Ecdysterone is a powerful compound that can help to maximise your genetic potential to build muscle.
It exists in the herbs Rhaponticium and Cyanatis Vaga. Although it has been known about for many years the expense associated with its extraction meant it was not viable for commercial production. Recent advancements in extraction technology, through in-vitrio cultivation, have made wholesale production possible.
Ecdysterone has been subjected to over 50 studies with the following major findings:
1. It increases lean muscle mass.
2. It increases endurance.
3. It stimulates metabolism.
4. It decreases blood sugar levels.
5. It reduces fatty tissue.
6. It prevents loss of muscle mass and promotes growth of muscle fibers.
7. It is suitable for both men and women and has no known side effects.
Research: Research has been done to explore the effects of
phytoecdysteroids in mammals. Considering the structural
similarity between plant steroid molecules and animal
steroid molecules, it was speculated that these ecdysteroids might have hormonal effects in animals.
To explore the “myotropic” (muscle-promoting) effects of ecdysterone, researchers tested two groups of animals, one using ecdysterone and the other using Russian dianabol (Dbol).
It was shown that “ecdysterone, possessing a wider spectrum of the anabolic action on the contractile proteins of the skeletal muscles, exerts a more pronounced influence on physical endurance” than dianabol.
Now, that is a strong statement! Not only did the ecdysterone have a more pronounced effect on muscle performance, it also increased protein synthesis in a variety of slow- and fast-twitch fibers, whereas the dianabol only induced protein synthesis in slow-twitch fibers
Research: Scientists have performed over 50 studies on ecdysterone to conclude one resounding agreement: Ecdysterone is safe and it improves nearly every bodily function...without side effects.
Ecdysterone has been tested for its effects on work capacity, immune function, lean body mass and fat loss, among other variables in a number of scientific studies. The vast majority of research indicates an increase in test subjects' lean mass. Results were further improved when ecdysterone was consumed with protein.
The recommended dose for Ecdysterone is 80-120 mg per day although dosages of up to 600 mg per day can be safely taken.
Summary: Ecdysterone seems to create a kind muscle building environment in the body by maintaining a positive nitrogen balance and by increasing protein synthesis.
