aaaannnnd the kitchen sink!

I'm going to take the lazy man's way out here and recommend you don't take this. I'm seeing different nomenclatures for compounds, so that makes me feel uncertain as to if they are the true compounds or if the manufacturer made an error in listing thing the way they did.

Let's disregard concerns over the accuracy of the label for a moment just to consider this:

DecaFire has 1-Andro, 2 forms of superdrol, 2 forms of halodrol, and cyanostane (not to sure for the halodrol and superdrol compounds as they are altered as listed).

SO... not 2, not 3, not even 4 or 5, but - if the label is to be believed, you've got 6 different prohormones stacked here. And at 2 pills a day.

I'm afraid, my Faithful Readers, very afraid....

17b-hydroxy-2a,17b-dimethyl-5a-androstan-3-one-azine (Dymethazine)

Trade Name: Dymethazine

Dymethazine (aka mebolazine) was brought to market by iForce Nutrition in 2009, however, despite Dymethazine being 'legal' it was largely taken off the market due to recent FDA activities. Despite this, clones of the original Dymethazine have already been brought to the market. Dymethazine and DZine are interchangeable featuring the same compound (2,17-dimethyl-5-androstan-17-ol-3,3-one-azine)

Dymethazine is an azine, two superdrol molecules attached to each other by a nitrogen atom. Stomach acid separates the two superdrol molecules from each other, after which they make their way to the androgen receptors. Dymethazine is also known as mebalozine.

Dymethazine is nearly identical to Superdrol, except it's two (as opposed to one) superdrol molecules attached to each other. Your body's stomach acid separates these two molecules prior to absorption, so it becomes a single molecule with two potential pathways. Despite this difference, Superdrol remains the more powerful compound.

The one advantage Dymethazine has over Superdrol is the lower likelihood/greater managability of side effects. Dymethazine is an incredibly potent compound and carries the same risks as any other powerful anabolic steroid or pro-hormone.

In a study, patients were administered Dymethazine for 45+ days. Liver values did not change for 50% of patients, while the other 50% noticed only modest to moderate increases in liver values. So, while Dymethazine can increase liver values, it is not as harsh as the current strong methyls currently available.

Dymethazine features 0% ability to aromatize and expresses an extremely weak androgenic activity. This means Dymethazine will produce gain with little to no liver impact and will cause no estrogen related side effects.

2a,17a-dimethyl-17b-Hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one (Superdrol)

Yet another nomenclature for Superdrol.

2a,17a-dimethyl-17b-hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one and 2a,17a-di-methyl-etiocholan-3-one,17b-ol are the same exact compounds written differently. They are both methylated at the 2a and 17a positions, both have a hydroxyl (alcohol, -OH) group at the 17b potion, and a ketone at position three. Just one attempts to use the term etiocholan, which isn't used too often.

2a,17a-dimethyl-17b-hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one is a derivative of Drostanolon (also called Dromostanolone), which is also known as the commercial AAS Masteron. Drostanolon has a chemical structure of 2a-methyl-17b-hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one. Drostanolon is the 2-methylated form of DHT, so it has typically been used for reducing body-fat and water retention, while increasing muscle hardness and density, as it cannot form estrogen.

2a,17a-dimethyl-17b-hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one is a derivative of Drostanolon, except it is a di-methyl instead of a methyl. It has one methyl in the 17th position, just like M-1-t and M-Dien, but it also has a 2nd methyl in the 2nd position.

This is how the derivative is different from standard Drostanolon, in that it has another methyl in the 17th position. Standard Drostanolon has one in the 2nd position, and not the 17th like M-1-t.

Also, it is a saturated modified form of anadrol, so you get the best of both worlds without the progesterone, estrogen, bloat, hypertension problems with anadrol.
Zero estrogen conversion, because it's 5-reduced and A-ring alkylated. Also, the parent compound (masteron) is used exclusively as an anti-neoplastic for metastatic breast cancer, so it's a strong anti-estrogen.

The chemical has been named methasteron and the product Supderdrol.

2-cyano-17a-methyl-17b-hydroxy-androst-3-one (Cyanostane)

Also called Cynabol

Cyanostane is a new prohormone which features an alteration of the superdrol compound, with a cyano bond instead of the 2a methyl superdrol bond. It's relatively new with few reviews.

The chemical structure is the same as methyldrostanolone (Superdrol), except it has a cyano group on the 2 position instead of a methyl group. It is a C-17aa steroid and it will be liver toxic, although, due to the lack of the 4-ene on ring A and lack of 2-methylation, liver toxicity may be reduced relative to a di-methylated steroid such as Superdrol.

