3-beta-hydroxyetioallocholan-17-one (Stanodrol)

To sum it up succinctly 3-beta-hydroxyetioallocholan-17-one=DHT.

The process to get this is complex, but this is what you end up with in the end. There are no intermediate steps involving testosterone or DHEA.

If works has designed (which logs seem to prove true) it can be expected to express most of the properties of DHT based compounds which are strength/hardness.

I read some posts claiming this is DHEA and doesn't do anything, while other posts claim it's stanolone which is DHT.

Stano-Drol is one of the supplements that has this and the company literature reads "a naturally occurring pro-hypertrophic compound that is a precursor to Stanolone (DHT derivative).' 'Naturally occurring' makes me smell something stinky, and that points my nose in the direction of DHEA, which--for bodybuilders--doesn't do anything as far as muscualr or strength gains.

Found this on the internets:
this nomenclature isn't right: 3-beta-hydroxyetioallocholan-17-one, because if we rearrange this to make sense this is what you get: 5a-androst-3-one-17b-ol. This this is plain dihydrotestosterone aka DHT, an a illegal compound. But then, they could be intending it to be 5-Androsten-3beta-ol-17-one, which would be DHEA (and legal), but they left out the ene in the nomenclature on the packaging. If it was DHEA, it would look like this: 5a-androsten-3-one-17b-ol, so something is not right.

Followed by:
When you rearranged the nomenclature, your 3b-hydroxy (-ol) became 3-ketone (-one), and your 17-ketone became 17b-hydroxy. The rearranged should read: 5a-androst-17-one-3b-ol. This is a 2-step conversion to stanolone via the 3b-HSD and 17b-HSD enzymes. If the 17-one converts to 17b-ol, and the 3b-ol converts to 3-one, then you have stanolone (DHT), which is what is claimed.

Whew.
