Platinum Nutrition Jumps into the prohormone game with two new transdermals unlike anything else on the market.


It’s fairly rare to see any prohormone company launch a transdermal (or “cosmetic topical”) prohormone.  But Platinum Nutraceuticals has recently made a splash by launching several different prohormone and supplement transdermal gels on the market.  When they first launched they had a much larger line of prohormones, unfortunately the ban forced them to cut back – quickly.  As far as I can tell this company launched in late October of this year.  Many prohormone companies launch with only a few products at a time, but Platinum Nutra has several, which means they seem to have some substantial funding behind them.  Good for prohormone users?  Well let’s see what they have…

11-oxoderm11-OxoDerm – This product contains 450 mg’s of 4-androst-3,11,17-trione, or what is more commonly knowns as 11-oxo or adrenosterone.  Each bottle contains 60 servings or 27 total grams of 11-oxo per bottle.  11-oxo is a prohormone to 11-Ketotestosterone which is popular during cutting cycles.  As I’ve mentioned elsewhere on this site, 11-oxo in an oral form (capsule) is typically taken at a very minimum dose of 300 mg’s per day, and up to over a 1 gram per day.  For a little more information on 11-oxo and 11-ketotestosterone check out these articles:

My opinion is that this is a very good product (if you can get it at a decent price).  Typically with a transdermal you would want to see it contain primary hormone, which in this case would be 11-ketotesosterone.  However the dose is large enough that it could very well be better than an oral 11-Oxo prohormone product. This seems to be their flagship product, and for good reason.

11-OxoDerm Label Information

Each bottle contains:

 

  • 60 mL’s
  • 1 mL = 450 mg’s of Adrenosterone (11-oxo)
  • 4 pumps = 1 mL
  • Other ingredients – Benzyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, D-Limonene, Thiazone, Nerolidol, Propylene Glycol

Beginner Cycle

1 bottle

Week 1 – 6 pumps per day*
Week 2 – 8 pumps per day*
Week 3 – 8 pumps per day*
Week 4 – 10 pumps per day*
Week 5 – PCT

*apply all doses after a shower

Intermediate Cycle

2 bottles
You could run this with something like Furazadrol, or halodrol (add these week 2 or 3 for example)

Week 1 – 6 pumps per day*
Week 2 – 8 pumps per day*
Week 3 – 8 pumps per day*
Week 4 – 10 pumps per day*
Week 5 – 12 pumps per day*
Week 6 – 14 pumps per day*
Week 7 – 14 pumps per day*
Week 8 – PCT

*apply all doses after a shower

andro 300Andro-300 – Andro-300 is again a transdermal prohromone that contains epiandrosterone (or 3β-hydroxy-5α-androstan-17-one).  Epiandrosterone is a prohormone to dyhydrotestosterone (better known as “DHT”).  This is a unique product because it is the only transdermal variation of epiandrosterone on the market today.  As I’ve previously discussed (see articles below) epiandrosterone can make an excellent base for any prohormone cycle.  It tends to lower estrogen, and the gains are very lean and dry.  It also improves libido and some experience an energy improvement.  It is in my opinion an excellent stacker with compounds like 1-DHEA (Alpha Mass for example).

Again at the right price Andro-300 appears to be a winner.  With over 9 grams of active epiandrosterone this is almost comparable to oral capsule products, but gives the unique benefits of transdermal administration.  It might one of the very few OTC supplements that can also stave off symptoms of gyno on cycles that aromatize.

Andro-300 Label Information

Each bottle contains:

 

  • 90 mL’s
  • 1 mL = 100 mg’s of Epiandrosterone
  • Other ingredients –  Thiazone, Nerolidol

Beginner Cycle

1 bottle

In general Andro-300 isn’t the best solo prohormone, so consider a stacker.

Week 1 – 2 mL per day*
Week 2 – 3 mL per day*
Week 3 – 3 mL per day*
Week 4 – 4 mL per day*
Week 5 – PCT

*apply all doses after a shower

Intermediate Cycle

2 bottles
You could run this with something like Superdrol, or 1-DHEA (add these week 2 or 3 for example)

Week 1 – 2 mL per day*
Week 2 – 3 mL per day*
Week 3 – 3 mL per day*
Week 4 – 4 mL per day*
Week 5 – 4 mL per day*
Week 6 – 5 mL per day*
Week 7 – 5 mL per day*
Week 8 – PCT

*apply all doses after a shower

It’s hard to say for certain but I’d guess that the prohormone ban hurt Platinum Nutra as they had only been in business for a few short months before it took effect.  Having said that, 11-OxoDerm and Andro-300 appear to be products that will continue to sell well as their unique topical formulations are not offered by any other company.  If you are new to transdermals remember that they come with a contact risk.  Typically you really don’t want to pass on anything anabolic to children or women, so be sure to be careful when using these products.  If you do give them a try I’d love to hear some reviews.
