Rhaponticum Carthamoides Extract Instruction
◆ Rhaponticum carthamoides (Russian Leuzea or Maral Root) is an herb used in traditional Siberian and Russian medicine to bolster physical performance particularly after illness, in addition to being used as a general physical enhancement and male sexual enhancement aid. It is a source of molecules known as ecdysteroids which are hormones involved in the molting and maturation process in insects but have different actions when ingested by non-insect organisms.
◆ Despite being an 'insect steroid' of sorts, ecdysteroids have not been found to interact with estrogen or androgen receptors nor influence levels of these hormones in the body.
