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 have 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 a 50% greater increase in muscle cross-sectional area and lean body mass. A 40% greater increase in total strength (upper and lower body), and a 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 its own with water.
