Muscle Matrix is a new BCAA powder blend from HiT Supplements that was released few months back. The BCAAs blend is a 2:1:1 ratio with 1250mg Leucine, 625mg Isoleucine and 625mg of Valine. Muscle Matrix also utilizes HICA and Sustamine to improve recovery and endurance during workout. You also get a good amount of Sodium,Chloride,Potassium and Vitamin B6.
Personally I bought the Muscle Matrix blend for the HICA(alpha hydroxyisocaproic acid). This form of amino acid has been proven to stop breakdown of muscle. Also Sustamine gives you a good amount of L-Glutamine which of course helps reduce soreness and speed up recovery.
There’s not much to choose flavor wise, you will either like or hate the Mixed Berry flavor. It is recommended to use muscle matrix during and post-workout, just mix 1(5.6g) scoop with 8 ounces of liquid.
Well only flavor is the mixed berry, and you need to be a seasoned person when it comes to supplements. It taste like medicine, it is naturally flavored and you can really tell. Little bit of an after taste.
Mixes fine, other then little bit of grit. It wasn’t the issue for me compared to the taste. Most people would consider this a good mixing supplement.
I took it two times a day, as an intra and post-workout aid. During the workout I noticed I had more energy, I could lift more, wasn’t burning out as fast, and I new that it was because of Muscle Matrix because the days I mixed taking it, I noticed fatigue and longer rest period between sets. Where it really shine I feel is post workout, you wake up refreshed and ready to go in the morning. I workout hard at the gym and am always trying to find ways to change it up so I can feel the burn the next day, while on muscle matrix the soreness was less noticeable for sure.
I don’t like the price because at 2 scoops a day it doesn’t give you a full month supply and for 40$ a tub I was expecting a month full. I think there are BCAA supplements just as good for cheaper.
I think if you don’t mind the taste and little bit of grit in the mixing, the HiT Supplements Muscle Matrix will help you where it counts. I think you will notice it in and out of the gym, it will allow you to get the most out of your workout. If you can afford it, I would recommend giving it a try.
