EpiGro1000 - Swinney Nutrition
Epigro1000 has been formulated to increase muscle and reduce fat through the mechanisms of reducing myostatin and somatostatin inhibition. Epigro1000 has tripled the amount of epicatechin in the other leading brands. Epigro1000 also increases insulin sensitivity, and nutrient partitioning, as well. The favorable changes in body composition will also be accompanied by improvements in muscle contraction, growth and differentiation.
As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules two times per day.
The 2 capsule servings should take 2 capsules 3 three times per day.
Do not exceed 6 capsules in a 24 hour period unless directed otherwise by a healthcare professional.
Class: Myostatin inhibitor
What: A myostatin inhibitor, extracted from dark chocolate.
How: Epicatechin reduces myostatin by increasing follistatin levels. For some background one should know that myostatin is a protein that acts as a limiting factor in muscle growth. Follistatin signals the body to produce less myostatin. Decreases in myostatin then lead to great improvements in body composition and muscle mass. Not only that, but epicatechin improves pumps.
Class: Antioxidant, and somatostatin inhibitor.
What: Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is an antioxidant with the ability to reduce body fat and increase growth hormone.
How: EGCG increases insulin sensitivity by inhibiting an enzyme that breaks down the catecholamines such as norepinephrine and dopamine. This serves to reduce body fat, and inhibit fat cell production.
Class: Somatostatin inhibitor, and Nootropic.
What: Huperzine A acts as an inhibitor of somatostatin. It has also been demonstrated to improve attention and focus.
How: Huperzine A acts by inhibiting an enzyme (cholinesterase), which functions to limit acetylcholine levels. Acetylcholine is involved in learning, as well as muscle contraction, and huperzine a increases the amount of acetylcholine. Through this mechanism, somatostatin is also reduced. With the reduction of somatostatin hgh (somatropin) increases.
