From my understanding there are 3 ecdysteroids.
3. Ecdysterone (more commonly known as just ecdy)
In terms of bodybuilding aspects, I bleieve Ponasterone is the best, followed by Turkesterone, and then Ecdy.
So I have a few questions
1. Who here has used either Turkesterone and/or Ponasterone?
2. What dosages were used and what were your results?
3. Where the feck did you get it? (I know Ron had some raw material for Turk)

Ponasterone is not so much better than ecdysterone, but yes it is little bit better.
Everyone who have tried turkesterone, have not tried REAL turkesterone. Russian turkesterone is expencive and it is hard to find on marked.

Help me out here: Are you talking the same chemical from different sources or different chemicals altogether? I'm not a chemist and
think 20-hydroxyecdysone is the same chemical no matter where it is sourced. Am I misunderstanding this? Do ecdysteroids vary in chemical structure. Based on this thread it seems that it does, which explains my confusion. Thanks.
Plants currently used to obtain the ecdysteroids used for various preparations
Ajuga turkestanica Labiatae
Cyanotis vaga Commelinaceae
Cyathula capitata Amaranthaceae
Leuzea (= Rhaponticum) carthamoides Asteraceae
Pfaffia iresinoides Amaranthaceae
Pfaffia paniculata Amaranthaceae
Pfaffia stenophylla Amaranthaceae
Polypodium aureum Ferns
Polypodium lepidopteris Ferns
Polypodium vulgare FernsThat which does not kill you makes you stronger.

1)There are 100s of ecdysteroids. There are studies on only 10s of them and from their molecular structure I can guess about 20 or so have potent anabolic activity.
2)There are ecdysteroids more potent than Turkesterone
3)Good Turkesterone is a real bitch to source
Oh and Ponasterone is far inferior to Turkesterone.
