It goes without saying that after your workout, you’ll remember to consume your protein and your creatine to ensure you’ve got the building blocks and performance – enhancing, muscle-energizing compounds to help you add some serious gains. However, did you know that besides immediately post workout, one of the most important windows of opportunity to support recovery is during your sleep? Proper sleep provides your body a chance to rest, relax, and recuperate during the night. You must get proper sleep, especially since emerging research suggests that sleep deprivation is associated with muscle loss.1
The good news is that Team MuscleTech Researchers have engineered the perfect supplement to complement your dreams of building a chiselled, herculean physique. It’s called Muscle Builder PM, a unique and convenient nighttime recovery formula. This formula is scientifically engineered to support your body’s ability to recover from your training each night, while you sleep. Each serving delivers popular ingredients associated with nighttime formulas including melatonin, lemon balm extract, L-theanine, GABA, and valerian extract. But it doesn’t stop there. The real magic comes with the inclusion of other key clinically studied components which are scientifically shown to support various physiological processes associated with recovery and supporting anabolism, while helping to combat catabolic processes within the body.
CinDura® – Powerful Botanical Muscle Building Performance Enhancing Complex
Muscle Builder PM delivers 800mg of a special botanical combination called CinDura®. This powerful complex comprises a unique clinically studied and patented combination of Cinnamomum tamala and Garcinia mangostana extracts. This one-of-a-kind botanical matrix is believed by researchers to work by helping optimize energy production (ATP) through the mitochondria and combat muscle breakdown by helping inhibit the proteasome pathway. In so doing, CinDura® can help trigger greater strength, endurance, and lean muscle gains. In fact, in a 6-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, subjects taking CinDura® while training, increased lean body mass by an average of 5 lbs vs. just 1.1 lbs in the placebo group. Furthermore, the same subjects taking CinDura® increase their muscular endurance as assessed using leg extensions by an average of 6.6 reps. vs. just 2.1 reps in the placebo group.2 With CinDura® you’ll have that added edge to trigger gains in size and performance and transform your dreams into reality.
Tart Cherry – Muscle Recovery and Reduced Soreness
Muscle Builder PM also features the 480mg dose of tart cherry extract that has been shown in research to improve recovery through the reduction of post-exercise muscle soreness. Tart cherries contain high levels of flavonoids and anthocyanins, which researchers believe helps facilitate an internal environment within muscle tissue conducive to recovery from muscle damaging exercise.3,4 It does so by attenuating markers of muscle catabolism.4,5 In fact, in a study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, researchers discovered that consumption of tart cherry supplement 7-days before, the day of, and 2-days after completing an endurance running challenge, appears to be an effective dietary supplement that may help attenuate post-run markers of muscle catabolism and physiological stress in aerobically trained individuals.5 With Tart Cherry in your corner you’ll have what it takes to hit the gym again after your workouts in no time.
Boron – Boost Free-Testosterone and Decrease Estradiol in Just 7 days
Testosterone is the primary anabolic hormone in men, and it plays an essential part in recovery from training, since it supports various anabolic processes in the body. Testosterone induces anabolic and anti-catabolic mechanisms involved in muscle tissue growth, recovery, and remodeling, and performance enhancement.6 Since testosterone is instrumental in supporting recovery from training and stimulating muscle growth, Team MuscleTech researchers have formulated Muscle Builder PM with an exact 10 mg dose of boron, that was scientifically shown to increase free testosterone levels and decrease estradiol levels in healthy men, in just 7 days. Free testosterone is the most biologically active form of testosterone because it can easily interact with the receptors in muscles and trigger the mechanisms involved in supporting recovery and growth. In a clinical study published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, the researchers observed a significant decrease in plasma estradiol in healthy men after just one week supplementation, and they remarked that this indicates a higher rate of conversion of total testosterone to free testosterone in the testosterone metabolic pathway.7 Helping to optimize your free testosterone within the normal range is conducive to the gains you’re looking for when you train.
Sensoril® (Withania somnifera) – Combat Catabolic Hormone Cortisol
Sensoril® Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is an adaptogenic herbal ingredient that has been scientifically shown to significantly lower serum cortisol levels. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled human study published in the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association, researchers gave 19 subjects 125mg of Sensoril®Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) each day. After two months, researchers found that cortisol levels had significantly decreased. A high level of cortisol is not conducive to muscle growth. This is because cortisol functions to increase the breakdown of protein and facilitates its conversion into forms that can be used as energy sources by your body, and prolonged cortisol elevation can lead to muscle breakdown.9
Transform Your Dreams into Reality
As you can tell Muscle Builder PM is engineered to be a comprehensive and convenient nighttime recovery and muscle building product. Each serving is just three capsules taken 30 to 45 minutes before going to bed at night. As always, read the label completely and follow the directions carefully for best results. With Muscle Builder PM as part of your nighttime regimen, you’ll be supplementing with a well engineered formula with key ingredients backed by real clinical research showing support for muscle recovery, growth, strength, and performance enhancement. The formula will help give you an anabolic edge over your competition, and their pipedreams of building a better physique than you!
To optimize your sleep routine, be sure to add the ultimate sleep set to your bed!
