• Stimulates Protein Synthesis
• Reduces Inflammation
• Reduces Protein Breakdown
• Reduces Body Fat
• Increases Lean Muscle Mass
The quality and quantity of muscle that each of us possess is essentially
controlled by protein turnover; a remodeling process that involves the
continuous synthesis (anabolism) and breakdown (catabolism) of muscle protein. A
gain in muscle mass can only occur via a reduction in the rate at which protein
is broken down or an increase in the rate of protein synthesis. However, intense
exercise causes a dramatic increase in protein turnover; both synthesis and
breakdown accelerate at equal rates. The result is a negative protein balance
and zero muscle gains from training.
Myo-D’s unique formulation is shown in research to reduce muscle breakdown and
stimulate an increase in protein synthesis. Myo-D promotes muscle gains during
intense training by enhancing not one, but the two key processes that are
essential to gaining muscle mass.

Myo-D contains a unique 5:1 ratio of EPA:DHA which means a much more potent dose
of bioactive EPA than any other product on the market. EPA (eicosapentaenoic
acid) is the naturally occurring compound shown in research to block excessive
muscle breakdown by reducing the activity of the major biochemical pathway that
results in the destruction of muscle protein and loss of muscle mass. In
clinical studies, EPA is shown to work at the molecular level and block muscle
protein catabolism by reducing the activity of the ATP-ubiquitin-proteasome
proteolytic pathway, the major pathway of protein catabolism in muscle.
Research shows that this pathway is highly active in illnesses that promote
muscle wasting, but also active during times of calorie restriction. The
capacity of EPA to block excessive muscle protein breakdown is powerful; it’s
anti-catabolic effects are shown to be even more potent than IGF-1. If you’re
dieting to shed body fat, Myo-D could be you’re best ally. Regular use will help
you keep your hard earned muscle during dieting and contest preparation.
A high stimulation of muscle protein synthesis is essential to gaining muscle
mass, but it also underlines rapid recovery. Myo-D also contains a precision
blend of the most potent amino acids shown in research to activate protein
synthesis within muscle. Therefore, every serving of Myo-D helps to enhance
recovery and gains in muscle mass gains via two vital processes.
Firstly, Myo-D’s ultra-high concentration of bioactive EPA blocks excessive
protein breakdown. Secondly, Myo-D provides a high dose of the amino acids that
directly activate muscle protein synthesis.
In research, the formulation within Myo-D is shown to promote a greater anabolic
effect than regular EPA alone or EPA combined with protein.10 Myo-D is
scientifically formulated to reduce muscle breakdown and stimulate an increase
in protein synthesis. Therefore, Myo-D could be the most powerful,
non-prescription bodybuilding supplement available.
Inflammation is an essential part of immune activation that clears debris and
destroys pathogens. However, excessive inflammation produced by intense exercise
can result in poor recovery, chronic joint pain and muscle loss. By reducing
excess inflammation within muscle and connective tissue will provide the athlete
with a big head start in terms of recovery from exercise.
EPA is essential to the manufacture of Series-3 Prostaglandins (short lived
muscle growth factors), and Series-5 Leukotrienes (highly active immune cells)
that work to reduce muscle inflammation. Therefore, Myo-D’s 5:1 ratio of EPA
provides an ultra-high dose that helps reduce tissue inflammation and speed
recovery during intense exercise.
The cornerstone of building a lean, healthy, physique is efficient insulin
metabolism. Insulin is the hormone essential to nutrient transport into cells.
Therefore, a dietary compound that can improve insulin metabolism offers a huge
advantage for anyone attempting to shed fat or build a lean physique.
The high dose of EPA in Myo-D is shown to promote an insulin-sensitizing effect
in tissue, even in healthy people that do not have diabetes. That means more
calories are directed towards lean tissue for recovery and growth while less
calories are stores as body fat.
EPA is also known to enhance fat metabolism during exercise. Regular
supplementation with EPA appears to increase fat utilization during exercise.
Therefore, Myo-D’s 5:1 ratio of EPA provides an ultra-high dose that promotes
efficient insulin metabolism and greater fat utilization during exercise.
Myo-D promotes a high rate of muscle anabolism by minimizing protein breakdown
and stimulating protein synthesis. Regular use of Myo-D will also help improve
insulin metabolism and promote better fat loss during exercise training.
Clearly, no other dietary supplement is shown in research to provide
bodybuilders with so many important advantages that help build a lean, muscular
