1-AD® by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals is based upon a naturally occurring metabolite for many animals including man that has properties far different from standard testosterone in the body.
In January 2005 the supplement industry witnessed the banning of the best natural legal hormonal products ever produced. We are referring to the 1-Test & 1-AD family of supplements. These "delta-ones" (as they were referred to) changed the entire legal hormone market. There was nothing like them before their introduction and there has been nothing like them since. "Delta-ones" included the original 1-AD's (1-androstenedione and 1-androstenediol) and the 1-test esters and ethers. Hi-Tech's 1-AD® converts to 1-Testosterone is more of a mild hormone that will give you cleaner gains and dramatic strength increases.
1-Androsterone aka 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one is still available on the U.S. market and is the key component of 1-AD®. In a recent study released in the Journal of Applied Physiology, the oral prohormone 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one was found to be as potent milligram-for-milligram to Testosterone enathate, the gold standard for Testosterone products!
Very few dietary supplements have been subjected to a clinical study. However, the active prohormone 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one was the subject of a clinical study at the West Texas A&M University, the California Baptist University and the University of Texas at Austin. The results showed 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one to be significantly more powerful than it would appear structurally. The 9 males gained an average lean mass of 10.4 lbs and an increase in strength of 92.2 lbs in total load on bench/squat/deadlift. These are significant gains from a prohormone. The researchers concluded that the prohormone supplement contributed to robust improvements in muscle mass and strength in resistance trained.
