Super DMZ Rx 4.0
Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 Review
What Is Super-DMZ?
“Super-DMZ Rx 4.0™ is the most potent prohormone product on the market. As with our previous versions of Super-DMZ Rx™, version 4.0 is a true powerhouse!”
That’s a pretty bold claim by IronMag Labs, the makers of Super-DMZ. Before we get in to the hows, whys, and whens of Super-DMZ, we should explain some background on steroids, prohormones, SARMS, and everything in between!
This class of drugs were first made in the 1930s and are used in medicine to treat various types of leukemia, wasting syndrome, HIV, impotence, and various types of hormone deficiencies. Today it’s common knowledge that many pro athletes use steroids to help build muscle, improve recovery, and increase power. Bodybuilders are not the only ones using steroids, as we’ve seen athletes using steroids in baseball, football, boxing, wrestling, CrossFit, and pretty much any competitive sport in existence. Drug-testing methods have been ineffective at preventing their use as athletes have become more and more sophisticated at evading detection.
In 1996, prohormones were brought to the supplement industry by Patrick “The Chemist” Arnold with his androstenedione and androstenediol compounds. When you took either of these substances, your liver converted them into active testosterone! In 1998, baseball legend Mark McGwire set the single-season home runs record and attributed his recent gains in size and power to the use of androstenedione. Users taking prohormones weren’t technically taking testosterone; they were taking something that turned into test after they swallowed it. Due to a legal loophole in the FDA’s supplement legislation, androstenedione and androstenediol were perfectly legal to be sold as dietary supplements. This revolutionized the supplement industry as bodybuilders and other athletes finally had a perfectly legal way to increase testosterone without taking steroids, HCG, clomid, or any other drugs.
Steroid Derivatives, Esterfication & Methylation
It wasn’t long before many supplement companies found other derivatives or “chemical cousins” of the first prohormones that came out originally. These derivatives converted in the body to other steroids such as Deca-Durabolin, trenbolone, Masteron, Primobolan, and Equipoise, to name a few. Other innovative companies started to attach chemical compounds to the prohormones that would enhance the activity in the body or extend their half-life, making them last longer. One such method is called “esterification,” and it’s used in the pharmaceutical industry to time-release the steroids. The most popular esterified steroid is Deca-Durabolin, which is one of the most popular steroids of all time. Methylation is a similar chemical alteration that increases the half-life of a drug or prohormone and allows it to exert its effects for a longer period of time. The most popular methylated steroid of all time is Dianabol.
Steroids that are on banned substance lists are off-limits to athletes. But what if you created a steroid that wasn’t on the list? Well, it was that thinking that caused crafty steroid experts to begin manufacturing old steroids that were no longer in commercial production (thus not on the banned list) or chemically create new steroids that weren’t on the banned list, making them undetectable. Many steroid tests only looked for the exact molecular structure of commercially available steroids. By changing the chemical structure slightly, the sports world saw thousands of athletes taking these new “designer steroids” and passing drug tests with ease.
The First Major Prohormone Ban
As the supplement industry evolved, the technology going into the science behind prohomone manufacturing exploded. Soon these “legal” substances became just as effective as moderate doses of some of the mild steroids used by athletes. It seemed like every time you opened a magazine or visited a bodybuilding website, you were presented with another new prohormone 237 percent more anabolic than the last! In 2004, the U.S. Congress passed the Steroid Control Act. This legislation stiffened the steroid laws, as did the accompanying prohormone legislation. At that point, numerous hormones and precursors were added to the Controlled Substances list, but supplement manufactures would alter their compounds to create new prohormones not on the banned list. The FDA was always one step behind the supplement industry.
2014 Designer Anabolic Steroid Control Act
Last year, the U.S. government, via the Council for Responsible Nutrition, put together the Designer Steroid Anabolic Control Act of 2014. It was a bill that expanded the list of anabolic steroids and prohormones currently regulated by the DEA. Through the act, the government was trying to control the false labeling of steroids, but what it meant for bodybuilders and other athletes was that we were about to lose a ton of over-the-counter barely legal steroids and prohormones. That means companies who wanted to continue selling prohormones and designed steroids had to get creative to find ways to still bring you effective prohormones and other anabolic/androgenic substances without violating laws set by current legislation. Enter IronMag Labs and Super-DMZ Rx 4.0.
