ANDROSTENE 50®: Androstenedione, a steroid hormone found in all animals, is a metabolite of DHEA that serves as a direct precursor in the biosynthesis of testosterone. In all mammals androstenedione is produced in the gondads and adrenal glands. This oral form of androstenedione is metabolized in the liver to testosterone in conjuction with a zinc-dependent enzyme.
What is it Supposed to Do? Androstenedione, when taken orally, will increase blood levels of Testosterone. Secondary to this increase, effects are often seen such as increased energy, enhanced recovery, mental alertness, muscle growth, heightened sexual arousal and performance, as well as a greater sense of well being.How Great is the Increase? According to the German Patent for Androstenedione, 50 mg. given orally to men raised plasma levels from 140% to 183% of normal, and 100 mg. of oral Androstenedione raised levels from 211% to 337% of normal.
How Long Do These Increases Last? Blood levels start rising about 15 minutes after oral administration of Androstenedione and stay elevated for around 3 hours. A peak in blood Testosterone levels is seen around 1 to 1.5 hours after ingestion.
Is ANDROSTENE legal? Androstenedione is perfectly legal for sale as a nutritional supplement. It is found naturally in meats as well as in some plants. Like DHEA and Pregneneolone, it is the key intermediate in the bio-synthesis of other biologically active steroid hormones.
Will Androstenedione Decrease My Natural Production of Testosterone? If Androstenedione is taken as directed, once a day prior to physical activity, the positive benefits can be had without any significant negative feedback response to your natural testosterone production. This is because the results lastonly a few hours and that is not enough time for the pituitary gland to respond.
