Testosterone-Suspension is the most powerful testosterone form we have at our disposal, and it’s not because its testosterone is special. Unlike other testosterone forms, such as Testosterone-Enanthate or Testosterone-Propionate, Testosterone-Suspension has no ester attached, and this means every last milligram of every injection is that of pure testosterone. Of course, as there is no ester attached this means its active duration is remarkably short lived, but it also means its initial activity is almost instantaneous. On its surface, you might think a lot of performance enhancers supplement with Testosterone-Suspension, but this isn’t the case. First and foremost, to supplement with this testosterone form, we must inject at a minimum once every day, with twice daily injections often being warranted. Further, due to its nature, largely because of the nature of its suspension Testosterone-Suspension injections can be very painful; this is not the case with any other testosterone form. In any case, the only performance enhancers who will supplement with this form are in most cases far advanced in anabolic steroid supplementation, or as we’ll see in one instance, performance athletes looking to beat a drug test.
Testosterone-Suspension – The Basics:
Of all testosterone forms, Testosterone-Suspension is the purest simply because it lacks an ester in the compound. This does not mean other forms are not pure, it simply means the total suspension compound is comprised of only testosterone. In short, this is largely what defines Testosterone-Suspension, and like all testosterone forms its direct mode of action is the same. At any rate, as you may have guessed, it doesn’t take much testosterone in the Suspension form to yield a positive result.
At any rate, as there is no ester attached, Testosterone-Suspension does not carry a traditional half-life in an esterified sense; it can’t as there is no ester. Nevertheless, it does possess a total activity time, giving it a half-life of slightly less than 24 hours. This is a very short lived half-life; the only common testosterone form that carries a shorter half-life is Testosterone-Propionate carrying a half-life of approximately 3.5 days. Beyond these factors; its ester free nature and unusually short half-life, the one thing that truly separates Testosterone-Suspension from other testosterone compounds is the manner by-which it exist. Most all testosterone forms are suspended in oil, where Testosterone-Suspension is suspended in water.
Like all testosterone forms, once in the body Testosterone-Suspension performs just as you may have already guessed; like testosterone. Every trait shared by all testosterone forms is shared by Suspension; however, many performance enhancers do report more water retention with this form. This really isn’t all that surprising, for as there’s more active testosterone in-which to pull from on a per milligram basis there’s more to aromatize. In any case, by its direct mode of action, Testosterone-Suspension will provide the following:
- Increased Nitrogen Retention
- Increased Protein Synthesis
- Increased Red Blood Cell Count
- Increased IGF-1 Production
- Decreased Glucocorticoid Production
It’s not too hard to see why these are highly welcomed traits, as they translate into almost anything and everything a performance enhancing athlete could be after. Through its traits, Testosterone-Suspension can provide buildups in strength and lean tissue, increase recovery times and improve stamina and endurance and of course, reduce body-fat by enhancing ones total metabolic rate.
For athletes who are drug tested, if they are going to supplement with a testosterone hormone it’s not uncommon for them to make Suspension their choice. Because its nature is so rapid, Testosterone-Suspension carries an active detection time of only 48 hours; sometimes the athlete can pass in as little as 24 hours, but 48 is assured. It’s crucial to keep in mind; this means 48 after your last injection. It’s not hard at all to see how this might be useful for an athlete, especially if he has at least a general idea regarding when testing will occur. Of course, if he has absolutely no idea it’s still a gamble, but one many athletes are willing to take; when we say many, that’s exactly what we mean. Perhaps a bit off topic, but we assure you contrary to what you’ve been told, when it comes to elite level athletics the vast majority are performance enhancers on some level.
Testosterone suspension is an injectable preparation containing unesterfied testosterone in a water base. Among athletes, testosterone suspension has a reputation of being an extremely potent injectable, often ranked highest among the testosterones. Very fast acting, testosterone suspension will sustain elevated testosterone levels for only 2-3 days. Athletes will most commonly inject “suspension” daily, at a dosage of 50-100 mg. Although this drug requires frequent injections, it will pass through a needle as fine as a 27 gague insulin. This allows users to hit smaller muscles such as delts for injections. Although this drug is very effective for building muscle mass, its side effects are also very extreme. The testosterone in this compound will convert to estrogen very quickly, and has a reputation of being the worst testosterone to use when wishing to avoid water bloat. Gynocomastia is also seen very quickly with this drug, and quite often cannot be used without an anti-estrogen. Blood pressure and kidney functions should also be looked at during heavy use. Suspension is not a common drug outside the U.S. and Canada, so with the disappearing “real” American versions, availability has become very scarce. There are currently many fakes being circulated, with real products seen only rarely. Since this is a water based injectable, I would be very wary of using a counterfeit. It is more likely bacteria would be a problem with water based products and if the fake was not made to laboratory standards (most are not) your health could be at risk.
