An OK DHEA option, but did not have anywhere near the effects for me as it did for others.
I’ve some experience with DHEA-derived products, but this was my first time dosing such a product trans-dermally. My understanding is that, because the product is not being broken down by the liver before being absorbed, the hormone conversion percentage is higher, thus resulting in a more potent product and better results. Some of the reviews below are misleading in my opinion. DHEA is a naturally occurring hormone that, once produced, is converted to several other hormones, including testosterone. This is not a synthetic/artificial compound such as Epistane or Halodrol. It will not unnaturally drive up your testosterone production. It is generally not recommended for individuals under the age of 30 to supplement DHEA as the body makes enough on its own and doesn’t need additional supplementation. The excess will be expelled as waste. With respect to shut down and the need of a PCT – I’ve read conflicting research. Most articles state the worst side effects of dosing DHEA will be a mild temporary reduction in natural test production and that no PCT is needed. I’ve personally never run a PCT after supplementing DHEA and have never had any issues.
4-Andro contains 4-DHEA, a version of DHEA that is more anabolic in nature than others. Recommended dosing of DHEA supplements varies from 50mg to 300mg daily depending on how and why it’s being supplemented. I read below that the vendor requested each user dose at 2ml daily (equivalent to 200mg), meaning the bottle would last a total of 30 days.
I dosed the bottle per the vendor’s instructions – 1ml twice daily and rotated application spots as suggested. The liquid is thin and oily with a medicinal/alcohol smell. It absorbs relatively quickly but I’d caution you if you’re dosing this right before bedtime. My first day on 4-Andro I rubbed this on my chest and got right into bed and smelled rubbing alcohol for the rest of the night. From then on I made sure to dose after my shower but well before bed.
I’m 32 and thus in the recommended age range for DHEA supplementation, however I’ve never had an issue with low testosterone or anything along those lines. I saw minimal results from my 30 days on 4-Andro. I did notice a fuller look to my muscles and a general leaner look overall, but I did not experience any change to libido which was surprising. I mentioned before I’d run several other DHEA supplements and the results have generally been a mixed bag. I’d put 4-Andro slightly above average in terms of effectiveness. I honestly would have liked to have run a second bottle as I usually start to see more potent results in the fifth and sixth weeks of a DHEA run.
Current 4-Andro is not for sale on any vendor site (that I can find at least). I see below that it was previously available for $40 a bottle. Transdermal DHEA derivatives are generally expensive, but for my money I’m just not sure they are worth the results. If you’re going to run a legit cycle of 4-Andro, you’ll need two bottles, and I’m having a hard time rationalizing spending $80 on such a cycle. LOT of other ways to spend that money and get better results.
I had no issues at all with 4-Andro. No shutdown or side effects. No acne or oily skin
4-Andro is a decent DHEA product, but one that is likely to stretch the wallets of many people. If you’re interested in a safe prohormone cycle and have researched DHEA, then sure consider 4-Andro. I could also see this as being a nice add-on to a true PH stack (if you’ve got cash to blow). Personally it’s not a product I’d consider purchasing for that amount of money.

Product was awesome. I ran it at 2-300mgs ED and it worked like a charm. Small lean muscle gains, libido increases! I am a fan

4 andro Transdermal
spreads onto skin easily and absorbs easily too
Very effective. I think I like it a bit more then oral 4 andro
Great price with this brand
Like testosterone maybe some increased oily skin or acne as a possibility? Just a bid, really not bad.
4 andro is an awesome ingredient. This version was very good. It was affordable and it really absorbed well into the Bloodstream. I literally could apply it and an hour later, my libido was better, I felt physically more alert, energized and was hungrier. After running it for a month I was easily able to see I added some small lean muscle, my bodyfat was lower and my strength went up a bit.
