If you want to maximize your genetic muscle-building potential without artificial hormones or synthetic ingredients, we formulated Protein Clinic for you.
Protein Clinic delivers science-backed results you can feel — whether you want to maximize muscle growth or prevent muscle loss with age.
Here are five reasons why Protein Clinic is unlike any protein shake or muscle builder you’ve seen:
Why You'll Love Protein Clinic™
1. Protein Clinic is an all-in-one shake for lean muscle repair, recovery, and growth.
It's supercharged with three clinically proven ingredients: myHMB®, Fortetropin®, and BodyBalance® collagen.
2. Protein Clinic also helps build joints, connective tissue, and even bones.
It contains amino acids, vitamins, and minerals that support connective tissue repair and bone mineralization.
3. Protein Clinic is made only from food-based, natural ingredients.
No hormones, synthetic ingredients, or banned substances.
4. Protein Clinic delivers 33 grams of high-quality protein per serving.
With only 4 grams of carbohydrates and 180 calories per serving.
5. Protein Clinic is a delicious, creamy shake that is also easy on your stomach.
Experts estimate that lactose intolerance affects up to 68% of the worldwide population.26 If milk-based protein powders don’t agree with your stomach, you are likely in this group. Protein Clinic is dairy-free and easy to digest. And it’s 100% naturally flavored. No artificial sweeteners, dyes, or preservatives.
Build more muscle and recover faster, naturally.
Even committed gym junkies lose 3% to 5% of their muscle mass each decade after turning 30. This adds up to an estimated 30% of muscle loss over a lifetime.44
This is a problem. And not just because you lose your sleeve-filling biceps and the ability to hoist heavy objects off the ground. Muscle loss with age shortens life expectancy.
A study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that “low muscle (mass and strength) was independently associated with elevated risk of all-cause mortality” among participants 50 years or older.46
Loss of muscle is one of the primary drivers of the aging process itself. Less muscle means lower strength levels and energy, and impaired recovery from exercise. It also leads to more frequent injuries and reduced physical function.
In short, regardless of age, we should be doing everything we can from a nutritional standpoint to maximize muscle building, maintenance, and cellular health.
The conventional view is that the primary driver of muscle loss with age is a reduction in muscle proteins built from amino acids. These amino acids come from protein that we eat and are also formed when we exercise.
But this is only part of the story.
More recent studies prove that your ability to build and maintain muscle is largely dependent on the rate of muscle protein breakdown and muscle protein turnover.45
By focusing only on protein synthesis, you are missing out on two-thirds of your muscle-building potential.
This is where Protein Clinic shines.
It pulls all three levers in this muscle-building equation, giving you an unfair advantage in the quest for muscle mass and strength.

Hacking the Muscle Building Equation
Muscle cell metabolism is complex. The equation for muscle building is not. It boils down to this:
Protein Synthesis (MPS) – Protein Breakdown (MPB) = Muscle Gain (or Loss)
If synthesis outpaces breakdown, muscles grow larger (muscle hypertrophy). If breakdown outpaces synthesis, muscle atrophy occurs.
While there are dozens of factors at play, there are three main variables in this equation.
This is precisely what Protein Clinic is designed to optimize.
Several peer-reviewed studies show that the patented ingredients in Protein Clinic:
Boost muscle protein synthesis1-14
Decrease muscle protein breakdown15-21
Optimize muscle protein turnover—the replacement of damaged cells for remodeling and rebuilding22-26
When you maximize the natural muscle-building potential of each of these three levers, you get a synergistic response that allows for rapid muscle recovery, repair, and growth.
Instead of hitting plateaus—or worse, losing muscle—over time, you can continue to consistently increase muscle size, strength, and overall health.
Proven Ingredients That Build Muscles and Joints
The last thing you want is bigger, stronger muscles on top of weak, injury-prone connective tissue scaffolding. That’s why Protein Clinic contains vitamins, minerals, and proteins that support strong connective tissue and bone structures.
Because tendons and ligaments rebuild more slowly than muscles, this is a key element of building muscle safely.
Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in Protein Clinic, starting with the pound-for-pound champion of safe, natural muscle-building supplements:
HMB (scientifically known as β-hydroxy β-methylbutyrate) is naturally produced in our bodies when we consume the amino acid leucine. It simultaneously decreases muscle protein breakdown and increases muscle protein synthesis.
But it’s virtually impossible to get the optimal amount of HMB from diet alone.
Research shows only around 5% of dietary leucine converts into the muscle-building compound HMB.
