What is Mastodon?
Mastodon by Scitec Nutrition is a supplement based on Phosphatidic Acid, a substance oriented to stimulate the hypertrophic mTOR pathway for muscle growth.
Phosphatidic acid is a phospholipid, i.e. a type of diglyceride fat with a phosphate group attached to the glycerol backbone. Phospholipids are an important component of the cell membrane structure, at the same time as exerting influence on a number of mechanisms of cellular metabolism.
In relation to muscle mass gains, athletes want products that will help them improve this ability, and thus complete the circle:
workout Nutrition Rest
Mastodon will intervene precisely in the nutrition section, providing an element that is capable of stimulating the synthesis of proteins, starting from a correct stimulus with training, and of course, within a planned rest and recovery phase..
How does Phosphatidic Acid work?
The phosphatidic acid will act as a marker at the cellular level, and will be responsible for activating the mTOR pathway. This physiological mechanism is in charge of setting in motion the processes and elements related to protein synthesis.
Precisely when we carry out an activity under tension, that is, when we are subjecting our muscle mass to a mechanical stress through loads, is where we perform concentric and eccentric movements. According to recent research, the eccentric movement causes a series of reactions, from the mechanical movement, at the cellular level: a chemical called phosphatidic acid is released, which promotes the synthesis of proteins, thanks to the activation of mTOR. This metabolic pathway will immediately cause changes related to muscle growth: the higher concentration of phosphatidic acid, the greater the effect on the synthesis of intracellular protein and therefore greater gain of muscle mass.
In this sense we can see the importance of paying special attention, both to the actual lifting phase (concentric) and the eccentric one.
Benefits of Mastodon
The phosphatidic acid that Mastodon supplies will amplify the effects on the muscle growth produced by your workout
According to certain studies (Study 1, Study 2), that included trained subjects, who underwent an intense exercise program, and that were supplemented with 750mg of phosphatidic acid daily, the following results were observed:
- Increase in cross-section of muscle fiber, and increase in lean mass
- Increase in muscle strength, both upper and lower limbs
- Body fat loss compared to placebo group
Who can benefit from Mastodon?
Mastodon emerges as a new supplement resulting from research on the functioning of the hypertrophic pathway. Therefore, its objective will be totally related to those people who seek to increase their muscle mass, and as we have seen, do it efficiently, with the least possible amount of fat, and of course, maintaining a correct sports and nutrition program.
