CinDura

CinDura is a patented, botanical-based proprietary combination made up of Garcinia Mangostana fruit rind extract and Cinnamomum Tamala leaf extract (Indian bay leaf).

What it does

CinDura has been clinically studied and shown to support strength and performance, as well as muscle gains, in resistance training subjects. Moreover, based on emerging pre-clinical research, CinDura is believed to work through multiple mechanisms that facilitate muscle energy production and promote anabolic activity (muscle growth) while inhibiting catabolic activity (muscle breakdown).

How it works

Based on emerging pre-clinical findings, researchers believe the active components of CinDura help to enhance mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are the “engines” of our muscle cells, and efficient mitochondria help increase energy production to support lifting and endurance exercises.

CinDura is also thought to support the increase of AMPK activity (5′ AMP-activated protein kinase), which then influences various metabolic pathways to enhance strength, increase energy and modulate macronutrient usage. Active components of CinDura may even inhibit the proteasome pathway to help prevent muscle breakdown.

Dosing

In a 42-day randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 38 recreationally trained subjects, those taking 800mg of CinDura significantly increased their strength, endurance and body mass composition versus the placebo group.
