Interesting study.  Within 12 hours after consumption of raw fertile eggs myostatin was reduced by 47% and stayed low for 24 hours.  That could make a huge difference if you eat them every day.

Very interesting! I haven't ate raw eggs in a long time because I used to do a dozen a day and that ended up making me sick. Might try them again and see what happens, although, these days I try and only eat foods from local farmers, and I'd be worried about eating raw foods from factory farms, but that's just me.

Just make sure they actually say fertile eggs on the container.  The follistatin is what reduces myostatin, and it is only found in large quantities in fertile eggs - especially the yolks.  Maybe you could find fertile eggs from local farmers?  Or at least organic or free range?

Oops, I missed the fertile part. I'm actually just reading the article now. I'm sure I could find some from local farmers if I asked, thanks for the info. Would be interesting to see what type of effect fresh fertile eggs would have on training.

EDIT: Also, this could be wrong, but it seems like eggs from local farmers have the chance of being more fertile than factory farm eggs? I don't know, never really thought about how fertile the eggs are before. Like I said, I'll ask.
