One of the key ingredients in Hi-5 is HICA, which in one particular study aided the subjects in gaining an average of 0.88 lb of lower-body lean mass. In contrast, those taking a placebo actually lost lean mass.*
HICA is a powerful non-hormonal, natural support for muscle growth.* Magnum Hi-5 contains Leucic Acid, also known as Alpha-hydroxy-isocaproic acid (HICA), a natural metabolite of the branched chain amino acid, Leucine.
HICA works by increasing the rate of protein synthesis, and decreasing the rate of muscle protein breakdown.* In addition, claims also include muscle and strength support, increased recovery from workouts, and reduced muscle soreness. Its mechanism of action has been suggested as an independent mTOR signal transducer, which is a “cell-signaler” for muscle protein synthesis (anabolism). Leucic Acid also interrupts muscle protein breakdown by activating nuclear factor kappa B and inhibiting caspase-8. It may also activate IGF-1, a growth factor that helps age-related decreases in your body’s growth hormone output.*
This specialized amino acid can reduce muscle breakdown, especially during intense training and dieting. One Finnish study suggests that competitive wrestlers who were training three times a day and taking HICA had less delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and were able to gain two pounds of muscle despite the overtraining.* In a follow-up study, the Finnish researchers reported that soccer players who took HICA for four weeks during an intensive training period also had less DOMS than the placebo group. HICA users also gained a pound of muscle on their legs while the placebo group lost a pound.*
Other key ingredients in Magnum Hi-5 such as Leucine, L-Carnitine L-Tartrate and Rhodiola Rosea have been clinically studied and suggested to increase your body’s ability to recover and fight stress.*
magnum hi-5 is designed to help:
- Protect your muscles from catabolism*
- Reduce your delayed onset muscle soreness*
- Accelerate your lean muscle gains*
- Increase your anaerobic and aerobic capacity*
- Increase fat loss*
Research suggests that increasing the concentration of Leucine in an EAA supplement consumed during steady state exercise elicits a greater muscle protein synthesis response during recovery, promoting faster and more complete muscle recovery.*
Leucine-enriched essential amino acid supplementation during moderate steady state exercise enhances post exercise muscle protein synthesis.*
Authors: Stefan M Pasiakos
Source: Am J Clin Nutr September
This randomized crossover study examined whether EAA supplementation with 2 different concentrations of leucine affected post–steady state exercise MPS, whole-body protein turnover, and mammalian target of rapamycin 1 (mTORC1) intracellular signaling.
Muscle protein synthesis was 33% greater after consumption of Leucine+Essential Amino Acids than after consumption of Essential Amino Acids alone. Whole-body protein breakdown and synthesis were lower and oxidation was greater after consumption of Leucine+Essential Amino Acids than after consumption of Essential Amino Acids alone.*
These findings suggest that increasing the concentration of Leucine in an Essential Amino Acid supplement such as Hi-5 consumed during steady state exercise elicits a greater Muscle Protein Synthesis response during recovery.*

L-Carnitine L-tartrate is the supplement form of carnitine, which is found in almost all of your body's cells and is particularly concentrated in skeletal tissue. It plays a crucial role in helping your body burn, or oxidize, fat for fuel. So that your body can use fat as an energy source, carnitine transports long-chain fatty acids into specialized fuel manufacturing centers called mitochondria. Once inside, the mitochondria can burn the fatty acids to produce energy. In addition, carnitine helps transport waste compounds out of the mitochondria to prevent accumulation.*
Because deficiencies have been linked to a definite impairment of muscle function, there have been numerous studies performed on carnitine’s role in supplementation.
L-Carnitine L-tartrate supplementation favorably affects markers of recovery from exercise stress.*

