Tomatidine supplements like capsules, powders, and tomatidine tablets are - in my opinion - the future of wellness enhancement given recent research.
So, I reached out to the only legitimate tomatidine lab and supplier in the U.S. and did a deep dive into dosage calculations to bring you the best info on this exciting new compound.
What Can Tomatidine Do?
+30% STRENGTH AND +10% LEAN MUSCLE
According to research reported here by Science Daily.
"You know how ego-crushing it is to see yourself physically decline with age?" Said come-back fitness pro Mike Hardy.
"I've been there."
"That's why I take Ursolodine year round."
"Once you start on it - the fatigue, the muscle loss, the frustration - it all fades away. It's like nothing you've ever experienced."
Hardy summarized his support by saying:
"If you can grasp the next thing I'm about to say - you'll agree that interventions like tomatidine will completely transform your life..."
"90% of people over the age of 35 lose enough muscle every year to burn off an additional 4 pounds of body fat.
So you not only lose the only thing on your body that creates shape, tone, and strength—you also gain more fat every year, even if your calories stay the same."
"That's a reality check, and if you surround yourself with naysayers who are constantly talking about growing old, all their aches and pains, and how life is just down hill after 40—LEAVE! - Take control, because now it's possible."
When reached for comment, LZR spokesperson Lindsey Bradford had this to say about their flagship tomatidine supplement...
"Ursolodine was a collaborative effort in the end."
"1,250 customers helped Ursolodine come to be by preordering and showing huge support for the product. Within hours of launching we sold out our first batch ever"
Potential customers join a waitlist when downtime occurs between batches (sometimes up to 4 weeks).
These waitlisters opt-in to get alerts about new stock via email or even text.
However, at least one customer we spoke with suspected the alert system plays favorites... notifying high-quantity repeat customers and small supplement stores preferentially.
Steve Markman, an avid crossfitter from Florida, noted over the phone:
“Within 30 minutes of my alert this past weekend the stock had already vanished online... [But] my cousin in Atlanta always orders in bulk for his shop and got an alert a full 2 hours earlier than I did.”
At this time Ursolodine isn’t available as a subscription plan, keeping a relatively exclusive list of customers on edge for the only tomatidine based supplement available in the U.S.
From this glance into the market we can see that availability is definitely an issue.
Analyzing Tomatidine Dosage
In studies on tomatidine, mice were given 50mg per kg of bodyweight.
With the mice at 0.15kg, they were receiving 7.5mg daily for 8 weeks.
Using the Journal of Clinical Pharmacy standards (FDA approved for calculating human dose conversions), we get a clear idea of proper tomatidine dosage.
For a 150 lb. man to see results similar to those we’ve seen in the research, he would need to dose his tomatidine between 90 - 110 mg daily.
This relatively low dosing protocol makes tomatidine “significantly more potent than ursolic acid” Christopher Adams, M.D., Ph.D. and associate professor with the University of Iowa told Science Daily.
Adams also reported that tomatidine has slightly different mechanisms of action compared to ursolic acid, leading some researchers to hypothesize that the two compounds could work together synergistically, yielding even greater results.
Indeed, this cooperation between the two adaptogens is what prompted LZR to combine them in their latest adaptogen blend according to Bradford in response to an email follow-up.
