5% Nutrition Freak Show
Isn't it amazing how quickly carbs became the "enemy"? The truth is, if you're hunting gains, you need quality carbs to help you build maximum muscle. After all, carbs are the preferred fuel source of the body. That's the energy your muscles use to power you through your workouts. The thing is, too many carbs and you risk the excess being stored as fat. The question is, how can you eat the carbs you need without fear of creating excess fat storage?
What if you could use a product that could utilize those excess carbs for muscle growth and glycogen replenishment instead of fat storage? Now you can, thanks to Rich Piana 5% Nutrition and the new Freak Show®. Leave it to 5% Nutrition to create an innovative formula that mimics the power of insulin without the downside. You know 5% Nutrition, so you can expect an epic, overdosed product using only the most effective ingredients and designed to make use of and control those extra carbs!
The key to what happens in the body when you eat a lot of carbs lies in the body's own hormones. Insulin is one of the body's primary anabolic hormones and some will say it's the most powerful – yes, even more, powerful than testosterone. That may be, but insulin is like a double-edged sword – it can cut both ways. Despite its anabolic power, eat too many carbs throughout the day, especially simple carbs, and the result will be insulin spikes - which means fat gain. That's not the scenario we want!
Ah, but what about anabolic power! Insulin controls how the cells in your body absorb and utilize nutrients, such as carbs and protein. It also has a strong role in the process of protein synthesis. When you eat carbs, they not only help the process of muscle growth, they also pull water into your muscles which helps create that full as f*ck look every bodybuilder wants to see! So, carbs themselves are not the problem it's how insulin is produced and consumed in your body when you eat too many carbs which is the core of the issue.
