Anabolic, anti-catabolic, anti-proteolytic, protein-sparing... These are terms that describe the state of protein affairs in muscle. The bodybuilding community likes to define anabolic compounds as those which increase amino acid shuttling into muscle and increase protein synthesis. Likewise, anti-catabolic, or antiproteolytic (the more specifically correct term) compounds are defined as those which decrease amino acid shuttling out of muscle (also called protein-sparing). Irrespective of whether amino acids are being gained within muscle due to an increase in the influx of amino acids and enhanced protein synthesis, or due to the conservation of amino acids already within muscle, or both, the resulting intramuscular environment is anabolic. This is a really good thing for bodybuilders.
Although most bodybuilding supplements really don't do jack, a few bodybuilding supplements may actually help increase the uptake of amino acids into muscle, and a few other supplements may actually help to conserve amino acids already within muscle. Even better yet, there are a very few supplements that contain formulations of ingredients that do both--they are anabolic and anti-proteolytic, which means even more muscle protein. One of those very few supplements is Dianabol®- a Hi-Tech Muscle & Strength supplement that contains a whirlwind of both anabolic and anti-proteolytic compounds. This product is all about protein...getting it, saving it, and using it to build rock-hard muscle. The active compounds in Dianabol® signal muscles to snatch up more amino acids from the blood and then use them to create muscle protein at a faster rate through increased protein synthesis. The compounds in Dianabol® also tell muscles to hang on to amino acids already within muscle by decreasing muscle-wasting activities within the muscle, creating a protein-sparing metabolism, and thus maintaining an anabolic state during times when normal protein breakdown occurs. In essence, Dianabol® helps keep hard-earned muscle intact.
The Dianabol® formulation contains Agonadra racemosa (Belizean man vine)-80% extract standardized for phenylethanoid glycosides, an exceptionally anti-proteolytic compound just recently introduced by Hi-Tech into the sports nutrition arena; the testosterone support herb Tribulus terrestris- 90% extract standardized for steroidal saponins; the Russian herbal extract 25R, spirostan-5a-diol-6-one-3-one (ecdybolin) with a 33:1 anabolic/androgenic ratio, which has been used by Russian Olympic athletes since the late 1970s; the powerful anabolic potentiator dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) decanoate; phytosterol- 90% extract standardized for beta-sitosterol, campesterol, stigmasterol, and brassicasterol; Belizean wild yam; Ribonucleic Acid Complex 3™ (ribosomal RNA, transfer RNA, messenger RNA); 7-keto DHEA; Vanadyl sulfate ethyl ester; Smilagenin (royal jelly), a group of additional, non-steroidal Russian compounds called dicyclopentanone; and naringen and 6,7- dihydroxybergamottin (Hi-Tech's Extend-Rx™ Delivery System), which protect the other active components for safe delivery to target cells. That's a line-up you won't find anywhere.
