1-AD is a prohormone from the Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals lineup that is part of the legendary Delta 1 family which included the original 1-AD and 1-Test. 1-AD contains the ingredient Androsterone, or 1-DHEA which has been used in many products over the years, but until just recently was always rendered useless by the body when being processed by the liver and harsh digestive processes. In other words, Androsterone always had the potential to be a potent anabolic compound, but until recently the absorption rate was too low to be effective.
Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals, utilizing their innovative Cyclosome technology (which was until recently only available in the pharmaceutical industry) has increased the utilization rate of this compound from an almost non-existent level of 3% to an extremely high 90% level! That’s 90% utilization of an ingredient that converts to pure testosterone in your body! According to the Journal of Applied Physiology, Androsterone was found to be as potent milligram for milligram as Testosterone Enathenate! 1-AD is the perfect product to help you gain lean muscle mass and strength.
Further increasing the effectiveness of Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals 1-AD is the inclusion of Laxogenin. This naturally occurring steroidal saponin has an anabolic/androgenic ratio similar to that of Anavar. However, unlike Anavar, it is completely legal and doesn’t have the negative side effects like suppression or toxicity.
Naturally occurring pro-steroid
Undergoes double conversion in body
First conversion is to metabolites 1-androstendiol and 1-androstenedione
Second conversion is into 1-testosterone which has androgenic effects
No aromatization/conversion to estrogen; Low to no gyno risk
Significantly increases strength and muscle mass
Marked increases in vascularity
Also known as 5-Alpha-Hydroxy-Laxogenin
Sapogenin; steroidal constituent of the plant Smilax Sieboldii
Shown to possess an anabolic/androgenic ratio similar that to the steroid Anavar
Unlike the steroid, no hormone suppression, shut down, toxicity or false test positives
Reduces Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG); promotes higher levels of free testosterone
Increases nitrogen retention and promotes lipolysis
Reduces thyroid binding globulin; increases utilization of T3
