    Testosterone - Esters- What do You Prefer - Why?


    [FONT=verdana]What is Testosterone?


    Testosterone is the key male hormone - It is an Androgen Meaning That is responsible for the development of male sexual characteristics.

    Testosterone is a type of Androgen produced by Leydig cells primarily by the testes/testicles in men and in the ovaries by women.
    Small quantities are also produced by the adrenal glands in both sexes.

    During puberty, testosterone helps build a young man's muscles, Deepens his voice, grow hair on his body, grow the size of his penis and testicles.

    In men testosterone helps regulate a number of functions in the body, below is just a few.
    Sexual desire
    Bone MASS and Density
    Fat Regulation and Distribution
    Muscle Size and Strength
    RBC Production

    As we become older our testosterone levels begin to drop.
    By about 40 years of age our circulating testosterone levels will begin to drop 1- 2% per year.

    Low testosterone levels have been associated with,
    Decreased libido
    Erectile dysfunction
    Higher Estrogen Levels
    Mood instabilities such as,
    Fatigue
    Depression
    Anger
    Decrease in MUSCLE MASS and STRENGTH
    Decrease in Bone MASS and Mineral Density
    Increase in fat Mass
    Diabetes
    High blood pressure

    Here is Bloodwork that will be required from your dr. To initially diagnose you to see if you qualify for TRT.
    (Testosterone Replacement Therapy)

    Comprehensive Metabolic Panel-
    CBC-
    Lipid Panel-
    Testosterone Free and Total-
    Estradiol Sensitive-
    DHEA-Sulfate-
    TSH-
    PSA-
    LH-
    Sex Hormone Binding Globulin-


    There are many forms of injectable testosterone
    Here are a few .
    TestosteronePropionate,
    Testosterone Enanthate,
    Testosterone Cypionate
    (Sustanon) a combination of different ester
    Test phenylpropionate
    Test undecanoate
    Test isocaproate
    Test decanoate
    Test Suspension

    An 'ester' is basically a chain composed of Hydrogen, Carbon, and Oxygen atoms which are attached to the testosterone molecule which must be broken down in the body once injected.
    Even though the testosterone molecule remains the
    same regardless of the ester. Each one can yield different results depending on how they are metabolized By the individual.

    By adding and ester, injections can be taken as frequently as once a day, EOD, twice per week, or as infrequent as once a week or longer. Without the use of an ester maintaining/stable constant blood levels would be much more difficult to achieve.

    Approximate Testosterone Half Life

    Testosterone Undecanoate. 16-17 days
    Sustanon or Omnadren. 15-18 days
    Testosterone Cypionate. 12-14 days
    Testosterone Enanthate. 10-12 days
    Test Phenylpropionate. 4 - 5. days
    Testosterone Propionate. . 2 - 3. days
    Testosterone Suspension. 1/2 - 1 day

    WHAT is your favorite testosterone to run ?


    and why?


    What are the reasons some of you prefer cyp over enanthate and vice versa?


    Or do you prefer a short ester even thou pinning frequency is much greater?

    or Do you prefer Long esters for Less Pinning?


    Whats your reasoning? Better results, Faster results, less bloat?


    Less pinning?


    Please explain?[/FONT]
