Andro FAQ (Androstenedione, Androstenediol)

FAQ: What is Androstenedione?

Androstenedione is a direct precursor to testosterone. When it's processed by the liver, a hydrogen is added to make it into testosterone. Therefore, taking Androstenedione will help you increase your levels of testosterone, and gain muscle and strength.

FAQ: What is Androstenediol?

Androstenediol came after Androstenedione. They differ in the way they're converted into testosterone. Link -dione, -diol is also only 1 step away from testosterone. Read about Androstenedione and Androstenediol in this article.

FAQ: What does Andro do?

Taking Androstenedione or Androstenediol increases your level of testosterone, leading to greater strength, muscle development, more energy, and enhanced growth.

FAQ: Should I take Andro?

Well, that's really hard to answer. It really depends on you, how badly you want your gains, and whether you can deal with the potential side effects. If you're under 18, then definitely no. You're better off with creatine and supplementing with whey proteins. If you're considering taking Andro, understand it fully. Read all the articles we have here on prohormones.

FAQ: What are the side effects of Andro?

Because Androstenedione and Androstenediol are relatively new, no thorough studies have demonstrated long term effects; however, this does NOT mean there's no side effects. Some side effects you may experience include acne, premature balding, moodiness, shrinking testes. Read our Andro side effects article for details.

FAQ: What's the difference between Andro and Norandro?

Andro has a hydrogen atom missing in the 17th position. When it's processed by the liver, a hydrogen is added to make it into testosterone. A Norandro is missing the 17th hydrogen and the 19th carbon. When it's processed by the liver, a hydrogen is added, but not a carbon.

FAQ: Can Andro affect my hormone production in the long run?

Yes it can. If you continuously take Androstenedione or -diol, your natural hormone production systems will suffer, which is why testes shrinkage is a side effect. Most recommend you cycle with 6 weeks on and 2 weeks off; however, I think it's best to take your off period as long as your on period. This gives your natural systems more time to recover.

FAQ: When's the best time to take Andro?

In the morning, 30 to 60 minutes before a workout, and before you go to bed.

FAQ: What's better, Androstenedione or Androstenediol (4-AD)?

Most agree that Androstenediol is better than Androstenedione. Androstenediol can't directly convert into estrogen, have 15% conversion rate, and doesn't convert directly to DHT. You can read about this in detail in this article on the differences between Androstenedione and Androstenediol.

AST makes one of the more popular Androstenediol products: AST 4-diol-250. Each tablet contains 250mg of Androstenediol.
