Carbohydrates are essential to packing on functional mass, and if youâ€™re not fueling up with the proper types, the body will breakdown protein (read: muscle tissue) to compensate. This blend of three carbohydrate forms (corn maltodextrin, rice maltodextrin, and Karbo-lynâ„¢) supplies your body with the much-needed fuel to restore muscle glycogen reserves depleted during mammoth training sessions, which in turn deters muscle breakdown and delays â€œhitting the wall.â€ Karbo-lyn in particular is new to the revamped MUSCLE JUICE formula. Its high molecular weight enables it to pass through the stomach faster than dextrose or sugar, transforming it into a pump that pulls along water and nutrients, providing superior and more rapid absorption. Counterintuitive as it may sound, healthy fats are critical to maximize muscle growth. This healthy fats blend is comprised of canola oil, medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), Omega-3 fish oil, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), all of which are vital to increasing energy and maximizing muscle tissue repair. Protein enzymes are critical for optimum protein digestion and ensuing amino acid absorption. However, when endogenous enzyme levels are overwhelmed by the sheer avalanche of the Octo-PRO Protein Blend, amino acids may not be absorbed and go to waste instead! The enzyme duo of protease and lactase counters that, optimizing digestion so that protein and nutrients can do their job: building back-slapping, hand-breaking rock hard mass!
