: : I found androstene info from some of the german studies on a page after an extensive search but had a power failure and never got the page and I haven't been able to figure out how I got back. It had about the closest thing to real data I've seen in awhile. The powerlifters used to snort the shit just before a lift. Using a placebo during practices, they've got data that supports a positive effect for the supp; but here's no report on statistical. This way they got a fast punch right away. The report mentioned that it not only irritated nasal passages but caused some degredataion of soft surface tissue in the nasal passages, and mentioned some concern about regular exposure over time. The typical application was either regular doses over time or just before an event; taking it just before bed's a new one, but it makes sense to encourage briefly and while relaxed muscle recovery and prevent catabolism.
: Number one: Find that fucking page again and tell me where it is.
: Number two: Snorting androstene before bed = bad idea. The patent mentions the profound psychostimulant
: effect of intranasal androstene which happens because of the proximity of the nasal mucosa to the brain.
: Alot of androstene absorbed this way makes its way directly into the brain and is metabolized to active androgens
: and imparts a stimulating effect on the CNS. I don't think this would be conducive to a good nights sleep.
When I replied I meant in my mind taking it orally , but since I was replying to Animal's post about nasal use, I guess I should have been more clear. Some of the material specifically describes the behaviors resulting from the stimulation effect (like the statements from powerlifters) and even suggested the actual athletic effect may be due more to the stimulation than to increase in test.
I'll let you know if I ever wind down the long and veiny road to that page again.
