This is the muscle builder that any and all bodybuilders should take. Whether a pro competitor to beginner, EpiMuscle will increase you ability to hit the next level of muscle gains.
Epicatechin is a bioactive flavanol found in trace amounts in green tea and cocoa. Research with epicatechin indicates that it increases levels of follistatin, a unique type of protein found in the muscle cells which binds to and inhibits the actions of myostatin in the body. Epicatechin increases follistatin and more follistatin equals less myostatin, which in turn means more muscle.
Animals lacking myostatin, either due to a defective gene or because they’ve been treated with compounds that inhibit production, show huge increases in muscularity. The limits of muscle growth are removed by the inhibition of myostatin.
Clinical studies with epicatechin show multiple physiological benefits, including:
- Enhanced muscle growth and strength
- Increased nitric oxide production-improving vascularity, blood flow and endurance
- Improved muscle insulin sensitivity
- Lowered total cholesterol levels
- Improved brain and heart health
Whether you’re looking to build muscle, burn fat or increase athletic performance, epicatechin is a worthwhile addition to your supplement arsenal, and because it’s non-hormonal, epicatechin can be used by both men and women with no side effects.
A clinical trial where older adults were given 50mg of epicatechin per day found that the follistatin/myostatin ratio increased 49% after only 7 days of supplementation . Another clinical trial found that 200mg of epicatechin per day improved endurance and prevented muscular fatigue by inhibiting the aerobic and mitochondrial succinate dehydrogenase adaptations that occur during exercise .
Animal studies support these finds. Epicatechin given to mice decreased myostatin by 18% and increased follistatin by 56%.
New research is looking at epicatechin as a way to prevent sarcopenia, a loss of muscle associated with age. In elderly human subjects, levels of myostatin decreased 28%, while follistatin increased 30% after only 7 days of treatment with epicatechin. Treatment with epicatechin also yielded a 7% increase in muscular strength .
Clinical research shows that a dosage of only 50mg/day is necessary to see results, but empirical usage suggests that epicatechin should be dosed at 1-2mg/kg of bodyweight. Feedback from users suggests that dosing at the higher end, around 250mg per day, is optimal to maximize the athletic and muscle building benefits.
EPIMUSCLE (epicatechin) will make any other muscle building ingredients you stack with it more effective. For example, you could stack EPIMUSCLE with arachidonic acid, Phytodrol (Laxogenin) and phosphatic acid.
|Week||EPIMUSCLE||Phytodrol||Arachidonic Acid||Phosphatic Acid|
|1||150-250 mg per day||100-150 mg per day||2,000-2,500 mg per day||500-750 mg per day|
|2||150-250 mg per day||100-150 mg per day||2,000-2,500 mg per day||500-750 mg per day|
|3||150-250 mg per day||100-150 mg per day||2,000-2,500 mg per day||500-750 mg per day|
|4||150-250 mg per day||100-150 mg per day||2,000-2,500 mg per day||500-750 mg per day|
|5||150-250 mg per day||100-150 mg per day||2,000-2,500 mg per day||500-750 mg per day|
|6||150-250 mg per day||100-150 mg per day||2,000-2,500 mg per day||500-750 mg per day|
|7||150-250 mg per day||100-150 mg per day||2,000-2,500 mg per day||500-750 mg per day|
|8||150-250 mg per day||100-150 mg per day||2,000-2,500 mg per day||500-750 mg per day|
The Bottom Line
Myostatin is the main genetic component that regulates muscle growth potential. Epicatechin is a bioactive flavanol that increases follistatin. More follistatin equals less myostatin, and less myostatin means more muscle. Epicatechin will make any other muscle building ingredients you stack with it more effective. You can stack epicatechin with natural muscle building ingredients like arachidonic acid and laxogenin.

I am still using my first bottle, but overall I'm very happy with it. Strength gains are steadily improving, Muscle size seems to be a lot fuller. Feel good.
I’ve been taking it for a couple of years now I definitely noticed the difference when I’m off it. So for the most part I’m on it year round. Sincerely Christian
It hasn't been quite a month yet however so far very good
