Actually, Gold Standard may sound better but Anabolic Effect would probably be better described as the platinum standard because platinum is stronger, denser, and more valuable than gold.
Let’s Examine the Ingredients:
Korean Mistletoe: Korean Mistletoe is a semi-parasitic plant that grows on various trees and has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments. It has been researched for a diverse range of potential benefits and is believed to have immunostimulatory, anti-diabetic, and anti-obesity properties, and much more. Of particular interest to athletes and fitness enthusiasts is that Korean Mistletoe has been reported to increase lean muscle mass, strength, and overall exercise capacity.
Recent research has focused on Korean Mistletoe Extract for use as a treatment for the prevention and reversal of muscle wasting conditions. The research on Korean Mistletoe Extract has been exceptional and could be quite beneficial for athletes. It has been shown to regulate gene expression related to muscle atrophy (muscle breakdown) and muscle hypertrophy (muscle growth) and improve endurance by stimulating mitochondrial activity.
Korean Mistletoe having been shown to not only prevent muscle atrophy but also promote hypertrophy is significant because it means that Korean Mistletoe not only prevents muscle breakdown but also increases muscle growth. In studies, mice that were fed Korean Mistletoe for 4 weeks showed increases in muscle mass and grip strength. Researchers indicated multiple factors leading to this result including the AKT/mTOR pathway. The AKT/mTOR pathway is a signaling pathway recognized as the major pathway regulating protein synthesis. Due to the mice showing increases in muscle and greatly increased strength, the researchers determined that Korean Mistletoe is anabolic as it directly leads to larger and stronger muscles. In addition to increases in muscle and strength, the mice also showed incredible increases in endurance and exercise capacity making Korean Mistletoe an ideal option for strength, endurance, and fitness athletes.
Korean Mistletoe has also been shown in studies to increase endurance and decrease fatigue through increasing mitochondrial oxygen consumption and increased expression of PPARy. Notable examples included increases of up to 212% in swim tests on mice and in one test mice being fed Korean Mistletoe extract ran twice as far as their counterparts resulting in an incredible 100% increase in endurance. (Don’t take us wrong here, we are just conveying the study information but do realize that that is far too good to be true for it to directly translate over into humans at the same %’s; but even transferring over at a fraction of the effectiveness could lead to incredible results).
The last study that we want to bring attention to in this write up is related to fat loss. In one 15 week study on mice, two groups were fed a high fat diet with one group also being fed Korean Mistletoe Extract. At the end of the study, the mice fed the Korean Mistletoe Extract were shown to have 20% less bodyfat than the control group. Researchers found that Korean Mistletoe Extract increases thermogenesis and nearly tripled the amount of UCP1 (uncoupling protein 1), a thermogenic molecule related to the burning of subcutaneous and visceral fat.
This is an incredible level of fat burning potential for something so anabolic.
In summary, Korean Mistletoe Extract shows promising potential to be anabolic, anti-catabolic, endurance enhancing, and to increase fat burning.
Anabolic Effect provides 2,000 mg. Korean Mistletoe Extract per serving.
Eriobotrya Japonica Extract: Eriobotrya Japonica contains a variety of natural anabolic components that may be beneficial to those looking to build lean muscle, increase strength, burn fat, & improve endurance and athletic performance. These include some very well-known names such as Epicatechin, Ferulic Acid, Caffeic Acid, Ursolic Acid, Tormenic Acid, Ellagic Acid, and more. Studies have shown Eriobotrya Japonica to increase the expression of certain myogenic genes and also activate the AKT/mTOR pathway and therefore promote muscle protein synthesis and lean muscle gains. In studies, Eriobotrya Japonica has been shown to prevent muscle atrophy (muscle wasting/muscle loss) and to increase muscle hypertrophy (muscle growth) which also makes it ideal for lean muscle retention while dieting.
