Beta-Ecdysterone, also known as 20-hydroxyecdysone, is a type of phytosteroid that occurs naturally in certain plants like spinach and quinoa, as well as arthropods. Ecdysterone belongs to a group of compounds known as ecdysteroids, which play a vital role in growth, reproduction, and defense against predators.
Ecdysteroids have a similar chemical structure to testosterone and are considered the most comparable "testosterone-like" compound found in arthropods. Research has shown that Beta-Ecdysterone can increase protein synthesis in skeletal muscle and improve physical endurance in rodents, suggesting its potential as a performance-enhancing supplement.
Each Capsule contains 300 mg Beta-Ecdysterone.
Muscle Building and Athletic Performance
Ecdysterone may aid muscle building by increasing protein synthesis, red blood cell production, bone growth and remodeling, and anabolism. Studies suggest that its anabolic effects are mediated through its estrogen receptor binding properties, which regulate skeletal muscle growth, regeneration, and immune function.
It also supports muscle protein synthesis by affecting PI3K/Akt signaling pathways.
Ecdysterone supplements may also enhance athletic performance by building muscle, reducing fatigue, and easing recovery.
In a 2019 study, participants who took ecdysterone-containing supplements for ten weeks experienced significant increases in muscle mass and one-repetition bench press performance.
Improving Insulin Sensitivity and Immune Function
Ecdysterone supplements may improve metabolic health, including preventing insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, and obesity.
It may also have adaptogenic effects, supporting homeostasis and immune function by increasing red blood cell number, improving sleep quality, thermal stress tolerance, cardiac function and circulation, and bone growth while also having anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
Ecdysterone is generally safe when not overused and does not cause significant side effects. It is not banned in the UK or USA but is on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) 2021 Monitoring Program list for more information.
