Plasma Muscle: Part 3 of MuscleTech’s Build Muscle Trilogy

MuscleTech Plasma Muscle

MuscleTech’s muscle-building trilogy started with Clear Muscle in 2014 and continued with Phospha Muscle in 2015. Is Plasma Muscle the final chapter, or will MuscleTech continue to innovate?

Several weeks ago, MuscleTech confirmed the release of a brand new supplement meant to build muscle and be taken pre workout. Its name is Plasma Muscle, and it is the third act in MT’s trilogy (after Clear Muscle and Phospha Muscle) designed to superior results in the gym.

A full ingredient label isn’t available yet, but several juicy details have leaked out about Plasma Muscle and we’re here to give you the low down on it’s key ingredients, Peak-ATP® and optiNOs®.

The front label comes with the following claims:

  • “Test subjects gained 8.8lbs. of lean muscle”
  • “96% increase in muscle thickness”
  • “147% more strength”
  • “30% more power”
  • “4 times more reps”

Those are some bold claims, so we can’t wait to see how the studies discussed below work out for regular users like you and me.

Plasma Muscle’s Ingredients

Note: This section will be continually updated as information comes out

Although we don’t have the “official” label for Plasma Muscle yet, we do believe that it’s a slim, two ingredient formula. One of them is brand new and has some promising research behind it, and the other is a little more familiar. Here’s the kicker, BOTH ingredients are exclusive to MT only, so if you’re hoping to find these goodies somewhere else, you’re S.O.L…

Enough chit-chat though, let’s start things off with the brand spanking new ingredient!

  • optiNOs® – 750mg

    MuscleTech Plasma Muscle optiNOs

    optiNOs is the revolutionary muscle-building ingredient that holds the key to Plasma Muscle’s success!

    First off, now that we’ve seen the front label of the bottle, we know that there’s 750mg OptiNOs per serving.

    What is/are optiNOs?

    optiNOs® is a patent-pending blend of three ingredients: Cissus, Curcuma, & Ajowan Extract. The first clue as to what optiNOs would be made of came when MT dropped the code name “LI89034F3.” Doing a little searching on the Google patents page reveals these details in regards to the exact composition of this revolutionary ingredient, “The composition-8 (LI89034F3) was prepared by combining the ethanol extract of Cissus quadrangularis (LI05704), methanol extract of Curcuma longa (LI09703) and ethanol extract Trachyspermum ammi (LI 12304), in the ratio of 2: 1:2″.[1]

    There’s a common theme to all three of these ingredients, they’ve all been traditionally used to fight signs of inflammation and promote joint health.[2,3,4]

    How do they work?

    According to MuscleTech’s soon-to-be released studies, optiNOs® works through a few different mechanisms in the body. One of these is vasodilation caused by an increase in Nitric Oxide (NO) production. This increase occurs when endothelial Nitric Oxide synthase (eNOS) is activated in the cells. The end result being more oxygen, blood, and nutrients getting to the muscles and helping to remove the buildup of metabolic waste products that occur during exercise, ultimately giving you the ability to workout with more intensity for a longer duration of time.

    Another suggested mechanism of optiNOs® is that it activates the mTOR pathway in skeletal muscle cells, resulting in more muscle tissue being created by the body (a.k.a. myogenesis). The research on optiNOs® hasn’t been made public yet, so we can’t verify MT’s claims, but this does sound rather intriguing. We’re always glad to see supplement companies trying new ideas rather than just rehashing the same old things day after day.

    When stacked with Clear Muscle, Plasma Muscle resulted in HUGE gains in muscle and overall strength!

  • Peak ATP® – 400mg

    Peak ATP® is the second MT-exclusive ingredient in Plasma Muscle. It’s chemically known as Adenosine-5′-triphosphate (ATP) disodium salt. Peak ATP® is thought to activate the mTOR pathway much like optiNOs®, but also increase calcium intake in skeletal muscle. This would lead to a stronger, and more powerful muscular contraction. Also, much like optiNOs, Peak ATP encourages vasodilation, thereby improving blood flow and nutrient transport to muscles cells.

    When put to the test, subjects using Peak ATP® Unlike the previous ingredient, a few studies have surfaced on Peak ATP®’s effects. The test group used in the trial experienced 128% total strength (bench, squat, and deadlift) increase and gained an additional 3.8 lbs of muscle mass over the placebo group.[5]

    Additionally, when stacked with another of the MT trilogy, Clear Muscle, Peak ATP® led to significant increases in power, strength, lean body mass, and recovery as compared to the control group.[6] So, not only does Peak ATP give you more energy to workout, it will also help you grind out those last few reps.

Our Plasma Muscle Review

Two of us have had the honor of trying Plasma Muscle. Medical Muscle Jay’s review is below:

Jay was training for a powerlifting meet and experienced PRs with the product! Pumps stayed strong, even without a pre workout later on.

As for me (Mike), I’m noticing that when using this product, energy is sky high – even on as little as 75mg of caffeine! I’m barely needing pre workout with this – this is my first Peak ATP experience, and I must say that I’m completely sold!

But even better, I’m definitely getting a lot out of the OptiNOs in terms of joint pain. My joints haven’t felt this good in over a year, and I’ve been using curcumin, but OptiNOs seem to lessen the pain even more. I didn’t expect that at all, and will gladly take it, since shoulder pain is my achilles heel in training.

Overall, we’re extraordinarily impressed with this product. We didn’t think it’d make that much of a difference when training, but it’s knocking two different things out of the park. Highly recommended.

Wrap Up

Muscletech Plasma Muscle

Plasma Muscle’s ingredients have finally been revealed!

As mentioned above, it’s always refreshing when supplement companies invest the time and research to look for the next “diamond in the rough” in regards to supplements. We’ll reserve final judgement on Plasma Muscle when we can see more of the research in regards to optiNOs® and once we get some user feedback from the masses on its effectiveness.

The closing act to MT’s “muscle-building” trilogy is now out, with great deals below. We’re not sure if there will be price drops since the price is already so low, so jump on it now or sign up for price alerts below.
