Active: Testosterone Undecanoate.
Androxon is one of the few new steroids developed during the last few years. Unlike most anabolic steroids found on the market during the 1950s-1960s (and which in part, have disappeared). Test Undecanoate has only been available since the early 1980s. This fact probably explains why Androxon holds a special place among the steroids. Test Undecanoate is a revolutionary steroid because, besides methyltestosterone, it is the only effective oral testosterone compound. Testosterone, if taken orally, is ineffective since the portal vein (1) re-absorbs it. The liver immediately deactivates.
Androxon contains the substance testosterone undecanoate. The lymphatic system reabsorbs it via the intestine. By bypassing the liver it can become effective. This does not affect liver functions. Testosterone undecanoate is a fatty acid ester of the natural androgen, testosterone. Mostly transformed into dihydrotestosterone, a metabolite of testosterone. Androxon aromatizes only minimally since the dihydrotestosterone does not aromatize. Only a small part converts into estrogen.
The users of Test Undecanoate, therefore, do not experience feminization symptoms such as gynecomastia or increased body fat. This makes it a welcome alternative for athletes who have problems with the common injectable testosterone compounds. Because of this, Androxon is also suitable for pre competition workouts. An additional advantage of Androxon’s non-aromatizing quality. The fact that it only affects the body’s own hormone production after a long—term administration and at very high dosages. Androxon inhibits the hypothalamus only slightly. It rarely influences the release of LHRH (luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone). This is very important since LH-RH stimulates the hypophysis to release gonadotropins. This causes the Leydig’s cells in the testes to produce testosterone. Consequently, Test Undecanoate should be the perfect steroid; however, this is not the case.
The disadvantage of Test Undecanoate is that it only becomes effective if taken in high doses. Even at a dose of 200 mg of Androxon/day, the testosterone level in the blood is still too low for a bodybuilder to gain strength and muscle growth. You can explain the need for such a high daily dosage by its short half-life. The body excretes it quickly through the urine
The capsules, therefore, are effective for only a few hours. You should take 6-8 capsules. That is 240-280 mg (minimum). You should take it daily to achieve good results comparable to those of injectable compounds. This, however, puts the athlete in a dosage range which begins to inﬂuence the hormone production and the compound now more readily converts into estrogen. Such a dose can also manifest itself in higher retention of sodium and water. This is one factor which competing athletes must consider.
The capsules should be taken three times daily (approximately every 8 hours) after meals so that the substance can be properly reabsorbed. However, even this high dosage does not guarantee satisfactory results. Those who believe they need higher doses should consider switching to the injectable testosterone. Androxon is often combined with Oxandrolone since oxandrolone also does not suppress the production of testosterone and, in addition, does not aromatize. The Androxon/Oxandrolone stack gives athletes who do not yet have much experience with steroids a fairly large strength increase and also often substantial muscle growth.
For athletes over forty, this combination is also of interest. Those working out for competitions and wanting to avoid injections on a regular basis can substitute Testosterone propionate with Androxon. Since Androxon is quickly eliminated by the body it should also be considered for use before competitions requiring doping tests.
Women should avoid Test Undecanoate since the androgenic component, common with testosterone, is also strongly developed in this compound. Test Undecanoate intake can occasionally lead to high blood pressure, retention of fluids, acne, sexual over stimulation, and, in women, the well known virilization symptoms.
In recent years they have used testosterone undecanoate in hormone replacement therapy for men with low testosterone levels. In this version, known as Nibedo, they use a single 4ml injection every 3 months. It is extremely effective in this regard. Due to the cost of the oral versions, Androxon is rarely available on the black market.