What Makes Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 So Potent?
Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 contains seven different ingredients, including one SARM (selective androgen receptor modulator) and a “natural anabolic.” The “anabolic backbone” of Super-DMZ’s formula comprises Super 4-DHEA (a prohormone to testosterone), Super 1-DHEA (a prohormone to 1-testosterone), Super 5-DHEA, and Super Epi-Andro.
There have been complaints in the past about the bioavailability of DHEA-based prohormones, which is exactly what Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 is, but leave it to the scientists at IronMag Labs to do something about this challenge. The researchers at IML modified the molecular structure of the DHEA agents, making their prohormones over 30 percent more bioavailable and increasing their purity level in the process.
The ingredient list of Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 reads like a illegible mish-mash of consonants, vowels, and numbers to those not in the know about biochemistry or pharmacology. But Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 isn’t for those people. Super-DMZ is for those hardcore bodybuilders and serious competitors who understand exactly what 1-AD, DHEA, and AAS are.
The 4 Horsemen of Super-DMZ Rx 4.0
Although it’s a prohormone to testosterone, Super 4-DHEA must undergo a two-step chemical conversion process before it gets there. The first step is converting over to 4-androstenediol. 4-AD is slightly more androgenic than 1AD, but that’s not a bad thing if size, hardness, aggression in the gym, and explosiveness on your lifts are your thing! Bodybuilders hate estrogen because it can cause unwanted side effects in men (what’s known as aromatization), but the reality is that some estrogen is desirable; estrogen is important for mass gain and maintaining overall health.
This is the boss ingredient. Though Super 1-DHEA will eventually convert to 1-testosterone, it undergoes a two-step process. One of these steps is converting to 1-androstenediol first. 1-AD is what’s responsible for the majority of Super-DMZ Rx 4.0’s anabolic effects!
This compound is similar to Super 4-DHEA in that it’s also two steps away from testosterone, but the primary effects are less anabolic and more almost health-oriented. Super 5-DHEA helps with increased insulin sensitivity, enhanced immune function, and conversion to 7-keto DHEA, which is responsible for a thermogenic effect, which is why you may recognize this ingredient in some very popular fat burners.
This is a prohormone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) normally referred to as epiandrosterone. DHT is also an exceptionally androgenic steroid, but is what accounts for the increased strength you’ll see on Super-DMZ. Super Epi-Andro is the ingredient that will result in an alpha-male mindset and greater muscle hardness and density, giving users that really hard, grainy look.
How to Cycle SUPER-DMZ
Use Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 in cycles of four to six weeks only, and take at least six to eight weeks off in between cycles. The reason you need to cycle Super-DMZ is because it does have an intense physiological effect on your hormones. Yes, its effect is a good one, but even so, you need to give your body a break, and a chance to reset itself. Think of cycling Super-DMZ the way some bodybuilders cycle steroids, creatine, and the ECA stack, to allow for a regeneration of receptor site affinity. In this case, taking an “off” period after a cycle will help keep the androgen receptor sensitive. When adding Super-DMZ to your dietary supplement stack, take one or two capsules twice daily in divided doses.
Who Should Use Super-DMZ
Check with your physician before using any prohormone, SARMS, or other anabolic/androgenic substances. These types of supplements are just on the legal edge, so be responsible. Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 should only be used by healthy adults at least 21 years old and those living in countries where the product is legal! Do not use Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 if you are at risk of or being treated for diabetes, liver problems, or high blood pressure. Do not drink alcohol while using Super-DMZ Rx 4.0 as this will cause liver toxicity and reduce your own natural production of testosterone, which is counterproductive. Be sure to increase daily water intake to assist with proper hydration, detoxification, protein synthesis, intracellular hydration, and cell volumization. Be sure to carefully read all label warnings for use and follow all directions for use.
IronMag Labs – Some Lead, Others Follow
The 2014 Anabolic Steroid Control Act may have changed the prohormone market forever. But it’s progressive companies such as IronMag Labs that are always improving their formulas to stay ahead of the FDA and continue to bring you OTC prohormones that deliver real results. These “supplements” aren’t for everyone, but neither is building freaky mass, shredded abs and titanic triceps.
