Trenbolone Acetate is an extremely powerful anabolic steroid and is considered the single greatest anabolic steroid by many performance enhancing athletes. This is one of the most versatile anabolic steroids on the market and can provide benefits quite unlike any other steroid. Trenbolone Acetate is also subject to numerous myths in the anabolic steroid world, but hopefully we’ll be able to dispel these myths and gain a firm understanding of the compound.
Trenbolone Acetate is officially classified as a veterinarian grade anabolic androgenic steroid. The Trenbolone hormone itself was first created in the late 1960’s and the Acetate version would be sold under the names Finajet and Finaject. However, this is not the only Trenbolone compound. The same hormone would appear on the pharmaceutical market under the name Parabolan and was manufactured by Negma Laboratories out of France. This version of Trenbolone was comprised of the same active hormone that makes up Finajet and Finaject with the ester attached being the only exception. Parabolan carries the much larger Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate ester. It would also be the only Tren hormone ever manufactured for human use and would be discontinued in 1997 despite a lot of therapeutic success. See the Parabolan profile for more information.
Hoechst-Roussel, the manufacturer of the original Trenbolone Acetate products, would discontinue its veterinarian line in the late 1980’s. However, during this time they would introduce Finaplix pellets; small subcutaneous implant pellets that contain the active Trenbolone Acetate compound. The pellets were intended to be used in cattle in order to increase the lean tissue of the animal shortly before slaughter. The pellets were so successful they have become a regular and integral part of the livestock market ever since. Numerous performance enhancing athletes have also purchased Finaplix pellets in order to convert them into their own injectable Trenbolone Acetate compound.
While converted Finaplix pellets are common in many enhancement circles, over the years most underground labs have also begun to carry their own line of injectable Trenbolone Acetate. Other than testosterone compounds, it is perhaps the most sought after injectable steroid on the market. The benefits this steroid can provide to a cutting cycle are unmatched. In fact, you could stack numerous other anabolic steroids together and still not reach the level of power in Trenbolone Acetate. It is also one of the best off-season bulking steroids available. Not only will it pack on a lot of mass and cause tremendous gains in strength, it will do so in a cleaner way than most traditional bulking steroids. While it is not the only Tren form available, Trenbolone Acetate is preferred by most athletes. It is much easier to maintain peaked and stable blood levels with this version, and when coupled with the benefits it is not too hard to see why many refer to Trenbolone Acetate as the king of kings.
Trenbolone Acetate Functions & Traits:
Trenbolone Acetate is a 19-nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic androgenic steroid. The 19-nor classification refers to a structural change of the testosterone hormone in that it lacks a carbon atom at the 19th position. This puts Trenbolone Acetate in the same category as Deca Durabolin (Nandrolone Decanoate). In fact, the Trenbolone hormone itself is simply a modified form of the Nandrolone hormone. The Trenbolone hormone carries a double bond at carbons 9 and 11, which in turn slows its metabolism, greatly increases its binding affinity to the androgen receptor, and inhibits it from aromatizing. The resulting change makes Trenbolone one of the most potent anabolic steroids of all time. Simply by looking at its structural ratings, we can begin to see how powerful it is. Trenbolone carries an anabolic rating of 500 and an androgenic rating of 500 is well. Such ratings are based on and measured against the ratings of testosterone, which carries a rating of 100 in both categories.
Beyond its basic hormone structure, Trenbolone Acetate has the small/short Acetate (acetic acid) ester attached to it. The ester is attached in order to control the hormone’s release time post injection. By carrying the Acetate ester, this gives Trenbolone an active half-life of approximately two days. Some data shows its active half-life to be a little less than three days, so forty-eight to slightly less than seventy-two hours would appear to be a good range. This, obviously, makes Trenbolone Acetate a fairly fast acting steroid and will require injections to take place somewhat frequently in order to maintain stable blood levels.
Trenbolone Acetate carries several powerful traits that are commonly associated with numerous anabolic steroids. However, while it carries numerous common traits, it also carries them at a rate of power and efficiency far above and beyond most steroids. Trenbolone Acetate also carries one trait that largely separates it from the rest of the pack and is what’s largely responsible for making it such a valuable hormonal compound.
Like numerous anabolic steroids, Trenbolone Acetate will greatly enhance protein synthesis and nitrogen retention in the muscle tissue. Protein synthesis refers to the rate by which cells build proteins; protein represents the primary building block of muscle. This will promote enhanced anabolism, as well as provide a strong protectant atmosphere during a caloric deficit. It will also largely promote a far greater level of recovery. As for nitrogen retention, the more nitrogen we retain the more anabolic we remain. Conversely, when nitrogen levels fall, this can lead to a catabolic or muscle wasting state. This is due to all lean muscle tissue being comprised of approximately sixteen percent nitrogen. While this is not a large amount, it is enough to make a very big difference. Once again, with enhanced nitrogen retention the anabolic atmosphere is greatly enhanced, tissue is preserved, and recovery is promoted.
