Testosterone Undecanoate is a pure testosterone hormone, and it attaches to a larger ester. The ester then attaches to the hormone and this is what allows the time release to occur. This steroid is widely used by athletes and bodybuilders due to the way it can enhance the individual’s overall performance. Because it works slowly, it will fit into almost all cycles and performance plans. Also, the user won’t see huge changes in their muscle mass with this steroid. However, many athletes like to get quality results without bulking up too much.

Effect of using Test Undecanoate:

  • Build quality muscle mass;
  • Significantly increase the level of endurance and strength;
  • Noticeably increase sexual desire;
  • Strengthen joints, bone tissue;
  • Increase muscle density;
  • Stimulate the growth of phosphorus metabolism;
  • Normalize nitrogen balance;
  • Improve mood;
  • To increase the intensity of red blood cell production;
  • Noticeable muscle definition with intense training.

What is the steroid Testosterone Undecanoate and the effect of its use?

There are important questions that need to be answered before using Testosterone Undecanoate just like with any other anabolic steroids. We have provided an explanation of what this steroid is above and now we can talk about its effectiveness.

When taken, fluid may be trapped in the athlete’s body. This is something that athletes and bodybuilders can avoid by sticking to the correct diet plan for the cycle. Also, water retention can be avoided by stacking testosterone undecanoate with a steroid that draws the excess water out of the body, such as winstrol. Testosterone undecanoate does not adversely affect the liver cells, it is well absorbed into the blood.

Results guaranteed?

For best results, it can be combined with other types of anabolic steroids. But even without them, Testosterone Undecanoate has a powerful androgenic and anabolic action.



All the TRUTH about Testosterone Undecanoate!

Testosterone undecanoate is recommended for men who have low testosterone levels. But it has benefited many bodybuilders who take it in various dosages and forms. The male hormone testosterone mainly benefits men who are looking to bulk up their physique. And those with a lower level of testosterone must take testosterone undecanoate as a supplement to boost muscle growth. Testosterone undecanoate, sold for use by mouth under the brand names Andriol and Jatenzo and for use in the injectable version under the brand names Aveed and Nebido, is an androgen and anabolic steroid. It is mainly used in the treatment of low testosterone levels in men. Testosterone helps the body to develop and maintain male sexual characteristics, such as a deep voice and body hair. It also helps with the maintaining of muscle mass and the prevention of bone loss and is necessary for the natural sexual ability or desire of it. Testosterone may also be used in certain adolescent boys that are late in the development with puberty. In any case this medication must be used regularly to get the most benefit from it.



What is Testosterone Undecanoate? History of Steroid.

Known as Nebido, this is an extremely large/long ester base testosterone compound that is also used in the treatment of low testosterone. Schering AG first produced the Nebido in 2004. Although this steroid is also used by fitness gurus, some say it’s not very popular since it is very slow acting in nature. But because of its longer half-life, the steroid does not require frequent injections which is why some like to use Testosterone Undecanoate. Testosterone is responsible for numerous actions throughout our body, including the development of sexual characteristics as well as the building and upkeep of muscle mass. This hormone plays a huge role in our every day lives and not only affects us on a physical level but does so on a mental level as well. It is perfect for the treatment of those with low testosterone levels.



Why should I start using Testosterone Undecanoate?

Testosterone Undecanoate carries several positive benefits that other steroids also possess. The steroid is said to be very versatile and has many uses and purposes when creating cycles and to treat low levels of natural testosterone in the body. With regards to performance enhancement, Testosterone Undecanoate will enhance our nitrogen retention as well as enhance protein synthesis. This is crucial for the purpose of muscle building in addition to cutting down on the recovery time after grueling workouts. Testosterone Undecanoate also increases our IGF-1 production, increases our red blood cell count and decreases our level of glucocorticoids. These benefits will provide us with a boost of energy and give us more endurance when working out.

For those suffering from low testosterone levels, implementing with Testosterone Undecanoate can prevent erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, loss of muscle mass, loss of strength and help with our inability to lose bodyfat. Testosterone Undecanoate will help with mental clarity, irritability, depression, a weakened immune system and a declining memory (to name a few). Because low levels of testosterone can create serious problems in the long run, Testosterone Undecanoate can be crucial to those who want to avoid these problems. Any testosterone ester will play a key role in the following:

• Muscle mass;
• Bone health;
• Sex drive;
• Mood and overall quality of life;
• Facial and body hair;
• Verbal memory and thinking ability;
• Development of deeper voices;
• Fat loss;
• Increased strength;
• Increase in energy.



For how long Testosterone Undecanoate can be detected?

Testosterone Undecanoate has a half-life of 33 days, allowing it to maintain serum levels in the normal range for over six weeks. Injectable testosterone undecanoate is primarily used in the treatment of low testosterone due to extremely long half-life. Detection time for injectable testosterone undecanoate is 5 months.

