Question

With all the talk of steroid powders. What is the difference between the oral and injectable form? What would happen if one ingested a powder that is supposed to be converted into an injectable?

The vast majority would not be absorbed or
if absorbed, would be metabolized and
eliminated by the liver before it did you
any good. For the most part, with some
exceptions, only 17-alkylated and to a lesser
extent 1-alkylated steroids have good oral
bioavailability.
