I used 1-test in a topical preparation (avant labs ONE).
I experienced some gains, but there were drawbacks.
The 1-test made me very lethargic. How can you get some intensity going if you feel down all the time and tired?
The topical solution was also not very convenient. If you have contacts, stay away. If I smeared this stuff on and then touched any part of my body at any time during the day and then touched my eyes or contact, it was alll over. Yeeeouch!
I know some people on animals board tried to make this stuff injectable, but it was supposedly very painful. Impure? ..or just the nature of the active ingredient?
Perhaps if one were to extract the "gunk" out of the bulk powder and then try to process. Supposedly the 1-test and any dione will go into solution relatively easily once this extraction has been performed. Perhaps an experiment is in order?
Incidently, diols are particularly difficult to get into solution.
