I was reading “Wake Up to Big Gains” in this month’s Flex magazine (so sue me - I read other stuff). They reference several studies about melatonin though never specifically name them (always a red flag). Their claim is that, taken before a workout,it “Promotes higher GH levels, protects against free radicals and increases bodyfat usage while sparing muscle glycogen levels.”
Has anyone else read it and if so, how legit do you think it is? I am not the smartest guy in the world (obviously because I still read Flex) so I am hoping someone with some actual knowledge can shed some light on this. Thanks in advance.
