HOW CLEAR MUSCLE Works
Once in the muscle, the compound in CLEAR MUSCLE™ activates the anabolic (musclebuilding) process in the muscle called the “p70S6k/mTOR” pathway. This is the universal pathway that must be activated for a muscle to build itself up. The compound also works on a separate pathway – the ubiquitin-proteosome-proteolytic pathway (UPPP), helping to shut down its activity. Normally, when the UPPP is activated, your muscle is broken down (catabolism). But because the compound shuts down (inhibits) the UPPP, muscle breakdown is decreased. So in short, every dose of CLEAR MUSCLE™ amps up your protein synthesis in the muscle while also decreasing muscle breakdown, putting you in the perfect state to build more muscle.
What does it do?
1. Increases muscle growth
2. Increases strength
3. Decreases muscle protein breakdown
4. Improves recovery time
How does it work?
1. Activates the anabolic (musclebuilding) pathway called mTOR, which increases muscle protein synthesis.
2. Acts as an anti-catabolic agent by helping to shut down the UPP pathway, which works to break down muscle tissue.
Can high school kids take Clear Muscle?
We do not recommend that anyone under 18 years of age take the product.
Is it safe for women?
This product is perfectly safe for women.
Does the dosage change based on the person’s weight?
We currently do not recommend different dosages for individual bodyweight. Participants in the study all took the same amount of BetaTor, despite differences in bodyweight.
How much protein do I need to consume daily to see the 16.3 lbs. of muscle growth?
Our recommendation is in line with that of the ISSN (International Society of Sports Nutrition). We recommend 1.4 to 2 grams of protein per kilogram of bodyweight, which is roughly a 1 gram per 1 pound of bodyweight.
Will I really gain 16 lbs. of muscle?
The subjects in the study were extremely committed to their training, eating a very strict diet and putting themselves through extreme rigorous training. If you want to see the kind of gains made in the study, you must be willing to dedicate yourself to your training and really push yourself in the gym while following the exact training protocol of the athletes in the study. You will still experience the amazing benefits of Clear Muscle if you are using a more moderate training approach, however, you may not experience the same type of extreme results demonstrated in the study.
Did all subjects in the study gain 16 lbs. of muscle?
This number was the average amount of muscle that subjects in the study gained.
How are the claims similar to current products on the market, such as Pro Supps L-Leucine Matrix 250 and iSatori Bio Grow?
Clear Muscle™ contains a highly researched compound called BetaTOR, which is delivered in a convenient pill that is exclusive to MuscleTech. While other companies may claim that their products increase protein synthesis and muscle growth, none of them have scientific studies demonstrating results as significant as seen with Clear Muscle™. The clinical study backing Clear Muscle™ has produced greater muscle growth than any other scientifically studied ingredient in the history of sports nutrition.
What is the difference between HMB and BetaTOR?
BetaTOR is a uniquely constructed free acid form of HMB. Regular HMB is bound in a calcium salt that is more difficult to break down and absorb. BetaTOR does not need to be broken down, and is therefore quickly absorbed into the bloodstream; it raises levels of HMB in the blood by 97% more than regular HMB.
How is Clear Muscle™ different from leucine?
While both stimulate protein synthesis, Clear Muscle™ does not raise insulin levels, while leucine does. In addition to this, Clear Muscle™ also triggers other anti-catabolic pathways that leucine does not.
Do I need to take any other supplements with Clear Muscle to get the same results demonstrated in the study?
The subjects in the study did not take any additional supplements other than the main ingredient in Clear Muscle. Therefore, any musclebuilding effects can only be attributed to the key ingredient in Clear Muscle – BetaTOR. However, one can surely combine it with other MuscleTech products to create an excellent overall musclebuilding stack.
Do I need to follow any specific diet while taking Clear Muscle to optimize results?
The subjects in the study followed a controlled diet that was designed and monitored by a registered dietitian. Two weeks prior to and throughout the study, participants were placed on a diet consisting of 25% protein, 50% carbohydrates, and 25% fat. If you wish to maximize the potential of Clear Muscle, you may want to follow a similar macronutrient breakdown.
Clear Muscle Directions:
Take 1 serving (2 capsules), in the morning, mid-afternoon, and evening. On workout days, take 1 of these servings 30 minutes before training. Do not exceed 3 servings (6 capsules) in a 24-hour period. To maximize your results, use the exact same training protocol as the subjects in the 12-week study.
