Methyltestosterone. Active: Methyltestosterone
Methyltestosterone is an oral form of testosterone. Testosterone itself is ineffective when taken orally since the greatest part of the compound is metabolized and destroyed by the liver during the ”first pass” so that at most 5-10% of the compound enters the blood and becomes effective. Methyltestosterone is a 17-alpha steroid molecule. This means they add a methyl group to the C-17-alpha position of the molecule. Thus, the liver does not break it down and deactivates it as fast as oral testosterone is. Still, it quickly reaches the blood and has only a low half-life.
The mucous membrane in the mouth reabsorbs a part of Methyltestosterone. Sublingual intake is possible. Methyltestosterone is a very potent steroid since it has a distinct androgenic effect. In particular, it’s use it to increase aggressiveness. Powerlifters and weightlifters use it before a heavy workout or a competition since the increased androgenic effect can already be noted one hour after intake and the improved aggressiveness, the increased self-esteem, and the thrust of motivation taking place allow the athlete to lift heavier weights.
In the U.S., football players often use Methyltest is as a stimulant by before a game. In bodybuilding, methyltestosterone is of limited use since it is not suitable for permanent strength and muscle gain. It is rarely used for this purpose since most bodybuilders prefer Dianabol which has a similar structure. Those, however, who would still like to try it will notice a quick and strong strength gain. The increase in body weight is within normal limits and is mostly due to water retention. Dianabol is clearly more effective to build up muscle tissue. Some bodybuilders use it in irregular intervals during a diet phase in order to increase their training will-power or they use Methyltest as a ”training booster” in order to overcome a “dead point.”
The dosage is usually 25-50 mg/day. Athletes rarely take Methyltest for more than four weeks. Women usually do not use it at all.
Methyltestosterone is a very toxic steroid which can cause many side effects. It especially puts stress on the liver. A famous American powerlifter once said, “Methyltestosterone burns cute little holes in your liver.” Since this steroid strongly aromatizes, gynecomastia is one of the most common side effects. The distinct water and salt retention can also increase blood pressure. The androgenic effect results in considerable virilization symptoms in women and acne and AGGRESSIVENESS in men. It is no joking matter to be around someone who works a lot with methyltestosterone. Effects include anti-social behavior, irritability, impatience, tantrums, and forgetfulness or light disturbances in consciousness. For example, it is possible that after training you cannot remember where you parked your car. These show that methyltestosterone really affects your brain in a negative manner.
