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.
Ecdysterone seems to create a kind muscle building environment in the body by maintaining a positive nitrogen balance and by increasing protein synthesis. The recommended dose for Ecdysterone is 80-120 mg per day although dosages of up to 600 mg per day can be safely taken.
