A scientific look

Getting the right body is easier said than done. You need the right workout plan, the right diet, and of course, a lot of focus

Add to the abundance of supplements on the market today, and things can get confusing. So when we released our brand new Matrix Armour, James Pickering thought it would be a good idea to explain how it works.

Here is the why, how and when of Matrix Armour.


Matrix Armour is a supplement that will help to reduce recovery times so that you can train more frequently and with more effort either by increasing intensity or volume. This means you can aim for continual improvement by increasing total workload and progressive overload each week.

Matrix Armour is perfectly suited to create optimal body composition by helping to create a hormonally efficient body by providing ingredients which can help to facilitate a fully functioning endocrine system.


Matrix Armour has five main components to keep you fighting fit to shoot for those personal bests, week in, week out.

1. DOMS prevention:
High doses of the amino acids, L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine aid the recovery process by stimulating protein synthesis. It also contains Vitamin C which has anti catabolic properties to prevent muscle damage.

2. Joint Protection:
Glucosamine and Chondroitin provide dual action joint protection and repair. Chondroitin is a substance that occurs naturally in the connective tissues of people and animals, and is a popular treatment for osteoarthritis. Glucosamine is a building block of cartilage and joint tissue and is rarely found in natural food sources.

3. Liver Support:
Milk thistle has been shown to significantly improve liver function in studies, which is important as a healthy and fully functioning liver is essential for a healthy body with optimal body composition.

4. Antioxidant Formula:
Green Tea extracts present in Matrix Armour provides crucial antioxidants to combat oxidative stress caused by the body during intense bouts of exercise. If you are training regularly and with intensity you are putting stresses on your body that you are not used to, you will be putting more stress on your Central Nervous System (CNS) and have increased oxidative stress and free radical damage. Green Tea extracts can combat these negative effects as it is a powerful natural antioxidant.

5. Cognitive Support:
Matrix Armour contains L-tyrosine, an amino acid which has been reported to show acute effects in preventing the decline in cognitive function in response to physical stress.


Matrix Armour does not benefit from being taken at any specific time frame within the day. Pre or post workout might make the most sense, just for ease of use. Ultimately anytime that is convenient will suffice as it is non-stimulatory.
