Hey, everyone. If you haven’t noticed, it’s the time of the year when gyms are still crowded, the weather is cooler, and you most likely haven’t cut your calories because it’s still “Bulking season”. And even though you may be doing everything to bulk this season (getting your workouts in, preparing all your meals, and getting enough sleep), you still may not be seeing the result you want. Sure, you’re seeing some gains, but you know it’s not happening as quickly as you would like or as easily as it used to happen. But what you don’t know is why. In truth, there are a few factors that may be keeping you from putting on the muscle you hoped to gain. Today’s product focus address two of the major growth limiting factors: two factors that will no longer be a problem when you try Alchemy Labs’ INFLAME!
To build muscle, your body must go through a few processes. One of the processes, your body’s muscle hypertrophy process, could be a factor in why you are not building as much muscle as you would like to build. Muscle hypertrophy involves two components. The first is the stimulation component. Stimulation occurs when the muscle contracts during weight training. With each rep, muscle fibers are damaged and break down. Once these fibers are broken, the second component begins. Component two occurs when the muscle fibers recover. While your body is resting, it produces new muscle fibers to help repair and replace the damaged fibers. This is when new muscle growth takes place.
The process of muscle hypertrophy is the same for all of us, but it can happen at vastly different rates per person. Some go through muscle hypertrophy much faster than others. And for some, the process is much slower. Your genetic make-up determines your rate of muscle hypertrophy.
Another factor in muscle building is this little annoying protein molecule known as Myostatin. Your body creates Myostatin, but just like muscle hypertrophy, your genetic make-up also determines how much Myostastin is released in your body. Myostatin works to control the growth of muscle. It is catabolic (muscle wasting) in nature. Think of it as your body’s mechanism to keep you from growing too much muscle. For those with a high Myostastin levels, muscle building can feel impossible at times. In other words, you could hit the weights, eat and sleep right, gain strength, but still not put on much muscle mass because your Myostatin is limiting your muscle growth. While it may seem like we are slaves to the genetic hand we were dealt, there is hope in INFLAME. Formulated with muscle growth in mind, the ingredients that compose Alchemy Labs’ INFLAME address these growth-limiting issues and other possible underlying factors!
The main ingredient in Alchemy Labs’ INFLAME is Arachidonic Acid. Arachadoinic Acid (AA) is a fatty acid from the omega-6 class of fatty acids usually found in red meat, eggs, chicken, pork and salmon. More specifically, AA is a proinflammatory omega-6 fatty acid. You may be thinking, “Why would I want a proinflammatory omega-6 fatty acid? Shouldn’t I stick to the anti-inflammatory omega-3’s?” And the answer is, “No.” You should want AA because you are wanting to build muscle! Although omega-3’s are great for their anti-inflammatory properties, when you are wanting to build muscle, you, essentially, want your muscle fibers to be inflamed. So, if your body isn’t producing enough new muscle fibers to replace the damaged ones, AA will help you produce more inflammation in the fibers leading to an increase in the production of new fibers. With more new fibers to replace damaged ones, your body will recover quicker and build new muscle! In other words, Arachadonic acid helps the body work more efficiently during the hypertrophy process! While your body may be predisposition to build muscle slowly, it will no longer be a problem while you are supplementing with Alchemy Labs’ INFLAME! INFLAME gives you 750 milligrams of Arachadonic acid per serving.
Ingredient number two, is Agmatine Sulfate, also referred to as the “Super Arginine” since L-Arginine is derived from Agmatine Sulfate. Imagine you consume 4 grams of L-Arginine before a workout. Barely any of it will reach your muscles to produce nitric oxide, but that is not the case with Agmatine Sulfate. Guess what that means. Better blood flow to your muscles leading to better muscle pumps! Agmatine has also been shown to help increase insulin sensitivity, which is beneficial for those trying to lean out. In addition, Agmatine is also a “nootropic” aid. This means it helps the brain perform with better cognitive function! INFLAME contains 750 milligrams of Agmatine Sulfate per serving.
The next ingredient, deals with the second possible reason why you may not be building muscle. The ingredient is Epicatechin! Epicatechin is one of my personal favorite ingredients, because it is a versatile nutrient. It is a flavanol found in green tea and even more prevalent in dark chocolate. Epicatechin has been shown to be of great benefit to those who strength train and to the endurance athletes. It works as a myostatin inhibitor by increasing another protein known as Follistatin. When you increase Follistatin, you inhibit Myostatin from stunting muscle growth. Epicatechin has also been shown to increase nitric oxide production, help the body with better blood sugar control, and enhance protein synthesis. Because it is sourced from green tea and dark chocolate, Epicatechin is loaded with free radical fighting, anti-aging antioxidants too! Each three capsule serving of INFLAME contains 300 milligrams of Epicatechin.
Androsta-3,5-diene-7,17-dione, better known as Arimistane, is the last ingredient in this powerful formula. Arimistane is a powerful aromatase inhibitor. Aromatase is an enzyme that binds to testosterone and works to convert it into estrogen. In other words, Arimistane helps prevent the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, but it is also great for lowering cortisol in the body. Arimistane has also been shown to help the body reduce fat storage, recovery, enhance libido, and raise testosterone. Many bodybuilders use Arimistane as part of their post cycle therapy, and many weightlifters, who are looking for a natural test/libido boost, also use this ingredient. Arimistane is perfect for anyone who wants to put on lean muscle. That is why Alchemy Labs uses Arimistane in its formula. INFLAME gives you 45 milligrams of Arimistane per serving.
