(-)-Epicatechin PhytoFUSETM: Epicatechin is a flavanol found in cocoa seeds and green tea, that has been heavily studied in recent years, and has demonstrated numerous benefits through its multifaceted effects on the body. Importantly, it has been shown to potentially act as a myostatin inhibitor. As previously noted, myostatin is a protein that inhibits muscle cell growth and differentiation, so blocking its action is beneficial to those seeking additional muscle mass. Research shows that this is achieved through its ability to increase follistatin, a protein which binds to and inhibits myostatin, by 2.5 times!
(+)-Epicatechin: The most abundant naturally occurring epimers in cacao or green tea are (+)-catechin and (-)-epicatechin. However, another lesser known and significantly less abundant compound (+)-epicatechin is also present and greatly differs in its biological effects when compared to (-)-epicatechin. In addition, (+)-epicatechin has been shown to be substantially more potent in lowering the elevated triglycerides in animal models, which means it can provide very strong support for a healthy lipid profile and cardiovascular system function. Additionally, recent research has shown that it potently improves neurogenesis markers likely through the stimulation of capillary formation, nitric oxide triggering which results in improved memory.
α-Ionone: Ionones are part of the family of compounds known as rose ketones, they are aroma compounds found in small quantities in a variety of essential oils and fruits such as raspberries. Ionones can be found in three different forms including alpha, beta and gamma. Due to their intense aroma, they are common ingredients in various fragrances, cosmetics and flavoring additives in foods.
Abscisic Acid: A naturally occurring isoprenoid compound that was originally identified in plants in the 1960s. It is a major phytohormone that regulates numerous aspects of plant growth, development and stress responses.
It has been shown to be a potent glucose disposal agent, resulting in improved glucose tolerance and reduces insulin levels in Humans and rats through an insulin-sparing independent mechanism, stimulates muscle glucose uptake through enhancing AMP-K and GLUT-4 Expression, independent of Insulin and improves muscle glycogen content.
Chromium Picolinate: An essential mineral that has been shown to regulate insulin in the body. It undertakes this function through a protein called Chromodulin that augments the signalling of insulin receptors; if this protein is impaired then insulin’s ability to function is greatly compromised.
