    Probably available soon :noes:
    It supposedly has been tested on male subjects, we'll see when they put up that article. Some people with a certain version of a myostatin gene can put on muscle like mad (Flex Wheeler has it and has been part of at least 1 study on the subject) which favors hypertrophy and hyperplasia in muscle cells while a supplements inhibiting myostatin would make hypertrophy easier.

    On another forum I frequent, there were alot of posts about a myostatin supressing peptide that was undergoing clinical trials for treatment of wasting disease. Supposedly initial trials were promising. I can't remember the drug name, but I remember there were alot of skeptics about their ever being an effective oral version.

    I've read about people with defective version of the gene and always thought that it would make an awesome performance enhancer if they manage to supress the myostatin production.

    Top level athletes that are tested for the gene often have it. It's like the "i'm a badass" mutation.

    EDIT: I was under the impression that some places already sell something like this and it's basically snake oil.

    Appears to be out already. Almost 100% a scam, though. People would be all over this shit if it were legit.

    its called Trichostatin A, and a 1 month cycle would cost you @ 100 grand. Best of luck.

    It's not the XYY mutation that causes inhibited myostatin production as far as I know. :squint:

    You can have one copy of the defective gene rather than two. Two = next to no myostatin production, while people with one copy are usualy extremely athletic.

    Or that's what I was reading when I researched this a few months back. I don't have any studies or anything to back this up. :p

    edit: The kid you're talking about, his mother had one copy of the gene and was an olympic sprinter.

    :hsugh:

    What am I missing? It's a gene deficiency. How is an oral supplement going to change anything?

    I've seen the cow before, but after doing research when it was originally posted, no one could prove that the cow was supplemented, or born with the deficiency. :dunno:

    Right which means its genetic, not supplemented. No supplement is going to change your damn genetic code.

    Right, but if you can take something that lowers myostatin it the same way the gene mutation does, the effects should be the same, in theory.

    Too bad nobody has been able to yet.
