Ah! that's the other supp I saw that has HICA in it...I just saw that Anabolic Designs is also releasing a HICA based supp...here's an excerpt copy/pasta from their (bbs) write up...for all to paruse...
Composed of a powerful metabo- lite synthesized for maximum absorption and efficiency as well as key ingredients to enhance the bioavailability and effectiveness... In studies HICA has been shown to increase lean muscle tissue and reduce muscle soreness thus allow- ing you to train harder, train longer, and quicker. Getting you ready for the next xtreme workout or athletic event!
HICA (alpha-hydroxyisocaproic acid) helps increase protein synthe- sis through it’s key molecule Leucic Acid. This concentrated dose of Leucic Acid is delivered to the muscle tissue without being broken down by the gut! Once it reaches the muscle tissue it prevents catabolism (muscle wasting) and increases anabolism (muscle building). End result is increased
muscle output and repair.
