Bulasterone is a quite exceptional muscle-building supplement that has just recently been introduced to the bodybuilding community. Bulasterone contains an ingredient formulation designed to target several pathways known to support anabolic and anti-catabolic activity associated with the development of enhanced muscle and strength. The Bulasterone formulation begins with Bulbine natalensis extract, which is joined by numerous, highly potent anabolic and anti-catabolic muscle-building compounds.
An aqueous extract of Bulbine natalensis, which has gained recent acclaim for its testosterone-boosting properties, is the cornerstone ingredient in Bulasterone. Bulbine natalensis is an herb, indigenous to South Africa, which has been studied recently for its ability to help enhance sex drive, support elevated testosterone levels, and to help control excess estrogen.
Researchers have also concluded that Bulbine natalensis extract increases gonadotropin-releasing-hormone-luteinizing hormone (GnRH-LH) signaling. GnRH is released from the hypothalamus in the brain. GnRH stimulates the release of luteinizing hormone (LH) from the pituitary. LH is the hormone that directly stimulates cells in the testes to produce and release testosterone. Bulbine natalensis extract has also been shown to stimulate LH by 169%, as compared to placebo!
Researchers have additionally determined that Bulbine natalensis extract also increases cholesterol in the testes. Cholesterol is the equivalent of raw material in the testes needed to create testosterone. Cholesterol is taken up into the mitochondria of the testes where it is processed into pregnenolone, which can then be converted into various sex hormone. Due to cholesterol's status as a raw material, its uptake into the testes is often the rate-limiting step in sex hormome synthesis. Thus, enhanced GnRH-LH signaling and cholesterol formation in the testes are two important properties that support enhanced testosterone synthesis.
As previously stated, Bulbine natalensis extract has also demonstrated an ability to produce a significant decrease in excess estrogen levels by as much as 35%, as compared to placebo. A reduction in excess estrogen helps to create a favorable environment that supports increased total and free testosterone levels.
The proprietary Bulbine natalensis extract in Bulasterone is called Test-Rx, which is standardized to 40%+ saponins, 2.5% sterolins, 1.5% tannins, 0.5% fatty acids, 10% phytosterols and anthraquinones. It has long been known that saponins enhance androgen (such as testosterone) production.
Bulasterone contains a 98% Rhaponticum carthamoides extract (RCE) standardized to 40% turkesterone. This potent extract, with its unique high concentration of 40% turkesterone, is imported exclusively by Hi-Tech rom Russia for the production of Bulasterone. Turkesterone is possibly the strongest known, which is a protein synthesis compound, and is considered by many to be an underground bodybuilding supplement. In the past, turkesterone has remained a closely guarded secret for those who know how to use it successfully. Turkesterone can be used in conjunction with testosterone-boosting supplements for additive anabolic effects.
Obtaining a high quality turkesterone raw material, however, can be problematic. Turkesterone is primarily only found in the Far East and harvested in China and Russia. The Russian variant is, by far, the favored extracted from the Rhaponticum carthamoides plant due to significantly more potency. While there are many products on the market that are purported to contain various compounds extracted from Rhaponticum carthamoides, including turkesterone, most all, much weaker, raw material comes from China and thus the quality, potency, and real-world anabolic benefits of these products is questionable. Hi-Tech, on the other hand, uses only the highest-grade, most expensive, Russian material available. The active Rhaponticum carthamoides complex is referred to as "levseins" in Soviet research. This levseins complex holds a very unique and precise ratio of 10 specific ecdysterones, including a high percentage of turkesterone, and also 20-hydroxyecdysterone, cyasterone, ponasterone A, and others, many of which are also included with turkesterone in the Rhaponticum extract in Bulasterone.
