What is Epi-Plex?
Natural Anabolic Muscle Builder + Cardiovascular & Endothelial Health Support
Lean Muscle, Strength, Endurance, Recovery, Blood Flow, Pumps, Muscle Fullness, & More
Epi-Plex is a natural anabolic muscle builder that helps support lean muscle, strength, and endurance through a variety of pathways, including supporting increased mitochondrial biogenesis, myostatin inhibition, and increased follistatin.
Epi-Plex Evolved – The New Epi-Plex
The original Epi-Plex formula was one of the first Epicatechin products on the market and to our knowledge, it was the first Epicatechin product to contain no proprietary blends, no filler ingredients, and to tell you exactly how much Epicatechin that you were getting per capsule.
Epi-Plex – Evolved – in a Great Way:
Have you ever noticed that a lot of times when there is an updated or new version of a supplement, the new or updated version actually winds up being worse and less effective instead of better? The reason for that is because many times when there is an update or new version of something, it’s because the raw materials for the original version are unavailable or the prices increased and/or the brand wants to increase their profits through lowering their costs.
That is NOT the case with the new Epi-Plex.
The new version of Epi-Plex contains the same amount of Epicatechin as the original tried and true and very much loved Epi-Plex formula, but now also includes 150 mg. per capsule of VasoFlo+.
Epi-Plex evolved because knowledge evolves, new ingredients become available, and we at Competitive Edge Labs are never content to rest on the sales and popularity of a good selling product – we always want to offer you the absolute best possible products at the best prices, and sometimes that includes us finding ways to make great products even better.
The reason for updating Epi-Plex is to make it BETTER in EVERY WAY than it was before – better lean muscle and strength gains, better pumps, better endurance, better recovery, better muscle fullness, & more.
Plus, another very important reason is let’s face it – with every day that goes by, we are all getting older and cardiovascular and endothelial health is or should be more important to us all.
The new Epi-Plex formula evolves Epi-Plex into being an even more well-rounded formula for cardiovascular and endothelial health support.
Let’s Examine the Benefits:
Myostatin & Follistatin:
Myostatin is a protein that is found in skeletal muscle that limits muscle growth.
Follistatin is an antagonist of myostatin that may accelerate muscle growth by inhibiting myostatin and that has even shown muscle enhancing effects beyond those of just being a myostatin inhibitor.
Myostatin is a limiting factor of muscle growth at any age, but as we get older, our levels of myostatin tend to increase and our levels of follistatin tend to decrease.
Epicatechin has been shown to support increases in follistatin and decreases in myostatin.
Lean Muscle & Strength:
Directly above, we discussed how Epicatechin can support increases in lean muscle and strength by helping to increase follistatin and decrease myostatin.
In addition to that, Epicatechin has also been shown to stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis, induce skeletal muscle regeneration, and support improvements in muscle tissue.
Muscle Fullness, Pumps, & Vascularity:
Epicatechin supports improved NO production, vascularity, & and blood flow for increased muscle fullness, improved pumps, vascularity, and increased nutrient delivery.
Green and Black Tea also contains various constituents that have been shown to support improvements in pumps, vascularity, and blood flow.
Simply put, the new Epi-Plex will give you even better vascularity, pumps, and muscle fullness than the original version that so many people love.
One of the most common testimonials that we received on the original version of Epi-Plex was how great of increases in muscular endurance that people experienced with Epi-Plex.
The new version of Epi-Plex contains the same amount of Epicatechin as the original formula and now has VasoFlo+™ added, an exciting ingredient that supports blood flow, cardiovascular and endothelial health, and much more.
Simply put, one can expect the same or even better endurance support from the new Epi-Plex.
Cardiovascular Health, Blood Flow, & Endothelial Health:
Epicatechin as well as Green Tea and Black Tea constituents (both of which are found in VasoFlo+™), have been shown to support blood flow, cardiovascular, and endothelial health in a variety of ways.
Epicatechin has been shown in studies to improve vascular response and to have cardioprotective properties. Recent studies have also suggested that certain epicatechin containing foods may have a blood pressure lowering capacity.
The mechanisms that Epicatechin works through may also help prevent oxidative damage and endothelial dysfunction, which has been associated with high blood pressure, certain brain disorders, and erectile dysfunction.
Green and Black tea constituents have been studied extensively for their effects on cardiovascular and endothelial health, blood flow, metabolic health, weight management, body-composition, immune support, and a wide variety of other benefits.
