Beef has proven itself as a favourite anabolic protein source for many champion bodybuilders. MuscleMeds advanced hydrolyzed Beef Protein Isolate is capable of delivering rapid absorption of high concentrations of amino acids fast. Carnivor Mass provides the mass building benefits of beef “at the speed of whey,” without the lactose, allergies, fat, cholesterol and other problems associated with dairy products. MuscleMeds BPI is 350% more concentrated in amino acids than steak and more concentrated than whey. And it’s enhanced with 5 grams of creatine and additional BCAAs for even greater anabolic power!
Insulin Release Amplification
The speed at which a nutrient particle is absorbed is partly a function of its surface area. The greater the surface area the more digestive enzyme molecules can react with it simultaneously. This promotes greater rates of absorption and amplified insulin release. The MuscleMeds lab managed to reduce the average size of the carbohydrates particles in iSpike while increasing the total number of particles. The result is a staggering increase in reactive surface area and faster absorption. This could result in the feeling of anabolism you’ve been waiting for!
Did you know that when you drink calories rather than chew them, you skip the important first step of carbohydrate digestion and bypass carbohydrate digesting enzymes secreted into your saliva? This fact has been totally neglected by makers of conventional mass gainers. It can result in a delay in caloric absorption. iSpike addresses this problem with a natural system of amylases that slices through every carbohydrate particle in its path. iSpike enzymes act on straight chains of glucose molecules as well as at branch points. This encourages insulin release amplification that wouldn’t be possible with regular foods or garden-variety mass gainers.
High-speed BPI, surface area enhanced carbohydrates and a multi-action enzyme system – you’d think this combination would be enough to create some major mass gains. But MuscleMeds went a step further by giving iSpike a novel amino acid for increased mass building effects. Now every serving of Carnivor Mass has the potential to deliver that much more of an anabolic impact.
Once insulin is released into the bloodstream, it has to find its way into muscle tissue where it can transmit anabolic signals. If you’ve never heard of adiponectin, you’re not alone. Scientists believe that adiponectin may function as a gatekeeper, allowing more insulin to reach your muscles upon entering the bloodstream. This is critical if you want the calories you eat to be used to build muscle mass and not be stored as fat. The botanical extract ingredient in Carnivor Mass was shown to have a positive effect on adiponectin levels which may result in greater muscle gain.
Providing iSpike with its second and third layers of insulin signal amplifying support is a patent-pending mineral known as Chromium 454 (Cr454) and D-pinitol (a cyclitol). These two compounds take over where insulin leaves off, opening up even more “doors” on the surface of your muscle cells through which glucose can penetrate. In vitro study results show that Cr454 increases glucose uptake into human skeletal muscle cells by an impressive 300%. With more glucose entering your muscle cells in the presence of insulin, even stronger anabolic signals are possible, which support faster speeds of glycogen replenishment and mass building.