Rehmannaie Radix Extract: Rehmannaie Radix has several active compounds may be useful for building lean muscle, strength, and improving endurance, athletic performance, and fat loss. However, the main two we are going to focus on are Catalpol and to a lesser extent, Loganin.
Catalpol has been referred to by some as the closest one can get to natural gene doping due to its effects on erythropoietin (EPO), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), insulin like growth factor type 1 (IGF-1), endorphins, and more.
Erythropoietin (EPO) increases red blood cells which can in turn carry more oxygen to the muscles and lead to increases in overall performance and increases in VO2 max, overall power output, increased endurance, delayed fatigue, improved recovery, and more. These boosts give athletes a huge competitive advantage and EPO has been used illegally by athletes for decades to increase performance. It is most commonly associated with cycling because of the high number of cyclists that have been caught using EPO. What if you could naturally increase EPO? Of course, not to the degree that comes with illicit use, but that may still provide noticeable results in improved performance.
Loganin is a lesser known and lesser emphasized constituent of Rehmannaie Radix Extract. However, if Catalpol wasn’t such an extraordinary ingredient, Loganin itself may be an ingredient worth featuring on its own. It is an iridoid glycoside and can be derived from several sources but is present in high quantities in Rehmannaie Radix. Loganin has the potential to be a fascinating anabolic agent in its own right and is currently being studied for muscle atrophy. In addition, Loganin seems to possess anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, glucose lowering, and muscle protective benefits. Loganin is thought to work by upregulating the AKT/mTOR pathway and increasing IGF-1. Loganin has also been shown in animal studies to increase lean muscle, strength, and protein synthesis.
While many of the ingredients in Anabolic Effect may have potent synergistic effects with one another, the combination of Rehmannaie Radix and S7 may be particularly interesting due to Catalpol’s possible effects on EPO and S7 having been shown to increase nitric oxide levels by 230% through stimulating the body’s own natural production of nitric oxide. This could lead to an abundance of oxygen rich red blood cells being pumped through wide open blood vessels to hard working muscles.
PrimaVie Shilajit Extract (50% Fulvic Acid): PrimaVie is a clinically proven high quality purified Shilajit extract from the Himalayas that contains 50% Fulvic Acid and over 40 other trace minerals and has been shown in studies to significantly increase free and total testosterone levels, as well as improve physical performance and reduce fatigue. In one human trial, Shilajit was able to markedly enhance the extracellular matrix gene expression responsible for skeletal muscle adaptation, making it one of the only ingredients to augment the effect of exercise in this manner.
In another study involving 60 infertile men, Shilajit supplementation was able to improve sperm count by over 60%, improve sperm motility by nearly 40%, and increase levels of testosterone by 23.5% through a reduction inn circulating free radicals. To further back this up, another study involving 75 males demonstrated a 20% increase in total testosterone and a 19% increase in free testosterone.
Shilajit has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine to support male sexual health, energy, vitality, cognitive health, rejuvenation and more.
ActiGin: ActiGin is a natural patented proprietary sports nutraceutical complex comprised of highly fractionated Panax notoginseng and Rosa roxburghii and created using pharmaceutical grade extraction and processing technology and designed to be a 3 in 1 performance aid focusing on – Energy, Endurance, & Recovery.
ActiGin is the result of more than 10 years of research and is backed by one in-vivo and five human clinical trials and has been clinically shown to increase endurance, VO2 Max, muscular energy (ATP production), and reduce inflammation in muscles.
Studies indicate that ActiGin®’s effects on improving endurance/stamina, energy, and recovery time in high intensity exercises may be due to its ability to preserve insulin receptors and glucose transporters on muscle membranes during intensive exercises to ensure a continuous supply of blood glucose into the muscle. Glucose is the fuel for muscle during intense exercise. Depletion of glucose had detrimental effects on the muscles ability to contract and work properly. There are senescent (deteriorating) cells in all human tissues including short lived endothelial cells (lifespan < 2 weeks) in blood vessels and tissues. ActiGin® substantially reduced senescent cell population (mostly endothelial progenitor cells) of exercising skeletal muscle. Also, high intensity exercise acutely decreases satellite cell numbers due to increased demand on the nucleus for muscle regeneration and ActiGin® completely attenuated acute satellite cell depletion. These findings suggest that ActiGin® effectively facilitates senescent cell clearance in contracting muscles and helps maintain muscle stem cell numbers during exercise to enhance high-intensity endurance performance.
