According to the data analysis of financial department at Alfa Chemistry, the sales of Steroidal Compounds is expected to grow at annual growth rate of 5% during 2016-2017.
Steroid refers to a class of natural or synthetic organic compound characterized by a molecular structure of 17 carbon atoms arranged in four rings, which include three cyclohexane rings and one cyclopentane ring. The steroid group includes all the sex hormones, adrenal cortical hormones, bile acids, and sterols of vertebrates, as well as the molting hormones of insects and many other physiologically active substances of animals and plants.
Alfa Chemistry provides two kinds of steroidal products: natural steroids and anabolic steroids. Besides, they can also be divided into several groups according to their different structures, such as Sterols, Bile acids, Brassinosteroids, Bufadienolides, Cardenolides, Cucurbitacins, Ecdysteroids, Sapogenins and so on.
Steroidal compounds are solid alcohols orignated in the cells of plants and animals .Plant steroids are natural organic compounds in plants, which exert a wide range of biological activities including growth, development and cell division. Some plant steroids are also can be used for human beings to decreases the amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream, such as phytosterols. Most animal steroids are derived from vertebrates and insects. For example, the former includes steroid hormones and cholesterol, the structural components of the cell membrane, which are the main components of the plaque. Animal steroids derived from insects such as ecdysterone, which can control the molting of certain species.
Steroids compounds have been used widely in our lives. For example, the unique structure and distinguishable physicochemical properties of bile acids enable them to be used in drug delivery. One of our key steroidal products, Chorionic gonadotrophin, which is detected in some pregnancy tests. The presence of human Chorionic gonadotrophin in plasma and urine is one of the earliest signs of pregnancy for pregnancy testing.
“According to the sales data from our sales and financial department, our sales of Steroidal Compounds is expected to grow at annual growth rate of 5% during 2016-2017.” said Dr. Brenda Randy, the marketing manager at Alfa Chemistry.
