Epoch contains Epicatechin; a potent antioxidant which occurs naturally in many foods, such as cocoa and tea.
Epicatechin naturally promotes a more fit and athletic appearance by limiting the effects of "Myostatin;" a substance produced naturally in the body that can decrease muscle tone. Myostatin levels increase as we age, leading to a 'softer' appearance. Conversely, Follistatin is protein produced naturally by the human body and is at higher levels when we're younger. Epicatechin enhances the toning effects of your body's natural follistatin helping to promote a more fit and healthy appearance. True to form, our Epicatechin is 98% pure, not a watered down extract or blend.
Smilax Sieboldii Extract standardized for the metabolite 5a-hydroxy-laxogenin-3-acetate.
5a-hydroxy-laxogenin is sometimes consumed by athletes as a natural strenght- enhancer. In our topical formulation, 5a-hydroxy-laxogenin complements the Epicatechin by providing an additional toning and firming effect. As usual we didn't settle for the run-of-the-mill 5a-hydroxy-laxogenin, we've stepped it up with the more lipophilic acetate metabolite for better absorption.
Mangosteen fruit extract standardized for Alpha-Mangostin.
Mangosteen juice and mangosteen extracts have long consumed as part of traditional medcines and remedies and in modern, scientific studies has been found to possess a wide range of biological activities, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, cardioprotective, antidiabetic, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antioxidant properties.
