What is Glycerol Monostearate?

Glycerol Monostearate is a popular supplement for bodybuilders and models as it draws water into the muscles, giving an illusion of the muscles being ‘full'. This can make you look leaner and bigger than you actually are! The benefits are not just aesthetic though; the improvement in hydration can result in improved performance, particularly for endurance athletes.

Glycerol is a carbohydrate formed during the breakdown of fats in our body. Glycerol Monostearate is a fat which is formed when Glycerol is then esterified with Stearic Acid. Stearic Acid itself is a saturated fatty acid, however whereas in most cases saturated fat is bad for your cholesterol, Stearic Acid actually has a neutral or cholesterol-lowering effect on serum cholesterol levels in human studies.

Where to find Glycerol Monostearate:

Glycerol occurs naturally in the body. It can also be found in some foods where it is used as a sweetening agent, however this is in negligible amounts.

Glycerol Monostearate can also be referred to as:

Glycerol, Glycerin, Glycerine, GMS.

Why use Glycerol Monostearate?

Athletes supplement with Glycerol Monostearate for a variety of reasons, including:

Increasing Energy and Endurance

Studies have shown that Glycerol draws water into our bloodstream and then holds it there, almost acting as a sponge. For anybody who exercises, in particular endurance athletes, this can be extremely beneficial. Our bodies rely on water to function, and during strenuous exercise we can lose as much as 2kg (4.4lbs) of water. Supplementing with Glycerol however has the potential to reduce this dramatically, allowing the user to delay the onset of fatigue thereby increasing output and performance. Studies have also shown that drinking a water/Glycerol mixture before training helps to maintain a lower body temperature. This can be beneficial for any kind of endurance athlete, or in particular anybody who is exercising in warm conditions.

Improving absorption of other supplements

The quick improvement in hydration when ingesting Glycerol in supplemental form results in a faster delivery of nutrients when and where you need them the most, and a prolonged "pump effect" during your workouts.

Increasing Fat Loss

Well technically Glycerol won’t reduce your body fat, however it can give this illusion! It is commonly used by models and athletes before photo-shoots or competitions, as it gives the impression of increased definition and vascularity. When taken before exercise it can also provide the user with a prolonged ‘pump’, making muscles appear bigger than they actually are.

Health Benefits

Glycerol has no real health benefits to note. However its ability to prevent dehydration and maintain a lower body temperature could be useful for those living or holidaying in warm climates.

Glycerol MonoStearate
Seems to work as its described and hasn't got any real taste to it which is a good thing, cant get it to mix with water though which is frustrating. any suggestions? On 16/08/2014 Dewi said...

Its good stuff!
Got it to use as part of a AA stack, and had a lot left. So I decided to use it on its own. It actually very good at doing all of the above, you really do look bigger and leaner on it (obviously you are also more pumped) and it does help with energy levels.
Does not mix that great so the hardcore way is to shove it straight in the mouth and then wash down. Intra workout it kind of sits there and you have to keep diluting it. Its cheap as chips so worth sitcking into a stack if you have the pennies. On 24/06/2012 Shantha said...
