Generic Name: Testosterone Undecanoate
Virigen, is a unique version of Testosterone Undecanoate developed by Organon. This version of Testosterone is based in oil and is sealed in a capsule to be taken orally. According to the manufacturer, this method bypasses the liver and enters the body as a fat through the lymphatic system. In theory this seems quite interesting, however, athletes find Organon’s claims don’t hold up well. In doses of less than 240mg per day effects are generally non-existent. With higher doses, effects are small at best. This leads one to think most of the steroid is not making it to circulation. Generally, steroid users experienced with any strong anabolics will be disappointed with Virigen’s results. Combined with other anabolics it may lend some effectiveness but should be questioned.
Testosterone Undecanoate comes in capusles 40 mg capsules 60/bottle. This product comes under the names Androxon, Undestor, Restandol and Restinsol in Europe and South America. This agent is a revolutionary oral steroid. It is presented in little, oval shaped, red capsules. Virigen is a unique steroid in that it is not an alpha alkylayted 17 steroid. This all but eliminates its hepatotoxicity.
Virigen is actually contained in a natural ester base, one, which is very easy on the body. This product’s advantageous properties are similar to other Testosterones in that it promotes rapid strength and weight gains. It, like other Testosterones, promotes the storage of glycogen as well as ATP. Virigen does not seem to exhibit the degree of LH and FSH suppression that is seen with other testosterones and androgens.
Aromatization is also minimal with this agent. All in all, Virigen seems to yield gains similar to other Testosterone esters, while being safer to administer. This drug has a wide following in parts of Europe where it is available.
If it were around in the United States, its popularity would be comparable to oral Dianabol. Effective dosages seem to be in the area of 200 mg a day taken in divided dosages. Virigen is a safe oral steroid that does not suppress gonadotrophins.It is absorbed through the small intestine into the lymphatic system, no burden to the liver. It is a natural ester added to a synthetic derivative which will not change liver enzymes. No testicular shrinkage, no reduction on in spermatogenesis will occur with reasonable dosages. Cholesterol triglycerides and total lipids tend to be reduced with long term use of Virigen as opposed to elevated with most oral steroids.
Effective Dose: 4 – 10 caps/ day
