Laxosterone is a brand name of 5a hydroxy laxogenin sold by a company called Bestcom. Bestcom is the actually manufacturer. They do not sell to the public, they only sell to supplement companies whom then make their own supplements and sell them to the end user.
Here, Bestcom trademarked the name Laxosterone. I am a firm believer is buying branded supplements. Supplements like Creapure, Advantra Z, Peak ATP, Cognizin, and LJ100. When you buy branded ingredients you can be sure that you are getting high quality products instead of cheap generic versions. Laxosterone is a brand of 5a alpha hydroxy laxogenin. I researched and found the company selling Laxosterone and I contacted them and asked them for a certificate of analysis on their product. Here is what they sent me.
As you can see in the certificate analysis above the amount of 5a alpah hydroxy laxogenin is around 92%.
As of August 1st 2019, this is the ONLY 100% Laxosterone product on the market. Click to buy below.
Laxogenin is NOT the same as 5a hydroxy laxogenin. Yes, they both come from the Smilax plant but both are completely different compounds. Do not confuse the two. You can read more about it here.
Additional Info On Laxogenin
There are different classes of shrubs, in which Smilax Sieboldii is one that belong to a climbing class. It is mainly grown in East Asia, South and North America. The young leaves have varieties of uses which ranges from food, while the subterranean parts of it are used for traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for the treatment of arthritis, tumors and lumbago. This shrub has drawn a lot of attentions in the research world because of its content of a natural steroidal sapogenin- 5a-hydroxy-laxogenin. Research has shown that 5a-hydroxy-laxogenin is a spirostanic analogue of brassinosteroid. It possesses an anabolic/androgenic activity that is very comparable to those of the most efficient anabolic substances, anavar. It is still without side effects of liver toxicity or the likelihood of testing positive for steroids.
5a-hydroxy-laxogenin which is a homolog of laxogenin is a natural steroid in most green plants. Earlier on, the two natural plant steroids were sold in the market but with time, the demand for 5α-Hydroxy laxogenin became higher by the consumers in the market than laxogenin. Researchers recorded that the former has a better anabolic effect on the body than the later though the mechanism needs further study. 5a hydroxyl laxogin is the trademark of 5α -Hydroxy laxogenin from BESTCOM. As a result of lesser content by pant in nature, a bioconversion method was introduced to obtain a highly purified 5α-Hydroxy Laxogenin from a natural plant material, whereas a new microencapsule 5α-Hydoxy laxogenin with a very good bioavailability was developed. Its usage was restricted by a surge of fake raw material since 2010. Different test has been conducted on the origin of 5α-Hydroxy Laxogenin from the market. Some of the contents are very low ranging from 20-55% while some are not even 5α-Hydroxy laxogenin.
A report from Russian research desk reveals that 5α -Hydroxyl laxogenin has the tendency to accelerate weight gain in rats by increasing the weight of some organs like liver, heart, kidneys, musculus tibiliasis anterior and also increasing the total amount of protein contents as well. The numerated changes above become much severe with the study substance giving to young animals. It has been shown that 5α-Hydroxy laxogenin can be used by the athletes as it enhances the strength for 3-5 days and that of muscle increase in 3-4 weeks. The mechanism of the muscle growth and accelerated repair is as a result of enhanced protein synthesis by over 200%. Further research on the molecule reveals that it can also be used to balance the cortisol response which is the backbone for the recovery and reduction of muscle wasting.
A research work on 5a Hydroxy laxogenin and 5α -Hydroxy laxogenin on athletic performance was conducted and showed below, at the intensive training period during the double-blind study of one hundred volunteered healthy male body builder for 4weeks. The volunteer for the test was divided into three different groups and was assigned to receive 5α-Hydroxy laxogenin, laxogenin and placebo (isomaitulose) on a daily basis respectively. The scheduled routine training for the subject includes barbell bench press; barbell bicep curls, and seated leg press at 65% maximum exercise, the upper arm circumference, bust, and thigh circumference on a weekly basis .The case study were not allowed to take a new supplement or drug, and their daily food were not changed suddenly while maintaining the intake of protein at a constant rate. The result from the research shows that placebo, 5a Hydroxy laxogenin administration had a significant effect on increase strength and endurance, broad arms, legs and shoulders. In conclusion it’s known that 5a Hydroxy laxogenin can enhance to have a stronger and healthier body.
