Sustanon 250 is a testosterone mix / blend originally developed by organon with the goal of creating a “long lasting” means of administering hormone replacement therapy.
The reason why this blend ultimately came to fruition is because some patients needed “around the clock” testosterone coverage – unfortunately, the propionate ester (the most popular ester variety at the time) only offered patients a rapid “surge” of the compound that quickly needed to be replaced with another injection.
With the introduction of sustanon, patients only needed to be injected roughly once every three weeks, which was a welcome change for those who felt that their hormone levels were fluctuating too much through using shorter acting compounds.
Another benefit was of course the fact that this variety required less frequent injections, which too was often seen as an enormous benefit depending on the perspective of the patient.
Some believe that medical use is and always has been where sustanon is best suited, with athletic / esthetic application not necessarily being ideal – but this simply isn’t true as it can actually be used to great effect within this capacity.
The real benefit here is that sustanon can be used either as a means of “stabilising” hormone levels when using particularly suppressive steroids like trenbolone, or as a means of boosting general anabolism over the course of a steroid cycle.
It would perhaps not be put to best use as a primary anabolic agent, but instead serves as an amazing foundation on which to “lay” other items as part of a wider overall stack.
As such, absolutely anybody would be wise to consider using sustanon / testosterone blends in an effort to improve either their appearance or their athletic performance.
Sustanon 250’s testosterone blend
Most testosterones are defined by their names. For example, Testosterone Enanthate is testosterone with an Enanthate ester attached. However there is no Sustanon ester; Sustanon-250 refers to a blend of testosterones attached to four different esters. These four esteres come in different amounts in the solution, and each ester has a well-defined active life in the body. The mixture of these four esters provides 250mg of testosterone per ml of Sustanon 250. Here is the exact composition: Testosterone Propionate: 30mg
- Testosterone Phenylpropionate: 60mg
- Testosterone Isocaproate: 60mg
- Testosterone Decanoate: 100mg
Due to these short esters, Sustanon 250 should be injected at least every three to four days days to maintain maximum testosterone levels.
Some believe that only injecting once every three weeks is enough to maintain peak testosterone levels, and for hormone replacement purposes they may be right – but in this instance we’re concerned with either aesthetic appearance or athletic performance meaning that we’re working to a different schedule all together.
What you’ve got to remember is that by the time you get to the third or fourth day of your anabolic “week” – the propionate ester has already worn off and the phenylpropionate ester will shortly start to do the same.
What this ultimately means is that in order to have the maximum amount of testosterone present within the body for the maximum amount of time, you’ll need to persist with a tri / quad daily injection schedule to “replenish” the bottom end of the mix and ensure that there is no “gap” in your coverage.
Simply put, as soon as the shorter acting esters wear off, that’s the right time to inject again.
Arguably, a daily / alternate daily injection would be the best way to do this as the propionate ester has such a short half life, but this would prove largely unnecessary as three – four days is more than adequate to ensure peak levels.
If you were going to do this (inject daily), there would be little reason to use sustanon and implementing testosterone propionate would instead make far more sense.
Sustanon 250 and Omnadren
Many steroid users to take Sustanon 250 will find that Omnadren is also effective. In fact, almost everything that can be said about Sustanon 250 is also true for Omnadren; these two testosterone mixes have nearly identical impact. The only significant distance is one ester: while the longest ester in Sustanon-250 is Decanoate, the longest ester in Omnadren is Caproate. The dosage of each ester is exactly the same in each blend: 100g of Caproate in Omnadren and 100g of Decanoate in Sustanon-250. All the same, because Caproate has a shorter half-life than Decanoate, Omnadren has an active life of around ten days while Sustanon will remain active for about 15.
Sustanon 250 Advantages
Sustanon 250 offers a plethora of benefits to the user, ranging from increased sex drive to advanced strength and muscle mass. It’s an all encompassing anabolic force that’s capable of totally transforming everyone from a novice to an advanced user.
The reason why testosterone mixes like this are so popular is due to their versatility and around the clock coverage – not only do the users hormone levels remain perfectly stable, but they also offer the individual a wide array of excellent “perks”. The positive benefits of sustanon 250 include but are not limited to: Enhanced muscle mass
- Enhanced fat burning
- Enhanced strength
- Enhanced libido
- Protection against suppressive steroids like nandrolone and trenbolone (meaning that testosterone levels don’t dip too far)
- The enhancement of other anabolic steroids making for a more powerful cycle overall
- An enhanced sense of well being
- Enhanced energy levels
These positive traits mean that the user is able to impact almost every element of their physicality and improve everything from their physical performance to their physical appearance.Even though there are some potential adverse effects associated with the use of all testosterone varieties (as we’ll discuss in a moment) this is ultimately considered to be one of the mildest compounds out there overall.
It’s perfect for beginners and advanced anabolic users alike.
Sustanon 250 Risks
There is some degree of risk attached to all types of testosterones, and Sustanon 250 is no exception. The principle is simple: the more you use the product, the greater the results, and the greater likelihood of undesirable side effects.
Yes, unfortunately Sustanon 250 carries the same side effects as every other testosterone compound, Testosterone Enanthate, Testosterone Cypionate or any other single ester or mixture that you can use. Excessive testosterone intake opens the door to aromatization and estrogen-related side effects.
Problems such as gynecomastia, hyptertension, water retention and other estrogenic effects like lower libido are possible. This is why we recommend using a good aromatase inhibitor to complement your testosterone treatment. Coupled with responsible usage, it will considerably diminish the possible risks tied to Sustanon 250.
