine. HICA is produced within and actively transported into skeletal muscle, delaying fatigue, reducing muscle breakdown, and promoting the anabolic effect of exercise.
