Orotic Acid for Muscle Growth and Faster Recovery

From the manufacturer:

Regarded as an effective sports supplement, Orotic Acid (OA) is a pyrimidinecarboxylic acid typically used as a mineral carrier in order to increase bioavailability. On its own, OA is supplemented to enhance athletic performance, promoting muscle growth and faster recovery. For maximum results in the gym, OA is frequently stacked with Creatine to boost power production.

Stack with Essential Amino Acids or Whey, Ecdysterone, Taurine, Betaine and Glycine for a better recovery boost. Take all as directed.
