When it comes to powerful anabolic steroids, the Trenbolone hormone is king; in-fact, the steroid most commonly referred to as Tren is perhaps the most effective anabolic steroid of all time. A truly versatile steroid in every sense of the word, Tren is perfect for all cycles, and while it's most commonly known as a cutting steroid, it can be the missing link to many bulking and strength plans. Of course, while powerful, Tren is not without problems; in-fact, this can be for some men an extremely harsh steroid, but most will be fine if they supplement responsibly.
A veterinarian grade anabolic steroid developed for the purpose of beefing up cattle; on this basis alone it shouldn't be too hard to see how this can be such a fantastic bulking agent. In any case, when the hormonal compound first came to the market, it would be in the form of Finaplix pellets; small subcutaneous implant pellets, and such pellets are still available today. Some performance enhancers actually buy their own Finaplix pellets and convert it into injectable Tren, Trenbolone Acetate specifically. This brings us to another important note; there are actually three common forms of Tren; Trenbolone Acetate, Trenbolone Enanthate and Trenbolone Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate; the latter most commonly known as Parabolan. In any case, all three contain the same active Trenbolone hormone, and that's exactly what we're concerned with today.
Trenbolone is a powerful and we truly do mean powerful 19-nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic steroid that carries a strong progestin nature. A non-aromatizing steroid, Tren carries an anabolic rating of 500 and an androgenic rating of 500 as well; that's five times as powerful than testosterone in both categories, and more importantly, its translating action matches up perfect to its ratings.
Regardless of the form you have in hand, as you recall from above there are three common forms, all Tren carries the same primary traits; in-fact, this is an anabolic steroid that carries nearly every last primary anabolic steroidal trait, but to levels of power most other steroids can only dream about. All in all, there are seven primary traits that Tren will possess, and by understanding them we can easily begin to understand the benefits; the primary traits include:Enhanced Protein Synthesis: protein is the building block of all muscle tissue, and protein synthesis refers to the rate by-which cells build proteins. With synthesis now enhanced, we can build tissue not only at a faster rate, but we can build more tissue, and just as importantly preserve more tissue when under stress.
The side effects of Tren largely surround its progestin nature and simply the dosing and genetic predisposition as well as individual response. As a non-aromatizing steroid, water retention will not occur with this steroid, and this also helps with high blood pressure; however, large doses of the Trenbolone hormone have been shown to be a little unfriendly to blood pressure levels. Further, hair loss can also be a concern for those predisposed to male pattern baldness, and while Finasteride can offer protection it is not a concern for men who are not predisposed.
Despite no aromatizing activity, as stated Tren carries a strong progestin nature, and this can make gynecomastia a strong possibility in men who are sensitive or who supplement with too much. In any case, the same aromatase inhibitors used to combat gynecomastia with aromatizing steroids will work with Tren as they will protect against progesterone-based gynecomastia. It should be noted; while unlikely with responsible use, Tren can cause kidney damage with high doses or extremely long-term use.
Of course, while the above side effects of Tren largely fall into the realm of possible, when it comes to guaranteed there is a guaranteed effect; testosterone suppression. The Trenbolone hormone is extremely suppressive to natural testosterone production, and for this reason exogenous testosterone supplementation is needed in-order to prevent a low testosterone condition.
Then we have the big ones, and when it comes to the side effects of Tren this will be why many men cannot supplement with the hormone. Tren has been shown to have the ability to cause anxiety, insomnia, night sweats and rapid heart rate; in-fact, if it does it will do so at a level you probably cannot imagine. While these effects can be problematic, the worst part is they can be unpredictable. Absolutely, ridiculous doses may very well promote such effects; however, some men will fall prey even with responsible doses, even with low doses due to a poor response, and as a result will not be able to supplement with this steroid. Again, there is no way to predict this anymore than we can predict if you're going to be allergic to certain foods when you are born.
When it comes to the benefits of Tren, by looking at the seven primary traits they should already be fairly easy to see. Even so, we'll go into a little more detail so that you can know what to expect. Of course, in truth, when it comes to benefits, in many ways we could just say everything. Even so, below we have listed the actual benefits of Tren, what you can actually expect:
