Methyltestosterone. Active: Metheyltestosterone
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. At a closer look methyltestosterone is a 17-alpha steroid molecule, which means that a methyl group is added to the C-17-alpha position of the molecule. Thus, methyltestosterone is not broken down and deactivated quite as fast by the liver as oral testosterone is. Still, it reaches the blood quickly and has only a low half-life time.
Since methyltestosterone, in part, is reabsorbed through the mucous membrane in the mouth, this substance is also available for sublingual intake. Methyltestosterone is a very potent steroid since it has a distinct androgenic effect. In particular, it is used 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. Methyltest is often used as a stimulant by football players before a game. The use of methyltestosterone in bodybuilding is limited 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. Methyltest is rarely taken, if at all, for more than four weeks and women usually do not use it.
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. By the way, though a doping test was often assumed to exist, there is no such test for methyltestosterone that checks the testosterone/epitestosterone value. It is easily detectable in a test since Methyltesto breaks down on its own and specific metabolites can be easily tested in a urine analysis. Thus it does not make sense to take Methyltesto in small dosages hoping that in this way the permissible testosterone /epitestosterone level of 6:1 will not be exceeded.
