Phosphatidic Acid, or Mediator® ( Trademarked name) is a naturally occurring phospholipid that is vital in the functioning of cell-membranes and initiating cell signaling -- namely mTOR and the proliferation of muscle cells. There has been several published research papers demonstrating Phosphatidic Acid to stimulate mTOR signaling pathways --- which basically means this ingredient will initiate muscle protein synthesis and spark potential muscle growth , and strength gains.
One study showed subjects taking 750 mg of Phosphatidic Acid per day combined with resistance-training 4x a week achieved 50% greater increase in muscle cross-sectional area and lean body mass. A 40% greater increase in total strength (upper and lower body), and 60% greater loss in body fat than the training-only group.
This product is a powder and comes with 800mg of Phosphatidic Acid per scoop. We recommend pairing Mediator® with our Pharmgrade Essential Amino Acids, throw your scoop of Mediator® in with your scoop of Pharmgrade EAA and mix with water. Or simply take your unflavored Mediator scoop on it's own with water.
Pretty dang good.
