Tren. hexahydrobenzylcarbonate steroid profile

Description:

Trenbolone hexahydrobenzylcarbonate is a slow-acting
injectable ester of the potent anabolic steroid trenbolone.
Trenbolone appears most commonly as trenbolone acetate,
which is a much faster-acting form of the drug
The hexahydrobenzylcarbonate ester used here extends the
release of trenbolone for more than 2 weeks, which has
always been thought of as more suitable for human use due to
the less frequent injection schedule. The base steroid
trenbolone is roughly three times more androgenic than
testosterone, making it a fairly potent androgen. It also
displays about 3 times greater tissue-building activity in
comparison to its androgenic properties, making its official
classification as that of an anabolic steroid. The musclebuilding
effect of trenbolone is often compared to such
popular bulking agents as testosterone or Dianabol, but
without the same estrogenrelated side effects. It is most
commonly identified as a lean-mass-building drug, and is
extremely popular with athletes for its ability to promote the
rapid buildup of strength, muscle size, and definition.

Side Effects of Parabolan:

Parabolan is not what we’d call the most side effect friendly anabolic steroid. Side effects of Parabolan are undoubtedly possible, but they are often blown way out of proportion. This is a common practice by those who hold to an anti-steroid sentiment, but in the case of the side effects of Parabolan it’s often steroid users who are the biggest offenders. This steroid will carry some very common possible steroid side effects. However, it will also carry a few that while possible tend to be a bit unique to the Trenbolone hormone. Such effects are highly dependent on response. Dose can play a role but response is the primary factor. Because these effects will be pronounced strongly many have begun to inaccurately assume that their Trenbolone is no good if such effects do not occur. This is an insane way of thinking. Others assume the steroid should not be used unless you have years of anabolic steroid experience. Again, this is insane thinking. If you are a poor responder you’ll be a poor responder in your first year of steroid use or your twentieth. In order to understand the side effects of Parabolan, we have separated them into their respected categories along with everything you need to know.

Estrogenic:

Parabolan does not aromatize and carries no estrogenic activity. However, estrogenic side effects are still possible with this steroid due to a strong progestin nature. Water retention will not be a concern, but gynecomastia will be possible in some men depending on sensitivity. While there is no estrogenic activity, progesterone has the ability to simulate the estrogenic mechanism in the mammary tissue leading to gynecomastia. In order to protect from such action, some men may need an anti-estrogen medication, but many will be fine without it. Again, sensitivity will be the primary issue.

Androgenic:

The Trenbolone hormone is highly androgenic, and as a result, the side effects of Parabolan can include strong related effects. Such side effects of Parabolan include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. Such effects will be linked to genetic predispositions but they are quite possible in many men who use the hormone. To combat such side effects, some will be tempted to use a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. However, the Trenbolone hormone is not metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme and related inhibitors will have no notable affect in reducing the androgenicity of the hormone.

Due to the androgenic nature of Parabolan, virilization symptoms are very possible when women supplement with this steroid. Virilization symptoms can include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. Most women who use this steroid will experience such symptoms at some level even with low doses. It is very possible to reverse such symptoms if use is discontinued at their onset, but they will often become permanent if allowed to set in. For this reason, most women are encouraged to seek out steroids with lower virilization ratings if anabolic steroids are to be used. Such compounds commonly include Anavar (Oxandrolone) and Primobolan (Methenolone) as well as Winstrol (Stanozolol) and possibly Equipoise (Boldenone Undecylenate) at low doses.

 

Cardiovascular:

Parabolan can have a notable adverse effect on cholesterol. It’s not as strong as many anabolic steroids, especially most oral steroids but it is notable enough. High blood pressure is also possible, but cholesterol will be the primary issue. For this reason a healthy lifestyle, one that is cholesterol friendly is imperative when supplementing with the Trenbolone hormone. If you already suffer from high cholesterol or blood pressure you should not use this steroid. If you are healthy enough for use, you should ensure your diet is cholesterol friendly, low in saturated fats and simple sugars and rich in omega fatty acids. You should also ensure you include plenty of cardiovascular training into your routine. Maintaining your health is very important when using anabolic steroids and it is more than possible with this steroid, but it will take some effort on your part.
Testosterone:

All anabolic steroids suppress natural testosterone production. However, the rate of suppression varies greatly from one steroid to the next. In the case of Trenbolone the rate of suppression will be extreme. For this reason, all men who supplement with Parabolan are encouraged to include exogenous testosterone in their plan. Failure to include exogenous testosterone will result in a low testosterone condition. Such a condition can come with numerous bothersome symptoms that can affect your physical, mental and sexual wellbeing. Many inaccurately assume if they do not suffer from the sexually related symptoms their levels are not low, but this simply isn’t true. Further, such a condition is extremely unhealthy. Including exogenous testosterone is imperative.

Once all anabolic steroid use comes to an end, your natural testosterone production will begin again. At the conclusion of the cycle, most are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan. This will stimulate natural production to a greater rate and greatly reduce the overall recovery time. It will not bring your levels back to normal on its own. There’s no PCT plan on earth that can do this. However, it will improve the recovery rate and ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise.

An important note, natural recovery assumes no prior existing low testosterone condition. It also assumes no severe damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) due to improper use or irresponsible supplementation practices.
Hepatotoxic:

The Trenbolone hormone is generally not a hepatotoxic steroid. A level of toxicity is possible but appears to be limited to extremely high doses of the steroid. Most who use Parabolan will not experience any stress or damage to the liver.

Response:

The final side effects of Parabolan include four reactions that are predominantly due to a poor response to the hormone. If you are a positive responder, it may be possible to fall prey to such effects with extremely high doses. However, a true negative responder will often find such effects occur regardless of the dose. The response base side effects of Parabolan include anxiety, insomnia, night sweats and rapid heart rate, and they can be very extreme. They can be so pronounced there will be some who cannot use the Trenbolone hormone. While most men will tolerate the hormone fairly well, more men will not be able to use Trenbolone more so than most anabolic steroids.

Due to the response side effect of Parabolan, when you use the Trenbolone hormone for the first time the only one you should use is Trenbolone Acetate. If the response effects occur at a high rate, you can discontinue use and they will fade away in a few days. If you are using Parabolan, due to its large ester you will have to wait a few weeks for the adverse effects to dissipate even after discontinuation.

