That being said, it has been shown to induce signal transduction and possibly act on the same receptors that testosterone does, thus exerting testosterone like effects in the body independent of testosterone levels. Which is plausible given the structural similarity of ecdysterone and testosterone (although ecdysterone’s small structural changes do result in large changes in its actions in the body; its wholly plausible that the opposite notion of no interaction is true as well). That, and it does increase protein synthesis directly .[x]
