Testosterone is the main male sex hormone and an androgen with pronounced anabolic properties: it increases muscle mass, accelerates protein synthesis. It is secreted by the Leydig cells of the testes in men, as well as in small amounts by the ovaries in women and by the adrenal cortex in both sexes. It is a product of peripheral metabolism. Artificial testosterone preparations are very often used in bodybuilding.
Testosterone Suspension Effects
Increased muscle mass
Involved in the development of male reproductive organs, secondary sexual characteristics: low voice, male facial features, male hair growth, etc.
Ensures spermatogenesis and sexual behavior
Stimulation of erythropoiesis and distribution of subcutaneous adipose tissue
Influences nitrogen and phosphorus metabolism
Testosterone is popular with athletes due to its ability to stimulate dramatic gains in muscle mass and strength. As a natural hormone, it remains the most popular anabolic steroid and is often used as a base for all cycles.
The rapid half-life of Testosterone Suspension creates the need for daily injections. The cycle lasts no more than 5 weeks, the daily dose is 20-100 mg. Like other forms of testosterone, suspension can suppress endogenous testosterone secretion. To eliminate this reaction, it is recommended to combine the cycle with Gonadotropin. In this case Gonadotropin should be taken 1000 IU in one injection every week.
Possible side effects
Increased blood pressure
Water retention (edema)
Aggression, irritability, excitement
Alopecia (scalp baldness)
It should also be noted that approximately 0.3% of testosterone is converted to estradiol (the primary female sex hormone) by aromatase, an enzyme which is expressed in the brain, liver and adipose tissue. Therefore, remember to take precautions to avoid related side effects. In this case, we recommend blood work and aromatase inhibitors (preferably anastrozole if needed) and SERM (clomiphene, toremifene) during post cycle therapy (PCT) during a cycle.
