10 ML VIAL FOR INJECTION USE ONLY
Sustanon 500 Summary:
Sustanon 500 is the most concentrated and potent version of the Sustanon drugs, containing 500mg of the active compound for every milliliter of injectable solution. This makes it a popular choice for athletes with a lot of experience in anabolics or those looking to gain a lot of size. It is almost exclusively used for periods of mass and strength gains. Dosing stands at 250 to 2000 milligrams, taken weekly, in line with its long half-life of around 15 to 18 days.
Chemistry and composition
Sustanon is not a single chemical, but a composite formula made up of four types of testosterone products. Most of which are commonly available for use on their own. However, while these are all separate products and ingredients mixed, they all have the same basic chemical structure, and function the same way in the body. They both have the same ranked potency as conventional testosterone, with an anabolic:androgenic ratio of 100:100 (meaning they are equally as androgenic and anabolic and have moderate to strong potency). The only difference is in the speed at which they are released and metabolized in the body after being injected.
Each ingredient has a different chemical delivery agent, called an ester, attached to it, in order to control its release.
The ingredients in the mix include:
- 60 milligrams of testosterone propionate, which has a half-life of 4.5 days
- 120 milligrams of testosterone phenylpropionate, which also has a half-life of 4.5 days
- 120 milligrams of testosterone isocaproate, which also has a half-life of 9 days
- 200 milligrams of testosterone decanoate, which also has a half-life of 9 days
The result is a compound that has a half-life of 16-18 days overall. However, it is touted to help provide a more peaked effect in the body by causing a more sustained maximal release than other long-lasting chemicals.
As indicated above, this solution is injected intramuscularly. Popular sites of injection include the buttocks, where the gluteal muscle groups are, or the side of the shoulder, where the lateral deltoid muscle is. These are also alternated to prevent soreness or infection at any site.
Common dosing and length of use
Due to its potent, long-lasting, and relatively inefficient nature, Sustanon 500 is normally used over longer periods of 12 weeks up to one year, with the goal of mass and strength gains in mind.
Dosing changes occur due to the different needs of different genders, where women would be more sensitive to an anabolic stimulus, or due to experience with anabolics, where more seasoned users would need higher doses for higher relative effects. This is the reason why we propose below a general outline of dosing for different populations:
For males, beginners would use 250 to 500 milligrams per week, while intermediate users would often employ between 500 milligrams every 5 to 7 days. Finally, seasoned users with a rich history of anabolic use would use from 1000 to 2000 milligrams per week
For females, however, use of this compound is not recommended due to virilization risk, regardless of the user’s experience.
As with any drug on the market, the excessive or irresponsible use of testosterone, in any form, can elicit unwanted effects. This can be directly caused by the increased testosterone in the body, or by its metabolites caused by the processing of the chemical downstream in the body. Below, we examine both.
Direct (induced by chemical)
- A drop, or complete end to the endogenous production of testosterone in the body
- A rise in heart size, with higher unhealthy LDL cholesterol and blood vessel stiffness
- Mild liver strain, which can cause more permanent damage to the organ if Sustanon’s use is continued over time
Indirect (induced by metabolization)
- High estrogen levels in the body, causing problems, such as water retention and fat gain and high blood pressure, caused by the processing of some of the testosterone into estrogen (a process known as aromatization)
- Increased dihydrotestosterone levels, which can cause androgenic effects like oily skin and acne, hair loss faster in genetically at-risk people, and virilizing effects in any female user
Storing Sustanon 500 mg/ml vials
How Sustanon is stored, as well as used, is key to its efficacy and safety. Ideally, the agent should be stored in a dry place below 30 degrees Celsius, and kept away from children.
