Turkesterone is a plant-derived anabolic compound sourced from a thistle-like plant called ajuga turkestanica. Ajuga turkestanica contains natural compounds which are similar in chemical structure to androgen and can have similar effects on the body.
Turkesterone has muscle-building effects and may assist with the maintenance of healthy testosterone levels. It can support the increase of muscle growth, boost the uptake of leucine in muscle cells and support muscle synthesis.
Turkesterone can also increase ATP synthesis, which helps increase exercise performance and decrease fatigue – this can help to breakthrough plateaus in training performance. It is also known to assist exercise recovery with the repair of muscle fibres and removal of lactic acid.
Turkesterone is an adaptogen and can help both physical and mental health with the effects of stress and fatigue. Anti-inflammatory properties, sleep support and liver-protecting effects have also been linked to Turkesterone.