Expected results would be lean gain as this compound cannot convert to estrogen. Based on the chemical structure the anabolic potency would appear to be fairly potent with moderate androgenic potency.

There seems to be a nomenclature mistake on the labeling for this steroid. The chemical name contains the term "androst", assuming that there is some sort of ene group on ring A. But there does not seem to be such mention of an ene group on ring A. Therefore, the term androst should be androstan. But if this is the case, the 2-cyano group needs to be stated as alpha or beta. This makes a big difference, since usually C2-alpha groups are significantly more effective than beta.

There are studies about other 2-cyano steroids such as 2-cyano-DHT and 2-cyano-progesterone. In separate studies, one done on dogs, it was seen that both of these 2-cyano steroids caused inhibition of 3b-HSD enzyme. This inhibition would cause severe adrenal suppression. This is a very unsafe inhibition. Whether it occurs in this cyano steroid is unknown, but users need to be aware of this possibility.

3-hydroxy-5alpha-androst-1-en-17-one

Hmmm, I can't seem to find much info on this other than a few snippets from some forum posts.

According to a poster named Archaic: "Its a two step conversion pro-hormone to testosterone, this makes it only effective in high doses. Its very similar to if not almost the same as 1-andro RX by IronMagLabs. It would be considered a very mild ph, but expensive as most would recommend 600mgs per day for a good cycle."

VaughnTrue says: "this stuff is 1-dhea...been out for a while now, AMS had it first. decent ingredient, but id expect people to run 600-800mg/day for decent results."

HenryV, a HIGHLY respected authority on prohromones offers this: 3-hydroxy-5alpha-androst-1-en-17-one 100mg = 1-androsterone"

So the consensus seems to be that this compound is legit, but mild, best used by beginners for a longer cycle run.

4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1,4-diene-3-17b-diol (Halovar)

A clone of Halodrol (4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1, 4-diene-3b,17b-diol)

Halodrol is a 17aa steroid that converts to the steroid oral Turinabol after interaction with 3b-HSD at an estimated rate of about 5%. Because of this low conversion, doses must be higher than other 17aa pro-steroids. However, it is suspected that Halodrol has decent potency without conversion as good results are seen despite the relatively low conversion to Turinabol. Halodrol appears to be about as potent as testosterone, and significantly less androgenic.

Because of the 4-chloro group, halodrol has no progestational effects, it cannot interact with the aromatase enzyme, and it produces inactive 4-chloro-DHT metabolites. This makes androgenic side-effects such as hair loss, high blood pressure, acne and prostate enlargement less likely.

The lack of androgenic potency might be expected to create problems with gyno, however the low SHBG binding affinity has minimal interference with SHBG levels and/or freely circuiting estrogen and testosterone. It does not appear that halodrol has a significant gyno risk.

Because halodrol must be used at such a high dose to see noticeable effects, liver toxicity may become an issue. Therefore it is recommended to use a liver protecting supplement before and during halodrol cycles.

Gains from Halodrol generally take a few weeks to notice, but users can expect solid increases in strength, lean muscle mass, improved vascularity and minimal water retention. This allows some of the gains to be kept after the cycle if good diet and training are continued. Quick dramatic gains in size and strength are not generally noticed with Halodrol.

H-Drol is one of the most popular and proven compounds on the market and is considered good for beginners due to it's reputation for minimal side effects and dry gains that are relatively easy to maintain after the cycle is complete.

4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1,4-diene-3b,17b-diol (Halodrol)

Trade name: Halodrol, also known as H-Drol

Avena Sativa (Common Oat)

The common oat (Avena sativa) is a species of cereal grain grown for its seed, which is known by the same name. While oats are suitable for human consumption as oatmeal and rolled oats, one of the most common uses is as livestock feed.

Oats are most commonly rolled or crushed into oatmeal or ground into oat flour. Oatmeal is chiefly eaten as porridge, but may also be used in a variety of baked goods, such as oatcakes, oatmeal cookies, and oat bread. Oats are also an ingredient in many cold cereals, in particular muesli and granola. Oats may also be consumed raw, and cookies with raw oats are becoming popular.

In Britain, oats used for brewing beer. Oatmeal stout is one variety brewed using a percentage of oats for the wort. A cold, sweet drink called Avena made of ground oats and milk is a popular refreshment throughout Latin America.

Oat bread was first manufactured in Britain, where the first oat bread factory was established in 1899. In Scotland, a dish called sowans was made by soaking the husks from oats for a week, so that the fine, floury part of the meal remained as sediment to be strained off, boiled and eaten. Oats are also widely used there as a thickener in soups, as barley or rice might be used in other countries.

