Maral root (Stemmacantha carthamoides) is a perennial herb grown in the mountains of southern Siberia. Native hunters first discovered Maral root by noticing Maral deer renewing their strength after eating the roots. Hence the name Maral. In Siberian medicine, it is used to restore power after any illness or ailment as well as prevent overtraining. Also, it is used to enhance physical and sexual energy.
Russian athletes were the first to use Maral root as an ergogenic aid to assist in handling the physical and psychological stress of intense training.
Maral contains a variety of beneficial compounds. Ecdysteroids such as 20-hydroxyecdysone are believed to have anabolic properties. Also, it provides various sterols such as b-sitosterol, flavonoids, anthocyanins, and triterpenoid glycosides. The above compounds stimulate and support the immune system, increase protein synthesis, eliminate free radical damage, support cognitive function and improve work capacity.
Why do athletes use Maral Root
Most athletes would benefit from Maral roots anabolic growth-promoting effects. Maral root will enhance performance during aerobic endurance exercises and prolonged intermittent, high-intensity sports.
What are Ecdysteroids
Ecdysteroids are the primary active components responsible for promoting growth and increasing fat-free mass.
Research on Ecdysteroids:
Animal studies have shown an increase in work capacity in mice running on treadmills and in swimming endurance protocols (Azizov & Seifulla, 1998) Scientists note that in these animal studies significant differences are small, and small sample sizes limit the quality of results. (Kokoska & Janovska, 2009). In 1995 scientists found that ecdysteroid supplementation with track and field athletes improved body composition after 20 days (Gadzhieva et al., 1995). Similar effects on work capacity were found in a study done on Russian athletes in 1997 (Azizov et al., 1997). In addition to improving work capacity, the immunosuppressive effects of training were blunted as lowered levels of immunoglobulin A, and G (IgA and IgG) were restored. A reduction in free radicals was observed.
