JD Nutraceuticals Beta Ecdysterone
Beta Ecdysterone is a well-known plant steroid that has flown under the radar with the popularity of Turkesterone. It is an ecdysteroid which is found naturally in plants and insects and plays an important structural and functional role for both. With its use in middle eastern countries and historically used by the Russians it isn’t something that is exactly “new”. In the 1980s the most active phytoecdysteroid, ecdysterone was suspected to be used by Russian Olympic athletes.
What is Beta Ecdysterone?
Beta Ecdysterone is an ecdysteroid which are hormones that are found in plants, insects and arthropods. On a molecular level, ecdysteroids are synthesized from dietary cholesterol once metabolised. Then ecdysteroids are understood to play an essential role in morphogenesis, which is the process required for tissue development. Humans also have receptors for ecdysteroids and when activated promote various health benefits including muscle growth.
Beta-Cyclodextrin Complex is an important part of this product to consider as this will essentially help pull more nutrients (The Ecdy) through the stomach lining more effeciently.

Beta Ecdysterone vs Turkesterone
Beta Ecdysterone is almost seen as the big brother of Turkesterone due to it having been around for so long. It has been over-shadowed by the popularity of the Turk more recently which is surprising considering the research and history of the compound. Using the Turkesterone or the Beta Ecdysterone will inevitably enhance body composition. Stacking the two compounds together well that is something else! Power Supps now has the “Mass Stack” which comprises 2 of the strongest plant compounds available, The JD Nutraceuticals Beta Ecdysterone and the Fantom Sports Turkesterone.
Consume 1-2 capsules (500mg-1,000mg) once a day with a protein rich meal. Beta Ecdysterone has been said to not contain any side effects such as testosterone suppression, however if you are experiencing any negative side effects, please seek help from a health care professional. You can also look to stack Beta Ecdysterone with Turkesterone to maximise results!
