Description

What is (-)- Epicatechin 90%?

(-)- Epicatechin is a bioactive flavanol found in trace amounts in many foods including green tea and dark chocolate. While different food sources have different levels of (-)- Epicatechin, dark chocolate contains some of the highest levels while pure cocoa contains the highest amounts at almost 3mg of (-)- Epicatechin per gram.

(-)- Epicatechin is most commonly used as a workout supplement as it may support follistatin volume, which hinders myostatin signaling, thus allowing (-)- Epicatechin to indirectly promote muscle growth. However, (-)- Epicatechin has some lesser known benefits to cognition as well. Several studies indicate that (-)- Epicatechin can help promote blood flow and has notable benefits to cognitive tasks like memory and executive function. Some of these studies also suggest that (-)- Epicatechin may demonstrate synergistic effects with other compounds that support blood flow and cognitive function. Let’s dive deeper into (-)- Epicatechin benefits!

(-)- Epicatechin 90% Benefits and Uses

    • May help support cardiovascular function
    • May help promote strength and muscle function
    • May help support feelings of well being
    • May help promote cognitive function

(-)- Epicatechin 90% Bodybuilding

An in vitro study was conducted to measure the effect of (-)- Epicatechin extract on myostatin levels in old and young muscle tissues. The study’s findings determined that as people age, muscles tend to contain higher myostatin levels and lower follistatin levels. The same study looked at the follistatin and myostatin levels in old and young mice to confirm the age-related difference. The mice were given an (-)- Epicatechin supplement twice a day. After two weeks, results found notable myostatin regulation with overall support to follistatin levels. A similar study was conducted to measure myostatin and follistatin levels in humans. Six participants supplemented an (-)- Epicatechin supplement twice a day. Results found overall support of follistatin levels, however researchers also noticed that myostatin levels seemed regulated as well.

(-)- Epicatechin bodybuilding communities praise the compound for its potential to support muscle growth. Even though (-)- Epicatechin is a non-hormonal compound, some studies found that (-)- Epicatechin extract may help support testosterone levels in the body. Anecdotally, (-)- Epicatechin bodybuilding enthusiasts reported feeling more energized and stronger than they normally would without taking (-)- Epicatechin. Bodybuilders who have used (-)- Epicatechin for muscle growth have hypothesized that it promotes strength and seems to stimulate new muscle tissue growth, even on days they aren’t in the gym. However, as mentioned previously, most of these findings are completely anecdotal and haven’t been confirmed through a testing process specifically evaluating (-)- Epicatechin for muscle growth. More (-)- Epicatechin research is needed to fully understand the beneficial impact (-)- Epicatechin has on humans.

    Quality product

    I take epicatetchin in combination with ashwaghanda and laxogenin as a work out stack (stackz n gainz bro!) I find epicatiechin gives me a slight edge in combination with other products versus with out anything at all. Nothing crazy.. but I feel it does work and in combination with other supliments it all adds up . If you are going to buy epicatetchin Nootropics depot has some of the best I've came across.

    YMMV

    It felt like I experienced an increase in appetite, whereas some studies that I have read suggest that appetite should be inhibited.

    Seems effective for adding lean muscle.

    Ive struggled so freaking hard to put on lean muscle. Ill get a little stronger, but Ill stay the exact same weight. This product is giving me hope in that regard. It DEFINITELY makes me feel more sore after a workout. I really wouldnt take this on any day other than the final day of the workout week, with two full days to recover after taking. Of course, Im more of a full body workout kind of guy. You could probably make this supplement work as a more regular thing if you religiously isolate muscle groups to certain days. But for me, the effect is too serious to be taken as a daily workout supplement like agamtine sulfate and the likes (which is a kick ass ND supplement that if youre new to this you absolutely need). It will have you feeling sore, sort of like the way you would on the first day of a sports season. It really seems like its just helping the muscles to blow themselves out so they can rebuild more than they normally would after. I really recommend taking one suggested dose on your final day of working/working out, like in your workout drink or something (you should buck up and take it sublingually like me), and then another suggested dose around dinner time as you cram down your protein. The fact that I blatantly feel it working and doing what its more or less supposed to do makes this an instant full 10 out of 10 product for me. And this is the perfect department to turn to an entirely natural and plant based supplement, too. Best of luck out there bros!!

