Known as a flavanol, epicatechin is found in foods like dark chocolate and blackberries as well as drinks such as green tea and wine. It works by increasing follistatin, a protein found in the muscles which bind to and control the myostatin, a growth factor that inhibits muscle growth. The additional follistatin lowers myostatin and therefore increases muscle mass.
Time after time, epicatechin has been proven to naturally enhance muscle growth and strength, improve endurance, reduce cholesterol levels, and increase insulin sensitivity. It may also improve heart and brain health.
To enjoy optimal results from epicatechin, however, your body needs 300 to 500 mg of it. Unfortunately, the typical absorption rate is a mere 16% so if you decide to take a traditional epicatechin supplement, there’s a good chance you’ll be disappointed. Fortunately, our epicatechin is one-of-a-kind and specifically formulated to ensure you receive the full benefits from this supplement.
