There is something wrong with designersteroid 6a-chloro-androst-4-en-17b-ol-3-one
When researchers from the FDA analyzed capsules that should contain the designer steroid 6a-chloro-androst-4-en-17b-ol-3-one, they found a different steroid. One that looks like 6a-chloro-androst-4-en-17b-ol-3-one, but has significantly less anabolic effect.
In the recent past, the researchers have detected 160 different types of steroids in 'supplements', write the researchers in their publication that will soon appear in Drug Testing & Analysis. They noticed a trend that designer steroids with a halogen in their chemical structure are becoming more popular. Halogens are elements such as chlorine, bromine, iodine or fluor.
The designer steroid 6a-chloro-androst-4-en-17b-ol-3-one, of which the researchers analyzed 62 capsules, was also a halogen steroid.
In 2013 we already wrote about 6-alpha-chloro-androst-4-en-17-beta-ol-3-one. We then mentioned that there is an analogue of this steroid that looks like it, but has significantly less anabolic effect: 6-beta-chloro-androst-4-en-17-beta-ol-3-one.
LA = anabolic effect in animal study; VP = androgenic side effects in animal study. The figures were obtained in experiments in which the researchers injected the professional animals with the active substances. We couldn't find oral studies. The figure below is from Julius Vida's Androgens And Anabolic Agents.
Look at that. The researchers found the barely active variant in the capsules. The researchers estimate that there is 36 milligrams of this substance in a capsule.
