    Myostatin Neutralizers, Do they work?

    One thing inparticular I was looking at was Pinnacle's "Juiced Protein with MyoZap". This boasts that it blocks or neutralizes a gene in your body called Myostatin that regulates and limits muscle growth. Has anyone tried this product or any other "myostatin neutalizers"? Do they work?

    Myostatin is horse****. I could go on for hours, but I won't. If you don't take my word for it, go talk to your local genetics Phd. Myostatin is the product, and Myosin is the gene, for future reference.

    I asked my genetics teacher about that. She said its a bunch of crap, theres no way you can neutralize the myosin gene. You have to be born with a neutralized myosin gene.

    I've seen studies that show pictures of mice that have been given myosin blockers, and the difference is amazing. They were nearly twice as large as the regular mice. However, I have never met a human that has had success using the products.

    It's my understanding that Myostatin is a protein, not a gene.

    "Myostatin could be regarded as Mother Nature’s “choke collar” on muscle growth. Hence, the name ‘skinny protein’. Myostatin powerfully suppresses the protein-building machinery of your muscle cells, restricting them to a limited degree of growth. In this way, myostatin effectively keeps your muscles from getting bigger than is necessary to cope with the average situation of life (as evolution and natural selection has dictated)."

    No, they were legit. The research wasn't done by or for a supplement company, it was from an independent lab. It wasn't on the internet either, it was in my cell biology class at school.

    Its make believe. There are some real myostatin blockers being developed for trails for muscular dystrophy but problem is, removing mysostatins cause disruption to other emzymes and proteins and can have some really serious consequences (like triggering MS or possible muscular dystrophy itself when taken by normally healthy persons).

    Myozap is kelp. The rat love the **** and got fat. If you ate 50 lbs of the **** everyday, you would make the same gains. LOL

    i thought that study was done through breeding, not supplementation?

    Blocking technology will be developed one day, but not by a supplement company and it won't be sold OTC.

    Johns Hopkins university developed several myostatin blockers but it causes profound nervous system damage in rats (causes MS and the like).

    Well the supplement company says if you have myostatin in a petri dish and scoop in a teaspoon of this sea kelp, the sea kelp bonds with the myostatin in the dish. Well even if this actually happens directly applying it in a dish is completely different from eating it, having your stomach acids completely break down the kelp before absorbing it.

    Its just like you can swallow large quantities of pure testosterone but your stomach will break it all down into basic amino acids and none of the testosterone gets into your blood as testosterone. Your stomach and other processes of digestion breaks stuff down, especially organic products.
