Brief Overview: 

This product has been studied for support of skeletal muscle growth by inhibiting myostatin and enhancing follistatin. The (-)-epicatechin is the first compound ever researched to support modulation of both regulators of muscle growth increases in strength. The expression of follistatin has been associated with muscle hypertrophy by inhibiting the preventative effects of myostatin muscle growth.

Flavonoids occur naturally in fruit, vegetables, and beverages such as tea and wine. Since the discovery of the low cardiovascular mortality rate observed in Mediterranean populations in association with red wine consumption and a high saturated fat intake, research in the field of flavonoids has increased. (-)-Epicatechin is a flavonoid that is abundantly present in dark chocolate and green tea.
