Break through plateaus and hit new PRs safely and naturally without ugly side effects. Ecdysterone extract promotes growth anabolic effects that are a result of its estrogen receptor binding to potentially increase protein synthesis in skeletal muscles.
The 95% Ecdysterone extract with hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin complex used in our formula is the highest bioavailable form of the compound in the world.
Research suggests its ability to promote anabolic activity in skeletal muscle, as well as increase cell proliferation and growth, which can lead to an increase in muscle mass.
Ecdysterone belongs to a family of compounds known as ecdysteroids that are found in plants, arthropods, and certain fungi that regulate molting (the skin shedding metamorphosis in crabs, centipedes, scorpions, etc.). For something that serves as an arthropod molting hormone necessary for the demanding processes of metamorphosis and with structural similarities to human muscle-building hormones, it's easy to see why Ecdysterone is of great interest to sports scientists, strength athletes, and bodybuilders. In humans, Ecdysterone is believed to lead to an increase in muscle mass by enhancing the muscles’ leucine intake and optimizing the mRNA translation process for increased protein synthesis.
Ecdysterone vs Turkesterone
You may respond to one better than the other, or both taken together. Turkesterone and Ecdysterone have similarities and differences.
