When it comes to muscle growth, the mechanistic Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) is found at the epicenter. mTOR controls cell size by “reading” signals provided by the body, such as exercise, protein intake, and cellular stability.

When we exercise, especially with resistance exercise, Phosphatidic Acid is released from the muscle filaments. This mechanotransducer signals to mTOR that the body is exercising and it is time to grow.

When we eat protein, we’re also taking in Leucine, especially if we’re consuming a high quality protein like beef, fish, chicken, or dairy (whey). Leucine is the nutritional signal that tells mTOR it’s time to start building and growing muscle.

After we exercise, we’re left with muscle damage. In other words, some of our cellular stability is lost, which represents a suboptimal time for muscle growth, as cellular efforts must focus on restoration before growth. Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) helps prevent muscle protein breakdown, aka muscle damage, for a greater total anabolic effect.

Supplementing with each of these three primary ingredients plus vitamin D with TOR-ACTIV is a surefire way to accelerate muscle gain and transform a physique for the better.

Supplement Facts

 best muscle building supplement


Vitamin D3

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble, hormone-like vitamin with a major role in bone health.

  • Vitamin D supplementation has been noted to increase testosterone levels
  • Vitamin D insufficiency may be associated with greater body fat
  • May help with muscle recovery

Phosphatidic Acid

Phosphatidic Acid is a small phospholipid molecule that helps transfer the physical stimulus of exercise to the cellular level.

  • Increases muscle mass
  • Boosts strength gains
  • May help with fat loss


Leucine is an essential amino acid and the primary branched chain amino acid.

  • Leucine increases muscle protein synthesis
  • Leucine independently is able to stimulate mTOR


HMB augments cholesterol synthesis and helps stabilize cellular membranes to decrease muscle protein breakdown.

  • Leucine metabolite
  • Greatly decreases catabolism while maintaining mild anabolic properties
  • Helps resist symptoms of over-reaching and over-training

Q: What is the best way to use TOR-ACTIV?

A: As a dietary supplement, take 1 serving (5 capsules) with water or a beverage of your choice 30-60 minutes prior to your workout or in the morning. The studies on Phosphatidic Acid have administered the supplement as follows: 3 capsules before, 2 capsules after training.


Q: Can I stack other products with TOR-ACTIV?

A: Yes. TOR-ACTIV can be stacked with Rage pre workout, and with T-MAXX for the ultimate growth combo.
