- Bioactive Ursolic Acid
- Natural Anabolic & Anti-Catabolic
- Stimulates Muscle Growth
- Increases Strength
It’s not that often that a new, natural compound comes along with promises of muscle growth, strength, and body re-composition that actually works. However, that’s about to change! Recent clinical research has resulted in the discovery of the powerful anabolic and anti-catabolic benefits of ursolic acid.
What is ursolic acid? It’s a phytochemical that’s primarily found in holy basil, apple peels, and other plants. Initial research has indicated that this potent compound has anabolic and anti-catabolic properties - not only has it been shown to increase muscle mass and strength, it’s also been shown to help preserve muscle mass while in a fasted state. Additionally, it’s been shown to support body re-composition.
Initial animal studies using mice determined that ursolic acid had anti-catabolic affects - the mice that were given ursolic acid experienced less catabolism than those mice that did not receive ursolic acid. Additional studies using mice that ran for 5 weeks demonstrated that those mice given ursolic acid gained muscle mass and strength while the mice given a placebo did not, indicating anabolic effects.
Ok, sounds good but what about real studies using human test subjects?
One study using real human test subjects was conducted for 8 weeks. Test subjects received a 150mg dose of ursolic acid three times a day with meals while following a resistance training program.
At the end of the 8 weeks, it was determined that ursolic acid was able to increase circulating IGF-1 levels by 22.8% when compared to the placebo. Additionally, it was determined that ursolic acid-enhanced muscle insulin/ IGF-1 signaling, which resulted in Akt activation, muscle growth, and reduced fat levels. So it was determined that Ursolic acid increases muscle in part by enhancing the IGF-I and insulin receptors.
Enough science! It’s clear that ursolic acid is both an anabolic and anti-catabolic compound that works through multiple pathways. So, where can you get this exciting new compound? Leave it to AST Sports Science to create the most effective ursolic acid supplement on the market – Urso-X!
