Chosen 1 is a muscle-building supplement by Blackstone Labs which is supposed to be a legal replacement for certain products that got discontinued as a result of the recent FDA Prohormone Ban…
Chosen 1 contains a few forms of the same basic molecule, 1-DHEA…
What Is 1-DHEA?
1-DHEA is two conversions away from 1-Testosterone, a highly anabolic compound which is several times more potent than Testosterone itself. To be clear, this does not mean that 1-DHEA is more potent than (or even anywhere near as potent than) Testosterone. It takes two conversion to get to 1-Testosterone and a lot of bioavailability is lost along the way.
Blackstone claims that Chosen 1 features a proprietary delivery system which increases bioavailability but, of course, there are no studies at this time backing up those claims.
The Bottom Line
Chosen-1 isn’t a prohormone. It’s more of a “pro-pro-hormone”, and therefore perfectly legal. Unfortunately, this also means it’s probably not that effective. If you want to give it a shot, it may be worth it, but don’t expect any massive gains in a short amount of time, like those you would see with actual prohormones.
