Follistatin-344 (an activin-binding protein) is an autocrine glycoprotein, formed in most tissues of the human body. The substance is encoded by the FST gene. For the first time Follistatin was detected in the follicular fluid, it is this fact that he owes his name. In the process of studying follistatin, its properties were found to influence the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, suppressing the production of follicle-stimulating hormone. By interacting with a protein activin, it blocks its ability to stimulate the production of follicle-stimulating hormone. Follistatin 344 has the ability to neutralize myostatin, the main factor in the destruction of muscle tissue.
Follistatin 344 was first studied in experiments with mice. In rodents with muscular fiber dystrophy and muscle pathologies, the treatment of tissues and the cessation of destruction of myofibrils were observed with the use of the drug. Healthy individuals under the influence of follistatin 344 were added in muscle mass and strength. Then experiments were carried out on monkeys, which proved that regulating the level of follistatin at a genetic level can significantly increase the strength and size of muscles.

Follistatin 344, acting as a myostatin-blocker, depresses its activity and, thus, the muscles do not lose under the influence of age or loads of their elasticity and strength. Also, muscle tissue under the influence of the drug is rejuvenated.
