: : Animal, I want to use methanol to dissolve TA out of pellets. My question is only regarding the methanol:
: : I have seen - Gas line anti-freeze, which states "Over 98% methanol". Is this pure enough? It doesn't say what the other 1.??% is.
: : Methanol/Toluene solution - is toluene bad news?
: : Denatured alcohol/methanol.
: : Which of these is best? I'm having a bitch of a time finding 100% methanol.
: : Thank you!!!
: I wouldn't waste my time dissolving the binders and such. They won't hurt you--remember
: they're meant for subcut implantation. Plus, when you extract, you inevitably lose some
: product. Have you tried taking them orally? It works regardless of what others may say
: If the steroid is odd enough the liver won't be able to break it down enough in the first
: pass--an example of this is methenolone!
Unique my friend, "odd" enough is not a very scientific description of what is going on
here. Methenolone is not broken down because the 1 alpha methyl group interferes with the
action of 17beta-HSD thus interfering with the oxidation of the 17 beta hydroxyl. TA on the other
hand has only an ester protecting the 17beta hydroxyl and in the liver this will be hydrolyzed vir-
tually immediately and the oxidation will take place. However you might be able to get a decent effect
if you took large dosages orally or if you could do the TA sublingually.
