    its compleate rubbish all test have been done on rats and not on humans because the dosage humans need to even see the littlest effect is about 800-900mg every day for about a month and the dosage they give you in the bottle is the same dosage they gave the rats in there test.
    you might as well get dianabol it will cost you about 1/4 of the price and it does exactally what is says on the label.

    Why waste your money on otc drugs when the real stuff works so much better the only thing the otc drugs mimic is the side effects of the gear and they don give you half the benifits

    where did you see that study of 800mg or 900mg of ecdysterone? I thought research was done on athletes using 200 mb of ecdysterone a day.

    I try the EAS stuff the first month I gained 6lbs of muscle and lost 5lbs of fat. Thought I was on to somthing good, but that was it, waste of money after that. I think it was the diet change that give me the results.

    pub med abstract

    Institute of Entomology, Czech Academy of Sciences, Praha, Czech Republic.

    Ecdysteroids are hormones controlling cell proliferation, growth and the developmental cycles of insects and other invertebrates. They are occasionally present in various unrelated plants for no apparent reason; no phytohormonal function has yet been identified. In certain cases, ecdysteroids are accumulated to high levels in leaves, roots or seeds. Some ecdysteroid-containing plants have been known as medicinal plants for centuries. One of them, Leuzea carthamoides Iljin (Asteraceae), growing in Central Asia, contains 0.4% ecdysteroid in dry roots and 2% in seeds. A pharmacological preparation from this plant, "Ecdisten', is already available as a commercial preparation for its anabolic , tonic and other effects, for medical use (review). It remained problematic, however, whether ecdysteroids were truly responsible for these effects, because Leuzea contains a number of other biologically active compounds in addition to ecdysteroids. We extracted and purified ecdysteroids from the seeds of Leuzea. With 6 g of 96% 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E), we made a large-scale feeding assay with Japanese quail to find out whether ecdysteroid alone could duplicate the anabolic effects of the seeds. We found that the 96% ecdysteroid increased the mass of the developing quails in a dose-dependent manner, with the rate of increase proportional to the ecdysteroid content in the seeds; there was a 115% increase in living mass with 100 mg kg-1 of pure 20E compared with 109.5% increase with 100-180 mg kg-1 20E equivalents in the seeds. We conclude that the plethora of growth-promoting, vitamin-like effects induced in vertebrates by Leuzea is mediated by ecdysteroids.

    PMID: 8698114 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]

    ecdysone and such are insect molting hormones. Many plants produce them as a natural defense against insects. When an insect eats such a plant, the ecdysone interferes with normal molting patterns, which can kill or render the insect helpless while it waits for its exoskeleton to harden again. just so you know...
