High-risk dietary supplements are those that may present serious health risks. Many have been found to contain undeclared drug ingredients, steroids, steroid-like ingredients, and/or stimulants, which can have negative and dangerous side effects. Products most commonly “tainted” in this way are those marketed for bodybuilding, performance enhancement, weight loss, sexual enhancement, and diabetes. Such products may also result in a positive drug test. For more information, read FDA’s Consumer Update “Tainted Products Marketed as Dietary Supplements.” For more information about urinalysis and drug testing, read OPSS’s “ Dietary supplements and drug testing .”
Interestingly, Trenavar and Trenbolone – also known as “Tren” – are so alike that cycling with this prohormone will actually lead to the stimulation of the naturally active trenbolone in the body, leading to greater vascularity, faster loss of fat as well as considerable boosts in size and strength. This is because Trenavar targets the 17b-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (17b-HSD1) when it gets metabolized by the body. As soon as the compound of Trenavar gets hydrogenated inside the system, its conversion into Trenbolone takes place.
The active compound in Superdrol is methasterone (systematic IUPAC name: 17β-Hydroxy-2α,17α-dimethyl-5α-androstane-3-one) – also known as methyldrostanolone and methasteron – which rose to superstar status during its run for the speedy results it can deliver when cycled, especially in terms of very hard and dry gains just after a couple of weeks of usage. Reports of achieving upwards of 20 to 30 pounds of muscle mass were not uncommon from users after cycling with Superdrol in the span of 4 weeks. Its half-life is timed at 6 to 8 hours.
