FRAC (ferulic acid) and its related compound gamma oryzanol have been advertised as being anabolic agents. Claims have been made of studies comparing FRAC with high doses of anabolic steroids, and that FRAC is nearly as good. The thing is these studies don't seen to be available, and who would authorise a study with subjects taking very high doses of anabolic steroids? I just cannot see them being effective. In fact studies have shown actual decrease in luteinizing hormone levels when supplementing with FRAC, which would lead to a reduction in testosterone production.