L-Carnitine is a nutrient that helps turn body fat into energy. By releasing fat into your bloodstream, it’s possible for carnitine to assist with burning more body fat and helping you with your weight loss efforts. The L-Tartrate version of L-Carnitine has been shown to be superior to L-Carnitine for muscle recovery and maintaining a hormonal balance. L-Carnitine L-Tartrate promotes an appropriate hormonal balance by improving androgen receptor activity. Its ability to promote recovery from high intensity exercise makes it a dual threat as a training and fat loss aid.*
Researchers examined the influence of L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (LCLT) on markers of purine catabolism, free radical formation, and muscle tissue disruption after squat exercise. 10 resistance-trained men consumed a placebo or LCLT supplement for 3 weeks before obtaining blood samples on six consecutive days (D1 to D6). Blood was also sampled before and after a squat protocol (5 sets, 15-20 repetitions) on D2. Muscle tissue disruption at the mid-thigh was assessed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) before exercise and on D3 and D6 compared with placebo. These MRI scans showed a 45% decrease indelayed onset muscle soreness (muscle tissue disruption) in comparison to the placebo area.*
The addition of L-Carnitine L-tartrate in Hi-5 will help your body burn more fat for fuel, promote healthy hormonal balance by supporting androgen receptor activity, and speed up recovery post training while decreasing the level of delayed onset muscle soreness.*
"we care about what we put in our bodies"
Muscular energy, anti-fatigue, anti-catabolic, maximized blood flow to working tissue, improved recovery, and supporting immune function are all actions that set Magnum Hi-5 at the top of the amino acid category.*
But even beyond Hi-5’s amazing functions is its groundbreaking, top of the food-chain ingredient profile, and raw material selection. Every ingredient in Hi-5 is high quality and every amino acid comes exclusively from fermentation. This means zero human hair or bird feather derived amino acids were used when manufacturing Hi-5. Yes, you read that correctly, amino acids are sometimes derived from human hair and bird feathers, and that human hair has been known to come from prisoners in far off lands. We manufactured Hi-5 with 100% fermented amino acids because we care about what we put in our bodies and we know that Magnum customers care as much as we do. *
Rhodiola rosea root is a well-known adaptogen (able to relieve/increase resistance to stress). There are many active ingredients present in Rhodiola which may affect the levels and activity of neurotransmitters and hormones responsible for emotions and feelings of wellness. Rhodiola is able to increase endurance exercise performance as well as liberating more energy for exercise and relieving stress. Rhodiola also helps protect muscle tissue during exercise by reducing levels of C-reactive protein (an inflammatory marker), and creatinine kinase (a marker of muscle damage).*
Effect of extracts from Rhodiola rosea and Rhodiola crenulata (Crassulaceae) roots on ATP content in mitochondria of skeletal muscles.*
Authors:Abidov M, Crendal F, Grachev S, Seifulla R, Ziegenfuss T.
Source: Bull Exp Biol Med. 2003 Dec;136(6):585-7.
Researchers studied the effects of oral treatment with extracts from Rhodiola rosea and Rhodiola crenulata roots on the duration of exhaustive swimming and ATP content in mitochondria of skeletal muscles. Treatment with R. rosea extract significantly (by 24.6%) prolonged the duration of exhaustive swimming in comparison with the control group and the R. crenullata group. R. rosea extract activated the synthesis or resynthesis of ATP in mitochondria and stimulated reparative energy processes after intense exercise. R. rosea is most effective for improving physical working capacity.*
Studies suggest that Rhodiola rosea is the only form of Rhodiola effective in promoting increases in skeletal muscle ATP, thus facilitating an increase in the speed of recovery post workout. Magnum Hi-5 uses only Rhodiola rosea in its formulation for the best possible results.*

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How quickly can I expect results from Magnum Primer?
Many consumers say they feel an increase in energy and wellbeing in as little as five to ten days.* Remember that this product is providing the building blocks for every cell in your body.
How quickly can I expect results from Magnum Hi-5?
You should start to see results in your first week to 10 days of training.*
What results can I expect from taking Magnum Hi-5?
Reported results include better/quicker recovery and less muscle soreness on day two following anaerobic training. Better muscular pumps, better muscular endurance, and leaner, tighter muscles are also all reported results after implementing Hi-5 into your supplement regime.*
Will I get anxiety and/or jitters from Magnum Hi-5?
No. Magnum Hi-5 does not contain any stimulants and as such can be taken at any time of the day.*
Why have Adaptogens been added to Magnum Hi-5?
Adaptogens are a variety of plants that may be used alone or in combination with one another. It is thought that these whole herbs, when used alone or in combination, promote the balancing of the endocrine (hormone) system and boost the immune system.* In this way, the herbs are thought to promote homeostasis, or a state of balance and stability, in the body. In the 1940s, Dr. Nikolai Lazarev defined adaptogens in a way that made sense to Western systems of herbalism and medicine. Lazarev coined the term "adaptogen" to mean an agent that supports the body's ability to resist stress by countering undesired stressors, whether physical, chemical, emotional, or biological. Since weight training and competitive sports are very strong physical stressors, the adaptogens in Hi-5 have been added to aid in quicker and more complete recovery from training and competing.*
Why did Magnum choose to use fermented amino acids in Hi-5?
Well, unknown to most supplement buyers, some of the amino acids they’ve been consuming in recent years are from human hair (with a large portion of this coming from prisoners in other countries) or a combination of human hair and bird feathers. At Magnum we are very particular about what we choose to put in our bodies and as science progresses so to do our options. For years Magnum customers have asked why we haven’t launched an amino acid drink and our answer was always, “We can’t yet create the formula we want to put our name on.” but now, with the advances in fermentation technology we’re able to launch with 100% fermented amino acids and zero human hair or bird feather derived amino acids.
What is the optimal way to take Magnum Hi-5?
We recommend that you take 1 scoop 30 minutes prior to your workout or, alternately, 1 scoop during your workout as an “inter” workout supplement.*
Are there any products you recommend to take with Magnum Hi-5?
Yes, Magnum Hi-5 has been formulated to work synergistically with many Magnum products but some suggestions would be to stack Hi-5 with Big C, Thrust, Rocket Science, and Magnum Serum for an amazing stack.*
