so.....Will AN ship to me in Australia? I'll run the risk. It seems worth it. I been training so long, this will put the icing on the cake for me. Customs cant open EVERYTHING. Hopefully I can get it through, with a wee bit of luck. Will only need the 1 bottle if you get a good month out of it, cause I am only after a few kilo. Gotta get it, gotta get it......
yes we had 2 in the AN crew plus some others. None reported excessive hair loss and a some were prone to MPB

I am posting the write-up in this thread.
Guys, questions are welcome, but please read these two threads FIRST (as chances are, the answer is in there)!:
The ONE: Part I - Introduction
OK, without further ado....
The ONE by
Estrogenic Activity: none
Progestational Activity: none
Derivation/Analog of: Dihydrotestosterone
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) was first synthesized in 1935.
Primary active ingredient (17a-methyl-etioallocholan-17b-ol-3-hydroxyimine) was first described by Z. Cekan and B. Pelc, Effects of 1-alkyl substitution on the biological action in a series of androstanes. Steroids 8,209 (1966).
Never commercially produced A COMPLETELY NOVEL MOLECULE.
The One is an oral prohormone of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a compound that produces effects 3 to 5 times more potent than testosterone on the androgen receptor.
The One can inhibit the action of estrogens by acting as a competitive antagonist and/or decreasing the mRNA-induced transcription of estrogenic effects post-binding.
The One can also act like an aromatase inhibitor, disallowing the conversion of androgens to estrogen.
The One activates GLUT-4 receptors in skeletal muscle, increasing glycogen uptake of 17-alpha alkylated molecules for greater oral bioavailability.
The One can significantly lower SHBG levels, allowing for more active product to reach skeletal muscle.
Effects Related to Physique Enhancement:
Rapid lean body mass gains - typical users report 0.75 lb./day gains for first 2-3 weeks
Overall hardening effect to physique
Dramatically enhanced neural function (coordination) as DHT is the predominant androgen in neural function
Lipolytic effect (increases fat metabolism)
Effective dose: 67.5 - 90 mg/day (3-4 capsules) ; DO NOT EXCEED 90 MG/DAY
Can be taken with or without food; preferably in the AM
Oral Administration Only
4-5 week administration period; do not exceed 5 weeks duration

The ONE: Part IV - Technical Write-Up
Mechanism of Action/Function:
User ingests compound orally
Digestion occurs in roughly 20-30 minutes (as with most encapsulated products)
Compound is absorbed by the duodenum and jejunum of the small intestine, and then is displaced into the hepatic portal vein, (a special blood vessel leading from the digestive tract to the liver) where the compound must undergo the first pass through the liver and survive hepatic metabolism.
Methylation allows the compound to survive the first pass through the liver, protecting the molecule from hepatic enzymatic degradation.
After first pass, the compound is distributed into the inferior vena cava, and then to the heart for systemic distribution.
The heart pumps the active compound into all different areas of the body during the distribution phase. As is the case with most compounds, SHBG (steroid hormone binding globulin) can remove active compounds from systemic distribution before they reach their target organ (in this case, skeletal muscle).
Binding proteins such as SHBG are rendered fairly inactive in this situation with the active ingredient in The One, because it is one of only a few compounds that does not carry an actual 3-keto group; it carries a 3-oxime group instead.
Research has dictated that oximes have little or no binding affinity to SHBG in the blood stream, allowing for more free active substrate to reach their target (the androgen receptor (AR) in skeletal muscle). In essence, the 3-oxime protects the molecule from being bound (see graph below) leaving more active substrate in the blood to target skeletal muscle.
Once The One reaches skeletal muscle, it must interact with specific target androgen receptors to exert the desired effect of increased protein synthesis and increased nitrogen retention.
Under normal circumstances, DHT is quickly deactivated in the blood by 3a-HSD into 5alpha-androstan-3a,17b-diol, a weak androgen, and its access to target skeletal muscle tissue is restricted.
There is some evidence that the 3-oxime substituted for 3-keto group may slow this deactivation, allowing for greater binding of the molecule to the AR.
Oximes are a group of compounds with the general formula RนRฒCNOH, where R1 constitutes an organic side chain, and R2 is another organic group. This forms a ketoxime.
Oximes exist as two geometric stereoisomers: a syn-isomer and an anti-isomer.
Oximes are formed by the action of hydroxylamine on ketones.
Because the evidence suggests that active DHT may not be metabolized by 3a-HSD into the weaker 5-alpha-androstan-3a,17b-diol within the skeletal muscle because of the oxime, there is a very good chance that fairly large amounts of DHT will actually bind to the AR in skeletal muscle.
DHT has a 3 to 5 times greater binding potency on the androgen receptor than testosterone, so the resulting effect from The One is a very powerful growth stimulus on skeletal muscle.
Androgens can act in a genomic (transcriptive, from direct AR binding) or non-genomic (non-AR binding) fashion on target cells.
Some examples of non-genomic effects: increased IGF-1 expression, displacement of estrogen and progesterone from receptor sites, displacement of aromatase, and increased uptake of calcium in the sarcoplasmic reticulum.
Genomic Effects and MOA:
The AR has four functional regions: a hinge region containing a nuclear localization signal, a carboxy-terminal ligand-binding domain (AF-2 site), an amino terminal regulatory domain (AF-1 site) and a DNA-binding domain composed of two zinc fingers.
ARs that are not ligated are located primarily in the cytoplasm, and are bound to heat shock proteins (HSPs). HSPs stabilize the tertiary structure of the AR, permitting androgen binding.
When The One binds the AR, there is a resulting dissociation of HSPs from the AR, allowing for dimerization (to be held together by molecular force) of the AR and subsequent tyrosine kinase phosphorylation, resulting in translocation (movement) of the AR to the nucleus.
When the AR translocates inside the nucleus, it binds androgen response elements located in the enhancer and promoter areas of target genes. This results in the consequential assembly of regulatory proteins, and the creation of an active complex for transcription.
The regulatory proteins form a cross-bridge with the AR, the RNA polymerase, and the pre-initiation complex. Specific coactivators begin transcription by recruiting protein clusters to DNA that change the chromatin scaffolding to a form that is more active for transcription.
The resulting activated transcription results in synthesis of mRNA, which is signaled by ribosomes to produce specific proteins. Changes in specific cell proteins follow, which in turn mediate growth responses, nitrogen balance, and protein synthesis, among other things.
The Compound is removed from the body via excretion, through the kidneys via glomelular filtration.

It has been mentioned to you before that your best chance is to order from AN direct, or from somone who WILL send to Australia (i.e. Nutra Planet).
I realize that, but in a PM it was also mentioned to me that AN would have to look at THEIR risk factor before sending, hence why I asked again.
