testosterone phenylpropionate is a form of testosterone was first released under the trade name “Testolent” pharmaceutical firm Sicomed Pharmaceutical house. Until recently, testosterone phenylpropionate was a rarity on the black market, but the current availability of precursors for synthesis and the emergence of numerous clandestine laboratories have made this more affordable version of testosterone. phenylpropionate is part of a complex means of omnadren.Chemically the drug is a compound testosterone with the phenylpropionate ester, which is much more common in connection with nandrolone (trade name Durabolin).
This testosterone ester is active for 4-5 days, is a cross between testosterone cypionate and propionate. The drug can be useful for athletes who like propionate, but does not suit high frequency of the injection.
Judging by the experimental data, the best results are achieved if the injections are performed every third or fourth day, or approximately twice a week. In addition to the essential features of the molecule, testosterone phenylpropionate is slightly different from other forms.
According to athletes, this drug in lesser extent causes an accumulation of fluid in the body than testosterone cypionate or enanthate. “Dryness” of muscles, comparable with the results obtained when using propionate.
Mechanism of action
testosterone phenylpropionate has an effect on muscle by improving nitrogen retention in the muscle. testosterone also increases the level of insulin-like growth factor IGF-1 in muscle and liver. testosterone, regardless of ester, also has the ability to accelerate the division of satellite cells, which play an important role in repairing damaged muscle.
testosterone may develop in the body into estrogen (a process known as aromatization) and dihydrotestosterone (through the work of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase). The estrogen is the cause of many side effects such as gynecomastia, water retention, etc. while sometimes dihydrotestosterone causes hair loss on the head, enlargement of the prostate etc.
A common complaint of athletes is pain at the injection site. May develop abscess.
In connection with the growing popularity of the drug on the black market, and increased availability, the cost of testosterone phenylpropionate is constantly decreasing, so we can assume that it will become quite popular in the coming years. Currently the drug in the USA is relatively rare.