Testosterone undecanoate in the capsule form such as Jatenzo are much different. Concentrations peak about four hours after taking your dose. Because of this it is recommended that users take 40-80mg three times per day. Dectiontion times for testosterone undecanoate in capsule form are around one week. Oral steroids no matter which one, clear from the body much faster than injectable.



Testosterone Undecanoate Cycles for Bulking and Cutting

The recommended dose of testosterone undecanoate is 750 mg (3 ml) intramuscularly; followed by 750 mg (3 ml) intramuscularly after 4 weeks, then 750 mg (3 ml) intramuscularly every 10 weeks thereafter. Because the drugs half-life is extremely long it wouldn’t reach peak concentration levels in the body until nearing the end of a 16-week cycle. This is the reason for testosterone undecanoate not being used much in the world of sports. Testosterone undecanoate main use is in testosterone replacement therapy for males with low amounts of the hormone being produced naturally in their body. This steroid is not for cycling. Testosterone undecanoate can be used when coming off a big cycle or for someone who has been running gear for years non-stop. It will be effective in the way of post-cycle therapy to help an athlete’s body get back on track after stopping very long cycles.



Side Effects? Can I avoid it with Testosterone Undecanoate?

Even though Testosterone itself may have some side effects that other derivatives have avoided, Testosterone overall is said to be the safest anabolic steroid. The reason is because it is the anabolic hormone that the human body produces naturally. That being said, we still need to present you with the possible side effects that can occur with the use of Testosterone undecanoate. We will point out that the side effects that may occur in both men and women are easy to deal with and well tolerated.


Estrogenic

Testosterone itself does produce a mild level of estrogenic activity; therefore, the possibility of side effects such as gynecomastia, some water retention and an increase in blood pressure may occur. These are not likely, but we want you to be aware in case you notice the onset of any of the above. When using any Testosterone ester, it is best to have inhibitors on hand such as Clomid or Nolvadex.


Androgenic

Since Testosterone is the prime male androgen, the possibility of androgenic side effects does exist. Bouts of acne, oily skin and hair loss (with a history of male pattern baldness) may occur with those who inject Testosterone undecanoate. Ancillary drugs can be taken to minimize or combat these effects. The most common ancillary drugs include Proscar or Dutasteride. Other uses have reported body and facial hair growth. This includes both male and female users of the steroid.


Cardiovascular

Cardiovascular strain and negative cholesterol are also things to be on the lookout for when injecting Testosterone undecanoate. Healthy individuals who use this steroid are less likely to have these side effects. The length of cycle will also play a key role in whether the individual is at risk for these effects. Try to avoid foods high in saturated fats and make cardio a daily part of your routine to keep your heart healthy and your cholesterol levels down.


Testosterone

The use of Testosterone undecanoate is no exception to the rule when we say that steroids suppress the body’s natural production of testosterone. Possible complete shut-down is possible but this will depend greatly on the length of the steroid cycle in addition to how long the user has been taking steroids. Failure to properly run Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) after a steroid cycle will also hinder the body’s natural production of testosterone. This could lead to more serious health conditions down the road for the user.


Hepatotoxicity

Testosterone undecanoate does not exhibit any measure of toxicity on the liver. This is because the steroid comes in injectable form and does not have to pass through the liver. The oral version of this steroid isn’t toxic to the liver either. When used orally the steroid gets absorbed in the body through the lymphatic system and does not pass through the liver. This is why when taken in the oral form it is recommended that the dosages be administered with the consumption of food, ideally with a higher fat content so that this will maximize the drugs absorption.



Dosage and Administration Recommendations with Testosterone Undecanoate

Testosterone undecanoate in injectable form comes containing 250 mg/ml of the steroid dissolved in oil and packaged in 4ml ampules containing 1,000mg of steroid in total. The recommended dose of testosterone undecanoate is 3 mL (750 mg) injected intramuscularly, followed by 3 mL (750 mg) injected after 4 weeks, then 3 mL (750 mg) injected every 10 weeks thereafter. With the use of testosterone undecanoate in oral form this process is much different. Medically, testosterone undecanoate dosages are prescribed in the range of 120-160mg per day for the first 2 to 3 weeks. After this period the dosage gets reduced to 40-80mg per day. For performance and physique enhancement, the oral dosage must understandably be far greater. A minimum of 250mg per day is required (6 or 7 capsules) to see any measurable effect, and many individuals claim that the results at this range are on the low end. Commonly, oral testosterone undecanoate is used at a dosage of 400 – 500 (10 – 14 capsules) per day. Advanced or experienced users may require even higher dosages than that.

If you use the drug in the form of injections, the natural question arises: how to inject Testosterone Undecanoate or other injectable steroids?

