7,17-alpha-dimethyl-androsten-3,17-diol (Boladrol)

7,17-alpha-dimethyl-androsten-3,17-diol is a powerful prohormone that, after ingestion, converts to Bolasterone.

Boladrol is a "wet" compound that is both very anabolic and androgenic, which means increases in mass and strength along with increased aggression in the gym and better state of mind. The original manufacturer claims Boladrol is stronger than every other prohormone currently available. It's been compared to Anadrol, a well known powerful anabolic compound.

There is no need to stack Boladrol with another prohormone and doing so would just increase side effects. Boladrol may be stacked with a supplement that reduces estrogen in the body to help combat the estrogen related side effects.

A new prohormone from PHF/IBE, never seen before on the prohormone or pharmaceutical market, that converts in vivo to the steroid Bolasterone. Bolasterone was invented in 1959 and in 1962 was described as "the most potent oral anabolic agent which had yet been examined".

Boladrol is a "diol" prohormone, and should convert well to the active hormone via the same mechanism as all 3b,17b-diols: the enzyme 3-β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, or 3b-HSD.

Structurally, Boladrol is a testosterone derivative, having the C3-C4 double bond common to this class of hormone. It resembles methyl testosterone in that it has a 17a-methyl group, though differs from it in that it has an additional methyl group at position 7a, and a hydroxyl at position 3b, whereas methyl test has a 3-ketone function. The addition of the methyl group at 7a greatly increases both the androgen receptor affinity and the anabolic properties of the compound.

Structurally it would appear likely to aromatise to a potent dimethylated estrogen, though the 7a-methyl may provide steric hindrance to the reaction. In fact there's evidence that some 7a-alkylated testosterone derivatives have aromatase inhibiting properties, with smaller 7a substitutions making stronger inhibitors than bulkier substitutions.

This 7a-methyl group will also prevent the steroid from being 5a-reduced, but does not prevent it from being 5b-reduced, so all metabolites lacking the delta-4 double bond will be inactive 5b-reduced metabolites.

Effects should be similar to the oral anabolic steroid Bolasterone, a strongly anabolic, moderately androgenic compound which should elicit significant strength gains and increased accumulation of muscle mass. Since it's a powerful compound, and aromatisation a likelihood, weight gain is likely to be quick resulting from a mix of muscle mass and an increase in water retention on cycle. A SERM PCT protocol followed after cycle.

Side-effects may include but are not limited to: loss of or heightened libido, elevated liver enzymes and potential temporary liver function impairment, HPTA disruption, adverse shifts in lipoprotein subfractions (increased HDL, lowered LDL cholesterol), acne, hair growth or loss, and an increase in blood pressure. This product should not be used by women or teens.

The clinical evaluation of Bolasterone in the 1960s found it to be effective at promoting weight gain at doses of just 1-2mg. They also found it to be around twice as potent as dianabol by nitrogen retention studies. As with any new compound, sensible users will keep dosages low and cycle-lengths short, until those with less caution have established some guidelines of how not to do it. Early Boladrol adopters have been dosing between 4 and 8mg per day for two to four weeks, and reporting great results.
