Darkside’s Dark Mass comes with 200mg of reishi mushroom extract, 150mg of tribulus, 250mg of fenugreek, and 600mg each of HMB and the increasingly popular turkesterone.
Turkesterone is the next big thing to hit the Australian supplement market after receiving a huge amount of attention online, especially in the United States. Turkesterone is what is known as an ecdysteroid which are found naturally in plants and insects and play an important structural and functional role for both. Studies on Turkesterone are slowly being carried out and there are already some promising results which suggest that it may have positive effects for strength, muscle growth, muscle protein synthesis and even fat loss. With all of these great effects, Turkesterone is a no brainer for anyone trying to maximise their body composition.
Ajuga Turkestanica Extract is an ecdysteroid which are hormones that are found in plants, insects and arthropods. In insects they help drive key processes involved in survival and in plants they assist with structure building and keeping predators away. Ecdysteroids are now being researched heavily with their potential to assist with muscle growth and effects on metabolism. Do not settle for an inferior type of Turkesterone!!
Hydroxypropyl-Beta-Cyclodextrin Complex is an important part of this product to consider as this will essentially help pull more nutrients (The Turk) through the stomach lining more effeciently.
How Does Turkesterone Work?
Turkesterone is still fairly new so there is a limited research on this ingredient but with that said, some studies have been conducted. To the amazement of the researchers, Turkesterone outperformed all of the synthetic anabolic compounds when it comes to producing anabolic effects. It is important to remember that this data cannot be directly extrapolated to humans however the results are certainly very promising considering this is a plant compound! One study that was on humans found Turkesterone supplementation to be equivalent to 2.5-5mg of anavar (which is another anabolic compound) and at this stage, experts believe that these results can be achieved whilst being devoid of side effects that are normally associated with anabolic agents. This is encouraging for people looking to optimise their results without the host of side effects. These results are very promising and as Turkesterone grows in exposure and popularity, there is no doubting that more and more studies will become available.
