Testolone, is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARMS) that is in development by Radius Health, Inc. The medical goal of RAD-140 is to replace testosterone as part of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) without causing the usual side effects seen with exogenous testosterone, specifically those of androgenic nature. Therefore, it is not surprising that athletes have parlayed these benefits into helping them reach their fitness goals, contributing to testolone’s growth in popularity.
If we simplify the idea behind this compound, Testolone was designed to behave like testosterone in the body, but without causing side effects. It does this by having a massive 85:1 anabolic to androgenic ratio. What’s more, it also blocks the effects of testosterone in the prostate, limiting suppression and testes shrinkage.
Meanwhile, anabolic steroids that are derived from testosterone will have a tremendous impact on the reproductive system, including shutdown of the pituitary glands, or sending LH (luteinizing hormone) and FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone) levels to near 0 very quickly. As a result, many of those who abuse anabolic steroids will never be able to recover their natural hormonal levels, and will be forced to use hormone replacement therapy for the rest of their lives.
A boost in testosterone within the body without the common steroid side effects leads to an increase in lean body mass, a decrease in body fat, more energy, stronger libido, and better overall wellness. Consequently, with Testolone athletes can get stronger, faster, and bigger safely. Additionally, it will not bring about the androgenic problems of testosterone in those seeking testosterone replacement therapy or those wanting a testosterone base in their cycles.
In addition to that, those who already suffer from low testosterone levels due to medical issues, or simply because they abused anabolic steroids in their past, will be able to use testolone as their testosterone replacement.
Testolone does not have many of the side effects of anabolic steroids.
Anabolic steroids will suppress the HPTA to levels where the pituitary glands are barely functioning or do not work at all. On the other hand, Testolone has been shown in studies to be minimally suppressive, and it does not interact with the prostate in the same way as testosterone does.
Testolone can be used as your ‘testosterone base’ in a steroid cycle, but this is not the only way of using it. The beauty part is that it will give you additional benefits without increasing side effects, so it is definitely a good addition to any steroid cycle. Furthermore, it can also be used as part of a SARMS stack, and if you want additional endurance and fat loss benefits, stack in Cardarine or Ostarine with it.
Since it is minimally suppressive, RAD-140 can also be used solo or included in a bridge.
The half life of RAD-140 is estimated to be of 12-18 hours. Thus, once a day dosage would work just fine, but many choose to split dose twice a day.
The proper starting dosage for testolone in men is 10 milligrams (mg) per day, and 5mg per day for females.
A bit of experience for you guys. I have seen some people recommend dosages of 30, or even 40mg’s a day. This is because Testolone is highly faked or underdosed, so the people recommending those dosages are likely selling poor products for cheap prices.
Given the fact that Testolone carries no androgenic effects it is safe for females to use.
