Androstanarsole

Please note that this post was an ‘April Fools’, and is not to be taken seriously.

Structural Image:
arsole

Nomenclature:
17β-Hydroxy-17α-methyl-5α-androstano[3,2-c]arsole, or
17b-Hydroxy-17a-methyl-5a-androstano[3,2-c]arsole

Synonyms:
Metandrostanarsole
Methandrostanarsole
17a-methyl-5a-androstan-arsole

Structure:
Androstanarsole bears a strong structural resemblance to other heterocyclic steroids like stanozolol and furazabol, but instead of a furazan or pyrazole ring, this steroid has an arsole heterocyclic ring fused to carbons 2 and 3. Instead of the nitrogen heteroatoms seen in ‘winstrol’ and ‘furaza’, this steroid has an arsenic atom in the heterocyclic ring.

History:
Unlike most commercially available steroids, this one did not feature in Julius Vida’s 1969 publication “Androgens and Anabolic Agents”, and does not appear to have been experimentally synthesized by any steroid research labs of the time, hence the anabolic and androgenic activity is unknown.
Androstanarsole was released as a dietary supplement in April 2013 by The Right ‘Onourable Lord Lucan Labs.
TROLL LABSAdministration:
This product has been formulated as a suppository, for the rectal route of administration. The rectum has an abundance of blood vessels, causing a rapid uptake of the steroid molecule through the mucous membrane into the blood stream. Rectally administered, androstanarsole has a higher bioavailability and faster onset than similar oral products, and avoids the “first-pass effect” of the liver.

Warning: Androstanarsole capsules may contain metal fragments and large shards of glass.
