Also available orally, methyltrienolone, or oral trenbolone, provides excellent results with ease of use. However, the effects and side effects are often opposed, which makes a realistic assessment of whether the side effects are worthwhile for the desired objectives. Everything you should know about this topic you will find here.
This report deals with the two oral forms of the anabolic steroid trenbolone. The first form is simply trenbolone acetate pressed into tablets. In principle, oral trenbolone acetate has the same effects and side effects as injectable trenbolone acetate, but the efficacy of orally administered trenbolone acetate is likely to be more than questionable due to the destruction of most of the active substance in the first pass through the liver.
In the second oral version of trenbolone you are dealing with a much more interesting active substance. This is trenbolone, which has been made available orally by means of 17-alpha alkylation.
Methyltrienolone was developed by a well-known French pharmaceutical manufacturer, who has already launched trenbolone hexahydrobenzyl carbonate, the only ever-approved trenbolone preparation in the field of human medicine, in the nineties. Unlike this trenbolone, however, methyltrienolone was never granted medical approval and was practically used only as a trial chemical. This explains the extremely poor availability of this drug as well as the few reliable data on its application and effects.
Many rumours that are buzzing around this steroid may be due to the fact that it is not available as well as to the assessment of androgenic and anabolic activity. Expert literature indicates the androgenic effect of methyltrienolone with 8,000 percent of the corresponding effect of methyltestosterone and the anabolic effect of methyltrienolone with 12,000 percent of the effect of methyltestosterone. These values, however, are not readily applicable to humans because they are determined by the growth of the prostate and various other accompanying symptoms in castrated juvenile rats.
Part of the strong effect of methyltrienolone is due to the fact that methyltrienolone can not be bound in the body and thus 100% of the active ingredient is available. By comparison, the body contains between 95 and 98 percent of the body's testosterone in bound form and is therefore not active.
The dosage observed in practice in bodybuilders is generally between 500 and 750 mcg. It is not recommended to take more than 1 mg of the drug per day. It is not recommended to take the medicine longer than 3-4 weeks in a row.
Unfortunately, the strong effect of methyltrienolone is accompanied by a very severe load on the liver. Many sources refer to methyltrienolone as the most liver-damaging oral steroid at all, which is anything but not exaggerated. Already dosages in the range of 1 mg methyltrienolone per day lead to a strong increase in different liver enzymes and cause symptoms of a back-up of the bile acid in the liver.
This is also the reason why methyltrienolone is used in practice only for a few weeks and never used in combination with other oral anabolic androgenic steroids. Since methyltrienolone, like its starting steroid trenbolone, is a 19-norsterid, it causes a complete and sustained suppression of the body's production of testosterone, which can lead to impotence, among others. To prevent this libidoproblem, most users of methyltrienolone or trenbolone use concomitantly a testosterone variant.
The main use of methyltrienolone is likely to be diet and competition preparation, for which there are several reasons. Due to its structure, methyltrienolone in the body can not be converted into estrogen by the aromatase enzyme, so that undesired water storage is eliminated. Since methyltrienolone can dock to the androsterone receptor due to its action as progestin and in practice suppresses up to 90% of the corporeal androsterone from its receptor, it also acts as an effective diuretic since androsterone is responsible for a sodium retention in the body which promotes water retention. In addition, methyltrienolone has a distinct anticatabolic effect as it blocks the formation of catabolic acting cortisol. Together with the fat-burning effect described by many users and the ability of methyltrienolone to maintain the strength even during a strong calorie restriction, an anabolic androgenic steroid is produced which shows extremely advantageous properties during an extreme diet phase or the competition preparation. Because of the strong liver burden, the very poor availability and the fact that trenbolone acetate has similar effects, the question is of course whether the use of methyltrienolone really makes sense.
