Does 17-HD work?

September 13th, 2007 by Paul Johnson

Awhile back someone gave me a few packets of some 17-HD from Vyotech Nutritionals. Is this supplement a steroid like supplement or just junk?

What does 17-HD contain

It contains a few herbal supplements(junk), but the main active ingredient behind the supplement is what they call 17-halo methyl-dianadrone. At first look of the name of the compount, it gives the impression of a halo based steroid, like halotestin or halodrol.

Is it a steroid/pro-hormone?

Despite the name of the compound, they market the product as a testosterone booster. To find out if this supplement works you would have to find out more about dianadrone. There is no results for dianadrone, methyl-dianadrone, or halo-methyl dianadrone in pubmed as far as studies. I couldn’t find any any information about this compound with real research studies, anywhere else either. It is nothing, but a fake name branded by this company. I wouldn't trust the studies Vyotech did, as obviously they will be biased. 17-HD looks like nothing but a junk supplement, full of unproven herbs.

What do other bodybuilders report?

Except for a few who probably report placebo gains, the vast majority notice nothing.

    Complete waste of money.. Made the mistake of buying three of the 30 pill bottles, they don’t do anything for you, at all.. Explosive energy, my assticles! People who think this stuff works should also try eating a tube of vyotechs ab cream to get those ripped abdominal areas they’re looking for. Ha.. Ha…

    Yeah i have used it too…..i didn’t feel anything from it at all. I also have used Anabolic 7 wich is also made by Vyo Tech. I lost half a percent of body fat in the first 4 days of using it without any change in diet or exercise routine, but after that i didn’t see any change in body composition from it’s use alone. Now I’m thinking of using Permadrol by Wesley-Adams, but im not sure if it works. I can’t find enough information on it. All i know is that it was made to be a non-prescription alternative to testosterone replacement therapy for men that have naturaly lower test levels, and that it’s now being sold as a safe alternative to steroids for athletes. It’s supposed to work the same way as human chorionic gonadotropin or (HCG) in increasing test levels. I havn’t found any postings or threads on how it has worked for other people nor an ingredients list for this supplement.
