Testosterone Cypionate is a powerful anabolic drug that increases muscle mass in the user. It has a perfect anabolic androgenic rating, which means it will convert to estrogen in the body at very high levels. Also, muscle mass gained when using Cypionate will be lost relatively quickly after discontinuing use.
Testosterone Cypionate is an endogenous androgen, which means it will cause the development of masculine characteristics such as deepening of the vocal chords and body and facial hair growth. In the muscle tissue, Cypionate will improve nitrogen retention, causing the muscles to grow by allowing the tissue to store more protein.
Cypionate is best used in short cycles to avoid the effects of its conversion to estrogen. Users often stack Cypionate with other drugs at the beginning of a cycle to bulk up and continue with other drugs once the muscles have developed. A range of 250 to 1000 mg/week is the most common dosage taken, however, some athletes have been known to take much larger doses of the drug
Because Cypionate converts rather easily into estrogen, the usual estrogenic side effects are present – gynocomastia, water retention, reduction of the testicles. Also, Cypionate, if taken over long periods of time will alter the way the body stores fat and can lead to clogged arteries. For this reason, it is not recommended to use Cypionate regularly.
Cypionate is mostly used as an injectible. However, it can also be found in pill form or as a skin patch. There are also many fakes that are sold on the black market. Avoid products made by Lemmon, Goldline and in-ternational Pharmecutical. Real Cypionate is relatively easy to find on the black market and costs $10 to $15 for a 200 or 250 ml vial.
Testosterone Cypionate has been researched for several applications besides just bulking up. It has been tested for its effects on hair loss, helping with prostrate function, hormone replacement therapies for men with dysthymia and to help with recovery from spinal cord injury among others.
