Tinctures, Tonics & Testosterone Treatments | Brief history of synthetic testosterone
After toying with fragrance molecules in perfume for some time, scientist Leopold Ruzicka’s research eventually delivered us synthesized testosterone made from cholesterol. Synthetic testosterone derivatives (esters), also referred to as anabolic androgenic steroids, have been a thing for almost a century in one form or another. Whether we have an opinion about them or not won’t change that.
What you may not know is that 50 years ago prescription anabolic steroid use was more prevalent than it is today, in fact it was out of control.
First synthesized in 1935 by Leopold Ruzicka, a joint winner of the ’39 Nobel Prize for greatness achieved in chemistry, Testosterone’s reputation didn’t take long to grow thanks in part to doctors who appear to have drunk the Kool-Aid en-mass.
By 1950, local doctors in the USA recklessly prescribed testosterone derivatives as a remedy for just about anything. Ailments which qualified for this amazing “cure all” included weight loss, depression and tobacco dependency. Disturbingly, testosterone was used in various failed attempts to “treat” homosexuality.
Yes, the male hormone testosterone has earned itself a bad reputation, but we’re here to talk Brand Names of prescription androgen steroids so let’s get to it:

“No, No, you idiots you missed one!!”
What?. no..OK. If you think you know one that’s missing, please drop us a quick note here, we’ll take a look and happily add it to the Archive. Some countries had (or still have) no pharma industry regulation, making them susceptible to unethical businesses producing un-tested and possibly non-compliant (or just plain dodgy) product.
For that reason, copy cat ripoffs are not Archived here, but have a home in the Black Market Steroids 2021 post you wouldn’t want to miss for all the “T” in Testosterone.
Thanks for reading. My researcher and I wish you the best in fitness and in health!
