MyoBuild 4X is the most advanced BCAA and recovery formula on the market! A 4:1:1 ratio of BCAAs featuring a scientifically studied dose of leucine, plus isoleucine, valine, betaine, taurine and tart cherry, works to build muscle, increase strength, improve recovery and reduce muscle breakdown! You’ll get a formula that keeps you hydrated, while working to build muscle and give you the BCAAs you need, all in one convenient bottle! INCREASE STRENGTH BY 40% MyoBuild 4X is precisely formulated with a 4g dose of L-leucine (in 2 scoops). Leucine is the most critical of all musclebuilding amino acids and has the highest anabolic potential, because it activates protein synthesis within the muscle via the mTOR pathway. MuscleTech researchers ensured each serving of MyoBuild 4X has this exact 4g dose of leucine that was shown in a clinical study to help subjects increase their 5-rep max strength by over 40%! SUBJECTS BUILT 3.75 LBS. OF MUSCLE IN 6 WEEKS! Betaine is one of the hottest new musclebuilding ingredients, thanks to its ability to increase lean muscle, size, strength and power! In fact, test subjects who supplemented with the exact 2.5g dose of betaine in 2 scoops of MyoBuild 4X built 3.75 lbs. of lean muscle in 6 weeks compared to 0.66 lbs. by the placebo group. That’s over 4 times more muscle (vs. the placebo)! Betaine has been shown in a separate study to also enhance muscle endurance. In this study, active college males taking 1.25g of betaine per day for 2 weeks improved muscle endurance and increased the quality of repetitions performed, (as determined by squats)!

IMPROVE PERFORMANCE The 2g dose of taurine found in 2 scoops of MyoBuild 4X is clinically shown to improve performance in endurance athletes. This free-form amino acid is one of the most abundant amino acids in muscle and also aids in cell volumization. Balshaw et al., 2013. Amino Acids. 44(2):555-61. SUPPORT RECOVERY AND FIGHT MUSCLE BREAKDOWN Emerging research shows the powerful phytonutrients in tart cherries can help support recovery after training through the reduction of post-workout pain, while also fighting catabolism (muscle breakdown)!
