How Does It Work?

Testosterone enanthate contains the hormone testosterone in a special oil formulation that is injected into a muscle. Testosterone is slowly absorbed into the body, allowing for injections just once every two to four weeks in most cases. It works by increasing testosterone to a normal level.
 
Testosterone enanthate is used as an injection rather than taken by mouth because it would have little effect on testosterone levels if taken orally. When medications are taken by mouth, they must first pass through the liver before they reach the bloodstream. The liver metabolizes testosterone extensively before it has a chance to reach the bloodstream, and adequate blood levels usually cannot be achieved. However, when testosterone is injected into a muscle, it bypasses the liver, allowing significant amounts of the hormone to reach the bloodstream.
