Anti-Estrogens: 6-OXO (TM) / Androstene-3,6,17-trione
This ingredient was brought to market in 2002 as the next revolution in Aromatase Inhibitors. In fact, this steroidal suicide aromatase inhibitor (AI) does work and it works really well. It does exactly as advertised, increasing testosterone and reducing estrogen. There are some drawbacks with this ingredient but it is a very good AI and seems to improve testosterone levels to a good degree. The only downside to this ingredient is the need to take excessive amounts to see results and that the increased testosterone doesn’t seem to result in more muscle. The recommendation is to take 600mg per day of this ingredient, making a $40 bottle good for only 10 days at this dose. It seems as though you can get away with 300mg and get about the same results though, and it is not uncommon for supplement companies to suggest that you take excessively high doses in order to get more money from you. Androstenetrione is often misclassified as an “anabolic” steroid. Although, this item is a steroid, it is not anabolic on its own and is only useful for boosting testosterone. Sadly, using this product may cause you to test positive for androstenedione or other anabolic steroids, so it is best avoided when drug tests are eminent. Androstene-3,6,17-trione has been the source of many controversial articles and is currently no longer available from its original manufacturer.
