What is MuscLean?
MuscLean is a scientifically designed low sugar, protein-based lean muscle building weight gainer. It is not a traditional high calorie gainer, rather is designed to target the muscle providing high impact nutrients to increase muscle strength and recovery.*
How does MuscLean work?
The rapid absorbing ingredients in MuscLean help to increase the muscle’s ability to rebuild faster and continue to build long after your training session. Our rapid absorbing, low bloat blend of proteins and fat have been specifically engineered to help with during-workout recovery, as well as providing a constant nutrient supply post exercise. We added specific ingredients to help with immune function as well as general overall health. When using MuscLean, you will notice increased energy and strength throughout your day, which helps maintain power and strength, allowing you to work harder and stronger all the way through your workouts. MuscLean can be taken anytime of the day, but may have a more powerful effect if consumed immediately following exercise.*
What kind of results can I expect from using MuscLean?
Over time, you should expect to have stronger muscle contractions, greater overall strength, less post-exercise soreness, and denser, harder lean muscle within a few weeks of use. In addition, you may experience less tendency to binge eat as several persons have felt satiated after consumption and thus have seen weight loss even while building muscle.*
What's inside MuscLean?
The combined ingredients within MuscLean utilize a low-carb approach to provide energy, muscle-building, and general health properties through its use of its highly effective Protizyme protein blend along with key fatty acids and oils. Specific forms of fast absorbing, high efficacy proteins and fats stimulate muscle recovery and improve strength and size. Finally, key minerals, vitamins and electrolytes, have been added to help improve uptake, maintain hydration, and reduce muscle soreness post exercise. In all, MuscLean has taken all the aspects of traditional weight-gainer dilemmas, conquered them, and combined specific ingredients in to one powerful muscle building product.*
Why Is There So Much Fat?
The combined ingredients within MuscLean utilize a specific muscle-building approach where the fats are responsible for helping build muscle, fuel recovery, and provide better energy throughout the day. Since the added fats are essential fatty acids, combined of omega oils and medium chain triglycerides, they not only absorb more rapidly, but they help with many body functions where the stress of exercise presents immediate attention. In all, the fat content will fall within your daily requirements for healthy weight management and allow you to consume one product for your essential fat needs.*
What are the benefits of the added vitamins and minerals?
The idea behind formulating MuscLean with additional vitamins and minerals was two-fold. First, fortifying proteins and fats with essential vitamins and minerals help to improve overall function and absorption of key nutrients that help with muscle building. Secondly, the added nutrients provide better overall health gains and reduces the need to consume additional vitamins and minerals depending on your health and fitness goals.*
What is the difference between MuscLean and Protizyme?
The main differences between Protizyme and MuscLean is found in the use of specific essential fatty acids and oils that help improve muscle strength, muscle recovery, and fuel overall muscle-building health gains. Along with a few other essential nutrients, MuscLean was designed to allow serious lifters to increase their muscle building potential over simply consuming protein. While Protizyme is highly effective for both inactive and active persons, MuscLean takes it a step further to focus on muscle development.*
Why is MuscLean better than other weight gainers?
Most weight gainers are simply that – they help you gain weight. Most weight gainers and muscle builders have high carbs to help temporarily fill muscle, or creatine as it does have very good muscle-building properties. Since we know most people want to gain muscle mass without building up a bunch of useless body fat, we designed MuscLean to focus on the needed ingredients for muscle building. Since each person responds differently to how they process protein, fats, carbs and other nutrients, rather just add a bunch of different carb sources, we went the other route providing a serious dose of protein along with specific essential fats that address the strength and recovery sides of building muscle. Additionally, you can always add CGP creatine if desired, or whatever other Metabolic Nutrition products. Our unique formulation allows just about anyone to use MuscLean whether looking for huge mass or just a little additional lean muscle. And finally, MuscLean has a dosed-response scoop and serving size suggestion which means you can dial in the exact amount you need based on your energy levels, the other products you stack, and your body size, for maximal results.*
How do I take MuscLean for optimal results?
For optimal results, take MuscLean within 15 to 30 minutes after you exercise. Since absorption and utilization of ingredients varies per individual, keep track of your recovery and muscle soreness post workout and then consume according to your needs. MuscLean can be stacked with Tri-Pep, TAG, CGP, or other Metabolic Nutrition products depending on your overall fitness goals.*
Do I need to "load" or "cycle" MuscLean?
You do not need to load or cycle MuscLean, simply use it any time of the day, especially after your workout and as you feel the need to add more protein in to your diet. Also MuscLean is a great meal replacement or additive to a daily sports shake. While MuscLean does not contain any ingredients that would alter your body’s ability to function normally, it is always advised to take a week or two off from supplements every 12 to 16 weeks just to allow your body a chance to reset itself.*
Can I take MuscLean with other products?
