If your training, looking for increased recovery, wanting to put on some muscle and gain some strength it is the perfect supplement for you.

What is Turkesterone?

Turkesterone is a supplement derived from the plant Ajuga Turkestanica from the Lamiaceae family native to mountain ranges of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan in Central Asia. This plant and other forms of the Ajuga species of flowers have been used in traditional societies as a healing tonic. 

Turkesterone is an ecdysteroid or anabolic substance found in some plants, arthropods, and fungi. Ecdysteroids support molting (shedding of the exoskeleton), development, and reproduction in arthropods.

There are numerous ecdysteroids, including ecdysone, ecdysterone, turkesterone,

and 2-deoxyecdysone. You might be surprised to learn that plants can also contain

phytoecdysteroids to deter insects from eating them.

Even though Turkesterone seems to be a modern discovery in the past few years,

it was isolated in 1975 when a Russian scientist published this scientific paper.

From the mid-1970s into the 1980s, Russian Olympic athletes were suspected of

using ecdysterone (beta-ecdysone), sometimes referred to as the “Russian secret.”  

Turkesterone and ecdysterone seem to be the two ecdysteroids that might offer some of the most potential benefits in terms of performance enhancement.

What will it do?
The science shows that it will increase your strength which will lead to greater muscle gains, it will help with recovery and It is also shown to increase protein synthesis so the protein in your diet will be more easily synthesized into muscle tissue.

Initial human studies have shown that athletes who consumed 1000mg of Turkesterone per day for a total of 10 weeks reported an increase in muscle hypertrophy & strength, gaining an average of 3.2kg of lean muscle mass over the 10 week

It’s thought that Turkesterone acts as an agonist for receptors that stimulate anabolic and adaptogenic responses. The added benefits seem promising that Turkestersone also helps with metabolizing lipids and carbohydrates, thus supporting fat loss while maintaining skeletal muscle and body composition. 

Some of the expected benefits or anecdotal success stories of Turkesterone center around the following: 


Is Turkesterone Safe?
With the various studies that have been done on Turk there have been no side effects that have been seen to warrant any serious concern. The known issue with ecdysteroids is that they are easily metabolised in the body so larger amounts may be needed. has the strongest Turkesterone on the New Zealand market, check out our products today.
