Ergopharm 1 Ad Prohormone Supplement Review

Ergopharm 1 Ad Review and 1 Ad Information (2003)

Ergopharm 1 Ad prohormone is a rather popular and often talked about prohormone these days, and rightfully so, cuz it works. Ergopharm is a major maker (and well recognized) of prohormones. If you didn't know, Ergopharm's lead chemist Patrick Arnold, is the guy who first introduced Androstenedione to the market, discovered 4 Androstenediol, and a few other major advances in prohormones - so you can be pretty sure most of the Ergopharm prohormones are good quality products.

Ergo pharm 1 AD Prohormone Information

Ergopharm 1 AD is 1-androstene-3beta, 17beta-diol - which is just the 'scientific' name. Now, on alotta ad pages, you're gonna see something like this:

  • Orally Active
  • Completely Non-Aromatizable to Estrogens
  • Extremely potent
  • Naturally occurring
  • Non-toxic

What's all this mean? Let's take a closer look and see why Ergopharm 1 AD works. :)

Ergopharm 1 AD - Orally Active

You're probably wondering, what the heck this means for Ergopharm 1 AD? What this simply means is that 1 AD doesn't lose its effectiveness even taken orally. (That's the easiest way to look at it.) Oral ingestion is the most common way to take most prohormones and other supplements. The downfall of this for most prohormones and androgenic steroids is that a lot of it gets deactivated (or wasted) by the liver.

Scientists have found by making the compounds into 17 alkalated (adding an alkyl chemical group to the 17-carbon), this "wasting" by the liver can be prevented. The problem of this, however, is that it made it very toxic for the liver, which is a no no for good health.

What Ergopharm claims 1 AD to be orally active is based on another structural modification where there is a double bond in the 1-position of the molecule. They've found this to help significantly reduce the "wasting", without being toxic to the liver, which means more effectiveness without the added health risks. ;-)

Because of this, Ergopharm 1 AD is probably one of the most potent prohormones available. Exactly what its conversion rates are, I looked everywhere, but can't find anything on it. >:-( A big reason for this is that 1 AD still lacks thorough research. You should know that Androstenedione has conversion of around 5%, Androstenediol has conversion of around 15%, so 1 AD will have a conversion quite a bit higher than Androstenediol. Again, exactly what it is, I have no idea, but you can bet its quite a bit higher. Read about Androstenedione and -diol here.

Ergo pharm 1 AD - High Potency and None Estrogenic

As said above, Ergopharm 1 AD is potent because it has high conversion and is orally active. Another factor which makes 1 AD potent is that its target hormone is 1-testosterone (1 AD converts to 1-testosterone which is an isomer of testosterone). 1-testosterone is androgenic like testosterone, however, research have found 1-testosterone to be 700% more anabolic (muscle building) than testosterone.

No kidding... considering that 1 AD already has a high conversion rate, and its target hormone is 1-testosterone, its pretty clear that Ergopharm 1 AD is one potent prohormone. (keep in mind tho, despite how good it sounds, in real world situations, it won't produce same results as under lab conditions.)

Another plus is that 1 AD is a -diol, which cannot aromatize to estrogens. 1 AD isn't going to cause any estrogen formation, which is a major concern with many prohormones.

Expected results with Ergopharm 1 AD?

For a rather pricey prohormone, Ergopharm 1 AD delivers results. Hey, you get what you pay for. from what I've seen, most people gain around 10 to 20lbs in about 4 weeks along with some great strength gains as well. It's gonna be different for everyone, so you'll have ta find out how well 1 AD would work for you. There isn't gonna be much if any water gains with 1 AD, and the weight you put on is gonna be mostly lean mass, so you're probably not gonna lose much of what you gain either. :)

At retail, a 60 cap bottle will run you up to over $70 bucks. A 60cap supply will last you around 10 to 15 days only (roughly 2 weeks), for a full 4 to 6 week cycle, you're gonna need about 3 bottles. At retail that puts you easily over $200 bucks. Ouch! Like I said, it's pretty pricey, but you get what you pay for. ;-) But follow the link below and you can get it $15 bucks cheaper online for the single bottle, and almost $60 bucks cheaper for the 3 bottle deal.

Ergopharm 1 AD is no longer available.