That means you would have to consume 60 grams of leucine, or 600 grams of quality protein, to get the clinically supported 3-gram dosage of HMB per day.1
Supplementing with myHMB® has been clinically shown to:
Increase muscle mass, improve strength, and reduce fat mass when combined with resistance training5, 6
Boost protein synthesis and reduce protein breakdown7
Reduce muscle damage and soreness from exercise8
Improve recovery by reducing damage associated with exercise (both resistance and endurance)9
Improve endurance by increasing maximal oxygen consumption and increasing lactic acid tolerance10, 11
Improve the muscle-building effects of plant-based protein12
Protein Clinic contains the clinically supported 3 grams of myHMB® per serving.
myHMB® may be the most clinically supported muscle-building ingredient in the world for both effectiveness and safety—backed by 50+ studies and 40+ scientific reviews.
While myHMB® is a powerful stand-alone muscle builder, you get a synergistic effect when you combine it with the other ingredients in Protein Clinic. It leaves basic proteins and amino acid drinks in the dust.
Fortetropin® is a natural muscle-building ingredient made from fertilized egg yolks. The patented manufacturing process protects bioactive nutrients found in egg yolks that are destroyed during conventional high-temperature cooking.
Fortetropin® enhances muscle building by reducing myostatin, a compound released in the body that inhibits muscle cell growth.
Myostatin is a protein that "puts the brakes" on the development of new muscle tissue. Lowering myostatin levels releases those "brakes" and enables your body to build more lean muscle.15
What makes Fortetropin® even more attractive as a muscle-building aid is that it's 100% food-based and natural. This is why top strength coaches and elite athletes have taken notice. You can find Fortetropin® in the locker rooms of top NBA, MLB, and NCAA (collegiate) teams.
Studies show supplementing with Fortetropin® can help:
Prevent rises in serum myostatin levels (especially after trauma) to help reduce muscle loss.18
Increase fractional protein synthesis rates (study of older adults) by up to 18% after 21 days19
Boost mTOR signaling, build lean muscle, and improve muscle recovery from resistance training20
The recommended daily dosage of Fortetropin® based on clinical data is 6.6 grams.
Each serving of Protein Clinic contains 3.3 g of Fortetropin® —roughly the equivalent of 1/3 egg yolk. It's the best combination of muscle growth support and affordability.
BodyBalance® is a targeted collagen peptide blend proven to help build lean muscle, increase connective tissue mass, and reduce fat mass when combined with resistance training.
Unlike generic collagen supplements with random peptide profiles, BodyBalance® is engineered to stimulate cell synthesis within intramuscular connective tissue and skeletal muscle.
Building big, strong muscles on the scaffolding of weak connective tissue structures is a recipe for injury. With BodyBalance®, you give your muscles and joints the nutrients they need to repair and grow stronger.
Supplementing with BodyBalance® collagen provides several unique benefits:
Increased lean body mass and reduced fat mass when combined with weight training (effective in both resistance-trained subjects and elderly subjects)24
Increased strength gains compared to placebo25
Increased connective tissue mass when combined with strength training23
Rich in the amino acids glycine and proline, which may help prevent muscle wasting
Digests easily compared to dairy-based proteins, which can cause gastrointestinal distress26
Protein Clinic contains 15 grams of BodyBalance® Bioactive Collagen Peptides per serving.
Mix two scoops into 10-12 ounces of water or milk once daily. For best results, use at least five days per week.
For post-workout nutrition, take one serving within 45 minutes of exercise. On non-training days, consume one serving early in the day (either prior to breakfast or between meals).
Q: How long do I have to take Protein Clinic™ to see results?
Building muscle takes time. This is why we recommend using Protein Clinic consistently for at least six weeks. However, you may notice changes in how fast your recover from exercise, your soreness levels, and overall muscular performance in just the first few weeks of using Protein Clinic.
Q: How much protein do I need to gain muscle?
As a simple rule, aim for 0.8 to 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight spread over 3-4 meals to optimize muscle growth. Consume at least 50% of your intake from whole foods. For a 150-pound person, this equals 120 to 150 grams per day.
If you have a high level of body fat, you may want to re-calculate your protein needs based on lean body mass.
More details on protein and muscle gain: Research shows that 1.2-1.7 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day, or 0.5 to 0.8 grams per pound of body weight, is the likely minimal amount of protein necessary for optimal muscle growth. Other studies show that more protein may be beneficial for some people.
You can come back stronger.
