Manufacturer: Alpha Pharma
Release form: 10 ampoules of 250 mg/ml
Active ingredient: Testosterone mix (Sustanon)
Induject-250 is a powerful steroid for bodybuilders that has a high androgenic and anabolic effect. Initially, Sustanon was not developed as a drug that promoted an increase in muscle mass. It was synthesized as a therapeutic agent, but the ability to increase muscle mass became very attractive to many athletes.
There are four esters that are included in Sustanon that have different lengths and release times. Testosterone itself has a short half-life which is only a few hours. However, when the esters get down to business, they slightly slow down this release of testosterone and prolong its positive effects.
Properties of Sustanon and its composition
This steroid is a combination of several esters of Testosterone which are:
The composition of the drug also includes oil (as a solution base) and benzyl alcohol (as a preservative).
Simply put, Sustanon 250 contains only a fourth part (250mg) of testosterone in various forms, and only 3 parts (750mg) of auxiliary substances, such as alcohol and oil. In 1ml of Sustanon 250 for example, there is exactly 250mg of the active substance testosterone.
Because each of the forms of testosterone that are part of Sustanon has a different rate of absorption and half-life, this action provides a constantly significant level of the anabolic hormone within the blood for two-three weeks. Even though this level is consistent, many athletes still administer this twice weekly for the maximum effects, as the shorted esters will slowly leave the blood stream after 4-5 days.
Therefore, you can inject Sustanon only once a week if you do not like frequent injections, or twice a week for the maximum benefits and effects. In fact, this drug is not a combined course of several drugs, since each of the components is converted in the body only into testosterone, the only thing that differs is the release time of each ester.
Important: Usually Sustanon is used in cases when it is urgently necessary to replenish the amount of male hormone within the body. And its activity has a positive effect on bone and muscle tissue, stabilizing the sexual function and in addition, significantly reduces harmful cholesterol within the body and increases the hemoglobin levels.
The action is similar to the effect of using any other form of testosterone and these main actions are:
- Gain of muscle mass (about 6kg per month on average).
- Inhibition of the protein breakdown process.
- Improvement of hematopoiesis.
- Increased sexual desire and libido levels.
Intake of Sustanon
Sustanon is released in an injectable form of 10x1ml ampoules. It has been advised by some athletes that it is best to buy Sustanon in ampoules, since the use of rubber seals in vials can slightly harm the active substance over time.
The drug is injected intramuscularly and injections should not be frequent due to the different half-life periods of its components, twice weekly is the most frequent and maximum administration time that should be used. The recommended weekly dosage is from 250mg up to 500mg.
Sustanon is a strong anabolic, which can be used both solo and in combination with other steroids (Dianabol, Nandrolone and Boldenone).
The use for solo cycles is recommended for no more than 10 weeks in duration (in accordance with the instructions). If a longer course is needed, it is necessary to combine this anabolic with gonadotropin drugs such as hCG, due to Sustanon having the properties of lowering the secretion of the body’s own natural testosterone production, hCG can help to prevent this issue.
After a Sustanon course (as well as any steroid), Post-Cycle Therapy (PCT) is necessary to consolidate the resulting effect. It is advisable to resort to hCG injections within this recovery phase if needed also, this is usually adopted after heavy dosages have been taken or this substance has been used for prolonged periods of time.
Sustanon is converted into estrogens easily, which means that it can cause estrogenic gynecomastia, an increase in fat deposits and contributes to the suppression of the production of body’s own testosterone. Sometimes its use is accompanied by an increased temperature and a cold-like condition.
All of these consequences can be avoided if aromatase inhibitors, such as Tamoxifen, are used in small dosages within the cycle and both Clomid and Tamoxifen are used during the PCT.
If any progestin-natured drugs such as Nandrolone or Trenbolone are combined with Sustanon within a cycle, please see our Oral Section for Dostinex (Caber), as this will need to be used as the preventative drug instead of Tamoxifen, as this will become ineffective against any progestin-based issues within the course.
Sustanon is becoming more and more popular every day of every year due to the convenience of its intake, a comfortable length of action and the minimal risk of side effects that are easy to avoid. The only negative effect from its popularity are the many counterfeit and fake version that are hitting the markets. Please choose carefully when ordering your Sustanon!
