Every athlete wants to make his body perfect as soon as possible. For quick hormonal support of the body, athletes are recommended to take Andriol. The convenient form in capsules also adds to the drug its advantages. The agent does not have a negative effect on the liver, as it enters immediately into the lymph. Also, a big advantage of taking this drug is called its rapid removal from the body.
The effect of the drug on the body
The composition of the drug contains testosterone undecanoate in the amount of 40 mg and additional substances that work in combination and have androgenic activity:
- the hormone has an anabolic effect on the bodybuilder’s body;
- helps in protein synthesis;
- increases the rate of bone calcification;

- contributes to the growth of muscle mass.
In addition to the positive aspects, it should be noted the side effects of the drug on the body of athletes:

If side effects occur, you should stop taking the drug and consult a doctor to determine the dosage reduction.
For medical purposes, Andriol is used to reduce the amount of testosterone in men. The drug is classified as hormone replacement therapy. Treatment with Andriol is used for endocrine impotence, some forms of infertility, with reduced libido, masculinization and a decrease in physical activity in both women and men. A decrease in body tone can also be the reason for prescribing this drug for athletes.
