Testosterone Propionate is one of the many variants of esterified testosterone, which today's market carries. It is a slow release injectable substance due to the long ester testosterone enanthate connection per molecule. This change modifies the release rate and the half-life of testosterone.
Non-esterified testosterone has a very short half-life, so its use is very inconvenient and impractical. The Enanthate ester prolongs the half-life of testosterone to 10 days. Testosterone itself is considered to be the most natural and safest anabolic steroid. It can be used by any person as a natural testosterone in the body. It is the most versatile and flexible as regards the intended use in treatments aimed at the definition and period of volume.
Testosterone is the building block of all anabolic steroids, and is a hormone naturally produced by the body. Testosterone is secreted by the testes and is responsible for developing or maintaining balanced primary and secondary sexual characteristics in men – deepening of the voice, rapid hair growth (especially on the face, legs and pubis), and is also responsible for producing sperm for sexual reproduction.
Most androgenic anabolic steroids are derived from this hormone and, therefore, are used to enhance performance and produce significant gains in strength and muscle mass.
The use of testosterone is associated with dramatic and almost permanent gains with respect to muscle, muscle mass and size, strength, aggression, endurance and the ability to handle intensive training. This hormone is vital for bone density, muscle volume and strength, sex drive, body fat distribution, red blood cell production, and sperm production. Testosterone also acts as a prevention of osteoporosis and is important for physical health and well-being. In addition, the hormone is also useful for stimulating linear growth and bone maturation. Regulates cognitive and physical energy and the maintenance of muscle cells. Testosterone also has the ability to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Testosterone is literally considered to be the original anabolic steroid that is naturally produced in all humans and most animal species. For this reason, testosterone is considered to be the safest anabolic steroid. Every individual's body is already used to the effects of testosterone.
Testosterone enanthate is subject to the action of the aromatase enzyme in the body, so its side effects are the side effects of estrogen. The aromatization rate is directly related to the use of the substance and, together with the increasing doses, the aromatization rate is higher. Estrogenic side effects include: excessive water retention and swelling, high blood pressure (for example due to water retention in the body), accelerated fat storage, and gynecomastia. Side effects of estrogen can be reduced or completely avoided by using aromatase inhibitors or SERMs (selective estrogen receptor modulators) Androgenic side effects include: increased sebum secretion (oily skin), acne (in terms of increased sebum secretion), body hair growth and increased risk of induction of male pattern baldness (MPB) in individuals with a genetic predisposition.
Anabolic / androgenic steroids can have deleterious effects on blood cholesterol levels. This includes a tendency to lower HDL (good) cholesterol and raise LDL (bad) cholesterol. All anabolic steroids have the ability to suppress or stop the natural endogenous production of testosterone in the body. Therefore, it is highly recommended to use an appropriate PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) at the end of the cycle.
Beginners are recommended a dose of testosterone enanthate in the range of 300-500 mg per week. Even at the lowest dose, the substance provides a significant improvement for beginners, for the strength of the figure, provided that nutrition and training are properly regulated and rigorous. Testosterone enanthate of intermediate users dosed in the range of 500-700 mg per week. Experienced users use the amount between 700 and 1000 mg per week. To maintain stable plasma testosterone levels, it is recommended to use testosterone enanthate at least 2 times per week at regular intervals. ENANTHATE-250 is detectable in the urine for 120 days.
