Ecdisten® is a naturally occurring compound found in plants and insects, which has recently become popular as a supplement for supporting optimal levels of male hormones and post-resistance training recovery. Beta Ecdysterone has fairly extensive research that has been published, and so far shows exceptional benefits. One study on Beta Ecdysterone found a 20% increase in protein synthesis via stimulation of the PI3K pathway. It is actually a powerful compound for converting protein and increasing protein synthesis in the body, which is the key to building more muscle mass and increasing overall strength Another study found that after 10 weeks of Beta Ecdysterone use combined with resistance training participants gained nearly 2 kg in lean muscle mass. Ecdisten® is a cutting edge anabolic and anti-proteolytic compound, which helps keep your body in a state of anabolism instead of catabolism.
Ecdisten® is extracted from Rhaponticum carthamoides (Willd.) Iljin, syn. Leuzea carthamoides (Willd.) DC, is a large perennial herb in the compositae family. This herb is another hidden jewel. Rhaponticum carthamoides extract (RCE) has demonstrated a normalizing effect on the central nervous and cardiovascular systems. RCE improves sleep, appetite, mood, mental and physical state, and the functional ability of humans under working conditions. It is a classic adaptogen, possessing a wide spectrum of anabolic activities, acting on the contractile proteins of the skeletal muscles. It builds lean muscle, reduces body fat, improves work and/or athletic performance, improves mental acuity, and delays the effects of aging. Extracts of this potent plant have been approved by the Ministry of Public Health in the former Soviet Union over 20 years ago to be used for “raising the mental and physical working ability” as a pharmacological preparation.
Ecdisten® is perfect for:
- Anyone who wants to build muscle and/or enhance athletic performance.
- Anyone who wants a supplement that will complement (rather than be redundant to) his or her current athletic supplement stack.
- Athletes who are avoiding androgen supplements (e.g., women), but still want to promote muscle growth.
For hormonal support or post-workout recovery, we recommend taking 1-2 tables of Ecdisten per day with or without food. Do not excee 4 tablets per day.
