11-OXO Powder 11-Ketotestosterone Prohormone Adrenosterone Raw
At its simplest, 11-Ketotestosterone or 11-oxo also known as adrenosterone, is a type of prohormone that is capable of promoting fat loss and stimulating the development of dry, lean muscle gains. Clinical tests also show that it can intensify the libido when cycled.
11-OXO is a true prohormone, converting to 11-ketotestosterone. It is typically used for its cortisol controlling effects, which can aid in fat loss (especially over the abs) and prevent muscle wasting during a dieting phase. 11-OXO is not commonly used for its strength and muscle building effects, because it does not have a very significant effect in these areas unless it is dosed high or stacked with other compounds. 11-OXO is great for stacking with methylated anabolics or prohormones because it will not put additonal stress on the liver.

11-OXO and Aging
But the thing is 11-oxo is gathering a lot of followers for another benefit that it flaunts. It is said that this compound can help stop aging and prevent its effects on the body, specifically muscle wasting.
The anti-aging benefit of this prohormone is seen through its ability to keep an enzyme called 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type1 reductase (11HSD1R) at bay.
11HSD1R basically converts cortisone into cortisol, a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal gland that is churned out when the body experiences a low concentration of blood-glucose or perhaps going through a lot of stress.
What’s even worse is cortisol not just promotes the storage of fat tissues, specifically in the chest and oblique areas, but also sets off a catabolic effect when its levels become really high. The latter is very prominent among older individuals that suffered both muscle wasting and loss of strength.
How do I use 11-oxo in a Cycle?
11-OXO will provide benefits of increased fat loss and muscle hardening ran on its own in doses ranging from 300mg to 500 mg orally and 180 mg applied topically everyday. 11-oxo can pass through the skin with the right carrier, thus is can be applied right on the mid section and chest. This results in a much lower dosage being needed since more of the hormone gets into the system when applied on the skin, as opposed to ingesting this non-methylated hormone and making it suffer the chemical inferno of gastric digestion. Since it does not have a Methyl group to protect it during digestion, Bodybuilders have found that much less Androst-4-ene-3,11,17trione(11-oxo) is lost in delivery when applied topically on the skin. This results in even less being needed (less than 180mg per day) when transdermal delivery is used, as opposed to the 300mg to 500mg needed to see noticeable effects when used oral.
