Testosterone Cypionate is responsible for promoting health and well being through enhanced libido, energy, immunity, increased fat loss, gaining and maintaining lean muscle mass, preventing Osteoporosis (loss of bone density), and possible protection against heart disease. Testosterone is also responsible for normal growth and development of male sex organs and maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. Testosterone binds to the Androgen Receptors (AR), which thus causes accelerated muscle gain, fat loss, and muscle repair and growth. These mechanisms are stimulated by activation of the Androgen Receptors (either directly or as DHT), as well as through a hormonal cascade.
There are many possible side effects associated with the use of Testosterone Cypionate. This product has a high level of aromatization into estrogen and coverts to DHT (dihydrotestosterone) as well. Estrogen is the female sex hormone, and too much of it can cause a high risk of gynecomastia, water retention, and other undesirable side effects. DHT can cause male pattern baldness as well as acne.
Also, supplementing Testosterone to your body will result in the shutting down of the body’s natural production of the hormone. The severity of side effects depends mostly on the levels and duration of circulating free testosterone as well as its conversion into other hormones. Testosterone’s anabolic/androgenic effects (as well as side effects) are dependant upon dosage, and the higher the dose the higher the muscle building effect.
Testosterone Cypionate is one of the best mass building anabolics known to man and is a highly recommended as the base of any mass building cycle. An effective dose of this drug for a man is between 200-2000 mg per week.
