8:1:1 mTOR XT from Starlabs Nutrition® is an all-in-one groundbreaking no-sugar formula if you are looking to build lean muscle and recover quickly. An additional benefit is that it delays fatigue allowing you to train harder and longer.
BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) make up a third of the human muscle protein. They cannot be synthesized by the body but must be supplied through the diet. The body uses BCAAs to promote healing of injured tissues, speed up recovery and protect against muscle tissue breakdown during exercise. The reason for the unique BCAA 8:1:1 ratio of L-leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine is because leucine is the amino acid with the strongest mTOR activation. It therefore aids in stimulating the protein synthesis faster in comparison with a lower ratio. All three amino acids blunt the cortisol level (a catabolic hormone) when consumed immediately after workout and they also elevate insulin and GH level signaling more lean muscle growth.
8:1:1 mTOR delivers 1g of taurine per serving. Taurine enhances endurance and recent studies show that taurine improves the absorption and effect of BCAAs. The combination of BCAAs and taurine have been proven to reduce muscle soreness even more than supplementation with BCAAs alone.
The formula has been enriched with Osmovol + Hydration Complex®, a new patented formula, with an exact dose of minerals and vitamins designed to improve the absorption of nutrients, nervous reactions and muscle function, also preventing cramps and muscle pain.
Not only does it help the recovery of lost mineral salts during training, but also, being a highly alkaline complex, it counteracts metabolic acidosis that can cause hyperventilation, muscle fatigue or hypotension.
Its studied formula of minerals and vitamins contains Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Sodium, Chlorine, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin B6.