Oat extract can also be used to soothe skin conditions. It is the principal ingredient for the Aveeno line of products.

Oat grass has been used traditionally for medicinal purposes, including to help balance the menstrual cycle, treat dysmenorrhoea, and for osteoporosis and urinary tract infections.

Oats are generally considered healthful. The discovery of the healthy cholesterol-lowering properties has led to wider appreciation of oats as human food.

Oats contain more soluble fibre than any other grain, resulting in slower digestion and an extended sensation of fullness. One type of soluble fibre, beta-glucans, has proven to help lower cholesterol.

Oats are the only cereal containing a globulin or legume-like protein, avenalin, as the major (80%) storage protein. The more typical cereal proteins, such as gluten and zein, are prolamines (prolamins). The minor protein of oat is a prolamine, avenin.

Oat protein is nearly equivalent in quality to soy protein, which World Health Organization research has shown is equal to meat, milk, and egg protein. The protein content of the hull-less oat kernel (groat) ranges from 12 to 24%, the highest among cereals.

Coeliac disease (celiac disease) is often associated with the ingestion of a group of proteins labelled prolamines, or more commonly, gluten. Oats lack many of the prolamines found in wheat; however, oats do contain avenin. Avenin is a prolamine that is toxic to the intestinal mucosa of avenin-sensitive individuals, and can trigger a reaction.

The most recent research indicates that some cultivars of oat can be a safe part of a gluten-free diet, because different varieties of oat have different levels of toxicity. Although oats do contain avenin, there are several studies suggesting that this may not be problematic for all coeliacs.

Chrysin

Chrysin (5,7-Dihydroxyflavone) is a flavonoid extracted from the plant Passiflora coerulea, a member of the passion flower family. It is promoted in bodybuilding to be an effective aromatase inhibitor. Aromatase causes the conversion of testosterone into estradiol and androstenedione into estrone.

Chrysin is widely sold in the supplement industry despite the fact that no real-life studies have been able to substantially prove its effectiveness in humans. Studies done in-vivo show that orally administered chrysin does not have clinical aromatase inhibitor activity.

Studies observed chrysin has no effect on estrogen levels, but may have other detrimental effects to the body, particularly to thyroid function. A 30 day study administered chrysin to four groups of mice both orally and via injection to examine chrysin's effect on serum estrogen levels. The results showed chrysin had no effect on estrogen levels. Further, the mice treated with chrysin became considerably fatter, possibly due to chrysin's ability to disrupt thyroid function.

Another study on rats administered 50 mg of chrysin per kg body weight, considerably more than found in dietary supplements. Chrysin was found to have no ability to inhibit aromatase, possibly due to poor absorption or bioavailability.

Long Jack (Eurycoma Longifolia, Tongkat Ali, Pasak Bumi)

Long Jack (Eurycoma longifolia - commonly called tongkat ali or pasak bumi) is a flowering plant in the family Simaroubaceae, native to Indonesia, Malaysia, and, to a lesser extent, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos.

Even though there are other legitimate medical areas of interest in Eurycoma longifolia, most Southeast Asians consume it for the plant's impact on sexual conduct. Already in 2001, Malaysian scientific researchers opened their peer-reviewed, Medline-archived report on Eurycoma longifolia's effect on lab rats with the statement "that Eurycoma longifolia Jack commonly known as Tongkat Ali has gained notoriety as a symbol of man's ego and strength by the Malaysian men because it increases male virility and sexual prowess during sexual activities."

Some scientific studies found that it enhances sexual characteristics and performance in rodents. Other laboratory animal tests have produced positive indications, with one extract having been observed to increase sexual activity in mature rats, including arousal, sniffing, and mounting behavior. In an experiment conducted on male rats, it was found that eurycoma longifolia increases sperm count. The authors also reported that the plasma testosterone level of Eurycoma longifolia extract treated rats "was significantly increased when compared with that of the control and infertile animals."

Another group of scientists confirmed that Eurycoma longifolia has the capacity to "reverse the inhibitory effects of estrogen on testosterone production and spermatogenesis." One Medline-indexed journal article cited as result that Eurycoma longifalia had an effect similar to testosterone replacement therapy in counteracting ostereoposis.

In a placebo-controlled human study with healthy young men in a weight-training program, it was found that "the lean body mass of the treatment group showed a significant increment, from 52.26 (7.18) kg to 54.39 (7.43) kg (p = 0.012)." The results of the study were published in the peer-reviewed British Journal of Sports Medicine.

