The Science Behind Turkesterone

Turkesterone 2 Week Review/Log

What is Turkesterone and WHAT DOES IT DO!?


Turkesterone is a naturally occuring "ecdysteroid" that induces many non-hormonal anabolic and ergogenic effects in mammals. At first glance scientists believed turkesterone to be a "specialized insect hormone" that promoted molting, but recent research translated from Russian studies shows that Turkesterone should be considered a new class of sterol-based essential vitamins (Slama et el,. 1996)!

Turkesterone is harvested from Rhaponticum carthamoides (Leuzea), a thistle-like herbaceous plant that grows in parts of Central Asia, Siberia, and Bulgaria.

Here is a list of some of the effects observed from ecdysterone supplementation (Chermnykh et al., 1988; Syrov et al., 1977; Kuzmenko et al., 1999; Slama et al., 1995; Mosharrof et al., 1987; Turova et al., 1974; Gerasyuta et al., 1980; Syrov et al., 1988; Syrov et al., 1985; Kurmukov et al., 1988; Smetanin, 1986; Simakin et al., 1988; Semeykin et al., 1991):

Effects Observed From Ecdysteroid Supplementation (Turkesterone is the strongest of Ecdysteroids 20 x Stronger at 40% HPLC):

* Increased synthesis of fast and slow twitch muscle fiber proteins
* Increased body weight via enhanced muscle to fat ratio
* Improved removal of lactic acid
* Increased muscle glycogen concentrations
* Enhanced ATP and PCr resynthesis
* Increased appetite
* Increased red blood cell number
* Improved quality of sleep
* Improved tolerance to thermal stress
* Stimulation of osteogenesis (bone growth)
* Improvements in cardiac function
* Anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects
* Mild anti-coagulant effects
* Enhanced resistance to infections
* Improved food conversion index (amt of food required to produce a constant unit of living mass)
* Slight stimulant effect on the CNS without elevating blood pressure
