Would You Take This?


Dear Subscriber,

I’ve got a quick question for you…

What if losing weight wasn’t hard?
What if it was made easy, just by taking
a certain pill or eating a certain kind of food?

Would you jump onboard and take it or
make sure you eat that type of food?

I ask because in today’s article, I reveal some
fascinating research that indicates what the
future may hold… maybe one day making muscle
building and fat loss as easy as just taking a pill or two…


Yours For Health,

From Fat to Fit – Eating Mustard?

Losing weight and getting in shape is simple.

Move more, eat less. But it’s certainly NOT easy.

If it was, everyone would be walking around with
six-pack abs and a body to die for.

Which is why most folks are always looking for that
“magic bullet” … that magical pill, diet or workout
program that will help them build muscle, lose fat
and turn back the hands of time.

That said, we all know deep down that the only “magic”
that works when it comes to a real physique transformation
is hard work in the gym and in the kitchen.

But interesting new research published in the October
issue of the journal of the Federation of American Societies f
or Experimental Biology (FASEB) suggests there could one day
be a “lazy man’s” way to a better body.

Researchers at North Carolina State University have discovered
a powerful compound with steroid-like effects (meaning it can
help you put on muscle AND burn fat with little effort) exists in
mustard plants.

The compounds are known as brassinosteroids.

To start, the researchers looked at the effects of these
brassinosteroids on rat skeletal muscle cells in a cell cuture.

Once they saw that the brassinosteroids increased protein
synthesis and decreased protein degradation in the muscle
cells, they conducted an experiment on healthy rats.

One group of rats received supplementation while the
other group did not.

At the end of the study, the rats taking the mustard-derived
supplement showed increases in lean body mass.

Finally, the researchers conducted yet another study on
surgically castrated peri-pubertal rats.

It turns out that the brassinosteroids in the mustard
plant were able to restore the androgen-dependent
tissues after castration. As a result, the rats experienced
increased grip strength and an increase in the number
and size of muscle fibres crucial for increased physical

Simply put, it was like steroids, but for rats.

Now, this doesn’t mean you need to start eating
more mustard.

More studies will need to be done, and it’ll have to
be tested on humans before there is any applicable
real-world significance to this discovery.

“The temptation is to see this discovery as another
quick fix to help you go from fat to fit, and to a very
small degree, this may be true. In reality, however,
this study identifies an important drug target for a wide
range of conditions that cause muscle wasting,” said
Gerald Weissmann, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of the FASEB

But hey, it is kinda cool to think “What if…” right?

What if there really WAS something all-natural to help
you burn fat and build muscle with little to no effort?

Unfortunately, until that day comes, the answer is
always going to be hard work.

Remember, getting in shape is easy.

Actually DOING what you know you need to do –
now that’s the hard part.

“doing” department, I highly suggest you take
