Sustanon is a mixture of 4 forms of testosterone: propionate, phenylpropionate, isocaproate and decanoate. They all have the same effects, but act at different times in the body. Their combination provides a prolonged effect of testosterone and, at the same time, a rapid onset of the cycle. Initially, the drug was launched for use in medicine as a replacement drug (for people with low endogenous testosterone secretion). Today Sustanon 250 mg Prime is very popular in the field of sports.
Positive effects of Sustanon 250 mg Prime
Like all testosterone, Sustanon acts on the anabolic receptors in the muscles and causes them to create more protein. It also retains fluids in the body. Together, these effects provide an increase in muscle mass. On average, testosterone increases the starting weight by 6 kg per month, and the course usually lasts 2 times longer.
In addition, Sustanon slows down the process of catabolism, i.e. it prevents the destruction of proteins. Therefore, training becomes more effective.
The main effects of the use of this hormone:
- increased appetite;
- increased endurance;
- increased libido;
- muscle pumping;
- relief of joint pain.
