MASTODON - 90 caps
Mastodon by Scitec Nutrition is a supplement made from Phosphatidic Acid a substance that will stimulate the mTOR pathway for muscle growth.
Phosphatidic acid is a phospholipid, that is, it is a type of diglyceride fat with a phosphate group bound to the main glycerol chain. Phospholipids are an important component of the cell membrane and they are involved in a series of cell metabolism mechanisms.
Regarding muscle mass gains, athletes want products that will help them improve in this aspect to complete the cycle:
Training + Nutrition + Recovery
Mastodon will be placed on the Nutrition section, since it is a product that stimulates the protein synthesis after a previous training stimulus and, of course, within a planned recovery and rest phase.
Phosphatidic acid will signal and activate the mTOR pathway. This physiological mechanism is in charge of setting the protein synthesis into motion.
This happens when we work under pressure, that is, when we subject our muscle mass to a mechanical effort with weights, performing concentric and eccentric movements. According to recent studies, the eccentric movements trigger a series of reactions in the cells: it releases a chemical substance called phosphatidic acid, which stimulates the protein synthesis thanks to the mTOR pathway. This metabolic pathway will immediately trigger changes in muscle growth: a higher concentration of phosphatidic acid will have a stronger effect on the intracellular protein synthesis and, therefore, more muscle gains.
This is a good way of seeing the importance of the concentric phase (lifting) as well as the eccentric phase.
The phosphatidic acid from Mastodon will enhance the effects of muscle growth from the workout
- It increased the muscle fiber transversal section and the lean mass
- It increased the muscle mass, both in the upper and lower body
- They lost fat loss when compared to the placebo group
Mastodon os a new supplement born from the research about the functioning of the hypertrophy pathway. Therefore, its objective will always be related to those who want to increase their muscle mass, as we have previously seen, with the lowest amount of fat and always combined with a proper training routine and diet.
