Methenolone, Primobolan is an oral/injectable anabolic steroid that is used by bodybuilders to encourage increased lean muscle mass; prevent muscle wastage and enhance physical performance and strength.
In fact, thanks to its long acting and mild anabolic effects – plus its low androgenic properties – it is considered one of the safest anabolic steroids around, as it can confidently be used by both men AND women without fear of liver toxicity or aromatization.
But that’s not all it can do…
It has been found to be beneficial in the treatment of underweight children (malnutrition), premature infants, osteoporosis and sarcopenia.
Methenolone is a derivative of DHT (or to be more precise – is a structurally altered form of DHT). It contains an added double bond at carbon one and two, which helps to increase this hormone’s anabolic nature. It also carries an additional 1-methyl group that protects it from hepatic breakdown. The presence of the acetate ester further protects it from hepatic metabolism.
Its oral form is especially beneficial, as it is the only oral steroid to NOT be a C17-aa steroid. Now whilst the lack of C17-aa means it’s not toxic to your liver, it also means it is mild/considered weak compared to other steroids i.e. most men won’t experience the same level of anabolic activity.
That is why a lot of men prefer to use Primobolan Depot – as the injection is stronger – whilst women usually stick to the oral form due to these very same mild effects.
In many ways Primobolan works like other anabolic steroids. It boosts protein synthesis (to a degree) and it will moderately increase your red blood cell count.
However, it has got three distinguishing features that make it different to the others:
The ideal Primobolan dosage for men is approximately 200-400mg per week, or 50-150mg per day (if you’re competing). For women, this is dramatically less at just 50-100mg a week (although some studies suggest 25-75mgs per day is safe).
