+ 3 Effects of different testosterone esters
Effects of different testosterone esters
There are many different esters used in conjunction with anabolic androgenic steroids, but again, they all have the same purpose. The esters differ only in their ability to reduce the water solubility of the steroid. An ester like propionate can slow down the release of a steroid by a few days while decanoate slows it down by +/- 15 days. Ether has no effect on the parent steroid in terms of conversion to estrogen or DHT, nor does it affect overall muscle building. So the differences in results and side effects that can be seen by bodybuilders who have used different esters with the same steroid are only a matter of time.
Testosterone enanthate causes estrogen-related problems more readily than sustanon, all because the enanthate will peak sooner. The same applies to testosterone suspension, it will be worse in terms of gynecomastia and gaining water, because it peaks very quickly (the situation is similar with propionate). In this case you should not expect testosterone peak in the blood in weeks, we just need a few days. Given the same level of testosterone in the blood, there will be no difference in terms of aromatization or DHT if we are talking about different esters. There is simply no mechanism that can contribute to this.
There is only one technical difference between the esters, and that is the weight. The heavier the chain, the greater the total weight. For example, testosterone enanthate, 250mg of esterified steroid equals 180mg of free testosterone. 70mg of each 250mg injection is the weight of the ester. If we are being completely meticulous, it is clear that enanthant is slightly better than cipionate (this is contrary to public opinion), because its chain has one less carbon atom (hence the ester weight is lower). Clearly, the leader of this trio would be propionate.
In fact, esters are very important and interesting, but there is no magic here. Ether oils work in a perfectly understandable and explainable manner and do not change the activity of the parent steroid in any way, apart from the timing of its release. In fact, there are a lot of false stereotypes floating around about different testosterone esters, so feel free to ignore them. Testosterone is testosterone, full stop. If someone tells you that propionate is better than enanthate and that sustanon is a nuclear mix, such a person obviously needs to upgrade his knowledge