It is necessary to act in stages:
• Determine the concentration of testosterone;
• Use a sterile syringe and needle (pre-select the appropriate size, taking into account the oily texture of the drug);
• Wash your hands and put on sterile gloves (do not touch non-sterile objects, if this happened - change gloves);
• Collect the required dose in the syringe (a thicker needle is used);
• For the introduction of the drug, it is desirable to change the needle to a thinner one in order to reduce the pain;
• Squeeze the air out of the syringe (it is important to prevent the entry of air bubbles into the human body in order to avoid embolism);
• Prepare a place for injection (wipe the area on the body with an alcohol wipe);
• Give an injection (before pressing the syringe plunger, it is necessary to delay it slightly).



What is injectable Testosterone Undecanoate Cycle Lengths?

Injectable Testosterone Undecanoate is either ran year-round as maintenance or for TRT. As for the oral form of testosterone undecanoate, cycles should generally follow the same guidelines as cycles of any other Testosterone products, although it may have to be dosed higher due to its poor bioavailability. Oral testosterone undecanoate can be used in a solo cycle or as a testosterone base stacked with other steroids for a cycle. Cycle lengths for testosterone undecanoate range 8-16 weeks. As I said before, it is not a very popular Testosterone product for the purpose of performance or physique enhancement among bodybuilders and is rare to find information on cycles for this steroid.



Post Cycle Therapy after Testosterone Undecanoate injections! IMPORTANT INFO!

As stated earlier, testosterone undecanoate in injectable form isn’t ran in cycles but if you’re running something with mixed esters and undecanoate is one of them, start your post cycle therapy 2-3 weeks after the last injection. Clomid and Nolvadex is a good choice for post cycle therapy. If you are running the oral version of testosterone undecanoate then start your post cycle therapy 3-5 days before you stop the cycle using the same PCT drugs.



Personal Experience of Testosterone Undecanoate injections: PRO bodybuilder story

I would only use this ester of testosterone for hormone replacement therapy. In my opinion there is absolutely no need to run this steroid when there is so much better to choose from. Only when retiring from bodybuilding should there be need to use this steroid and even then Cypionate or Enanthate is a much better choice. And the oral form, forget about it! You might as well take the cash and flush it down the toilet. Reason being, you would have to take so many per day to get any results and the most I’ve seen is 120 capsules in a bottle, it would just not be worth it. A user of this type of testosterone undecanoate would be going through 3 bottles a month.

PROFESSIONAL REPLIES FOR YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT UNDECANOATE


Terry's asking:

What is testosterone undecanoate used for? I have been lifting for years and never heard this type of testosterone come up in conversation.

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Testosterone Undecanoate is manly used for TRT. Back in the 1990’s the capsules were popular among bodybuilders. The problem when using the capsules though, they weren’t able to keep consistent levels and found it better to just stick with Enanthate and Cypionate. Nebido is the injectable form for TRT and many on treatment like it due to the long half life and that don’t like injections. Undecanoate has the longest half life of any testosterone ester by far.

Adam's asking:

Which is better to use for testosterone replacement therapy, Andriol capsules or the injectable? I’m asking because I’d rather not have to do injections.

..................................................................................................

Reply:

For TRT there is no way around it unless using the testosterone gel. Andriol is not a good option for TRT. The capsules are out of the system to quickly. We recommend taking the injectable testosterone undecanoate for TRT. Half life of this testosterone ester is the longest of all, therefore the injections aren’t that frequent.

Nick's asking:

How long is half life of andriol capsules?

..................................................................................................

Brandon Firestorm, professional bodybuilder


Joseph's asking:

Hi. I have heard that the capsules are not toxic to the liver. Is this true? If so, why?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Andriol capsules are not harmful to the liver. The steroid is designed so that its delivery to the blood is through lymphatic system and therefore bypasses absorption by liver. This is why the capsules are filled with oil. Digestive system will take then in as a fatty oil.

Brandon Firestorm, professional bodybuilder


Mark's asking:

How often do you need to take the capsules and in what amount?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

The capsule form of this steroid must be taken 3-4 times per day. One will need to take 12-20 capsules per day to keep levels of testosterone present in blood. Once half life is hit with android, that’s it, its basically useless from there. It is not like other oral compounds.

Bob's asking:

What is testosterone undecnoate used for in the bodybuilding or fitness industry?

..................................................................................................

It isn’t much. Some may use Test-U when off cycle, almost as if it were PCT but most times Test-E & Test-C are used.

Brandon Firestorm, professional bodybuilder


Luck's asking:

Can you guys tell me how long I can run a cycle of andriol being it’s not hard on liver?

Brandon Firestorm, professional bodybuilder


Derek's asking:

Will andriol give me the same results as dianabol?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

No. It doesn’t because levels are to inconsistent when taking Andriol. Only small amounts of the hormone make it into the blood compared to D-bol. Dianabol will give better results.

Brandon Firestorm, professional bodybuilder


Michael's asking:

Is there anything I can add to a cycle of andriol to make it work better?

..................................................................................................

Reply:

Proviron is a good addition to free up more of the testosterone. Other orals – Winstrol, D-bol, Anavar will be nice addition also.
