Cathinones for muscle building in cattle breeding

In many countries anabolic agents like cathinones  are successfully used to increase the rate of growth of cattle.  Cathinones belong to the group of wake-up amines. A prominent example is 3MMC, which has recently appeared on the market in increasing quantities. The intake of wake-up amines is considered doping and causes an improvement of the coordinative abilities during sportive stress. The cathinones cause a stimulation of the central nervous system (CNS). This leads to an improvement in the interaction between the CNS and the muscles. Especially in states of fatigue, wake-up amines have a performance-enhancing effect. The fatigue-induced decline in performance can thus be counteracted by wake-up amines. This is why wake-up amines are used in endurance sports.
