Recently, a great popularity among athletes has acquired Testosterone cypionate. This is a long steroid, the activity in the body is 15-16 days, and the half-life is from 6 to 8. The drug is an oil-based injection. Since the steroid remains active in the body for a long time, it is able to accumulate and retain water in the body, and in some steppes even more than other steroids. Cypionate is used and solo, but most often taken in combination with other steroids.
Getting into the body, Cypionate begins to act according to the same scheme as natural Testosterone (a male sexual hormone that is responsible for the primary and secondary signs of the male body). In particular, it causes a decrease in the tone of the voice, is responsible for the normal level of libido, nervous excitability and aggression, the growth of muscle mass. Testosterone has an effect on anabolic receptors, which increases the nitrogen retention in the muscle fibers, which in turn affects the growth of muscle mass.
Despite the fact that Testosterone Cypionate has a huge number of advantages, it has its drawbacks (however, like all pharmacological agents). The main disadvantage of this steroid is that it is strongly prone to aromatization, more simply – it is converted into estrogen. It is a female hormone, it is present in any organism (both in male and female), however, if there is an overabundance in the male body, the process of feminization of the organism starts (females appear). To estrogenic side effects can be attributed: fluid accumulation, gynecomastia, growth of adipose tissue by female type. In addition, there is a decrease in libido, inhibition of sexual activity, in some cases can reach testicular atrophy. Most of these side effects are easily prevented if the drug is taken competently.
