What is Turkesterone?

Turkesterone is a promising new ecdysteroid that has seen encouraging results from studies into its efficacy for sports nutrition. Considered to be a “natural anabolic agent”, ecdysteroids have been known to impact muscular strength and mass since as far back as the 1980s.

Turkesterone in particular is one of the main bioactive compounds found naturally in the Ajuga turkestanica plant, but it can also be found in arthropods and insects.

What does it do?

The relatively few scientific studies that have been conducted on Turkesterone have been very promising, and have indicated that it is helpful in promoting lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, improving muscle protein synthesis, increasing strength and assisting muscle hypertrophy.

Most importantly, Turkesterone has so far shown little if any adverse side effects, and (unlike most anabolic compounds) doesn’t impede natural testosterone levels. These effects suggest that Turkesterone may have a binding reaction to receptors that promote anabolic and adaptogenic responses, while its ability to promote lipid and carbohydrate metabolism can assist with the maintenance of a healthy body composition and fat loss.

It is important to remember that these initial studies were only conducted on animals and not humans. We are yet to determine whether the full extent of the effects experienced by animals will be seen in humans.

How Should I Take Turkesterone?

An early human study showed that athletes who ingested a daily dose of 800mg of Turkesterone over a 10 week period saw an increase in muscular strength and hypertrophy, plus saw an average muscle mass gain of 3.2kg. (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31123801/).

Most brands are currently recommending a 500mg-1000mg daily dose of Turkesterone.

While there is currently no research that specifies a particular dosing regimen, Pack Nutrition recommends splitting a full daily intake into 2 separate daily doses for their BUILD Turkesterone Caps.

Turkesterone is currently believed to produce the best results in the medium-long term (weeks/months of consistent use), although some users claim to have noticed significant benefits within days.

Most Turkesterone users should expect to see results after consistent use for 2-4 weeks.
