What is Ajuga Turkestanica extract?
Ajuga Turkestanica extract is a 100% natural and vegan product. It is a plant extract that is full of ecdysteroids such as Turkesterone and ecdysterone. These substances occur naturally in this plant extract and have powerful effects for athletes. Ecdysteroids are also found in several superfoods that you can find in the supermarket. Both spinach and quinoa contain ecdysteroids and are therefore also good foods for strength athletes. The advantage of our Turkesterone is that it is present in a higher concentration, making the effect more noticeable.
What is Turkesterone?
This Turkesterone product is our natural variant with the Turkesterone extract standardized at 2%. The percentage with this version of Turkesterone is lower than our Turkesterone Plus, on the other hand, this version is 100% natural and vegan. No additional ingredients have been added. All in all, Turkesterone is one of the most powerful supplements to boost your body during exercise, naturally!
How do ecdysteroids like Turkesterone work?
Ecdysteroids are steroids that act like androgens in the body, for example testosterone. Some examples of ecdysteroids are Ecdysone, Ecdysterone, and Turkesterone, of which Turkesterone is the most potent of the three. Because these natural ecdysteroids have a similar chemical structure to androgens, they provide strong testosterone-like effects. This property enhances various processes in the body, such as protein synthesis and activation of the estrogen receptor beta.
Protein synthesis is the process by which proteins are made. When the production of protein exceeds its breakdown, muscle mass growth (anabolism) takes place. When using our Turkesterone supplements, this process can be enhanced, increasing muscle growth. Research shows that the estrogen receptor beta is involved in muscle growth and repair. The combination of these processes, among other things, ensures the powerful effect of Turkesterone for strength athletes.
These processes take place without the steroid binding to androgen receptors, so that the hormonal system is not affected, this is supported by the studies done so far. This would mean that Turkesterone has no nasty side effects as is the case with testosterone supplements and other anabolic steroids. In addition, the Turkesterone is tested for various harmful substances such as pesticides, fungi, heavy metals and bacteria such as Salmonella, to ensure safety. This is done with the HPLC method, the certificate of this test can be found here.
Is Turkesterone Safe?
Recent studies have found no negative side effects with long-term use of Turkesterone. This suggests that Turkesterone is completely safe to use. However, we do recommend taking a break every now and then to prevent the body from becoming dependent on Turkesterone, which can be the case with many substances. The only possible side effect is nausea after taking it on an empty stomach. We therefore recommend taking the capsules during or just after a meal.
Where does Turkesterone come from?
Thus, Turkesterone comes from the Ajuga Turkestanica extract, but what exactly is it? 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 already been used in herbal medicine because it is said to have medicinal properties. Later, its powerful effects were discovered by the sports world, and now Turkesterone is also used by athletes. Russian athletes have been using this product at the Olympics for many years, regularly resulting in victories for the Russians..
How to dose Turkesterone?
We recommend taking two Turkesterone capsules per day. A recommended daily allowance has not yet been established, so an exact amount cannot be stated. If necessary, consult a physician to determine an effective dose. Several athletes on the internet share their experiences and often different Turkesterone dosages are used.
