Testosterone: History and basic information
This compound has risen from simple research and medical practice to become one of the most notorious and versatile drugs in the world, even of all time. The item was originally developed in the field of academic research, as many chemicals are, first by extracting it from animal tests as early as the late 19th century.
However, around the start and mid-20th century, its use in clinical settings surged in popularity, once the artificial synthesis of the Testosterone Propionate was improved. The injectable form known today was brought about in the mid-19th century and has been the predominantly used version of the drug ever since.
From a structural standpoint, the compound is no different than you would see if you examined the endogenous form of the chemical. The primary difference is the attachment of a chemical delivery agent, known in medical terms as an ester. This is used to allow a more gradual and controlled release of the substance, and its effects in the body, the actions of which are discussed below. In this case, the fast-acting propionate delivery agent means it will usually be released quickly and reach its half-life is around 4 days.
Nowadays, this item is popularly used for a number of treatments in a variety of medical ailments, most often those eliciting or involving muscle wastage. However, it is even more popularly, and more commonly, used in sports and recreational circles where its objectives are more aesthetic or capability-focused. This is also reviewed in further detail below.
Common uses, mechanisms of action, and administration
As mentioned above, this drug started out its use in medical circles, treating issues like HIV, cancer, and other diseases affecting muscle mass.
However, around the same time as it gained popularity in medical circles, it also gained traction in the sports field, when many Soviet athletes started implementing it into their regimes. After this, it quickly spread to the west and made its way to the routines of bodybuilders and then recreational gymgoers looking to accelerate their results.
After its administration, this chemical works through the binding of the active agent with androgen receptors in the body, which causes a specific impact on the signaling of certain cells in the body on a molecular level. This then elicits global changes around the body like a boost in protein synthesis, subsequent muscle mass, reduction in protein breakdown, as well as a boost in erythrocyte manufacturing and output and bone mineral absorption and storage.
The administration specifically is made through an intramuscular injection, most commonly administered in sites like the lateral deltoid muscle on the side of the shoulder or the gluteal muscles in the buttocks. These sites are also commonly rotated to avoid issues like excessive soreness or potential infection of administration sites. As with the administration of any injectable solution, the use of sterile equipment is imperative.
Dosage, period of use, and effects (positive and negative)
Dosage and length of use
As with any chemical supplement, the amount that you take, and the length of time you take it, will dictate its impact on the user.
Fortunately, for this agent, there is a multitude of studies examining different amounts and periods of continuous use for both medical and recreational and competitive goals, and the most important thing to keep in mind when selecting both dose and time period is that it will be dependant on gender, experience, and personal goals.
Commonly though, the range of dosing is between 50 to 200 milligrams each day, or double this, every second day, depending on your experience level, as more will be needed for those who’ve used Testosterone Propionate before, due to greater proliferation and amount of androgen receptors in seasoned users. This would be a guideline for male users.
For female users, Testosterone Propionate is not recommended, due to high susceptibility to androgenic side effects, causing virilization. But, some have reported employing 10-50 milligrams each day or every second day.
The length of use is normally between 8 to 12 weeks for almost all users, in order to obtain its perks in full.
The widespread use of Testosterone Propionate in so many different settings should indicate its multiple benefits. These perks include:
● A sharp rise in lean tissue and quicker recovery from strenuous training or events
● A higher amount of red blood cells, and higher work capacity
● Greater bone density and strength
● Greater force and power Testosterone Propionate in capacity
As with any drug on the market, obtained either underground or over-the-counter, there are a number of adverse events associated with the use of this chemical, especially with higher and more prolonged use of it in recreational and sporting settings. These may involve:
● Increased fluid retention and concurrent fat gain with muscle increases
● The potential for the development of excess tissue around the breasts, known as gynecomastia
● Increased heart size and reduced blood vessel plasticity as well as higher blood pressure, all of which can increase the chance of a cardiac event
● Androgen-related issues, such as skin problems like acne, oily skin, and accelerated balding in genetically predisposed men, as well as the development of male traits in female users
It is important to note that, along with dose and drug management, you can also help prevent and manage many of the above-mentioned issues with ancillary products, such as Aromatase Inhibitors, Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators, and 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors. All of these should be carefully researched and a medical professional should be consulted prior to the use.
Acquiring Testosterone Propionate
Due to the common inclusion of Testosterone Propionate in the treatment of so many illnesses, and now anti-aging treatments, it is possible to get Testosterone Propionate from vendors, such as pharmacies and medical outlets.
However, this can only be done if you can get a prescription from a qualified medical practitioner, which will only be possible if you have a diagnosable ailment that requires the drug for treatment. Even with it, the larger amount needed for sporting or aesthetic purposes and the cost of conventional pharmacies will mean that this will not be a cost-effective pursuit.
Instead, online vendors can often offer a higher range and amount of products for a far more affordable price tag. Here, you can make quick and convenient buys and have items delivered straight to your door, all in a far more efficient manner.
