Forget Expensive Supplements! Here's A SUPER CHEAP One That Will Blow Your Gains Sky High…
It’s a fact…skinny ectomorphs have an overabundance of the “stress hormone”, cortisol.
Cortisol actually plays a useful role in our bodies but for hardgainers, its catabolic effects are a real hassle as it inhibits important protein synthesis.
That means less protein available for repair of muscle tissue…less size…and MORE frustration!
Add to this that the digestion of proteins actually burns more calories than any other nutrient and you can see why you CAN’T follow the same “protein plan” as others who can gain muscle more easily.
What’s the solution?
Try adding DIGESTIVE ENZYMES to your meals!
Now you may think that digestive enzymes (that include either pepsin, papain, or papaya) are just for little old ladies with “tummy problems”…but you’d be mistaken!
In fact, digestive enzymes help to break down nutrients from the food you eat into usable energy.
But another finding dug deeper and found that enzymes improved the absorption of amino acids and increased nitrogen retention.
In a recent clinical study, respondents who consumed digestive enzymes with their meals showed an increase in protein synthesis with free amino acid levels up by 100%…branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s) by 250%…and nitrogen retention by 32%!
In short…MUCH better support for muscle repair and growth.
And enzymes can be especially useful for hardgainers in yet one more way…
Since protein uses up more calories in digestion, enzymes can speed up the process, reducing the “thermic effect” of ingested proteins and help you better maintain a caloric surplus for weight gain!
