    4-ad Converstion To Test


    This is purely speculation and I'm curious if perhaps someone has more insight they could share. 4-ad, specifically 4-ad RMS Chrome tablets, list a 'proprietary blend' of 200mg. The two compounds in said blend being 4-Androstene-3B-ol-17-one and Hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin. I can't find the ratio of the two. The 4-ad becomes test via a two-step conversion. Now, as far as I understand, if we assume a 1:1 ratio and assign a 10% endstate conversion - just for this example - then one 200mg tab provides roughly 10mg of testosterone.

    So, hypotheticals aside, does anyone know how much testosterone this provides in the end?

    From what I have read the oral A:A ratio is unknown.

    Did find an oral bioavailability 'estimate' at 4%

    I wasn't referencing the anabolic:androgenic ratio. I meant the ratio between the active 4-ad compound and whatever the Hydro-blahblahblah is. 190mg of active compound is very different than 90mg, you know?

    Where did you find that number, if you don't mind me asking?

    Oh ok gotcha....miss read. I got that number from a DS/PH profile sticky at primordial performance which is now shut down and the board is closed so I can't link it to you if I wanted to. I printed it off before the board closed. The stickys on that board were top notch and I learned a lot. Not sure where PP got that number but Eric P seemed like a very intelligent individual that cared about his product and customer base so I trust what he posted.

    I recall PP... unfortunate scenario, that whole thing. Thanks much for the information, friend.

    Now if we can just find the amount of actual 4-ad in the 200mg we'd be golden.

    Pp just made the numbers up.

    It is impossible to estimate conversion rate in vivo.

    I'm not arguing 4-ad's efficacy. Within the context of a test base, it gets the job done, though I find I prefer around 6 tabs as opposed to recommended 2. Of course, manufacturer dosage recommendations have become virtually worthless.

    if it makes y'all feel any better, I like ams, I've used their diendrone, then dienedrone utt, 4-ad utt, mass drops, and yesterday I ordered two bottles of 4-ad rde.

    I also like forrunner labs. it's good stuff.

    Oh, they're good in my book. There is world of difference between tren solo and tren with 4-ad.

    What does utt designate?

    I read a patrick arnold article one time on the conversion rate of 4ad and i believe he stated that its impossible to get a accurate number for conversion because the hormone can keep converting back and forth between 4ad and test. But if it converts to a estrogen metabolite it cannot convert back to 4ad or test.

    btw bioavailability will be extremely high and the half-life very short.

    Method1
    For the first method we will formulate it for a total of 2g of steroid.
    Dissolve 18g of HPBCD in 80ml saline in a beaker on a stir plate. Once this is dissolved, slowly add the 2g of steroid over about 5 minutes. Let this stir overnight. Filter out any insoluble particles. This provides a 25mg/ml solution.

    Method 2
    For the second method, we will formulate it for 1g of steroid.
    Triturate (mix in a mortar with a pestle) 9g HPBCD with 1g steroid. Place this in a high humidity environment for 2-4 days. I have used a covered fish tank with water in the bottom, but anything that can create a humid environment will work. A syrup will form, and this is dissolved in 40ml saline and you have a 25mg/ml solution.

    Method 3
    For the third method, we will formulate for 4g of steroid.
    Triturate 36g of HPBCD with 4g steroid. Let this sit at normal room temperature and humidity for a week. Complexation will occur, but takes time with this process Dissolve the powder in 160ml saline. This again makes a 25mg/ml solution.
    Ready, set, science boner.
    If you start a thread about a cycle with four methyls or the phrase NEED HELP!!!, you should probably just go kill yourself.

    not sure how half life is affected.

    testosterone itself has a half life of 4hrs.

    once the ester is removed from the ment, it's half live has been noted as being around 40min-2hrs or so, cant remember exactly, but I know the low end was in the minutes.

    but yea, when I would run 4-androstenediol, I dosed it every 4 hours.
