Oral administration of Andriol Testocaps 40mg does not allow to bypass the liver (as stated in many sources). However, we need to know that the process of alkylation is 17-? for esters it is a difficult task, moreover, it is complicated by the presence of the methyl group. And this means that estrasis will not show activity, and buy Andriol 40 mg will not turn into testosterone. What then is the mechanism of action? In order to prevent the destruction of andriol by the liver, a very clever way was invented – encapsulation of the drug. Specialized capsules contain an oil solution of ether. This gave the drug a lipophilic property, which allowed him, without affecting the liver, to immediately get into the lymphatic system.
At first glance, everything is fine, but here’s the catch: either the drug was not lipophilic enough for the absorption process to take place, or in theory there were inaccuracies, but in practice the mechanism did not work.
Studies have shown that the bioavailability of the andriol testocaps 40 mg for bodybuilding is about 6-7% at dosages of less than 6 capsules per day (about 240 mg). Now imagine the benefits of using any other testosterone ester in such doses.
The effect of the use of Andriol Testocaps 40 is so small that it is invisible to the naked eye. Higher dosages of the drug give a small effect, but you can not call it significant.
