Product Information

Powerful Non-Steroidal Muscle Growth Stimulator!*

HICA-MAX™ is a powerful non-hormonal, natural stimulator of ­muscle growth. HICA-MAX™ chewables contain 100% pharmaceutical grade leucic acid, also known as alpha-hydroxy-isocaproic acid (HICA), a natural metabolite of the branched chain amino acid, leucine.*

HICA-MAX™ works by increasing protein synthesis (anabolism), and decreasing muscle protein breakdown (catabolism.) Its mechanism of action has been suggested as an independent mTOR signal transducer, which is a “cell-signaler” for muscle protein synthesis. Leucic acid also interrupts muscle protein breakdown by activating nuclear factor kappa B and inhibiting caspase-8. It may also activate IGF-1, a growth factor that helps age-related decreases in your body’s growth hormone output.*

Hica-Max As a hard training athlete, HICA-MAX™ can help you:

Hica Maxx
  • Create explosive gains in muscle and strength faster than ever before, without the negative side effects of steroids or prohormones.*
  • Rapidly accelerate recovery from workouts, so you can train more often.*
  • Reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) allowing you to train harder.*1

Unlike prohormones or anabolic steroids, HICA-MAX™ activates ­anabolic and anti-catabolic pathways without directly affecting your body’s hormonal balance. HICA-MAX™ gives you maximum muscle growth without negative side effects! You don’t have to cycle off HICA-MAX™.*

Just three HICA-MAX™ tablets is an efficacious daily dose of what may be the most powerful non-steroidal muscle growth stimulator in existence! HICA-MAX? comes in 4 delicious, sugar-free flavors. HICA-MAX™ offers the most cost-effective solution to accelerating muscle growth gains in the gym while also reducing muscle soreness from super-charged workouts!*

I have went through 5 containers of this stuff and have noticed nothing. And YES, I do still get muscle soreness after an INTENSE workout. And am taking in appx. 1G of Protein per lb of body weight in Protein powder alone. That's not including my meals. The tablet's do taste great. However, just like the science behind the product "Ribose", I feel that this product is a waste of money because it does'nt work in a real world setting.*
