  1. There's also a 2006 study that showed no effect in humans and a couple from the late 1980s that I can't find but which were described this way in the 2006 study that contradicted the results. The most often cited scientific study on ecdysterone was published in Scientific Sports Bulletin by Simakin. This study sought to determine the effect of ecdysterone on muscle tissue mass and fat mass, while testing for hormonal changes in the subjects. Seventy-eight highly trained male and female athletes served as subjects in one of three experimental groups: protein, protein and ecdysterone
  2. Yes. Second study in the first post is n=46 human clinical trial.

    So I have added a couple of sets of DB snatch to my other workouts....really gets the blood pumping. I started ecdysterone about 10 days ago and feel like my strength has taken an unexpected positive jump....maybe related?

    Thanks. It has always seemed to me to be a good overall measure of full body strength/power but my posterior chain is now wondering at the wisdom of this sort of work....lol

    Successfully snatched 110# DB from the floor. Think I can do 120# if I work on my form some.
  8. Surprising New Study Finds That People Who Wear Masks Are More Likely to Become Infected With COVID-19 Than Those Who Don’t It is plausible that mandating masks could be counterproductive if the increased risk associated with an increase in contacts is larger than the decrease in risk associated with mask wearing. That is, it is possible masks may provide a false sense of security that leads to people letting their guard down and trusting the mask more than is warranted. Further research into the effectiveness of masks and behavioral responses to mask mandates is urgently needed.
  9. Have to wait for the actual study to be published to see if the gender issue was significant or not.
  10. Really small study but impressive results. This is the same drug that Novartis tried to use to treat a rare muscle-wasting disease a few years ago and failed. Medication shows promise for weight loss in patients with obesity, diabetes THE OBESITY SOCIETY Research News SILVER SPRING, Md.--A new study confirms that treatment with Bimagrumab, an antibody that blocks activin type II receptors and stimulates skeletal muscle growth, is safe and effective for treating excess adiposity and metabolic disturbances of adult patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes
  11. I don't know what brand I have off-hand but they smell really bitter/sour in the bottle.
  12. It is a a bile salt after all.
  13. Is TUDCA supposed to smell/taste really bitter?
