Urso-X - High-Performance Bioactive Ursolic Acid | Now on sale at Tigerfitness
Urso-X is a new, natural anabolic compound that triggers muscle
growth, enhances muscle strength, stops muscle catabolism and speeds
It’s very rare that a new discovery in the world
of performance enhancing supplements comes about. Urso-X is that new
Very recent research has identified the key compound
in Urso-X - ursolic acid - as a novel bioactive substrate that has
potent anabolic (muscle-building) and anti-catbolic (prevents muscle
breakdown) properties. This research also discovered that ursolic acid
produces powerful fat burning effects.
Adding Urso-X to your
training program will allow you to build more muscle faster, make
greater strength gains more rapidly, and get leaner quicker.
How Urso-X was discovered and developed . . .
Muscle wasting is a serious ailment that affects our aging population.
The older you get the less muscle your body wants to hang on to. In
fact, after a certain age you naturally lose muscle each and every year.
This is simply an inescapable biological function of aging.
Illness is also a major contributor of muscle wasting. One of the
biggest challenges doctors face with patients recovering from surgery or
illness is the loss of healthy, lean muscle mass. Even the slightest
stress from the simplest surgeries lead to muscle loss. And up until now
there was no pharmaceutical or natural compound to specifically address
these catabolic effects. It’s this critical condition that lead to the
discovery and development of Urso-X.
A research team at the
University of Iowa set out to find the elusive answer to muscle loss
under certain conditions. They first worked to identified the gene
activity that occurs during the muscle loss and weakening condition.
Their research identified 63 different genes that changed during a
fasting state in humans and another 29 genes that shift their expression
during this deprived state.
With this knowledge the researchers
then compared those gene expression signatures to the signatures of
cells treated with more than 1300 different bioactive molecules. Through
a painstaking process of one by one elimination the researchers
identified ursolic acid as a compound with effects that could counteract
muscle catabolism and promote muscle growth. They discovered the
After identifying ursolic acid
through the computer models, it was time to study the real-world
effects. The researchers next gave ursolic acid to starved mice. This
study clearly showed that ursolic acid had anti-catabolic effects and
could protect against muscle loss and weakening as the computer models
predicted. The starved mice fed ursolic acid lost significantly less
muscle than the control mice (those not receiving ursolic acid) in the
Muscle Growth - From Powerful Anti-Catabolic to Powerful Anabolic . . .
To follow up the first study researchers sought to confirm ursolic
acid’s anabolic potential. When ursolic acid was added to the food of
normal mice for a period of 5 weeks, their muscles grew significantly
greater and faster. A five-week course of ursolic acid resulted in 15%
greater muscle growth than the control mice not consuming ursolic acid.
And the mice getting the ursolic acid grew measurably stronger than the
control mice. Scientists confirmed through muscle biopsies and
microscopic analysis that actual muscle fiber thickening had occurred -
muscle hypertrophy. Bigger, stronger - faster.
The Anti-Catabolic Science . . .
Digging deeper into the science, the researchers discovered that
ursolic acid decreased the activity of the catabolic genes MuRF-1 and
Atrogin-1 in the muscle cells. These are two of the most potent genes
associated with catabolic (muscle-breakdown) activity in muscle. Ursolic
acid has a dramatic effect on reducing catabolic activity in muscle
cells by decreasing the activity of the genes responsible muscle
The Anabolic Science . . .
The researchers also discovered that the activity of the gene for IGF-1
(Isulin Growth Factor 1) increased and the concentration of IGF-1 in the
blood also increased. IGF-1 is one of the body’s most potent anabolic
hormones and ursolic acid increased the activity of the gene and blood
Ursolic acid triggers the key anabolic hormones responsible for muscle growth.
Another key anabolic effect centers around ursolic acid’s effect on
molecular signaling molecules. Ursolic acid “switched on” the receptors
for IGF-1, Akt and S6K. This molecular signaling activity leads to an
increase in protein synthesis and cell proliferation.
acid is a potent bioactive compound that literally works through
multiple pathways to turn off muscle breakdown and turn on muscle
And it doesn’t stop there . . .
In the studies ursolic acid also reduced the fat cells’ emission of
leptin, the concentrations of triglycerides and cholesterol, and even
fasting glucose levels. All of these are positive effects for reducing
body fat accumulation.
So what does all this science mean for you . . .
Urso-X just might be the most significant muscle-growth enhancing
compound to come along in decades. It certainly has serious scientific
credentials that are sure to grow in volumes as more in-depth research
is conducted. But you can reap the muscle-building rewards now!
natural substrate found in several herbs and fruits, Urso-X works on
multiple genetic signalling pathways that trigger the most potent
biological activities for lean muscle growth, increased strength and
accelerated fat loss.
Adding Urso-X to your training program will put you on a sure-fire
path for faster muscle growth, more strength, and accelorated fat loss.
