Sustanon (4x testosterone blend)
What is Sustanon used for
Testosterone is essential for the development and maintenance of reproductive tissue such as testis, prostate, epididymis, seminal vesicles and penis as well as other characteristic male properties such as increased muscle strength, hair growth etc.
Sustanon is approved for replacement therapy for confirmed testosterone deficiency in males. Your doctor may prescribe Sustanon for other reasons. The drug was developed as a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) solution, and it was thought at the time that the different esters would be able to provide a constant release of Testosterone over a months time. Sustanon is a blend of different estered testosterones (4 of them): testosterone propionate - 30 mg, testosterone phenylpropionate - 60 mg, testosterone isocaproate - 60mg, and testosterone decanoate - 100 mg.
For further information please talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
