Magnitropin – Myokem’s Game-Changing Anabolic is Here!

Myokem Magnitropin

Get ready to get built. The research behind Myokem’s new anabolic, Magnitropin, looks promising

Myokem, a top contender for the best new supplement company in 2014, has already made waves with their Nitramine pre workout, which is seeded at #2 in our Top 10 pre workout supplements list.

With just one product, Myokem got our attention. So what’s next?

Their next three moves are a fat burner named Pyroxamine, an anabolic agent named Magnitropin, and Alphadex, a testosterone-booster / estrogen-inhibitor.

Today, we’ll discuss Magnitropin, the anabolic agent that’s primarily based off of a natural ingredient that’s been causing quite a positive stir lately – plus a supporting cast that you’ve likely never seen before.

This product is meant for as big of natural gains as possible.

The next Myostatin Inhibitor is here

Myostatin Inhibited Dog

We’ve all seen pictures of this myostatin-inhibited dog. But how do we realistically get any reasonable gains here?

Stopping myostatin (a protein that inhibits muscle differentiation and growth) is one of the holy grails of building muscle. There are some effects here in Magnitropin that may just do it, while also increasing follistatin levels.

Every time a product comes out claiming to inhibit myostatin, hordes of users buy it just to try, but oftentimes end up disappointed.

This is the next product that just might do it — but we actually think that it’s more promising than many of the others that have come out in past years, thanks to at least some human-based research.

Of course, big gains won’t come without big diet:

Bulkers need to EAT – Magnitropin might help with that

One of the most interesting parts of Magnitropin:  It contains an ingredient that’s given to patients with certain severe eating disorders who don’t eat enough.

End result: it makes them eat.

We are told that Magnitropin will make you hungry and you do need to eat big. Going beyond what most other anabolics provide, Myokem’s added ingredients to boost your “food motivation” is exciting.

But that’s secondary to the potential muscle growth — so we analyze the ingredients below:

The Magnitropin Ingredients

First, we’ll start with the primary anabolic compound.  After that, we’ll discuss this hunger creator, and then we’ll get into the rest.

  • (-)-Epicatechin

    This is a completely natural flavonoid from cocoa beans that’s been getting a ton of discussion lately.  Users of this ingredient alone have noticed gains that can only be called… abnormal.

    There are all sorts of catechins — you might recognize that this name is similar to EGCG (or epigallocatechin gallate), which is popular from green tea extract.  Most of them have potent antioxidant behavior, but (-)-epicatechin is the only one with potential anabolic properties.

    Typically, you take 1mg/kg of bodyweight, so the dosage should be roughly 200mg.

    Unfortunately for us, there’s not a ton of human-based research on strength gains, but there’s enough to get us excited.

    Here’s the list of benefits:

    1. Improved follistatin / myostatin levels and improved hand grip strength

      How Epicatechin affects Myostatin Levels

      Epicatechin dropping myostatin! Will this work in younger users? Will it result in GAINS?

      After 7 days of taking (-)-epicatechin, elderly patients were able to increase their hand grip strength and had an improved ratio of plasma follistatin/myostatin.[1]

      While this isn’t the study we want — we want to research trained athletes taking it for a month — it’s what we got.  And there is some incredibly intriguing promise here.

      The fact is, if any humans, elderly or not, got a follistatin increase and a myostatin decrease — there’s a chance you can too.  This alone makes us at least interested.

    2. Improved exercise capacity (in mice)

      The same study mentioned above also claims “The flavanol (-)-epicatechin (Epi) enhances exercise capacity in mice”.  This comes from a study performed on male mice after 15 days of taking the compound.

      They noticed that there were significant increases in treadmill performance, and muscle fatigue resistance.[2]

      Take it for what it is – a mouse study – but… humans are reporting “improved endurance” as well.  To a point, longer, better workouts + more food = more gains.

    3. Potential Nitric Oxide Booster

      By inhibiting NO synthase, humans were able to get vascular effects akin to what flavanol-rich cocoa provides.  At the right dosage, this might increase your pumps and vascularity.[3]

      You won’t see this in the abstract, but note that the increase in FMD (flow-mediated dilation) was roughly the same as what resveratrol can provide.[4]

      That said, any improved pumps are a bonus.  This product is all about strength and lean mass gains.

    4. Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects

      In this study, epicatechin attenuated the development of atherosclerosis and had anti-inflammatory effects on blood vessel walls.  This could go along with the antioxidant behavior exerted by the other catechins.[5]

      Meanwhile, another study showed that epicatechin has antioxidant properties that are a bit weaker than resveratrol and catechin – definitely not a bad thing.  In this case, they came from grape seed.[8]

    Some of the Green Tea Catechins

    Some of the Catechins from green tea: EC (our interest here), EGC, ECG, and the well-known EGCG

    So there’s some serious promise here, and we’re happy to at least see some human studies, but we’ll definitely need more that have proper doses in trained athletes.

