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 Pharmaceuticals rom Russia for the production of Bulasterone. Turkesterone is possibly the strongest ecdysteroid 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 Pharmaceuticals, 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.
