Ecdysone is a steroid hormone of the ecdysteroids family which is found in animals (vertebrates and invertebrates) and in plants. There exist different polyhydroxylated forms of ecdysone, the major one being the 20-Hydroxyecdysone. 20-Hydroxyecdysone is known as the insect molting hormone. Indeed, in interaction with the juvenile hormone, 20-hydroxyecdysone plays a key role in growth, development, metamorphosis, and reproduction of the Arthropods (i.e., invertebrates such as insects, crustaceans, arachnids, etc.). Little is known about the function of ecdysteroids in the vertebrates. There are several reports which indicate an effect of the phycoecdysteroid 20-hydroxyecdysone on muscle growth and fat loss in mammals. Some dietary supplements are marketed to enhance physical performances of athletes, and particularly of bodybuilders. Besides, researchers are currently studying the effect of 20-hydroxyecdysone in the treatment of obesity and diabetes. And there are on-going investigations on the possible interest of 20-hydroxyecdysone in the prevention and the treatment of diseases such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.
