FAST FACTS

Fast Fact

Hypertrophy training focuses mostly on developing your muscles. You’ll focus on increasing the size of your muscle fibers, and developing large muscles in areas where you work out the most. This might be places like your thighs, calves, biceps, or back. Hypertrophy focuses more on moderate weight and moderate repetitions.

Fast Fact

Research supports the notion that greater muscular strength can enhance the ability to perform general sports skills such as jumping, sprinting, and change of direction tasks. Further research indicates that stronger athletes produce superior performances during sport-specific tasks

Fast Fact

An increase in dietary energy intake, or total calories, is essential to gain significant muscle mass. In other words, an athlete needs to consume approximately 200 to 500 extra calories daily (on top of current daily energy needs) to add a pound of muscle.

Fast Fact

While most teens can build muscle with proper strength training, it is important to build an age-appropriate workout program under the guidance of a personal trainer to avoid injury.

Fast Fact

Teens may want to strength train to improve sports performance, treat or prevent injuries, or improve appearance. Strength training (also called resistance training) is a way to build muscles and strength using free weights, weight machines, resistance bands, or a person’s own weight. 

Fast Fact

The best and most significant supplement for building muscles is whey protein concentrate. It has to be consumed post-workout as it leads to the recovery of muscles as well as further promotes the gaining of muscles.

Fast Fact

The stronger a muscle is, the greater potential it has to be explosive. Thus, hypertrophy training, if done correctly, can make an athlete stronger and more explosive. Second, hypertrophy training has an extremely beneficial effect on ligaments and tendons, which are often our weak links during sports performance.

INGREDIENTS

Maltodextrin

Glucose Source

Rapid Energy

Maltodextrin is a maize-derived carbohydrate that consists of chains of glucose molecules. It is a rapidly-digested and absorbed carbohydrate that serves as a rapid energy source. When used in conjunction with slower-digesting Palatinose™ and Waxy Maize starch, maltodextrin provides a more balanced energy profile.

Whey Protein

Waxy Maize Starch

Sustained Energy

The Whey Protein used by Bioteen in our products is a native whey protein concentrate made from whole milk that is free from antibiotics and hormones (rBHG).

Whey Protein is a dairy protein source that digests easily and rapidly. Whey protein is high-quality protein is one which possesses all the essential amino acids (EAA) and contains a sufficient amount of the branched chain amino acid (BCAA) leucine to augment muscle protein synthesis (MPS). Supplementation with whey protein in conjunction with a suitable exercise protocol has been shown to increase lean muscle mass.

Palatinose

Isomaltulose

Sustained Energy

Palatinose™ is a source of glucose and fructose to the body. Unlike other sugars, Palatinose™ digests and absorbs slowly thus providing the body with a steady supply of energy. The combination of Palatinose™ along with faster releasing fuels ensures sustained energy provision and prevents a pre-exercise energy dip that may come with consuming rapid sources alone.

Fibersol 2

Prebiotic Fiber

Gut Support

Fibersol®-2 is a high-quality plant based soluble fiber that acts as a prebiotic. Prebiotics are a vital source of ‘food’ for the bacterial population (microbiota) that live in the gut. This helps them to produce beneficial substances like short-chain fatty acids, which strengthen the physical gut barrier and regulate the immune response. A healthy gut also ensures that nutrients are properly absorbed.

Sports Nutrition

Minerals

Chelated Minerals

Immune Support

Bioteens LMB contains a blend of 8 highly bioavailable chelated minerals consisting of Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Iron, Copper, Chromium, Molybdenum and Boron. These minerals play essential roles like protein synthesis, the protection of cells against oxidative stress, the maintenance of normal muscle and immune function and assisting normal carbohydrate metabolism.

TVP

Multvitamin Blend

Energy & Vitality

Teen Vitamin Premix (TVP) is a blend of 12 highly bioavailable vitamins, consisting of Vitamin A, D3, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, Folic Acid and Biotin. These vitamins are involved in key functions that relate to health and muscle development like energy-yielding metabolism, protein metabolism, protein synthesis, red blood cell production and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

REVIEWS

7 reviews for Lean Muscle Builder

  1. Gillian Gernetzky (verified owner)

    I’m using this product to help my very skinny eight year old twins (dosage adjusted for their age) to gain weight. They’re both picky eaters and they love the taste. And mom’s happy that they’re getting the right nutrients at least one a day when they have their ‘hot chocolate’.

  2. Samantha Groenewald

    Excellent product. My son loves the taste and enjoys drinking after hockey practice and matches. It helps fill the gap between meals.

  3. Kathryn Kleynhans (verified owner)

    My son is playing soccer for the U19 TUKS team and he swears by this product. We get it regularly. He is only 16 so the supplement helps him to hold his own.

  4. Michelle (verified owner)

    My son has only been using it for a couple of weeks now. He has never been so keen on taking something that is so good for him.

  5. Sashika (verified owner)

    Tastes great! My son loves it.

