Active substance: Boldenone Undecylenate
Tradenames: Equipoise, Ganabol, Pays, Sibolin, Boldenon, Venobol
It is a testosterone derived anabolic androgenic steroid, with a high anabolic component and a mild androgenic one. The undecylenate ester makes the steroid being released in the bloodstream at a slow rate. Equipoise it is a veterinary steroid used mostly on horses. In the '50s boldenone undecylenate was released on the human grade pharmaceutical market but was discontinued in the '70s.
Boldenone was made in an attempt to creat a injectable version of Dianabol. But the new steroid was nothing like Dianabol; it was a total new steroid. Simply, we can think of Equipoise, chemically at least, as a metandrostenolon wihtout the c17-alpha methyl group.
Equipoise has the same anabolic effect as testosterone but half of its androgenic activity. But in practice, the muscle mass gained is not as much when compared with the results obtained with testosterone (but the strenght increasesthe same from the both steroids).
Equipoise can increase the number of red blood cells, much more then other steroids. The beneficial effects of this steroid are very popular among athletes; is a steroid that gained much popularity in recent years. It is considered by many a stronger Deca-Durabolin, but this is wrong. It is a weaker muscle builder than Deca-Durabolin, but promotes greater strength gains and vascularization.
Side effects with this steroid are generally mild. Structurally it can convert to estrogen but does not have a too high affinity to do so. Equipoise only aromatizes at approximately 50% the rate of testosterone. Estrogenic side effects are possible, but the odds are highly in the individual’s favor compared to testosterone. Side effects like water retention, fat accumulation and gynecomastia are theoretically possible but at low to moderate doses are unlikely to occur.
The is also true for the androgenic side effects: oily skin, acne and baldness can occur, but at highe doses. Although a mild steroid it may have a suppressive effect on the production of testosterone. Using Clomid and Nolvadex post-cycle may be necessary, especially when doing a long cycle.
It is administered at least once a week in doses of 200-600 mg per week. It seems that the optimal dose is 600 mg / week. Over this dose there are no impressive gains, but under this does the gains are noticeably lower. The original evrsions come in 25 mg vials or 50 mg vials, so injecting it can be difficult. It can become uncomfortable because of the large number of injections. Lower doses may be administered once every two days to spread evenly the weekly dose. The underground products come in more higher concentrations.
The price is usually small, is a versatile and easy to find, so it will always be a popular steroid.
