Nutrient partitioning is a term used to describe how both macronutrients and micronutrients are transported into the cells (muscle cells and fat cells). When you eat food, the nutrients are either burned off as energy, or they are stored for later use. Nutrient repartitioners are designed to redirect nutrients to muscle cells and away from the fat cells. By doing so, they are said to spark new muscle growth. These products are also thought to increase glycogen stores, enhance future hypertrophy and increase your work capacity and recovery. Nutrient partitioning also involves multiple systems of the body – including the central nervous system, brain, liver, muscles, gut and hormones. As a result, they could help promote general health as well as muscle growth.
