MuscleTech is a brand of sports supplements that was founded in 1995. These sports supplements are a brand under Iovate Health Sciences International Inc.. The Io in Iovate comes from the syllable “bio” and relates to biology and biotechnology. The vate of Iovate comes from the word “motivate”. This ensures success in sports which includes weight loss, weight training and wellness. Vate also refers to “innovation” which Iovate believes is a key to their future success. The whole idea behind their supplementation was to bring together fitness and nutrition with quality products with key ingredients backed by scientific research. They are located at 381 North Service Road West, Oakville, Ontario, L6M OH4, Canada.
For over two decades, this brand sets an industry-defining product that has aided bodybuilders as well as athletes to realize their goals. They are reported to provide the best supplements globally because of their elite team of researchers that have developed cutting-edge formulas. This brand is listed as the #1 selling bodybuilding supplement in the United States since 2006. Their distribution includes more than 80 countries and they have more than 50 patents protecting their products.
MuscleTech commits at least 3.5 million dollars every year to research and development which involves clinical research, third-party scientific study reviews and consulting with university researchers. They have 30 dedicated individuals to R&D that spend their time on new ingredient discovery, product development and quality control.
Their products include Hydroxycut, Anabolic Halo, Gakic Hardcore, Leukic Hardcore, Vitakic, Cell-Tech Hardcore, Creakic Hardccore, Nitro-Tech Hardcore, naNoX9, Meso-Tech Hardcore, naNO Vapor as well as a number of “muscle stacks”. The Cell-Tech line was available in 1998 and was the first creatine-carbohydrate-alpha lipoic acid supplement of its kind.
MuscleTech's philosophy is to be known as the world leader in sports nutrition and to support this they fund university research to better understand muscle metabolism, biochemistry, fat oxidation and performance. They want to be able to increase lean muscle mass and by so doing increase muscle strength. In fact, they have a multi-million dollar partnership with the University of Toronto to develop the MuscleTech® Metabolism & Sport Science Lab which is part of the 58 million dollar Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport. This science lab will be developing new ingredients for the sports arena by making use of new technologies and equipment. The lab will be open in the fall (2016). No doubt, the research produced in this arena will be far reaching not only for high performance sport enthusiasts but sports medicine and rehabilitation as well.