Study Highlights include: - Increased endurance time (time to exhaustion) by 20% (improve VO2 Max). - Increase energy (ATP production) but raising the pace-making Citrate synthase enzyme in the first step of the citric acid cycle by 42%. - Speed recovery by reducing inflammation in muscles as evidenced by the reduction of inflammatory biomarkers (TBARS (24%), MDA (44%), Interleukin 6 (IL-6) (35%), and Creatine kinase (CK) (69%)). - Eliminate senescent (deteriorating) muscle cells through macrophage phagocytosis (macrophage phagocytosis involves cells that protect the body by ingesting harmful particles and dead or dying cells). Specifically decreasing SA-B-gal and collagenase, reverse apoptotic DNA fragmentation and leukocyte infiltration, and increase iNOS and IL-6 mRNA expression in the quadriceps after 60 minutes of cycling at 70% VO2 max. - Effectively facilitating senescent (deteriorating) cell clearance in contracting muscles and helping maintain muscle stem cell numbers during exercise to enhance high-intensity endurance performance.
In short, ActiGin is designed to help you train harder, longer, and recover more effectively.
S7: The human body already produces nitric oxide as a vasodilator, signaling the blood vessels to relax, thus increasing blood flow and delivering more oxygen, fuel, and other key nutrients to the muscles.
S7 is a blend of 7 plant-based ingredients that has been clinically shown to increase nitric oxide (NO) levels by 230%. S7 is very unique in that it works differently than other nitric oxide boosters on the market by triggering the body to increase its own internal nitric oxide production.
Anabolic Effect contains 50 mg. of S7, the dosage used in the clinical studies showing the 230% nitric oxide increase.
AstraGin: AstraGin is a natural patented ingredient complex comprised of highly fractionated Astragalus membranaceus and Panax notoginseng and created using pharmaceutical grade extraction and processing technology and designed to help enhance nutrient absorption.
In short, AstraGin is designed to help make sure you properly absorb the other great nutrients in Anabolic Effect for maximum results.

Let’s Examine the Active Ingredients:
Symplocos Racemosa Extract (as SR10X™):
Symplocos Racemosa Extract is a super exciting herb that has so many potential benefits that it would take a series of articles to cover all of the information. So due to space constraints, this write up will just be providing an overview.
The SR10X™ Difference:
It’s all about the extraction – As with most herbs, it’s not the parent herb that delivers the benefits, it’s the active constituent(s) that are responsible for the results. A good well-known example of this would be Turmeric as a parent herb but Curcumin being the constituent that delivers the benefits. Another well-known example would be Milk Thistle being the parent herb but Silymarin being the constituent that delivers the benefits.
Most suppliers sell cheap Symplocos/Lodhra powder that isn’t even extracted at all (despite some claiming otherwise).
SR10X™ is a specialized Symplocos Racemosa Extract standardized to a minimum 10% Tannins.
Fat Loss & Lean Muscle Overview:
Symplocos Racemosa was the active ingredient in one of the most well-renowned and sought-after bodybuilding supplements of all time and works through a variety of pathways to help build lean muscle & strength, support fat loss, and help build or maintain lean muscle while dieting.
PDE Inhibitors and cAMP:
Symplocos Racemosa Extract (also known as Lodhra Bark Extract) is one of nature’s most well-documented phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitors. Phosphodiesterase is the enzyme responsible for breaking down cyclic-AMP (cAMP). Phosphodiesterase inhibitors prevent the phosphodiesterase enzymes from breaking down cAMP. cAMP is a ‘second messenger’ that that helps regulate the effects various hormones and neurotransmitters and has potential benefits such as improved fat loss, increased muscle mass, improved thyroid function, increased steroidogenesis (hormone production), and much more.