The anabolic impact of Eurycoma longifolia has been confirmed in the animal model, when the size and weight of just one muscle was measured in treated and untreated rats of equal size. "Results showed that 800 mg/kg of butanol, methanol, water and chloroform fractions of E. longifolia Jack significantly increased (p<0.05) the leavator ani muscle".

Because of Eurycoma longifolia's testosterone-enhancing capacity, it has been included in numerous supplements marketed primarily to body building men. In gym circles, Eurycoma longifolia Jack is commonly referred to as Longjack.

Milk Thistle (SILYMARIN)

The milk thistle is a thistle of the genus Silybum Adans., a flowering plant of the daisy family (Asteraceae). They are native to the Mediterranean regions of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. The name "milk thistle" derives from two features of the leaves: they are mottled with splashes of white and they contain a milky sap.

The seeds of the milk thistle have been used for 2000 years to treat chronic liver disease and protect the liver against toxins. Increasing research is being undertaken on the physiological effects, therapeutic properties and possible medical uses of milk thistle.

Research into the biological activity of silymarin and its possible medical uses has been conducted in many countries since the 1970s. Milk thistle has been reported to have protective effects on the liver and to greatly improve its function. It is typically used to treat liver cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis (liver inflammation), toxin-induced liver damage, and gallbladder disorders.

Reviews of the literature covering clinical studies of silymarin vary. A review using only studies with both double-blind and placebo protocols concluded that milk thistle and its derivatives "does not seem to significantly influence the course of patients with alcoholic and/or hepatitis B or C liver diseases".

A different review of the literature performed for the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services found that while there is strong evidence of legitimate medical benefits, the studies done to date are of uneven design and quality that no firm conclusions about degrees of effectiveness for specific conditions or appropriate dosage can yet be made.

A review of studies of silymarin and liver disease which are available on the web shows an interesting pattern in that studies which tested low dosages of silymarin concluded that silymarin was ineffective[13], while studies which used significantly larger doses concluded that silymarin was biologically active and had therapeutic effects.

Beside benefits for liver disease, other unproven treatment claims include:

Used as a post (oral steroid) cycle therapy for body builders and/or in the hopes of reducing or eliminating liver damage

Lowering cholesterol levels

Reducing insulin resistance in people with type 2 diabetes who also have cirrhosis

Reducing the growth of cancer cells in breast, cervical, and prostate cancers.

Used in many products claiming to reduce the effects of a hangover

Used by individuals withdrawing from opiates, especially during the Acute Withdrawal Stage.

Reducing liver damaging effects of chemotherapeutic drugs

Clinical study has shown that liver function tests can be improved in active hepatitis patients.

Muira Puma (Ptychopetalum)

Ptychopetalum is a genus of two species of flowering plants in the family Olacaceae, native to the Amazon rainforest. The indigenous name is Muira Puama which translates as "potency wood". The species are shrubs or small trees growing to about 14 feet in height belonging to the Olacaceae family and found in Brazil.

All parts have been used, but it's usually the bark and root used the most. It contains long-chain fatty acids, plant sterols, coumarin, lupeol, and the alkaloid muirapuamine.

The root and bark are used for a variety of ailments by indigenous peoples in the Rio Negro area of South America, but the effectiveness of Muira Puama preparations are unproven.

For its tonic effect, one of the traditional remedies is to gently simmer 1 teaspoon of root and/or bark in one cup of water for 15 minutes and take 1/2 to 1 cup daily.

There is evidence that Muira Puama is anxiogenic in rodents (causes anxiety), which would be consistent with a stimulant effect, without affecting coordination. However, rather than increasing the activity of excitatory NT, it decreases the activity of an inhibitory transmitter, GABAA.

In Brazilian herbal medicine, muira puama still is a highly-regarded sexual stimulant with a reputation as a powerful aphrodisiac. It has been in the Brazilian Pharmacopoeia since the 1950s.

It is used as a neuromuscular tonic for weakness and paralysis, dyspepsia, menstrual disturbances, chronic rheumatism (applied topically), sexual impotency, grippe, and central nervous system disorders.

It is still listed in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia (a noted herbal medicine source from the British Herbal Medicine Association), recommended for the treatment of dysentery and impotence.

In Germany, muira puama is employed as a central nervous system tonic, for hookworms, menstrual disturbances, and rheumatism.

Muira puama has been gaining in popularity in the United States, where herbalists and health care practitioners are using it for impotence, depression, menstrual cramps and PMS, nerve pain, and central nervous system disorders.

