Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals 1-Testosterone
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals PRO IGF-1
1-Testosterone by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals is based upon a naturally occurring metabolite for many animals including man that has properties far different from standard testosterone in the body. 1-Testosterone is more of a mild hormone that will give you cleaner gains and dramatic strength increases. There are three prohormones to this compound:1-androstenedione, 1-androstenediol and 1-Androsterone aka 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one. Of the three, only 1-androsterone is still available on the U.S. market, and this is what Hi-Tech manufactures using its proprietary Cyclosome Delivery system for increased bioavailability.
In a recent study released in the Journal of Applied Physiology, the oral prohormone 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one which converts in the liver to 1-Testosterone was as potent milligram-for-milligram to Testosterone Enanthate, the gold standard for Testosterone products. Very few dietary supplements have been subjected to a clinical study. However, the active prohormone 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one was the subject of a clinical study at the West Texas A&M University, the California Baptist University and the University of Texas at Austin.
The results showed 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one to be significantly more powerful than it would appear structurally. The 9 males gained an average lean mass of 10.4 lbs and an increase in strength of 92.2 lbs in total load on bench/squat/deadlift. These are significant gains from a prohormone. The researchers concluded that the prohormone supplement contributed to robust improvements in muscle mass and strength in resistance trained. Although repeated studies are necessary to substantiate the efficacy of any compound, it’s safe to say that 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one definitely packs a punch.
1-Testosterone would give you clean gains that are very dry and lean in nature. This means you won’t get a lot of bloat or estrogen activity with this prohormone. The lack of estrogen actually causes most people to stack this steroid with 4-andro or another “wet” compound. This helps potentiate the gains and increase the “comfort” of the cycle. 1-Testosterone will help give you clean gains that are very sustainable and help your strength go through the roof .
1-Testosterone has a structure similar to testosterone but the double bond is in a different place. 1-Testosterone is a 1,2-double bond instead of a 4,5-double bond in its A ring. This slight modification means that the molecule is subject to different metabolism than standard testosterone. It cannot be converted to estrogen via aromatase nor can it be turned into DHT. This makes it a very stable molecule and resists most traditional routes of metabolism. A 2006 study determined that 1-testosterone has a high androgenic and anabolic potency even without being metabolized. 1-testosterone binds in a manner that is highly selective to the androgen receptor (AR) and has a high potency to stimulate AR-dependent transactivation. 1-Testosterone has an anabolic to androgenic ratio of 200/100, which is superior to testosterone!
With 1-Testosterone, many users report a hardening effect and an increase in vascularity. 1-Testosterone appears to be best used for size gains, although it provides the user with incredible strength gains as well. 1-Testosterone is considered a “dry” compound which can be used during cutting phases yet because of its strength is can also be useful during a bulking phase.
With its favorable anabolic to androgenic ratio, the androgenic side effects are not too high with this compound in comparison to other steroids like testosterone. 1-Testosterone with its orally active prohormone 1-androstene-3b-ol-17-one is still legally available and converts to 1-testosterone in a two step process. Only Hi-Tech has the exact same dose as studied in the Texas/California study that has been compared to Testosterone Enanthate, the gold standard for Testosterone products!

Bodybuilders, fitness enthusiasts, and athletes pay attention. The muscle-building breakthrough of the 21st century is here and the results being achieved by 1-Testosterone has been phenomenal. 1-Testosterone works to create the perfect anabolic environment for unbelievable gains in lean muscle mass and strength that will not disappear when your cycle is completed!

The so-called growth factors in whey peptides, growth hormone (GH) and the insulin-like growth factors (IGFs), are not mutually exclusive in terms of their effects. It is well documented that the influence of growth hormone on the proliferation of new cells in the body occurs primarily through what is known as the GH/IGF axis wherein the presence of GH triggers and enhances the many effects of the IGFs. IGF-1, or insulinlike growth factor-1, has also found favor among athletes for the same reasons that its better-known relative human growth hormone has: it is believed to make an athlete bigger, faster and stronger. It may boost muscle, reduce fat and improve endurance.
IGF-1 is made in response to growth hormone and is needed for growth hormone to have its effects on muscles and other tissues. Growth hormone, synthesized in the pituitary gland, travels to the liver, which then responds by producing IGF-1. IGF-1 consists of 70 amino acids in a single chain with three intramolecular disulfide bridges. Insulin-like growth factor type 1—commonly known as IGF-1—is a hormone produced naturally in the liver and involved in the human body's growth and development. IGF-1 is at its highest level in the body during childhood and adolescence.
The most important factor to consider is IGF-1's ability to achieve hyperplasia. When you use performance enhancing drugs like steroids, they will help the body through hypertrophy, which means you are increasing the size of the existing muscle cells. On the other hand, IGF-1 will cause hyperplasia, which means you are actually increasing the number of cells in the muscle tissue. These new cells can be utilized through further training, and use of steroids, to make bigger muscles. Essentially, you will have the ability to achieve more muscle density and size at the genetic level by using IGF-1.
Why is this IGF-1 important for a bodybuilder or athlete?
Helps regulate fat for use as energy, resulting in fat loss.
Contributes to anti aging. As we get older, IGF-1 production slows down and this results in cell reduction. Low levels of IGF-1 are linked to heart failure, lower brain cell regulation and neuron function. Not to mention muscle tissue breakdown.
Helps to increase nutrient shuttling (protein synthesis).
Increases regenerative functions of nerve tissues.
Boosts the ability to cause hyperplasia in muscle cells resulting in fuller muscle tissue.
Why IGF-1 and not GH? Growth hormone actually is a precursor to IGF-1. Growth hormone does not directly cause muscle growth, but indirectly causes muscle growth by signaling the release of IGF-1. Unlike growth hormone studies suggest that IGF-1 is stable and can be absorbed in the GI tract by neonates. Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals takes a great invention (IGF-1 peptide derived from whey) and makes it a superior product (Somaphen®). Our proprietary in-house Liposomal Delivery (LD) system is an applied coating which allows IGF-1 to readily dissolve in liquids and ensures the IGF-1 will bypass digestion; will be transported through the bowel wall; will circulate throughout the body; will reach the organs and cells; and remain bioavailable at the cellular level. Liposomal Delivery makes IGF-1 (and other hormones and nutrients) up to 1,500 % more bioavailable. Without Liposomal Delivery, IGF-1 loses most of its effectiveness. The Liposomal Delivery Difference means that IGF-1 products from Hi-Tech do what they say.
