EP1C Unleashed and EP1C Unleashed Transdermal feature (-)-epicatechin as the main ingredient. (-)-epicatechin is a flavanol found in cocoa seeds and green tea. Recent research has shown that this flavanol may be useful for treating the age-related decline in muscle mass and associated strength, or sarcopenia, due to its action as a myostatin inhibitor. Myostatin is a protein involved in preventing the increase of muscle size and differentiation. So by blocking its action, it can be beneficial to those seeking additional muscle mass. Initial studies demonstrated that administration of Epi for 5 days increased follistatin (which binds to and inhibits myostatin) by 2.5 times. In 1 study, human subjects treated for 1 week with epicatechin saw changes to markers of muscle differentiation. The study with epicatechin demonstrated that the ratio of follistatin/myostatin was increased by almost 50%! Epicatechin has insulin mimic action and improves heart health. Epicatechin also helps to reduce lipid peroxidation and inhibits platelet aggregation. It causes blood vessel dilation by regulating nitric oxide.
Another well-known polyphenol is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a constituent in tea that has been studied in a host of conditions, from weight loss to cancer to osteoarthritis and Alzheimer’s. In addition, EGCG has been investigated for potential influence on parameters of endurance and lipid oxidation. However, both Epicatechin and EGCG suffer from the known problem of bioavailability, with absorption of oral Epicatechin occurring at less than 50%.
Olympus Labs uses an enhanced delivery system called PhytoFUSE. Their research shows this delivery method can enhance potency anywhere from 2x-6x! This means that EP1C Unleashed and EP1C Unleashed Transdermal will be 200 – 600% more potent than any other Epicatechin product on the market!
