Muscle Gain with Laxogenin Capsules
Laxogenin is a plant based hormone which is isolated from the smilax sieboldii plant, a species common to China and Japan.
First isolated in 1992 it is considered a steroidal sapogenin similar to Tribulus, however it is proven to be much more effective.
The active ingredients Brassinosteroids are said to be responsible for the muscle building and strength properties, having a positive effect on lean muscle growth, by increasing protein synthesis and inhibiting muscle breakdown.
Bulk Nutrients' Laxogenin Capsules are blended with Phosphatidylcholine to enhance absorption and uptake, with each capsule containing 25mg of Laxogenin and 100mg of Phosphatidylcholine.
A typical dose of Laxogenin is 2 Capsules (50mg) per day. This is based on an 85kg man.
Daily dose of Laxogenin can be split between morning and night.
For best results we recommend cycling off the product for a period after 4 - 6 weeks of continual dosing.

Frequently asked questions about Laxogenin
What is Laxogenin?
Laxogenin is a sapogenin, a natural anabolic agent which is derived from the plant smilax siboldii. It is said to have similar effects to anabolic compounds, however, Laxogenin is natural and is not liver toxic.
It is primarily taken to improve strength and increase muscle volume, as well as to increase recovery after training.
What is a typical dose of Laxogenin?
A standard dose is approximately 100mg, which is 4 x 25mg capsules of the Bulk Nutrients product. Some people use lower doses, while others prefer higher doses. Dosing around 200mg has been reported to cause headaches, which is why doses around 100mg are recommended.
How does Laxogenin work in the body?
Laxogenin is said to work by promoting lipolysis by binding to the androgen receptor. By enhancing triiodothyronine (T3) and reducing thyroid binding globulin. The closet evidence for Laxogenin's effectiveness is a study completed on rats using the brassinosteroid, 28-Homobrassinolide (HB). The results were that it stimulated protein synthesis and inhibited protein degradation.
Notably, the study showed positive effects with no androgenic side effects.
What kind of real world benefits can I expect from Laxogenin?
Recovery from injury may well be faster. Strength will be improved, in a similar way to using a product such as creatine.
Which people should / shouldn’t use Laxogenin?
Competitive “natural” athletes should be great responders to Laxogenin
Athletes who are suffering from injury could use Laxogenin during the recovery process.
While still useful for women, men seem to respond better to Laxogenin due to the effects of testosterone on brassinosteroids. Higher testosterone levels seem to further enhance its benefits. This is backed up by some women being virtually “non responders”.
Is Laxogenin ok for drug tested / natural athletes?
Laxogenin is not on any WADA / ASADA prohibited substance lists as of August 2018. Laxogenin does not raise testosterone so it is very unlikely it could trigger a failed test due to hormonal level changes.
What about absorption, is this a problem with Laxogenin?
Laxogenin appears to have some issues with absorption, which can be countered one of two ways. The first is by transdermal absorption (applying it to the skin as a lotion) the other when combined with another compound, such as phosphatidylcholine which can assist absorption.
At Bulk Nutrients, we have included phosphatidylcholine at 100mg per capsule alongside 25mg of Laxogenin to increase absorption.
What time of the day should I use Laxogenin?
There is no right or wrong time of the day to take Laxogenin, the most important thing is using it daily, so don’t skip doses. If doses are missed, we do not recommend extra is consumed.
Can I take Laxogenin with other supplements?
Laxogenin is fine to use with other supplements such as creatine, glutamine, protein etc. It is logical that Laxogenin would be even more effective when combined with products such as testosterone boosters, as anecdotal reports suggest effects seem to be greater when testosterone levels are higher (hence why men are better responders).
Does Laxogenin require cycling?
Studies on rats using 28-Homobrassinolide showed that no androgenic side effects were recorded, and that hormonal levels are not affected. Anecdotal reports of Laxogenin suggest that many people find optimum benefits when cycles between 8 – 10 weeks are run. An “off” period of 4 – 6 weeks would then follow.
How do I know that Bulk Nutrients' Laxogenin is real?
Laxogenin is an extremely expensive compound, one that we pay a lot of money for. We purchase Laxogenin from our very trusted supplier (who we have dealt with for over 5 years and supplies us with millions of dollars’ worth of stock each year), we only receive the Laxogenin after approving the laboratory reports on its purity.
