LEUCINE STIMULATES MUSCLE GROWTH
- Leucine is one of the most effective ways to reverse exercise-induced protein degradation in muscle.
- It has been shown to directly stimulate muscle protein synthesis and inhibit muscle protein breakdown, ultimately promoting muscle growth by activating the nutrient-sensing molecule mTOR.
- It is proven that leucine consumption increased mTOR activity for many hours post-workout, leading to greater muscle protein synthesis.
- An investigation by Pasiakos et al. Demonstrated that the consumption of leucine increase muscle protein synthesis by as much as 33 percent.

PUMP UP WITH BETAINE
- Betaine increases cellular water retention through osmosis. The ability of betaine to maintain hydration reduces the negative impact that dehydration can have on exercise performance – and help your muscles look fuller with more volume.
- Betaine’s uncanny ability to function as an osmolyte increases muscle growth by causing the muscle fiber to swell.
- Research has shown that muscle cell swelling stimulates protein synthesis and decreases protein breakdown, resulting in muscle growth.
- Some of Betaine’s muscle-building effects likely come from its capacity to donate a methyl group, which simply consists of one carbon atom and three hydrogen atoms, which has been shown to increase the production of creatine.
- The ability of Betaine to increase creatine production and muscle cell uptake is the primary reason why Betaine has been shown to significantly increase anaerobic power (strength gains!) in key lifts like the bench press and squat.
- Betaine is highly synergistic when taken with creatine. By preventing the production of homocysteine, betaine leads to a higher production of creatine in the body as well as a higher absorption and utilization rate of supplemental creatine because more of it can be used without being broken down.
- Betaine also propels the repair of joints and even liver tissue, supporting improved recovery.
CREATINE HCL BOOSTS MUSCLE ENERGY, SIZE & STRENGTH
- TITAN NUTRITION utilizes 2000mg of the superior form of Creatine HYDROCHLORIDE for increased muscle gains.
- SUPERIOR BIOAVAILABILITY: With superior solubility and unmatched bioavailability, Creatine HCl gets to work fast. No loading, cramping or water retention.
- ENHANCED SOLUBILITY YOU CAN SEE: Thanks to its superior quality and solubility, Creatine HCl completely dissolves in water, and is ready to drink within seconds. Unlike regular creatine monohydrate powder, our creatine hydrochloride powder leaves no sediment or wasted creatine behind.
- HIGHLY-ABSORBABLE CREATINE HYDROCHLORIDE : If you’ve experienced GI discomfort, or your gut and stomach simply don’t agree with old-school creatine monohydrate, Creatine HCl could be the creatine solution you’ve been looking for. Each serving delivers 2000mg of ultra-pure creatine hydrochloride to fuel your muscles.
