The Hidden Power of L-Carnitine Supplementation in Enhancing Testosterone Function
Here's a potent 1-2-3 punch that can lead to huge muscle growth when taken immediately after a workout.
With so much emphasis placed on pre-workout supplementation, most people mail in their post-workout routine by taking the wrong products — or even worse, not taking anything after a hard training session.
Researchers from my alma mater University of Connecticut (Storrs) recently published a scientific paper showing that skimping on your post-workout supps is a big mistake; you could be leaving major gains on the table!
The great thing about the study is that it pinpoints three specific supplements that can boost your testosterone levels to promote gains in lean muscle mass and strength and even help with fat loss. Not to mention, the three supplements are ones I've been touting for years and are present in JYM products.
The first ingredient is l-carnitine.
The UConn researchers reported that when subjects supplemented with 2 grams of l-carnitine per day for three weeks, they had significantly increased resting levels of androgen receptors in their muscle cells. Testosterone binds to androgen receptors in the muscle cells to instigate key muscle growth processes, so the more androgen receptors you have, the more testosterone your body is likely to produce.
Post JYM BCAAs+ Recovery Matrix provides the exact dose in the study — 2 grams — in every serving (one scoop), as Carnipure® L-carnitine L-tartrate.
The researchers also found that when subjects had a protein and carbohydrate shake immediately after workouts, it further increased the number of androgen receptors — significantly higher than drinking plain water.
In the above video, I cover the UConn study in further detail.
To underscore the importance of these findings, the one time of day when you can significantly boost testosterone (other than first thing in the morning) is during workouts — so increasing androgen receptors right after training is hugely important for results.
What to do based on the UConn researchers' findings is very simple.
Take these three products immediately after every workout:
- 1 scoop of Post JYM BCAAs+ Recovery Matrix
- 1 scoop Post JYM Fast-Digesting Carb (mix both Post JYM products together in water)
- 1-2 scoops of Pro JYM (drink the Post JYM combo separate from the Pro JYM)
This simple three-product attack can make a big difference in your results!