Basically, more cAMP in the body can lead to greater fat loss, increased muscle gains, and enhanced hormone levels; all of which can be beneficial for building a leaner more muscular physique.
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH):
Symplocos Racemosa extract supports increasing both Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). This is a great benefit for men as LH boosts testosterone production and FSH helps support healthy sperm development.
Liver Protective Properties:
Symplocos Racemosa, unlike many compounds associated with bodybuilding, has been shown to have hepatoprotective (liver protective) properties.
Potential GI Benefits and More:
Symplocos Racemosa has also been shown to have a wide variety of other potential benefits including having a positive effect of gastrointestinal (GI) ulcers.
Eucommia Ulmoides is a plant-based phytoandrogen that possesses hormone potentiating properties by interacting with androgen receptors to help elevate them naturally.
Eucommia Ulmoides supports increases in natural testosterone levels and may also enhance IGF1 (also known as insulin like growth factor; and sometimes referred to as the ‘Forever Young’ hormone), which supports increases in energy, lean muscle and strength, and decreases in body-fact, stronger bones, tendons, and ligaments, and increases in libido.
In addition, unlike many androgens that may cause stress on the liver and kidneys, Eucommia Ulmoides may have possible liver and kidney support benefits.
Ecklonia Cava is a brown seaweed rich in polyphenolic content that confers antioxidant properties and is being researched for a variety of health and athletic enhancement related benefits.
Ecklonia Cava is thought to be a strong follistatin booster and myostatin inhibitor, which makes it a great candidate for inclusion in a natural anabolic.
In addition, Ecklonia Cava may also work as an ACE inhibitor. ACE inhibitors are most commonly known for their cardiovascular support benefits but also increase insulin sensitivity and glucose update into muscles. Lower ACE levels may equate to lower overall bodyfat levels, increased fat metabolism in the liver, and the ability to process sugars more quickly. It has also been suggested that the ACE system may be involved in physical performance and the skeletal muscle system.
Spilanthes Acmella Extract (as SA3X™):
Spilanthes Acmella is an herb that has a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine as a natural testosterone booster and for its aphrodisiac (libido enhancing) and pain-relieving properties.
There are several constituents in Spilanthes that are thought to be beneficial, but it is the N-Alkylamides extract that was used in the studies on Spilanthes and that are thought to be the most responsible for its effects.
Anabolic XT uses SA3X™, a high potency branded extract that contains a minimum 3.5% Alkylamides extract and whose plants are non-GMO and grown free of pesticides.
Spilanthes Acmella and Increased Testosterone & Luteinizing Hormone (LH):
In addition to its long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine for its testosterone boosting and libido enhancing properties, preliminary studies in mice have shown Spilanthes Acmella (specifically the N-Alkylamides) to have a positive effect on testosterone, luteinizing hormone (LH), and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) after 28 days of use.
Spilanthes Acmella and Sexual Performance:
In addition to its natural testosterone boosting benefits and extensive history of use in Ayurvedic medicine as an aphrodisiac (libido enhancer), preliminary studies in mice have shown Spilanthes Acmella (specifically the N-Alkylamides) to increase sexual frequency, ejaculation, sexual consistency, & harder erections. In this study researchers documented an increase on the PEI (Penile Erection Index) compared to a control group with the increase being nearly 3 times higher in the Spilanthes Acmella group. In laymen’s terms, this means that the Spilanthes group experienced improved erection quality/harder erections.
What is the importance of Spilanthes Acmella Extract being standardized?
The importance of Spilanthes Acmella Extract being standardized is because the percentage of standardized extract (specifically N-Alkylamide content) is thought to be responsible for the levels of benefits that this exciting ingredient provides.
Many Spilanthes raw materials and products on the market are just the herb powder and aren’t standardized at all so the user doesn’t know how much N-Alkylamide content they are getting, if any at all.
