Oral Test Read This
Testosterone Undecanoate is a unique oral testosterone product. One of the more recently developed esters, 40 mg of Testosterone Undecanoate, based in oil (oleic acid) are sealed inside a capsule. The design of this compound is quite different from that of most oral steroid medications. Drugs administered orally generally enter the blood stream through the liver. When a compound is given this way without some form of structural protection, it will be quickly broken down during this "first pass". This process leaves very little testosterone intact, basically deactivating the drug. Adding a methyl group (c-17 AA) to the structure is one way to protect it from this process, however stress can be placed on the liver as a result. The designers of this product sought another way to protect the testosterone molecule. This was accomplished by making a form of testosterone that would be absorbed through the lymphatic system. This is due to its high fat solubility brought about by the ester, and its suspension in oil. Having the compound absorbed this way is very advantageous, as this allows it to bypass the first-pass through the liver. This should permit the compound to enter the blood stream intact, without the need for a chemical alteration. The ester breaks off once it is in circulation, yielding free active testosterone.
As with all testosterone products it has a strong anabolic activity, with a pronounced androgenic component. Thus it can provide significant gains in strength and muscle mass, as well a noticeable increase in libido. However, Testosterone Undecanoate does not aromatise at a rate as high as other testosterones.
The use of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin ) and/or Clomiphene Citrate/Tamoxifen Citrate may also be beneficial at the conclusion of use in order to ensure balance in the hormone system, though Testosterone Undecanoate does not have the same potential to cause disturbance to the HTPA (Hypothalamic Pituitary Testes Axis) as the other esters.
Dosages are typically in the region of 4 to 8 capsules daily. The testosterone peak in the blood is reached very quickly (approximately 2 hours). Levels subsequently decline, reaching baseline by 12 hours. If an even blood level of the hormone is desired, the dosage is best consumed at even intervals 2 - 3 times per day.

1. Could you give up the link of where this info came from?
2. This is also known as Andriol and it would reak potentially lethal havoc on your cardiovascular system. Oral test is horrible on the blood lipids.

Anyway, whenever you hear about testosterone being horrible on the lipids it is based on oral testosterone. Injectable and transdermal testosterone can actually make improvements to lipid levels. Me personally, I would rather deal with a needle as opposed to a heart attack or stroke.

The half life is so short on this product..
Plus it is pricey...
Bioavailabilty is questionable...
Waste of money except in certain situations IMHO.

No it is normal Test with a Undecanoate ester on it,
The pill coating is what is important, I would actually chew it... Oil doesnt taste too bad. But I doubt you get upwards of 10-20% of the Test in your bloodstream through this method.

Andriol is total sh!t - I tried it @ 280mg ED before I grew the balls to stick myself - waste of money......
It's pretty cheap now cos no one really wants it
There was some talk a while back about a new & improved form of Andriol with a much better absorbtion rate / efficiency - haven't heard anything for a while tho....
