Pharmacologically, Primobolan is known as the hormone Methenolone or Methenolone Acetate. The latter is the chemical name of the active ingredient in Primobolan tablets. The Methenolone hormone is well recognized and quite popular. It is, in fact, most common among first-time body builders seeking to gain lean muscle before gaining more experience using performance-enhancing steroids.
Primobolan being a DHT-derivative, it holds many of the same properties of its parent hormone. For example its not aromatized by the aromatase enzyme into Estrogen at any dose. Therefore, any individual looking to utilize it should never experience any Estrogen related side effects from using it alone. This means that it completely avoids the potential for any of the following side effects: water retention and bloating, elevated blood pressure (as a result of water retention), possible fat gain/retention, and gynecomastia. Without the puffy and soft look that aromatizable anabolic steroids provide the physique, Primobolan is regarded by the majority of bodybuilders and athletes as a preferred ‘cutting’ compound considered very useful for pre-contest cycles and fat loss and cutting phases.
One of the features of Primobolan that deserves credit is the fact that it is a damn good androgen receptor. This simply means that it is good at enhancing the action of male hormones and counteracting the unwanted side effects of female hormones such as gynecomastia. Just this quality alone makes the steroid extremely sought-after in steroid-using circles. The steroid is preferred by many men who want to build muscles without running the risk of developing breasts. Using Primobolan means that people do not have to use anti-estrogen medication.
The steroid improves retention of nitrogen in the muscles which helps in creating of good quality muscle tissue. There are two forms of the steroid. It can either be taken orally or injected directly into the bloodstream. Both forms of the steroid are equally effective although the effects of orally ingested Primobolan may take longer to notice. Orally ingested primobolan is designed to pass through the liver unchanged. Men need 100 mg of the steroid per day whereas women need only 10 mg.