VasoFlo+™ is a specialized green and black tea extract combination.
No Deceptive Proprietary Blends – Know Exactly How Much You’re Getting
Deceptive labeling is a huge problem in the dietary supplement industry and there is no better example of that than how some brands choose to label epicatechin containing products.
Many brands include epicatechin in proprietary blends, and other brands may do even more deceptive things like labeling a product as ‘Green Tea Extract (containing Epicatechin)’ or something similar.
In the case of brands labeling products as, or similar to ‘Green Tea Extract (containing Epicatechin)’, what a lot of consumers don’t realize is that that may mean that a product may be just regular green tea and contain as little as 1 mg. or less of Epicatechin.
What are proprietary blends and why are they a problem?
A proprietary blend is when a company takes multiple ingredients and instead of giving you the amount of each active ingredient, they group them all together in a blend and give you the dosage of the blend as a whole. In rare cases, such as if a company has a very unique product formulation where they don’t want their competitors to know the exact amounts of certain ingredients that they are using, this is understandable. However, in the case of ingredients like epicatechin, it isn’t.
Unfortunately for consumers, many times companies use proprietary blends as a sales tactic to give the appearance that a product contains more active ingredients or higher dosages of active ingredients than it really does. This allows them to deceive consumers into buying the product thinking they are getting more than they are and to maximize their profits in the process.
Sometimes these blends contain multiple ingredients, sometimes they may only contain two.
Here is an example to help you understand proprietary blends better:
If a company labels a product as a blend and say ‘insert ingredient name, Epicatechin – 1,200 mg.’ then it can be as much as 1,199 mg. of the first ingredient and as little as 1 mg. of Epicatechin.
Why do companies use proprietary blends?
To maximize profits by cutting costs. By engaging in label deception and trickery, brands can save a lot of money in products costs which can make a huge difference in their markup and profits.
Luckily for our customers, Competitive Edge Labs isn’t like that. We want you to know how much of what ingredients you are getting, and we want to provide you with the best possible products in order to help you reach your health and fitness goals.
Let’s Examine the Ingredients:
Epicatechin – 300 mg. per capsule
Epicatechin is a bioactive flavanol found in trace amounts in many foods, including dark chocolate and green tea, that is widely regarded for its myostatin-inhibiting and muscle building properties.
Epicatechin is also known to stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis and nitric oxide (NO) production and to enhance blood flow and nutrient delivery.
Epicatechin is commonly used to help build lean muscle and strength, improve endurance, increase muscle fullness and pumps, and for its cardiovascular and endothelial health benefits.
A common question that people sometimes wonder or ask is if they eat a lot of cacao/dark chocolate, do they get enough epicatechin for any type of muscle building or cardiovascular benefits?
While different foods contain different amounts of epicatechin, dark chocolate contains the most, and the darker the better with pure cocoa containing the highest amounts of all at nearly 3 mg. per gram.
To put it in perspective, you would need to eat 100 grams of pure cacao to get the amount of epicatechin that is in one single capsule of Epi-Plex.
VasoFlo+™ – 150 mg. per capsule
Black Tea and Green Tea both come from the Camellia Sinensis plant.
Camelia Sinensis is an amazing plant that contains a wide variety of constituents including EGCG, Epicatechin, and many other remarkable lesser known catechins and flavonoids.
Green Tea and Black Tea constituents have been studied extensively for their effects on cardiovascular and endothelial health, blood flow, metabolic health, weight management, body-composition, immune support, and a wide variety of other benefits.
Also, in recent years, there have been a number of studies that link Black Tea & Green Tea to a variety of anti-aging and longevity benefits.
Even though these exciting ingredients are constituents of Black Tea and Green Tea, they are all specific components/extracts that would be difficult to consume large enough quantities of through regular Green Tea and Black Tea to elicit results, which is why specialized extracts of these ingredients exist.
VasoFlo+ is a specialized green & black tea extract combination.
Bioperine® – 10 mg. per capsule
Bioperine® is a standardized extract from the fruit of Piper nigrum L (Black Pepper) containing 95% piperine. Piperine has been shown to enhance the oral bioavailability of many supplements.
Stacking & Synergy:
Epi-Plex can be taken with Anabolic Effect, M-Test, Cloma-Plex, Super Swole, LipoVantage, Lipo Elite, or a variety of other Competitive Edge Labs products for even more hardcore results.
