20% Turkesterone Extract with Hydroxypropyl-Cyclodextrin Complex promotes growth anabolic effects that are a result of its estrogen receptor binding to potentially increase protein synthesis in skeletal muscles.
Turkesterone 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.).
With structural similarities to human muscle-building hormones, it's easy to see why Ecdysteroids such as Turkesterone are of great interest to sports scientists, strength athletes, and bodybuilders. In humans, positive effects of ecdysteroids observed include anabolic, anti-diabetic, and immune-stimulating changes. Turkesterone 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.
Turkesterone vs Ecdysterone
You may respond to one better than the other, or both taken together. Turkesterone and Ecdysterone have similarities and differences.
