Olympus Labs Str3ngth Breakdown and Dosing

We’ve found that there is very little information on 5a-Hydroxy Laxogenin so here is a brief breakdown on what the ingredient is and how I suggest taking it.

5a-Hydroxy Laxogenin is the main ingredient found in Olympus Labs Str3ngth. It is shown to have an anabolic/androgenic ratio similar to Anavar, but without the side effects of liver stress or any hormonal shut down. Athletes claim to have seen strength increases in 3-5 days, and muscle mass increases in 3-4 weeks. A.1

In recent studies Laxogenin has increased protein synthesis by over 200%, which is a crucial component to lean muscle mass and improved recovery. In studies, Laxogenin has also been shown to balance cortisol on calorie restricted diets, helps control glucose and increases thyroid function. In addition to all of that, Laxogenin greatly improved recovery and reduction of muscle wasting. A.1

The Breakdown – Our suggested dosing.

I usually dose my Laxogenin 3 times daily.  I take one capsule with my morning meal, I take my next capsule mid-afternoon with a protein bar and shake, and then my final dose is during the evening time. I take two capsules pre-workout, I feel taking 50mg of Laxogenin pre-workout greatly helps with my strength and fullness during my workouts.  The total amount of Laxogenin that I take daily is 100mg equaling to 4 capsules.

Laxogenin is by far one of my favorite supplements to add to my arsenal. I’ve used it as a standalone and I’ve also used it with my PCT supplements. Another plus about this ingredient is that after my pro-hormone cycle, I’ve kept the majority of my strength from my pro-hormone cycle and that recovery improved quite a bit. I didn’t notice much of an increase in muscle mass, although you may gain 2 – 4lbs while using Laxogenin, at the most using one bottle. I can also say that my elbows and shoulders, during my pro-hormone cycle, were a little tender but after using the Olympus Labs Str3ngth, my joints felt rejuvenated! As with any supplement, it comes down to a diet and training method that best fit you.

My overall rating of Olympus Labs Str3ngth:

5, being the highest, 0 had no effect at all.

Strength – 5/5

Recovery – 4/5

Lean Muscle Mass – 3/5

Joint Recovery – 4/5

5a-Hydroxy Laxogenin was discovered in 1996 and shown to have an anabolic/androgenic ratio similar Anavar, but without the side effects of liver toxicity or testing positive for steroidal therapy. Athletes claim to have seen strength increases in 3-5 days, and muscle mass increases in 3-4 weeks.

AKA Laxogenin

This compound has shown up as a standalone in Anabolica and Zoe’s Ecdysterone.

5a-hydroxy-laxogenin is a steroidal sapinogen, although whether or not it is the desired laxinogen is a mystery since no lab standard for it is available, nor was it referenced within the GCMS library.

Marketing claims for this compound say it is the only product ever designed to increase mass and strength without steroidal influence and that it doesn’t test positive for steroids.

Tests showed that protein synthesis increased by over 200%, the key to lean muscle growth and accelerated repair. In testing, 5a-Hydroxy Laxogenin has balanced cortisol response, which is the major cornerstone to healthy recovery and reduction of muscle wasting.

It’s also been shown to balance cortisol on calorie restricted diets, helps control glucose and increases thyroid function.

Drips and Drabs pulled from the Internets….

“Laxogenin does indeed have some pretty profound anti-inflammatory effects. In addition to being able to be synthesized from Diosgenin, it is a component of smilax sieboldii.”

“Laxogenin is a steroidal sapogenin isolated from Smilax sieboldi. As a spirostanic analogue of the brassinosteroid – teasterone, Laxogenin is noted for it’s growth promoting activity [in plants]. It has also been demonstrated to aquire [cytotoxic] properties however, to what degree, I am not sure. In contrast, Laxogenin was demonstrated to aquire antitumor-promoting activity in a two-stage lung carcinogenesis experiment.”

The best (published) study can be found in the journal Phytochemistry, 1971, vol. 10, pp 1339-1346. Again in 1989, same journal vol. 28, no. 9 pp 2509-2511 (laxogenin acetate). There is reference going back to 1965 in Chem. Pharm. Bull. 13(5), pp. 545-550 (laxogenin).

It was Syrov’s paper of 1976 though, appearing in Farmakol, Toksikol that really sparked my interest. The paper is entitled, “An Experimental Study on the Anabolic Activities of 6-keto Derivatives of some natural sapogenins.

It details the 4 sapogenins (referred to as compounds 1-4 in the Soviet Union) and gives source material, results of the classic steroid model (levator ani studies) and mentions other clues critical to their use. Most of these compounds can be derived from Diosgenin (so can testosterone).

Laxogenin appears closest to Compound 2, the most desirable of these. Thermo includes it as 25R in their formulation and I very much wish it were available as a standalone. I can tell you from experience that when you get the right Laxogenin, it for sure delivers on the recovery, anti-inflammatory etc. side of things and is a superb regenerative agent.
