Springs CO, 9 May 2002
more than a year of research and clinical studies, Biotest Laboratories

discovered CSP-3, the myostatin binder, while experimenting

discovery of this hydroponically grown Canary Islands "super algae"
by-product has allowed Biotest to remove the genetic limitations
to muscle growth, making it possible for the "average" human to

is orally bioavailable and has already proven to be well tolerated
by the body. Furthermore, inhibiting myostatin won't affect the
heart or structures other than skeletal muscle, making it very safe.

associated conditions, like diabetes."
to Biotest's CEO, Tim Patterson, the applications of this product
extend far beyond the bodybuilding community. "I believe this is
one of those rare times when everyone from scientists to athletes
is going to be blown away -- that when all is said and done, bodybuilding
and sports in general will be changed in an incredibly positive
way," Patterson says.
