Plasma Muscle is apparently the third in line in Muscletech’s triology series, the first two being Phospha Muscle and Clear Muscle.
Plasma Muscle is marketed as the most powerful pill for pre-work out and building lean muscle by Muscletech. The unique thing about Plasma Muscle is its formula which includes a variety of different extracts from different exotic plants, as well as ATP (molecule which transports energy within cells).
The manufacturers of Plasma Muscle claim its effectiveness and ensure to provide results because of its unique blend of ingredients. Peak ATP is itself used as a supplement by sports athletes and body builders to train harder and longer with more efficiency and desirable results. Of course by combining a sports nutritional supplement with proven natural ingredients that boost muscle power, Plasma Muscle has taken the athletes and body builder community by storm.
The Secret Formula
The ingredients utilized in Plasma Muscle are patented sports supplements called as Peak ATP and OptiNOs. Breaking down the constituents of these two products, the main ingredients of Plasma Muscle are as follows:
- Cissus (veldt grape) extract
- Curcuma (turmeric) extract
- Bishop’s weed (ajowan) extract
Unlike many supplement manufacturers, Muscletech has revealed their highly researched workable formula for increasing muscle endurance, power and strength. The effects of Peak ATP have been researched by the University of tampa and it has been shown to play a major role in muscle building and increasing muscle strength and endurance. Peak ATP increases the levels of extracellular ATP, which are required for stimulating growth of muscles and muscle excitability.
As for OptiNOs, it contains an extract of natural ingredients which show that they plan a major role in activating the mTOR (mechanistic target of rapamycin) pathway, which is one of the most widely researched muscle building pathway. But the thing is – the research is actually carried out by Muscletech itself! Currently, there are no biased opinions on the validity of this research, but no other research exists on OptiNOs.
It would be a much better and safer option when the product is backed not only by the company’s own research, but also that which is conducted by non-interested third parties.
Other ingredients include sesame oil and capsule (gelatin, FD&C Red No. 40).
Due to extensive research and clinical trials, following benefits of Plasma Muscle are claimed for by Muscletech:
- 147% more strength
- 30% more power
- 4 times more reps
- Increase in muscle thickness by 96%
- Increase in fatigue resistance and muscle endurance
- Improves pumps and reps
- Gain 8.8 lbs of lean muscle
Most of the above mentioned benefits are as a consequence of using Peak ATP in Plasma Muscle. These benefits are published through research performed by University of Tampa on Peak ATP.
According to the manufacturer, Plasma Muscle should be taken 30 to 45 minutes before your workout session. Take 3 capsules daily for the best results.
On days when you are not training or working out, take 3 capsules on an empty stomach before breakfast. Just make sure to not exceed the dose greater than 3 capsules in a 24-hour period.

Potential Side Effects
Increased levels of ATP in the body may fire up uric acid levels which may trigger gout. Gout causes swollen, painful, hot and tender joints. The joint which is most affected by gout is the one which is present at the base of the big toe. However, no such effects have been reported with Plasma Muscle, but it is better to be safe and not increase the recommended dosage for this supplement.
Both the patented ingredients used in Plasma Muscle are backed by research, but that on Peak ATP is more solid. The research on OptiNOs is only conducted by Muscletech which adds a conflict of interest – even though the validity or credibility of the research is not denied. But this fact should be taken into consideration before making the marketed expectations from Plasma Muscle. However, Peak ATP alone is also capable of being an effective sports nutritional supplement.
