What is Muscle Empire's Beta-Ecdysterone?
Beta-Ecdysterone, also called 20-hydroxyecdysone, is the active principle in several plants, including Rhaponticum carthamoides, or Maral root, Suma, Cyanotis vaga, and Cyanotis arachnoidea, which is also referred to as hydroxyecdysone. Muscle Empire’s Beta-Ecdysterone is extracted from Cyanotis Arachnoidea, a plant native to China, rich in phytoecdysteroids which are considered the potential catalyst for muscle protein synthesis. Found in a variety of other plants and insects, Beta-Ecdysterone is similar in structure to a compound found in humans associated with muscle growth, strength, and recovery; due to this, Beta-Ecdysterone may have anabolic-like effects. Researchers believe it to have protein stimulating effects promoting increased muscle protein synthesis, lean body tissue, and strength. One such study states that the continuous infusion of 20-hydroxyecdysone showed an increase in muscle mass. Other studies show that “ecdysterone has been demonstrated to increase protein synthesis in skeletal muscle” (Syrov, 2000).
Beta-Ecdysterone Benefits & Uses include:

- Supports Improved Athletic Performance †
- Promotes Healthy Cholesterol †
How Does Beta-Ecdysterone Work?
Beta-Ecdysterone is taken by many as a way to increase lean muscle mass and as a way to improve workouts. The combination of resistance training and the consumption of Beta-Ecdysterone is believed to enhance lean body mass. The intended purpose of Beta-Ecdysterone is to encourage both cellular and muscular recovery, and when combined with animal-based proteins such as fish, eggs, chicken, etc., could potentially yield better results. In addition to its potential benefits relating to muscle protein synthesis, it may also possess traits that protect neural tissue. Through the use of isoflavones, Beta-Ecdysterone may improve healthy cholesterol levels. In addition, the androgenic behaviors of Beta-Ecdysterone are one of the many reasons that bodybuilders supplement with it, as it does not possess any of the effects of androgens.

I have been taking for about a month and have already noticed a difference. I have not changed my eating, but have lost a few pounds of fat without losing muscle. In fact, my chest and shoulders have seemed to grow a little. Being 46, the best part of taking this is the recovery. I am able to go harder than usual each workout and still recover by the next session.
7 days in, I am 31 yrs old, been training bodybuilding and cycling for 3 yrs straight now on a low card high protien paleo diet. I have never taken any steroid before. After alot of research i was doing a year ago I had found that 20-hydroxyecdreserone was a phytosterol found in alot of insects to help molt or shed exoskeleton. Could not find a legit supplier until now. Highly reccomend these and i will write another review in 8 weeks. I figure anything that seems to work this good or makes you feel this way has consequences when stopping but I may be wrong.