Strongest Anabolic Steroid

You probably are familiar with other mass building products such as testosterone. This hormone is known to be quite effective and helps many athletes, bodybuilders as well as weightlifters bulk up fast and maintains their agility.

But, did you know that Parabolan is much stronger than testosterone? When stacked, its androgenic properties are five times as strong as testosterone while its anabolic scores are four times better than testosterone. Consuming 200mg of Trenbolone will have same effects as consuming 1000mg of testosterone.

Trenbolone enanthate steroid profile

Steroid Action

Trenbolone Enanthate is a19-nor steroid, very similar to Nandrolone. The primary difference between Trenbolone is that there is a double carbon bond present at the 9 and 11 position on the steran nucleus. Trenbolone can not aromatize to estrogen nor be 5a-reduced.

It bonds very tightly to the Androgen Receptor, and for this reason it is thought that much of its fat-burning and muscle building abilities are receptor mediated.

Side Effects of Trenbolone Enanthate:

Trenbolone Enanthate is not what we’d call the most side effect friendly anabolic steroid of all time. There are many possible side effects of Trenbolone Enanthate use, but possible is the key word. The side effects of Trenbolone Enanthate with one exception are not guaranteed. Many of the possible side effects are very similar to many other anabolic steroids and most should find they are very easy to control. However, there are certain response side effects of Trenbolone Enanthate that will keep many from being able to use this hormone. There will be more who cannot use the Trenbolone hormone perhaps more so than any anabolic steroid. However, the majority of men should still tolerate the hormone well despite a stronger number not being able to use it compared to most steroids. In order to help you understand the possible side effects of Trenbolone Enanthate, we have broken them down into their separate categories along with all the information you’ll need.
[1] Estrogenic:

Trenbolone Enanthate is not estrogenic in that it does not aromatize. There is no testosterone to estrogen conversion with this hormone making water retention impossible due to use. However, the hormone does carry a strong progestin nature, which can make gynecomastia a concern, especially in sensitive individuals. When combined with the use of an aromatizing steroid, this appears to increase the risk. Progesterone has the ability to stimulate the estrogenic mechanism in the mammary tissue, which in turn can promote gynecomastia. In order to combat this issue, some men will need an anti-estrogen.

When it comes to Tren produced gynecomastia, there has been a prevailing myth that has been passed around message boards for years. The myth simply states that it’s the possible prolactin buildup caused by Trenbolone that leads to gynecomastia, but this simply isn’t true. William Llewellyn has largely dispelled this myth showing the intrinsic relationship between estrogen and progesterone imbalances and their effects on the mammary tissue. In his Anabolics series, you will find he goes into great detail explaining this issue.
[2] Androgenic:

Trenbolone Enanthate is highly androgenic, which can lead to acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. The androgenic side effects of Trenbolone are, however, highly dependent on genetic predispositions. If you are not predisposed to male pattern baldness, losing any hair will be impossible. If you are not normally acne sensitive, the odds of any related problem during use is unlikely.

Those who are sensitive to the androgenic side effects of Trenbolone Enanthate will often attempt to combat them with a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. This is very common and is also a waste of time. Such inhibitors, Finasteride being primary, are commonly used to reduce the androgenicity of a steroid that is brought on by a reduction of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This is all caused by the hormone being metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, but Trenbolone is not metabolized by this enzyme. As a result, the use of any related inhibitor will have very little to no affect on the hormone’s androgenicity.
[3] Cardiovascular:

The possible cardiovascular side effects of Trenbolone Enanthate are by far the most concerning. In the present moment of use many are often far more concerned with gynecomastia, but this is merely a visual issue. Cardiovascular issues can directly and negatively affect your health. The primary area of concern will surround cholesterol. Tren can increased LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) levels and suppress/reduce HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) levels. This cholesterol strain should not be as strong as many oral steroids, but potentially more severe than most injectable steroids.

In order to control your cholesterol, living a healthy lifestyle is imperative. A healthy lifestyle should include a cholesterol friendly diet that is low in saturated fats and simple sugars and abundant in omega fatty acids. Supplementing daily with large amounts of fish oils is normally advised. The individual should also ensure he implements plenty of cardiovascular activity on a regular basis and this includes off-season periods of growth. Do not buy into the idea that cardio is damaging to your off-season gains. You do not have to implement contest style cardio programs during your off-season but a regular amount for your health is recommended. This will, however, actually help you with off-season growth. It will keep your metabolism even stronger, minimize off-season fat gain and lead to a better physique. If you already have high cholesterol or cannot maintain a healthy cholesterol level during use you should not use this anabolic steroid.

Trenbolone Enanthate can also have a negative impact on blood pressure. The odds are in most men’s favor, especially since water retention, a primary promoter of high blood pressure is impossible with this steroid. However, high blood pressure is possible and you should keep an eye on it. Most healthy adult men will be fine if they live a healthy lifestyle.
[4] Testosterone:

All anabolic steroids will suppress natural testosterone production; however, the rate of suppression varies greatly from one steroid to the next. In the case of Trenbolone Enanthate, suppression will be dramatic and will not be affected by genetics. Due to the powerful rate of suppression all men who supplement with Trenbolone are strongly encouraged to include exogenous testosterone into their plan. Those who do not include exogenous testosterone will fall into a low testosterone state. Low testosterone comes with numerous possible symptoms. Sexually related symptoms are the most common, such as erectile dysfunction and suppressed libido, but they are far from the only ones. It is actually possible to suffer from low testosterone without sexually related symptoms and while the symptoms are not directly life threatening the condition is extremely unhealthy. The form of testosterone you choose is inconsequential. All that matters is you provide your body with this essential hormone.

Once the use of all anabolic steroids comes to an end natural testosterone production will begin again on its own. However, you will be at a low testosterone level for quite sometime. This can begin to produce low testosterone symptoms, which can include a loss of muscle mass and strength. It is very easy for cortisol to become dominant during this phase. For this reason, most men are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan if they are going to be off-cycle for any decent length of time.

A PCT plan will stimulate natural testosterone production and greatly reduce the total recovery time. There is, however, no PCT plan on earth that will get you back to normal on its own, this will still take time. However, such a plan will ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise.

