Testosterone Cypionate, formed by Alpha Pharma, is one of most common and widely used steroid by athletes. Once the steroid is injected in the body through injection, it is then stockpiled in a part of body called depot. Then after a short span of time it is gradually stored in the body and within the period of 1-2 days from the day it is injected in the body. Then sometime later the testosterone is progressively loose in the body within the coming 12 days and then entirely comes out from the depot in probably 3 weeks.
Similarly with all other testosterone products, cypionate also contains significantly strong anabolic activity, in combination with an evident androgenic element. This would help in gaining strength and mass for muscle significantly. A clearly visible raise in libido can also be obtained via cypionate. Respite in muscle pain, speedy recovery and significant raise in the rate and time of physical outcome because of highly oxygenated blood and noticeable raise in the number of red blood cells are considered as an extra benefits of cypionate. If the cypionate is taken at equitable doses, the problem of aromatization is eradicated while there are a number of individuals who desire to take anti-estrogen and for these type of individuals, tamoxifen citrate or mesterolone is recommended.
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) can be utilized with proper combination of clomiphene citrate and tamoxifen citrate. This can also be advantageous to maintain the steadiness in hormone structure.
In United States of America, cypionate is found to be the most recommended type of testosterone. In addition to that, cypionate is quite uncommon to be found to recommend apart from USA. In most of the world, a similar testosterone product called Enanthate is being used.
Often people who have used both have found saying that there is almost no difference between the two testosterone products. They consider cypionate indistinguishable with any other testosterone product in terms of long lasting effects.
The main benefit of using cypionate is that even if it is injected only once in a week then it would provide some quality muscles building in terms of size and strength of the muscles and overall body. It would not be wrong to say that almost every major bodybuilders participating in any competition have used it for very longer period of time in order to build them up. I have personally used this drug with the dosage ranging between 250-2000mg every week and the outcomes very pretty clear and satisfactory considering the side effects that were present with this dosage. But the most suitable gain was with the usage of 750mg every week with minimum amount of side effects. The side effects that might occur while increasing the above dosage are quite harmful and experts do not consider that gain as profitable because of the side effects.
Testocyp by Alpha-Pharma is an injectable steroid, its active substance is Testosterone Cypionate.
Testosterone Cypionate is long acting formulation of testosterone which is indicated in the treatment of individuals who have absent or very low levels of the hormone. It is sometimes known as Depo testosterone. The testosterone is esterified and thus is quite long acting. It is only available in an injection form. Testosterone Cypionate is typically dissolved in sesame or cotton seed oil and injected into the buttock area. Testosterone Cypionate is slowly released from the injection site for about 7-12 days.
Testosterone Cypionate is used to treat conditions in made where there is a failure of testosterone to be secreted like: primary failure of the testes to make the hormone, failure of the pituitary to release Gonadotropins. Testosterone Cypionate is taken principally to enhance the body and stimulate the psyche. Most bodybuilders who take Testosterone Cypionate claim that it causes spontaneous bursts in energy associated with increased aggression. This feature of the Testosterone Cypionate is used primarily by weight lifters and professional wrestlers. Many athletes also claim that Testosterone Cypionate improves their ability to perform exercise at intense levels.
It is only made for intramuscular injection. Testosterone Cypionate can be injected into the buttock area once every 7-12 days. The majority of the Testosterone Cypionate is bound to protein and only 2% is free. Testosterone Cypionate is supposed to be injected once a week, but there are some bodybuilders who do inject it every other day. This is not recommended and can lead to the formation of abscess, sores and skin infections. The injection site needs to be rotated if the injections are to be continued for a long time. The oily suspension should not be injected into the arms or the abdomen. The dose of Testosterone Cypionate ranges from 50mg-400mg/week, depending on the condition being treated. Bodybuilders tend to inject the higher amount of the Testosterone Cypionate 200mg-400mg/week. Testosterone Cypionate is then slowly absorbed into the blood stream over the next few days.
When Testosterone Cypionate is injected at low doses, the side effects are rare. However, long term use is known to be associated with a varied number of side effects – all of which are reversible when the drug is stopped. For the female who decides to take testosterone, there are virilizing side effects which are not always reversible when the drug is stopped. Like all anabolic steroids, testosterone also has a number of side effects which includes: nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, swelling, increased /decreased libido, headaches, acne, oily skin, mental change including anger, depression, insomnia, diaphoresis, loss of hair, gynecomastia.
When taken by females, the drug definitely can cause virilizing effects like: deepening of voice, hoarseness, excess hair growth, enlarged clitoris, irregular menstrual cycles.