    The reviews have been good, but you might need to make a few small leaps of faith if you’re on the fence.

    But if you’re one of those people that will try any natural supplement once, you might already be ready to jump on board — without even seeing the rest of the ingredients.  So let’s continue.

    You can read more on our article titled Epicatechin: The Dark Force Behind Dark Chocolate

  • Gentiana Lutea Extract (10:1)

    Also known as bitter root, many call this herb a “digestive tonic” — it boosts saliva production and stomach acid, and is used in herbal medicine to increase the appetite in patients with eating disorders.[9,10]

    Those Europeans have been making beverages with the 'gentians' for centuries

    Those Europeans have been making beverages with the ‘gentians’ for centuries

    Unfortunately, we’re not able to find any well-performed research studies on this extract in terms of hunger, although there are plenty of other studies with regards to other medical conditions and is also commonly (and safely) consumed in European countries in beverages.[11].

    It may also be radioprotective![12]

    Honestly, we were hoping for more info on this, but it’s interesting to note that herbal medicine has been using this for a long time to get patients who never feel the need to eat… to eat.  Myokem is playing an interesting card by including this one in Magnitropin.  Even if it only got some of the smallest guys to just EAT and lift hard, some will consider that a win in and of itself.

    Again, it’s worth trying on a bulk, but you need to have your diet planned before taking this – don’t rely on it to “make you hungry and you’ll figure it out later”.  That’s how you get fat — you should already come prepared and be bulk cooking before the week starts anyway!

  • Paederia Foetida Extract (20:1)

    Indian medicine calls this a “sexual stimulant” for males.  There are some incredibly promising studies performed on rats, but not yet a whole lot of well-performed research on humans, so to speak.

    The reason paederia foetida is so promising as a natural testosterone booster is because it boosts healthy testicular function in rats, by promoting better blood flow and health to seminal vesicle and epididymis.

    1. Aphrodisiac Effects (mice)

      Aphrodisiacs and Mice


      Rats that were given 50-200mg per kg of an ethanol-based extract had major aphrodisiac effects – their mounting frequency went up over 231%![13]

      This is comparable to giving testosterone to rats.

    2. Effects on Testosterone (mice)

      Meanwhile, in the study, higher doses caused the rats’  serum testosterone to increase far beyond the control.

    3. Antioxidant behavior

      There’s some great potential here, since this proved to be somewhere between quercetin and vitamin E in oxidation tests – and quercetin is no slouch.[6]

    4. Anti-diarrheal effects

      When given castor oil (a laxative) or high doses of magnesium sulfate (also laxative), paederia foetida had impressive anti-diarrhea effects.

      I know we don’t care about that, but it’s far better than having it be the other way ’round here![7]

  • Cistanche Deserticola Extract (20:1)

    This is a unique plant that doesn’t use chlorophyll to make its energy. It is a rogue badass of a plant, and Myokem is betting it will provide for some badass gains.

    Some call it “desert ginseng”, and claim it has all of the following properties:

    Cistance (violacea, not deserticola)

    “Chlorophyll? More like BOROPHYLL!”[17] (Note: This is cistanche violacea, not cistanche desertica)

    • hormone regulation,
    • immunomodulatory,
    • neuroprotective,
    • antioxidative,
    • anti-apoptotic (anti cell death),
    • anti-nociceptive (painkiller),
    • anti-inflammatory,
    • anti-fatigue activities, and
    • the promotion of bone formation[14, 15]

    In our case, we’re interested in the performance boost you’ll get with it.

    In one study, mice had improved swimming capacities, with less muscle damage, better lactic acid disposal, and improved energy storage.[16]

    All in all, we’re not finding any human studies here, but it’s yet another interesting component, and the anti-fatigue, muscle-protective benefits need to be further explored.


As you can see, there’s a lot of intrigue here, but not enough human-research to make the most conservative supplement users jump in.

With that said, looking at the research, even if it’s half as effective as Myokem wants it to be, it’s not hard to believe some of the early reviews of competing products that contain epicatechin.

Our recommendation

If you’re a “liberal” natural supplement user, and have done far worse things to your body than take a few plant extracts, we think this is definitely worth trying, especially if you’re over the age of 30 and things are starting to decline.

If you’re conservative with this kind of stuff, just keep your eyes on it and all of the reviews – you can always consider it later.

The force is strong with this Myokem company, no doubt.  This won’t be the last time you hear about them.
