Andro supplements are dietary supplements containing a steroid hormone. Andro supplements are a type of pro-hormone, an anabolic agent that transforms into testosterone through the two-step process and releases into the bloodstream. The andro supplements have advantages such as increased muscle mass, improved muscle recovery, increased strength, increased energy, increased protein synthesis, reduced body fat, and decreased muscle fatigue. However, there is no substantial evidence that andro supplements promotes muscle growth.

Andro supplements are generally administered orally in the form of tablet or capsule but with extensive research, andro supplements are available in the form of a spray, which can be administered orally just beneath the tongue enabling rapid absorption of the drug.
One of the major restraints that hinder the market of andro supplements growth is the availability of the alternatives which are natural in origin such as fenugreek seed extracts which are becoming a popular trend throughout the world. Moreover, stringent government regulation is a restraining factor for the growth of andro supplements. Since compounds containing androstenedione are banned from the market according to Anabolic Steroid Control Act in 2004 by the FDA, andro supplements companies need to alter or improve their products to be able to enter the dietary supplements market.
Andro supplements can lead to some side effects if not consumed within appropriate levels under supervision, which include increased aggression, hair loss, increased kidney and liver valves, high blood pressure, gynecomastia, and muscle cramp. Some studies have also shown that the use of andro supplements resulted in a reduced level of HDL cholesterol, consequently increased level of LDL cholesterol.
