It has been demonstrated that ecdysterone has a similar role to testosterone in men. It is believed that ecdysterone accounts for “superhuman” strength of insects which are able to carry things many times heavier than their body weight. Apart from insects, this plant has been found in numerous plants, including Cyanotis Vega. In this case, ecdysterone functions as an insect repellent.
In terms of chemical structure, beta-ecdysterone is a plant steroid which may help build lean muscle mass in humans. Furthermore, it is involved in processes that improve the body’s efficiency and sustains nitrogen balance. Despite of its great resemblance to testosterone, ecdysterone does not affect the male reproductive system. Owing to that, it has similar actions to androgens but it does not cause side effects.
