Arabol a legal alternative to steroids.

I just bought this stuff from a local damaged goods place.

Can't find Arabol? Then get Universal Animal Test


I've really been wanting to try several of the ingredients featured in the product.
  1. Arachidonic Acid (AA)
  2. 3,4 Divanill
  3. Icariin (40%)
  4. 5-Methyl-7Methoxy-Isoflavone
  5. 7-isopropoyisoflavone
  6. 20-Hydroxy-Ecdysterone (Ecdysterone)         

The below information is from Nutrishop. They appear to be the only retailer of the product.

CellShock Research (previously known as BioShock Research), is a hardcore legal
alternative for increasing lean muscle mass! ARABOL is a powerful, next generation,
ergogenic, anabolic supplement utilizing precise ratios of patented ingredients.†

COMPLEX 1: (Arachidonic Acid, 97% 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran
from Urtica Dioica, Icariin 40%)†
Arachidonic Acid (AA): What is Arachidonic Acid and what does it do?
Arachidonic Acid (AA) is an essential acid considered to be a part of the Omega-6 group.
It is stored in the muscle cell membranes and released when the muscles are
stimulated from intense exercise or resistance training. AA is responsible for sending
signals of adaptive changes in the case of muscle damage or other types of stimuli.
 AA is clinically proven in independent, double-blind University studies with reports of
increased muscle mass, acceleration of fast twitch muscle fiber growth, facilitation of
rapid strength and power increases, boosts in muscular endurance and changes in
body composition of competitive athletes and bodybuilders through resistance training.
In fact, AA was awarded a U.S. Patent for Increasing Skeletal Muscle Mass in Humans!
It acts as a core regulator of muscle protein synthesis, and is responsible for increasing
cellular sensitivity to primary anabolic hormones such as testosterone, insulin,
growth hormone, and IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1). Because of its central role
in the process of muscle growth, AA is the single most effective anabolic nutrient available for  
supplementation, capable of supporting significantly faster and more profound increases in
muscle size, strength, and lipolysis (fat loss). AA is a clinically proven safe and effective
performance enhancing supplement.† Placebo-controlled clinical trials published in 2006
demonstrated remarkable a 600% increase in peak muscle power, along with statistically
strong trends of improvement bench press 1-rep max (44%), average muscle power (223%),
muscle endurance (250%) when taken for 50 days by experienced weight training men.

The scientist responsible for bringing AA to the sports nutrition world, William Llewellyn,
is a world-renowned foremost authority on anabolic substances and its effects on muscular
performance. An accomplished research scientist, author, publisher, inventor, columnist,
and company CEO in the field of sports nutrition and anabolic substances, Llewellyn has
been featured in ESPN Magazine, Washington Post, Fox News Channel, ESPN Television,
NPR News, ESPN Radio and other national and regional TV / Radio news programs.
In addition to writing the Anabolics Books, Llewellyn also writes a monthly column for
Muscular Development, and has written numerous articles for other bodybuilding publications
including Ironman Magazine, Exercise for Men Only, and Natural Muscle. During his
fifteen years of anabolic research, Llewellyn has made several important scientific
discoveries. His latest discovery of Arachidonic Acid has been patented for its anabolic
properties and its “use as a method of increasing skeletal muscle mass.”†

What are the benefits of taking Arachidonic Acid? Arachidonic Acid (AA) is the
primary building block for the synthesis of dienolic prostaglandins, which includes both
PGE2 and PGF2. These are prostaglandins that are tightly involved with the protein synthesis
and muscle hypertrophy (the increase of the size of muscle cells), two things that occur
after exercise. AA begins to display its anabolic activity early during exercise. This nutrient
is released from your muscle fibers as they are damaged during intense training, triggering a
localized inflammatory and anabolic response. This is part of the same biological process
that causes you to be sore a day or two following a good workout, and reminds us that the
old adage “no pain, no gain” is a fundamentally true one. AA liberation from damaged
muscle fibers is, similarly, the very first anabolic trigger, in a long cascade that will control
the rebuilding and strengthening of muscle tissue after exercise. Among other things, by
increasing local Androgen, IGF-1, and Insulin receptor density, AA allows Testosterone,
IGF-I, and Insulin to increase protein synthesis rates and repair the damaged tissue. In this
way, AA supports the anabolic actions of these hormones not by increasing their levels,
but by providing more local receptor sites to attach to (making the process both faster
and more intense). As a crude explanation, AA directs the body to where it needs muscle
tissue repair, and opens the door for the anabolic hormones to do their job.†