You can take MuscLean with other Metabolic Nutrition products including CGP, TAG, Tri-Pep, and our fat burners such as Synedrex. Additionally, you can use our pre-workouts such as ESP and PSP, although mixing the two may present a weird taste profile. If you dose MuscLean maximally, you should be careful not to take any other protein supplements within 4 hours of consumption as you will have a hard time digesting all of the protein.*
Are there any known side effects when using MuscLean?
All of the ingredients in MuscLean have been pre-screened prior to formulation and are generally recognized as safe. However, in some cases, with any supplement, some persons do experience specific allergic reactions. While there have been no reports of these incidences with the use of MuscLean, if this occurs, discontinue use and see if the symptoms disappear, otherwise consult a physician. Like all supplements, you should consult your physician prior to using MuscLean as well as read and understand the entire label to make sure that you are not allergic to or intolerant to specific ingredients.*
Why should I use MuscLean?
If you want to build larger, more defined muscle and improve overall recovery time, then MuscLean, when dosed properly, can take your training up several notches. Those looking to get more out of their muscle-building workouts and train harder and longer, will find MuscLean will deliver on demand, rapidly, and for prolonged periods.*
Who should use MuscLean?
MuscLean is great for anyone looking to build more dense muscle or substitute their diet with a healthy protein alternative. At maximal dosage, it is specifically designed to help enhance true lean muscle and exercise sessions designed around a hypertrophy-based program. While MuscLean is a safe and effective protein blend, children should not consume MuscLean, nor should pregnant women or persons with existing health conditions without consulting a physician prior to use. All persons, should assess their own tolerance and allergies before using any product.*
Can women use MuscLean?
Absolutely. Since MuscLean has recommended scoop suggestions allowing users to dose accordingly, smaller or larger persons can find their suitable dose. The ingredients within MuscLean do not specifically address male or female issues thus making it perfect for both sexes.*
What does MuscLean taste like?
MuscLean comes in 4 incredible flavors. You will wonder if you are drinking a high-calorie milkshake as there is no bitter or foul taste.*
Why do we use Sucralose instead of other sweeteners?
Sucralose is used as a sweetener due to its high impact sweetness factor. This allows us to use significantly less of this sweetener than other comparable sweeteners. Metabolic Nutrition also develops it own flavor system for its products so we were able to use even significantly less Sucralose than other companies and still derive a very “natural” taste characteristic. Based on this we use 1/1000 less sweetener than other comparable formulas. As compared to other natural sweeteners, such as Stevia, we would have had to use upwards of 10,000x the amount of Stevia to produce the same sweetness level and that would have come at a cost in terms of price of product (higher), bad or chemical off notes, and significant digestive issues.*
What are the peptide benefits of Immunoglobulins?
These ultra-small peptides are usually referred to as the “magic” of Mother’s milk. They are the components of pre and first milk that aid in boosting recovery rate, building of lean muscle mass, fortifying your immune-system, increasing growth hormone levels, and aiding in macro nutrient assimilation.*
What do the percentages mean in the ingredient profile for the immunoglobulins?
These percentages are the percentages of the different immunoglobulin peptides composed in in our protein matrix. All proteins have immunoglobulins, however the more extracted the protein is, the higher the immunoglobulin concentration is.*
Why is there Lactase in the MuscLean if its lactose free?
We include Lactase in our proprietary enzyme complex to allow our consumers to choose to mix MuscLean in milk or other lactose-containing beverages. Therefore, we account for an enzyme to assist with this breakdown of lactose sugar.*
What are Lecithin, Xanthan Gum, and Guar Gum used for?
These ingredients are used to help make sure MuscLean has a nice consistent mouthfeel, similar to drinking milk when only mixed in water. It also has a secondary benefit in which these stabilizers help maintain a homogeneous blend of all the ingredients when mixed in water, keeping the same consistent mouthfeel and flavor from the 1st sip to the last.*
What are the benefits of the digestive enzyme blend?
The digestive enzymes in MuscLean aid in the rapid and efficient digestibility and absorbability of the protein. This creates less work for the body so it can focus more on the utilization of the protein and allow it to enter the blood stream rapidly for immediate use.*
Are there any scientific studies to support MuscLean?
There are several studies supporting each of the ingredients in MuscLean as well as studies showing the effects of combining several ingredients. The scientific team at Metabolic Nutrition is constantly testing ingredients and analyzing research, as well, each product is fully tested using trial groups to ascertain efficacy and potency of the end product.
