Androstenedione Supplement Review
and Androstenedione BenefitsAndrostenedione through a specific enzyme, is considered to be one of the single best "food" that is available to support the natural healthy production of the body's testosterone.
Androstenedione is a potent androgen; a metabolite of DHEA which serves as a direct precursor (one step removed) in the bio-synthesis of Testosterone. Androstenedione is produced primarily in the adrenal gland. Oral supplementation with Androstenedione has been shown to have dramatically increase "free" (the non-bound biologically active) testosterone levels through a single enzymatic reaction in the liver, with the help of a zinc-dependent enzyme. Increases as high as 300% have been reported within just minutes after ingestion. Studies show that after taking one capsule 100mg of androstenedione, the testosterone/epitestosterone (T/E) ratios rise as high as 13/1. This represents a 5 to 6 fold increase over the normal T/E ratio. Secondary to this increase, other beneficial effects such as increased energy, enhanced recovery and growth from exercise, heightened sexual arousal and function, as well as a greater sense of well being have also been experienced.
Men who have prostate problems and women who may have a predisposition towards breast cancer should advise their physician that they are supplementing androstenedione. The physician may then monitor the levels of testosterone and estrogen for any changes while taking androstenedione. Also, because Androstenedione is an androgen (male hormone), women should watch for signs of masculinization such as increased growth of facial hair. Also, some men may possibly experience a slight incidence of gynecomastia. If any changes are noted, decrease or stop using Androstenedione is advised.
It is recommended that MEN swallow one capsule with some water, on an empty stomach, twice a day. Be sure to take one of this daily dose approximately 1 to 2 hours prior to training as blood levels of androstenedione are raised during exercise, at which time the blood flow to the muscles is optimized.
Approximately after three weeks of using Androstenedione, the body begins to acknowlege the additional hormone levels and reacts by 'suppressing' the endogenous testosterone levels. What this means is that whatever the body was producing in it's 'natural state' (before the use of supplements, steroids etc.) will slow it down to accommodate for the new influx of additional hormone.
Women if they so should choose to use Androstenedione should take only one capsule of a day, ideally 1 to 2 hours prior to training. Again, women should ideally choose not to use Androstene due to it's androgenic inducing capabilities.
