4-Androstene-3b-ol, 17-One Same as DHEA?


#1

Someone gave me a bottle of this new form of 4AD. I was going to try it out, but heard lately on forums that it's crap and 4-androstene-3b-ol,17-one is just a fancy name for dhea. Some disagree and say it's a step closer to testosterone than dhea, and it does work if you take a shit load of it. What's the truth with this crap?

If being sold now, it is not 4-androstene-3b-ol-17-one as that is a controlled substance. It is actual 4-AD.

As for the crap now being sold deceptively as “4-AD,” well, it is crap. But it isn’t DHEA.
