What is Ajuga Turkestanica extract?
Ajuga Turkestanica extract is a 100% natural plant extract that contains powerful ecdysteroids such as Turkesterone and Ecdysterone. These compounds are naturally present in this extract and have a powerful effect on athletes. Ecdysteroids can also be found in several supermarket superfoods. Both spinach and quinoa contain ecdysteroids and are therefore good foods for strength athletes. The advantage of our Turkesterone is that it contains a much higher concentration, which makes the effects much stronger.
How do Ecdysteroids like Turkesterone work?
Ecdysteroids are steroids that act like androgens in the body, like testosterone. Some examples of ecdysteroids are Ecdysone, Ecdysterone and Turkesterone, of which Turkesterone appears to be the most potent. Because the steroids have a similar chemical structure to androgens, they have strong testosterone-like effects. This strengthens several processes in the body, such as protein synthesis, but also the activation of the estrogen receptor beta.
Protein synthesis stands for the process of making proteins in the body. When the production of proteins exceeds the breakdown of proteins, we speak of muscle growth (anabolism). When using our Turkesterone supplement, this process can be enhanced, making muscle growth stronger. Research shows that the estrogen receptor beta is involved in the processes of muscle growth and repair. The combination of these processes causes the powerful effect of Turkesterone for strength athletes.
These processes happen without the active substances actually binding to the androgen receptors in the body, therefore the hormonal system is not affected, recent research indicates. From that you can conclude that Turkesterone does not have the unpleasant side effects who have anabolic supplements. In addition, our Turkesterone has been tested for multiple hazardous substances such as pesticides and heavy metals to ensure safety.The certificate can be found here.
Where does the Ajuga Turkestanica extract come from?
Turkesterone comes from the Ajuga Turkestanica Extract, but what exactly is that? The Ajuga Turkestanica Extract comes from the Ajuga Turkestanica plant that originally grows in Central Asia. The plant grows in mountainous areas and can survive at altitudes around 2500 meters. The plant has long been used in herbal medicine because it is said to contain medical effects. But over time, its powerful effects were discovered by athletes, and now Turkesterone is also used in daily sports practice..
