Ingredients: One serving (5 tablets) supplies a total of 4.5 g of BCAAs; namely, leucine, isoleucine, and valine
Supplement Facts

Who it’s ideal for: Anyone who is trying to increase lean muscle mass or enhance recovery.

When to use it: Muscle Mass is ideally taken:

  • Upon awakening in the morning
  • Before, during, or after training

In the middle of the night. (For instance, bodybuilders sometimes consume a small amount of protein if they wake up in the middle of the night. Doing so can aid in muscle preservation. This would be a good time to take Muscle Mass.)

How much to take: The number of Muscle Mass tablets you take will depend in part on your goals. Here are some suggestions for maximum results:

  • To gain lean muscle mass: Take a total of 1 tablet per 10 lb of body weight during your workout (e.g. 18 tablets for a 180-lb individual; 12 tablets for a 120-lb individual). Divide your allotment of tablets into smaller doses (e.g. 4-5 tablets per dose). Take 1 dose every 10-15 minutes during your workout.
  • For overall physical performance: Take 5 tablets with your pre-workout and post-workout meals (10 tablets total)
  • When preparing for a physique competition: Take 10 tablets upon arising and with your pre-workout meal (20 tablets total)

Formula #2: Muscularity

What it is: A Branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) capsule.

Muscularity BCAAs plus B vitamins zinc chromium

Ingredients: One serving (6 capsules) supplies 4.2 g of BCAAs plus B vitamins, zinc and chromium.

Who it’s ideal for: Anyone who is on a weight-loss or fat-loss diet and wants to hold on to as much lean muscle as possible.

How much to take: For maximum results:

  •  Take 2 capsules with breakfast, lunch, and dinner (6 capsules total).

How to choose between Muscle Mass and Muscularity:

  • If you’re on a weight-loss or fat-loss diet, then take Muscularity. Taking it right before meals will promote muscle preservation. The vitamins and minerals in Muscularity, especially chromium, will also support blood sugar and appetite regulation. We all know how hard it is to avoid giving in to cravings when dieting!
