In the bodybuilding world, we talk about a lot of chemicals. From SARMs to prohormones, peptides and everything in between. Yet somewhere down the line after all the benefits we nearly always hear the term side effects. Well, not today guys… because epicatechin (also known as epicat) really is one of the good guys. What is epicatechin and is it really any good?

What is Epicatechin?
Epicat is a flavonol. This means a naturally occurring phytochemical and organic compound found in plants. Essentially it’s what puts the super in super food and it won’t surprise you to hear that it’s found in a good number of these from Green to Tea to Dark Chocolate.
What Does Epicat Do?
Don’t let its humble origins fool you, epicatechin is one serious bioactive. Over the years numerous studies have proved time and time again that Epicatechin can enhance muscle growth and strength as well as improving vascularity, blood flow and stamina.
Other benefits include its ability to boost the production of nitric oxide and increasing the sensitivity of insulin. All of which adds up to promoting muscle growth and burning fat. One study has found that daily supplementation with Epicatechin also increases endurance levels.
One of its most notable features, Epicatechin has powerful antioxidant properties which mean Epicat is a natural collateral leveller and has also been linked to improved brain function and healthier hearts.
How does Epicat Work?
Studies suggest that epicatechin is a natural myostatin inhibitor. Myostatin is a protein which effectively governs the limits of muscle growth. The magic comes from follistatin which is known to affect the levels of myostatin on the body and research indicates that epicatechin increases the body’s follistatin level.
In short, epicatechin reduces the effectiveness of myostatin and less effective myostatin means more muscle.
