 Steroid Active Half Life

A drug's half life is the time required for a drug to be reduced to half of the original administered dose once in the body,or the time required for the activity of a substance taken into the body to lose one half its initial effectiveness.

The concept of steroid half-lives is extremely important to understand, because it allows the individual to understand the amount of time a particular anabolic steroid or drug is actively remaining in the body after administration. This will assist the individual in better planning and organizing his or her cycle appropriately, and understand how to properly time the administration of the anabolic steroids so as to achieve the most effective, comfortable, and safe cycle. 

Anabolic steroid half-lives are affected by a few different factors, the three primary of which are: route of administration, esterification, and resistance to metabolism.

Below a list of half-lifes of the most commonly used steroids, esters and ancillary compounds.
