Ecdy-Plex™ | Complexed Ecdysterone
What is Ecdysterone?
Ecdysterone is a naturally occurring hormone found in plants and animals. Studies have shown that Ecdysterone may promote an increase in lean muscle mass and an improvement in overall strength.
What makes this unique?
Complexed Ecdysterone is a more bioavailable form of Ecdysterone. What does that mean? Bioavailability determines how much of a supplement can be absorbed by the body to be used properly. There are many factors that impact bioavailability. For some compounds, their bioavailability is dramatically impacted by how water soluble they are. As Ecdysterone is a lipophilic compound with low solubility in water, it faces poor absorption issues in the gut. Absorption in the gastrointestinal tract is contingent on a molecules water-solubility.
Why is Ecdy-Plex the most bioavailable? This is because on a molecular level, Ecdysterone has been encapsulated in a compound called Hydroxypropyl-β-Cyclodextrin which acts as a shell to increase water solubility and support enhanced bioavailability. Studies have shown over 100x enhanced solubility of Ecdysterone when complexed with cyclodextrins.
While some people respond better than others, after 2-3 months of consistent use, users typically report:
- An increase in strength
- Overall boost in athletic performance
- Improved endurance
- Enhanced recovery time
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule twice per day. Advanced users may take 1 capsule three or four times per day.