Important notes on natural testosterone recovery; natural recovery assumes no prior low testosterone condition existed. It also assumes there was no severe damage done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) due to the improper use of anabolic steroids.
[5] Hepatotoxicity:

Trenbolone Enanthate is not what we’d traditionally consider a hepatotoxic anabolic steroid. However, there does appear to be a level of toxicity associated with extremely high doses, but such doses are extremely high and far beyond what even most hardcore bodybuilders would attempt. The average Trenbolone user should not experience any hepatic stress or damage.
[6] Response:

There are four possible side effects of Trenbolone Enanthate that are 100% based on individual response and the subject of numerous myths surrounding the hormone. The effects have become such a topic of debate on many message boards that some believe if you don’t experience them your Tren must be no good. Not only is this ridiculous but it’s a borderline insane way of thinking. Successful use of any anabolic steroid not only refers to progress made but progress made without side effects or issues of concern. However, it will be the response based side effects of Trenbolone Enanthate that will keep some men from being able to use this hormone. In some cases, lowering the dose can fix the problem, but many who suffer will find that such effects occur even at low doses. The response effects include anxiety, insomnia, night sweats and rapid heart rate. They can also be so strong that they become unbearable. If a low dose of Tren causes such effects in you the hormone is probably not for you. If such effects occur, the best course of action is to discontinue use and try again later on at a lower dose. If problems still occur, this hormone is in no way for you. That may seem unfair but it’s life. Everyone has varying reactions to various hormones, medicines and even foods.

Because of the possible response side effects of Trenbolone, Trenbolone Enanthate is not recommended for first time users. Your first go with the hormone should always be Trenbolone Acetate, which most will prefer anyway. However, if you choose the Enanthate version your first time, run into problems and discontinue use you will still have to wait every bit of three weeks or more for the effects to dissipate. If you choose the Acetate version and run into problems, you can discontinue use and see them fade in a few days.

Why Choose Trenbolone-Enanthate?

The Trenbolone hormone is perfect for any cycle, for other than testosterone there is no anabolic steroid that is as versatile. Tren can provide excellent buildups in mass and strength, lean your physique out, enhance conditioning, preserve tissue and promote recovery quite unlike any anabolic steroid. All Trenbolone forms can do the same, so the question it hand is why choose Trenbolone-Enanthate? Right off the bat we can tell you if you’ve never supplemented with Tren before you need to start with the Acetate ester. If you’ve never supplemented before, there’s no way to know how well you’ll respond to the hormone, and if you respond poorly you don’t want to be supplementing with Trenbolone-Enanthate. If harsh side-effects occur and you’re supplementing with the Enanthate version, you will have to wait several weeks for them to dissipate after use is discontinued. Conversely, if you’re supplementing with the small ester Acetate, if side-effects become problematic you can discontinue use and see them dissipate in only a few days.

Again, it begs the question, why supplement with Trenbolone-Enanthate over other Tren forms? The only reason one would choose the Enanthate version over any other Tren form is based on injection frequency. If you supplement with Trenbolone-Acetate, you’re going to have to inject on an every other day basis. Some will even inject on a daily basis due to the short half-life, but every other day is more than sufficient. If you supplement with Parabolan, you’re going to find a 2-3 times per week schedule to be warranted, with 3 times per week being optimal. However, Parabolan is extremely expensive, the original is no longer made, and this form is commonly counterfeited and simply not as available as the Acetate version. At any rate, if you choose Trenbolone-Enanthate you’ll be able to limit yourself to two injections per week. In truth, you might be able to get by with one injection every five days, but two times per week will be optimal. In any case, there is truly no true advantage over this version of Tren in-terms of direct performance, and anyone who claims there is has suffered from some placebo type effect, or simply doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

Tren Enanthate PCT

After you run a Trenbolone Enanthate cycle, you will definitely want to start a post-cycle therapy (PCT). Post-cycle therapies seek to restore the body’s hormone balance by allowing the natural production of testosterone to return to normal levels. In PCT, the use of aromatase inhibitors and Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERM) accomplishes this goal.

Clomid and Novaldex are two examples of the drugs you’ll take. How much and for how long depends on the length of your Trenbolone Enanthate cycle and the size of the dosage of Tren E.

Trenbolone Enanthate was never prescribed clinically for use in humans, though a French pharmaceutical company developed a different ester of Trenbolone for use in humans, which is no longer produced. The existing use is strictly in veterinary uses, which should alert you to be extremely cautious in using the drug to avoid Trenbolone Enanthate side effects. When you finally buy your Trenbolone pills or injection, ask the supplier to provide safety instructions for using their product.

Half-life

On it’s own, the base trenbolone hormone has a half-life of about 6-8 hours. Although not many bodybuilders use the base hormone. Most athlete are injecting a version of trenbolone that has an ester chain attached to it, and it is not until plasma lipases in the blood stream cleave off the ester chain that trenbolone is free to interact with androgen receptors in muscle cells. The active half-life of the acetate ester version is of about 48 hours, while the enanthate version is about 5-7 days. The Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate (Cyclohexylmethylcarbonate) ester chain being the longest at 8-10 days. Though, due to the lack of scientific consensus, some of these figures can be off by about 10-20%.

Trenbolone acetate steroid profile

Legal status

Bodybuilders and athletes have been known to use the drug illicitly because they experience an increase in body mass more effectively than by weight training alone and because of its reputation as a fat-burning, as well as bulking agent. In the United States, possession or use of trenbolone for humans is a violation of federal law. The DEA classifies trenbolone as a schedule III drug. Trenbolone is classified as a Schedule 4 drug in Canada and a class C drug with no penalty for personal use or possession in the United Kingdom. Use or possession of steroids without a prescription is a crime in Australia.

