Boldenone is a powerful anabolic agent with moderate androgenic and estrogenic effects. Something like weak testosterone. Under construction is not so different from testosterone, the main difference is the double bond on the first and fourth position. However, it is quite good at causing growth, but mainly through combinations of androgenic potential and other media than androgenic and estrogen receptors.
The strange thing about its androgenic component is that it is not mostly mediated through the 5-alpha-reductase form, as is the case with most steroids. However, it produces a very effective 5-alpha-reduced form (dihydroboldenone, an average of 7 times more anabolic than testosterone) but has a very low affinity for the 5-alpha reductant. This leads to the conclusion that a large part of the anabolic effect induced by boldenone results from the binding of the hormone to the androgen receptors. This may also be why it has been used in veterinary medicine with such great success. Because of the differences in species metabolism, it always produced good results.
As most anabolic steroids increase muscle mass by increasing nitrogene retention and positively impacting synthesis and resynthesis (re-synthesis) of proteins. This is an action that is not necessarily caused by androgenic agents as is the case with nandrolone. What causes boldenone what other steroids do not give? It provides, in a way, the supply of essential ingredients for protein synthesis by increasing appetite.
This makes it easier to provide a large amount of food (especially protein) needed to achieve good gains when using SAA. This is a great advantage over you think, because many people claim that this factor is primarily responsible for very good gains when using boldenone. This theory can defend itself as there is practically no evidence of anabolic activity that could provide such an increase.
Its estrogenic activity is small but present. This is more positive than negative effects. Boldenone’s aromatization is too small to produce real problems in normal doses (300-400 mg / week), and gynecomastia or overdose problems are unlikely. Although light aromatization is desirable as estrogen also mediates anabolic activity. It can be responsible for better glucose utilization (glycogen recovery after exercise) and boosting growth hormone production. But – most importantly, estrogen is responsible for the improvement of androgen receptors, allowing hormones that work to produce a powerful anabolic effect. This is why hormones that are strong androgens, but also strongly aromatized, allow for the best gains. In this case, boldenone is perhaps the most suitable steroid because of moderate levels of estrogen that allow you to reap the benefits and avoid side effects of aromatization. And certainly this proportion is responsible for increasing appetite.
People who practice sports other than bodybuilding and strength sports will also benefit from boldenone because it stimulates the release of erythropoeitin in the kidneys. Erythropoeitin is a hormone known as EPO and is used massively by endurance athletes as it gives the body a signal to increase the production of red blood cells (erythrocytes). Red blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen, which means that more oxygen will be transported to improve endurance before lactic acid develops (causing pain and lowering activity). After a short time – it increases your capacity. For bodybuilders this may be useful during sculpture.
In this case, boldenone combined with a non-aromatic steroid like Winstrol or Primobolan can be very useful for sculpting. The only problem can be the constant struggle with increased appetite. It is therefore a better idea to combine increased doses of boldenone with a steroid such as testosterone or anadrol to achieve very large increases.
Side effects of boldenone are limited. At normal doses, 300-400 mg / week, estrogenic effects are almost imperceptible, only in those hypersensitive to estrogen. In terms of androgenic side effects, prolonged or very intensive use of boldenone may cause slight virilization, for example acne or body hair growth.
Linking and use
Boldenone needs to be injected weekly (remaining active for more than 4 weeks), but since it is available in 25 mg / ml ampoules, users often choose to inject 25-50 mg ED or EOD. Using 300-400 mg / week seems to be a good recommendation. It is not hepatoxic in practically any degree so it can be used in a long cycle. The emergence of underground (specifically doping) forms of boldenone at higher concentrations (200 mg / ml) made it easier to inject only once a week. What is better is that the release is faster and the cumulative effect (peak) much earlier. Talking about cumulative effects, it should be noted that the best results with boldenon are achieved when applied to the charging phase.
Boldenone is most commonly used for sculpture. For this purpose, it is combined with trenbo
