Sustanon – Sustanon 250 & Sustanon 100
Sustanon is an oil-based injectable steroid comprised of esterized testosterone compounds. It is an androgenic steroid with a pronounced anabolic effect. Sustanon injection is often termed as a depot injection. According to the British National Formulary, Sustanon injection is the most preferred method of testosterone replacement in the UK. Sustanon is available as sustanon 250 and sustanon 100.
COMPOSITION – sustanon 250 is a trade name for an oil-based injectable blend of four esterized testosterone compounds – 30mg Testosterone Propionate, 60mg Testosterone Phenylpropionate, 60mg Testosterone Isocaproate, and 100mg Testosterone Decanoate.
Sustanon 100 is similar, but containing three esterized testosterone compounds – 20mg Testosterone Propionate, 40mg Testosterone Phenylpropionate, and 40mg Testosterone Isocaproate. Sustanon 100 is the smaller dose, which is meant for paediatric use.
USAGE – sustanon is a fairly popular anabolic steroid among the muscle builders. It is commonly used by the athletes who look to enhance their size, strength, and stamina. Since, sustanon leads to less water retention and estrogenic side effects, the injection is extremely beneficial to gynecomastiaic bodybuilders seeking powerful anabolic effect of an injectable anabolic steroid.
WORKING – sustanon injection works by creating a reservoir of medicine in muscle where it is injected. Each esterized testosterone is gradually released after different time periods from the reservoir into the bloodstream. Testosterone Propionate is a fast-acting ester, and it is therefore released during the first 24 hours. Testosterone Isocaproate on the other hand, is a long-acting ester, and thus is released last, during a twelve day period.
SIDE EFFECTS – sustanon is a fairly safe steroid, but in high dosages of sustanon often result in side effects. Some of the common side effects associated with sustanon 250 include Water/Salt Retention, Skin Problems, Male/Female Reproduction System Problems, Gynecomastia, Hair Loss, Kidney / Liver Problems, and Psychological Issues. The athletes taking high dosages of sustanon 250 may experience increased estrogen level. Thus, the athletes taking dosages exceeding 1000 mg a week should use an antiestrogen such as Nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate) or Proviron (mesterolone). Often, natural testosterone production is suppressed by sustanon, thus using HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) or Clomid (clomiphene citrate) may be good idea at the end of a sustanon cycle
STACKING – sustanon 250 is a good base steroid for stacking. The athletes looking for rapid size and strength gains can stack sustanon 250 with orals steroids, such as Anadrol® (oxymetholone) and Dianabol (methandrostenlone). However, the athletes looking for the hard, ripped look can stack sustanon 250 with Parabolan (trenbolone hexahydrobencylcarbonate), Masteron (drostanolone propionate), and Winstrol (stanozolol).