Side Effects of Trenbolone Acetate:

There are certainly some possible side effects to Trenbolone Acetate use, but possible is an important word to note. Over the years, and this is more than apparent on steroid message boards, an idea has been passed along that the side effects of Trenbolone Acetate are assured. In fact, some actually believe that if they don’t occur it must be due to a poor product. Not only is this a ridiculous way of thinking, it really doesn’t make any sense. Trenbolone, while tremendously powerful, is not some strange steroid from the 5th dimension. Remember, it’s simply an altered form of Nandrolone, which itself is simply an altered form of the primary male androgen testosterone. While the possible side effects of Trenbolone Acetate are often blown out of proportion, we cannot call this the most side effect friendly anabolic steroid of all time but most certainly not the unfriendliest. Many of the possible side effects of Trenbolone Acetate will be very similar to many anabolic steroids and just as controllable. Many will also be largely dependent on genetic predispositions and sensitivity. However, when it comes to sensitivity there is a group of what we can call response side effects that are a little unique to the Trenbolone hormone. There will be those who experience such effects while many will not. Unfortunately, the response effects will keep many from being able to use this steroid. In fact, while most men will be fine there will be more men who cannot use Tren than perhaps any anabolic steroid. However, keep in mind the response effects of Trenbolone Acetate are in no way an indicator of the hormone working. If you’re a fantastic responder, you shouldn’t have any issue at all. In order to help you understand the possible side effects of Trenbolone Acetate, we have broken them down into their separate categories along with all the information you’ll need.

Estrogenic: Trenbolone is not estrogenic. This anabolic steroid does not aromatize at all, which is the very reason excess water retention is impossible with this steroid. However, gynecomastia is still possible due to the hormone carrying a strong progestin nature. Progesterone has the ability to stimulate the estrogenic mechanism in the mammary tissue, which can promote gynecomastia. Many men will not have an issue, but an individual’s sensitivity to gynecomastia will play a role. Anti-estrogens will provide protection for those who need it.

An important note: for many years, it has been assumed that Tren based gynecomastia was due to a buildup in prolactin. However, this has been proven false largely thanks to the work of William Llewellyn. In fact, his study on the issue has largely been conclusive; it is the progestin nature, not prolactin, that causes . Llewellyn has also noted that the use of aromatizing steroids with Trenbolone greatly increases the odds of gynecomastia, often making the use of an anti-estrogen a necessity.

Androgenic: Tren is a highly androgenic hormone and as to be expected there are possible androgenic side effects of Trenbolone Acetate. Such effects include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness, and body hair growth. While such effects are possible they are entirely dependent on your genetics. For example, if you are not predisposed to male pattern baldness it will be impossible for you to lose any of your hair. However, if you are predisposed, while you were going to lose it anyway, the rate of loss will be accelerated. In fact, Tren can be one of the unfriendliest steroids to the hairline in predisposed men.

Due to the androgenicity of Trenbolone, some will try 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride to gain protection. However, the 5-alpha reductase enzyme does not metabolize the Trenbolone hormone and related inhibitors will have very little if any effect. You will not be able to reduce the androgenicity of this hormone, which should be kept in mind if such effects are a concern for you.

Cardiovascular: The side effects of Trenbolone Acetate in this category can be a concern for some men. This steroid can have a strong, negative impact on cholesterol by suppressing HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and increasing LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). This negative effect on cholesterol should not be as strong as most oral anabolic steroids, but it will be far more pronounced than most injectable steroids. It is controllable, but it will take a concentrated effort. A cholesterol friendly lifestyle is imperative, which means a cholesterol friendly diet rich in omega fatty acids, low in saturated fats, and low in simple sugars. It also means incorporating regular cardiovascular activity into your routine, even during off-season periods of growth. Do not buy into the idea that cardio is a bad idea during the off-season. That is a myth that has done more harm than good. Many are also encouraged to include a cholesterol antioxidant supplement when using Trenbolone.

Trenbolone Acetate can also have a negative impact on blood pressure. However, it does not appear to negatively affect most healthy adult men in this way. Regardless, it is possible and you should keep an eye on it. If you cannot control your blood pressure, you should discontinue use immediately.

Testosterone: Regardless of the purpose of use, your genetics or rumors you may have heard, the side effects of Trenbolone Acetate will always include natural testosterone suppression. All anabolic steroids suppress natural testosterone production, but the rate of suppression varies greatly from one steroid to the next. In the case of Tren, it will be more than significant. It will be nearly impossible not to fall into a low testosterone state without the inclusion of exogenous testosterone. Include exogenous testosterone during your cycle and this problem is solved.

Once your cycle ends and all the exogenous hormones have cleared your system, natural testosterone production will begin again on its own. However, natural levels will still be very low, and it will take a good bit of time to reach a full recovery. For this reason, most are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan. A PCT plan will stimulate natural testosterone recovery and ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise. This will not promote a full recovery on its own, that will still take time, but it will shorten the process. It will also ensure cortisol does not become the dominant hormone when testosterone levels are low for an extended period of time. If cortisol becomes dominant, this can destroy your physique. Some important notes on natural testosterone recovery: natural recovery assumes no prior low testosterone state existed. It also assumes severe damage was not done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) due to improper anabolic steroid use. Another important note is while a PCT plan is very beneficial, being off of the cycle for a short period of time is counterproductive. This should be kept in mind in hardcore circles.

Hepatotoxicity: On its surface, Trenbolone Acetate is not considered a hepatotoxic anabolic steroid. Most should have no issues with liver stress or damage. However, the hormone does appear to provide a level of toxicity with extremely high doses, but it appears to take doses that are far beyond what most any human would ever undertake. The odds of any hepatic stress are extremely rare.

Response Effects: The final side effects of Trenbolone Acetate surround those that will keep some from using the hormone. On their surface they don’t sound too bad, but they can occur in a way that is beyond dramatic. The response side effects of Trenbolone Acetate include anxiety, insomnia, night sweats, and rapid heart rate. If such effects occur, lowering the dose can sometimes help. Extremely high doses can cause these effects, but a lot of men will find they occur at any dose. If this is the case, the hormone may not be for you. It may seem unfair but that’s life. Some can take Aspirin and some can’t; many can drink milk but others can’t. This is just a part of life.

Side Effects

The most common side-effects reported by trenbolone users are:

Aggression and temper.
Night Sweats.
Decreased cardio endurance.
Dark colored urine.
Loss of hair, where there is no genetic predisposition for it.
Inability to reach a climax during intercourse, or sometimes total impotence.
Gynecomastia has been reported in rare cases.
Coughing spells or shortness of breath following an injection. Also known as “tren cough”.

What Does it Do?

