Oral hormones don't get into the blood stream easily or predictably. Many have to resort to periodic injections. Potratz discusses some novel approaches to increased absorption and bioavailability.

anyone know if grape seed extract can help somewhat with bio availability like the juice?

Is it me or are they saying that otherwise injectable hormones can be taken orally provided grapefruit juice is also consumed?

I dont really get it if this is the case as most web sources say not to orally consume otherwise injectable hormones as they will just be destroyed before they can be absorbed.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

As for the website mentioned - the products spoken of sound impressive, but I am always skeptical of products that are seen to be safe or safer or naturally occuring. This they may be, but as effective - judging by prohoromones I doubt it, and even some sources argue that some prohormones are much worse on the liver than AS.

Interesting show nontheless.

I fell asleep after the first 4 1/2 minutes. So what happened in the end?

I can personally attest to the statements given about the varying bioavailability of the certain orals mentioned near the end of the interview...(th e example of the study of the 19-nor prohormones)
