Many top researchers believe that intense exercise causes a severe rise in cortisol levels. This increase in cortisol, a powerful catabolic hormone, can impede muscle growth. Elevated cortisol breaks down muscle and blocks protein synthesis while slowing glucose utilization. Cort-Bloc suppresses cortisol production and prevents muscle- tissue cannibalization. Cort-Bloc is the first supplement medically proven to suppress workout- related cortisol. Lowered cortisol levels enable greater amino acid uptake for enhanced nitrogen retention, accelerated glucose utilization/glycogen synthesis, and increased protein synthesis. In recent clinical studies when phosphatidylserine (herein referred to as PS), the primary active ingredient found in Cort-Bloc, was administered to strength athletes, cortisol levels were reduced by almost 30%! This can result in more productive workouts and growth.
In one study PS promoted a marked reversal of many symptoms associated with depression. PS also stimulated dramatic improvements in memory and retention of information. PS is a natural substance found in cell membranes in the brain, specifically in the cerebral cortex neuronal membrane. It can act as an antioxidant and in doing so may enhance longevity. Cort Bloc Benefits:
Highly effective cortisol antagonist Enhances nitrogen retention