Tren Acetate behaves like many other anabolic steroids. It enhances your body’s ability to synthesize protein and it helps your muscle tissue retain more nitrogen. When your body is able to create proteins more quickly, and when the building blocks for those proteins (namely nitrogen) are available in abundance, you can experience muscle growth on an epic scale. Aside from this, Trenbolone Acetate will also work to promote insulin-like growth factor, which is responsible for repairing and rejuvenating tissues throughout your body. It also increases red blood count significantly; with more red blood cells, you can better oxygenate your muscles and provide them a prime environment for growth.

Testosterone undecanoate steroid profile

Testosterone undecanoate

Testosterone undecanoate or testosterone undecylate is an ester of testosterone. This hormone is used in androgen replacement therapy primarily for the treatment of male hypogonadism, and is currently under research for use as a male contraceptive. It is sold and distributed under the brand names Aveed, Andriol, Undestor, Nebido, Pantestone, Restandol, Cernos Depot, Nebido-R and Reandron 1000.

Underground labs and their brand names

There are countless of underground producers of Testosterone Propionate. Some are proper labs who follow good manufacturing practices and have adequate equipment operated by knowledgable staff. Majority however are just “bathtub pharmacies” created in someone’s back room. They order raw materials from Asia, mix it together and repackage into vials – the end user can only hope it was done in sterile environment.

There are too many underground brands to list and new one are created more or less daily. Some of the names are:

Pharmacology

Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group. Testosterone is primarily secreted from the testes of males. In females, it is produced in the ovaries, adrenal glands and by conversion of adrostenedione in the periphery. It is the principal male sex hormone and an anabolic steroid. In both males and females, it plays key roles in health and well-being. Examples include enhanced libido, energy, immune function, and protection against osteoporosis. On average, the adult male body produces about twenty times the amount of testosterone than an adult female’s body does. In the body, this ester form of testosterone is hydrolyzed rapidly and become actively available as testosterone.
Testosterone Propionate is a short acting oil-based injectable formulation of testosterone. Testosterone inhibits gonadotropin secretion from the pituitary gland and ablates estrogen production in the ovaries, thereby decreasing endogenous estrogen levels. In addition, this agent promotes the maintenance of male sex characteristics and is indicated for testosterone replacement in hypogonadal males. (NCI04)

Background

Testosterone was the first anabolic steroid developed, in the 1930’s. It has been used as the most potent mass builder for decades. Brand names of testosterone propionate include “Testovis” and “Virormone.”

Testosterone mix steroid profile

Sustanon – Testosterone Mix

It is oil mixture of four testosterone ester.
Sustanon is almost identical as Omnadren. But in Sustanon is extra testosterone isocaproate and testosterone decanoate.
Sustanon is produced in Egypt, the Netherlands, Turkey, Pakistan.

Sustanon has been working since the first day due to testosterone propionate and phenylpropionate.
As a final act ceases ester decanaote around third to fourth week after administration.

Sustanon is among middle androgens cause acne, increased aggression and sexual desire.
After completion of bark Sustanon is a need to take HCG, Clomid. Dale Sustanon causes water retention in the body.

DOSAGE

Beginners use a dose of 400 mg per week, which is the standard testosterone injection once a week. This dose should produce dramatic increases in strength and muscle mass. Intermediate users will generally make much progress at doses of 400-8000 mg per week. Advanced users will make great progress at the same dosage as intermediate users, and rarely need to rise above this amount. In any case, advanced users tend to use T-400 ranging from 400 to 1200 mg per week. Detection time of T-400 in urine is 4-6 months.

Testosterone izobutyrate steroid profile

Background and facts

Now that we understand the history, we can discuss what makes this compound so interesting.  The Isobutyrate ester of this form of testosterone comes in a water base, just like the suspension.  Even though both are water based, they are different in their action mode.  For instance, the suspension is very fast acting and short lived, so it requires daily injections.  Meanwhile, Testosterone isobutyrate has a much slower release rate, and only requires an injection every 1-2 weeks.

Testosterone isobutyrate

Testosterone Isobutyrate is an four-carbon ester form of Testosterone. The number of ester carbon atoms correlate with the half-life of the prodrug. Testosterone inhibits gonadotropin secretion from the pituitary gland and ablates estrogen production in the ovaries, thereby decreasing endogenous estrogen levels. In addition, this agent promotes the maintenance of male sex characteristics and is indicated for testosterone replacement in hypogonadal males. (NCI04)

Format and packaging

Agovirin Depot is most commonly available in a box and packed in 2 ml ampoules (5 blisters per box), each ampoule containing each 25 mg / ml testosterone mixed in a crystalline water-based solution.

Agovirin Depot is water based, so the steroid (which is oily) and water will separate naturally when at rest. For accurate dosing, we must shake the box to deliver the active substance suspended in water.

Testosterone enanthate steroid profile

Testosterone Enanthate Administration

To treat low testosterone, standard Testosterone Enanthate doses will fall in the 100-200mg every 7-10 day range most commonly. However, some physicians will split the total dosing up and administer it every five days. Less common in the U.S. some physicians will prescribe doses of 200-400mg every 2-3 weeks and in some cases every 4 weeks. This is very inefficient but a practice some follow. The total duration of treatment will be indefinite. Most men who need low testosterone treatment will need it for life. This may sound annoying but ask yourself an important question; would you rather suffer from low testosterone or treat it?

In a performance enhancement setting, common Testosterone Enanthate doses will fall in the 200-500mg per week range. 200-250mg per week is very common if the hormone is only being used to combat natural testosterone suppression caused by the use of other anabolic steroids. For a true anabolic effect, most men will find 400-500mg per week to be highly effective and very easy to control. Such doses will normally be split into two equal doses per week for a total weekly dosing. Doses can go higher than 500mg per week; however, many men will find the 500mg range to be all they need. If more is desired, many men will find 600-1,000mg per week can be tolerated and controlled but doses that approach the 1,000mg mark will greatly increase the probability of adverse effects. How much testosterone a man can tolerate and control will vary from one man to the next. However, most men will find doses above 1,000mg per week all but guarantee side effects at some level.

Regardless of your purpose of use, Testosterone Enanthate stacks well with all anabolic steroids. There is, however, no reason to stack it with another testosterone. This would be pointless in most cases. Simply choose other steroids that meet the desired purpose of use most efficiently.

