HICA-MAX™ works by increasing protein synthesis (anabolism), and decreasing muscle protein breakdown (catabolism). Its mode of action has been suggested as an independent mTOR signal transducer, which is a “cell-signaler” for muscle protein synthesis. Leucic acid also interrupts muscle protein breakdown by activating nuclear factor kappa B and inhibiting caspase-8. It may also activate IGF-1, a growth factor that helps age-related decreases in your body’s growth hormone output.
Unlike prohormones or anabolic steroids, HICA-MAX™ activates ¬anabolic and anti-catabolic pathways without directly affecting your body’s hormonal balance. HICA-MAX™ gives you maximum muscle growth without negative side effects, and you’ll never have to cycle off of it.
