Beta-AndrosteNOL Pheromone Molecule
16, (5α)-ANDROSTEN-3β-OL (Beta-Androstenol) is the beta isomer of Androstenol and is produced in both men and women. Considered the deeper social opposing the lighter Alpha-Androstenol, community researchers have indicated a desire to be more truthful and meaningful in conversations. Figuring into the equation a deep sense of connection thus creating a lasting imprint of trust and respect.
Beta-Androstenol has a mustier odor most associated with sweat as well as lighter hints of musk and sweet vanilla. Some experienced users claim its closer to body odor, but easily masked with fragrance.
Our community researchers have indicated a wide use for Beta-Androstenol such as playtime, employment, social, status, flirting, intimate to sexual. As such it is apparent the entire application spectrum has been covered. If we had to select one Beta-Androstenol would fall into the social category.
While wearing Beta-Androstenol people are willing to communicate on the level of someone they feel trusting of. It is often this reason we suggest it to those in a relationship. This trust and connection is the primary switch that signals attraction and can often lead to intimacy and sex.
We have all experienced that moment when confronted with a total stranger we feel compelled to trust. Its that uncanny ability of that one grandparent we have who is an amazing judge of character. The wonderful experience of meeting your new BFF for the very first time and just having that feeling as if you known them all your life. Beta-Androstenol is at play in every one of these instances.
There are those in the scientific community that have discounted Beta-Androstenol as a pheromone outright. As passionate enthusiasts, pheromoneXS has crowd-sourced pheromone research to an understanding, contributing to our conclusion that Beta-Androstenol is a powerful pheromone molecule. Only those who use pheromones in real-world adventures can understand the submodalities we therefore associate with Beta-Androstenol.
pheromoneXS recommends Beta-Androstenol as a staple component of your pheromone collection. Like any single pheromone molecule you should research the intricacies so as to better understand its highs and lows. This molecule can be blended with most other pheromone molecule with exceptional results.
At the low end of usage, below 20 mcg per spray Beta-Androstenol displays trust, respect, conversation and works magic for anyone who is in the mist of a disagreement. At dosages higher than 20 mcg per spray Beta-Androstenol has a tendency for introspection and is perfect for meditation.
Another highly cited use at higher mcgs is a truth serum effect, the colloquial name, associated with such psychoactive medications as sodium pentathol. Maybe not quite like the fantasy portrayed in Hollywood movies, but you might actually be surprised how much more effective it can be.

Sniffing a human sex-steroid derived compound affects mood and autonomic arousal in a dose-dependent manner.
Bensafi M1, Tsutsui T, Khan R, Levenson RW, Sobel N.
The effects of sniffing different concentrations of the human sex-steroid derived compound 4,16-androstadien-3-one (AND) on autonomic nervous system function and mood were measured in 60 subjects. The effects were sex-specific and concentration-dependent. Only high concentrations of AND (0.00625 M) increased positive mood (p < 0.03) and decreased negative mood (p < 0.05) in women compared to men, and had sympathetic-like effects in women (p < 0.003), and parasympathetic-like effects in men (p < 0.05). These findings further implicate AND in chemical communication between humans, but pose questions as to the path by which AND is transduced, whether through chemical sensing or transdermal diffusion.

Sex-steroid derived compounds induce sex-specific effects on autonomic nervous system function in humans.
Bensafi M1, Brown WM, Tsutsui T, Mainland JD, Johnson BN, Bremner EA, Young N, Mauss I, Ray B, Gross J, Richards J, Stappen I, Levenson RW, Sobel N.
The physiological and psychological effects of 2 human sex-steroid derived compounds, 4.16-androstadien-3-one (AND) and l,3,5(10),16-estratetraen-3-ol(EST) were measured in 24 subjects who participated in a within-subjects, double-blind experiment. A dissociation was evident in the physiological effects of AND, in that it increased physiological arousal in women but decreased it in men. EST did not significantly affect physiological arousal in women or men. Neither compound significantly affected mood. AND is an androgen derivative that is the most prevalent androstene in human male sweat, male axillary hair, and on the male axillary skin surface. The authors argue that AND's opposite effects on physiology in men and women further implicate this compound in chemical communication between humans.

The effects of sex and hormonal status on the physiological response to acute psychosocial stress.
Kajantie E1, Phillips DI.
Whether one is male or female is one of the most important determinants of human health. While males are more susceptible to cardiovascular and infectious disease, they are outnumbered by women for many autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia and chronic pain. Recently, individual differences in the physiological response to stress have emerged as a potentially important risk factor for these disorders. This raises the possibility that sex differences in prevalence of disease could at least in part be explained by sex differences in the nature of the physiological response to stress. In a psychophysiological laboratory, the autonomic nervous system response can be provoked by many different stressors including physical, mental and psychosocial tasks, while the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPAA) response seems to be more specific to a psychosocial challenge incorporating ego involvement. The responses of both systems to different psychosocial challenges have been subject to extensive research, although in respect of sex differences the HPAA response has probably been more systematically studied. In this review, we focus on sex differences in HPAA and autonomic nervous system responses to acute psychosocial stress. Although some differences are dependent on the stressor used, the responses of both systems show marked and consistent differences according to sex, with the phase of the menstrual cycle, menopausal status and pregnancy having marked effects. Between puberty and menopause, adult women usually show lower HPAA and autonomic responses than men of same age. However, the HPAA response is higher in the luteal phase, when for example post stress free cortisol levels approach those of men. After menopause, there is an increase in sympathoadrenal responsiveness, which is attenuated during oral hormone replacement therapy, with most evidence suggesting that HPAA activity shows the same trends. Interestingly, pregnancy is associated with an attenuated response of the sympathoadrenal and HPAA systems at least as assessed by biochemical stimulation. It is likely that these sex differences in autonomic function are a result of estrogen exposure which attenuates sympathoadrenal responsiveness. The HPAA is however somewhat more complex and evidence now suggests the influence of other modifiers such as arginine vasopressin (AVP) and the regulation of circulating cortisol bioavailability by corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG). The pronounced and multi-faceted sex differences in stress responsiveness suggest that they are a product of a strong evolutionary pressure. We hypothesise that this has to a great deal been driven by the need to protect the fetus from the adverse effects of maternal stress responses, in particular excess glucocorticoid exposure. Studying this hypothesis may have a fundamental impact on our understanding about how adult health is set during early life and how adult disease could be prevented in men and women.

A pleasant familiar odor influences perceived stress and peripheral nervous system activity during normal aging.
Joussain P, Rouby C, Bensafi M.
Effects of smells on stress have been demonstrated in animals and humans, suggesting that inhaling certain odorants may counteract the negative effects of stress. Because stress plays a key role in cerebral aging, the present study set out to examine whether positive odor effects on perceived stress can be achieved in elderly individuals. To this end, two groups of aged individuals (n = 36 women, aged from 55 to 65 years), were tested. The first group was exposed for 5 days to a pleasant and, by end of exposure, familiar odor ("exposure odor"), whereas the other was exposed to a non-scented control stimulus. Stress and mood states were assessed before and after the 5-day odor exposure period. Psychophysiological markers were also assessed at the end of exposure, in response to the "exposure odor" and to a "new odor." Results revealed that stress on this second exposure was decreased and zygomatic electromyogram activity was increased specifically in the group previously exposed to the odor (p < 0.05). Taken as a whole, these findings offer a new look at the relationship between perceived stress, olfaction and normal aging, opening up new research perspectives on the effect of olfaction on quality of life and well-being in aged individuals.
