Muscle Martini is a post-workout amino acid drink designed to provide you with the building blocks of muscle that you need without all the extra calories associated with traditional protein drinks. Muscle Martini comes in three flavors: mixed berry candy, peach mango candy, and watermelon candy. In addition to the amino acids, Muscle Martini also contains several plant herbs and extracts that are designed to suppress the production of cortisol by your body.
Muscle Martini Scientific Backing
For a post workout drink, Muscle Martini does provide a generous amount of protein, totaling 12.2 grams, per 2 scoop serving. All the amino acids that Muscle Martini provides fall into the "essential" amino acid category. This means these amino acids cannot be synthesized from other amino acids in your body. These amino acids must be consumed through your diet in order for them to be present in large enough amounts for muscle repair and growth as well.
Furthermore, Muscle Martini provides a proportionally greater amount of the amino acids isoleucine, leucine, and valine. These three amino acids are often classed as "branched chain amino acids" which are sometimes broken down for energy production during high intensity, long duration exercises. By replacing these with Muscle Martini, you can stem the loss of muscle mass associated with long endurance training.
The other side of Muscle Martini is its "anti-catabolic" blend of herbs and extracts. Goji berries have been show to be a "super food" meaning that it contains a large number of powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants help to keep your body feeling healthy by cleaning up free radicals created through metabolic activity. It is believed that keep your body free of free radicals, which can cause serious harm to DNA in cells, will keep your cortisol levels down because your body won't feel as stressed. This is good because cortisol production causes your body to breakdown muscles and fats for energy. While some cortisol is good, especially during exercise, if present in large enough amounts it can cause your body to rely more on proteins for energy instead of fats and cause muscle loss. Many of the other ingredients in the herbal blend also have strong antioxidative capabilities and support cortisol suppression from that angle as well.
