4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1, 4-diene-3-17b-diol ???
Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to find a listing of the amount of each compound, nor can I find a recommended dosage. All teh retail sites seem to contain pretty much the same version of product description, which I take to be some sort of canned company write-up.
The company literature says:
'eMass 3X is an anabolic compound with 3 main components, halodrol (4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1, 4-diene-3-17b-diol),13-ethyl-3-methoxy-gona-2,5(10)-dien-17-one, and Superdrol (2a,17a-dimethyl-17B-Hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one).'
Now I hit Internets and according to my research, is Halovar, not Halodrol.
The only difference being 4-diene-3 versus 4-diene-3b. Unfortunately I'm not a biochemist, so I don't really know what that means, but if you're looking at this sup, keep this info in mund and do your research.
This seems to be a pretty new supp, since I don't see anything mentioned about it much before Novemebr 2010. I've seen some online retailers stating this is a Rage V8 clone, but haven't verified that. There's also a reference in the company write-up to something called SuperNova H-4:
'The first structural compound behind SuperNova H-4 is 4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1, 4-diene-3-17b-diol. SuperNova H-4 exhibits an extremely high anabolic to androgenic ratio translating into hard and consistent muscle gains with NO aromatization.' So did eMass 3x used to be Supernove H4? Dunno....
Here's the whoe deal if you're interested:
eMass 3X is an anabolic compound with 3 main components, halodrol (4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1, 4-diene-3-17b-diol),13-ethyl-3-methoxy-gona-2,5(10)-dien-17-one, and Superdrol (2a,17a-dimethyl-17B-Hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one).
The first structural compound behind SuperNova H-4 is 4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1, 4-diene-3-17b-diol. SuperNova H-4 exhibits an extremely high anabolic to androgenic ratio translating into hard and consistent muscle gains with NO aromatization. These gains are notably extremely dry and lean in nature, making this product a favorite for the pre-contest athlete, or as an anabolic adjunct to any mass stack. Users realize a solid, consistent accumulation of quality musculature for an extended period of time.
The second structural component of eMass 3X is 13-ethyl-3-methoxy-gona-2,5(10)-diene-17-one. It’s strong and conversion of the target hormone is very high. This compound is a progestin, as such it will not aromatize. It also will not convert to DHT. The chemical structure is shown to increase overall muscle composition, strength and libido. Because it reduces 5-alpha you’ll notice incredible hardening effects to compliment your size gains.
As a progestin, 13-ethyl-3-methoxy-gona-2,5(10)-diene-17-one is structurally related to the so-called abortion pill RU-486 and as such acts as an "anti-progesterone". Yes, this means decreased estrogen-like effects and an increase in libido. It is not a 17-alkylated analog thus having very low potential for liver toxicity. Progestins do not aromatize to estrogens and being a 5-alpha-reduced analog prevents conversion to DHT. It is important to remember that being 5-alpha-reduced also means it is related to DHT. 5-alpha reduced means good high quality hardening effects. Naturally the lack of estrogenic activity translates into low water retention and solid gains.
The third compound in eMass 3X is Superdrol(2a,17a-dimethyl-17B-Hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one). Because it's 5a-reduced and a-ring alkylated, the compound will not aromatize into estrogen. This has the favorable eff
eMass 3x Ingredients
13-ethyl-3-methoxy-gona-2,5(10)diene-17-one (Max LMG)Trade names include Max LMG, Tren, Trena, AKA Methoxygonadiene
Common dosage: 60-120mg daily
Common cycle length: 4-6 weeks
Half-Life:Long (48-72 hours)
Not a 17aa steroid so liver toxicity is not as harsh as with 17aa steorids, however the ethyl group on C-18 may make it slightly more toxic than a non-ethylated steroid (while increasing its oral bio-availability). Max LMG is progestin designed to give solid gains in muscle mass with low water retention. The progestational activity of methoxygonadiene (once it is converted to its active metabolites) is considered to be slightly stronger than nandrolone. This means muscle building with Max LMG in your cycle gives you higher quality hardening effects. Since it acts as anti-progesterone, there are decreased negative effects of extra estrogen and increased libido.
It is legal because it is a progestin, like trenbolone, nandrolone, methyltrienolone and Methyl-Dien. As a progestin, Max LMG is structurally related to the pill RU-486 and as such acts as an "anti-progesterone". This results in decreased estrogen-like effects and an increase in libido.
Research suggests that Max LMG has a half-life of about 6 hours, though it appears that it is closer to 10 hours based upon plasma levels maintained in test subjects. It is not a 17-alkylated analog and has a low potential for liver toxicity.
Most users report good results at a dosage of 75mg a day.
Some comments from users:
"As stated, appears to be an all out bulker. Great for size and strength, but notorious for bloat and the potential for gyno. I've also read that it kills libido pretty quickly. Some of the makers claimed that the libido would remain fine if one didn't use too large of daily doses though. I remember seeing people getting decent gains from 40mg - 50mg (depending on the product). It looks like most guys go up to 75mg though."
"Would be my favorite if it didn't make my nips start burning by the end of week two. Rapid weight gain on it plus the fact its not methyl are pluses. Just keep in mind i've seen many complain about it easily aggrevating gyno."
In the stomach acid, the C-3 methoxy group is rapidly cleaved off and the double bond on the A ring at C-2 is lost. At this point, a 3-oxo is formed and a metabolite known as 13b-ethyl-nor-androstenedione is created, which is chemically similar to norbolethone, and probably where this compound gets most of its effects.
13b-ethyl-nor-androstenedione is about equal to testosterone in anabolic potency, yet less androgenic. This would make this compound fairly light on the hairline with minimal chance of acne or other androgenic side-effects.
With low androgenic activity, this compound may negatively affect the libido and erectile function. The lack of androgenic potency and progestational effects make this compound likely to cause gyno symptoms. Users could stack this compound with testosterone or one of its non-aromatizing metabolites to preserve DHT levels and possibly prevent these side-effects.
Users experience rapid weight gain from this compound partly due to subcutaneous water retention from the progestational activity. Therefore the overall gains from this compound may lead to a bloated appearance. Because of the progestational effects, users should avoid stacking this compound with other gyno aggravating compounds. Max LMG can aromatize to estrogen in small amounts, however not to any significant degree, therefore an aromatase inhibitor would provide little protection against this compound's side-effects.
Max LMG immediately converts in the stomach into a 13b alkylated compound (13b ethyl nor androstenedione) and then makes it all the way to the liver because it is ethylated to survive first pass, and is converted into 13b ethyl nor testosterone, a steroid similar to norbolethone aka the clear.
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.
