Boldenone is a synthetic steroid anabolic injectable drug, a derivative of the male sex hormone testosterone . It is similar in structure to methandrostenolone . Boldenone is a methandrostenolone molecule that lacks a 17-alpha-methyl group (this part of the molecule makes it possible for methandrostenolone to pass through the liver without breaking down). Strongly stimulates appetite , as well as other anabolic steroids. Stronger than testosterone increases erythropoiesis, mainly due to a larger amount of 5b-metabolites, such as 5b-dihydroboldenone . Used in veterinary medicine and bodybuilding. Despite the differences in the physiology of different animals, it perfectly builds muscle mass and accelerates synthetic processes. Boldenone is chemically a testosterone molecule that has a double bond between carbon 1 and 2. This modification made boldenone as powerful as testosterone in terms of anabolic properties, while the androgenic properties of the drug are half as pronounced. The drug significantly increases the level of red blood cells. It is present on the market mainly in the form of ether – undecylenate , due to which it remains in the blood for about 3-4 weeks. New forms of the drug: boldenone acetate and boldenone propionate have the same effects, the difference is only in the duration of action. The dosage for athletes varies in the region of 400-1000 mg / week. Smaller dosages of boldenone undecylenate are ineffective due to the large weight of the ballast ether “tail”. Aromatizes twice as weakly as the equivalent amount of testosterone. Does not cause significant water retention. Does not have progestogenic activity, but a drop in libidopossibly due to suppression of endogenous testosterone production. In terms of efficiency, it is comparable to nandrolone decanoate, while having significantly fewer side effects.
The optimal dosage of boldenone undecylenate for muscle building is 600-1000 mg, once a week. A smaller dosage is usually ineffective, a larger dosage does not lead to better results, but the risk of side effects increases.
Features of the application
Quite often, boldenone is combined with other anabolic steroids (testosterone propionate, trenbolone enanthate, stanozolol, parabolan and others), thereby achieving a synergistic effect. On average, the duration of the course of boldenone is 10-12 weeks).
Boldenone, due to its low aromatization and ability to enhance the venous pattern, is often used during the “drying” period, however, the greatest effect from taking the drug can be achieved during the mass gain course, because then you can fully use the ability of boldenone to increase appetite .
Although boldenone is about half as androgenic as testosterone, it is better for women to refrain from using it. Like all anabolic steroids, boldenone increases the level of “bad” cholesterol in the blood. Boldenone is well suited for those people who cannot tolerate high androgenic drugs. Enzyme 5a-reductase , converts a small amount of boldenone into dihydroboldenone, which is a fairly powerful anabolic (twice as “stronger” than testosterone), while testosterone is converted by this enzyme into the strongest androgen – dihydrotestosterone, which accounts for most of the androgenic side effects of testosterone. It is precisely because of the inability to convert to dihydrotestosterone that the drug practically does not cause such androgenic side effects as baldness, acne, prostate hypertrophy, etc., and also suppresses testosterone production in the body to a lesser extent (only in therapeutic dosages).
With injections of boldenone (especially in the case of high dosages), acne often occurs in the chest, back and shoulders. But fortunately, this manifestation is eliminated without much effort by applying special lotions or antibacterial soap. In most situations, cases of encountering side effects occur in athletes using boldenone in combination with other drugs with high androgenic activity.
Not infrequently, boldenone causes acne in the area of the chest, shoulders and back. If acne occurs, you should monitor your skin, bathe daily, use all kinds of hygienic body lotions and antibacterial soap.