Technical Data

Testosterone’s anabolic/androgenic effects are dependant upon the dose administered; usually the higher the dose, the better the results (1).

In a study done on Testosterone Enanthate, a dose as high as 600 mg’s produced better results in subjects compared to those who received lower doses. The most fat was lost and lean body mass, strength and size was gained by the group who used the highest dose (600 mg/week), when compared to any of the lower doses studied (2). In the same study, HDL cholesterol was lowered and some acne was experienced by the subjects. There was roughly a 15% gain in Lean Body Mass from 20 weeks of 600mgs/week of testosterone enanthate. HDL cholesterol was also lowered and the subjects experienced acne.

Overall, the most common effect reported by subjects using testosterone is gains in strength (3) and typically, testosterone is implicated in positive alterations in size, shape, and appearance of muscle (4).

Due to stimulation of the Androgen Receptors (AR), accelerated muscle gain, fat loss, increased muscle repair and growth is experienced by those using injectable testosterone (5),(6). Testosterone can also binds to the AR on fat cells; therefore, adipose (fat) tissue can be broken down more readily and new fat formation is prevented (7). It is thought, therefore, that many of testosterone’s effects are receptor mediated; although many effects are also non-receptor mediated.

While using injectable Testosterone Enanthate, since the body is building muscle at an accelerated rate, more foodstuffs are shuttled directly to the muscle tissue (this is known as nutrient portioning) and away from fat. This is another indirect effect of testosterone on fat loss. Testosterone also promotes glycogen synthesis, which is activated by insulin in response to high glucose levels (8), thus allowing someone using testosterone to more efficiently utilize food as fuel.

Testosterone-Enanthate Cycles & Doses

Regardless of the reason of use you will be hard pressed to find a more perfect steroid well-suited for all purposes regarding anabolic steroid use. Be it cutting or bulking or simply a desire to gain an added athletic edge Testosterone-Enanthate will provide what you are looking for. For most who are beginning anabolic steroid use 500mg of Testosterone-Enanthate will prove to be nothing short of perfect; moreover, as this is a highly effective dose it is a dose many will never surpass as it is often all that is needed and generally very well tolerated. As testosterone will in most cases necessarily be the foundation of any cycle or even used alone, regardless of the stack two weekly injections of equal doses will prove to be efficient and provide stable testosterone levels. Interestingly enough many competitive bodybuilders, especially in recent years have begun administering the hormone every other day in smaller doses spread out over the week. While this proves to be unnecessary when we look at the hormone and its active half-life, as is not unusual in the anabolic world, sometimes reality and what’s on paper do not match up perfectly. Many of these competitive bodybuilders report a more stable feeling; that’s right, they simply feel better and ask any athlete and they’ll tell you that’s often the name of the game.

While 500mg per week is a standard dose many individuals will choose to use more. 1,000mg per week is far from uncommon and can in many cases be safely used. Further, especially in bodybuilding and power lifting circles doses that surpass 1,000mg are not all that rare but there is an important factor you must understand. Most all anabolic androgenic steroids carry with them a risk to reward ratio; the greater the dose often the greater the results; however, the greater the dose the greater the potential is for negative side-effects. In the end responsible use will always prove to be key but always understand the effects of abuse are on you and you alone.

As for your Testosterone-Enanthate cycle, most will find 8 weeks of use to be the bear minimum with 16 weeks being far more efficient. Regardless of your duration of use a solid post cycle therapy (PCT) plan must be in place. Because Testosterone-Enanthate is a long ester based testosterone you will necessarily begin PCT 3 weeks after your final injection, which may include hCG, Nolva and/or Clomid. Those who use hCG are advised to begin use approximately ten days before Nolva/Comid for approximately ten days of use.

 

Testosterone cypionate steroid profile

General information

American athletes have a long a fond relationship with Testosterone cypionate. While Testosterone enanthate is manufactured widely throughout the world, cypionate seems to be almost exclusively an American item. It is therefore not surprising that American athletes particularly favor this testosterone ester. But many claim this is not just a matter of simple pride, often swearing cypionate to be a superior product, providing a bit more of a “kick” than enanthate. At the same time it is said to produce a slightly higher level of water retention, but not enough for it to be easily discerned. Of course when we look at the situation objectively, we see these two steroids are really interchangeable, and cypionate is not at all superior. Both are long acting oil-based injectables, which will keep testosterone levels sufficiently elevated for approximately two weeks. Enanthate may be slightly better in terms of testosterone release, as this ester is one carbon atom lighter than cypionate (remember the ester is calculated in the steroids total milligram weight). The difference is so insignificant however that no one can rightly claim it to be noticeable (we are maybe talking a few milligrams per shot). Regardless, cypionate came to be the most popular testosterone ester on the U.S. black market for a very long time.

As with all testosterone injectables, one can expect a considerable gain in muscle mass and strength during a cycle. Since testosterone has a notably high affinity for estrogen conversion, the mass gained from this drug is likely to be accompanied by a discernible level of water retention. The resulting loss of definition of course makes cypionate a very poor choice for dieting or cutting phases. The excess level of estrogen brought about by this drug can also cause one to develop gynecomastia rather quickly. Should the user notice an uncomfortable soreness, swelling or lump under the nipple, an ancillary drug like Proviron® and/or Nolvadex® should probably be added. This will minimize the effect of estrogen greatly, making the steroid much more tolerable to use. The powerful antiaromatase Arimidex® is yet a better choice, but the high price tag prevents it from being more popularly used. Those who have a known sensitivity to estrogen may find it more beneficial to use ancillary drugs like Proviron® and Nolvadex® from the onset of the cycle, in order to prevent estrogen related side effects before they become apparent.

