Epicatechin is a flavonoid, found in several foods in trace amounts, including green tea and dark chocolate. Research has shown Epicatechin significantly increases follistatin levels which is a potent antagonist of myostatin. Epicatechin Phytosome uses proprietary technology to fuse the active ingredient with phospholipids and form a cellular structure used as a delivery vehicle. This novel formula allows for better absorption rates and higher bioavailability.
