Meaning of Androgenic
Androgen, also called androgenic hormone or testoid, is any natural or synthetic compound, usually a steroid hormone, that stimulates or controls the development and maintenance of male characteristics in vertebrates by binding to androgen receptors. - See link


Androgenic in Spanish is Andrógeno
Los andrógenos son hormonas sexuales masculinas y corresponden a la testosterona, la androsterona y la androstenediona. Los andrógenos son hormonas esteroideas derivados del ciclopentanoperhidrofenantreno, cuya función principal es estimular el desarrollo de los caracteres sexuales masculinos. Los andrógenos, básicamente la testosterona, son segregados por los testículos, pero también por los ovarios en la mujer (androstenediona) y por la corteza suprarrenal de las glándulas suprarrenales (principalmente dihidroepiandrosterona). - See link
