Ursolic Acid Anabolic

  1. Ursolic Acid Anabolic

    mRNA Expression Signatures of Human Skeletal Muscl... [Cell Metab. 2011] - PubMed result

    From abstract...

    "A natural compound enriched in apples, ursolic acid reduced muscle atrophy and stimulated muscle hypertrophy in mice. It did so by enhancing skeletal muscle insulin/IGF-I signaling and inhibiting atrophy-associated skeletal muscle mRNA expression. Importantly, ursolic acid's effects on muscle were accompanied by reductions in adiposity, fasting blood glucose, and plasma cholesterol and triglycerides. These findings identify a potential therapy for muscle atrophy and perhaps other metabolic diseases."

    I remember trying to find a good ursolic acid supplement several years ago (without success) and I don't recall now why I wanted to try it.

    Doesn't seem to be any more now than there were then.

  2. That compound is in Anadraulic State I believe.

    Tap, snap, or nap.

  3. its usually listed in ingredient facts as 3 beta-3-hydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid
    try looking for products with that in the supp facts
