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 is not something that is exactly new. In the 1980s the most active phytoecdysteroid, ecdysterone was suspected to be used by Russian Olympic athletes
Where does Beta Ecdysterone come from?
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 Ecdysterone Benefits
Lets take a look at some of the potential benefits of as an ecdysteroid.
- understood to play an essential role in morphogenesis, which is the process required for tissue development.
- possess anti-stress effects, which can indirectly support muscle building via optimizing cortisol levels in the body.
- human studies suggest it has some promising potential for athletes
- immune boosting and stimulating effects
Beta Ecdysterone Benefits for Bodybuilding
When a product displays any sort of anabolic effect on the body you know the bodybuilding community will be onto it straight away. What is worth noting is the fact that is causes little if no adverse side effects. This is huge and most anabolic compounds shut down natural testosterone levels. For natural bodybuilders this is the perfect product fo help build muscle naturally as fast as possible.
Beta Ecdysterone can also be used Post Cycle as a powerful natural compound to help maintain those gains. Whether it be from anabolics or SARMS, use Beta Ecdysterone post cycle for better recovery.
Is Beta Ecdysterone Natural?
With the various studies that have been done on Beta 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 for the desired results.
Is Beta Ecdysterone Legal?
Beta Ecdysterone is 100% legal (as of December 2021). What is worth noting is that this particular compound is actually on the WADA list of things that should be banned! The following statement was made from a study carried out to look at the effects of ecdysteroids.
“With respect to doping prevention the high anabolic potency of ecdysterone justifies its classification as an anabolic agent and therefore needs to be listed in the category “S1 Anabolic Agents” of the list of prohibited substances of the World Anti-Doping Agency.

How much Beta Ecdysterone to take?
Consume 1-4 capsules per day depending on dosage recommendations and intended goal. Using a general reference, 500-1000mg per day would be used for a beginner cycle with more advanced users going 1000-2000mg per day.
Beta Ecdysterone Supplements
Power Supps stocks multiple Turkesterone and Ecdysterone products. Both compounds are very similar, and we have found stacking them enhances the effects even more! Try them separately to see how they go or stack them for the ultimate muscle building stack.
Stacking Beta Ecdysterone
Beta Ecdysterone can be stacked well with other testosterone boosters, growth hormone boosters or estrogen blockers. It may also be used with fat loss supplements due to its possible ability to alter lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.
Stacking Beta Ecdysterone with another strong ecdysteroid like Turkesterone has shown compounding benefits. As these two compounds are seen as the strongest natural anabolic agents available, one can only image the benefits that can be made by stacking.
The Beta-Cyclodextrin-Complex is an absorbtion ingredient all compounds should have so you can ensure the maximum mg of uptake from your product.
Beta Ecdysterone PCT
This compound will not require a PCT as it does not cause any suppressions of natural levels. Ecdysteroids don’t show binding affinity to the AR (Androgen Receptop), but this is a good thing!!
When coming off a cycle of SARMS or steroids the general consensus is to come off everything. Some people like to play around with other compounds like NOLVA or CLOMID but you are essentially delaying the inevitable.
Using Ecdysteroids like Turkesterone and Beta Ecdysterone will give you the most anabolic compounds available that will not further cause suppression. Using these along with a good natural test booster like JD Nutraceuticals Testo Blast and DTF Hard will go a long way to keeping all those hard earned gains!
Beta Ecdysterone Australia
Power Supps is very happy that we can supply 100% pure Beta Ecdysterone to its customers. The combination of The Turk and Ecdy offers a great natural alternative for people looking to enhance their body composition.
Beta Ecdysterone Muscle Growth
Ecdy enhances muscle repair and growth by increasing muscle protein synthesis. There is also evidence to suggest that ecysteriods, such as Ecdy and Turk, are also able to increase muscle ATP content, which translates to increased muscular energy and endurance during exercise.
Beta Ecdysterone Reviews
Since ecdysteroids has not been commercially used for long periods of time the reviews are still coming through. BUT with the response from products like Gorilla Mind Turkesterone & Ecdysterone we KNOW its going to be absolutely EPIC. The readiness and keenness to use Turk and Ecdy clearly shows that individuals who have been lucky enough to use thse compound just want more!
Beta Ecdysterone FAQs
Does Beta Ecdysterone have any side effects?
The “Ecdy” (as we like to call it at Power Supps) does have one known side effect. The side effect included muscle building effects that can be observed after weeks of consuming the product. In all seriousness there is no known side effects currently. Due to it being a new compound we will likely see more research carried out on the actual ingredient itself. It can be noted that some individuals have felt a little nausea when taking the product on an empty stomach.
Is Beta Ecdysterone a steroid?
The industry got very excited when Ecdysteroids where first looked at because their structure looks very similar to androgenic hormones. If anything naturally occurring looks this way it can only mean a huge breakthrough with lots of new products.
When ecdysteroids didn’t show binding affinity to the AR (amongst other things) the research was largely abandoned and everyone forgot about the compounds.
When the studies moved away from androgenic receptors and looked into muscle protein synthesis rates everything changed. It was found that protein synthesis rates increased in animal muscle tissue!
If the ecdysteroid makes it to the muscle tissue, they increase protein synthesis, and they do it fast, powerfully and with a lasting effect.
Does Beta Ecdysterone actually work?
Lets wrap up what we know about Turkesterone!
- Ecdysteroids like Turkesterone & Beta Ecdysterone are naturally occurring plant and insect growth factors
- Humans have receptors for them
- They do not exhibit androgenic behaviour
- This means their safety profile is very high compared to other steroids
- They can increase protein synthesis rates
- They can have positive side effects for organs and general health
Gorilla Minds Beta Ecdysterone Australia
Gorilla Mind was one of the first companies to make ecdysteroid supplementation “popular”. They have been around for a long time but have almost flown under the radar with SARMS and other niche ingredients being available. One very important thing to look at with his product is the Hydroxypropyl-Beta-Cyclodextrin Complex that has been added to both the JD Nutraceuticals Beta Ecdysterone and Fantom Sports Turkesterone.
This is so important as it essentially enhances the ability for the Turkesterone to get absorbed by the body. One of the big issues faced with products is the ability for the active ingredient to get to the designed destination. With the Cyclodextrin complex added the chances are increased significantly.
