Another brand new supp to hit the street in 2011, which, of course, means I can't find any info on it.

I will offer up that it contains Superdro and Halovar, both of which are methlyated compounds, so have your liver protection ready, and don't use this if you've had poor reaction to methylated compounds in the past. At 2 pills a day, you're getting 30mgs of Superdrol, and that's pretty close to the upper end.

I don't recommend this for beginners and I don't recommend using it for longer than 3 weeks, 4 at most if you're an experience user. Superdrol is damn string by itself, and stacking it with 50mg of Halovar will undoubtedly pack a punch.

You'll definitely want a good PCT if you're going to run this one.

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.

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.

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP)

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), also known as oxitriptan (INN), is a naturally-occurring amino acid and chemical precursor as well as metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan.

5-HTP is sold over-the-counter in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada as a dietary supplement for use as an antidepressant, appetite suppressant, and sleep aid. It's marketed in many European countries for the indication of major depression under trade names like Cincofarm, Levothym, Levotonine, Oxyfan, Telesol, Tript-OH, and Triptum.

Several double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of 5-HTP in the treatment of depression. The psychoactive action of 5-HTP is derived from its effect on the production of serotonin in central nervous system tissue.

6-Bromoandrostenedione

I've been confusing myself again.

There's the compound 6-Bromodione which binds to the aromatase enzyme making it unable to convert androgens to estrogen.

6-alpha-Bromodione is a fast acting competitive inhibitor of the aromatase enzyme. It works by binding to the aromatase enzyme to prevent it from aromatizing androgens. This is not a permanent binding and later acts to normalize aromatase (and thus estrogen levels) as hormone production returns to normal. It specifically targets aromatase and does not act as a central anti-androgen like some other post cycle products can. This means that your libido and mood will not be negatively affected.

6-beta-Bromodione works in a similar way but has an irreversible and permanent effect. This works well to mediate the excess aromatase that was produced while on cycle, while the alpha isomer works to normalize the natural levels. The goal is again to transition into normal production levels for all hormones affected by the anabolic cycle.

I found "6-bromoandrostenedione vs. 6 Bromodione" and says: "They are the same thing; I think it also goes by "6-bromolane. I would imagine that products containing 6-bromodione would be a mixture of alpha and beta, given the expense associated with separation. Also, 6-alpha-bromodione should convert into 6-alpha-bromo-testosterone, which should be a relatively potent anabolic steroid. So, if taken for PCT, it could actually be suppressive (like epistane, which is both an AI and suppressive steroid). Actually, I bet 6-alpha-bromodione would make a decent PH.

I think 4-HO-androstenedione has been researched more, but both could probably lower androstenedione production."

L-Alpha Glycerylphosphorylcholine (Alpha GPC)

L-Alpha Glycerylphosphorylcholine (aka Alpha GPC and choline alfoscerate) is a natural choline compound found in the brain and in milk. It is also a parasympathomimetic acetylcholine precursor which may have potential for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease and is used as a nootropic dietary supplement to enhance memory and cognition.

Alpha GPC delivers choline to the brain across the blood-brain barrier and is a biosynthetic precursor of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter. Alpha GPC is derived from highly purified soy lecithin.

In Europe, Alpha-GPC is a prescription medication for the treatment of Alzheimer?s disease. It is available in two forms; one is taken by mouth, and the other is given as a shot. In the United States, Alpha-GPC is only available as a dietary supplement, mostly in products promoted to improve memory.

Other uses for alpha-GPC include treatment of various kinds of dementia, stroke, and "mini-stroke". Alpha-GPC is also used for improving memory, thinking skills, and learning.

Alpha-GPC seems to increase a chemical in the brain called acetylcholine. This brain chemical is important for memory and learning functions.

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.

N-(2-(5-Methoxyindol-3-y)ethyl)acetamide

Here's yet another one I can't find anything on. When I do a search, the Google gods ask me if I'm looking for "N-(2-(5-Methoxyindol-3-ly)ethyl)acetamide". When I search for that, I find listings of companies that sell it, but nothing on what it really is or what it's supposed to do.

Is this an alternate chemical nomenclature for indole-3-carbinol?
