The premium timed-release protein blend of ISOBOLIC® provides unrivaled quality for all-day anabolic effects. Each serving contains 25 grams of the cleanest protein commercially available including 100% whey protein isolate, milk protein isolate, micellar casein, and ultra-high grade whey protein concentrate, all balanced in the perfect ratio. It also contains 12 grams of Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) and grams of BCAAs to help you build more muscle. With both rapid and sustained-release protein sources, ISOBOLIC® is the perfect protein for elite level quality and all-day muscle growth.
Anabolic State also contains HICA which stands for alpha-hydroxyisocaproic acid, a name you’ll never remember. This is just a metabolite of the BCAA Leucine that is supposed to support anabolism during intense workouts when muscle gycogen depletes. A study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found a significant increase in lean body mass in a group of male soccer players during 4 weeks of resistance training and HICA supplementation. The lean mass gains were dominant in the lower body, and delayed muscle soreness was decreased as well. I got excited when I read this study until I found out that the researchers that conducted the study actually own the patent to HICA so ulterior motives may have been in place which undermine the results to a degree.
