View Full Version : Formestane?
...also known as 4-Hydroxyandrostenedione also known as 4-OHA.
Whaddaya guys know about this supplement? It's advertised in products like "Estro Xtreme" which claims to be more potent than 6-OXO. I'm interested in knowing things like long-term effects, etc.

I dunno. I don't know the long term effects of superdrol, though one can assume they won't be good.
Formadrol, which I think contains this, is pretty popular, I do believe. I haven't kept up with the new stuff all that much.
I guess what I really want to know is -- what are the harmful effects of taking something that helps shut down your body's natural production of estrogen?
Formestane is advertised as being able to prevent the production of estrogen by "irreversibly binding and inactivating the aromatase enzyme" which thus prevents the "conversion of androgens to estradiol and estrone." This is known as "suicide aromatase inhibitor."
It also says that Formestane "decreases the receptor counts for both estrogen and progesterone." So basically, there are 2 major estrogen "shutdown events."
This is all said on a flyer I got for Estro Xtreme. A product like this seems tempting, but as I questioned before, can completely shutting down estrogen production in our bodies be harmful? And does this product tax any organs in the process?

I just searched a bunch of studies. Its used on women with breast cancer and post-menopausal woman. In the form of an injectible it is highly effective. As an oral tablet, the effect are much less. So, unless your going to be injecting the stuff, you may not want to waste your money.
