Plant Steroids Increase in Muscle Mass and Improve Physical Performance

Plant Steroids Hold Promise for Increase in Muscle Mass and Improve Physical Performance: When we talk about building muscles and physical performance, mustard green and cabbage can be very helpful. Research findings has shown that mustard green and other Brassica plants (e.g. cabbage or broccoli) contain brassinosteroids, which creates similar results as anabolic steroids. Many researchers are looking for these substances that can be used to give safe, natural and effective ways to promote endurance and athletic performance for us.


Research and presentations recently published at the conference attract attention from the authors of the study – Dr. Debora Esposito, a Postdoctoral Associate, Rutgers University, hosted by the N.C. State University Plants for Human Health Institute; Dr. Slavko Komarnytsky, Metabolic Biologist and Assistant Professor, Plants for Human Health Institute, and Dr. Ilya Raskin of Rutgers. 


Dr. Esposito studies how a plant steroid can affect the muscle cell in rats.

The study involved rat skeletal muscle cells and exposed them to different quantities of homobrassinolide, a plant steroid. After that, they measured the turnover of proteins and observed that muscle cells react to brassinosteroids by raising cellular protein synthesis and reducing cellular protein degradation. The result was a significant increase in the protein content of the net muscle. Afterwards, healthy rats were fed by homobrassinolide daily for 24 days. The body weight, food consumption and body composition of those rats were measured. The rats fed to the plant steroid reported an increase in lean body mass over those not fed to the substance. The findings of the study also demonstrates a growth in the number and size of muscle fibers that was essential for increased athletic fitness.


Researchers review the result of the research of plant steroid.

Results indicate that brassinosteroid therapy could represent a good alternative method to recover damaged muscles cells. Dr. Esposito also said that we may be able to grow plants with higher brassinosteroid content and create food ingredients that can cure diseases and increase athletic performance In the long term.
