WHAT IS 3B-HYDROXY-1,4-ANDROSTADIEN-17-ONE UNDECANOATE?
3b-hydroxy-1,4-androstadien-17-one undecanoate is a prohormone sold by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals under the name Equibolin. It can also be referred to as 1,4-Andro or 1,4-DHEA. This prohormone converts to boldione and boldiol, these two both convert directly to boldenone. Boldenone has a long history as a performance enhancing compound, it is also referred to as equipoise.
IS EQUIBOLIN A STEROID?
Equibolin is steroidal in structure, however it is not directly active on the androgen receptor like anabolic steroids. Once it is ingested it undergoes two enzymatic conversions in your liver. This changes the compound into boldenone.
IS EQUIBOLIN LEGAL?
Equibolin is legal and sold over the counter in the US as a nutritional supplement. The metabolites boldiol, boldione, and boldenone are not legal for OTC purchase in the United States.
IS EQUIBOLIN GOOD FOR BODYBUILDING?
Yes, equibolin is a sought after compound for bodybuilding muscle gains. It is also commonly used by endurance athletes as some metabolites may stimulate erythropoietin. It is an excellent choice for building muscle tissue during bulking cycles.
DOES HI TECH EQUIBOLIN WORK?
Yes, there is research showing the DHEA isomers do in fact convert to targeted compounds after oral ingestion. 1,4-Andro is absorbed and processed by the liver into boldenone. Boldenone is an excellent muscle builder and endurance enhancer.
3B-HYDROXY-1,4-ANDROSTADIEN-17-ONE UNDECANOATE DOSAGE
3b-hydroxy-1,4-androstadien-17-one is recommended by manufacturers to be taken at 150mg per day and not to exceed 300mg per day. Most experienced users will report a minimum dose of 300mg which would be 4 tablets per day.
DO I NEED CYCLE SUPPORT WHILE TAKING EQUIBOLIN?
Equibolin is a precursor to boldenone, a very popular muscle building hormone. Since you can experience similar side effects, it is recommended to use cycle support while cycling this prohormone.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I TAKE DURING MY CYCLE?
It is recommended to take a testosterone base with any prohormone or SARM cycle. 4-Andro products are typically used as the testosterone base. Below is a list of 4-andro products:
- Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals Sustanon 250
- Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals Androdiol
- Blackstone Labs Brutal 4ce
- Ironmag Labs 4-Andro Cream
DO I NEED PCT FOR EQUIBOLIN?
As mentioned earlier Equibolin is a precursor to boldenone, boldenone can shut down natural production. PCT is highly recommended to restore natural hormone levels after your cycle. The products listed below can be used for PCT:
- PCT Gains Stack: Laxogenin, Tribesterone, and Arimiplex
- Genome Project NolvaBomb
- Super Labz Estrozine
- Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals Arimiplex
- Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals Arimistane
- 5% Nutrition Post Gear
HOW LONG SHOULD MY EQUIBOLIN CYCLE BE?
A typical cycle lasts 6-12 weeks. As mentioned above it is important to run cycle support for the entire duration of the cycle. Then immediately after, a PCT should be run for 4-6 weeks.
1,4- ANDRO SIDE EFFECTS?
1,4-Andro may produce side effects. Equibolin converts to the hormone boldenone so it can produce similar side effects to this.
HOW LONG DOES 1 4 DHEA STAY IN YOUR SYSTEM?
1,4-DHEA does not have any data on half life or detection times. Standard boldenone once in the bloodstream has a half life of about 14 days. However, the esterified molecules like the one in Equibolin may last months.