  6. Lecia Durham (verified owner)

    Bought this for my son who does gym training three mornings a week. He is 13. He loves the flavour and taste as is (with milk) and also mixes it into smoothies. I love it because besides helping him to build muscle, it contains lots of dietary essentials I know he is not getting through regular eating.

  7. Efrat Mazor (verified owner)

    we have been using this for a while, my son uses it in the mornings or after gym training, he is only 14 so we are happy to go with the lean muscle mass protein option.
    He also LOVES the chocolate flavour and uses it as an in-between meals snack.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Gaining muscle as a teen does not mean turning into the Hulk, in fact, certain types of weightlifting, like powerlifting and bodybuilding, are not recommended for teens because they can cause serious injuries. Powerlifting (which focuses on how much weight a person can lift at one time) and bodybuilding (which concentrates on building muscle size and definition) are two sports generally left to the adults. However, building muscles and strength through appropriate strength training together with eating the right things can be a healthy way for teens to improve sports performance, treat or prevent injuries, or even improve their appearance and self-confidence.

 

With so many unregulated supplements out there, many parents are concerned that their impressionable teen may run into trouble with illegal additives like anabolic steroids. That’s why it is so important to equip your teen with the right information, from the right professionals paired with safe and functional nutritional supplements so that they can get measurable results the healthy way.

 

At Bioteen, we have created Lean Muscle Builder, which is formulated with a blend of native whey protein, fast and slow digesting carbohydrates, micronutrients, and prebiotics all geared to support the development of lean muscle mass. We have carefully chosen each ingredient in this product to serve a specific function, let’s explore how they all work together to give your teen maximal results.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whey protein a high-quality protein that is easy to absorb

Measuring scoop of whey protein on wooden table to prepare a milkshake. Concept of diet, health and exercise

Whey is a high biological value (HBV) milk protein which means it contains all 9 essential amino acids. HBV proteins are incredibly bioavailable or easily absorbed by the human body. The kind of whey we use at Bioteen (called native whey protein) (1), is special because it is made by filtering unprocessed milk which leaves the protein molecules intact and results in an end product that is high in the essential amino acid leucine. Leucine is particularly great for building muscles because it is both a signal and substrate for muscle protein synthesis (MPS), which is the metabolic process where amino acids are bound into the skeletal muscle proteins (2).

 

Stimulating MPS and having enough substrate available are key steps to growing and active teens muscle.

 

Carbohydrates provide energy and are protein sparing 

Because exercising uses up energy and the easiest way for the body to get this energy is by burning up carbohydrates, we have also included fast (Maltodextrin) and slow (Waxy Maize Starch and Palatinose®) digesting sources of carbohydrates in Bioteen’s Lean Muscle Builder.  Maltodextrin is a glucose polymer which releases energy first, aiming to boost blood sugar level and ensure that there is energy at the start of exercise (3), followed by Waxy Maize Starch which is a slowly digestible starch which gives prolonged energy availability and satiety (4) and  Palatinose® which is a smart carbohydrate that is made through the enzymatic rearrangement of linking bonds in beet sugar, which allows it to have a lower GI than traditional sucrose, essentially also providing a slow and sustainable source of energy (5). This unique combination of carbohydrates aims to give a steady supply of energy without the crash and ensures that the protein is used as a building block for muscle growth instead of as an energy source.

 

Whey, Fibersol-2® and our micronutrient mix support your teen’s immune system

Staying healthy is an important part of sporting performance, because a sick teen is not able to train and inadequate training can eventually affect performance. Whey protein is not only a good source of protein, which immune cells use to develop, grow and repair themselves, but it also contains biologically active molecules that may have a beneficial effect on immune health (6). To support the immune system further, we have included the prebiotic fiber Fibersol-2® to our Lean Muscle Builder®. Prebiotic fibers feed the various microbes in the gut who in return produce beneficial substances like short chain fatty acids, which strengthen the gut’s physical gut barrier and regulate the immune response. Prebiotics also have the ability to actively flush out invading pathogens, meaning that fewer are able to infiltrate the healthy body and cause illness (7). In addition to this, we have included a host of vital vitamins and minerals which not only support healthy energy metabolism and protein synthesis but support the immune system as well.

 

Our supplements are safe and third party tested

Unfortunately, one of the hard truths about the current supplement industry is that it is not very well regulated. This means that manufacturers are not obligated to disclose every ingredient they put in their products which can be a scary thought for parents, who only want the best for their teens! At Bioteen, we believe in full transparency. Not only do we source all the raw materials ourselves but to put your mind at ease we have also carefully selected third party certified contract manufacturers to produce our products. This means that you can be guaranteed that all the ingredients in the Bioteen range are safe to consume.

 

The bottom line

There are a number of reasons why strength training paired with proper nutrition and nutritional supplements can benefit your teen. Doing this isn’t always easy when you can’t trust all the supplements commonly found in store. At Bioteen, we’ve made it our mission to create supplements that are not only useful, but also safe and easy to incorporate into your teen’s day to day life. At the end of the day, fostering habits like consistent exercise and good nutrition early on becomes a great starting block for healthy habits later in life.
