What is Testabolan?
Testabolan is a nutritional supplement in the category of anabolic/androgenic agents that influences specific hormones in the human body. Testabolan is the most intense anabolic/androgenic testosterone stack ever developed to increase muscular size (bulk), increase cellular density (hardness), and promote dermal tone (vascularity).
What do anabolic and androgenic mean?
Anabolic refers to the building or construction part of molecular synthesis. In order to build muscle you must be in an anabolic state, i.e., you are in a building state where protein synthesis occurs and muscle cells increase in size. To the contrast, catabolic means the breaking down or destruction phase of molecular synthesis. During energy production substances are broken down and used as energy. In relation to muscle building, catabolism refers to the breakdown of muscle proteins and the loss of muscle.
Androgen or androgenic refers to the specific male hormones that are responsible for male characteristics. Testosterone, for example, is an androgen hormone that influences muscular growth, facial and body hair, aggression, and all other male characteristics.
How does Testabolan work?
Testabolan contains very powerful prohormone substances that the body converts directly to specific androgen hormones. This conversion causes an increase in the naturally occurring levels of these hormones in your body and a subsequently greater influence on muscular growth. One substance influences muscular growth (bulking), another influences muscular definition and vascularity, and another protects against unwanted side effects.
What are prohomones and how do they work?
Prohormones are steroidal substances that the body converts to a specific anabolic/androgenic hormone by a specific related enzyme. All anabolic steroids are chemical derivatives of testosterone. Due to testosterones short biological half-life pharmacological use of prohomones requires the steroid to be modified to slow the metabolism by the liver. Typically, oral steroids and prohormones are modified primarily by alkylation (replacing the H with a CH3 group), while injectable steroids are modified by esterification of the hydroxyl group). Basically, these modifications alter the substance slightly so that it enters the bloodstream intact, either orally, or by injection, and then by an enzymatic reaction converts to testosterone or one of the other hormones in the body.
What are the prohormone substances in Testabolan?
The first prohormone substance is Boldenoid (1,4 Androstadiene-3 alpha, 17B dione).
Leading anabolic substance authorities have proclaimed this direct testosterone precursor to be the most orally active prohormone available today. Boldenoid is a direct precursor to the anabolic hormone Boldenone, widely administered as an injected veterinary steroid. It is a powerful testosterone precursor with low to moderate androgenic characteristics. Boldenoid is highly orally bioavailable, which is most often the problem with prohormones. But, this unique compound is resistant to 17-ketosteroid deactivation, which takes place in the liver, lowering the potential for this compound to be rendered inactive. Instead, this compound and its 17 beta-hydroxal group avoid, to a large degree, hepatic metabolism to remain active and complete the conversion to testosterone. In studies measuring excretion of active 17 beta-hydrosteroids, as much as 50% of the urinary metabolites have been recovered. This is a dramatic improvement over other prohormones that register much lower scores between 5% and 14%. This means that Boldenoid has the greatest potential for oral bioavailability and conversion to testosterone of any prohormone available today.
Because Boldenoid is an extremely strong muscle builder, it possesses some aromatizing potential (as do all bulking anabolics). The positive news is that this potential is roughly half that of other anabolics including androstendione and even testosterone. The gains in muscle mass are so significant, and the conversion to estrogen and the associated side effects so minimal, this substance is the clear choice for putting on lean muscle.
Boldenoid converts to testosterone by the 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme.
The second prohormone is Masteroid (5-Alpha Androstane 3, 17B diol).
Masteroid is the perfect anabolic complement to Boldenoid. Boldenoid helps to build the mass, Masteroid helps to tone and harden the muscle. This combination stack promotes a massive and ultra-defined muscular physique.
Masteroid is the most potent non-aromatizable androgenic prohormone ever developed. This substance is a direct precursor to a highly active form of testosterone, recognized as the most potent androgen in the human body.
Masteroid lacks the molecular structure to convert to estrogen (aromatization). So, the common side effects of elevated estrogen, water retention, increased body fat, and gynecomastia are completely avoided with this androgen. This action makes this compound more effective as a promoter of lean muscle tissue and overall strength rather than as a bulking agent. Professional athletes use this type of substance pre-contest to achieve the deep cuts and vascularity of championship muscle.
Masteroid converts to active testosterone by the 3-alpha hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme.
The third substance is Phytoroid (Beta Sitosterol).
The addition of Beta Sitosterol to this exclusive androgenic complex helps prevent the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Beta Sitosterol is a powerful substance that inhibits enzyme 5-alpha reductase, thereby decreasing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Because this chemical activity involves different enzymes for activation, Beta Sitosterol does not interfere with the effectiveness of Masteroid and its conversion process. Instead Beta Sitosterol prevents testosterone from being converted to DHT, essentially keeping testosterone levels high and the testosterone-to-DHT conversion process in check. This is significant because Beta Sitosterol also helps inhibit DHT from binding to cytosolic androgen receptors in prostatic cells. This important activity helps prevent complications related to elevated DHT levels such as an enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BHP).
Equally important, Beta Sitosterol also exerts a powerful anti-estrogen effect, lowering cytosol and nuclear receptor values for estrogen. This helps prevent the unwanted effects of estrogen levels including the development of gynecomastia, water retention, and increased body fat. All androgens have the potential for aromatization, including testosterone. Elevated levels of testosterone are down regulated in the body by the potential conversion to dihydrotestosterone and (estrodiol) estrogen. Beta Sitosterol inhibits this down regulation and the potential associated side effects.
Beta Sitosterol inhibits enzyme 5-alpha reductase, decreasing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
The addition of Phytoroid to Testabolan is to increase the anabolic action of Boldenoid and Masteroid, and protect against the potential side effects of prostate complications, gynecomastia, water retention, and increased body fat.
Are there any potential side effects from taking Testabolan?
The most common potential side effects from taking Testabolan are those typically related to elevated anabolic hormones. Increased body hair growth, oily skin, acne outbreaks, and more aggressive behavior are a few. Long term use of anabolic agents can possibly cause the potential for a reduction of natural testosterone production, prostate enlargement, liver enzyme imbalance and even hair loss. As mentioned above, all androgens have the potential to convert to estrogen. Elevated estrogen levels are associated with gynecomastia, water retention, and body fat storage. Testabolan is specifically formulated to increase anabolic activity while minimizing these potential side effects.
We recommend cycling the product with off cycle periods to allow your body to regain its natural production levels and reduce the potential for long term side effects. Remember, even though Testabolan is formulated with the anabolic substances that offer the greatest benefit with the least potential for adverse side effects, it is a powerful anabolic complex and should be taken responsibly for the best results with the least complications.
Warning: Prohormones are for adult male use only, not for use by children, teenagers, or women. Do not use this product if you have prostate problems, diabetes, or heart disease. If you are under medical supervision consult your physician before taking this product. Do not exceed recommended daily dosages. Do not consume alcoholic beverages while taking this product.
How do I cycle Testabolan?
Testabolan should be cycled as follows. For athletes just beginning a training program we recommend that you start out by taking one capsule three times daily. On training days take one capsule 90 minutes prior to training. Take on an empty stomach. Advanced athletes or athletes over 200 lbs. can take up to 2 capsules three times a day. Again, on training days take one dose 90 minutes prior to training. Do this for 5 consecutive days taking 2 consecutive days off in between the on days. After 4 weeks of taking Testabolan, take 2 weeks off to let the body readjust before starting another on cycle.
Will I test positive in drug tests?
Everyone will experience different levels of increased androgen hormones from taking Testabolan, but it is highly likely that if you are to be tested for anabolic steroids or other performance enhancing drugs, you will test positive.
