If you’re lifting heavy and often and you want your muscles to grow to their maximum potential, you need to protect them from catabolic forces whenever possible. That means preventing muscle breakdown! The most basic, unavoidable reality when it comes to muscle growth is that you must ensure that more amino acids are entering the muscle tissue throughout the day than are leaving it.
To achieve this delicate but crucial balance, you’ve got to be regularly making the most important amino acids available to your muscles. Defend has been formulated with all of the most anabolic and anti-catabolic amino acids required by the human body in an unbelievable tasting powdered drink mix, so you’ll never be caught short when it comes to supplying your muscles with the most potent building blocks required for their growth and repair! Defend is designed to be used throughout the day, either with meals to enhance the amino acid profile of your diet or between meals as an anti-catabolic. It also makes a perfect Intra-Workout or Post-Workout supplement (along with your protein shake) as a broader spectrum alternative to BCAAs.
Remember, Defend is designed for athletes and military personnel who want to avoid muscle breakdown and maximise their exercise recovery, strength and lean muscle mass. It is an advanced, new, full-spectrum amino acid product, which contains every amino acid required to build and repair muscle. Also, virtually all of the amino acids found in Defend are delivered in both the peptide-bonded and free forms, for a broader range of absorption and kinetics. Finally, Defend is formulated with key nutrients to enhance absorption, uptake and retention of its vital amino acid payload.
