Trenbolone is a very well-known injectable anabolic steroid, and milligram for milligram it is the most powerful anabolic steroid commercially and conventionally available. It is an anabolic steroid that tends to invoke both intimidation as well as amazement among those who read about it. The truth is that although Trenbolone is not as harsh of an anabolic steroid as many make it out to be, it is by no means a beginner compound and does need to be taken seriously when the use of it is considered. It is typically used by intermediate to advanced level anabolic steroid users, and seldom used by beginners until several cycles of experience has been built up.
Trenbolone is a derivative of Nandrolone , and alongside Nandrolone, is in the family of anabolic steroids known as 19-nor compounds. This category of 19-nor steroids is named as such due to the fact that these compounds contain a specific alteration at the 19th carbon on the anabolic steroid’s molecular structure. This alteration, which is the removal of the 19th carbon, is not seen in any other anabolic steroid classes. It also contains other alterations in this area that grant it enhanced androgenic strength (its ability to bind at a much greater strength to the androgen receptor), as well as a high degree of resistance to metabolic breakdown within the body.
Trenbolone, as a result, expresses five times the androgenic and anabolic strength of testosterone, with a rating of 500 for each. It also expresses characteristics that grant it the ability to promote weight gain with nearly all of it being muscle mass, and no water retention. Trenbolone has also been found to stimulate endogenous production of the very anabolic hormone IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor 1) in muscle tissue, adding to its anabolic capabilities. Ultimately, the reason for Trenbolone’s inability to make the user hold onto water and become bloated is due to the fact that its chemical modifications render it unable to aromatize into estrogen at any dose what so ever.
Three major esterified forms of Trenbolone exist: Trenbolone Acetate, Trenbolone Enanthate, and Trenbolone Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate. The most popular and most widely used of the three is the fast-acting acetate variant. Trenbolone’s history generally begins in 1967, where it was studied repeatedly in France by Roussel-UCLAF. It was eventually picked up by Hosescht in England and manufactured in its acetate ester format, and sold under the brand name of Finajet. In France, Roussel marketed it as Finaject. Both companies were in reality owned and operated by Roussel AG of Germany. Both brand names of the same product (Trenbolone Acetate) were used on the prescription drug market as human grade medicines before they were discontinued and disapproved for use in humans towards the 1980s. Trenbolone Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate was sold under the brand name parabolan as well during this time before encountering the same fate as the other two in the 1990s.
Today, Tren remains officially utilized as a veterinary drug, mostly in the application of promoting mass in cattle used to provide food. It remains a peculiar compound of interest to the medical establishment, however, as scientific studies continue to continue with Trenbolone, with scientists discovering new applications for human use and recommending its re-introduction as a human grade medicine. To date, however, Trenbolone is still unapproved for human use by the FDA and all current Trenbolone products are generally underground lab (UGL) products.
