How about a prohormone that you can buy at Walmart? As of this writing (4/5/2014), a fairly powerful prohormone is on Walmart’s web site as “LG Sciences LGS-83039 1-Androstenolone Liquid.” From what I have read, 1-Androstenolone (3b-hydroxy-androst-1-ene-17-one) is actually converted directly into testosterone with very little effect on estradiol or DHT. And, according to the company, it is liver safe as well.
So why would a prohormone be sold by Walmart? After all, wasn’t the prohormone 1-Testosterone sold legally and then banned in 2006? 1-Testosterone was determined to be highly androgenic, i.e. had a powerful effect on male-related properties, and then reclassified as a Schedule III drug. Rememer Mark McGwire? His prohormone, androstenedione, was banned just two years prior. My guess is that it is simply ignorance. I don’t see it, for example, on Target’s or Amazon’s web site.
How much will 1-Androstenolone boost testosterone? I could not find even one study or half-baked internet story for that matter out there with any numbers. Furthermore, even the manufacturer is not publishing any direct information as far as I know. The only information that I could find is that some steroid forums claim that you would have to consume 500 mg of 1-Androstenolone to get a significant boost.

If this is true, then this may be why no one the product seems to be off the radar: 500 mg would be 25 servings! A serving is only 20 mg and there are 120 servings in the container. Prices are $40 and $55 and so to take excessive amount would incur a fair amount of expense. Plus, the company has packaged it with a bunch of other ingredients, including “glycerol, HPBCD, citric acid, Na Benzoate, Ca EDTA, K sorbate, N&A flavor, sucralose, ace K, stevia, xanthan gum.” So, taking extra 1-Androstenlogne would mean ingesting things like extra sucralose and ace K, something most guys aren’t really interested in doing. .
However, there are signs that you may not need much to boost your testosterone: the product is supposed to be taken sublingually. That’s right – this product should get some absorption under the tongue, which means it should be well-absorbed.
So is it safe to consume a prohormone? In my opinion, it is quite risky For example, I challenge you to go to pubmed or any authority site and find any useful information on this compound. Side effects, efficacy, half-life – nothing! As far as I can tell, the manufacturer is releasing very little information.
And look at this description from one of our Peak Testosterone Forum members”
“Hi all. I am only 22 years old and have low T. I do have a brief history of taking prohormones, which I think have had a role in my low T. Anyways, in early april I was taking a product that had Epistane (small dose, but still a prohormone) and that was also an AI. I stopped after about 10 days, because here were my symptoms (and 2 months later, still are my symptoms) Emotionless. Can’t feel any emotions. I used to be very passionate, loving, affectionate, excitable, but now I literally can’t feel anything. Zombie like.”
“I am extremely tired and can barely make it through the day. It takes everything in my power to workout, and when I do my heart races and I get light headed easily. My endurance sexually is not very long and my libido is definitely down. More irritable/impatient than ever, and frequent anxiety. I got blood work done in mid april and my total test was 319. LH and FSH were 1. SHBG was 19. I had the tests repeated a month later and total test was 317, LH 2, SHBG 30.” 
6-OXO was another untested testosterone booster that was reported to cause blood clots in some men. It’s one thing to take a supplement like Korean Ginseng or Pycnogenol that has been through 50+ studies and used widely by many patients. It’s still another thing to take a prohormone like this that has no studies and virtually no track records with clients and customers. Do you really want to be the first?
