The testosterone hormone was the first steroid synthesized, and it remains the standard for all others that have come after it. It has an anabolic/androgenic ratio of one to one, which means that it is exactly balanced in that regard. If you change the ratio, you change its effectiveness in various capacities.
In terms of bodybuilding and athletics, one of the primary purposes of testosterone is to build muscle. It does this by promoting retention of nitrogen, increasing IGF-1, and increasing the anabolic activity of a substance known as GH, or growth hormone. When used properly, it also helps to repair damaged muscles and promotes fat loss.
Other effects include the ability to protect muscle from catabolic processes and increase red blood cell production, this giving you higher endurance from oxygenated blood flow as well as improving your tolerance to strenuous activity over an extended period of time.
Many people aren’t familiar with the fact that testosterone is present in both males and females; it is just in a higher concentration in men. It is difficult to drug test for it, as you won’t get a failing grade until you’ve hit a ratio of 6:1. Basically this means that if you don’t want to fail a test, simply stop taking it about two days before the test. Low doses are a good idea anyway before heading to some type of competition where you might be disqualified for use.
In terms of chemical possessing, testosterone breaks down into oestrogen and something known as DHT. When you hear about the side effects of taking steroids, those effects are usually related to the side effects of excess amounts of these two things in your body. Water retention, breast tissue enlargement, shrunken testicles, hair loss, and prostate enlargement occur because there are unnatural amounts of these chemicals and hormones present.
The way to fix some of these problems is through various compound inhibitors, which block the processes that lead to the ill effects. However, once those ill effects are blocked, others are sure to take their places, as you don’t ever really get something for nothing. It is quite a path to induce yourself to get increased musculature, and it’s very important to understand exactly what you are getting into. Be aware that increased aggression also fits into the mix.
So to understand a little more how injecting testosterone and steroids work, you have to understand what an ester is. When you purchase testosterone propionate, for example, the propionate ester is what is attached at the end of the molecular chain. Once in your blood stream, the body has enzymes that break down those esters. But, the longer the ester chain, the longer the enzymes take to break it down, and thus the longer the testosterone stays in your system. The only thing to understand about that is that the longer it is in your system, the more pronounced the side effects will be. An intelligent user will keep this in mind when determining which compound to use because of its ester type.
