Project AD Matador has been at the forefront of the glucose disposal agent (GDA) market for a number of years now and there is a simple reason for this… it has a loyal fan base that swears by the product and its effectiveness.
GDA’s are designed to help your body respond to the consumption of carbohydrate in the best way possible, to control blood glucose levels and to ensure that they are stored efficiently as glycogen. This means that Matador is an ideal supplement to be used during an off-season, to promote leaner muscle gains, during dieting phases to make the most of high carb days and for ‘carbing up’ for physique contests to ensure the muscles are as ‘full’, pumped and vascular as possible.
Claims and benefits made by Project AD about Matador
Project AD claim that there are many benefits to using Matador and these include maximising the ‘anabolic drive’ of carbohydrates into the muscles whilst limiting the spill over to unwanted body fat. It achieves this by improving insulin sensitivity, the body’s cellular response to elevated levels of insulin after consuming carbohydrates, meaning they are stored more efficiently whilst controlling blood glucose and insulin levels.
Matador uses 8 ‘research-driven’ all natural ingredients that are combined in effective doses to improve insulin sensitivity, control blood glucose level and initiate rapid formation of glycogen. It is therefore suitable for both gaining lean muscle and dieting phases.
Project AD Matador ingredients
Matador’s ability to help your body handle carbohydrates efficiently is broken down into four components; Insudrive Blend, Glycoform Blend, Supreme Berberine Complex, which create Matadors GDA properties, plus a Bioperine Complex which increases the bioavailability of the ingredients present in Matador.
The Insudrive Blend contains Gymnema Sylvestre Leaf Extract (GSE) and Sodium-R-Alpha-Lipoic Acid (SRLA). GSE contains active compounds called gymnemic acids, these acids regulate the uptake of glucose in the intestines, preventing excessive amounts of glucose appearing in the blood stream at any one time. It also acts to support the pancreas in the efficient production of insulin to help with glucose storage. SRLA functions in the body include helping in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. In regard to carbohydrate, SRLA helps to promote insulin sensitivity, helping the uptake of glucose into our muscles whilst regulating insulin levels and maintaining a proper insulin response.
The Glycoform blend contains a number of plant extracts including Bitter Melon, Cinnamon Bark, Prickly Pear and Fenugreek. These extracts help to improve insulin sensitivity and fenugreek, in particular, contains a compound called 4-Hydroxyisoleucine, which is known for its insulin sensitising effects
Last but not least, the Supreme Berberine complex contains 97% berberine, which is a well-researched ingredient that has strong anti-diabetic effects, through promoting uptake of glucose into the cells.
CSN's recommended dosage
Matador is best taken with carb heavy meals to maximise the effectiveness of glucose regulation and uptake. One serving with each high carb meal when ‘carbing up’, or taken with cheat meals and meals with high carbohydrate intake (post-workout for example), will maximise the effectiveness of Matador.
Each tub contains 60 capsules, with a typical serving size of 1 capsule. Each serving should adequately deal with 40-60g of carbohydrate, so for more carbohydrate rich meals then doses can be increased as required.
As the components of this product are very effective, it should not be taken if people are using any other prescription medication, especially medication taken to regulate blood glucose levels.
Can it be stacked with any other sports supplements?
As Matador can be used for both muscle building and losing body fat it can be safely stacked with a number of different supplements.
For muscle building we can combine it with Project AD’s Tauro-test, to maximise our natural hormone levels and Ravenous, which can help our digestive system efficiency and allows us to handle higher food volumes without digestive discomfort.
For weight loss Tauro-test can also be sued to maintain our hormone levels, which can suffer under periods of caloric restriction, and the addition of a fat burner, such as Shredabull Untamed, can accelerate fat loss and support physical and mental performance.
Summary of Project AD's Matador
Matador continues to be one of CSN’s most popular products and has consistently gained positive reviews from the people that use it. It is for this reason that Matador continues to be one of the markets leading GDA’s and has been for a number of years now, which is a testament to the loyal following, this, and other Project AD products have gotten.
Matador combines ingredients that are supported by some solid research that will help to control blood glucose, insulin levels and promote the efficient uptake and synthesis of glycogen whilst potentially limiting unwanted body fat gain. This makes Matador one of the few products that have potential benefit for those who are looking to either lose body fat, build muscle or to refuel the body in the most efficient way possible.
