Parabolan is five times stronger than testosterone, and helps greatly encourage protein synthesis and muscle development. Bodybuilders utilizing Parabolan should expect a fast increase of lean solid muscle and a good boost in body strength and muscle hardness. Parabolan is effective both in bulking and cutting cycles. It has a duel benefit of burning fat and reducing water retention.
There is no injectable AAS within our arsenal which binds to the androgen receptor (AR) as well as Parabolan/Trenbolone does. This is principal reason that Parabolan has been in such demand for use as a precontest agent. Androgen Receptors are located within both fat and muscle tissue cells. They react on the AR inside muscle cells to encourage development but they also act directly on the AR in fat cells to affect fat burning. The stronger the androgen attaches to the AR the greater the lipolytic (fat reducing) effect on adipose (fat) tissues. An additional benefit with certain steroids, like Parabolan, also increase the amount of AR within the fat and muscle tissue.
Parabolan is not affected by aromatase or 5alpha-reductase. This means it becomes neither stronger nor weaker in androgen responsive target tissues, and is a trait usually shared by DHT (DyhydroTestosterone) derived steroids like Proviron. Since Parabolan is of course a Trenbolone, it may not be actually a DHT derived but rather it happens to be obtained from 19-Nor-Testosterone. Parabolan does not have any estrogenic activity and it might reduce serum estradiol levels inside the body. It can be a rather strong anabolic and androgenic compound (five times stronger than testosterone in both categories!), and it binds effectively to the androgen receptors.
A big reason of why Parabolan Stacks so well with many other steroids is that it causes muscle tissue increase and fat loss almost simultaneously. It has the ability to be a nutrient partitioning agent. Essentially when taking Parabolan an increased amount of the foods you eat will become muscle mass and less will end up as fat.
Parabolan also noticeably boosts the level of IGF-1 inside muscle tissue, which by itself is an incredibly anabolic hormone. In addition, not only will it raise the amounts of IGF-1 inside muscle tissue above two fold, it will cause muscle satellite cells (cells which restore damaged muscle tissue) to be considerably more sensitive to IGF-1 and various other growth factors.
Parabolan also happens to bind strongly to the glucocorticoid receptor as well, which in turn triggers a nice anti-catabolic effect. This may help explain why lower doses seem to function effectively and why it aids in fat loss. Like the majority of anabolic androgenic steroids Trenbolone significantly promotes nitrogen retention within the muscle tissue, increases red blood cell count and substantially decreases and blocks glucocorticoid steroids. It can also considerably enhance cell repair and regeneration, thus accelerating the recovery process in the body. Even though many steroids offer these similar qualities Trenbolone simply does it better than the rest.
