Trenbolone is a synthetic anabolic androgenic steroid that is derived from 19-nortestosterone. It was initially manufactured for use in veterinary medicine to increase muscle mass gain and promote growth in livestock. It has found use by humans for performance enhancement and for faster bulking. Despite the unavailability by prescription, it is sold in online stores and black markets as trenbolone base enanthate ester also commonly known as Trenabol.
Trenbolone Enanthate is a more potent anabolic and androgenic steroid than testosterone. The ester makes the steroid have a longer half life. This is because once it is injected intramuscularly, the steroid is released slowly into the blood stream giving it a longer half life hence a longer dosing frequency is possible. An added advantage of Trenbolone enanthate is its inhibition of Aromatase. By inhibiting Aromatase, Testosterone and the steroid is not broken down to estrogen. The steroid therefore lacks the estrogenic side effects that are notorious with steroid use.
The benefits of trenbolone are similar to those of other steroids but with it, they occur faster and are more marked. These include an increased rate of protein synthesis with increased muscle mass and a faster recovery time during intense exercises. There is also the added effect of increasing red blood cell production therefore increasing oxygen delivery to muscles which also reduces muscular injury and muscular oxygenation.
Nitrogen levels are increased in muscle cells with the use of Trenabol. Nitrogen is important for inhibition of catabolism in the muscle. It prevents breakdown of muscles for energy production. Therefore, a higher nitrogen content means reduced injury and more anabolism.
With trenbolone use, there is increased production of the Insulin like Growth Factor 1 in the liver. IGF-1 is responsible for processes in the body such as lipolysis and increased cellular growth in muscles. It is also important in the strengthening of tendons, cartilage and ligaments due to increased cellular matrix.
Trenbolone base enanthate ester has side effects if not used in the right dosage and duration. However stopping its use and adding Testosterone to the cycle alleviates and stops the adverse side effects.
