Product Overview


Labrada 100% Whey Protein


HICA-MAX™ is a powerful, non-hormonal, natural stimulator of muscle growth.* HICA-MAX™ chewables contain leucic acid, also know as alpha-hydroxy- isocaproic acid (HICA) – a natural metabolite of the branched chain amino acid, leucine.

HICA-MAX™ works by supporting protein synthesis (anabolism), and decreasing muscle protein breakdown (catabolism). Its mode of action has been suggested as an independent mTOR signal transducer, which is a “cell-signaler” for muscle protein synthesis. Leucic acid may interrupt muscle protein breakdown by activating nuclear factor kappa B and inhibiting caspase-8. It may also activate IGF-1.*


Supports gains in both muscle and strength.*
Accelerate your workout recovery so you can train more often.*
Reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), allowing you to train harder.*
Supports an increase in lean muscle gains.*

Hi, I have inserted HICA-Max in my supplement pack and I must say that taste is very good, but it's rather expensive for a simple treat, yes as I didn't notice any effect on my training, body or alike. I gave it a try and renewed it thinking one box was maybe not enough but nothing came. Maybe it work for others but nothing for me.

Verified Buyer

I actually found this to be real decent. Given the leucine content gives you an easy way to get an insulin spike post workout.

Verified Buyer

Increases muscle growth at a faster rate when used in combination with HMB. Helps maintain size when cutting carbohydrates.

Verified Buyer

Great product and taste. Leucine inhibitor and has helped with lean mass.

Verified Buyer

So far has work for me as when taking this,it does not allow you to go on catabolism.Worked great as my prep for a show as anti catabolic.
