2. Testosterone cypionate effect and application prospects
Testosterone cypionate is one of the many synthetic versions of testosterone. It is the second most popular testosterone variant after another synthetic version, Testosterone enanthate. It is usually delivered to the body in the form of an oil-soluble intramuscular injection. In this form, it is called DEPO-Testosterone.
In powder form, Testosterone cypionate is creamy white with nearly no odor. It is stable in air and dissolves in alcohol, vegetable oil, ether, and chloroform but does not dissolve in water.
Testosterone CypionateTestosterone cypionate is basically esterified testosterone, so it has increased lipid solubility. Nearly 90% of an injection is excreted in urine as sulfuric acid and glucuronic acid conjugates of testosterone and its related metabolites. It is not recommended for individuals under 18 years of age. Also, it should not be used by women, especially those who are pregnant, because it may cause damage to the fetus.
Testosterone cypionate is used as a replacement for natural testosterone in men, who are suffering from low testosterone levels. It is a prescription drug and legally speaking, it can be given only when testosterone deficiency has been confirmed through symptoms or blood tests. The body cannot store testosterone, which means if you are suffering from a deficiency you will have to continue taking these injections at regular intervals and in proper doses. Apart from individuals who are suffering from low levels of testosterone, it is also used by many athletes and body builders for its anabolic properties.
Testosterone cypionate can help promote fat loss, increase sex drive, help in gaining muscle mass, and increase the density of bone. Like testosterone, Testosterone cypionate also has an anabolic and androgenic rating of 100. It has a long half-life and a slow release rate of about 8-10 days. It is similar to Testosterone enanthate in its effect and you can even switch between them.
