Introducing MPA Cortisolve
Anyone involved in the fitness industry for any length of time will be familiar with competitors and athletes that fall into the trap of overtraining and overreaching. This phenomenon is widespread among people who are following an extreme calorie restricted diet, carrying out excessive resistance training and endless cardio sessions.
When athletes fall into this perpetual trap they inevitably will have high cortisol and ACTH (adrenocorticotropin hormone) levels which put the brakes on fat loss, muscle gain, and increases the chance of catabolizing lean body mass.
Many of you will be familiar with the term ‘metabolic damage’ which seems to be a hot topic lately. Metabolic damage is commonly used in reference towards some female Bikini competitors who have suffered months of chicken and water and hours of cardio. These competitors are surely malnourished and overtrained to the max, so you can only imagine how skewed their hormonal profile might be.
Before I get to the finer point of what Cortisolve is all about, I would like to share some interesting empirical data using a mega-dosed protocol. This data has been collected and observed by the creator of Cortisolve – Matt Porter.
Matt is the former Marketing Director of Primordial Performance and also had responsibility for product testing with athletes, beta-testing new products, and monitoring customer feedback.
Primordial created a product which contained the same ingredient used in MPA CortiSolve -PhosphatidylSerine (PS). Matt received an email one day from a local Figure athlete raving about the product and what it had done for her and several of her female teammates. After she and several others had plateaued in their fat-loss goals, they implemented 800 mg per day of the PS supplement. After 10-14 days they all universally saw a reduction in waist girth, and had the calliper measurements to prove it! It was clear that they must have been overly trained and their adrenals were extremely exhausted. This explained why the clinical dose of PS was able to work its magic and reduce their elevated cortisol levels to an optimal range.
I hate to say that this product could mask a less than optimal diet, but it surely could override some extremely low-calorie nutrition plans and make magic happen. Matt has also incorporated PS with a number of athletes using an aggressively dosed protocol which resulted in a reduction in body weight within 4-7 days.
Although phosphatidylSerine is nothing new, people have been getting short-changed due to very low dosed products. Most PS supplements are dosed in 100 mg capsules, which means you would need to take 8 capsules per day to get just one serving of MPA CortiSolve (800 mg).
MPA CortiSolve uses the highest quality phosphatidylSerine that is registered and trademarked by ChemiNutra. MPA only use the very best ingredients.
What is MPA CortiSolve?
MPA CortiSolve is a naturally occurring phospholipid, designed to minimise the increase in cortisol post-exercise while optimising the testosterone-to-cortisol ratio.
It is marketed as a cortisol optimiser due to its ability to optimise beneficial hormones such as testosterone while preventing the unwanted spike in cortisol associated with exercise so you can begin making progress towards building a harder, more muscular physique.
CortiSolve comes in a delicious chocolate cocoa flavour that’s sweetened naturally with stevia & lohan. Due to the texture and natural flavouring of the raw ingredients, it can be directly spooned into your mouth or mixed into your favourite beverage or yoghurt. Each scoop includes 800mg of PS which is the heftiest dose you’ll find on the market.
Various studies have shown that 750-800 mgs mitigates excessive cortisol post strenuous exercise, improves exercise capacity and reduces muscle soreness. Through anecdotal experience, and trials carried out with Matt’s athletes, it appears that the potent dose of 600-800 mg taken pre-training is ideal for hard training athletes in their plight to optimise cortisol response.
How does MPA CortiSolve work?
MPA CortiSolve works by supplying the body with vital phospholipids and neurotransmitters which reduce the need for cortisol following strenuous physical or mental activity and allows for a higher testosterone-to-cortisol ratio.
Optimal cortisol output and testosterone levels help promote increased muscle growth, enhanced recovery increased fat loss.
How does MPA CortiSolve Support Testosterone production?
The active ingredient in Cortisolve – phosphatidylserine (PS) prevents exercise-induced cortisol spike and is a vital nutrient which supports testicular function and testosterone production.
A recent study examined the effects of 10 days of 600mg/day PS supplementation on testosterone and cortisol during and after exercise. The researchers found that PS supplementation increased testosterone 78% over the placebo group, while completely blunting the cortisol response to exercise. When analysed for testosterone to cortisol (T:C) ratio and compared to placebo, the PS group had a 3,354% higher T:C!
In another human study, hormone levels were examined during two weeks of intense weight training. The group receiving the 800 mg of PS had higher testosterone levels and lower cortisol levels, compared to the group receiving the placebo. Another study showed that 800 mg of PS reduced cortisol levels 30% (compared to the placebo group) after intense cycling exercise. (21)
It’s been suggested that PS supplementation minimises cortisol secretion by providing the necessary phospholipids required for cellular membrane structure and regulatory functions, thus reducing the requirement for bodily breakdown and nutrient displacement.
Research also indicated that PS supports testosterone production by increasing the testes sensitivity to luteinizing hormone (LH) and increases testicular steroidogenesis – the creation of testosterone.
In other words, MPA CortiSolve creates an optimal environment for testosterone synthesis in the testes by mitigating the damaging effects caused by cortisol, supplying the testes with the necessary phospholipids for testicular function.
