Lift Weights, Eat Mustard, Build Muscles?

ScienceDaily (Sep. 29, 2011) — If you are looking to lean out, add muscle mass, and get ripped, a new research report published in The FASEB Journal suggests that you might want to look to your garden for a little help. That’s because scientists have found that when a specific plant steroid was given orally to rats, it triggered a response similar to anabolic steroids, with minimal side effects. In addition, the research found that the stimulatory effect of homobrassinolide (a type of brassinosteroid found in plants such as mustards) on protein synthesis in muscle cells led to increases in lean body mass, muscle mass and physical performance.

  1. Uh do you build muscles eating mustard, I doubt I thought eating proteins and other smooth foods with calories help build muscle mass.