    Complex Supplement

    This is a hard supplement to evaluate or review, however it's benefits are profound and diverse enough to warrant a positive review. This is marketed generally for muscle growth and or workouts. I purchased this based off another review on here that I feel is mostly accurate. I am always interested in anything related to green tea or cocoa, which I believe this is mostly derived from if I am not mistaken. I have noticed several benefits such as immune boost, energy, and other balanced vitals. It can be very subtle some days and other days more profound. I can cause me to be drowsy or relaxed at times as well. I think it depends heavily on what else you are taking like other supplements, coffee, or time of day. Overall I am very satisfied. I would like a better value container, like more of it at a discount. However, I am sure that the price is based off things that make it fixed and has nothing to do with ND. It is a relatively costly compound in general. I generally am pleased with ND's cost and quality. The market for these compounds are generally very complex. Nootropics Depot is my preferred place for quality supplements. Thank you.

    Outstanding -- in 20 years the best, most transformative supplement I've ever taken

    I've a life-long, experienced supplement and nootropics user, I do it as much for curiosity about human biology and pharmacology than for expectations of finding substances which actually benefit health or cognition. Most things I've honestly found to be of minimal use for young, healthy, smart individuals. Epicatechin has blown my expectations out of the water. I can't report on any enhancements with regard to lean mass yet. But the effects in my energy levels and well-being are simply unbelievable. In fairness, I'm also supplementing Tongat Ali, but that wasn't doing anything appreciable until I started taking epicatechin. Only other supps at the moment are Gotu Kola and EGCG. My thinking seems distinctly clearer. And I'm sleeping only 3-4 hours a night! Which is roughly half of my usual requirement. I recommend taking piperine (or St. Mary's Thistle (silymarin)) as an adjuvant alongside epi to enhance bioavailability.

    Amazing!

    I’m beyond excited that ND carried this supplement... between mushroom powders, NMN, and this one, I fly through the day and at times forget to take my other vitamins that I feel I don’t even need anymore. Will definitely come back for more.

    Most Underrated Supplement

    I am beyond stoked that nootropicsdepot decided to carry (-)Epicatechin. I've tried almost every supplement out there and know the few that make a difference and the many that don't... (-) epicatechin is special. There are so many supplement companies on amazon selling fake Epi that I was hoping ND would one day carry it. Props to them! Let me just say that there is so much more to this supplement than just the exercise benefits. In fact I've got about a half a dozen reasons I take this supplement and that's not even on the list (though it's definitely a wonderful perk). The reason I take this supplement is because of the incredible health and cognitive benefits I've personally experienced with it. I'm not making any medical claims, just sharing my experience. I first encountered epicatechin when finding a bottle from a discontinued brand in the clearance section at some supplement store for like 80% off about 5 years ago. So I thought, "why not give it a try?" I honestly had incredibly low expectations. What I experienced over the next few months was almost unbelievable and completely unexpected. I had terrible allergies that began to disappear when I combined this with quercetin (quercetin alone did not have the same effect). I had regular unexplained heart palpitations that sent me to the emergency room that all of the sudden disappeared when taking this. Brain fog decreased, memory increased, stress went down and my overall wellbeing was simply night and day better. I went from feeling very unhealthy and unwell to feeling normal again, and this supplement played a massive role in that! Whenever I stopped taking it, my symptoms would return. I've tried every brand out there and ND blows away the competition when it comes to Epi. Obviously I'm not claiming epicatechin will have such a drastic effect on everyone, but I most certainly believe that this supplement will make a positive difference for people in some way or another. HIGHLY recommend this not only for those looking into the athletic benefits, but some have said it may have antioxidant, immune, heart health, increased blood flow, anti-allergy, overall wellbeing & cognitive benefits. Also, combine with quercetin for synergistic effect. Do your research and you will discover there's more than what meets the eye with this one ;)

    Must-Have For Older Lifters

    If you're 40+ and trying to gain muscle, this is well worth the spend, especially since Nootropics Depot makes the powder cheap enough to consistently take a meaningful does. Basically, the older you are, the more myostatin your body makes. This decreases myostatin, and, yes, it makes a difference. Highly recommended.
