Lee sourced the drug in its oral form, found the dose needed to give a metabolic effect, and gave it to 8 healthy men over a week.



"Energy metabolism increased by more than 10%, fat burning increased by more than 25%, while protein burning fell by 15%," he said.


"So although whole body metabolism increased, these men burned fat while reducing the burning of protein. That's a good thing because in the long run these effects may lead to a loss in fat mass and an increase in muscle.


"In this study, all 8 subjects tolerated the medication well without any significant increase in heart rate."

We'll see what happens.
