Hygetropin increases the transportation of amino acids to the cells of the body, thus stimulating protein synthesis and slowing the processes of catabolism. This results in active growth of bone and muscle tissue, as well as in increase of lean muscle mass. It reduces lipids and lipoproteins. Hygetropin inhibits the sensitivity to insulin, thus normalizing the level of sugar in blood. It provides retention of sodium, potassium and phosphorus. Hygetropin is also a highly effective anti-aging agent.
