What Is Masteron?
Masteron is an anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) known by the pharmaceutical name of Drostanolone Propionate/Enanthate. It is also commonly referred to as Masto, Mast and Mastabol. The chemical structure of the compound is 2a-methyl-androstan-3-one-17b-ol. The steroid comes in several different forms that are either consumed orally or injected directly into the body.
Masteron is extremely effective at retaining muscle mass and body strength while losing unnecessary fat from the body. The steroid is commonly used by professional athletes and bodybuilders who prepare themselves for contests. It enables them to increase hardness and density of muscle in a short time period without contributing to fat increase.
Masteron has a half life of 1-2 days when used as Drostanolone Propionate, and 5-6 days for Drostanolone Enanthate. The normal range of a dose ranges from 50mg/ml to 200mg/ml.
Masteron was originally developed as an anti-estrogen with the purpose of treating breast cancer. Used in combination with Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM), it resulted in decrease of estrogen levels. While the drug isn’t used in treatment of breast cancer anymore, its anti-estrogenic properties explain why it is still preferred by many athletes as one of the most effective anabolic steroids on the markets.
How It Works?
A derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), Masteron doesn’t convert to estrogen through aromatization. The anti-estrogenic characteristics of Masteron are considered to be primarily responsible for this. It is for this reason that Masteron qualifies as a highly effective drug for anabolic steroid users. Masteron inhibits the aromatase enzyme that converts free testosterones in the body to estrogen. Due to this inhibition, the body gets a larger amount of free testosterones, which are responsible for building muscle mass.
By inhibiting the production of estrogens, Masteron also yields other positive effects, such as excess water retention and bloating, resulting in a lean and dry body with very prominent muscles.
Despite its evident anti-estrogenic properties, Masteron must not be consumed in excess. It also has androgenic and anabolic properties that are known to inhibit the natural release of testosterone. After the recommended consumption, post cycle therapy is necessary to recover from the effects of Masteron and recover the natural cycle of testosterone production in the body.
Forms of Masteron
Masteron is generally available in two different forms: Masteron Propionate and Masteron Enanthate. While the propionate version effects faster and has to be administered on a daily basis, the enanthate version acts more slowly on the body and is typically administered once or twice every week.
Masteron Propionate is available in different forms, including tablets, capsules, injections and sprays. It is popularly used as pre-contest or cutting drug. It is known to increase performance, muscle size and function, stamina and aggression. It prevents the conversion of free testosterones and inhibits the formation of estrogen to yield these positive effects.
A great advantage of using this steroid is its ability to improve strength without increasing body fat. This allows athletes to improve their performance through weight classes without risking weight gains that shift them to higher weight categories. For this reason, Masteron has become one of the top cutting steroids on the market.
There is clear evidence to testify the abilities of drostanolone proprionate as an anti-estrogen agent. It results in a leaner physique with improved body metabolism and gives a hardening effect that cannot be achieved by many other steroids. For best results, athletes are advised to reduce their body fats naturally before consuming this compound for further benefits.
Masteron prevents the retention of water in the body, causing you to feel full and tight after pumping muscles in the gym.
The compound is stacked with other agents for best results. The compounds used for stacking vary depending on your body type and the results you desire.
Also called drostanolone enanthate, Masteron enanthate remains in the body for several weeks. It is regarded as one of the most effective steroids to reduce the retention of water. Its anti-aromatase and anti-estrogen effects are also responsible for increasing the bioavailability of other steroids in an anabolic steroid cycle.
It is particularly known for its ability to prevent the conversion of free testosterones and is stacked with other compounds for best effects.
A controlled use of Masteron is not known to cause any side-effects. However, when the steroid is abused, it may cause health problems, such as acne, oily skin, facial hair growth, hair loss and deepening of voice. In men, an overdose has an increased risk of pattern baldness, increased secretion of sebum and increased acne. In women, it can trigger the development of male traits, such as growth of body and facial hair and deepening of voice. Other irregularities include menstrual problems and clitoral enlargement.
Masteron abuse can also cause the suppression of natural testosterone production in the body. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to use post cycle therapy to enable the body to recover from the effects of the steroid and resume the natural process of hormone production.
Anyone with a prevailing health condition, such as testicular cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, testicular atrophy, kidney damage, liver problems, high blood pressure, stroke and respiratory problems should avoid the use of Masteron enanthate or propionate.
Summary: While clearly a powerful anabolic steroid with amazing anti-estrogenic properties, Masteron overdose must be avoided in all circumstances. Like many other steroids, it is not suitable for use by anyone with a prevailing health condition. For the rest of the people though, it is an amazing transformation agent that can help you quickly realize your goals of a stronger body with more muscle density. Its anti-estrogenic properties are essential in taking care of most of the side-effects experienced by use of anabolic steroids, such as high blood pressure and water retention. Post cycle therapy is also essential after the use of Masteron. Depending on your goals, you may choose to stack Masteron with other products to achieve optimal results. The product is highly toxic and dangerous. We advice against using it.
