Ingredients: Testosterone propionate 30 mg, Testosterone phenylpropionate 60 mg, Testosterone isocaporate 60 mg, Testosterone decanoate 100 mg
Sustanon is a very popular steroid which is highly appreciated by its users since it offers several advantages when compared to other testosteron compounds.
Sustanon is a mixture of four different testosterones which, based on the well-timed composition, have a synergetic effect. This special feature has two positive characteristics for the athlete.
Second, the effect of the four testosterones is time-released so that Sustanon goes rapidly into the system and remains effective in the body for several weeks.
Due to the propionate also included in the steroid, Sustanon is effective after one day and, based on the mixed in decanoates, remains active for 3-4 weeks. Sustanon has a distinct androgenic effect which is coupled with a strong anabolic effect.
Therefore it is well suited to build up strength and mass. A rapid increase in bodiestrength and an even increase in body weight occur. Athletes who use Sustanon report a solid muscle growth since it results in less water retention and also aromatizes less than either testosterone enanthate or cypionate.
Indeed many bodybuilders who use testosterone and fight against distinct water retention and an elevated estrogen level prefer Sustanon over other long-acting depot testosterones.
It is further noticed that Sustanon is also effective when relatively low doses are given to well advanced athletes.
It is interesting to note that when Sustanon is given to athletes who have already used this compound in the same or lower doses, it leads to similar good results as during the previous intake.
Sustanon is usually injected at least once a week, which can be stretched up to 10 days. The dosage in bodybuilding and powerlifting ranges from 250 mg every 14 days up to 1000 mg or more per day.
Since such high dosages are not recommended and fortunately are also not taken in most cases the rule is 250-1000 mg/week. A dosage of 500 mg/week is completely sufficient for most, and can often be reduced to 250 mg/week by combining with an oral steroid.
Sustanon is well tolerated as a basic steroid during treatment which stimulates the regeneration, gives the athlete a sufficient “kick” for intense training units, and next to the already mentioned advantage rapid strength increase and solid muscle gain distinguishes itself also by its compatibility.
In order to gain mass fast Sustanon is often combined with Deca Durabolin, Dianabol or Anadrol while athletes who are more into quality prefer combining it with Parabolan, Winstrol, Anavar or Primobolan Depot.
Although Sustanon does not aromatize excessively when taken in a reasonable dosage many people, in addition, also take an anti estrogen such as Nolvadex and/or Proviron to prevent possible estrogen-linked side effects.
It is recommended that women not take depot testosterones since the androgen level would strongly increase and virilizalion syniploins could result. Despile this, it is not uncommon for female competing athletes in the higher weight classes to take testosterone since it helps in remaining “competitive.”
Women who use “Testo” or who would like to try it should limit its use to either only testosterone propionate or inject a maximum of 250 mg Sustanon every 10-14 days over a period of no longer than six weeks.
At this point we would like to emphasize once more that steroid novices should stay away from all testosterone compounds since, at this time, they simply do not need them.
The side effects of Sustanon are similar to those of Testosterone enanthate only that they are usually less frequent and less severe.
Depending on the predisposition and dosage, the user can experience the usual androgenic-liked side effects such as acne, aggressiveness, sexual overstimulation, oily skin, accelerated hair loss, and reduced production of the bodies own hormones.
Water retention and gynecomastia are usually within limits with the “Sustas” or are not as massive as with enanthate and cypionate. Liver damage is unlikely with Sustanon however, in very high dosages, elevated liver values can occur which, after discontinuing use of the compound, usually go back to normal.
Availability & fakes
Sustanon is well distributed on the black market and readily available. Unfortunately a large number of these compounds are more or less good fakes. When someone offers you ampules which do not have a paper label but a simple, usually red, imprint, these are certainly fakes.
Mostly these are Polish Omnadren from which the original label was removed and replaced by a Sustanon imprint Original Sustanon which almost exclusively is manufactured by Organon Company. It is more difficult to find the less frequently available original “Susta.”
On the black market mostly the Russian or Indian Sustanon 250 are available however, large quantities of this original Sustanon 250 are smuggled to Europe and the U.S. The Russian Sustanon 250 comes in a plastic film; printed in blue ink on the back are the name of the compound, the manufacturer, and the included substances. This imprint is either stamped on aluminum foil or on white paper. Five ampules are combined in one strip whereas each ampule is packaged individually.
Original Sustanon 250 usually costs $16-19 per ampule on the black market and is certainly worth the price. In the meantime there are also several fakes of the Russian version which, however, can be easily identified by the rounded corners of the label. The originals always have a label with sharp corners.
