Drostanolone Propionate is the Dihydrotestosterone hormone that has been structurally altered by the addition of a methyl group at the carbon 2 position. This change creates Drostanolone, and the Propionate ester is attached in order to control the hormone’s release time. It’s essential to keep in mind that DHT, the basis of Drostanolone Propionate, is five times more potent than testosterone, with a much stronger binding affinity to the androgen receptor. Drostanolone works by attaching itself to androgen receptors. The treatment increases the synthesis of some proteins or decreases the synthesis of others. Proteins have a variety of effects, including blocking the growth of estrogen receptor-presenting breast cancers, stimulating cells that cause male sexual characteristics, and stimulating the production of red blood cells.
Regarding the performance-enhancing context, Drostanolone Propionate is a DHT derived anabolic steroid which promotes a harder look and can enhance fat loss. It produces increased protein synthesis, which reflects the gain of lean muscle mass tissue and aids recovery. It is used mainly as part of the cutting cycle and for preparation for competitions, due to its ability to retain muscle strength while getting rid of body fat. Consequently, it has a hardening effect that gives the vascular appearance of bodybuilders.
Drostanolone Propionate has no estrogenic effects and presents moderate anabolic effects and weak androgenic effects:
- increased aggression;
- increased LDL cholesterol;
- acne and oily skin;
- hair loss;
- elevated blood pressure;
- fluid retention;
- In women, Drostanolone Propionate increases the masculinization of the body (enlargement of the clitoris, voice deepening, facial/body hair growth).
Trenbolone acetate, sold under brand names such as Finajet and Finaplix among others, is an androgen and anabolic steroid (AAS) medication which is used in veterinary medicine, specifically to increase the profitability of livestock by promoting muscle growth in cattle. It is given by injection into muscle.
Side effects of trenbolone acetate include symptoms of masculinization like acne, increased body hair growth, scalp hair loss, voice changes, and increased sexual desire. The drug is a synthetic androgen and anabolic steroid and hence is an agonist of the androgen receptor (AR), the biological target of androgens like testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It has strong anabolic effects and highly androgenic effects, as well as potent progestogenic effects, and weak glucocorticoid effects. Trenbolone acetate is an androgen ester and a short-lasting prodrug of trenbolone in the body.
Trenbolone acetate was discovered in 1963 and was introduced for veterinary use in the early 1970s. In addition to its veterinary use, trenbolone acetate is used to improve physique and performance, and is purchased from black market suppliers. The drug is a controlled substance in many countries and so non-veterinary use is generally illicit.
