  » Editor Review:Myostatin Blockers

Myostatin 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.

Unfortunately, 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 is.

Simply put, this supplement is a crock of crap. No-one I've spoken to has had any success with this supplement. Avoid it.
