Do you know the answer to this equation? Protein + Amino Acids + Betaine + Beta-Alanine + Creatine = ?
The answer: Nitro-Factor building blocks.
The Importance of Nitrogen
Nitrogen is a primary component of protein. The body’s use of protein can be determined by comparing the amount of nitrogen entering the body in food protein with the nitrogen lost from the body in feces and urine1
Nitrogen is important because you must be in a positive nitrogen balance to maximize muscle protein synthesis and performance. Therefore the more nitrogen your product has, the better your chances are to stay in a muscle building state.
Ingredients including protein, creatine, amino acids, betaine and beta alanine boost total nitrogen uptake and amplify the power of the formula. The human body is built and rebuilt everyday from and by proteins.
