Testosterone Cypionate is a testosterone-based steroid that is routinely prescribed by medical practitioners to men who have not developed their secondary male characteristics and opting for testosterone replacement therapy. This derivative of testosterone is also recommended for the reversal of certain infertility complications, if they have been a result of low testosterone in the body.
One of the biggest benefits associated with testosterone cypionate is that it increases the number of red blood cells in the body that lead to a reversal of the side effects associated with anemia or low count of red blood cells.
The molecular weight of testosterone cypionate is 132.1184 g/mol at the base and it has an anabolic/androgenic ratio of 100:100 that means that this derivative of testosterone is as anabolic as androgenic.
The anabolic steroid is also admired for promoting the levels of nitrogen retention and protein synthesis besides facilitating an increase in the level of IGF-1 that is important to the complete growth and development of high-quality muscles. In addition to all these benefits, the testosterone compound is also useful in healing scars by promoting the activity of satellite cells that repair body’s damaged muscles.
The steroid has the ability to increase both strength and size to a considerable extent that further promotes lean tissue and metabolic rate. This highly potent steroid is also effective in reducing the amount of fat in the body and preventing the muscles from muscle-wasting hormones. Professional sportsmen admire the cypionate version of testosterone over other performance enhancing drugs as it enhances the level of aggression and performance in a short span of time, which could easily make a big difference when sportsmen have to train hard in the last few days before a competitive event.
The standard dosage of testosterone cypionate is 300-800 mg per week for men (6-8 weeks). Users of the anabolic steroid can expect a significant gain in terms of muscle mass, muscle definition, body strength, stamina, and performance during a cycle. Testosterone cypionate can be detected over a time of two to three months and has an active life of nearly 15-16 days. It is commonly stacked with Dianabol, Primobolan, Equipoise, and Clenbuterol. Ancillary drugs such as Nolvadex, Clomid, Arimidex, Femara, or Aromasin should be kept (as part of post cycle therapy) handy as use of this testosterone derivative can lead to estrogens, which results in oily skin, acne, and gynecomastia. It is important to note that users of testosterone cypionate should start post cycle therapy three weeks before the final cypionate injection as the steroid is a long ester based testosterone.
