MaxxTOR™ is a truly revolutionary and innovative new product from Max Muscle Sports Nutrition that contains the key patented ingredient proven to significantly increase muscle protein synthesis, muscle size, strength and power while at the same time decrease body fat.
MaxxTOR™ is driven by Mediator® Phosphatidic Acid (PA), one of the most powerful molecular activators of the mammalian target of rapamysin (mTOR) signaling pathway. The protein enzyme kinase mTOR is the master regulator of the signaling network that controls skeletal muscle growth (muscular hypertrophy). Research studies have shown that an elevation in PA activates mTOR signaling that is induced by mechanical muscle activation (e.g., weightlifting). The proposed mechanism is that PA binds and activates signaling pathways controlling protein synthesis involving phosphorylation of the target enzymes Akt/mTOR (rapamycin), a protein kinase and the sequential stimulation of p70 ribosomal S6 kinase (p70 S6K) through enhanced translation of specific mRNAs. The Akt/mTOR pathway in muscle is upregulated during the hypertrophy (increase in muscle size) phase.
A recent double-blind research study conducted by Dr. Jacob Wilson and his research team at The University of Tampa using Mediator® Phosphatidic Acid with resistance training produced the following dramatic results:
- Subjects gained 5.3 lbs. of lean muscle mass and produced a 200% increase in lean muscle mass than subjects who worked out intensely alone!*
- Subjects lost 2.9 lbs. of fat mass and allowed subjects to lose 260% more fat mass than subjects who worked out intensely alone!*
- Subjects gained 47% in bench press strength!*
- Subjects gained 68% more cross sectional area in their rectus femoris (large quadriceps muscles) vs. placebo subjects*
The MaxxTOR™ formula developed by the Research & Development Team at Max Muscle Sports Nutrition has combined Mediator® Phosphatidic Acid with other key synergistic ingredients including L-Leucine, Beta-Hydroxy-Beta-Methylbutyrate (HMB) and Vitamin D3 to deliver the most powerful mTOR Signaling Activator ever developed.†
MaxxTOR™ is the ONLY formula that combines these key ingredients in the correct, efficacious amounts.
Leucine is an essential branched-chain amino acid and possesses the most marked anabolic effect compared to any amino acid on triggering protein synthesis, muscle cell growth and decreasing the rate of protein breakdown (degredation) in muscles. Leucine initiates the signaling of mTOR through upregulation of gene transcription and translation. Additionally, leucine has a sparing effect on muscle glycogen and decreases lactic acid production. Beta-Hydroxy-Beta- Methylbutryate (HMB) is a metabolite of leucine. It has been shown in numerous research studies that HMB, in conjuction with resistance training, increases protein synthesis, strength gains and lean body mass. HMB supports the integrity of muscle fibers and protects important contractile proteins in addition to enhancing recovery by attenuating exercise induced muscle damage in both trained and untrained individuals. 1,25(OH) Vitamin D3 has been shown to play an important role on muscle mass and function. 1,25(OH) Vitamin D3 enhances the stimulating effect of leucine and insulin on protein synthesis. 1,25(OH) Vitamin D3 sensitizes the Akt/mTOR-dependent pathway to the stimulating effect of leucine.
