What is Turkesterone?


Turkesterone belongs to a class of biologically active compounds called ecdysterone, which are naturally occurring in some plant and insect life. Turkesterone is derived from the Ajuga turkestanica plant. Ecdysterones produce similar effects to anabolic agents without androgenic effects. Various studies have found ecdysteroids to improve growth and endurance with no negative side effects. 

A recent study on the effect of Turkesterone supplementations in humans found to increase power and strength in performance (1). Another study comparing the anabolic activity of Phytoecdysteroids and Steranabols found Turkesterone to increase more weight than methylandrostenediol and nerobol (2). Traditionally, Ajuga turkestanica was used to treat muscle and stomach aches (3). The effect of Turkestrone increases muscle growth by promoting protein synthesis and decreasing protein catabolism by increasing amino acids such as leucine uptake into muscle cell (4). Turkestrone shows similar effects to anabolic agents however it does not cause adverse side effects due to it not binding to androgen receptors (5).

We offer Turkesterone with a Hydroxypropyl-β-Cyclodextrin complex, which enhances the bioavailability of Turkesterone. You can find our Turkesterone 10% Hydroxypropyl-β-Cyclodextrin complex here
