Prohibition of Prohormones
Big Brother’s Ban on BodyBuilding Boosters and other Government Health Hoopla

Following a proposed ban initiated by the FDA, there’s much controversy surrounding it, followed by myriad press releases, anticipated dates of enforcement, appeals, schedules, repeals, etc. It does the public a disservice to cloud the issue with such perplexing inclusions, exclusions, and requirements. It’s difficult to find the most up to date information on current states of specific compounds in the list of federally regulated substances. Go ahead, google it now, and see—you’ll be ambushed by “all prohormones banned”, or “prohormones are still legal”. Right, draw a conclusion from that. Or, go ahead and dig into the brain behind the ban on on Big Brother’s own website (fda.gov), and find the outdated broken pieces of proposals, bills, personal letters opposing the ruling. Junk. At www. iprohormones.com we did the work for you; yes, we poured over redundant articles drawn up by website owners housewives to present an almost accurate interpretation of law, dodged misleading links, pulled our chewed up cyber legs out of the unavoidable bear traps you find yourself in by one wrong click. Poured over press releases, agonizing anabolic articles delivered by amateurs (or possibly the same housewives), deciphered the code in the chemical engineer’s chemical profile of prohormones, and escaped with the pearl of pertinent information in this disorganized oyster shell of cybermation. And we humbly present to you the most recent information to guide you in your bulking buys, your hormone hunts, your race for ripped, the seek for sleek, and your journey to jacked.

First and foremost, iprohormones.com only sells the legit stuff. We comply because those government people can be pretty pesky—so know that what we have available IS legal—until some meathead and his homies misrepresent prohormones to draw more unrelenting attention from the eye in the sky, and we also list what USED to be available that is currently under the prohibited items to make specifics a breeze for you. We list those products that are within the scope of government approved “dietary supplements” defined by the following statement (abridged of course….yeah, you’re welcome) and available, through mind numbing diligence, on the FDA’s website, and under the U.S.C controlled substance code:

“Dietary Supplement” a product (other than tobacco) intended to supplement the diet that bears or contains one or more of the following dietary ingredients: a vitamin; a mineral; an herb or other botanical; an amino acid; a dietary substance for use by man to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake; or is not represented for use as a conventional food or as a sole item of a meal or the diet; and is labeled as a dietary supplement; marketed as a dietary supplement or as a food unless the Secretary has issued a regulation, after notice and comment, finding that the article, when used as or in a dietary supplement under the conditions of use and dosages set forth in the labeling for such dietary supplement, a dietary supplement shall be deemed to be a food within the meaning of this Act.
