A Supplement Strategy for Larger, Stronger Muscles
Learn how to use Phosphatidic Acid to improve your muscle's response to strength training.
MTor (Mechanistic Target of Rapamycin) is the enzyme in the body that is like the construction worker who waits for the bricks and mortar to arrive to build a wall. But in our case, the wall is not made of cement - but muscle tissue. In other words, if you want to put yourself in the best position to build larger, stronger muscles, the goal must be to get as much out of MTor as possible.
Strength training is the best way to signal MTor, as any mechanical tension placed on the body (including stretching) will heighten the activity of the enzyme – but only for a limited time, usually two to three hours post-training. But a clinically supported nutrition strategy to increase the amount of time that MTor is activated is to supplement with 1500mg of Phosphatidic Acid (PA) thirty to sixty minutes before your training session. As PA is what stimulates MTor to activate, having more of it in the body at the right time will prolong the period that MTor continues to work post-training, giving you more opportunities to provide this “construction worker” with the bricks and mortar (amino acids and carbohydrate) needed to build muscle tissue.
