I have seen quite a few solo 3-AD/ reviews around the forums. I have really wanted to try this new product out. Adrenosterone is the first true selective 11b-HSD1 reductase inhibitor to hit the OTC market. I decided to try it out and report back to the membership because I’m sure many of you are curious like me. This product has been heavily hyped. I will be posting my review/mini-log here. I wont be doing a daily log as I find those to be pretty silly. I will make weekly comments regarding notable effects, observations, or side effects.
Based on previous reviews, Adrenosterone has proven to be a mild yet effective prohormone. If you are looking for a healthier, milder alternative to the Superdrols of the world, this seems to be a good choice. It should also help reduce body fat quite well. In my opinion, it is an ideal choice for a cutting cycle. Taken alone, it’s more than enough to help prevent catabolism in a calorie deficit while also reducing cortisol which drastically helps reduce visceral fat.
For this application, I decided to stack 3-AD with Havoc. The combination of adrenosterone and epitiostanol is a perfect match for a cutter. I have used epi multiple times since it hit the market so I am familiar with its effects on body fat. I’m hoping to see a more noticeable reduction in fat, specifically abdominal fat and visceral fat. I will also be including Lipo6-X and which I have also used in the past. I am familiar with the results of all of these together as I have stacked them before. Sesathin has pretty much become a staple (like ) in my diet anyway. Im interested in in seeing if the addition of 3-AD will lead to an even more noticeable reduction in fat.
My current daily (year round):
-2-3g vitamin C
-5-6g enteric fish oil gels
-1000 IU vitamin D3
-1.5-2g ALCAR (NP)
-1500/1200/1000mg Glucosamine Chondroitin w/ MSN
-400-800mg Lecithin (only when not taking Sesathin)
-800-1200mg Garlic bulb extract (enteric coated)
-400 IU vitamin E
-1000mg Green Teat Extract (50% ) – Bulk NP caps
DanActive (Lactobacillus casei)
Pre-workout (30-45min prior):
-1 serving flavored oatmeal
-Whey Protein Shake (either ON 100% whey or Ergopharm depending on funds)
-2g Bulk powder (NP)
-3g Bulk (or BCAA blend) (NP)
-Half serving of creatine:
1 serving = Magnesium 350mg
Betaine Anhydrous 2000mg
-Whey Protein Shake (30-60g protein)
-Half serving of
-3g (or BCAA blend) (proetin+carb+ = major bump in mTOR/protein synth.)
-40-50g carbs – oatmeal, rice cakes, Gatorade, 100% Concord Grape Juice (phytonutrients) Considering trying Waxy Maize…
3-AD: 450mg/day – 4 weeks (1 bottle) Thanks to Mace, Dr.D and AX
Havoc: 30mg/day – 5 weeks ( I have 2 bottles, may go 6 weeks)
Lipo6-X: 4 caps/day (AM & 5pm) – 4 weeks
Ephedrine HCL: 25mg + 100mg caffeine Pre-Workout only (spaced in between Lipo6 dosages)
I expect great increases in strength, and muscle fullness. In addition, I hope to see increased fat loss (especially abdominally) and hardening above and beyond what epitiostanol alone might offer.
One reason Trenbolone is so popular for cutting is because of its amazing effects on body fat and overall body recomposition. Part of this is obviously due to its extremely androgenic nature. But it is also speculated that it also has a lot to do with Tren’s overwhelming reduction in cortisol. Like Tren, this stack should offer increased androgen levels and decreased cortisol. In addition, we also get increased insulin sensitivity.
