Controversy Over New 'Steroid Alternative'

Natural Compound Boosts Muscle Growth 600% — But Should It Be Banned?


Weight-training athletes who supplemented their diets with a newly discovered cis-fatty-acid experienced a 600% increase in lean muscle growth and a 9-fold increase in biceps girth over placebo.
NEW YORK (Healthy Lifestyles) A new dietary supplement containing an extract from a rare African plant is currently the hottest thing going in amateur athletics — but not without controversy. 

Critics say the compound  called Cis9-T11 — gives athletes an "unfair advantage" and should be banned. Proponents argue that research shows the nutrient to be both safe and effective and that banning the natural compound would be akin to banning vitamins. 

One thing people on both sides can agree on is the controversial, new supplement works. According to a new study from researchers at Kent State University, novice weight trainers who took Cis9-T11 for seven weeks experienced a 600% increase in lean muscle growth, including a 9-fold increase in biceps girth.

Another study published in the journal Medicine in Science in Sports and Exercise found that in weight-training athletes, Cis9-T11 increased overall muscle strength by 202 percent within just 6 weeks  with zero side effects.

In fact, not only were there not any side effects, but men using the supplement actually experienced improved health measures across the board, including reductions in bad LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar.

And if all that weren't reason enough to have athletes stocking up, researchers from Sweden's Uppsala University found that people using Cis9-T11 for 28 days experienced a full 1-inch reduction of abdominal fat — without changes to their diets.

Fair Game or Unfair Advantage?

MuscleWord-of-mouth marketing has led to Cis9-T11 overtaking creatine as the most popular supplement in amateur athletic locker rooms. However, according to nutritionist Dennis Johnson, M.S., CPT, the new super supplement amounts to an unfair advantage and should be banned because "it too closely resembles steroids in its benefits."

"The main goal of the supplement industry is to produce legal alternatives to steroids," says Johnson. "According to the Hatch Act, in order for any supplement to be legal it only needs to be found in a compound that exists in nature. But just because it's legal and safe doesn't mean it's not cheating."

Johnson argues that performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) are banned not necessarily because of their untoward side effects but because they give athletes an unfair advantage — and so too, he says, does certain natural supplements, such as Cis9-T11.

'Unreal' Size and Strength Gains 

Whether or not using Cis9-T11 constitutes "cheating" doesn't concern the thousands of athletes and fitness buffs using itJM.

Jason Massey, a 37-year-old amateur athlete from Fort Collins, Colorado, writes: "The gains in muscle size and strength I'm seeing with Cis9-T11 is UNREAL. 

"With other supplements I've used, I thought I could 'kinda sorta' notice a difference, but this is ridiculous. Cis9-T11 is the first supplement I've used where I could actually notice vivid gains in muscle size. After my first 30-day 'cycle,' I've packed on over 25 pounds of muscle, and my strength has literally gone through the roof."

A natural 'steroid alternative'?

ยป Unless you suffer from body dysmorphic disorder, you probably don't aspire to become a human freak of nature, like our friends above.

At the same time, you don't want to be a total "Average Joe." You want to stand out from the crowd. You want to develop the kind of lean, muscular physique that turns heads and drops jaws at the local swimming hole.

Unfortunately, today's crop of bodybuilding supplements do little but cause water retention, bloating, and caffeine crashes.

However, researchers from the University of Wisconsin have recently discovered a non-stimulant, naturally-occurring metabolite which may be the closest thing to a legitimate "steroid alternative" identified to date.

In tests, this compound — an isomer called cis-9-trans-11 found in the dietary fat conjugated linoleic acid — stimulated lean muscle growth an average 600% over placebo.

Another study published in the journal Medicine in Science in Sports and Exercise found that in weight-training athletes, this compound increased overall muscle strength by 202 percent within just 6 weeks with zero side effects.

Tell us what you think: Can this compound help you break through your muscle-growth plateaus? You be the judge: One of the leading distributors of this compound, ANR, LLC, is offering 60-day zero-risk trials plus FREE Express Shipping to Healthy Lifestyles readers.

Santa Monica man gains 20 pounds of muscle in 20 days

Flex"I did a little research about Cis9-T11 and what I read (in medical journals and so forth, not their website) intrigued me. Guys, this stuff is freaking awesome!!!! I know that different things work for different people but for me, this was the real deal. I normally use this stack: Plasmavol, whey isolate, Leukic. I exchanged the Leukic with this Cis9-T11 for about 20 days. It worked wonders. I'm not going to say I added 20 lbs of muscle, but I did add 5 lbs and cut my body fat by 3 percent. I was skeptical at first, but not anymore.”