Since testosterone is the primary male androgen, we should also expect to see pronounced androgenic side effects with this drug. Much intensity is related to the rate in which the body converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This, as you know, is the devious metabolite responsible for the high prominence of androgenic side effects associated with testosterone use. This includes the development of oily skin, acne, body/facial hair growth and male pattern balding. Those worried that they may have a genetic predisposition toward male pattern baldness may wish to avoid testosterone altogether. Others opt to add the ancillary drug Propecia®, which is a relatively new compound that prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (see: Proscar®). This can greatly reduce the chance for running into a hair loss problem, and will probably lower the intensity of other androgenic side effects. Although active in the body for much longer time, cypionate is injected on a weekly basis. This should keep blood levels relatively constant, although picky individuals may even prefer to inject this drug twice weekly. At a dosage of 200mg to 800mg per week we should certainly see dramatic results. It is interesting to note that while a large number of other steroidal compounds have been made available since testosterone injectables, they are still considered to be the dominant bulking agents among bodybuilders. There is little argument that these are among the most powerful mass drugs. While large doses are generally unnecessary, some bodybuilders have professed to using excessively high dosages of this drug. This was much more common before the 1990’s, when cypionate vials were usually very cheap and easy to find in the states. A “more is better” attitude is easy to justify when paying only $20 for a l0cc vial (today the typical price for a single injection). When taking dosages above 8001000mg per week there is little doubt that water retention will come to be the primary gain, far outweighing the new mass accumulation. The practice of “megadosing” is therefore inefficient, especially when we take into account the typical high cost of steroids today.

It is also important to remember that the use of an injectable testosterone will quickly suppress endogenous testosterone production. It may therefore be good advice to use a testosterone stimulating drug like HCG and/or Clomid®/Nolvadex® at the conclusion of a cycle. This should help the user avoid a strong “crash” due to hormonal imbalance, which can strip away much of the new muscle mass and strength. This is no doubt the reason why many athletes claim to be very disappointed with the final result of steroid use, as there is often only a slight permanent gain if anabolics are discontinued incorrectly. Of course we cannot expect to retain every pound of new bodyweight after a cycle. This is especially true whenever we are withdrawing a strong (aromatizing) androgen like testosterone, as a considerable drop in weight (and strength) is to be expected as retained water is excreted. This should not be of much concern; instead the user should focus on ancillary drug therapy so as to preserve the solid mass underneath. Another way athletes have found to lessen the “crash”, is to first replace the testosterone with a milder anabolic like Deca-Durabolin®. This steroid is administered alone, at a typical dosage (200-400mg per week), for the following month or two. In this “stepping down” procedure the user is attempting to turn the watery bulk of a strong testosterone into the more solid muscularity we see with nandrolone preparations. In many instances this practice proves to be very effective. Of course we must remember to still administer ancillary drugs at the conclusion, as endogenous testosterone production will not be rebounding during the Deca therapy. Cypionate can still be found on the black market in good volume. The U.S. generics such as Steris, Schein Geneva are long gone, but have been replaced with several new products. One of the most popular items to surface in the last two years is the Ttokkyo generic from Mexico. First available in 100mg/ml strength, and more recently 200mg/ml, this l0ml multi-dose provides an inexpensive replacement for the U.S. generics of yesterday. Seemingly in an effort to top Ttokkyo, Loeffler recently released its Cypriotest UA product. This comes in a dosage of 250 mg/ml, in a 10 ml vial. This is the highest dosage of cypionate ever to be developed, and has been getting a lot of attention in recent months as a result. Although not manufactured there, the Australian product Testo LA has been a popular import in Mexico lately as well. This boasts a dosage of only 100 mg/ml in a similarly sized vial. Also located on the black market are products that have been around for much longer, including Testex from Spain (100mg/2m1, 250mg/2ml), Deposteron (200mg/2ml) from Brazil, Miro Depo from Korea and Testosterona Ultra (200mg/ml, 5ml amp and 20m1 multi-dose vials) from Uruguay.

Side Effects of Testosterone Cypionate

Men taking testosterone cypionate may experience the following side effects:

nausea and vomiting
headache
increased or decreased sexual interest
changes in skin complexion
hair loss
acne
increase in water retention

In rare cases, some men experience more serious side effects. These include:

mood swings
anxiety
depression
difficulty sleeping
abdominal pain
trouble urinating
breast swelling or tenderness
prolonged or frequent erections
heart failure

Precautions

Testosterone replacement can have negative health effects on people in your life if the medicine is not used properly. Exposure to androgen hormones during pregnancy may affect a fetus’s development, and mothers who are nursing may pass androgens to children through the milk. This can cause premature sexual development. Children exposed to testosterone may experience premature sexual development also.

Testosteron propionate steroid profile

Testosterone Propionate

Testosterone is the primary male sex hormone. It is the responsible for producing mainly male-specific sexual traits. When synthesized, it is usually attached to an ester to delay its release into the body. Testosterone Propionate is the shortest commonly ester attached to the Testosterone hormone. This means it takes your body the least amount of time to rid itself of the ester and release the parent hormone into the body. Due to its short active life, testosterone propionate typically needs to be injected every other day at a minimum. Anecdotally, testosterone propionate causes the least side effects and the least bloating; these side effects usually subside very quickly when use is ceased.

Effects of Testosterone Propionate:

For the low testosterone patient, if you supplement with Testosterone Propionate you will suffer no more. This is the primary effect of Testosterone in this regard. Levels were low and now they’re not. Then we have the performance enhancing athlete, and as a versatile anabolic steroid the effects of Testosterone Propionate will cover a wide breadth in this category.

For the off-season athlete there is no anabolic steroid more important or beneficial than testosterone. High levels of testosterone will promote significant increases in lean muscle mass and strength. This is assuming that the individual is consuming adequate calories. Compounds like Testosterone Propionate are not magical, you will still need to feed your body enough calories. During an off-season period of growth, this means total caloric intake will need to be slightly above maintenance. This will, unfortunately, promote body fat gain. However, the key to a successful off-season is gaining lean tissue while minimizing body fat gain to the fullest extent possible. By supplementing with Testosterone Propionate you will be able to achieve this more efficiently. High testosterone levels will promote a stronger metabolic rate. This is not a license to eat like there’s no end in sight, but you should be able to make better use of your calories.

