    Illegal Ingredient, 5-Alpha-Hydroxy-Laxogenin, Appearing in More Supplements

    5-Alpha-Hydroxy-Laxogenin is often marketed in dietary supplements as a plant-based anabolic agent. However, this is false advertising. While it is related to the plant steroid laxogenin, there are no reports of the 5-Alpha-Hydroxy-Laxogenin derivative being detected in or isolated from any natural source.

    5-Alpha-Hydroxy-Laxogenin has been on USADA’s radar for some time because it’s frequently listed on labels of products that also happen to be contaminated or spiked with performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). On the Supplement Connect High Risk List, for example, of the products that list laxogenin on the label, about half of them also list a prohibited substance on the label, while the other half tested positive for an undeclared (unlisted) stimulant, anabolic steroid,or Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator (SARM).”
