Sustanon 250 - Organon
Sustanon 250 is an oil based injectable steroid containing four different testosterone compounds: testosterone propionate, testosterone phenylpropionate, testosterone isocaproate and testosterone decanoate. Sustanon 250 was the first multi-estered blend of testosterone available on the market, and was developed by Organon as an ideal HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) solution. It was meant to give the user consistently elevated blood levels of testosterone over the course of a month, and thus eliminate the need for frequent trips to the doctors office for injections. This drug was very popular in the 80ís and 90ís, and was often thought of as being a 'stack' in one drug. Which isnít really accurate, because, in the end all you have is testosterone once your body has metabolized it.
Sustanon will do exactly what any other form of testosterone will do, no more and no less, it will cause muscle growth as well as fat loss, by sending a message to your muscles to store more protein (thatís its primary anabolic effect), while also protecting your muscles from catabolic (muscle wasting). It will also change both the appearance and the actual number of muscle fibers in your body.
As the mixture of the testosterones are time released they provide an immediate effect while still remaining active in the body for up to a month. As with other testosterones, Sustanon is an androgenic steroid with a pronounced anabolic effect. Therefore, athletes commonly use Sustanon to put on mass and size while increasing strength. However, unlike other testosterone compounds such as cypionate and enanthate, the use of Sustanon leads to less water retention and estrogenic side effects. This characteristic is extremely beneficial to bodybuilders who suffer from gynecomastia yet still seek the powerful anabolic effect of an injectable testosterone.
The decreased water retention also makes Sustanon 250 a desirable steroid for bodybuilders and athletes interested in cutting up or building a solid foundation of quality mass. Dosages of Sustanon normanlly range from 250 mg every other week, up to 2000 mg or more per week. These dosages seem to be the extremes. A more common dosage would range from 250 mg to 1000 mg per week. Although Sustanon remains active for up to a month, injections should be taken at least once a week to keep testosterone levels stable.
Steroid novice's can expect to gain about 20 pounds within a couple of months by using only 250 mg of Sustanon a week. More advanced athletes will obviously need higher dosages to obtain the desired effect. Sustanon is a fairly safe steroid, but in high dosages, some athletes may experience side effects due to an elevated estrogen level. With dosages exceeding 1000 mg a week, it is probably wise to use an anti-estrogen such as Nolvadex or Proviron. The use of Sustanon will suppress natural testosterone production, so the use of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) or Clomid may be appropriate at the end of a cycle.
Athletes interested in rapid size and strength gains, will find that Sustanon stacks extremely well with orals such as Androlic (oxymetholone) and Dianabol (methandrostenlone). Sustanon also stacks well with Trenabol Depot (Trenbolone), and Winstrol (stanozolol) for athletes seeking that hard, ripped look.
