by Team NCNR | June 21, 2016 Views :

Grenade has designed Muscle Machine® Lean as a cutting-edge, All-in-One Muscle Builder, with a ratio of 2:1 of Protein: Carbohydrate and added fat loss compounds, muscle gain and hormone boosters to scientifically support growth and maintenance of muscle mass and contribute to protein synthesis. It does not have high-glycemic (high GI) carbs and excess calories which can lead to retention of excess body fat.
In today’s blog, NCNR experts give their review of this unique muscle builder formula.

Label Review:
To start off, let’s look at the supplement facts label of Grenade Muscle Machine® Lean

Added fat loss ingredients and testosterone boosters gives this product an edge over the other muscle builders.

If you have achieved your weight gain goal and are now looking to add lean muscle mass, then Muscle Machine® Lean is an ideal supplement to opt for. Although most muscle builders include anabolic aminos to support muscle building and lean mass maintenance, added fat loss ingredients and testosterone boosters give this product an edge over the other muscle builders.

Ingredients Review:

  • High quality Multi-Sourced Protein
Each serving contains 40 grams of sustained protein matrix sourced only from milk. These include fast-absorbing whey concentrate and isolate, along with slow- absorbing milk protein concentrate (a rich source of slow-release micellar casein). All of these protein sources have a high BV (Biological Value- A measure of how well a protein is absorbed and utilized by your body for muscle building).

The fast and slow release combination of protein provides a sustained amino acid supply which supports recovery long after you have finished your workout. It helps maintain a positive protein balance, which is what is required to see significant muscle gain.

With whey as its primary source of protein, each serving also provides you with 8.7 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs, which act as an anabolic support.

  • Carbohydrate source

MuscleMachine® Lean features a ‘Tri-Source' low-impact, sustained-release natural carbohydrate blend of ModCarb™, Tapioca starch and Oat meal. Of these three sources, tapioca and oats are source of complex carbs and have lesser impact on insulin levels compared to simpler carbs such as dextrose or fructose.

This leaves ModCarb™. What is it? How is it better? Let’s discuss it further.

ModCarb™ is a patented low-GI carb source. It is a blend of 5 super grains: oat bran, buckwheat, amaranth, millet and quinoa; which make it a source of complex carbohydrates, amino acids, dietary fibre and essential fatty acids.

It is reported that ModCarb™ doesn’t spike blood sugar levels, contains over twice the fibre content and no added sugar. In fact, it is seen to be a better carb source in comparison to maltodextrin. Muscle Machine® Lean definitely includes one of the best premium carbohydrate sources which (at 19.4 g per serving) are just enough to support muscle gain and avoid any chances of fat gain.

  • Key Essential fatty acids
Grenade Muscle Machine® Lean contains High-yielding MCTs, coconut oil and sunflower oil as well as EFA’s contributed by ModCarb™. Latest research shows that just a perfect protein and carb combination is not sufficient for mass gains, and proves that eating the right fats can also have profound effects. Healthy fats like Coconut oil powder and MCT oil Powder are most quickly and efficiently absorbed and more rapidly used as fuel by the body versus typical fats.

ModCarb™ is a patented low GI carb source. It is a blend of 5 super grains: oat bran, buckwheat, amaranth, millet and quinoa.

Premium key Compounds
Fat loss Support:
Green Tea Extract, Chromium Picolinate and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), each have their own specific mechanism for promoting fat loss and preventing fat gain. Green tea is a well-studied fat burning agent, whereas CLA is known to support fat loss while preserving lean mass. Chromium Picolinate is an insulin sensitizer that ensures optimal delivery of nutrients to muscle for growth and repair.

Anabolic and Anti-catabolic amino acids: Taurine, Glutamine peptides and Hydroxy methyl butyrate (HMB) have been included to provide additional anabolic effect and improve muscle recovery. These three amino acids together help to reduce muscle damage, often associated with intense training.

Hormone support: Features a combination of Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B6. Zinc is required for optimization of testosterone levels, which is the key hormone that is known to influence muscle gains. Zinc deficiency has been associated with lower testosterone levels. A combination of these three minerals is said to support normal testosterone levels.

NCNR Conclusion:
Grenade Muscle Machine® Lean looks like a promising muscle builder. What we especially like about this product is the higher protein content and the kick-ass new ingredient ModCarb™. Of course, the added fat loss and testosterone booster ingredients provide a unique edge to this formulation. As it is creatine-free, it gives you the flexibility to combine it with a stand-alone creatine supplement at full doses. Give it a try and let us know your views about this product.
