Natural athletes are often left with an impossible choice: accept that highly anabolic compounds come along with a host of negative side effects, disqualify them competition, and render them an “enhanced athlete,” or turn to these same compounds to reap their benefits on muscle anabolism and protein synthesis. A long line of supplements has purported to reconcile this problem, promising increases to muscle protein synthesis and nitrogen synthesis comparable to AAS (anabolic androgenic steroids). Such promises, of course, were empty, as the real-world effects of these compounds never matched the laboratory results.
Laxogenin appears to be different. While no natural compound will deliver the same effects as PEDs (performance enhancing drugs), and it’s irresponsible to suggest otherwise, Laxogenin does, in fact, seem to operate through the same mechanism of action that makes these compounds so effective – the so-called PI3K/Akt signaling pathway. This pathway directly regulates a process known as “protein turnover,” the ratio between protein synthesis (where your body “builds” muscle tissue) and protein degradation (where your body “destroys” muscle tissue to feed other physiologic processes). In situations where protein synthesis exceeds degradation, your body is in a state of ‘net positive protein turnover,’ commonly known as “anabolism.” While the data is still emerging, Laxogenin appears to induce this very state by significantly enhancing protein synthesis through the very same PI3K/Akt pathway. These trials show Laxogenin simultaneously reducing protein degradation, perhaps inducing muscle into a state of net positive protein turnover.
Combined with the patented ingredient Peak O2, clinically demonstrated to increase power output, endurance, and other metrics of exercise performance, BOLIC is a fully natural but fully effective performance supplement. It not only increases exercise performance, but makes the underlying response to exercise more efficient – ensuring that your hardwork is paying off!
