For today’s issue of Dear Mark, I am answering questions about a rather mysterious app called: Turkesterone. I’ve been getting questions about it lately, especially with the promise of building muscle.
Turkesterone has exploded in popularity, but there is not much solid information yet. Compared to supplements that have human studies, such as: whey isolation or: creatine or: magnesium, you fly quite blind with Turkesterone. I had to sift through animal studies, obscure Russian studies, jokes to get my best opinion on this ingredient.
That’s not the final word, but I’ve been there for it so far.
So, without further ado, let’s get into the questions.
What is Turkesterone?
Turkesterone is an ecdosteroid, a class of compounds that act as growing compounds in plants and insects. Think of exhaustosteroids as cell growth stimulants, a type of hormone. In insects, they regulate assimilation, growth, and morphogenesis. In plants, they repel predators. And in mammals, they can stimulate the synthesis of muscle protein. Several ways have been suggested for this effect.
First, turkesterone can increase the efficiency of muscle protein synthesis by increasing it by more than 100% in vitro (և by increasing rat grip strength in vivo).
Second, turkesterone can increase the amount of leucine in that cell. Leucine is probably the most anabolic amino acid around.
Third, turkesterone և other exdosteroids may be associated with the beta-type of estrogen receptors, which is associated with bone and muscle growth, in contrast to the more classic “feminizing” effects seen with other types of estrogen receptors.
Do Turkesterone supplements work?
It’s hard to say: There is very little human research on turkesterone supplements, but there are some impressive animal studies on turkesterone-related exosteroids. Let’s look.
- In one, rats that received exdosteroids were stronger, longer swimmers than rats that received placebo, despite differences in exercise / swimming volume.
- The sheep who took the supplement gained weight faster and produced more wool. This implies that it not only promotes the growth of raw mass, but also improves it function: organism (wool production). Moreover, in sheep who did not get enough food, turkesterone had a stronger effect.
- An old Russian study showed that giving rats testosterone stimulated the synthesis of muscle protein in the liver as much as anabolic steroids.
- Turkesterone also improves the flexibility of “immobility stress” mice by restricting the free movement of laboratory mice. This is basically the safest way to trigger a stress response in mice. In normal mice, the stress of immobility leads to an increase in the adrenal glands, a decrease in their immune function, a decrease in cholesterol, vitamin C levels, and degeneration of the intestinal mucosa. In mice with turcosterone doses, these changes do not occur as quickly (or at all).
What can we learn from animal studies now in the absence of human studies?
Animal studies are the beginning of human research. As mammals, we all share similar paths muscle building, growth և loss. Of course, there are differences, but there are also well-preserved similarities and redundancies.
There are also a number of anecdotal reports from Turkestero users on online messaging boards and social media. You can not base your public health policy or write research based on anonymous Reddit reports, but you can read for yourself to judge whether they are trustworthy. Then you can choose whether to try the add-on or not.
And if you look back at the old Russian research, they reported some incredible results. Unfortunately, I can not check them. All of them are not available as complete studies or even abstracts; even if they were available, they would be in Russian. The only thing I saw was an unverified list of results. However, here they are.
- Against anxiety
- Improved wound healing
- Lowering blood glucose
- Reduced inflammation
- Adaptogenic effect
In other words, these compounds are supposed to do all the “good things” you’re looking for in the app. That’s fine, but I’m not sure.
Is Turkesterone natural?
Turkesterone is a natural exosteroid, which is most abundant in plants Ajuga Turkestanica. Commercial Turkosterone supplements all come from this plant. These are plant extracts և as “natural” as any other plant extract you can take.
Does Turkesterone have any side effects?
Common (but not guaranteed) side effects include upset stomach, nausea և diarrhea, usually in higher doses than recommended.
Fortunately, Turkesterone seems extremely safe, non-toxic even beyond the usual doses used by users. Most studies show that the benefits start at about 10 mg per kilogram of body weight, while oral toxicity is only 9000 mg per kilogram of body weight.. There is no danger of using anything close to 9000 mg, let alone 9000 mg for every kilogram of your body weight.
In general, if you can afford Turkesterone, you are interested in gaining lean mass (or any other potential advantage), և you are already training hard և you are eating well և sleep a lot Doing all the other things you need to do, I would try for a month. Try to follow everything else – diet, exercise, sleep, stress– so you can turn off any add-on effects.
But if you hardly train, stay up late and eat poorly, do not think that Turkesterone will give you any results. Only try if you are already doing everything right.
I would bet that turkesterone could also be helpful in maintaining or even gaining muscle while losing weight if research on the anabolism of low-calorie animals continues.
It seems promising to me. The main downside is that it’s not cheap, it’s hard to find high quality turquoise that you can trust. These products seem to be the best there. Gorilla thought, True nutrition,
Anyone have any personal experience with Turkesterone? I would love to hear how it worked or not for you.
