Many would believe that such a powerful plant compound may have side effects when taken by humans. But so far there are no known side effects from taking the Turkesterone extract. As more and more researchers investigate Turkesterone in humans some side effects may become more apparent. But as of now there is only one reported side effect from Turkesterone. Please note that this side effect is completely anecdotal and is just reported from people that have researched with Turkesterone.
The one side effect or turkesterone powder that is reported by only a handful of researchers is nausea and general stomach irritation. Some user report that at higher dosages of 2,000mg and higher, they experience general stomach discomfort.
Many of these researchers only experience stomach discomfort and nausea at the higher dosages previously mentioned. But most of them who stay under the 2,000mg per day dosage do not experience this Turkesterone side effect.
Alongside the muscle-building effects of Turkesterone, it also induces multiple beneficial side-effects. Turkesterone can help optimise hormonal levels and strengthen your immune system, which is essential for any active individual. Ecysteriods are also promoted as being healthy for the liver and intestines, as well as being able to lower cholesterol and regulate blood glucose. There is research to suggest that Turkesterone also has protective effects on brain health, through enhancing neurotransmitter activity. However, it is important to avoid taking Turkesterone on an empty stomach as it can cause nausea, which is a common side effect of capsulated supplements.
Turkesterone is a phytoecdysteroid possessing an 11α-hydroxyl group. It is an analogue of the insect steroid hormone 20-hydroxyecdysone. Previous ecdysteroid QSAR and molecular modelling studies predicted that the cavity of the ligand binding domain of the ecdysteroid receptor would possess space in the vicinity of C-11/C-12 of the ecdysteroid. We report the regioselective synthesis of a series of turkesterone 11α-acyl derivatives in order to explore this possibility. The structures of the analogues have been unambiguously determined by spectroscopic means (NMR and low-resolution mass spectrometry). Purity was verified by HPLC. Biological activities have been determined in Drosophila melanogaster BII cell-based bioassay for ecdysteroid agonists and in an in vitro radioligand-displacement assay using bacterially-expressed D. melanogaster EcR/USP receptor proteins.
Ecdysteroids are chemicals found in insects, certain water animals, and some plants. People use it for medicine.
Ecdysteroids are most commonly used for increasing muscle mass and improve athletic performance, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
The active ingredient beta-ecdysterone is not only found in spinach but also in other foods. Besides spinach, asparagus, mushrooms and quinoa contain the active ingredient. A particularly high proportion of pure beta-ecdysterone is contained in the root extract of Cyanotis.
