The Effects of Ecdysterone on Myostasis
Since its advent in 1976, ecdysone has developed irregular tablets, injections, and plasters. People are used to treating rheumatoid arthritis.
Beta-ecdysterone, a natural steroid, belongs to phytosterols and is commonly found in herbs (dew weeds), insects (silkworms) and some aquatic animals (shrimps, crabs, etc.). It has been found that dew grass is one of the medicinal plants which contain more ecdysterone in nature up to now. Ecdysterone, as a cosmetic raw material, is a highly concentrated active substance obtained by special treatment. Its chemical composition is single, and it is favored by major cosmetic manufacturers.
The action of beta-ecdysterone on the human body can promote gluten protein synthesis, anti-arrhythmia, and anti-fatigue; promote cell growth, stimulate dermal cell division, eliminate cholesterol in vivo; reduce blood lipid, inhibit blood sugar rise; activate channels and collaterals, dehumidify and analgesia, and other physiological activities. It is a natural anticancer agent.
Cautions for ecdysterone: This product should be kept at a low temperature and exposed to air for a long time, the content will be reduced. It has the functions of lowering blood sugar and cholesterol, anti-arrhythmia, anti-virus, anti-inflammation, anti-oxidation, and immune promotion. It is reported that this product can stimulate the growth of breast cancer in mice and rats. This product can also be used in sericulture, can promote the maturity of silkworms neat, automatic clustering. It can also play a role in the control of agricultural pests and the reproduction of beneficial pests.
Storage of beta-ecdysterone: Stored in a sealed container with light-proof, refrigerated or frozen for a long time. The sample solution is newly prepared. If it needs to be prepared in advance, it can be separated into separate packages for freezing and thawed before use. It can usually be stored for 2 weeks.
Beta-ecdysterone is a natural steroid compound with ecdysis activity in insects. It is an active component of Achyranthes bidentata et al. and has many pharmacological activities. Ecdysterone can promote the synthesis of nucleic acid and protein, protect vascular endothelial cells and antioxidant effect, and protect experimental models such as myocardial ischemia, brain impact injury and pulmonary edema. Beta-ecdysterone can effectively inhibit the apoptosis of endothelial cells induced by hypoxia, increase NO-2/NO-3, which is the metabolite of NO in brain tissue. It can dilate blood vessels, accelerate blood flow, increase local cerebral blood flow and improve microcirculation, so as to promote the absorption and dissipation of exudates, alleviate brain edema and reduce the volume of cerebral infarction.
