Trenbolone is a synthetic 19-nortestosterone derivative. It is a potent anabolic steroid that was used in veterinary practice to beef up livestock. It gained popularity among the fitness industry due to its versatility and potency. To date is the most common used steroid for bulking and cutting phase. This is because it has numerous benefits.
Knowing about trenbolone benefits is important so as to know when to expect the benefits and how to provide synergy In terms of diet, supplements and exercise. Trenbolone has the ability to boost the body’s production of Insulin like growth factor 1, IGF-1. Its ability to do this is more pronounced than with testosterone. IGF-1 binds to androgen receptors and leads to increased protein synthesis leading to increased muscle bulk, strength and fat loss. Trenbolone also increases the cellular ability for recovery and regeneration. IGF-1 is also present in adipose tissues and when activated, leads to fat burning.
Like other anabolic steroids, trenbolone increases the renal production of erythropoietin. This hormone acts on the bone marrow. The bone marrow then increases the number of red blood cells it synthesizes. Increased red blood cells mean the blood has a higher capacity to carry oxygen to exercising muscles. Adequate oxygen delivery to muscles especially during anabolic exercises is important. This is because enough oxygen reduces muscular injury and production of lactic acid. For this reason, there is faster recovery, more tolerance and less muscular injury after intense exercises.
The other benefit of trenbolone is the fact that the Aromatase enzyme is not able to break it down. Therefore, trenbolone lacks the estrogenic effects of anabolic steroids. The fact that it does not aromatize to estrogen means it has less water retaining effects when compared to other anabolic steroids.
In all its glory, trenbolone is associated with some unpleasant side effects when not used properly.