N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC)

Acetylcysteine, also known as N-acetylcysteine or N-acetyl-L-cysteine (abbreviated NAC), is a pharmaceutical drug and nutritional supplement used primarily as a mucolytic agent and in the management of paracetamol (acetaminophen) overdose. Other uses include sulfate repletion in conditions, such as autism, where cysteine and related sulfur amino acids may be depleted.

Cysteine is an amino acid that can be found throughout the body. N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC), a modified form of cysteine, has been shown to increase levels of the antioxidant glutathione. Antioxidants such as glutathione can reduce cell damage, speed recovery from injury and aid muscle growth.

NAC is a popular supplement with a wide variety of uses. Because it reduces muscle damage and strengthens the immune system, NAC is used by endurance athletes such as long-distance runners, cyclists and triathletes. Many athletes include NAC in their diet when they are in the early stages of recovering from an injury.

The anabolic effect of NAC on muscle tissue also makes it popular with athletes wanting to gain lean muscle size and strength, including body builders, rugby players, and sprinters.

Saw Palmetto (SERENOA REPENS)

Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens, Sabal serrulata) is used popularly in Europe for symptoms associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of the prostate). Although not considered standard of care in the United States, it is the most popular herbal treatment for this condition. Saw palmetto is often combined with nettle extract.

Multiple mechanisms of action have been proposed, and saw palmetto appears to possess 5-?-reductase inhibitory activity (thereby preventing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone). Hormonal/estrogenic effects have also been reported, as well as direct inhibitory effects on androgen receptors and anti-inflammatory properties.

Tribulus Terrestris

Tribulus terrestris is one of the most recent herbal supplements claimed to have ergogenic (muscle building) effect, achieved by 'naturally' boosting testosterone levels. Tribulus terrestris (aka puncture weed/vine or caltrops) grows mainly in sandy soil and has a fruit encased in a sharp, spiny burr. The extract from the fruit has been used in herbal medicine as a diuretic, and for colic pains, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol). But the reason we're interested in it is becuase it's also been reputed to increase testosterone levels in animals.

The active agent in Tribulus is thought to be protodioscin, a precursor to dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), which is a precursor to testosterone. Tribulus is also believed to indirectly affect testosterone levels by stimulating the release of leutinizing hormone (LH), which stimulates the natural production of testosterone.

Does Tribulus Terrestris Work? I was only able to find two published studies on the effects of Tribulus terrestris supplementation in humans.

In the first study looked at the effects of Tribulus terrestris supplementation during training on body composition and performance. Fifteen resistance-trained males ingested either 3.21mg per kilogram of bodyweight of either a placebo or Tribulus terrestris for eight weeks during a standardized resistance-training program. Results showed Tribulus terrestris supplementation had no significant effects on changes in mood states, total body weight, percent body fat, or gains in
bench press or leg press. Although LH and testosterone levels were not assessed in this study, results indicated that Tribulus terrestris supplementation of approximately 250mg a day during resistance training had no significant effects.

In the first phase of another study 10 subjects then ingested a placebo or a supplement containing 100mg androstenedione, 50mg DHEA, 250mg Tribulus terrestris, 195mg Chrysin, 100mg Indole-3-carbinol, and 180mg Saw palmetto. Blood samples were obtained every hour for six hours, with results showing significantly increased androstenedione levels. However, no significant differences were between the placebo and anabolic precursor trials in LH, follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), estradiol, free testosterone, or total testosterone levels. These findings indicate that although anabolic precursors may
increase androstenedione levels, they have no significant effect on other androgenic or estrogenic hormones.

In the second phase of the same study, 20 untrained male subjects participated in a 3-day per week resistance training program for 8 weeks. The subjects took either a placebo or a supplement containing 300mg androstenedione, 150mg DHEA, 750mg Tribulus terrestris, 625mg Chrysin, 300mg Indole-3-carbinol, and 540mg Saw palmetto every day during weeks 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8. Results revealed that Saw palmetto supplementation during training increased fasting androstenedione, estradiol, and estrone levels while decreasing high-density lipoproteins levels. No significant differences were observed in LH, FSH, total testosterone, free testosterone, or estriol levels. There were also no significant differences observed in body composition, muscle fiber diameter, or gains in 1RM strength. These findings suggest Tribulus terrestris at 750mg per day with other anabolic precursors does not significantly affect body composition or training adaptations.

So despite claims, there's no current data supporting the ergogenic value of Tribulus terrestris for resistance-trained athletes.

Ba-BAM!
