1-Androstenediol, also known as 1-AD, is a naturally occurring steroid hormone found in the human body. It is a metabolite of testosterone and is used as a dietary supplement to increase muscle mass and strength. It is also used to treat certain medical conditions such as hypogonadism and delayed puberty.

1-Androstenediol has been linked to a number of adverse effects, including liver damage, increased risk of prostate cancer, and increased risk of cardiovascular disease. It can also cause masculinization in women, including increased facial and body hair, deepening of the voice, and enlargement of the clitoris.
