Dihydroboldenone, known as 1-Testosterone Cypionate, is a synthetic anabolic-androgenic steroid and a 5alpha reduced form of the steroid Boldenone. It binds selectively to the androgen receptor and stimulates androgen receptor transactivation of dependent reporter genes. Used in the performance-enhancing context, it has a big popularity among athletes because it can stimulate significant muscle growth without producing androgenic side effects.
- The lack of 5alpha reduction allows individuals to administer it without suffering the negative estrogenic side effects associated with Dihydroboldenone.
- Once again, like most anabolic steroids, the injectable treatment is preferred to the detriment of the oral version, because it preserves longer the substance in the body and of its reduction of negative side effects. However, used in excess, Dihydroboldenone Cypionate becomes toxic for the liver. Also, some individuals can suffer from insomnia or sweating at night.
- For women and female athletes, DHT Cypionate still has the potential to develop symptoms of virilization, such as voice deepening, enlarged clitoris, and facial/body hair. Yet, these are not as severe as with synthetic Testosterone
