Some interesting claims here. By making it available as a liquid AMS reports "Micronized for faster liquid blood plasma absorption; 98% pure actives for stronger results.

Now 1-Androsterone is a metabolite of DHEA, and while DHEA is a steroid precursor, it doesn't have a reputation as a very powerful one. So I'm a big skeptical of their "15 pounds of lean muscle in 30 days". While some strength and lean mass gains are possible, 1-Andro has a reputation of being pretty mild.

No conversion to estrogen, and non-methyl, so easy on the liver, this one is be used when stacked with a string compound.

If you run it by itself, you might see some incremental increases in strength and mass, and some loss of bodyfat, but any such will be pretty minimal.

1-Andro does have a rep for being hard on the hairline though, so keep that in mind.

1-Androstene-3b-ol,17-one (1-Androsterone)

1-Androstene-3b-ol, 17-one, (AKA 1-Androsterone and 1-DHEA) is a non-methylated pro-steroid that must convert to 1-androstenediol (1-AD), 1-androstenedione (original 1-AD) and/or 1-testosterone in order to be active.

1-Androsterone is a naturally occurring metabolite of DHEA. In the body, 1-Androsterone is converted to 1-Androstenediol and 1-Androstenedione. Both of these metabolites can then be converted to 1-Testosterone, which is where most of the effects come from. There is no conversion to estrogen.

1-Androsterone and its metabolites have relatively potent androgenic effects, therefore gyno is almost never an issue. However, because of the androgenic potency, this compound could pose a mild hair loss risk for those prone to male pattern baldness. Because this steroid is non-17aa there should be less concern about it negatively affecting the liver or cholesterol levels.

Moderate gains of lean muscle mass and strength can be expected, but users should not expect rapid increases in size or weight with this compound since extra-cellular and intra-cellular water retention are minimal. This makes the gains from this steroid fairly easy to maintain post cycle.

1-Androsterone will stack well with almost any compound. For more dramatic gains in size and strength it is recommended to stack this compound with an aromatizing steroid or possibly one of the progestational compounds listed elsewhere.

Hydroxypropyl Beta Cyclodextrin

Cyclodextrins are a family of compounds made up of sugar molecules bound together in a ring. Cyclodextrins are produced from starch by means of enzymatic conversion. They are used in food, pharmaceutical, drug delivery, and chemical industries, as well as agriculture and environmental engineering. Hydroxypropyl Beta Cyclodextrin is the chief active compound found in Procter and Gamble's deodorizing product "Febreze" under the brand name "Clenzaire".

Hydroxypropyl Beta Cyclodextrin is a prime candidate of all the chemically modified Cyclodextrins for incorporation into formulations used by humans and animals. HPBCD has the best balance of enhanced aqueous solubility, a wide range of drugs with which it forms stable complexes, and the most extensive collection of safety data in the technical literature with no adverse reactions reported. HPBCD is itself very soluble in water.

Basically used in solution to facilitate drug delivery.
