I came across this study a while back after a member on another forum posted the link.
Seized designer supplement named "1-Androsterone":... [Steroids. 2011] - PubMed result
I decided to post it here for those at AM to see. Now, this study is a tad bittersweet for AMS in that its main purpose was for the steroid detection in athletes. The positive spin is that it provides unbiased proof of 2 very important things:
- The product does indeed contain the exact compound listed on the label: 1-Androstene-3b-ol,17-one, in the correct dosages
- The product does convert in significant quantities to the target hormone 1-testosterone
This should ease any possible concerns regarding the AMS 1-andro product, as some did question its purity at one point (which IMO was unfounded).
This should also put to rest the concern that the conversion is a "two step" conversion resulting in a low amount of 1-testosterone as an end result. To the contrary, it appears that 1-testosterone is the main metabolite of this product...which is what we want.
Those who have used the product know of its efficacy. I'm hoping that this will help those who are looking for a safe/effective PH, but are on the fence about 1-andro, to give it a try.