Then we have the cutting phase, and Testosterone Propionate can be invaluable here. In order to lose body fat we must burn more calories than we consume. You can follow the healthiest diet in the world and exercise yourself into the ground but if you are not in a caloric deficit you will not lose body fat. Unfortunately, this necessary caloric deficit puts our lean muscle tissue at risk, especially as we become leaner. The human body does not want to lose body fat due to its survival instinct. As energy demands increase during dieting the body will take what it needs from wherever it wants, and this is often from your muscle tissue. The key to successful dieting is not only losing fat but minimizing muscle tissue low. High testosterone levels will enable you to achieve this efficiently. Without an anabolic protectant like Testosterone Propionate, some lean muscle tissue loss will occur, this is a given. Due to the metabolic enhancement provided by high testosterone levels, the individual will also burn fat at a more efficient rate.

Regardless of your purpose of use, all who supplement with Testosterone Propionate will find their muscular endurance is greatly enhanced. You will not tire out as fast. You will also find your overall rate of recovery is greatly improved, and it is through recovery that progress is made. This makes Testosterone Propionate an excellent steroid for athletes who may not have any bulking or cutting in mind. The increases in endurance and recovery along with improved strength will simply lead to more effective athletic performance.

Side Effects of Testosterone Propionate:

Testosterone Propionate is a very well-tolerated anabolic steroid for most healthy adult men. Healthy is excluding a low testosterone condition. While carrying a high threshold of toleration, there are possible side effects of Testosterone Propionate use. For the low level patient, the side effects of Testosterone Propionate will rarely be a problem. Side effects are possible, but keep in mind you’re merely replacing what your body is lacking. For the performance athlete, this will require supraphysiological doses of the hormone and this is where the side effects of Testosterone Propionate will be most common. However, most men can tolerate high testosterone levels very well. There is a cutoff point and it will vary from one man to the next, but most men can enjoy and control relatively high levels of the hormone. In order to help you understand the possible side effects of Testosterone Propionate, we have broken them down into their separate categories along with all the information you’ll need.

Estrogenic:

The side effects of Testosterone Propionate will predominantly surround its estrogenic nature. The testosterone hormone has the ability to convert to estrogen through its interaction with the aromatase enzyme. As aromatization occurs, if estrogen levels become high this can lead to gynecomastia and excess water retention. Severe excess water retention can also lead to high blood pressure. Fortunately, it is very easy to control and avoid the estrogenic side effects of Testosterone Propionate.

Many men are commonly encouraged to use an anti-estrogen when supplementing with exogenous testosterone. You have two choices in anti-estrogens, Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERM’s) like Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) and Aromatase Inhibitors (AI’s) like Arimidex (Anastrozole). AI’s will be the most effective as they inhibit aromatization and lower serum estrogen levels. SERM’s will not inhibit or reduce estrogen, but rather bind to the estrogen receptor preventing the estrogen hormone from binding.

While AI’s are the most effective, they can also be harsh on cholesterol. They do not appear to be too harsh on their own, but when combined with an aromatizing steroid like Testosterone Propionate the problem is enhanced. SERM’s will not promote any negative cholesterol activity. In fact, while anti-estrogenic SERM’s actually act as estrogen in the liver and will promote healthy cholesterol. SERM’s should always be your first choice if they can get the job done. However, some will need an AI and if so they will need to put more effort into controlling their cholesterol.

Androgenic:

Testosterone Propionate is a potent androgenic hormone and as a result androgenic side effects are possible. The possible androgenic side effects of Testosterone Propionate include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. While these side effects of Testosterone Propionate are possible, they are highly dependent on genetic predispositions. Many men will not have an issue at all, while others may need to exercise a little caution.

The testosterone hormone has the ability to reduce to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) due to it being metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This is what promotes the androgenic activity in the target areas of the skin and scalp. Some men may find a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor like Finasteride to be useful as it will reduce the hormones relative androgenicity. It will not completely reduce this activity but it will have a pronounced effect.

 Cardiovascular:

Testosterone Propionate can have a negative impact on cholesterol, particularly HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) in suppressing total HDL levels. A therapeutic dose should not support a strong statistical decrease, however, the same dose could promote HDL suppression when conjoined with an AI. With a supraphysiological dose, total HDL suppression by as much as 20% is very possible. If conjoined with an AI it will more than likely be exasperated.

If you’re going to supplement with Testosterone Propionate, especially if you’re going to include an AI a cholesterol friendly lifestyle will be important. The individuals diet should be rich in omega fatty acids, low in saturated fats and simple sugars, and plenty of cardiovascular activity should be part of your normal routine. Those who ensure a cholesterol friendly lifestyle will rarely have an issue unless some underlying condition exists.

Testosterone:

Regardless of who you are or why you’re using it, the side effects of Testosterone Propionate will always include the suppression of natural testosterone production. For the low level patient this is of no concern. Such an individual is not producing enough testosterone to begin with. For the performance athlete, during use this is also no concern as the exogenous testosterone will provide your body all it needs.

Once use is discontinued, natural testosterone production will begin again. This, however, does not apply to the low testosterone patient. A low level patient will more than likely always need exogenous testosterone therapy.

For the performance athlete, although production will begin again on its own more are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan. This will cut down the total recovery time and ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise. No, a PCT plan will not return you to normal on its own, there’s no PCT plan that can do this, but it will ensure a more efficient and comfortable recovery. It will also greatly protect your lean muscle tissue. Once a cycle is discontinued and natural testosterone levels are low, it is very easy for cortisol to become the dominant hormone, and this will put your lean tissue at risk. Implement a PCT plan and this problem is solved.

An important note on natural testosterone recovery; this assumes severe damage was not done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) due to improper steroidal supplementation. It also assumes no prior low testosterone condition existed.

Hepatotoxicity:

Testosterone Propionate is not hepatotoxic. This anabolic steroid will present no stress or damage to the liver.

Post Testosterone cycle treatment

Following the end of any cycle, a thorough and proper Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) program is always necessary, where Testosterone-stimulating ancillary compounds such as Nolvadex and/or HCG should be utilized in order to facilitate the normalization of the HPTA and endogenous Testosterone production as quickly as possible. PCT protocols and programs are usually run for the duration of 4 to 6 weeks after all anabolic steroids have cleared from the body following the end of the cycle. Failure to engage in a proper PCT program can result in permanent damage to the HPTA, whereby the individual produces insufficient/deficient levels of Testosterone (a medical condition known as hypogonadism), and medical treatment in the form of TRT (Testosterone Replacement Therapy) for life will be required.

Interactions

Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist.
