Grow muscle while you sleep – Advertisement
Everyone’s talking about them: specialized, slow-release protein complexes you drink at night, right before you go to bed. What makes them so special? Do they really work? And, which one is right for you? A comprehensive report on the most important development in body building since the introduction of creatine.
Specialized, slow-release protein complexes you drink at night, right before you go to bed. They’re hot. Really hot! Why?
Because they help you grow muscle mass overnight while you sleep!!!
That’s right, while most companies have concentrated on producing super-absorbable pre-and post-workout protein powders, bars, and drinks, they have overlooked one of potentially productive anabolic periods of the day… that 6 – 8 hours when you sleep.
Now, we know what you’re thinking: “A protein shake before bed is gonna help me grow muscle while I sleep? Yeah, right.” Well, these amazing new compounds are not your “ordinary” daytime protein powder. Their structure and composition have been altered (through a unique patent-pending process) to maximize the anabolic character of slow-wave “Delta” sleep while effectively controlling the catabolic nature of the later stage of slumber known as “REM.” Sound confusing? Let’s look at the science.
It’s called Nocturnal (sleep-induced) Post-Absorptive Muscle Catabolism… better known in elite bodybuilding circles as “NPMC.” No, NPMC is not a disease. It’s a natural, everynight event that occurs during the later hours of sleep… after the release of Growth Hormone has abated…when your body’s ability to synthesize new protein (build new muscle mass) is drastically cut. NPMC affects everyone… reducing muscle growth during what should be the most productive muscle-building cycle (sleep).
So why haven’t you heard much about NPMC? Frankly, until the development of “slow-release” night time proteins, there was nothing you or anyone else could do about it.
To defeat Nocturnal Post-Absorptive Muscle Catabolism, scientists had to go back to square one… a fundamental understanding of how and why the human body builds muscle. For example: even if you don’t know all there is to know about exercise physiology, you do know muscle growth has everything to do with recovery. When you lift hard, you push your muscles to their absolute limit… causing microscopic “rips” or “tears” deep in the muscle tissue. Repairing those rips and tears adds mass to the muscle… causing growth.
The key to muscle growth and repair is having an adequate supply of bio-available protein throughout the night when your body goes through a variety of metabolic and hormonal changes. For example, let’s take a look at growth hormone. A full 90% of your daily supply of growth hormone is released… not when you work out… not when you do cardio training… in fact, not even while you’re awake. The fact is, 90% of your growth hormone supply is released while you sleep–not only that, but during the first four hours of sleep! During this all-important period of sleep you need compound proteins and nutrients readily available to your muscles, so your body can successfully perform the muscle-repairing, muscle-building process that ultimately makes you big, ripped, and strong!
But if you think (as many “know-it-all” amateur bodybuilding “experts” do) that you can beat NPMC by waking up in the middle of the night to down some “high-tech” protein shake, you’re dead wrong. Waking up in the middle of the night to down an ordinary “workout” protein mix simply adds additional calories that are converted to fat.
That’s because high-tech protein compounds, by their very nature, have been designed and developed for rapid absorption. These highly specialized “workout” proteins, while effective in enhancing muscle growth when used just before and just after strength training, can’t help you overcome sleep-induced muscle catabolism because they’re assimilated so quickly that their protein is rapidly used up after only the first few short minutes of sleep… leaving nothing for your body to use as “muscle-building blocks” during the most productive period of “Delta” (slow-wave) sleep, when 90% of your X body’s growth hormone is released.
So, logically, in order to fight NPMC and maximize. muscle-building, you need to provide your body with the necessary proteins and nutrients to conform to the nightly hormonal and metabolic changes that occur during sleep… prolonging protein assimilation and preventing sleep-induced catabolism from taking over.
Without proper recovery parameters, and without the specific, unique, slow-assimilation technology used to prepare these “before-bed” protein formulations, your muscles will not be able to optimally repair themselves and get bigger–and you will never achieve the kind of maximum increases in lean, ripped muscle mass you want and deserve.
Remember, most bodybuilders in training get at least 6 – 8 hours of sleep per night… 25 – 33% of each day. In other words, if you don’t adequately provide your body with a specially designed, useable amino acid supply during that 6 – 8 hour nocturnal period of growth and repair, you can be losing up to 33% of potential muscle mass gain. Devastating!!!
Are “night time” protein compounds right for you? Only if getting big, ripped, and strong is your goal. So the next time you visit your local supplement retailer, ask them about products containing NitroVarin[TM]… the new protein complex you drink right before bed, to help “grow muscle overnight, while you sleep.”

Nocturnal (sleep-induced) Post-Absorptive Music Catabolism
Nocturnal (sleep-induced) Post-Absorptive Muscle Catabolism, better known in elite bodybuilding circles as “NPMC,” is not a disease. It’s a natural, everynight event that occurs during the later hours of sleep… after the release of Growth Hormone has abated… when your body’s ability to synthesize new protein (build new muscle mass) is drastically cut. NPMC affects everyone.., reducing muscle growth during what should be the most productive muscle-building cycle (sleep). So why haven’t you heard much about NPMC? Frankly, until the development of “slow-release” night time proteins, there was nothing you or anyone else could do about it.
Question & Answers
Q: When do I take a “night time” protein complex, and do I use it every day?
A: After you’ve decided which “night time protein complex is right for you, you drink it right before you go to bed, on the days you do your heaviest, most anaerobic lifting – usually every other day.
Q: Do I need to stop taking my regular protein during the day?
A: Absolutely not. The reason “daytime” pre- and post-workout proteins work is because they are designed and formulated for rapid absorption… they provide immediate, quick-absorbing protein to replenish the protein stores depleted during intensive workouts. So, by all means, continue to use your regular ‘daytime” proteins during the day. The new, specially formulated “night time’ proteins, while not ideally suited for pre- and post-workout use, are the only compounds specifically formulated to maximize muscle growth and decrease catabolism during the 6-8 hours you sleep per day… that’s one-third of your muscle-building potential.
Q: Are the new “night time” proteins worth the price?
A: It all depends. If you want to get big, ripped, and strong, the fact is, you can’t afford to waste up to one-third of your muscle-building potential… so we know you’re going to buy some “night time’ protein soon. Is it expensive? Well, not really.., you only take them once a day — right before you go to bed — and only on the nights following heavy, anaerobic lifting (usually about every other day). So, on a daily basis, the new “night time” proteins are even less expensive to use than your regimen of regular “workout” shakes. But with the increase in muscle growth you’ll experience after you begin taking your new “night time” protein, you’ll consider it the smartest bodybuilding purchase you ever made!
