is a gene that inhibits muscle
growth. Scientistics, in clinical
experiments, genetically engineered
mice to remove this gene - and
the mice became absolutely massive.
So massive they were barely recognizable
anymore (search the pictures on
Google, you'll see what I mean). Anyway, the theory goes that if
you "inhibit" myostatin,
you'll increase muscle growth.
this is only a pipe dream. Myostatin
inhibitors are based on a sort
of seaweed substance that apparently
binds to myostatin... but only
maybe. The science here is really sketchy; even a scientist
would admit that they have no
real idea what the relationship
between myostatin and muscle growth
Simply put, this supplement
is a crock of crap. No-one I've
spoken to has had any success
with this supplement. Avoid it.
