Andriol is one of the few new steroids that have emerged in recent years. Unlike most anabolic steroids that entered the market already in the 50-60s, Andriol has existed since the early 80s. This circumstance probably explains why Andriol occupies a special place among steroids. This is a revolutionary steroid because along with “Methyltestosterone” is the only oral testosterone preparation.
Testosterone itself is completely ineffective when taken orally. is reserved through the portal vein and is immediately inactivated in the liver. The active chemical substance testosterone undecanoate contained in Andriol is absorbed through the intestine and bypasses the liver into the lymphatic system, so this drug is effective when taken orally. At the same time, there is not the slightest effect on liver function. Testosterone undecanoate is an ester of a fatty acid of the natural androgen – testosterone and is converted in the human body mainly into dihydrotestosterone, a product of testosterone metabolism. Therefore, Andriol is only minimally flavored, i.e. only a small part of this substance can be converted to estrogen, because Dihydrotestosterone is not aromatized. Therefore, Andriol does not show feminization phenomena in those who accept it, such as, for example: gynecomastia or increased formation and accumulation of fat. Therefore, it is a desirable alternative for athletes who have problems with conventional injectable testosterone preparations. On this basis, “Andriol” is suitable for preparation for the competition.
Another advantage – the non-aromatization of Andriol – allows the body not to feel the effect of the steroid on its own hormone reproduction, which happens only in cases of long-term treatment with high doses. Because “Andriol” is very quickly excreted by the body, this should be taken into account when competing with doping control. Women should avoid using Andriol because androgenic components – as in all testosterones in general – are very pronounced in the body when taking this drug. When using it, sometimes there are phenomena of high blood pressure, accumulation of fluid in the body, acne, supersexuality, and in women, all this leads to the phenomena of masculinization.
