Many Anabolic/Androgenic Steroids (AAS) are available in an oral form. Unfortunately some are also quite toxic to the liver. Orally administered AAS are very susceptible to first pass liver deactivation unless chemical molecular structures are altered to make them harder to deactivate. When an oral AAS is swallowed it enters the stomach where it is partially broken down and passed to the small intestines. The small intestines contain a group of enzymes called CYP-450’s. These enzymes begin to break down the AAS further in an attempt to deactivate it. The AAS is then absorbed through intestinal mucosa cells and transferred to the liver portal vein for further deactivation into inactive chemicals such as etiocholanone. These chemicals are then conjugated with glucuronic acid and excreted in urine. Up to 100% of the original compound can be deactivated in this process which is known as first pass deactivation.
Like their injectable cousins, oral steroids are also altered for higher or lower ratios of anabolic and androgenic effects. As an example, injectable testosterone is highly androgenic and highly anabolic. By altering the testosterone molecule structure, nortestosterones such as nandrolones are created. This shifts the ratio in favor of anabolic qualities with less androgenic effects.
