Beta Ecdysterone Performance Supplement

Beta Ecdysterone Performance Supplement, derived from Rhaponticum carthamoides, also known as Maral Root or Leuzea—is distinguished by its rich historical and scientific background. Originating from the Lake Baikal region and Eastern Siberia, this plant has been utilized for over 25 years in Russian sports and medicine to enhance physical performance and recovery. Recognized officially in the Russian Pharmacopoeia, Rhaponticum carthamoides extract has been a staple in popular Russian beverages and a secret weapon for elite athletes who attribute their increased muscle growth to its use.

The journey of Beta Ecdysterone Performance Supplement into the US market began with its underground distribution until 2001 when it was formally introduced by Fitness Enterprise through a collaboration between Emeric Delczeg and Dr. Zakir Ramazanov. Marketed as EcdyGrowth, this blend of Ecdysterone and Humanofort revolutionized the dietary supplement industry by offering a natural yet powerful alternative to synthetic anabolic steroids. The blend’s efficacy is largely attributed to its “levseins,” a complex of over ten ecdysterones including the potent 20-beta-ecdysterone. This unique mix not only enhances muscle protein synthesis via the activation of polyribosomes—cellular structures crucial for protein production—but also supports muscle tissue development in a dose-dependent manner, proving superior to synthetic alternatives like Dianabol in direct comparisons.

Clinical studies underline that the total extract, rather than isolated components, drives the superior anabolic effects observed. This complete spectrum approach ensures that users benefit from a holistic influence on muscle protein synthesis, thereby enhancing endurance, muscle growth, and overall athletic performance. Research has consistently shown that a dosage of 0.5 mg/kg body weight of 20-beta-ecdysterone is optimal, highlighting the precision required in formulating such supplements.

In terms of safety, Leuzea extract exhibits an excellent safety profile, tolerating high doses without significant adverse effects, a stark contrast to the potential dangers of synthetic steroids. This aspect is crucial for athletes seeking sustainable and safe enhancement options. The supplement’s standardization is rigorous, based on extensive phytochemical research and clinical trials, ensuring that each batch offers consistent quality and efficacy.

EcdyGrowth is not just a performance enhancer but also a health-promoting supplement. It includes Humanofort, a component rich in natural fibroblast growth factors which aid in cellular repair and amino acid uptake, significantly enhancing gastrointestinal hormone interactions. This multifaceted supplement stands out in a market often dominated by less effective and poorly researched alternatives, offering a scientifically backed, tested, and proven option for those aiming to naturally and safely improve their athletic performance and recovery.

EcdyGrowth Highlights & Insights

Leuzea Rhaponticum Carthamoides: Improves translation to boost protein synthesis, ATP, and carb storage in muscle, liver, and heart tissue and boosts red-blood-cell count while scavenging free radicals.

Humanofort: Contains all the natural FGF (fibroblast growth factors).

Research credits FGF with essentially reprogramming adult stem cells and amino acids in the body (which make up its natural repair tools). Humanofort interacts with the process of digestion and provides an assistive stimulus to the Gastrointestinal Hormones Gastrin, Cholecystokinin, Secretin, Ghrelin, Motilin in such a fashion that through process molecular biology they stimulate the rate of uptake of all amino acids by a calculated margin of 18% for its half-life of four minutes by standards and deviations. These may be clinically tested by means of blood sampling.


Why EcdyGrowth? Most all other ecdysterone supplements contain only simple powders from China, made from totally different plants (Cyanotis Vaga, for instance) or synthetic ecdysterone “isolates”. In comparison, these types of ecdy are cheap, unrefined, and generally ineffectual. Worst of all, quite a number of these products falsely (mis)apply the positive studies conducted specifically on Leuzea Rhaponticum Carthamoides.

“Only Rhaponticum has undergone complete human clinical trials and study. Research pointed out the superior anabolic effect of Rhaponticum Carthamoides Extract rather than single 20-beta-ecdysterone, which is abundant in plants outside the Rhaponticum genus. Use of 20-beta-ecdysterone content, as an indication of the superiority of one isolate over another, is just the simple old attempt to substitute original Rhaponticum Carthamoides Extract with inferior plant extract.”

  • “Research indicates that the whole extract of Leuzea Rhaponticum Carthamoides containing all levseins (representing a complex of 10 ecdysterones) exerts a much superior physiological activity compared with individual constituents.” (Seifulla 1999)
  • Leuzea Extract considerably increases the working capacity of tired skeletal muscles and increases their content of glycogen, ATP, and Creatine Phosphate (Petrov et al. 1984).
  • “The working capacity of athletes grew by 10 to 15% in the Seifulla trial of 1993.”
  • “In back-to-back studies with animals, the Leuzea Rhaponticum extract was superior to synthetic anabolics like Dianabol at inducing endurance and muscle cell growth.” (Syrov et al. 1976, 1992)

Dr. Syrov has repeatedly demonstrated in clinical trials (Syrov et al. 1976, 1992) superior increases in, specifically, endurance and protein synthesis versus ‘D-Bol’ (Dianabol). His studies and others further illustrate a total lack of associated negative side-effects and a host of health-promoting benefits.
