Want to get MORE MUSCLE GROWTH with LESS BODY FAT?
Now you can, with our Ultimate STEROID-FREE Muscle Growth Stimulator/Lean Muscle Optimizer combo :
THE HICA MAX/URSOLIC ACID STACK
When you combine LABRADA’s HICA MAX™ with Ursolic Acid you have what may simply be the most powerful non-hormonal, muscle stimulating, fat loss enhancing stack available. In this article you will find out WHY this is the case….
And make sure that you read this until the end so that you can take advantage of our super special, limited time introductory offer!
What Is HICA MAX?
HICA-MAX™ is a powerful, non-hormonal, natural stimulator of muscle growth. Its chewables contain 100% pharmaceutical-grade leucic acid, also known as alpha-hydroxy-isocaproic acid (HICA) – a natural metabolite of the branched chain amino acid, leucine.
It has been shown to be more powerful than even HMB (another leucine metabolite known for its powerful effects on muscle preservation.) Leucine is considered as the most anabolic Branched Chain Amino Acid and its HICA metabolite is what is thought to be responsible for Leucine’s anabolic effects. But it is estimated that you’d have to consume almost 100 grams of leucine to get one gram of HICA! By taking a concentrated dosage of HICA it you’ll most likely get much better results than by just consuming a higher dose of leucine.
By taking HICA you can expect to get the following benefits:
- Accelerated workout recovery so you can train more often and thus stimulate more muscle mass gains.
- Reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), allowing you to train harder and to push the envelope at the gym resulting in explosive gains in muscle and strength.
How Does It Work?
HICA-MAX™ works by 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.
What Is URSOLIC ACID?
Ursolic acid is a newly discovered substance, which is a component of apple peels. Also known as urson, prunol, micromerol, and malol, is a pentacyclic triterpenoid compound which naturally occurs in a large number of vegetarian foods, medicinal herbs, and other plants, including apples and rosemary.
Ursolic acid has generated a lot of scientific interest lately, because it has been found to affect molecular pathways that could prevent muscle loss and weakness, promote fat loss, and have a beneficial effect on multiple chronic diseases.
By taking Ursolic Acid you can expect to get the following benefits:
- Protects muscle tissue during a restricted calorie diet.
- Increases fat burning significantly.
- Improved Health: Use of Ursolic Acid has shown improved blood lipid profiles, better blood glucose control, cardio protective properties, and improved joint and bone health.
How Does It Work?
The anti-catabolic effect (muscle protection properties) of ursolic acid was recently discovered in a study that looked at what happens to gene activity in muscles during catabolic situations like fasting. It was found that fasting in both people and mice changes gene expression in many genes. These gene expression changes were then compared to those seen in muscle fibers that had been exposed to a wide array of bioactive molecules.
Of all the tested bioactive molecules, ursolic acid turned out to be a unique substance that induced a gene expression pattern that counteracted the catabolic (muscle destroying) effects of fasting.
Next, ursolic acid was given to fasted mice, and found to protect against muscle atrophy. When ursolic acid was added to the food of normal (non-fasted) mice for five weeks, their muscles grew. These effects were mediated by enhanced insulin signaling in muscle and counteracting of the gene expression pattern causing muscle atrophy (muscle loss).
In the same study, it was further shown that mice given ursolic acid also became leaner and had lower blood levels of glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides.
Another study specifically evaluated ursolic acid for its effects on blood glucose, lipids, and abdominal fat deposition in mice fed a high-fat diet. The study suggested that ursolic acid induced anti-obesity effects. Ursolic acid also has been shown to increase liberation of fatty acids from body fat stores, and inhibit fat absorption by reducing the activity of pancreatic lipase (an enzyme that is necessary for fat absorption). Thus, ursolic acid can help to fight off excess body fat via several complementary mechanisms.
What Happens When You Combine HICA MAX and Ursolic Acid?
When you combine LABRADA’s HICA MAX™ with Ursolic Acid you have what may simply be the most powerful non-hormonal, muscle stimulating, fat loss enhancing stack available. If you are a physique competitor getting ready for a competition, or someone who just wants to get leaner and harder, you cannot afford to NOT use this stack as part of your diet and training program!
Note: If you need help with your diet and training please check Labrada’s Goals pages (www.labrada.com/goals) for diet information and our forum for muscle building training routines.
As these are non-hormone containing products there are no known side effects associated with them.
How to Use?
Simple. Take 3 capsules of Ursolic Acid with 3 of your meals and take 3 chewable tablets of HICA MAX before training. If you are over 150-lbs, then you will need to take 4 chewable HICA MAX tablets. During off days, you can take 1 chewable HICA MAX tablet with each of your Ursolic Acid doses.
Do You Cycle This Stack?
There is no need to cycle this stack and you can use it constantly for great continuous effects.
This is the shocking part. This stack will not “break the bank” because we have a limited time special offer for you:
