DNA® also contains the intense anabolism-triggering ingredient L-Leucine Alpha KIC to ensure the most complete, natural muscle gains rarely produced in a non-hormonal supplement. These scientifically proven ingredients have been known to improve density of muscles and strength, recovery and athletic performance. Only a formula this concentrated comes with a 3-day strength guarantee!*
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are known as the building blocks of muscle. They must be present for muscle development and growth. The essential BCAAs are leucine, isoleucine and valine. These BCAAs are classified as “essential” because the human body does not produce them – they must be taken through supplementation.
• Instant strength
• Improved recovery
• Increased endurance
• Increased protein synthesis (utilization of protein)
• Long-term increased lean muscle mass
• Long-term muscle hardening and definition
• It offers 7 of the most innovative, pure, Pharmaceutical Grade sources of BCAAs, including the latest Ethyl Ester & Ketoisocaproate Calcium technology
• Ethyl Ester is the first bonding molecule to pass the blood-brain barrier, thus effectively saturating every cell in the body with a larger dose of the attached BCAA
• Ketoisocaproate Calcium (KIC) is perfectly anti-catabolic – it assists in muscle growth by changing the environment in your body from catabolic (muscle wasting) to anabolic (muscle building)
• It also supplies a potent dose of Glycine-L-Arginine – an ingredient scientifically proven to enhance muscle performance and recovery from fatigue by sustaining muscle force and overall output
• Uses weights with their training program
• Is looking to improve strength and endurance
• Is trying to increase lean muscle mass & improve body composition
• Is a bodybuilder, fitness competitor or athlete

160 capsules per bottle
Take 8 capsules on an empty stomach** 15 minutes prior to training
**Empty stomach is the key to the absorption and ultimately your success with Magnum DNA
An extremely anabolic pre-workout formula unlike any other! DNA users routinely report that they are able to do more reps with the same weight from their previous workout from their very first dose! Strength, power, recovery, endurance & muscle hardening all attained within 3 days!
DNA is truly an awesome supplement because it's the only BCAA based anabolic formula that you will feel from your very first workout.
First off all, why Ethyl Ester BCAA’s?
The ingredients are subjected to a chemical process that “esterifies” the ingredients, this makes the BCAAs less polar and therefore more easily absorbed in the digestive tract. Because of this design, each amino acid can pass through the intestine largely intact. The ethyl ester also protects the BCAA molecules from rapid degradation; making them much more effective in smaller doses than other BCAA products.
L-Isoleucine and L-Isoleucine Ethyl Ester
L-Isoleucine is an amino acid, one of three known as branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Isoleucine is an isomer of Leucine. It is important in the regulation of blood sugar, and also helps increase energy levels. Some of the benefits of L-IsoLeucine include the regulation of blood sugar levels in the body, and producing hemoglobin. This amino acid is responsible for muscle recovery after exercise, and is important in metabolism for producing energy. L-IsoLeucine is also beneficial for preventing muscles wasting in individuals with debilitations. It is also essential for the production and maintenance of body proteins, and is involved in blood clot formation. IsoLeucine is necessary for nitrogen balance in adults, and for the healthy, normal growth of infants. IsoLeucine is probably best known for its use in increasing endurance and helping heal and repair muscle tissue. Serious athletes and bodybuilders need this amino acid because of its ability to boost muscular energy levels and help the muscles recover from strenuous exercise and other physical activities. Bodybuilding requires energy and endurance. By using IsoLeucine the muscles fully recover after exercise. IsoLeucine is literally broken down within the muscle tissue to provide energy.
L-Valine and L-Valine Ethyl Ester
L-Valine is an amino acid and is not only an essential amino acid but is also a branched-chain amino acid found in high concentration in the muscles. It has a stimulating effect and is needed for muscle metabolism, repair and growth of tissue and maintaining the nitrogen balance in the body. Since it is a branched-chain amino acid, it can be used as an energy source in the muscles, and in doing so, preserves the use of glucose.
L-Leucine and L-Leucine Ethyl Ester
L-Leucine is an essential branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) that's broken down in fat structures. L-Leucine cannot be made by the body, and must be acquired through food or dietary supplements. L-Leucine comprises about eight percent of the total amino acid count in your body's protein structures; it is the forth most concentrated amino acid in skeletal muscle tissue. As one of the three BCAA's, L-Leucine is essential to your basic health. It has athletic applications. L-Leucine has many beneficial effects on sports performance. It helps preserve lean muscle tissue, it supplies the body with energy when under stress (i.e. when engaging in athletic activity), it preserves muscle glycogen (glucose stored in muscle tissue used to power muscular contraction), it maintains nitrogen balance, and it enhances thinking abilities that can decline as physical activity becomes more intense. The effects of L-Leucine in the diet are profound. As the strongest of the BCAA's, L-Leucine is what's known as a "limiting nutrient" - meaning that you must have enough L-Leucine in proportion to other amino acids in order for your body to make use of what you eat. Simply: If you suffer from an L-Leucine deficiency, your body will not be able to make use of the protein that you give it - no matter how much protein you consume.
L-Leucine Ketoisocaproate Calcium 1:1
Has been shown to trigger an anabolic reaction within the human body, with no androgenic side effects. L-Leucineketoisocaproate Calcium is also an anti-catabolic compound, turning off the body’s ability to strip away and break down muscle tissue. The Leucine component of this compound is a branched chain amino acid (BCAA) that serves several valuable functions in the body. This particular BCAA works to repair muscles, regulates blood sugar and provides the body with energy, increasing production of growth hormones, and assists the body in burning fat. Leucine also helps to promote recovery of muscle tissue post intense exercise. This amino acid is also popular for its anti-catabolic effects on the body. This amino acid is known as essential, because it cannot be manufactured by the body and so must be obtained externally from one's diet. The second component of this novel ingredient is alpha-ketoisocaproic acid calcium. This is known as KIC. KIC is a branched chain keto acid (BCKA) and has very powerful anti-catabolic effects - this means that it can help prevent muscle loss. BCKA also aids in a muscles energy production, while also assisting the body in removing ammonia. Ammonia can cause fatigue after intense training.
Helps the body to remove and prevent the build up of fatigue toxins such as Ammonia that cause the body to lose strength and eventually fail towards the end of the workout. Intense weight training causes a rapid build-up of metabolites (or "intra-muscular toxins") with every muscle contraction. This accumulation triggers a decrease in the pH level of the muscle tissue interfering with the muscle's ability to release calcium. Unfortunately, the final outcome of this accumulation is always the same: fatigue and a rapid decline in muscle power, strength and endurance, thus compromising the performance of the athlete.
The compound glycine-l-arginine-alpha-ketoisocaproic acid calcium as a ketone group has no Ammonia in it as ketone compounds usually do. For this reason when it enters the body and the muscle cells, it scavenges for Ammonia particles with which it can react neutrally to become more chemically stable. What that means is that this compound glycine-l-arginine-alpha-ketoisocaproic acid calcium is pre-disposed to remove Ammonia from the muscle cells. The acid, when it enters the body, is converted to leucine that carries out the function above as well as glycine and arginine, which then are responsible for moving the removed Ammonia through the uric acid system to be eliminated from the body. The glycine is also said to give the effect of an insulin stimulator while the arginine is able to increase blood flow to the area affected by the toxins allowing the leucine to get at even more of the toxins it seeks to eliminate.
