1) What is Symbiotropin?

Symbiotropin is a blend of vitamins, amino-acids, herbs and other nutrients designed to support memory, focus and overall brain function.

Gamma Amino Butyric Acid or GABA is an amino acid which also acts as the most important inhibitor neurotransmitter in the brain. Its benefits hence widely extend on the central nervous system, where it acts as a calming agent and relieves depression, anxiety, ADHD or epilepsy. However, GABA is also important in regulating muscle tone. The effect of GABA as a body building supplement is still not clear; however there are theories which claim that GABA stimulates synthesis of the Growth Hormone. Although GABA is considered generally safe, high doses may cause some side-effects such as anxiety, shortness of breath or tingling in the extremities. A daily dosage of GABA has not been established; however 1-2 g per day is the most common dosage.

Amino acids are essential body chemicals for a large number of functions and systems. Some may be manufactured by the body (non-essential amino acids), while some have to be taken from food (essential amino acids). There are 20 amino acids of which 9 are essential. For instance Lysine an essential amino acids also contained by Symbiotropin is a component of muscle protein. The amino acid plays a major role in calcium absorption, building muscle protein, recovering from sports injuries and helps regulate the body’s production of hormones, enzymes and antibodies. It is also an anxiolytic, die to its effect on Serotonin receptors.


2) What Are Symbiotropin Ingredients?

Symbiotropin includes the following ingredients: L-Glutamine, L-Arginine L-pyroglutamate, L-Lysine hydrochlorine, Anterior pituitary powder (porcine), Glycine, Gamma Aminobutyric Acid, Stevia extract (leaf), Citric acid, natural and artificial flavors, Magnesium Oxide, and docusate sodium.

3) Does Symbiotropin Work?

This product is mainly an amino-acids based dietary supplement.

One of the ingredients that play an active role in this blend is L-Glutamine, which is a naturally occurring amino acid that can be manufactured by the human body. Therefore, this is not an essential amino-acid, since essential amino-acids are not able to be naturally produced by the body. l-Glutamine may, however, become conditionally essential in certain situations, including for those who practice intense athletic activities. This chemical has been found to have several therapeutic effects and is often used as a medicine, while here it is used for its effects on boosting physical performance. This amino-acid is said to be the most important component of muscle protein, being involved in the building and repair of muscles. L-Glutamine is also involved in sustaining cell volume and hydration, being able to speed up the wound and burn healing and recovery. Additionally, it can maintain a healthy intestinal function and can aid with the immune system health. Although use is safe for most adults provided daily dose does not exceed 40 g, there are certain precautions and warning that advise avoidance of use for people suffering from mania, liver disease and pregnant and nursing women.

The daily dosage for Symbiotropin is of two effervescent sachets.

There are online testimonials about Symbiotropin. What is being said includes the following:

  • I have been a personal trainer for about ten years now, and I have used many of the products out there, but I believe that this is one of the best. I sleep better, I eat better, and I’ve also gained some muscle mass.

  • This product is excellent, it makes me sleep better and the next day energy is quite helpful with exercises. It also helped me burn some fat and increase my muscle mass.

Bottom Line

8) The Bottom Line – “Does it Work?”

Symbiotropin is promoted as an amino-acid mix designed to support muscle growth and repair during workouts. Consumers who report taking it generally claim the formula helped them get better sleep, muscle mass growth and more energy. There are some however who complain about the high price of the formulation and the fact that the product failed to deliver on the benefits claimed.

Some ingredients are known to cause side effects, although most are considered generally safe. We, hence, have reasons to believe the formula will accomplish its purpose for some consumers. Similar to most muscle mass growth products, this too works best when administered in cycles. We hence advise you carefully read the label before using the formula.

This product gives me extra energy indeed, but I don’t feel the amino-acids working on my muscle mass. Maybe it’s just me or maybe I’m not doing something right, because I have read some pretty amazing testimonials on this formula. I’ll keep using until I finish the first box and come back with a final review.

My brother and I started working out at the same time, but he used a dietary supplement form the first day. Just after two weeks I noticed considerable differences between us and decided I should use a supplement as well. After doing some research, I came across this one and in just one month I caught up with my brother.
