    Question Cystoseira canariensis - is there a future to this?


    I've been wandering the web and have accidently discovered this study:
    http://www.rhodiolarosea.org/cystoseira-canariensis.pdf

    In short (for those too lazy to read), it says "In this work we demonstrated that SPs isolated
    from the brown seaweed Cystoseira canariensis bind to the myostatin protein in serum".


    --------------------------------------------------------
    This sounds pretty amazing, a compound that can bind to myostatin and inhibit its effects would have great muscle building effects, in theory at least. But in practice, the products that contain this extract (at least 3 that I know of) get ****ty reviews and have a reputation of being bunk.

    Why? Are the doses too small? Is the delivery not efficient? Is the study fake?

    This seems to be the best forum for discussing effective supplements, with a lot of knowledgeable people.
    I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this

    myostatin does lots of things. Blocking it systemically would likely be very bad

    Better yet, save your money, wait for Activa e to be released, then spend your hard earned $$ on a product that actually works.

    Order from Biotest a two months supply...
    After seeing the reviews, I'd rather not. I'm just trying to figere out why these products are so far from what they're supposed to be
    Lean One, what is this Activa you're talking about? Something worth waiting for?