Bulk Nutrients regularly tests its own compounds for purity in Australia through HPLC testing, with our ingredients having an impeccable record. We 100% guarantee the purity and potency of our Laxogenin.
Is the packaging Laxogenin product recyclable?
Yes! The capsule container and lid can be recycled as hard plastics in your local council pickup.
If you'd like more information, check this article which breaks down how Bulk's various products' packaging can be recycled.
Can I receive a discount buying more than one bottle of Laxogenin at once?
Absolutely! Price breaks for Laxogenin begin when you purchase 4 units. Just add more than that to your cart to see the savings.
Are Laxogenin Capsules Vegetarian/Vegan Friendly?
Yes they are! Previously Bulk Nutrients' capsulated products used gelatin based capsules, however in early 2019 we switched our range to use vegetable based capsules. This means our Laxogenin Capsules are now 100% vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Laxogenin Capsules Reviews
I was a little hesitant at first about using a testosterone booster as a female. However I trusted my coach and used this one with great results. It not only helped me build muscle but shed body fat quite quickly. Would definitely recommend it!
Been using for 6 weeks now and im very happy with the results. Gained strength and fullness in muscles with quicker recovery. I would recommend laxogenin to anyone looking for that extra edge in muscle building. With a clean diet you will see some amazing results.
Used 100mg for 4 weeks with the joint complex and it works, no doubts from me. It's a cortisol inhibitor so its benefits for me was being able to train without pain(thumb, shoulder,back,hip), pushing harder with more confidence. And that equals gains. Training on and off it is like night and day, taken with testmax and dim and this 40 something feels like a teenager.
By far the best strength product I have used, far better than Tribulus and didn't get the negative side affects that I experienced with D-Aspartic Acid. Feel strong without the grumpyness of other Test Boosters. Onto my 2nd bottle taking 3 caps per day at the moment which seems to be about right for me
Been using it for a week, looks fine, not over the top, I have been taking 3 caps twice a day, may increase the dose and reassess
I've been training for over 30 yrs and I have tried most test boosters on the market with minimal result, that was until I tried Laxogenin. I have to say this is the best one I have tried with good increases in libido ( I'm 52 so any increase is good), general well being and more energy. Hands down would definitely recommend this product to any older male looking for a boost naturally.
Done a full 4 week cycle. Did not notice anything as far as general feeling i.e mood, thermogenic, etc. I would say though that body fat seem to stay b reduced ion a sometimes loose diet. I did feel like i had slightly more push in the gym. Interested to see what the second cycle brings. Not sure at this stage whether i would buy again.
Well I've cycled off it and back on it, and now I'm assuming it's better just to go one week without and then back on. It's a great product that does wonders. Has allowed me to increase Bench and many other lifts, feeling of well being also and increased metabolism.
Just started a second cycle a few days ago and I'm already feeling the results.
Every body is different and reacts to supps in different ways. In the past I've tried a bunch of different test boosters based on DAA or Tribulus and no matter the brand or the dosage I would always seem to get the opposite results of what was promised, such as a huge drop in libido and feeling more anxious and weaker in the gym.
I also have a condition called Adrenal Fatigue which makes bodybuilding and the stresses of everyday life take more of a toll on my body. When I heard this product can inhibit cortisol, I was very keen to give it a try as well as being somewhat skeptical due to my previous results with test boosters.
The results I've experienced from this product are all positive. The most obvious is just feeling like a boss, which in my case means I'm standing up straighter, more energetic and confident. I feel a lot less socially awkward and have found myself having conversations with random people in the street.
I've noticed a decent increase in my appetite which has helped me to increase my daily protein and calorie intake resulting in more lean muscle.
My libido has increased.
I've found a huge increase in aggression which is great when i can channel it in the gym, I've been able to lift heavier weights and do more sets. I feel like my body is recovering a lot faster which in my case means I can do a proper workout just about everyday, something that seemed impossible with adrenal fatigue.
The increased aggression could be seen as a a problem when someone is rude to you or when you encounter idiots on the road, lucky the cops just gave me a warning haha.
I've played around with the dosage and timing a fair bit, what I found most effective for me is 4 caps first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. I'm taking it with 1 of the Bulk Nutrients Diindolylmethane cap along with my prescribed Adrenal Fatigue medication.
It probably sounds cliche but this product has changed my life and I would highly recommend it to anyone with Adrenal Fatigue.
