More reasons why NMT won’t work

By Patrick Arnold

Let me preface this post by apologizing for my lack of objectivity in my last post on N-methyltyramine (NMT).  Many have dismissed the science I presented in my original post on this subject on the basis that I show bias against Mr. Klein.  And it is true, I do not like the man and I have […]

Update on Carrageenan Site Injection Product

By Patrick Arnold

A few weeks ago I revealed in my blog that there is a product on the market that appears to be an injectable carrageenan solution.  This is purported to be a “site specific” muscle growth injection and the science is based upon some japanese research I had first uncovered about five years ago.  The product […]

Water based “Synthol” type cosmetic muscle injection product being sold?

By Patrick Arnold

  Years back I wrote about some Japanese research I read regarding site specific muscle enhancement.  The research involved the injection of a water solution of a gum fiber called carrageenan into the muscles of mice.  The muscles got bigger due to both hyperplasia (increased number of muscle fibers) and hypertrophy (increased size of individual […]
