You work hard in the gym, what you don’t need is limitations on how big you can get. After all, the bigger, the better, right? Competitive Edge Labs Epi-Plex can help you get there! How? It starts with myostatin, a type of protein that puts a ceiling on muscle growth. That means if you want serious muscle size, you need to inhibit myostatin so you can reach your full potential! Epi-Plex helps you do just that!
Competitive Edge Labs Epi-Plex Ingredient Highlights
Epicatechin - 300 mg
Epicatechin is a flavonol that occurs naturally in green tea and dark chocolate. It stimulates muscle growth by inhibiting myostatin. As we have seen, myostatin controls how big your muscles can get. Put another way, it limits muscle growth. Epicatechin blocks myostatin so you can raise the ceiling on your muscle growth potential. It’s thought that it does this by increasing levels of follistatin, a protein that helps regulate muscle growth.
It has a reverse relationship with myostatin. As we get older, myostatin levels increase, and follistatin decreases. Epicatechin helps offset this, thereby limiting myostatin, which in turn frees up muscle growth. The effective range of this impressive compound is 200mg to 300 mg, we dosed it at its most potent - 300 mg! (1, 2)
Piperine Black Pepper Extract - 20 mg
Piperine improves the absorption of the nutrients it’s paired with. In this case, it further enhances the effectiveness of epicatechin, so you experience the best possible results.
