Arctigenin, the endurance drug in Arctium lappa ( BURDOCK )
Great Price, Fast shipping, & Free of: Sugar, soy, dairy, yeast, gluten, corn and additives.
I am using Burdock to help with endurance :
The medicinal plant Arctium lappa contains the lignan arctigenin, a substance that works like an endurance drug. Researchers at the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica in China discovered this when they did an animal study, from which you could deduce that an effective daily human dose of arctigenin would be a couple of dozen milligrams.

Arctium lappa
Arctium lappa's common name is Burdock. You can buy extracts of this plant in every drugstore and supplements shop, but we'd immediately add that we don't know how much arctigenin these extracts contain. Not long ago we wrote about a Japanese animal study which showed that arctigenin supplementation combined with fasting helped inhibit tumours.

In vitro

The Chinese exposed heart cells [H9C2] and muscle cells [C2C12] to increasing concentrations of arctigenin [structural formula shown below]. The higher the concentration of arctigenin, the more active AMPK the researchers found in the cells.

AMPK is the enzyme that tells cells that they have to be more careful with the energy they have, and that they need to burn more fatty acids and absorb more glucose. AMPK becomes active as a result of extended periods of physical exercise – and as a result of fasting.

Arctigenin also activated PGC-1-alpha. We'll spare you the complicated molecular story, but PGC-1-alpha is a key molecule in the provision of energy in cells. If you activate PGC-1-alpha, cells are able to make more and better mitochondria.

In vivo
The researchers then gave sedentary mice 8 mg per kg bodyweight arctigenin [ATG] every day for six weeks. They injected the lignan directly into the small intestine, a form of administration that imitates the effect of oral administration. The human equivalent of this dose would be about 60 mg per day. You'd probably need to add a couple of dozen milligrams more though because probably not all arctigenin would make it intact through the stomach.

A control group was given no active substances [Veh].

At the end of the six weeks the Chinese researchers got the mice to run on a treadmill until they reached the point of exhaustion. The figure below shows that the mice that had been given arctigenin were capable of running for 40 percent longer than the mice in the control group, and covered a 60 percent longer distance.
The researchers found the above indications of increased mitochondrial biogenesis in the mice that had been given arctigenin. Conclusion
"We demonstrated that arctigenin could efficiently increase rodent sedentary treadmill endurance via enhancing AMPK phosphorylation", the researchers wrote. "This natural product induced the accommodation of mitochondrial biogenesis and fatty acid oxidation pathway to promote mitochondrial oxidative capacity without actual physical activities."

"Our results have provided additional understanding of pharmacological functions for arctigenin and the traditional Chinese medicine Arctium lappa, and suggested the potential of arctigenin as a lead compound for anti-obesity or anti type 2 diabetes drug discovery."

Very pleased with my order
After finding this site, and looking through the products, and the prices, I was very pleased. I have used these products before so I know these are good prices.This being my first order from Bulk Supplements, I was surprised at how fast my order arrived (4 days), and very pleased with the way it was packaged. The heavy duty bags that the herbs are sent in, protect them from moisture and keep them fresh. They also have a ziplock so I can store them, and have access to them, with no trouble. They even stand up by themselves.The herbal power itself was so finely ground that it dissolved in liquid immediately. I had never seen a burdock root product so finely ground. It's a pleasure to use, I just spoon in the amount that I want, and stir. I don't even need to use my blender. It mixes perfectly with whatever I put it in, hot, or cold. At this point, I've only been using it for a few days so I can't say anything about the effects of it yet but, I will write an update later. As it stands now, I'm really pleased, and will definitely be reordering. In fact, Bulk Supplements has become my go-to site for all of my herbs, and related products.*

burdock for more testosterone
Great prices , fast shipping,Clean & Pure Powder. No Fillers.,Lab Tested for Verification & Guaranteed Purity
Every drugstore carries supplements containing extracts from the roots of greater burdock, or Arctium lappa. These are sold for greasy skin and acne, but according to researchers at Shandong University, the same supplements boost testosterone levels and libido.
The researchers tested these sexual aspects in an animal study, using 75 male young adult rats. The researchers divided the rats into five groups. Two of these functioned as a control group: one group received nothing [Control] and the other group were given a daily oral dose of sildenafil – the active ingredient in Viagra - for a period of 15 days. The three experimental groups were given a daily dose of 300, 600 and 1200 mg of a water-based Arctium lappa extract*

good
product arrived quickly. seems to be high quality, but I can't speak to effectiveness since I was only given 10 days to make the review. Minus 1 star because these bags have terrible zip closures that don't seal because the powder gets in them. *
