What is Turkesterone?
Turkesterone is a plant-based steroid that can be extracted from Ajuga turkestanica. Ecdysteroid hormones look like Androgen hormones (the group of sex hormones that give men their ‘male’ characteristics) and are therefore popular with athletes as a replacement for steroids, or as a meal additive meant for enhanced performance and muscle growth. Its chemical structure is quite similar to human testosterone which we all know and love. Plus, it doesn’t seem to have any side effects like steroids. For this reason, Turkesterone has piqued the interest of many athletes.

After reading this you might think that you found the perfect supplement for your workout journey. These benefits are from what users are saying they experience. Unfortunately, Turkesterone is quite new to the scene and research needs to be done in order to support or dismiss these claims for certain.
One thing is for sure, though. Many people are pleased with the results they are seeing, and Turkesterone has a strong potential once it becomes well-researched.
What is Tongkat Ali?
Also known as Longjack this ingredient is well-known for its aphrodisiac and pro-fertility effects. It also has anti-estrogenic effects in vitro which can point us to the conclusion it might help boost testosterone as a by-product.
Turkesterone and Tongkat Ali together
This might be a controversial topic, but from what we are seeing in people trying the Turkesterone+Tongkat Ali stack they seem to love it and report that they are having great results. Others will say it’s a placebo, but we’ve seen people that have taken both Turkesterone and Tingkat Ali solo state that they feel the effects of both the ingredients, just at an elevated state.
As Turkesterone is such a newcomer to the bodybuilding scene the information is scarce, and we need to wait for scientists to start researching it so we can be certain if it will work or not. This might not be in the near future, though, as Turketerone research will cost a lot of money.
When it comes to combining Turkesterone and Tongkat Ali you should experiment yourself to see if it will work for you, and if you do so we encourage you to share your results with the rest of the community so we can be a step closer to figuring out this plant.
All in all, we are really excited to see how Turkesterone is going to be doing in the future and if it will become one of the staples in bodybuilding. This supplement has great potential and vast supposed benefits which could help it with that, if proven effective.
