Density Anabolic Efficiency
5 Reasons Bodybuilders Love This Supplement
1.High Anabolic Efficiency:When your muscles are thick, lean and hard you have the look of muscle density. Everyone wants muscle density but look aroundhow many of us actually have it?
Achieving muscle density requires increasing the protein content of your muscle cells, which in turn requires stimulating protein synthesis well above normal on a consistent basis (refer to "The Density Cycle" diagram). All other things held constant, the more protein your muscle cells contain per unit of volume, the thicker, leaner and harder your muscles will appear.

Anabolic Efficiency (AE), AE refers to the ability of a nutritional supplement to stimulate protein synthesis per unit mass (e.g. gram) of it that is ingested. As you might expect, advanced bodybuilders need high-AE supplements.
A combination of highly purified essential amino acids such as occurs in the nutritional supplement Density can support a higher AE than may be found with proteins when consumed before and after resistance exercise (i.e. pre- and post-training). This promotes the increases in muscle cell protein content that you need to achieve the look of muscle density.
2. Laboratory-Tested, Pharmaceutical Grade:Advanced bodybuilders take comfort in the fact that Density is a pharmaceutical-grade amino acid formula capable of supporting a high AE. This has been confirmed by independent laboratory testing. Other products on the market have been tested and found to contain animal grade amino acids. Animal grade is the lowest grade on the market, unsuitable for use by scientists engaged in research and development, let alone advanced bodybuilders seeking measurable increases in muscle density.
When 6 amino acid formulas on the market where tested, 5 of them were found to be of animal grade. These disappointing test results suggest that unless you choose a proven formula, the odds of you experiencing satisfying results are poor.
3. Contains L-tryptophan:Each serving of Density supplies 8 dietarily essential and 10 dietarily non-essential amino acids*, including L-tryptophan. L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid and is required for protein synthesis as well as the synthesis of niacin and serotonin. When an amino acid formula lacks L-tryptophan it will have a much lower AE. Advanced bodybuilders cannot expect visible muscle building results from using it.
Laboratory tests performed on Density reveal that its L-tryptophan is highly purified, pharmaceutical grade material. Other products were tested and found to contain numerous impurities. Impurities may render an amino acid formula ineffective or, worse still, unsafe. As one supplement formulator with years of industry experience recently stated the lack of [pharmaceutical-grade] L-tryptophan [in other formulas] makes them a joke.
4. No digestion required:When you eat a meal, the protein that it provides is digested (i.e. broken down) into its component amino acids in your gastrointestinal tract. This can take up to several hours. In contrast, the Density formula requires no digestion: Its amino acids can be absorbed and utilized instantly.
5. Provides the Missing Anabolic Link:Every meal you eat is characterized by a unique amino acid profile. This refers to the types and quantities of amino acids present in the meal. Some amino acid profiles are better suited for advanced bodybuilding needs than are others. For instance, occasionally a meal may be too low in one or more amino acids to support optimal rates of muscle protein synthesis. This produces a missing anabolic link that can slow down your muscle gains.
Density’s pharmaceutical-grade amino acid profile includes more than enough of each amino acid to address your metabolic needs. Thus by taking it along with your meals you can ensure that they provide the most complete amino acid profile possible. Youll never be too low in any one or more amino acids. Anabolism can proceed uninterrupted.
Of course, what makes Density such a powerful complement to your meals also renders it 100% effective as a stand-alone supplement: Density can be ingested in between meals to top off your circulating (blood) and tissue (e.g. muscle) amino acid levels. This is a widely used practice of advanced bodybuilders.
Advanced Bodybuilders Love DensityAdvanced bodybuilders spend hours in the gym and following strict diets in order to achieve the look of muscle density. They love the feeling they get when they achieve it. They also know that Density by Beverly International is the only amino acid formula with the 5 properties listed in this article, properties that are essential if you want to see measurable increases in muscle density from such a product.
Don’t gamble when the odds are stacked against you. Ensure that you get a laboratory-tested, pharmaceutical-grade amino acid formula capable of producing the winning physique that you so desperately seek. Add Density to your daily nutritional plan today.
Dietarily Essential or Non-Essential Amino Acids: A dietarily essential amino acid cannot be synthesized by the body in sufficient quantities. It must therefore be supplied by the diet (hence dietarily essential). A dietarily non-essential amino acid, on the other hand, doesnt have to be supplied in the diet since the body can synthesize it in sufficient quantities.
How did researchers come up with the Density formula? Why does each serving contain 500 mg of each of the EAAs?
Below the product formulator who first conceived of Density in the 1980s answers these questions:
"One serving of Density supplies more than enough of the essential amino acids [EAAs] to address any muscle-building or other metabolic needs that the advanced bodybuilder may have. The EAAs can be used as is. They can also be converted into other amino acids that may be lacking. Note that your individual amino acid needs vary throughout the day.
In coming up with the Density formula we consulted with a recognized Ph.D. chemist with experience using amino acids in pharmaceutical applications. He suggested using equal amounts of EAAs as occurs in the current Density formula (500 mg of each EAA).
By adding Density to your diet no longer do you have to worry about building muscle, burning fat or recovering from your workouts at anything less than the fastest possible speeds. And, you can rest assured that you are using a safe product.
