What You Should Know
AndroGro X by Muscle Gauge Nutrition appears to be a pro-hormone. We looked through several bodybuilding websites and researched the main ingredient in the formula and every bit of research leads to 1-Andro, a pro-hormone. If this product contains a pro-hormone it is illegal for use in athletic competition. Bodybuilders would like be banned from competition if urine or blood testing was required before competition. Pro-hormones raise testosterone levels, but the product description for AndroGro X claims it is a non-hormonal product. We can’t help thinking the scientific name for the main ingredient is somehow just very similar to 1-Andro.
List of Ingredients
1-Androstene-3b-Ol, 17-One and Acetyl L-Carnitine.
The main ingredient in AndroGro X is 1-Androstene-3b-Ol, 17-One, which is listed as a pro-hormone ideal for stacking with other bodybuilding supplements. It is designed to run in a 4 to 6 week cycle at 100 mg to 200 mg twice a day. The suggested dose, according to the product description, is up to 600 mg per day. At that dose, the dieter would need 5 to 6 bottles to complete one cycle. Potential side effects include lethargy and loss of sex drive. The supplement was popular in the early 2000s, but it fell off the map for a few years. Now, the supplement is back, but it is highly expensive, in most cases. The listing we found for AndroGro X stated a sales price of less than $20.
Dieters have no need to take pro-hormones. They will not increase metabolism or fat burn. The potential side effects are outrageous and there are few benefits. Bodybuilders tend to love the supplement and it is proven to increase muscle gains, though the lethargy is sometimes overwhelming meaning the bodybuilder needs to take more caffeine to work out and thus increases the risk for additional side effects.

We assume there is a place for pro-hormones on the market, but that place is not in competition, athletics or dieting. Pro-hormones are banned by most organized sports and they do not promote weight loss. We are shocked that Muscle Gauge Nutrition, a seemingly trustworthy supplement site, offers a pro-hormone for bodybuilding.
