What Is Andractim?

DHT, or dihydrotestosterone, is an androgenic hormone that is synthesized from natural testosterone in your body by the 5a-reductase enzyme. Andractim DHT is a gel product that is a topical steroid. It is estimated to be as much as 30 times stronger than testosterone alone. It can be used twice daily to boost testosterone in the system and maintain a lean muscle development strategy.

This is the perfect product for these that want to really lean up the muscles, but not delve too deeply into anabolics. It is a great way to give an anabolic a trial run. Even though the numbers make it seem like a very potent anabolic, by the time it is absorbed in the body and breaks down it is not real strong. It is a good beginning or simple maintenance anabolic.

Andractin is perfect for:

  • Running;
  • Soccer;
  • Light to heavy aerobics;
  • Beginner weightlifting;
  • Overall light muscle toning;


Who Makes Andractim?

DHT is often called Androstanolone or Stanolone. DHT gel has been available in France, Belgium and a lot of other European countries for years under the name Andractim. It was developed by Laboratoires Besins-Iscovesco in France. Andractim is usually packaged in a tube that holds 80 applications of 25mg each.

How Does Andractim Work?

Twice daily application of the Andractim DHT gel allows it to enter the body and some of it is reduced to inactive metabolites, but much of it will make it to the androgen receptors. They respond in much the same way it would if you were taking testosterone. It reaches areas such as the prostate and scalp with relative ease, but it takes a bit more to get to the muscles. This is why 2 applications are needed per day.

As a non-aromatizing androgen Andractim will not convert to estrogen. Having large amounts of estrogen on hand suppresses LH production as well as testosterone. Andractim is also credited with somewhat suppressing estrogen. It is this combination of effects that leads to positive results when using the product.

Andractim is perfect if you:

  • Need an easy to take and apply anabolic;
  • Want a boost to natural testosterone;
  • Want t avoid injections or pills;
  • Want a real DHT product that does not revert to estrogen;


What Are The Ingredients of Andractim?

The active ingredient is dihydrotestosterone 2.5% by volume. There are actually 25mg per dose, but only 10% will be absorbed. The base is generally a medical grade petroleum jelly product.

One of the advantages to using Andractim is that it is easy and painless. There are no pills to swallow or shots to take. It is also very affordable. It is also a product that is not cycle dependent. You can use this any day of the year, all year long. You can apply the gel at your own daily convenience, but you need to make sure that no one else can come into contact with it. It will absorb into them as much as does into you. One of the most important benefits is that it in no way breaks down into estrogen. That is a problem with many products and it ends up leaving you worse off than when you started. Andractim may not be the most potent anabolic on the market, but the ease of application and consistent help of testosterone in your system makes it very popular.

Another issue it can help with for the newbie to fitness and training is to help tighten and tone the pectoral muscles. No man likes to take off their shirt during a workout if they have a slight case of “man-boobs.” The regular process of applying Andractim will reduce the flabbiness of the pectoral muscles. You will notice real results of firmness and tone in all of your muscles. Do not be scared off by the myth that Andractim can cause prostate problems. There are other topical testosterone creams that break down into estrogens. It is actually estrogens that wreak havoc on the prostate. Since Andractim never turns to estrogens it is beneficial to the prostate, or at least does no harm.

The Formula of Andractim



It does not require a lot of Andractim to see results, but you do need to apply 25 to 50mg twice a day. You do this by squeezing out about a dime size portion of gel (for 25mg) in the palm of your gloved hand. You need to apply it to the nipples twice each day. It absorbs fast here and is in a very out of the way spot. It will be relatively undisturbed. Since the average absorption rate is 10% you will be taking in anywhere from 2.5 to 5mg each time.

You do need to make sure that you do not inadvertently transfer Andractin to women, children or pets. Make sure to cover the skin with a shirt after application to avoid possible contact transfer. It only takes about 10 minutes for the gel to absorb and then you can wash the nipples with soap and water. It is then safe to carry your dog or hug your child.


Summary: You are not likely to find any heavy duty bodybuilders bothering using Andractim, although it’s a way to test the waters of anabolics. The topical method of application and low levels of benefit it produces means that it is not worth their time. It is perfect if you are just starting in the world of weightlifting or bodybuilding. Other than a slight soreness to the muscles initially there are some side effects. One problem can be availability. It is not always easy to find and could be illegal in many countries. Our advice is to stay away from Andractim, because it is risky and will not provide you good results. It’s better to choose a safer and more effective legal alternative.
