- Helps to Prevent Muscle Breakdown
- Helps to Maximise Recovery
- Helps to Maximise Strength and Lean Muscle Mass
- Can be used during or post workout
Defend by Grenade has been designed to help individuals avoid muscle breakdown and maximise their exercise recovery, strength and lean muscle mass.
Defend has been formulated using all of the most anabolic and anti-catabolic amino acids required by the human body and is designed to be used throughout the day, either with meals to enhance the amino acid profile of your diet or between meals as an anticatabolic. It also makes a perfect Intra-Workout or Post-Workout supplement (along with your protein shake) as a broader spectrum alternative to BCAAs. virtually all of the amino acids found in Defend are delivered in both the peptide-bonded and free forms, for a broader range of absorption and kinetics. Finally, Defend is formulated with key nutrients to enhance absorption, uptake and retention of its vital amino acid payload.
Several key, powerful and cutting-edge ingredients have been added to Defend, including:
probably the single most important amino acid for bodybuilders and strength and power athletes. This BCAA, even at modest levels, can literally ”turn on” muscle-building activity. No other single amino acid is known to do this to any significant extent on its own. Also, studies suggest that adding additional leucine to Protein can increase the magnitude of protein synthesis (the process that builds muscle). Defend contains both peptide-bound and free form leucine.
a patented combination of Astragalus and Panax Notoginseng has been added to Defend to support optimum absorption. Impressive results have been obtained using this ingredient from scientific studies into its activity in Human intestinal Caco-2 cells, which have the responsibility for nutrient absorption from the gut. L-Citrulline DL-Malate Of all of the amino acids, citrulline has been found to increase nitric oxide and blood flow the most, more than arginine and other amino acids.
High nitric oxide levels and improved blood flow have been associated with increased weight training performance, increased muscle protein synthesis, increased Protein content in muscle, reduced fatigue, increased energy production and increased creatine phosphate production.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha lipoic acid has been demonstrated in scientific studies to have a positive impact on insulin function in the body and effects on supporting creatine uptake and retention in the muscle cells.
Glutamine peptides have long been recognised as a stable form of glutamine by bodybuilders and other strength athletes who use them for their purported cell-volumising and anticatabolic effect synthesis, increased protein content in muscle, reduced fatigue, increased energy production and increased creatine phosphate production.
