A synthetic injectable anabolic steroid, a derivative of the male sex hormone testosterone. Similar in many respects to metandienone. Boldenone is a molecule of metandienone that lacks the 17-alpha-methyl group (this part of the molecule allows methandrostenolone to pass through the liver without being destroyed). A powerful appetite stimulant. Used in veterinary medicine and culture. Despite differences in animal physiology, it is useful for building muscle mass and accelerating synthetic processes. Chemically, boldenone is a testosterone molecule with a double bond between 1 and 2 carbon atoms.
Thanks to this modification, boldenone has become as potent as testosterone, but its androgenic properties are only half as strong. When comparing the effectiveness of boldenone undesilenate and metandienone, the results in terms of weight gain and strength gain are almost identical. Boldenone is formed mainly as an ester, undesilenate, and therefore persists in the blood for approximately 3-4 weeks. The newer dosage forms: boldenone acetate and boldenone propionate have the same effect, only the length of action differs.
Anabolic index 100%.
Androgenic index – 50%
Estrogenic activity – low
Progestogenic activity – very low
Hepatotoxicity – none
Effects of the drug
Athletes taking boldenone generally report a slow but qualitative increase in muscle mass. The slow action of this drug is due to the long ester (nedesilenate) attached to the boldenone molecule. Nedesilenate is 1 atom longer than decanoate. Therefore, slower and longer muscle growth can be expected with boldenone than with nandrolone. The duration of the course – up to 10 weeks – also depends on this fact. Like nandrolone, boldenone has a long retention time in the body, so athletes should keep in mind that it is competitive. The drug increases endurance and significantly increases appetite. Boldenone significantly stimulates blood circulation. The increased number of red blood cells improves the supply of oxygen to the muscles. This makes this steroid attractive to athletes. Aromatic substances are practically absent. It does not cause significant water retention. It has no progestagenic activity, which means it does not suppress libido. Its effectiveness is similar to that of nandrolone decanoate.
Dosage: 10 ml injection solution – 200, 300, 400 mg/ml.
The optimal boldenone dosage for beginners is 200-400 mg per week (600-1000 mg for experienced users). Lower doses are ineffective due to the high weight of the essential “tail”, higher doses do not bring better results, but increase the risk of side effects.
The course of Boldenone lasts 8-10 weeks.
Interaction with Equipoise
Boldenone combines well with other steroids: Winstrol and Anavar for a drying course; testosterone and trenbolone for a weight-gaining course (in this case, the duration of the course is shortened to 6 weeks, because the combination severely suppresses testosterone production, and antiestrogens must be used during the course. Boldenone reduces the testosterone dose without reducing the anabolic effect, thereby reducing the internal conversion of steroids to estrogens and androgenic activity.
Low androgenic activity allows women to use Boldenone. Virilization phenomena are rare compared to other drugs. Boldenone is one of the few injectable drugs that can be used in female bodybuilding with the lowest risk of side effects. The same double bond gives boldenone resistance to the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. This enzyme converts small amounts of boldenone into dihydro-boldenone, which is a potent androgen (7 times more potent than testosterone). As a result, the product has few androgenic side effects such as baldness, acne, prostate hypertrophy, etc., and less inhibition of testosterone production in the body.
Active ingredient: boldenone undesilenate is found only among veterinary steroids. American Equipoise for horses, Colombian Gnabol for cows and other cattle, German Venobol for chickens. However, athletes make use of it, as evidenced by the incredible popularity and prevalence of these drugs in the West. It must be said that these veterinary drugs are also very beneficial for the human organism.
“Equipoise has a fairly strong anabolic effect along with a moderately pronounced androgenic effect. Equipoise is therefore not a steroid designed to build massive strength and mass in the shortest possible time. Equipoise has a very positive effect on metabolism in the body, i.e. its main effect is increased protein synthesis in muscle cells.
The result is a slow and gradual weight gain, but with a high quality of weight gain that is associated with low retention. Another advantage of the product is that Equipoise is not flavored, which makes it effective when preparing for competitions.
Athletes who combine Equipoise with Winstrol injections prior to competition report superior muscle strength and density. This combination with a high-calorie protein diet provides users with a strong increase in strength and rapid muscle quality growth. Many people are convinced that Equipoise increases appetite.
The success achieved with the product is usually maintained even after its use is discontinued.
Equipoise also stimulates erythropoiesis, which manifests itself in the increased production of red blood cells in the body. This enhances the “pumping” effect of bodybuilding during training. Most athletes need to consume 150-300 mg per week. Many just need 50 mg every other day.
More advanced and ambitious bodybuilders usually take higher doses and achieve excellent results.
Women also respond quite well to Equipoise and achieve good results in muscle gain with little water retention when taking 50-100 mg per week. Higher doses can cause masculinizing phenomena: decreased vocal tone, increased sweat gland secretion, and acne increased libido. In rare cases, increased growth of facial and leg hair.
Men with balance have fewer problems. Since water retention in the body is low, an increase in blood pressure is often not observed. Acne, gynecomastia and increased aggression are rare. The dreaded “steroid fever” that can occur with the use of Equipoise veterinary steroids is rare. For those who initially develop flu-like symptoms, the dose should be promptly reduced. The sensation of heat and associated discomfort will disappear after a few days.