Who can benefit from taking Arachidonic Acid? Those that are weight training or
would consider themselves as an athlete may benefit from supplementing with AA.
As you exercise, your AA levels usually decrease as does the production of anabolic
prostaglandins. AA is most commonly supplemented by bodybuilders, individuals that play
a sport on a daily basis, frequent gym attendees, and other individuals that participate
in activities where short, rapid bursts of performance are constantly required. If you are
an athlete or bodybuilder with a reduced level of AA, you’ll probably experience
“training stagnation,” which means you will see a decline in your muscle’s ability to
stimulate muscle growth.†

3,4 Divanill™ (97% 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran): A high-potency extract of stinging
nettle root. Most of your circulating testosterone is bound or inactive. A plasma glycoprotein
called Sex-Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) binds up most of your testosterone so that
it cannot exert any anabolic effect. 3,4 Divanill(TM) knocks out SHBG allowing your own
testosterone to be free. This is significant because SHBG-bound testosterone cannot exert its
muscle-building effects.†

Icariin (40%): A flavonol found in epimedium extracts is included in the product formula
because of its effects on mimicking testosterone and increasing levels of circulating
testosterone, meaning it works in concert with 3,4-Divanill™. In addition, it should also
assist in increasing libido due to its effects on raising nitric oxide and inhibiting an enzyme
known as Phosphodiesterase type 5 or PDE-5.†

COMPLEX 2 (5-Methyl-7Methoxy-Isoflavone, 7-Isopropoxisoflavone,
5-Methyl-7Methoxy-Isoflavone (Methoxy): This anabolic flavone compound has
been one of the most widely talked about bodybuilding supplements in years. Methoxy is
quite possibly the most powerful legal anabolic compound ever created! According to
its U.S. Patent, Methoxy is an anabolically effective compound that was developed to
produce significant weight gain increase, specifically fat free lean mass. But what makes
Methoxy truly unique is its function as a nutrient-partitioning agent. Methoxy has been
shown to actually shuttle the nutrients you consume (i.e., protein) selectively into muscle
tissue to help promote lean muscle mass. Methoxy is truly a groundbreaking legal
supplement that’s sure to shake the very foundations of the sports nutrition industry.†

7-isopropoyisoflavone: 7-Isopropoxyisoflavone was developed in the early 1970’s.
It has been shown to shuttle vital nutrients away from adipose (fat) tissue and
toward proteinaceous (muscle) tissue as well as having very strong cortisol suppressing
properties. The most dramatic result of this compound  is increased nitrogen retention, which
is one of the main actions of anabolic steroids. 7-isopropoxyisoflavone’s anabolic activity
has been compared to the anabolic steroids methenolone, oxandrolone and stanozolol.
The difference is 7-isopropoxyisoflavone had no negative effects on testosterone production
which is a possible side effect of anabolic steroid use. Due to its anabolic properties,
7-isopropoxyisoflavone has been shown to help strength training athletes selectively
increase fat free lean mass. Studies have recorded up to 20% gains in lean muscle weight
from its use.†

20-Hydroxy-Ecdysterone (Ecdysterone): Until recently Ecdysterone, or beta-ecdysone,
was neither legal nor commercially available. Today, Ecdysterone is now legally
available to bodybuilders and fitness minded individuals. Ecdysterone is an exciting
discovery because it is a natural anabolic agent. From anecdotal reports, 100mg of
Ecdysterone can dramatically increase nitrogen retention. The nitrogen-sparing effects
of Ecdysterone can benefit the bodybuilder by increasing the amount of muscle that
can be accumulated.†

These 3 powerful and perfect, non-hormonal, highly anabolic/anti-catabolic compounds
(5-Methyl-7-Methoxy-Isoflavone, 7-isopropoxyisoflavone and 20-Hydroxy-Ecdysterone)
work synergistically through different metabolic pathways to produce even better results
than taking them individually, making them the perfect stack! And if you really want to
maximize your muscular gains, be sure to take ARABOL™ with Protein! ARABOL™
works incredibly well with protein because of its nutrient partitioning ability to transport
and force protein, glycogen and much needed nutrients away from fat (adipose) tissue
and toward muscle (proteinaceous) tissue.†

BIOAVAILABILITY AGENT – Bioperine®:Lastly, a product is only as good as
its bioavailability and uptake. Bioperine® has been added as it is the only product
sourced out of piperine to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the
bioavailability of nutritional compounds. Secondly, it is the only source from
piperine to have undergone clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its safety
and efficacy for nutritional use.†
For increased effectiveness, ARABOL can be taken in conjunction with Testosterone
enhancing supplements. Consume ARABOL with high protein meals or shakes. For
best results, be sure to also increase your daily caloric intake.†
ARABOL is intended for use by men only. Read entire warning on bottle and
consult your physician prior to use.†

If you are an athlete subject to performance enhancing substance testing, you
should discuss the use of ARABOL™ with your sanctioning commission or body
prior to supplementation.†
