Urso-X just might be the most significant muscle-growth enhancing compound to come along in decades. It certainly has serious scientific credentials that are sure to grow in volumes as more in-depth research is conducted. But you can reap the muscle-building rewards now!
A natural substrate found in several herbs and fruits, Urso-X works on multiple genetic signalling pathways that trigger the most potent biological activities for lean muscle growth, increased strength and accelerated fat loss. Adding Urso-X to your training program will put you on a sure-fire path for faster muscle growth, more strength, and accelerated fat loss.
Why are muscle & fitness supplements important?
Nutritional supplements support the muscle building process by providing essential ingredients with greater convenience and higher bioavailability than what you would find in your regular diet.
Proper training requires the adequate nutrients, especially protein,so that your body can repair, maintain and build muscle. Protein becomes highly important for building muscle mass and as you start to train your muscles have an increased requirement for it.
AST will continue to deliver you cutting-edge information on the proper use of exercise, nutrition, and sports supplements as an effective way to elevate the performance level of every athlete. We are committed to you the athlete and the goals you pursue.
Whether you’re male or a female, gaining more muscle should be an important goal to achieve. This fact should be independent of whether you’re new to training, have trained for quite awhile or an advanced trainer.
