Anabolic, anti-catabolic, anti-proteolytic, protein-sparing... These are terms that describe the state of protein affairs in muscle. The bodybuilding community likes to define anabolic compounds as those which increase amino acid shuttling into muscle and increase protein synthesis. Likewise, anti-catabolic, or antiproteolytic (the more specifically correct term) compounds are defined as those which decrease amino acid shuttling out of muscle (also called protein-sparing). Irrespective of whether amino acids are being gained within muscle due to an increase in the influx of amino acids and enhanced protein synthesis, or due to the conservation of amino acids already within muscle, or both, the resulting intramuscular environment is anabolic. This is a really good thing for bodybuilders.
Ajuga turkestanica and myostatin
A study on the anabolic effects of Ajuga turkestanica was published in 2012 in Chinese Medicine. Researchers were working for PoliNat, a Spanish company that sells plant-based bioactive extracts – including an extract from Ajuga turkestanica. The researchers observed that at a concentration of 1 micromole Ajuga turkestanica ecdysteroids the muscle cells started to make less myostatin. The researchers repeated the experiment and exposed the muscle cells this time to 1 micromole methandienone – a powerful anabolic. And, lo and behold – the ecdysteroids turned out to be more effect myostatin inhibitors than the anabolic.
The potential for any substance to increase protein synthesis in muscle by-passing secondary effects common with steroid synthetic drugs are attractive approaches for athletes everywhere. The aim of their study was to initially screen a proprietary Ajuga turkestanica extract (ATE), rich in ecdysteroids for early signs of efficacy (increase/ protection of muscle mass) and safety (lack of androgenic activity). Testosterone and other androgenic steroid drugs have been used in the past to increase or maintain muscle mass. These drugs act via the androgen receptors and as such have shown significant side effects that must be carefully evaluated before initiating any therapy. The anabolic effect of ecdysteroids is connected with the acceleration of translocation processes instead of the induction of new RNA synthesis. Ecdysteroids are not likely to act as the classical steroids, via cytoplasmic receptor and regulation of gene transcriptional activity. Ecdysteroids display significant structural differences from anabolic-androgenic steroid hormones, which may explain the different mechanisms of their anabolic action. These compounds are the three most prominent non-hormonal anabolic agents that have been in use by elite Russian athletes for nearly 40 years. The efficacy of these compounds have been shown over time to increase protein synthesis. There are so many premier multi-pathway strength and muscle-building compounds in SUPERDROL® that SUPERDROL® is literally a bodybuilding stack within itself!
The final Anabolic Agent in SUPERDROL® is another Hi-Tech original, [(3b,5a,6a,25R)-spirostan-3,6-diol] aka 25R, is a spirostanol saponin consisting of a hydrophilic sugar moiety linked to a hydrophobic steroid aglycone. [(3b,5a,6a,25R)-spirostan-3,6-diol] is structurally similar to many steroids. 25R is a naturally anabolic. It puts your body into an anabolic state, while simultaneously activating androgen receptors for growth. It is not quite a test booster, but an ingredient that significantly enhances the strength of a test booster or prohormone. [(3b,5a,6a,25R)-spirostan-3,6-diol] has a 33:1 anabolic/androgenic ratio. Russian scientists developed this compound for use by Russian Olympic athletes. 25R has been shown to increase size, strength, lean body mass, and block the catabolic effect that cortisol has on muscle tissue. [(3b,5a,6a,25R)-spirostan-3,6-diol] is so potent that users have reported significant strength increases in as little three days and added lean muscle mass in three weeks. This special anabolic agent is also one hell of an adaptogen, increasing your recovery speed which raises your endurance levels and recovery time to inhuman levels!
While other supplement companies are compressing a large amount of ignorance into the advertisements for their bodybuilding products, Hi-Tech is compressing a very large amount of potent, muscle-building compounds into its SUPERDROL® tablets. Having amazing ingredients does not matter if they do not get delivered into the bloodstream to be used. Therefore, Hi-Tech uses pharmaceutical tablet engineering with Cyclosome™ Technology. Hi-Tech is the only company in the Dietary Supplement industry utilizing this amazing, cutting-edge technology! The SUPERDROL® formulation contains the patented compounds 1- DHEA, 4-DHEA and Δ4-Androstene-3α-ol-17-one, which are combined with the powerful endogenous steroid hormone Androsterone. SUPERDROL® also contains Ajuga Turkestanica Extract that contains, Turkesterone, which is not an anabolic steroid, but old Russian studies showed Turkesterone to have a greater anabolic effect than Methandienone, a powerful anabolic hormone.
SUPERDROL® is the most anabolic substance on the market and has the ability to improve testosterone levels and has the ability to improve number of muscle fibers. This prohormone is able to stimulate dramatic strength and muscle mass gains while reducing recovery time between intense workouts. In addition to these advantages, SUPERDROL® does not convert into estrogen, which makes it a safe option even for those prone to estrogenic side effects like oily skin, acne, and gynecomastia. This also means athletes using SUPERDROL® don’t experience muscle loss, fat gain, and decreased strength that is commonly experienced by bodybuilders when aromatization happens. SUPERDROL® is well-known in bodybuilding communities as an excellent prohormone to add muscle mass and strength.
You may ask.... Aren't some or most of these prohormones going to be destroyed in the liver or gut before reaching the bloodstream? Normally the answer would be Yes, if you eat prohormones orally, most of the androgens will not make it into the bloodstream due to the fact that the sensitive molecules will be destroyed in our digestive track or by the liver. However, that was before the development of Hi-Tech's proprietary Cyclosome™ Technology described below. Hi-Tech is a leader in the Bodybuilding and Prohormone industry being one of the only companies that have brought many first to market hormone compounds. Researchers at Hi-Tech recently developed a proprietary process called Cyclosome™ Technology. This one-of-a-kind technology brought to you by the leaders in Prohormones involves the entrapment of hydrophobic prohormones and other Testosterone boosting compounds in the form of water-soluble Prohormone–cyclodextrin (CD) complex in liposomes has been investigated as a new strategy to combine the relative advantages of CD's and liposomes into one system, namely Prohormone-in-CD-in-liposome systems called Cyclosome's™. You can think of all this in terms of a ‘Trojan Horse,’ passing through the liver unharmed and intact. As opposed to being destroyed in the liver like all other hormonal products on the market, past and present. This new Cyclosome™ technology allows the ‘Trojan Horse’ to deliver prohormones and testosterone boosters to the systemic circulation by the intestinal lymphatic route, circumventing first-pass inactivation in the liver for the very first time. Almost all previous Oral capsules and tablets manufactured to increase testosterone — including Testosterone itself — are involved in the "first pass affect" which renders the active compounds virtually useless.
