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) and is one of the primary bioactive compounds naturally occurring in Ajuga Turkestanica plant found In Uzbekistan.
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.
Does Turkesterone Have Side Effects?
Although Turkesterone is sought out for its anabolic, muscle-building properties it is important to note that it does not have androgenic properties, and thus does NOT disrupt human hormones like other synthetic anabolic agents.
Is Turkesterone Legal?
Turkesterone and Ecdysterone are both naturally occurring hormones and are currently allowed in all forms. However due to their ability to increase athletic performance, historically ingredients like this do find their way to the list of prohibited substances.
Turkesterone Vs Ecdysterone
You may respond to one better than the other, or both taken together. Turkesterone and Ecdysterone have similarities and differences.
They are both ecdysteroids
Both show promising benefits in animal trials
Ecdysterone has a published human trial
Turkesterone is an analog of ecdysterone and may be slightly more anabolic
Neither are androgenic and do not disrupt human hormone levels
They both have similar benefits
Neither have shown significant toxicity side effects
