Sustanon 250 is a blend of different testosterone esters, first developed and released by Organon as a means of hormonal replacement therapy for insufficient secretion of endogenous testosterone. The product includes 4 forms of testosterone:
- 30mg – Testosterone Propionate
- 60mg – Testosterone Phenylpropionate
- 60mg – Testosterone Isocaproate
- 100mg – Testosterone Decanoate
- Oil (more often peanut) as a solvent
- Benzyl alcohol as a preservative and antiseptic
Each form of testosterone that is included in Sustanon 250 has a different rate of absorption, which allows you to maintain a constantly high level of anabolic hormones in the blood for a month. There is no need for frequent injections, the product is put only once every three weeks (for medical purposes). Some believe that Sustanon 250 is a combined cycle in one bottle, but this is not the case, because each component of the drug is converted in the body only into testosterone.
Sustanon 250 Effects
Sustanon 250 acts exactly like any other form of testosterone. This means that the main effects of Sustanon 250 are:
- Increase in muscle mass (average 6 kg per month)
- Anti-catabolic action
- Increased appetite
- Increased hematopoiesis – increasing the number of red blood cells in the blood provides better transport of oxygen, thereby increasing endurance.
- Increase of libido (during the intake Sustanon 250)
- The detection time of the drug is up to 3 months.
Sustanon 250 Cycle
Sustanon 250 is recommended only for men to gain muscle mass, without contraindications to the use of anabolic steroids.
Sustanon cycle lasts up to 10 weeks. When longer duration is required the introduction of gonadotropin.
Injections of the drug are performed once a week at a dose of 250-500 mg intramuscularly (it is desirable to introduce Sustanon 250 in the gluteal muscles).
From the second week of the cycle, start taking aromatase inhibitors under the control of estrogen tests (usually use Anastrozole of 0,5 mg every other day). Discontinue ia 1-2 weeks after the last injection.
After 3 weeks after the last injection, Post Cycle Therapy begins, testosterone boosters are taken for 3-4 weeks to restore the production of their own testosterone.
For maximum cycle efficiency, take a sports nutrition complex to gain muscle mass and follow a diet to gain muscle mass.
Be sure to consult a specialist before taking Sustanon 250.
Sustanon 250 Side Effects
Like any other form of testosterone, Sustanon 250 is converted to estrogens. For this reason, Sustanon 250 causes side effects such as gynecomastia, edema, female fat deposition and inhibition of the production of own testosterone. These side effects can be prevented if antiestrogens are used, preferably aromatase inhibitors. Selective estrogen receptor modulators (Tamoxifen Citrate, etc.) are connected only during Post Cycle Therapy.
As a result of the decrease in the production of endogenous testosterone, it is possible to develop such a serious side effect of Sustanon 250 as testicular atrophy. This side effect can be prevented if not doing a cycle longer than 8 weeks and taking antiestrogens. With longer cycles require the use of HCG.
In the body, testosterone is converted into dihydrotestosterone, which causes the following side effects: prostate hypertrophy, baldness, acne and others. These are the so-called androgenic side effects of Sustanon 250.
Also, athletes often note an increase in temperature and flu-like condition during the Sustanon 250 cycle. Like most steroids, this product increases the level of harmful cholesterol in the blood (is prevented by taking omega-3 throughout the cycle).
After injection, infiltrates are sometimes formed (seals in the gluteal region or other place of administration). Typically, infiltrates resolve in 2-5 weeks.
