Would You Exchange Fat For Muscle?
A reduced calorie diet is the typical method of increasing your body’s ability to use stored body fat as an energy source. An unwanted side effect of a low calorie regimen is you end up putting your body into a catabolic state. This means that the body’s calorie needs needed come not only from fat but also from lean muscle tissue – absolutely what any hard training bodybuilder or athlete does not want!
ALRI has a solution – what if you could utilize stored body fat for energy without utilizing muscle? Let’s go a step further – what if there was a supplement that would let you use the calories from fat to build and repair muscle without the need of a low calorie diet?
Here’s a look at some research studies that back up the effectiveness Exchange:
The Nutritional Supplement Exchange vs. Placebo provided the following summary:
Reseach Study #1: This was a blind Medical Overview 4 week Research Study by A. Human MD and Associates, using Human Test Subjects:
This research study was completed on August 31st 2012 and consisted of 14 male and female athletic test subjects ranging in age from 25-49 years and divided into 2 groups. All test subjects were required to drug-test both pre and post study. This research study was designed to be a double blind placebo study. Each test subject was given 2 capsules twice per day before meals for 4 weeks and was not held to a restricted calorie diet. The results of this study were based upon hydrostatic body composition testing.
Results: The test subjects using Exchange had, on average, a change in lean body mass of +3.23lbs, in comparison the placebo group had, on average, a change in lean body mass of .783lbs. The test subjects using Exchange realized a 413% greater increase in lean mass compared to the placebo group. The test subjects using Exchange also realized an average change in body fat mass of -5.0lbs, as compared to the placebo group, which had an average change in fat mass of +.583.
Summary: This research study establishes Exchange as a non-hormonal, all natural positive repartitioning compound. Future research studies should be required to evaluate ideal dosage levels and formula comparisons and/or delivery methods to further validate the positive effects of Exchange vs. competitor preparations.
Research Study #2: This research study was conducted on mice and performed at The University of Iowa by Dr. Christopher Adams. Researchers discovered that a natural element located in the waxy coating of apple peels had positive effects on body composition. According to Dr. Adams, the positive benefits seem to be because of an apple peel element, known as ursolic acid. This particular research project began when Dr. Adams and his colleagues researched and identified 63 genes that are impacted by fasting. As it turns out, these genes are the same in mice and people. The next step was to quantify another 29 genes that are impacted in the muscles of those who are fasting as well as those with spinal cord injuries. The third step was to evaluate 1,300 small molecules that ultimately led to ursolic acid as an element that may reduce muscle wasting.
The research team believes that the test results using mice were because of increased insulin/IGF-1 signaling in the muscles. Several additional studies back up these findings – to put these results in a more simple perspective, researchers were able to initiate a strong state of muscle gain to fat loss.
Key Benefits of Exchange:
- Reduce fat and increase lean mass - Exchange Fat for Muscle!
- Reduce the storage of body fat due to increased blood sugar levels.
- Enhance levels of glycogen, improving athletic/training performance and recovery times.
- Reduce estrogen by blocking aromatase.
- Block inflammatory cytokins, such as IL-6, and COX-2.
