How can Intra Edg3 help me get rid of fat and build muscle?

Intra Edg3 may help your body lose fat by building lean muscle. The BCAA’s and Glutamine in Intra Edg3 can help to build lean muscle, and muscle burns nearly twice the calories as fat. Use the low-calorie drink Intra Edg3 to help build lean muscle and make your body a more efficient fat burning machine. Sip it on your non workout days throughout the day. Take it for muscle-building, fat burning, recovery and strength. Intra Edg3 contains more than 7 grams of BCAAs per serving to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, plus 2.5 grams of L-Glutamine to promote recovery and 1.2 grams of Citrulline to improve blood flow.

What Are BCAAs?

BCAAs are branched chain amino acids that consist of three essential amino acids comprising nearly 1/3 of skeletal muscle in the body and play a major role in protein synthesis. Why are they essential? They are essential because the body cannot produce them and must get them from an outside source. BCAAs are metabolized in the muscles, have potent anabolic and tissue sparing qualities, decrease recovery time, and increase rate at which lean body mass is gained. Plus, they yield metabolic by-products that boost energy production. The 3 essential amino acids are L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine. L-Leucine slows the breakdown of muscles tissue, increases protein synthesis and used to form sterols. What are Sterols? They are used by the body to manufacture hormones and cell membranes. They support increased muscle, density, recovery and boost performance. L-Isoleucine, in combination with the other two BCAAs, promotes muscle recovery after physical activity. On its own, it’s needed for the formation of hemoglobin in the blood. In addition, L-Isoleucine assists with regulation of blood sugar and energy levels. L-Valine has a stimulating effect and is needed for muscle metabolism, repair and growth. Maintaining the nitrogen balance in body, L-Valine can be used as an energy source in the muscles and can preserve the use of glucose.


Why twice as much Leucine as the other two? Leucine has a greater stimulatory effect on protein synthesis far more than any other amino acid. The higher concentrations signal the body’s protein regulator that there is enough protein to synthesize new skeletal muscle protein. The 2:1:1 ratio is what exists in nature and has been validated by many peer-reviewed studies.

What is L-Glutamine?

L-Glutamine is referred to as a “conditionally” essential amino acid and found mostly in the skeletal muscle (the most abundant amino acid in the muscle). L-glutamine is recognized as an important anti-catabolic agent. It is naturally released by the body during muscle stress. Every cell in the body uses glutamine & some more heavily dependent on it (such as the intestinal lining and immune cells). To satisfy the body’s needs, when the reserves are depleted, the body will break down muscle tissue. Drawing water into muscle cells, L-Glutamine serves as “muscle food” by donating carbon to help replenish glycogen. Plus, L-Glutamine neutralizes muscle breakdown induced by cortisol, promotes increase in protein synthesis, increases glutathione (a powerful antioxidant defense for body), and may increase serum growth hormone levels.

What is L-Citrulline?

L-Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that is a precursor to arginine and nitric oxide. It improves blood flow and supply of nutrients, can be used by body to produce arginine, can help detoxify ammonia in the body, and decrease lactate buildup in body.

Need more reasons to take Intra Edg3?

  • Peak workout performance & intensity
  • Reduce lactic acid build up
  • Faster recovery from workouts
  • Increased protein synthesis

How do I take it?

Mix 1-3 rounded scoops with 8-10 oz. of water (depending on desired consistency). Shake well and consume during workouts, or on non-workout days consume 1 serving throughout the day. Dosage based on weight and gender: Women up to 125lbs, use 1 scoop as one serving. Women over 125lbs, use 2 scoops as one serving. Men up to 200lbs, use 2 scoops as one serving. Men over 200lbs, use 3 scoops as one serving. Get the Edg3 on not only your workout, but on fat-burning and muscle-building as well. Intra Edg3: more than an advanced workout catalyst.