No one has ever had a product that compares to Density. All the other formulas failed to provide enough of each EAA. They might have a lot of the cheapest EAA and little or none of the more expensive ones. Also, many formulas were animal-grade, which is totally useless for a human, much less an advanced bodybuilder."Taken: Before Meals or Training
It disappeared for 16 yearsIn late 2007 Beverly re-introduced a top-quality essential amino acid (EAA) formula after having kept it off the market for 16 years. Nothing was wrong with it. Quite the contrary, everything about this formula was right.
The problem was that a key ingredient suddenly became unavailable. Could they continue selling the product without it? Beverly’s scientists answered this question with a resolute No. It was just too important, they felt, and its absence would make the formula incomplete. Besides being essential in the human diet, this ingredient is the exclusive precursor to a powerful neurotransmitter that affects everything from smooth muscle tone, blood flow, appetite, mood, sleep, the ability to cope with stress, and even endurance. In one study, researchers described it as having a hormone-like ability to promote protein synthesis 1.
Beverly’s scientists felt so strongly about the importance of the above-mentioned ingredient to the effectiveness of their formula that they refused to sell it without it. Little did they know that it would be well over a decade before it became commercially available again. Only then would they agree to resume selling DENSITY.
What are EAA?Essential amino acids (EAA) are so-named because your body cannot make them in adequate quantities to support proper functioning, if it can make any of them at all. For this reason, they must be supplied in the diet. Healthy adult humans require a total of 8 EAA. DENSITY is a complete formula in that it contains all EAA.
Assess your "Anabolic Efficiency" Instructions:Answer the questions below with a "Yes" or "No". If you answer Yes to 2 or more questions, then you may suffer from low anabolic efficiency. Do you find that you lose muscle size and/or strength quickly if you eat less frequently than every 3 hours, or miss meals?
2. Do you find that you lose muscle size and/or strength quickly if you miss workouts?
3. Do you ever find yourself hungry specifically for protein?
4. If you reduce your protein intake, do your muscles appear less dense (i.e. softer)?
5. If you lift lighter weights and perform higher reps for a few workouts, do your muscles appear smaller or less dense?
6. Do you generally find it hard to gain lean muscle on your body?
Building, shaping, toning, strengthening –whatever type of changes you are trying to make to your body, your efforts are likely to be fraught with uncertainty. Did you perform enough sets or reps at the gym? Did you eat enough grams of protein? Will your last meal keep your muscles in an anabolic state long enough to last you until your next one? Are you gaining muscle size, shape and/or tone with each passing month? Or are you slowly losing all of these things?
Even when you eat a meal containing protein-rich foods –chicken, red meat, fish or egg whites, for instance—you may leave the table wondering if you got enough of each amino acid required to maximize muscle protein synthesis (anabolism) and minimize muscle protein breakdown (catabolism). Achieving both –simultaneously—is the key to building muscle mass and performance as quickly as possible.
In a world of anabolic and catabolic uncertainty, DENSITY can bring you real comfort. Because this formula is complete with all 8 of the amino acids required in the diet of healthy adults (i.e. essential amino acids [EAA]), it provides a protective roof of dual anabolism and anti-catabolism over your muscles every time you take it, among other benefits. By supplementing your diet with DENSITY, no meal –or even the breaks between meals— can hold you back any longer from stimulating protein synthesis and reducing protein breakdown, the combined effect of which is to push your muscles in the direction of greater mass, density and overall performance. DENSITY gives your diet and training program that extra anabolic and anti-catabolic edge that so many other amino acid formulas have been unable to provide athletes with.
How anabolically efficient are you?There isn’t a single individual for whom the amino acids in DENSITY aren’t essential. Of course, just because certain amino acids are essential, this doesn’t mean that every athlete will benefit to the same extent by supplementing his or her diet with more of them. To assess your potential to benefit from DENSITY, answer the 6 questions that appear in the accompanying text box with a Yes or No answer.
If you answered Yes to 2 or more of the questions, then it’s highly likely you will see and feel substantial benefits upon supplementing your current diet and training program with DENSITY. (You’ll be a high responder, if you will.) These questions assess your body’s ability to efficiently regulate the turnover (i.e. synthesis and breakdown) of tissue proteins (muscle protein, in particular), both in response to changes in your training and diet. As you might expect, everyone is different in terms of their anabolic efficiency. If you are a hard gainer, then you probably struggle with low anabolic efficiency. No worries. The less efficient your body is, the more likely you are to see and feel real physique and performance benefits from using DENSITY on a regular basis.
Even if you have high anabolic efficiency, certain things can bring it down. You can miss a meal. You can fail to get enough EAA in the proper proportions. You can over-train. You can under-train. You can eat a lot of protein for several days and then suddenly cut way back on your protein intake. If you reduce your calories in an effort to lose body weight or fat, then this, too, can severely impact your anabolic efficiency. In fact, it can send you into a state of runaway muscle catabolism. In every one of these cases, DENSITY can be used to enhance your anabolic efficiency within minutes of ingesting its easy-to-swallow tablets. The effects can last hours.
ConclusionIn 1991, a key ingredient with a hormone-like ability to promote protein synthesis became unavailable and Beverly stopped selling DENSITY. In late 2007, the missing ingredient became available again. This allowed Beverly to resume selling what may be the most overlooked, underutilized and powerful essential amino acid (EAA) formula in the sports nutrition supplement marketplace.