Panax Ginseng Extract (as G70X™):
Panax Ginseng is one of the most extensively studied and well-known herbs on the face of the earth and has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to help strengthen the immune system, promote virility, vitality, & libido, improve the body’s response to stress (both physical and psychological), enhance energy levels & improve cognition, and for a wide variety of other anti-aging and longevity properties.
Panax Ginseng is considered to be one of the worlds most powerful adaptogenic herbs. The word Panax is derived from the word ‘Panacea’, whose definition is ‘a solution or remedy for all difficulties or diseases and a source of longevity and physical strength and resistance.
What are Ginsenosides?
Ginsenosides are the unique active compounds (plant saponins) found in Panax ginseng. There are many different types of Ginsenosides, each with their own unique potential benefits.
There are many different Ginsenosides, and each have their own unique properties and potential. Some Ginsenosides have the ability to support lean muscle and strength (through a variety of potential pathways), others have the ability to support fat loss and improved body-composition (through multiple methods of action), and some have structural similarities to anabolic hormones such as testosterone. Some Ginsenosides bind to the androgen receptors, and some appear to promote the better functioning of the androgen receptors to support higher natural anabolic levels.
What is G70X™?
As discussed above, there are many different Ginsenosides with a wide variety of unique properties and potential benefits.
G70X™ is a specialized Panax Ginseng Extract that is standardized to a minimum 70% Ginsenoside content of select Ginsenosides that are geared primarily to support libido, improved performance, lean muscle, strength, fat loss, & improved body-composition benefits.
Cistanche (as C30X™):
Cistanche is an adaptogenic and restorative tonic herb that has been used for centuries primarily for its natural testosterone, libido, virility, and vitality benefits.
Echinacoside is the active ingredient in Cistanche that is thought to be responsible for many of Cistanche’s potential neuroprotective, anti-aging & longevity, and libido, virility, & vitality benefits.
Many Cistanche raw materials are not extracts and provide little or no Echinacoside and many Cistanche raw materials that are extracts provide very small amounts of Echinacoside and/or inconsistent levels of Echinacoside.
Anabolic XT contains C30X™, an ultra-potent Cistanche Extract that contains a minimum 30% Echinacoside for maximum results.
Black Ginger Extract:
Black Ginger Extract (Kaempferia parviflora) is a rare and powerful ginger source that traditionally grows in Thailand and is thought to promote mental and emotional well-being and is commonly used to support increases in libido, vigor, vitality, energy, performance, stamina, and more.
Black Ginger Extract – Physical Performance & Muscular Endurance:
The ingestion of Black Ginger Extract has been found to enhance physical fitness performance and muscular endurance by improving inflammation and energy metabolism. Examples of improvements mentioned in studies include enhanced physical fitness, grip strength, leg strength, balance, endurance, locomotor activity, and more.
Black Ginger – Sexual Health & Libido:
Black Ginger has been used by males in Thailand for many years as an aphrodisiac and to help support increased vitality, virility, stamina, performance, & libido.
There are studies showing that Black Ginger Extract supports libido and that constituents of Black Ginger Extract support the inhibition of PDE5 activity resulting in smooth muscle relaxation, vasodilation, improved blood flow – which may support improved sexual performance and erection quality.
Black Ginger Extract – Cardiovascular Support Properties:
Constituents in Black Ginger have been found to exert mild relaxing properties on muscle tissue and endothelium (the thin membrane that lines the inside of the heart and blood vessels) while protecting the endothelium from stress by acting as antioxidants. These actions can support a positive effects on the entire cardiovascular system.
AstraGin® is a natural patented ingredient complex comprised of highly fractionated Astragalus membranaceus and Panax notoginseng and created using pharmaceutical grade extraction and processing technology and designed to help enhance nutrient absorption.
In short, AstraGin® is designed to help make sure you properly absorb the other great nutrients in Anabolic XT for maximum results.
