T Nation

Alpha Male Question

Would this technically be considered a pro hormone? If not, what exactly is it?

NO

read the product description, its and herbal and supplement blend essentially that boost ones natural ability to produce T etc. It doesnt replace your own levels just optimizes your.

So it’s safe?

but it contains Carbolin 19 right? that means it’s an anabolic substance? Carbolin 19 is being compared to anavar. most probably means banned under WADA (world anti doping agency) , ie, not allowed in most sports?

Well food is a very anabolic substance so I guess the WADA will not allow you to eat either.

You know, dude, before you start supposing, you should try and look up the facts first. Anavar (oxandrolone) is banned, but colforsin 1,9-ethylcarbonate is not.

You would have to check with your sport’s governing body to determine if it is banned.

It’s has anabolic properties but it is not a steroid or pro-hormone.

Yes it is safe and effective and will not shut you down or cause sides that I know of. Anavar will do both if taken in high enough doses.

There is a huge difference in something being “anabolic” and it being an “Anabolic Androgenic Steroid”. It’s similar to asking if water is legal to consume before driving because it’s a “drink”.

From Wikipedia:

"Anabolism refers to the cumulative metabolic intracellular, molecular processes by which every cell repairs itself and grows. One way of categorizing metabolic processes, whether at the cellular, organ or organism level is as ‘anabolic’ or ‘catabolic’, which is the opposite.

Anabolism is powered by catabolism, where large molecules are broken down into smaller parts and then used up in respiration. Many anabolic processes are powered by adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

Anabolic processes tend toward “building up” organs and tissues. These processes produce growth and differentiation of cells and increase in body size, a process that involves synthesis of complex molecules. Examples of anabolic processes include growth and mineralization of bone and increase of muscle mass.

Because it is counterproductive to have anabolic and catabolic processes occurring in cells simultaneously, there are many signals that switch on anabolic processes while switching off catabolic processes and vice versa.

Most of the known signals are hormones and the molecules involved in metabolism itself. Endocrinologists have traditionally classified many of the hormones as anabolic or catabolic."
