Masteron (Drostanolone prop) 100mg / ml known by trade name Masteron is an injectable oil-based anabolic steroid, derived from Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is a member of the DHT-derived family of anabolic steroids. Other known DHT-derivatives include: Winstrol, Anadrol, Anavar, Primobolan, and a few more. Masteron (Drostanolone prop) 100mg / ml is considered a moderate strength anabolic steroid with anabolic rating: 62 – 130 and low androgenic strenght: 25 – 40. Also known as: Masteron, Drostanolone, Dromostanolone, Drostanolone Propionate, Drostanolone Enanthate.
All anabolic steroid analogues and derivatives are derivates of the three natural anabolic steroids found in the human body:Testosterone,Dihydrotestosterone,Nandrolone.
Biochemistry of Masteron (Drostanolone prop) 100mg / ml
Masteron is a modified form of Dihydrotestosterone, with a methyl group at the 2nd carbon (carbon alpha) atom. This modification is responsible for the anabolic strength increase. This methyl group makes it harder for the enzyme 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase to metabolize Masteron. This enzyme is abundantly present in muscle tissue, and is responsible for degrading any DHT into two inactive metabolites: 3-Alpha Androstanediol and 3-Beta Androstanediol. Because of this enzyme DHT is not anabolic in muscle tissue at all. It is believed that if the enzyme 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase was neutralized, DHT would actually be a very powerful anabolic steroid. Drostanolone’s methyl group addition makes it imune to this enzyme.Drostanolone is injected into the body as an ester (bonded to either Propionate or Enanthate). Enzymes cleave off the ester from the Masteron molecule – which takes varying amount of time depending on which ester was used. This process causes the gradual release rate and extended half-life of the steroid. Drostanolone Propionate has a half-life of 2.5 days, while Drostanolone Enanthate has a half-life of 10 days.
Masteron (Drostanolone prop) 100mg / ml Functions & Traits:
Drostanolone Propionate is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic steroid. Specifically, Masteron is the DHT hormone that has been structurally altered by the addition of a methyl group at the carbon 2 position, This protects the hormone from the metabolic breakdown by the 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme, which is found in the skeletal muscle. It also greatly increases the hormone’s anabolic nature. This simple structural change is all it takes to create Drostanolone, and from here the small/short Propionate ester is attached in order to control the hormone’s release time. Drostanolone Enanthate can also be found through some underground labs, which does not have to be injected as frequently, but it is somewhat rare compared to the Propionate version. The majority of all Masteron on the market will be Drostanolone Propionate.
On a functional basis, Masteron is well-known for being one of the only anabolic steroids with strong anti-estrogenic properties. Not only does this steroid carry no estrogenic activity, but it can actually act as an anti-estrogen in the body. This is why it has been effective in the treatment of breast cancer. In fact, the combination of Masteron and Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) has been shown to be far more effective than chemotherapy in the treatment of inoperable breast cancer in postmenopausal women. This also makes it a popular steroid among bodybuilders as it could actually prohibit the need for an anti-estrogen when used in the right cycle. This will also prove advantageous during the cutting phase due to the hardening effects it can provide.Side Effects of Masteron:
In many ways, Masteron is a fairly side effect friendly anabolic steroid.
Side effects of Masteron use most certainly exist, but most men will find this steroid highly tolerable. As for females, virilization symptoms can be strong with this steroid, but we will also find they can be managed with the right plan. In order to understand the side effects of Masteron, we have broken them down into their separate categories along with all you need to know.
