WHAT IS VELOSITOL?

Velositol® is a patented ingredient that, when used with protein is designed to accelerate and boost muscle protein synthesis (MPS), a key to enhanced muscle growth, lean body mass, and quicker muscle recovery. Velositol also enhances insulinogenic function, which increases amino acid uptake providing fuel for working muscles, so you get the most out of your workout, even after your workout.

HOW DOES VELOSITOL WORK?

Velositol is a patented combination of amylopectin and chromium that is designed to work as a perfect partner to protein. Velositol’s highly soluble amylopectin stimulates insulin’s safe and controlled release, while chromium enhances insulin function and increases muscle cells’ sensitivity to it. Together, these nutrients enhance insulin’s ability to transport amino acids into muscle cells where they supply the nutrients needed for MPS.

 

What is MPS? Muscle protein synthesis (MPS) is the process that creates muscle growth and recovery. A single dose of Velositol added to protein is clinically shown to increase MPS significantly more than protein and exercise alone1. By increasing muscle protein synthesis, Velositol improves body composition and the body's ability to repair muscle damage due to exercise, which speeds up recovery.

 

The power of Velositol is not limited to whey protein alone. Velositol has also been shown to be effective in enhancing MPS with both plant proteins and BCAAs2.
