Research Around One of the Most Nutrient-Dense Foods on Earth

MYOS RENS Technology is excited to announce the launch of YOLKED®, a revolutionary formula for better health. Our team of scientists identified a natural bioactive composition called Fortetropin®, derived from fertilized egg yolk using a unique high-grade, patented process. Fortetropin® is a revolutionary, all-natural product that delivers the nutrients and benefits of raw, fertilized egg yolk in a delicious, safe to consume formula.

Adding YOLKED® to your diet can promote:

MUSCLE HEALTH

YOLKED® promotes muscle growth and development. YOLKED® is made from the most nutrition-dense food on earth: fertilized egg yolk. Researchers at the University of Illinois showed that consuming egg yolk increased the rate of muscle protein synthesis [1]. In a placebo-controlled study, subjects who consumed YOLKED® gained significantly more muscle mass relative to placebo while performing resistance training [2]. In a rodent study, YOLKED® was shown to upregulate muscle-building pathways while downregulating muscle-destroying pathways [2]. Mind your muscles and get YOLKED®!

CARDIOVASULAR HEALTH

Daily consumption of YOLKED® may improve your cardiovascular health. A 2018 study involving ~0.5 million adults (average age = 51 years) showed that participants who consumed eggs on a daily basis had a lower risk of heart disk and stroke relative to those who avoided eggs [1]. For many decades, eggs were associated with an elevated risk of cardiovascular disease. What changed? A Harvard study involving 120,000 participants found that eating one egg per day does not increase the risk of heart disease in healthy people [2-3].

EYE HEALTH

Consuming YOLKED® may help improve your eye health. YOLKED® is a rich source of lutein and zeaxanthin, two powerful anti-oxidants that have been shown to prevent age-related macular degeneration (AMD) [1,2]. AMD is one of the leading causes of blindness in the Western World.

BONE HEALTH

Adding YOLKED® to your daily regimen may help improve the health of your bones. YOLKED® is a rich source of Vitamin D that is essential for calcium absorption, a process that is necessary to maintain healthy bones [1]. YOLKED® has been shown to stimulate muscle growth and development [2,3], and there is extensive “crosstalk” between muscle tissue and bone. Muscle tissue secretes “myokines” such as insulin growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) that play an important role in bone development [4].

One of the best things that you can do for your bones is to mind your muscles!

WEIGHT LOSS

Eating YOLKED® once a day can actually help you lose weight. YOLKED® is made from fertilized egg yolk, one of the most “nutrient-dense” food sources known to humanity. At a cost of only 70 calories, one egg provides 5 grams of fat, 6 grams of protein, and 0 grams of carbohydrates in addition to valuable vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin D, calcium and zinc. Because it takes your body much longer to digest fats and protein relative to carbohydrates, eggs leave you feeling satiated (full) for much longer, reducing the need to eat in between meals. In a 2005 study published by researchers at St. Louis University, overweight participants who consumed an egg-based breakfast were found to consume fewer calories before lunch relative to those who consumed a bagel-based breakfast [1].

Calorie-for-calorie, eggs are a fantastic food source, and few doctors would disagree that one of the best weight loss strategies is to eat less and exercise more!

BRAIN HEALTH

Getting YOLKED® everyday may promote brain health. YOLKED® is a rich source of the nutrient, choline, which is an important precursor for the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, and plays a pivotal role in brain development. Researchers at the University of Illinois demonstrated in a study involving pigs that a deficiency in choline results in altered gray matter and reduced white matter in the brains of young pigs [1].
