Believed to carry bio-active compounds that resemble androgens in structure, Ajuga turkestanica could potentially impart such post-workout benefits as:
- Increasing muscle mass. Ajuga turkestanica has been shown to increase muscle protein synthesis in animals.
- Improving muscle recovery. The herb may increase the muscle-regenerating activity of satellite cells.
